    Dragonfly using Orchid Oasis Vellum and Basic Gray

    Dragonfly using Orchid Oasis Today is the last of the In-Color class ideas. Using the Dragonfly Garden and coordinating Dragonfly punch! However, this Dragonfly using Orchid Oasis and two different grays. Yes, I did mention Vellum in that title… Can you find it?? When I see and think of Dragonflies… I see clear wings. The ones here on the Homestead at least! Might I add that you will need to be SUPER patient for this one! I stamped the dragonfly in Basic Gray ink. It will take several minutes for that ink to dry. It is best to stamp those set aside and work on other things, like cutting! hahaha.…

    Campology with Parakeet Party fun fold idea.

    Campology with Parakeet Party Continuing on the with the 2022-2024 In-Colors. How about this Campology with Parakeet Party and Shaded Spruce?? And for a BIG win a fun fold too!! I went back to a monochromatic look for the one. I really went through all our GORGEOUS greens to see what would go best. The Shaded Spruce really gets that Parakeet Party to POP!! I think that the Basic White inside does not hurt either. What do you think?? Using the Shaded Spruce ink for the background trees and the Evergreen border punch. Have you used that yet?? If not it really is pretty easy. I think a double or…

    Starry Sky and Big Hooray Combining Balmy Blue with Starry Sky and Big Hooray. This was free handed however, I did try the Stamparatus.
