Stampendous + Dreamweaver=Fun!

Stampendous and Dreamweaver are joining together this week to create some amazing things for you!

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!!!  So be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win!


I must admit this is the first time I've used a Dreamweaver stencil and was a little worried that I would do it wrong, but they are sooooo easy to use and look how perfectly they paired up with Stampendous stamps and glitter! Here's how my card was made-

1.  Tape the ice cream cone stencil to white paper and stipple the cones with Butterscotch and Caramel Adirondack inks.
2.  Apply Zig 2 Way Glue to the ice creams, remove stencil and sprinkle with Lavender, Green and Ice Blue Micro Glitters, shake off and set aside.
Just a side note, I LOVE Stampendous' Micro Glitters!!! They come in beautiful colors and you can see all of them HERE.
3.  There is a glitter/lace technique I like to use and it can also be used with the stencils.  Rub natural soap on the back of a stencil, place it on sticker paper and sprinkle with Green Micro Glitter, rub in and shake off.  Remove stencil, sprinkle with Lavender Micro Glitter, rub in and shake off. Now you have this beautiful background.
4.  Apply bling and mount to glittered paper.
5.Stamp Birthday Calories on a white tag with Black Versamark, sponge edges with Butterscotch ink, trim to fit card and apply a strip of the glitter paper at the bottom.  Tie with ribbons add bling and mount to card.

Come back Friday for another Stampendous/Dreamweaver card!!!!!

Delightful card!!!

I really appreciate it when designers share their nervousness in trying out new techniques. You have no idea how much confidence it gives me to reach out of my comfort zone to also give things a try. Thanks for inspiring me!!
