Tiny Treats and Treasures

It's week three of our Dreamweaver Stencils May designer challenge. This month we were given the challenge to create little gifts or treats to use for various occasions such as shower favors, party favors, thank you gifts, and so on. We hope you will join our challenge by either linking your creation over on the DREAM it UP! blog using the linking tool, or by emailing a photo of it to, you could win a beautiful new stencil of your choice. 
This week I have created a thank you treat that could be used for a number of events: a teachers' appreciation lunch, a bridal shower (you could do a recipe shower),  thank you favors for volunteers, like I said, any number of events.
LL3032 - Cherries 

LL3032 - Cherries (just the frame), and LS1006 - Thanks

This is so easy to to make. Here are the simple steps:

  • Tape the Cherries stencil to white cardstock with removable tape
  • Use 1/4" stencil brushes to apply various colors of inks to the design, using the Picasso (LL332) as a shield and to add a vein to the leaves
  • Remove and clean the stencil
  • Return the stencil to the colored image and tape back in place
  • Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Translucent Embossing Paste over the image
  • Remove stencil and place in water for cleaning, let paste dry
  • Tape the clean, dry Cherries stencil to another piece of white cardstock 
  • Use the 1/4" stencil brush to apply red ink in the border checkerboard only
  • Remove and clean the stencil
  • Place the Thanks stencil across the center of the checkerboard frame and tape in place
  • Use a 1/2" stencil brush to apply brown ink to the word
  • Remove and clean the stencil
  • Mount onto coordinating papers and attach a small bag of Sour Cherry Balls between the layers
