Dreamweaver Stampendous Blog Hop Day 3!



Get ready to be inked, pasted, encrusted, stenciled and stamped! All of this week the Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream Team and the Stampendous Design Teams will be providing some "Dream-pendous" inspiration for you, with multiple opportunities to win some fabulous prizes from both companies. Each day this week, you will be directed from both the Stampendous Impressions' blog or the Dream It Up! blog to the players du jour for your oohing and aaahing pleasure. Everyone will be playing on Saturday, the 14th with our final hop for the week. This is your opportunity to see how to mix and mingle your creativity...if you are a stenciler, you will be fascinated at combining stamps with your first love. If you are a stamper, you will be wowed at how stencils can add to your impressions.

Stampendous SSC1146 Mother's Love
Dreamweaver Stencils LM281 Baby Toy Border
My fellow Dream Team Member, Pam Hornschu knew that this stamp set would be perfect for me, after all, I recently found out I'm going to be a Grandma soon! So thanks Pam. and Stampendous. People who know me, know that I love to create Clean and Simple (CAS) style cards most of the time and these stamps lend themselves to that style perfectly. I used Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire to stamp the mother and child image (SSC1146 Mother's Love) on smooth white paper, then mounted it on a small layer of navy cardstock. The Welcome Little One is stamped with the same ink directly on the  small gingham print. I taped the Baby Toy Border (LM218) along the bottom edge of the gingham and used a small stencil brush to add color with the same ink. The gingham was added to a layer of navy cardstock. I added a small sheer white ribbon around it and attached the navy layer to the front of a white card. The mother and child image was attached to the front with foam tape. Use an Inkssentials White Opaque Pen to add eyes to the animals and axels to the wheels.

Be sure to leave comments as you tour the blogs (with your email addy!) for a chance to win one of three combined sets of these Dreamweaver and Stampendous goodies:

Happy Creating,
Louise
