Day 2 Dreamweaver and Stampendous

Welcome to day 2 of the Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous blog hop! We hope you enjoyed the creations from day 1! If you missed them, click here to go to my post from yesterday for the list of participants.

It's fun in the sun time again with another collaboration between Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils! We'll be playing together all of this week, with a fabulous hop on Friday, August 2nd, featuring a slew of amazing talent from both teams, and of course...prizes!!!

Two prize packages will be given away for the comments left on posts Monday-Thursday, July 29th - August 1st, and one prize will be given away for comments left on the hop day, Friday, August 2nd. Winners will be selected randomly and announced Thursday, August 8th. (Note: USA addresses only, please, due to shipping costs.) Here's what you could win:

Stampendous Surfer and Sandcastle Kiddos • Dreamweaver Hot Air Balloon, Ice Cream Cones, Summer, Mosaic Swirls, Bird Words, and Sandcastle stencils



Here's what I came up with for today:

Dreamweaver Stencils new LX7021 - Floral corner
Stampendous SSC1158 - Thoughtful Wishes
This is one of the newly released stencils from Dreamweaver Stencils.
Steps:
  • Tape the stencil to light green cardstock with removable tape
  • Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Dreamweaver Embossing Paste (the regular Matte White)
  • Remove and clean the stencil, let the paste dry
  • Tape the clean, dry stencil back over the dry paste
  • Use 1/4" stencil brushes and the Picasso tool (LL332) to apply ink to the flowers (I used Splendor Ink Pads - Circus and Magic)
  • Let the inks dry or heat with a heat tool
  • Trim the floral layer a little and mount onto a small black mat
  • Adhere to the front of a coordinating color card (the picture shows the card as much more purple than it really is in person)
  • Stamp the saying from Stampendous Thoughtful Wishes cling set (SSC1158) with Archival Jet Black ink on white cardstock
  • Use a deckle scissors around the edge and mount on a small black mat
  • Adhere to the upper right corner with foam tape

Here's the list of today's participants. Be sure to leave them a comment for the chance to win a prize!
