Dreamweavers Holiday Challenge...

2nd post of day: Scroll down for Stampendous Blog Hop

I am excited to be joining the Dreamweavers team again this week for the Holiday Challenge! I combined the Teacup Stencil with the Holly and Swirls stencil to create decorative tea cups.


Behind the teacups I inked a background with the Cathedral Windows Large Stencil. I wanted to create a distressed feel, so I inked with a light and darker green randomly. 


Be sure to check out what all the Dreamweavers girls have created today for the challenge! 




Stampendous and Add A Little Dazzle...

Hope you're enjoying all the inspiration featuring Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets and Stampendous Stamps and Essentials this week! 


After die cutting the leaves from the metal, I colored the white metal with Spectrum Noir markers. Next I used blending solution to create a polished stone effect. I love that mottled look for fall leaves!


I covered the Stack Art chipboard pieces with pattern paper and stamped on it with the text from Royal Hearts kit.


I created texture on the chipboard letters with Translucent Embossing Paste and the Cathedral Small stencil.

Supplies Used:
Stampendous (Leaves Die Set, Stack Art Stamps Royal Hearts)
Add A Little Dazzle
Dreamweavers (Translucent Embossing Paste, Cathedral Windows Small)

Clear Scraps and Echo Park Blog Hop...

I'm so excited that Clear Scraps is playing along with Echo Park this week! I loved the happy bright colors in the Simple Life Collection! 


I did a little happy dance when I realized the pocket page images fit Clear Scraps Recipe Stand perfectly! I used a mix of the pocket page images and pattern paper to cover all the chipboard. 


I used the 6" Stripes Mascil to add Embossing Paste to the Small Star Embellishments. While it was still wet I sprinkled glitter on and tapped off the extra. I layered them through out the mini book on the acetate pages. 


I loved the matching stickers in the Echo Park Simple Life Collection and used them to decorate both the pages and tabs on the acrylic dividers.

Never Forget

(2nd post for day-Dreamweavers challenge post can be found HERE)

Today I pause to remember the almost 3000 victims of the September 11, 2001 and four Americans killed in Benghazi. Never forget. 


As soon as I saw Crafters Companion new  Art- Kure US Landmark Brooklyn Bridge stamp, I knew I had to create a card in remembance of Sept 11th. I placed two diecut vellum stars in the spot where the Twin Towers once stood. 

Supplies Used:
Crafters Companion Art-Kure Us Landmark Stamps (Brooklyn Bridge)
Spectrum Noir: TB1, TB2, IG1

Snow Day...

I couldn't wait to play with the Dreamweavers Gothic Snowflake for this month's Dreamweavers Challenge. 


I mixed a bit of microglitter into Pearlescent Embossing Paste and stenciled snowflakes on white cardstock. When it was dry, I stamped Stampendous Delicate Snow Set on the cardstock. Next I inked the paper with Distress Ink. I splattered water over the Distress Ink to create watermarks. 


I sanded the front and back of Clear Scraps Alphabet acrylic and stamped the front with Delicate Snow Set in White StazOn. 


Supplies Used:
Dreamweavers (Gothic Snowflake, Pearlescent Embossing Paste)
Spectrum Noir (DG4, DG3, TB1, EB6)
Echo Park (Simple Life)
