We're Hopping Dreamweaver and Stampendous











Get ready to be inked, pasted, encrusted, stenciled and stamped! All of this week the Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream Team and theStampendous Design Teams will be providing some "Dream-pendous" inspiration for you, with multiple opportunities to win some fabulous prizes from both companies. Each day this week, you will be directed from both the Stampendous Impressions' blog or the Dream It Up! blog to the players du jour for your oohing and aaahing pleasure. Everyone will be playing on Saturday, the 14th with our final hop for the week. This is your opportunity to see how to mix and mingle your creativity...if you are a stenciler, you will be fascinated at combining stamps with your first love. If you are a stamper, you will be wowed at how stencils can add to your impressions. My creation today uses :

LG625 Blossom and leaves Stencil
LL332 Picasso
Regular embossing paste
Stampendous Jumbo Cottage Rose set
Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing enamel
Versamark Stamp Pad
Adirondack Inks : shell pink, watermelon, cranberry, willow, citrus and lettuce.
I used dark brown card stock for the card and then used kraft card stock to stamp the Cottage Roses randomly on to the background with Versamark ink. I then used the aged ivory embossing enamel, to heat this embossing enamel use your heat gun underneath the card rather then heat down onto the powder so that it doesn't blow off.  When that was done I distressed the edges using Ranger Frayed Burlap Distress ink. I layered this background onto the dark brown card stock and set it aside. Next I took a lt. pink card stock and pasted a portion of the blossom and leaves stencil onto the paper with regular embossing paste. I let this dry then repositioned the stencil over the pasted image and added color using a small 1/4 inch stencil brush and the picasso.  The picasso is used to keep color from going where it doesn't belong. I layered this onto dark brown card stock and after adding a sheer brown ribbon from creative expressions I layered this to the kraft background piece. This hop with Stampendous has been so much fun and has  jump started my creative juices. I can't wait to use some  of the techniques I've seen in my classes. I hop you get some great ideas from this great week of hopping with Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous.Be sure to leave comments as you tour the blogs (with your email addy!) for a chance to win* one of three combined sets of theseDreamweaver and Stampendous goodies:
