Hambo Hoedown - CASE the Gallery

This week's Hambo Hoedown challenge is to use this Dragonfly image:

and CASE a card from the Hambo gallery (

I kinda backed into this one. I actually had an idea for a technique I wanted to use with the dragonfly, so I found an embossed image in the gallery to CASE - the chipmunk card in the Animals gallery.

Here's my card (I made two - one for each sentiment provided with the image):

I stamped a script text image over the printed dragonflies and heat-embossed it using white EP. Then I dragged three different inks over the images - SU Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Island Indigo. I love that color combination! I cut out the images and put this one on one of my hoarded MS tags.

The DSP is SU Beyond the Garden, and the card stock is Island Indigo and Wild Wasabi. The button is SU.

Here's my other card:

Just a different doily/tag and sentiment.

I used this sketch for both cards:

but of course it is LAST week's sketch so it's too late to link. I may comment over there, anyway.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. That dragonfly is brilliant!

  2. Both are gorgeous! I love the background flower paper it's dainty flowers are a perfect fit with the dragonflies. How did you get such a perfect match of colors to the dragonflies? Beautiful! So glad you played with us at Hambo Hoedown, come join us again soon!

  3. Completely love what you did with the dragonfly! So very cute! Thanks for joining in on the Hoedown!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
