Dream Scheme Thursday-Free Challenge week

I'm starting to think about the upcoming holidays and the cool weather. I have this really fun blue polka dot glitter paper that I wanted to use so I chose the recently released ice skates (LL3017) this week challenge. I embossed the image by using my big shot. Then I rouged in Momento London Fog using a large 1/2 inch stencil brush(NHB 1/2) to add color to the skates. Then using a smaller stencil brush I stippled on glue (Palette Stamp and Stick Glue Pad)
and then sprinkled with Stampendous Crystal glitter. I then removed the stencil and rouged the corners with the 1/2 inch stencil brush and London Fog. I mounted this onto navy blue paper and then added a crocheted snowflake with a metallic blue brad.
This simple card has lots of glitz and will probably be the card I send out this Christmas.
I hope you all have had a creative week and join us again next week. Don't forget to check out the blogs of the rest of the team and see what they have been up to this week.

Dreamweaver Colorway Challenge / Pink and Black

Pink and black are great colors to work with but I've been thinking Fall the last couple of weeks, so when I sat down to work on this challenge it took me a minute or two to come up with what I wanted to do. It all of a sudden came to me that this is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I have a kitchen full of cake pops that are being sold for a donation to Breast cancer research. Lynell released a Hope character during the summer CHA and I thought that would make a great card. So for all my friends who have fought this awful disease and survived this card is for you. I started with a black card I then layered the card with pink polka dot paper from DCWV and then I added a bow of black tulle. I know you would think I would assemble the card while my paste was drying but I was kind of in one of those backward moods. I then took Regular Embossing Paste and added Pink Blaze Metallic F/X to get a pretty color pink. I pasted the Hope Symbol (LL3018) with this mixture and let it dry. Then when it was dry I repositioned the stencil and daubed some glue over the top of the image (Palette Stamp and Stick Gluepad ) and brushed on the Pink Blaze Metallic F/X to add some shimmer. I used mounting tape to pop this layer and then added one of the cute hatpins that Dreamweaver sells for a little extra bling. This was a pretty simple card but fun to make.
Don't forget to stop by the other Dream Team Blogs and see what they came up with this week, the are a very creative group of ladies. HOPE to see you here next week and hope everyone has a very creative week.

Dream Scheme Thursday-Free Challenge week

Hi all ... I sorry this didn't get on my blog as early as it should. I'm here is Tucson Arizona for the week visiting with my mom and my sister. this card is one that I really enjoyed doing, t was one of the stencils I was given for a challenge. This stencil is one of the new backgrounds that was launched at CHA summer it's the triangle weave. I started by doing the bottom layer, I rouged in adirondack inks by ranger using lemonade, butterscotch, lettuce and eggplant. Once I had the color in I left the stencil in place and pasted with translucent paste, this paste gives the color a kind of tile look and really pops the color. Next I took another piece of paper and rouged in the same colors on this one however I did not do the paste, I took the celebrate stencil and pasted with black glossy paste. I then let everything dry while I picked out paper in shades that I liked for layering. Once the paste was dry I layered the card together and added a orange bow and pearl hat pin.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian neighbors. Don't forget to check out the blogs of the rest of the Dream Team and leave us all a comment. See you all next week.
