Thursday Dream Scheme

Another week has flown by, my daughter is finishing up her first week of college! When did this happen!! But, she is happy and excited so I guess I can handle it!
This week at the Dreamweaver Stencils Thursday Dream Scheme we have a free week. These are great because we create so many things that we don't always get the chance to share if we have a specific challenge.  Here are a couple of  cards using new stencils that were released at CHA this summer:

This card couldn't be easier. Tape the new Silhouette stencil (LL3017) to navy blue cardstock, apply Pearlescent Embossing Paste, let it dry, and mount it on coordinating  papers to create a wonderful card.
Here's a bonus for the week. It's not to early to be working on Christmas cards and Dreamweaver released some beautiful new designs, this is one of them:

This was done using the new Holiday Greeting stencil (LJ917) and the cloisonne technique. Tape the stencil to white cardstock and apply Matte Yellow Embossing Paste. Let the paste dry, then place the clean dry stencil back over the paste and use small stencil brushes to apply pigment inks to the paste. Remove the stencil and sprinkle with clear embossing powder, heat to set. If you would like the color to be deeper, put the stencil back over the design, add more color, and repeat the steps to emboss.
Hope you've enjoyed these ideas, don't forget to check out the DREAM it UP! blog and the other designer's blogs too!
Happy Creating,
Louise

Both cards are stunning but I really love the cameo with the very cool background! Love the look of your work always!

The cameo is sooo darling, love the use of the silver with that patterned paper. And the Faux Cloisonné on the Holiday Greetings card is magnificent...that has to be one of my all time favorite techniques. I often forget that the yellow paste is perfect for a base when doing natural motifs like leaves etc. Wonderful cards Louise!

The cameo stencil is so fabulous!!! It is always going to be fabulous no matter how it is used. Both of your cards are fabulous Georgia!!!

Fantastic as usual, Louise! I really love how you did the cameo especially. I just don't know what I would post if you ever made an average card--but I guess I don't have to worry about that, since your work is always extraordinary.

The colors and papers that you used with the Cameo are awesome. Almost a Victorian wallpaper feel. You always do such awesome designs! I think the Holiday Greetings is going to be a big seller. Everything is there in one stencil. The creativity is in the details...
