Plumeria Inspiration



Here is my last flower card for the week.  This one uses a couple of stencils, paste and embossing powders to create a beautiful dimensional affect. Be sure to go to the Stampendous Blog to see what the other designers have for you today, link is at the bottom.
Here is how my card was made;

1.  Randomly paste emboss Stone Background Stencil on Spearmint paper with Dreamweaver Stencil Embossing Paste.  Set aside to dry.
2.  Paste emboss Plumeria Stencil on acetate, remove the stencil and while the paste is still wet sprinkle embossing powders from the Gemstone Embossing Kit onto the image using a straw cut on the diagonal as a spoon. After all of the image is covered with embossing powders of different colors, shake off excess and heat until it bubbles.  Once it has cooled, cut out around the image and glue to the brick stenciled paper.
3.  Stamp Faith Possible in upper left corner with Onyx Black ink and emboss with clear embossing powder.
4.  Place self adhesive pearls in the center of the flowers and randomly place clear rhinestones.  Mount to a Topical Bay colored card.

Stencils and Stamps



Today's card was made using Dreamweaver Stencils which are so much fun to use with sprays, I think it might be my favorite way to use them but I really do like dry embossing with them too.  I love the look you get when they are used with embossing paste, but I am so impatient and it is very hard for me to wait until the embossing paste dries.  

For this card I placed the stencil Tree of Life on a white panel, sprayed with green spray. Once it was dry, the sentiment Faith Possible was stamped with brown ink.

Live Each Day


I'm really happy with how this card turned out, bright and cheery.  The main image is an all in one stamp from Stampendous called "Live Each Day"  so you stamp once and you're done.  The background was made using two different Dreamweaver Stencils, you don't need decorative paper, you can make your own!

Here is how my card was made;
1.  Stamp Live Each Day on white paper with black ink and color with pencils.
2.  Sponge edges with blue ink and layer onto black paper.  Set aside.
3.  Place the Big Dots Stencil at the bottom of a yellow panel and stipple with gesso.  Set aside to dry.
4.  Place Cathedral Windows Stencils on white paper and sponge with Wilted Lilac ink. Remove stencil and sponge with Shaded Lilac ink.  Layer onto black paper, tie with a yellow ribbon and glue to card.
5.  Glue Live Each Day to the card.
