The hop starts over at Taylor Usry's blog where you'll find a complete list of participating designers who just love sharing ideas with you! It's quite an impressive list, but don't worry, you have until Thursday, February 17th at 6:00 pm EST to leave a comment on the various blogs. Taylor will use random.org to select the winners from the various blogs and all winners will be announced on Friday. This is a great way to get new ideas and inspiration from all these talented artists! You probably reached my blog from fellow Dream Team member Laura's blog, if not, check it out then hop back here to continue the fun!
We are, of course, posting ideas with a Valentine/Love theme. The card I chose for the hop is one of my favorites from the new Dreamweaver Stencils designs that were just released at CHA. I've shown a similar card before, but this one just has such a romantic feel to it, that I couldn't resist using it for this hop.
It's very easy. Run the Small Damask (LJ907) stencil and white cardstock through your Big Shot (or any personal die cut machine) then trim it around the edge of the embossed design. Round the corners, use a 1/2" or 3/4" stencil brush to sweep Brilliance Beige ink from the edge toward the center, making sure you keep turning the design until all four sides have been done. Do the same technique using the new Tole Heart (LL3010). Mount the damask layer onto dark brown cardstock, and use foam mounting tape to layer the heart on the background. Add a beautiful wide red ribbon for the finishing touch. Who could ever doubt that you love them if you gave them this beautiful card!
So, keep hopping to Dream Team member Wendy's blog for more great ideas! Go to Taylor Usry's blog for the complete list, but don't forget to check all the Dream Team blogs as well as the DREAM it UP! blog.
