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!
