CAS ImaginedWHAT is up with the title of this post?  Well…if you were following Stampin’ Up!s convention announcements you know that “Undefined” is the name of SU’s new line of carve your own stamps!

When I started thinking about something to carve what immediately popped into my head was a dragonfly…you KNOW I LOVE ’em…but SU doesn’t have any.  I was inspired by a beautiful necklace I saw (and I have looked and looked so I can link to it and have not found it…if I do…I will link) and well…I carved my own.

So…the CAS challenge is to be inspired by the song “Butterfly” by Little Mix and the part I liked was “Mama told me not to waste your life, she said spread your wings you little butterfly…okay…I think she REALLY meant dragonfly.  I thought the sentiment “Live the life you’ve imagined was perfect for the song.

The base of the card is whisper white.  I took another piece of Whisper White and stamped my hand carved dragonfly using Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, and Smoky Slate.  I stamped the greeting using Basic Black then added a pierced sun in the background.  I added this panel to the card base using dimensionals then added some rhinestones to finish it off.
