ARE TEAMING UP THE ENTIRE MONTH OF JUNE TO BRING YOU AN AMAZING CREATIVE COLLABORATION MIXING DREAMWEAVER STENCILS AND ART GLITTER. COME ALONG FOR THE RIDE...WE PROMISE IT WILL BE A SPARKLING ONE!
For my card today I used the following stencils Celebrate (LS 90) and
Paisley Background (LX 7009), I also used Double Sided mounting Paper and
Handmade Hawaiian Coconut Soap. All of these items can be ordered from Dreamweaver
Stencils by your local retailer.
The glitter I used is from Art Institute Glitter. The colors I used are True Red, Canadian Blue and Angel dust.
I have an order for 4th of July cards and decided that this one totally fits the theme of Double Glitter.
I started with red card (4 1/2 x 6 1/4), I then cut a piece of white card stock 4 1/4 x 6 and di the same with a piece of double sided mounting paper. Each side of the mounting paper has a protective coating. Remove the protective coating from one side and adhere it to the card stock, when that is done soap the back of the stencil ( this allows the stencil to come off the sticky surface easier) and then using a large stencil brush remove any crumbs of soap that may be in the area to be glittered. now remove the other protective coating and pace the stencil on the sticky surface, I use the protective coated paper to burnish the stencil down so that no glitter gets underneath the stencil. I then poured the True Red over the paisleys and using my finger pressed the glitter into the stencil. I brushed the excess glitter of the stencil and then turn it over onto a hard surface stencil side down and pulled the paper away from the stencil, this keeps the stencil from getting bent.The background was then done by pouring Angel Dust Glitter over the remaining sticky surface. I basically did the exact same thing with the Celebrate only I cut the mounting paper and card stock a 1/4 of an inch larger then the stencil and mounted the stencil so it had a border. I used the Canadian Blue for the Celebrate.
I really love the sparkle of the glitter and after all what better holiday to have sparkle then the
4th of July.
