I didn't have time to work on "Two For Tuesday's" cards for today but instead am introducting you to Clipsters? Have you heard of them? No? They're little tiny flags that you create and hook through a paper clip. I think they are the neatest creation! Here's what I mean:

Aren't these adorable? I've had them on my to-do list for a long time and finally sat down and created one. If you search for "Clipsters" on Pinterest you'll see a whole bunch of them. What a great way to impact a card huh?

And there really isn't much to them. You can make them simple or complicated. I added two layered banners, threaded them through the paperclip and folded the back to glue the paper back-to-back. I then stamped a dragonfly from the "Awesomely Artistic" stamp set using So Saffron Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. I hand-cut the dragonfly and added 2-Way Glue and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds:

I glued the dragonfly in place and added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of my clipster to glue it in place. I just LOVE this! Here are all of the Stampin' Up! supplies I used on today's card:
