Cards using Dapper Denim - My Favorite Retiring "In Color"

Dapper Denim is the one retiring 2015-17 In Color that I am going to miss.  I made sure I purchased a full pack of card stock and an ink refill to have on hand.  Below are two cards I've made using Dapper Denim as the focus.

Glitter Covered Dragonfly

I love the Dragonfly on this card.  I first stamped it using the Dapper Denim stamp pad. To make it shimmer & shine,  I tapped it with versamark all over and poured Heat & Stick powder over the entire dragonfly. Then I heated it briefly until it started to shine. Finally I sprinkled the dragonfly with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter. Very simple and it is beautiful!

Dapper Denim with Flourish

The Flourishing Phrases stamp set was used to make an all over background. I used Dapper Denim ink on Dapper Denim card stock.  The Flourish was then cut out of Vellum Card stock using the Flourish Thinlits.  I am so glad this stamp set & thinlits are being carried over into the next annual catalog!

For the inside of the card I stamped flourishes and left an area blank
for a stamped sentiment or handwritten note.
