Today’s project features the Stampin’ Up! Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set!!
I love this stamp set and have been wanting to create with it for sometime. However, with very limited supplies I had to get creative.
I decided to start out working with Black and White. I then decided to add a bit of color or pop. That’s when I tossed in Tempting Turquoise.
With the flowers in the background it appears the dragonfly is just flying through the meadow. I loved it!!
- Using Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Write Markers I colored my dragonfly wings with a Tempting Turquoise Marker and his body with a Basic Black.
- I stamped it once on my white square.
- I colored my dragonfly a second time and stamped it a second time on scrap paper.
- Tip: Using scissors I cut the wings out of my dragonfly and used mini glue dots to added them to my original dragonfly. This gave him life!!
- I stamped the word FRIEND in Basic Black.
Dragonfly Square Layers
- Cut a 3″ x 3″ piece of Tempting Turquoise piece of cardstock. This is your bottom layer.
- Cut a 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ piece of Basic Black Cardstock and layer it on top of your Tempting Turquoise layer.
- Cut a 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock and layer it on top of your Basic Black. This layer is for your Dragonfly and Sentiment.
- Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock and fold it in half. This is your base!
- Using a StazOn Black Stamp Pad to stamp the flowers randomly along the base of your card.
- Ink you the random dots in Tempting Turquoise and stamp them in the open spaces. Keep in mind… less is more!
- Tip: I liked it when my flowers didn’t overlap. Give it try and see how you like it!!
Black and White!!
Here is a monochromatic card featuring the lovely dragonfly, background and the Stampin’ Up! Brick Embossing Folder.
I hope you enjoy today’s cards!
Until next time… Have a Blessed Day!!

I have to admit that I have watched your You- Tube videos ALL of them or at least over 100 it seems from Friday until now! I have been sick and in bed. I was thinking of some Christmss cards and I searched and you appeared! Wow you are so talented in so many ways. Through the coughing and sneezing of being sick and me insting that my family still carried out Labor Day weekend plans, I got to watch your videos! I am truly so inspired! I have 4 card swaps and lets just say my fingers was hitting the print button to get demensions! I live in KY but I would love to gets few of my crafting friends together and travel to one of your Stamp Camps next year. Another confession I am a SU Demo. I do small classes and gatherings with Church Ladies. You have inspired me to reach new goals. I contacted my upline via email and was like have you seen Brandys cards! You have made my weekend! Even being sick I still feel like I have accomplished so much even though it’s just notes lol!! Thank you, thank you for all you do!
Brandy I would love to see you do this card on Youtube. Miss seeing you on there. You do good work and I hope to see you active again on youtube soon. Love this stamp set. Especially the black and white one.
It’s so funny Brandy,I’m new at this stamping stuff! You sent me a catalog and of all the stamp sets that one was the last one I would have ordered! Didn’t much care for it at all, now it’s the first one I want to order! Your two cards are just beautiful!! Thank you for sharing….Sheryle f.

Love both cards Brandy!! It is an awesome set!
I love this card and what you did to put it together. Is this set still available? I have not seen a catalog in such a long time.
I am going over to my daughter’s today and we are going to make these 2 cards! I love the black and white one!
I love both cards and I can see that the color combination for these cards are endless. I always enjoy your cards and you are absolutely “Awesomely Artistic.”
I love both cards, I can’t wait to use my Awesomely Artistic stamp set. I think the color combinations for these cards are endless. Thanks for sharing, you are absolutely Awesomely Artistic.
Wow, love it. It really works with that pop of colour.
Two lovely cards but I must say I think I like the black and white one. For me it stands out more
and I just like it. Hope your collection of box tops goes well this year .
WOW!!! I absolutely LOVE the card with the turquoise! You made me a fan of a simple card. Thanks. 🙂
Thank you for always providing a variety of options pertaining to the same stamp. I really like this card as I really love Dragonflies.
Hello Brandy. I really like both of the cards!
Thanks for sharing!!!
Wow, what a beautiful card. Can’t wait to get this stamp set..
Great idea using Awesomely Artistic! Miss seeing you make the videos. I must have missed where you told all of us why you have limited supplies. Take care from Alabama.
Always look forward to seeing EVERYTHING you create. I think you’re the BEST at what you do!!!!!!
Wow, what a beautiful card. I love the Tempting Turquoise, one of my favs.
Keep the projects coming, I love seeing everything you make, it’s an inspiration for me…..
Thanks very much for sharing all your work.
I love the simplicity with a splash of color. I also like the monochromatic card, elegant.
Beautiful – thanks for posting these… and the PTA bulletin boards were awesome – you’re a dynamo! So busy!
I love this card it’s so simple but really striking and I really like your monochromatic version as well!! I have missed you on YouTube but look forward to seeing your future projects 🙂
Absolutely love your cards. In particular, I enjoyed your tutorial “An Open Heart”. I followed it quite closely and made a beautiful set of boxed cards for a gift.
Thank you so much for the inspiration you provide your followers. I always look forward to seeing what you have been making.
I live across the Pond so it’s out of the question for me to attend your workshops, but it’s wonderful to be able to follow you on-line and enjoy your Posts and Tutorials.
Take good care and God Bless.
Just LOVE your cards, especially the turquoise one, FAB!
Just a quick note to let you know how pleased I am to see that you’re using some of the “old” products from S.U. Most local demonstrators I’ve seen demo only the newer “in colors,” and don’t feature any of the ones we’ve already purchased. I suppose it’s a way of continuing the “upselling process,” but even though I have enough S.U. supplies to open my own store, I don’t always know what to do with what I’ve already bought! I’m glad to see that you continue to use previous colors that I already have and now will use in the near future because of your showing it!
I also like the fact that you show the same “components” in a card with different color combinations!! I find that extremely helpful!!
Looking forward to more of your card ideas and videos!!
Brandy – Love this! Have to order this stamp set. The catalog shows other cards using it. Awesome.
TFS! Great ideas! I didn’t get this one yet, but now I know I need it! Thanks Brandy!
Two beautiful cards, I especially like the pop of Tempting Turquoise on the first one.
I love both of your cards Brandy. This set is awesome, maybe that is why it is called …Awesomely Artistic.
