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:
LL319 - Covered Bridge and
LJ811 - Lg tile
This was done using the Faux Tile technique. Here are the steps:

  • Dry emboss the Lg tile stencil on white cardstock with either a light box and stylus or through a die cut machine with a rubber embossing mat
  • Leave the tile stencil in place and add the Covered bridge stencil, lining it up with the right edge of the paper
  • Tape stencils in place with removable tape
  • Use stencil brushes and ink pads to color the design
  • Remove the Covered bridge stencil and add  more color in the background. I used a Picasso (LL332) to add some clouds in the sky
  • Remove the tile stencil and wipe clean with a soft cloth
  • Replace the tile stencil over the design and pat the whole surface with VersaMark clear embossing ink
  • Remove the tile stencil and sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder
  • Heat set and cool
  • Return the tile stencil and pat another coat of VersaMark over the entire surface again
  • Sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder
  • Heat set, go a little slower this time to give the two layers time to heat together and get smoother
  • Stencil Happy Holidays or Season's Greetings on the inside
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

This stencil works so well with the tile technique, but not one that I would have thought of trying, thanks for the idea

A beautiful winter card Louise! Makes me want to make a cup of hot cocoa and sit by the fire!
