Stamp It Australia Sneak Peak

I mentioned yesterday that Crafter's Companion was launching a gorgeous new Stamp It Australia stamp collection at CHA in a few days.  Well, I'm happy to share a little sneak peak of one of the stamps here on my blog today.

The stamp I used is from the Spring set and it is a beautiful dragonfly.  I stamped out the image and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I only used a few - BT2, BT4, JG1, CR1, CR3.  After I colored the image I fussy cut it out and added Star Dust Stickles to the wings for a bit of sparkle.

I pulled out some Kraft paper and made a 6" x 6" card base using my Ultimate Tool.  Then I grabbed my new Graphic 45 -Birdsong paper pad and layered both sides of Cherry Blossom onto the Kraft base.  I stamped out a Happy Birthday sentiment from the same set and made it the focus of my card by matting it with the Cherry Blossom and Kraft paper.  I centered it on the card and used dimensional adhesive squares to adhere it.

When the Stickles dried on my dragonfly, I used the same dimensional adhesive squares to adhere it to the card.  I just cut up a square to fit under the body of the little cutie.  I pulled some pearls out from my stash and made a whimsical flight trail across the card.

I like it and I hope you do too!  Please go check out some more sneak peaks on the other Crafter's Companion DT blogs.  You can find the links on the sidebar at Crafter's Companion.  And there should also be a few peaks on the Crafter's Companion Facebook page.  This is a really awesome stamp release.  You are going to want to add most if not all of these to your stamp collection.  I know I will be!
