Festively Fall Dreamweaver/Ranger Collaboration


The Dream Team are so excited to have the opportunity to play along with some unique Ranger Products in the Tim Holtzline...specifically, the Distressed Embossing Powders! Our own Louise Healy demonstrated how fabulous these are with theDreamweaver Stencils when she created this card for a fun class at CHA Summer 2012:


Apparently, Tim Holtz agreed with all of us on this unique use of his product, so he very generously had Ranger (thanks, Patti!) send the team some samples to play and blog with. So...here we go!

Here's my post for today:


My post today features the Pumpkins stencil(LL 515). Using Double sided mounting paper and the double glitter technique. Instead of using glitter however I used Tim Holtz Distress Powders in the following colors: Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, Tea Dye and Weathered Wood. I sprinkled the powders using a straw that was cut on an angle and then when all the colors were where I wanted them placed I used my heat gun on the embossing powders. I then layered the card together using card stock in beautiful fall colors and decorative paper from BoBunny design. I really love the rustic look of the Distress Powders.


For the next four weeks, on our regular Thursday posts, we will be featuring the wonderful things that you can do with Tim's Distress Powders and Dreamweaver Stencils. Leave comments on each of the team blog posts for opportunities to win one prize package for each of the four weeks:


Don't forget to play along with the Dream Team's monthly challenges for more opportunities to win some great stencil designs! October's challenge is Festively Fall, and November is CAS (clean and simple) Christmas! Link your creations on the Dream It Up! blog, or email pics tolynell@dreamweaverstencils.com. Join us on Facebook as well! Lots of inspiration, and lots of fun!
