Day 3 Dreamweaver and Stampendous

Welcome to day 3 of the Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous Blog Hop. We have seen some great ideas so far on how to combine your stencils and the wonderful products from Stampendous. I'm sure today will be no exception.

It's fun in the sun time again with another collaboration between Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils! We'll be playing together all of this week, with a fabulous hop on Friday, August 2nd, featuring a slew of amazing talent from both teams, and of course...prizes!!!

Two prize packages will be given away for the comments left on posts Monday-Thursday, July 29th - August 1st, and one prize will be given away for comments left on the hop day, Friday, August 2nd. Winners will be selected randomly and announced Thursday, August 8th. (Note: USA addresses only, please, due to shipping costs.) Here's what you could win:

Stampendous Surfer and Sandcastle Kiddos • Dreamweaver Hot Air Balloon, Ice Cream Cones, Summer, Mosaic Swirls, Bird Words, and Sandcastle stencils

 Here's what I created:
LL447 - Fleur de lis (new release)
LJ841 - Fleur de lis (background)

  • Tape LL447 Fleur de lis to Aqua cardstock with removable tape
  • Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Matte Black Embossing Paste
  • Sprinkle with Stampendous Teal Mica Flakes (from EJK06 Encrusted Jewel Teal Kit) and press them into the wet paste carefully
  • Sprinkle the whole thing with Sky Blue Embossing Powder (also from EJK06), it has some glitter in it too
  • Remove the stencil and place in water
  • Heat set the powder, be careful of the mica flakes, pull back if they start to smoke!
  • Trim, and mat on a small black mat
  • Repeat the steps for the background except only use the Sky Blue Embossing Powder
  • Trim and mat with strips of black on two sides
  • Mount onto a coordinating card
  • Use foam tape to attach the larger Fleur de lis
It's hard to tell from the pictures, but this has incredible texture to it, and a lot of sparkle!

Now, hop on over to the next in line. Don't forget to leave some love for a chance to win, and just 'cuz it's nice!
