If you missed day 2 click here to be inspired.

Welcome to the annual Dreamweaver and Woodware Christmas in August extravaganza week! Monday through Saturday we will be knocking your Christmas stockings off with fun and inspirational ideas for the upcoming holidays. All that you need to do is hop back and forth across the "pond" on each day, oohing and aaahhhing as you go, and leaving us plenty of holiday love. In return, you'll be entered to randomly win one prize package for a UK commenter, and a second prize package for a US commenter, featuring products distributed in the UK by Woodware...including Dreamweaver and Stampendous!

Prize includes four stencils, one die, and two stamps, selection may vary.

Here's what I've created for today:

Monica & Friend from Stampendous
LS91 Season's Greetings from Dreamweaver Stencils

When opened, you can see the string of Christmas lights
LM280 Xmas lights border from Dreamweaver Stencils

This sweet combination of Dreamweaver Stencils and a Stampendous House Mouse design go so well together. Plus it was easy to do!

  • Stamp the Monica & Friend House Mouse design with Memento Tuxedo Black on cardstock
  • Color with COPIC markers, or the markers you like to use
  • Paint glue on the light bulb and sprinkle with Stickles Dry Glitter Christmas Red
  • Use a small paint brush to stipple "snow" around the ground with Glossy White Embossing Paste from Dreamweaver
  • Sprinkle the wet paste with Crystal glitter or Stickles Dry Glitter Distress Rock Candy
  • Set aside to dry
  • Tape the Xmas lights border stencil to white cardstock with removable tape
  • Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Glossy Green Embossing Paste
  • Remove stencil and place in water for cleaning later
  • Use a cut straw or small spoon to sprinkle the lights with glitter (I used Stickles Dry Fine Glitter True Blue, Christmas Red, and Eucalyptus) carefully taping off after each color, try to avoid the cord
  • Let dry
  • Paste the Season's Greetings with the Glossy Green Embossing Paste also
  • Remove the stencil and place in water for cleaning later
  • Use a cut straw or small spoon to apply Christmas Red glitter to the S and G only
  • Let dry
  • Assemble as shown
Remember, the products featured here can be purchased in the UK from stores listed on the Woodware UK site

Now's the time for you to leave a comment and move on to the next designer for today:

Happy Creating,
Louise

I like the combination of stamps and stencils that you have used, the tree lights border stencil is perfect with Monica and friend.
