Paper Playtime Delicious Die Cuts #74

Happy Monday, everyone!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!! It's the first Monday of the month so it's time for another super-fun Delicious Die Cuts Challenge at Paper Playtime!!

Our sponsor this challenge is one of our very own Design Team Sisters, Lynn of Boots and Bling Time! The prize is a $20 VISA card! For Challenge #74 use any type of DIE CUT and/or DIE CUTTING machine and make a BUG CARD :)


I'm not a fan of bugs...in fact, I usually run screaming in the opposite direction!! But, I will admit that some bugs are cute, and I've always loved the beauty and delicacy of dragonflies :)


For this card, I used paper from K&Company Specialty Stack. For the base of the card, I used a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Square and then two Grand Squares. The next layer is a Lacy Square.


The frame was created from two Fair Isle Pendant dies, and popped up with foam tape. "Blessed are those who persevere" is from K Andrew Designs Scripture Sayings stamp set. Click HERE to purchase your own set. I used Peeled Paint Distress Ink for the sentiment and to ink all of the edges. The dragonfly is from Picturesque, and I covered him with clear micro-beads.


Here's another shot to show you the shimmer in the micro-beads. The gems are from The Paper Studio and Recollections.


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Paper Playtime to see the amazing projects my fabulous Design Team Sisters have created!! Then link up your project with a bug...I can't wait to see what you create :)

  18. My sweet and talented friend, this is exquisite! (You make me use that word an awful lot.) The colors are so serene and full of nature's essence... why do you always make me add paper to my wish list? ;) This is gorgeous. Of course I love all of the Spellbinders, fluffy bow, and sparkly flourishes (best things ever), but my favorite parts are the sentiment and that stunning dragonfly. You know I adore microbead work and your usage here is phenomenal. Not only the placement, but the paper you used beneath it is perfection. I always leave your blog a very happy camper. :o) Have a twinkly night, my sweetest friend!

    Hugs and blessings!

  29. The first thing I thought of is "what brand is that paper, it's gorgeous". I'm not surprised it's K & Co. They do make some beautiful watercolor type paper. It's a lovely card Lisa. I'm pinning this one to possibly scraplift later!
