Dreamweaver Thursday

Welcome to another Stampendous Dreamweaver Thursday! This week our theme has been "Go Climb a Tree!". It just brings back so many memories, both from my own childhood, and my kids. When we lived in Maryland, my husband built our boys a wonderful tree house that all the neighborhood kids LOVED! So many wonderful summer days with a yard full of happy kids. That saying "Enjoy the little things in life" is so true, life has a way of speeding by before we realize it!

Enough of that. Dreamweaver has so many lovely tree stencils, and a couple of dies. Tuesday I shared my summertime version of the Leafless Tree die (if you missed it, click HERE). Today I thought I would share another Dreamweaver die, Tree Line (DG745) in fall colors.

Dies help you create quick, beautiful cards. Here's how I did it:

Die cut the Tree Line on black cardstock and adhere to a yellow mat

Use the Creative Palette and acrylic paints to create a fall colored background paper,  let dry
Die cut the Tree Line from the background paper you created, cut the tops off the trunks

Adhere the background papers to the openings of the black matted image
Use foam tape to add the "leaves" to the tree tops
Stamp the front of an A7 kraft cardstock card using Stampendous Industrial Set (ASCRS03)
Stamp sentiment on a small piece of stamped kraft using Stampendous Happy Greetings Set (SSC1214)

BIG NEWS - Starting next week we will be sharing our creations from the new Stampendous Holiday Catalog. All the coloring was done with Chameleon Color Tones Pens so we'll be having a week long hop with them too.  Of course, what's a hop without some prizes! Don't miss a day of it.

Happy Creating,
