Crafters Companion Stencils...

Have you heard the news? Crafters Companion now has Sheena Douglass stencils! For today's card, I paired the new Beach Huts stencils with her Sea Shells stamp set. 

To create the background, I inked the cardstock with Distress Inks and then spread the embossing paste over the stencil. I love that a bit of the color shows through the Gloss Paste and gives a fun effect! 

Supplies Used:

Sheena Douglass A Little Big Scenic (Sea Shells)
Sheena Douglass Decorative Stencil (Beach Huts)
Ranger Distress Ink (Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves)
Spectrum Noir (HB2, HB3, LV1)
Glossy Accents
Stampendous Chunky Glass Glitter

Stampendous and Dreamweavers....

The Stampendous Design Team is excited to be joining  Dreamweaver and Coredinations to bring you a week of great inspiration!

These cuties are from the House Mouse's Star Spangled Mice stamp set. I trimmed the heads so they fit behind the Dreamweavers Nested Stocking Die.The stocking was cut from Coredinations red cardstock and sanded to give a distress look. I created the card base from Coredinations kraft cardstock. Dreamweavers Large Flourish stencil was used to dry emboss the design. I gave the design a quick sand when it was done to make it "pop".
