Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Dandy Garden Memories

Happy Tuesday!  Tuesday is sort of a flyover day, right?  Neither the start of the workweek (bleh) – not HAWWWWMP DAY, Mike – and for sure not the END of the workweek (whoo-hoo!) – it’s just sort of a…filler.  It’s cousin, Thursday, has similar identity issues, right?

Today is, however, National Puppy Day!  So…it’s got that going for it!! 😉

My card today has nothing to do with Tuesday – or puppies, for that matter – it’s just a quick and easy card using the truly cool Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, with a matching Dandy Garden Envelope and…a little help from the coordinating Dragonfly Garden Bundle.  Take a look-see:

Thanks to the amazing Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, this one is super easy!

I pulled one of the large cards from the pack and trimmed it down a smidge to accomodate a Bumble Bee mat for the card front.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the matted panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.  I used the same die to cut a Bumblebee mat, then used Liquid Glue to adhere the two die cuts together.

I popped the matted sentiment over the top of the braided trim with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I tied a simple bow from the Mossy Meadow trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I punched some tiny Blackberry Bliss dragonflies using the Dragonflies Punch (bundled with the Dragonfly Garden set) and adhered them with Liquid Glue – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss on a Basic White panel and added some of the pretty wildflowers in Bumble Bee.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

I did absolutely nothing to the already-perfectly-decorated Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes envelope!

Et Voila!  It took me a while to warm up to Memories & More Card Packs (I thought they were ONLY good for scrapbooking – but I was totally wrong!) but…this Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack is gorgeous!  And has SO many cool elements that you can use and use and use to create your card projects.  Or…even scrapbook pages!! 😉  And the Dragonfly Garden Bundle – well – it’s for sure one I hope makes it into the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!!

You know – IN his mouth.  More or less!


You didn’t just take my picture AGAIN, did you, Mom!??

  1. Are there any poses of him where he is NOT cute? I didn’t think so! Every part of him is loaded with sweetness except when he wreaks of pond muck! I love your card. I’m not sure if I ever thanked you for the Memories & More pack so I’ll do it here. Now I want to go open my pack and use it! Have a blessed day.

      It just goes all over the place all willy and nilly! The struggle is real! Thanks, Amy! 🙂

  4. You do like those little dragonflies don’t you! Last week in Louisiana I saw some dragonflies we mistook for small birds they were so big. Anyway, I like this card. Very pretty, and easy is always good.
    Finn knows you are always taking his picture.
