How did this happen????? Where did the last few months of 2010 go??? Where did all of 2010 go?? I really thought that after we sold our business that I would be a woman of leisure, but that hasn't happened. Between teaching classes, golf outings with my daughter, college searches, family trips, helping injured family members and joining the Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Team, I seem to have kept myself busy! How did I ever have time to run a store? Oh well, it's been a fun year.
Here we are at another Dream Schemes Thursday Challenge. This week's theme was "Love in the New Year", which , of course, gets you thinking about Valentine's Day that is right around the corner! This darling new Lovevirds Heart stencil (LL3011) from Dreamweaver Stencils is the perfect image for our challenge this week. I've paired it with one of Dreamweaver's older background stencils LJ833. This card moves away from the traditional red and pink of Valentine's Day to a beautiful combination of Glossy Blue Embossing Paste and Wisteria Ultrafine Glitter (very pale purple). Photos never do justice to glittery cards, but hopefully you get the picture! The shimmer ribbon adds to the over all sparkle of the card.
How did I do it...easy! Tape down your stencil on white linen cardstock, apply Glossy Blue Embossing Paste, remove your stencil and immediately sprinkle with the glitter. The larger palette knife works great on the background stencil.
Here's a close up of the new Lovebirds Heart stencil. The detail in it is just wonderful, and makes it easy to use.
