My 5th “Inspiration by Gwyneth” Post For “The Dragons Den” Blog – August

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog.
Design Team Card


It’s time for another inspiration post from me on the “The Dragons Den” blog. Hopefully I can inspire you with a crafted creation made using some downloads that are available in the Stamping Dragon Designs store.

I hope that you like what I’ve got to show you this time.



This is the card I made –

August Inspiration 02

Below are closer looks at the card

August Inspiration 03     August Inspiration 01

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

  • “Uncle Perrys Gift” – found – Here – in the shop.
  • “Blue Harmony Papers” – found – Here – in the shop.
  • “Simply Lovable Collection CD Rom” – found – Here – in the shop.




For this card I printed out some items from the CD-ROM to use as background elements, cutting a strip of one and putting it across the centre as a paper ribbon.  I went over the edges of this paper ribbon and the shaped panel with a ProMarker to make it stand out.  I also punshed two corner paper punches on the background and the blue Topsy Turvy mat to create interlocking corners.  I printed the dragons digi-stamp out three times, once onto plain cardstock, twice more onto paper already printed with two of the blue backgrounds from the blue harmony kit.  I cut out all of these, making the two blues paper piecing pieces for the two dragons.  I used the blue ProMarker to colour some parts of Uncle Perry and the Blue Grey FlexMarker to put in shading around the lines of both the dragons.  The Wink of Stella pens were used to colour in the parsel and the white gel pen to do Uncle Perry’s eyes and teeth.  I shaped these and used glue gel to attached the pieces image to the card front.


And that is it from me for today. I hope my little creation will inspire you to visit the Stamping Dragon Designs store and have a play with some of the digital downloads available to buy yourself.
