Dreamweaver Gone Wild!

Today is Dreamweaver Thursday for the Stampendous Design Team, and we are still going wild this week! We're all excited to share some fun designs with you for our weekly challenge of "Let's Go Wild!" Stop by the Stampendous Blog each day this week for lots of wild ideas!

Several team members are featuring the new Pen Pattern stamps from the April Stampendous catalog. They are wildly adorable and perfect for adding a few tangles to the design.  Well, not to be outshined, and in keeping with the weekly theme, I'm featuring two of the great elephant stencils from Dreamweaver. These are perfect for adding a little, or a lot of wonderful patterns to the design!

LL3042 Small Elephant Stencil and another saying from

Sten-tangled LL3042 Small Elephant Stencil with a saying from
SSC1115 Birthday Assortment Perfectly Clear Stamps set
For all three cards, I used a Faber-Castell PITT artist pen, in black (S), to outline the image on white cardstock. I colored them with Chameleon Color Tones pens,  YG3, PK3, CG8, and CB (the sten-tangled one also had BG4).  Mounted them on fun colorful cardstock from Bazzill, and added the perfect little sayings that were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.
The great thing is you can keep it simple, like the first two, or add several tangles for a more patterned look.  The Fragments from Stampendous are fun to add to anything using a little glue where you want to add them. Of course, a beautiful ribbon from May Arts always makes a card look better too!

Here's who else has gone wild today!

Happy Creating,

Louise, as always, you have created totally adorable cards. They're all fantastic and look so fun. I would be tickled pink to receive any of them! Pure awesomeness with those polka dots! Love!

Oh, I'm in love!!!!!! These are so pretty! I love the colors and the fact that each card is so different looking and uses the same stencil.
