Dreamweaver Challenge for May

The Dreamweaver Stencils monthly challenge continues this week  with more great ideas from the Dream Team members. All of this month, we're presenting ideas for graduations and/or using black and white with a pop of color. May and June are typically the time for grads in the US, but to keep things even more interesting, you can choose to play with our colorway challenge instead.
Obviously, to play along with us, you do not have to have a complicated creation, so pull out your supplies and have some fun! Link your creation to the Dream It Up! blog, or email pics of your creation to Lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com. We love to post your submissions on the blog as well as the Facebook page. Even more, we love to provide you the opportunity to win one of two sets of two stencils by playing along. You have all of May to link as many creations as you'd like! Sorry...winners must be from the US or Canada.
This week I went back to the black and white with a POP of color theme. This darling cat stencil was released in January of this year and is just "purr"-fect for this challenge.


This couldn't be easier! Here are the steps:
  • Tape the Retro sitting cat stencil (LL3020) to white paper with removable tape
  • Use the paste spreader (LM2010) to apply Glossy Black Embossing Paste (DGKP)
  • Remove and clean the stencil, let the paste dry
  • Tape the Waves and dots stencil (LX7012) to white paper with removable tape
  • Use the paste spreader to apply Glossy Black Embossing Paste
  • Remove and clean the stencil, let the paste dry
  • Layer the cat on a small black mat
  • Layer the waves and dots on a small black mat
  • Use foam mounting tape to adhere the cat to the background
  • Add a pretty red ribbon
  • Attach to the front of a red card!
  • Clean and simple, black and white with a POP of red
The rest of the team has some great ideas too. Just click on their names to hop over to their creations.


Happy Creating,
Louise

Your card is fun, retro, and black and white suitable for any occasion. I can't wait to try making it myself.

Great card! I think that background is perfect for the new kitty kats.

Love the retro kitties and the pop of red is perfect match for their "cat-itude."

Love that Retro kitty and background. Perfect in B & W. Your pasting is always so clean, Louise. I'm jealous of you for that, and your attention to detail in stenciling.
