The Occasions, or Spring, Catalog release from Stampin’ Up! is aproaching soon. Here is a sneak peek into one of the items that I feel will be the most popular. Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies projet ideas are already popping up around the internet. In the video I made, I show you one way to use them to enhance an easy cardmaking project. My kids love dragonflies. They are not like butterflies so much, we can hear them buzz by at close range and they are just cool all around. I am very pleased to be able to make projects with a dragonfly and want to stretch my ideas by using these dies.
The card stock, patterned paper and ink were selected to coordinate with one another. I used an Old Olive card base measuring 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ after scored and folded. To decorate the card front, I used a piece of white card stock and patterned paper. The medallion is made from the same, which coordinates with the overall colors and theme. I used a sentiment from All Things Thanks stamp set, also from the upcoming catalog, to match the free and loose mood to the project.
For the die cut, I used Glassine Sheets. They are available now in the Annual Catalog and in the Occasions Catalog there will be Glassine Sheets with a pre printed design. Glassine is easy to work with and is not brittle like vellum. I attached this large die cut to the card using glue dots.

These dragonflies are very easy to use. They can be cut apart to work alone or keep them as a unit and they can fly in chorus. I can not wait to show you the large dies in this set as well. Oh, and a bumble bee! Fun to make and fun for someone to receive! Occasions Catalogs will be mailed out next week, so if you have not contacted me to get your copy, please drop me a note asap. Lets make it together!
