Dreamweaver-Stampendous Blog Hop Day 1!

Welcome to Day 1 of the Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous Faces of Art blog hop! The Dream Team always loves incorporating the great products from Stampendous into our creations.


We were challenged to create using Dreamweaver and Stampendous products, especially two new products from Stampendous, the beautiful Cling Blossom Beauty stamp set that includes the face outline and a large flower, and the matching Blossom Beauty Die Cut Set,  Here's what I created for you today:

LS1003 Dream and LL379 Tall palm trees
This beautiful set from Stampendous was so much fun to work with, and merged perfectly with our wonderful Dreamweaver products! I felt like my girl had a real tropical feel, so I paired her with the Tall Palm Trees stencil (LL379) and the Dream stencil (LS1003). I think this would make a great graduation card. The face and flowers were colored with COPIC markers, and both stencils were paste embossed with Matte Black Embossing Paste. I was a little disappointed in how her cheeks turned out, but for a first try she's not too bad.

Here are our "hoppers"  for Monday:

Happy Creating,
Louise
