Spring Fling Blog Hop at STAMPlorations

Today I am joining my teammates at STAMPlorations to kick off our Spring Fling blog hop and linky party, which this year comes later than usual due to the circumstances.
This event is a special series of 3 posts celebrating the spring season, hop with us and leave comments on the STAMPlorations post and the DT blogs and/or link a project of your own to be in a chance to win prizes!!!


My contribution gives pride of place to the Dragonfly Cover Plate (part of the Spring Fling promotion - see below for details)


First I applied double sided adhesive to a piece of card.

I die-cut the cover plate from the coloured cardstock and applied it on top of the adhesive. I inlaid back into place several pieces, paying particular attention to the dragonfly body and wings.
I tried to apply the pieces as lightly as I could since I wanted to remove them later.

With the Dragonfly protected, I poured gold glitter all over the card.

Next I removed the card pieces from the wings and poured blue glitter on top. Taking off any remaining cardstock bits I applied the green glitter.

My sentiment is also glittered but this time I actually die-cut it from glitter paper, with the Wonderful Word Die (also in the Spring Fling promotion!!!)

Another look with the light shining on the glitter:

  18. Ah mais c'est super cette technique !!!
    Une jolie combinaison de couleurs, glitters (que ça permet d'utiliser !) et grandes découpes ciselées, bravo Christine.
    Il faut que j'essaie... Jamais fait encore, c'est astucieux mĂȘme si c'est sans doute un peu dĂ©licat de retirer/replacer les zones pleines dans ce style de dĂ©coupe j'imagine. En tout cas, ça me donne envie !
