Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous Blog Hop!


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 created:
Dreamweaver Stencils LL393 - Weathervane
this will be available soon, it was just re-released for summer CHA

Steps:
  • Cut a piece of Dreamweaver Double-sided mounting paper slightly larger then the stencil in each direction
  • Apply Dreamweaver Handmade Hawaiian Soap to the back of the weathervane stencil
  • Use a large stencil brush to brush any soap flakes out of the stencil openings or off the surface of the stencil (front and back)
  • Remove the release paper from the double-side mounting paper and center the stencil, soap side down, onto the sticky surface
  • Use the release paper to press the stencil down, making sure all the small bridges of the stencil are adhered well
  • Sprinkle all the exposed sticky surface with Stampendous Aged Teal Embossing Enamel (from the Encrusted Jewel Teal Kit EJK06)
  • Tap off extra powder and return it to the container
  • Heat the enamel to set it
  • Sprinkle the background with Crystal glitter
  • Mount onto a lime green mat (Bazzill Basics Two Scoops Mint Chip)
  • Make a card with a lime green front and add a piece of coordinating paper (Bazzill Basics Santa Barbara Beach Bum) leaving about 3/4" of the lime green showing at the bottom
  • Place 5 glue dots in a row across the bottom area
  • Sprinkle with the Aged Teal Embossing Enamel and heat set
  • Add the weathervane to the front with foam mounting tape
Don't forget to leave me a comment for a chance to win, and just 'cuz it's nice! Then hop on over to the next in line.

Happy Creating,
Louise
