Some days are better than others in the crafting world, and this week was heavenly. First of all, it was a color challenge week and the colors were pink and black – two of my favorites. And since I'm having a lot of fun with the background stencils right now, I couldn't pick just one, so you get the benefit of two cards.
For all cards, I used Glossy Black Embossing Paste (DGKP). For the card on the left, I pasted the Houndstooth (LJ913) and the large Hope (LL3018) stencils with glossy black embossing paste. To give the Hope image a softer touch, I replaced the clean stencil over the pasted image, applied glue from the Palette Stamp & Stick Gluepad (GSP) with a large dauber, and lightly dusted Metallic F/X Pink Blaze and Pixie Blush over the pasted image with a stencil brush. You can see some of the detail here, though the pinks are harder to see.
LJ907) and Thanks (LS106) stencils with Glossy Black Embossing Paste. When the paste was dry, I trimmed the images, added ribbon, matted them on card stock and adhered them to a card base. Couldn't be easier.
Why not play along with us this week? First, stop by the Dreamweaver blog, DREAM it UP! and then check out the great projects the other design team members have made for you. Then, get out your stencils and whip up a card or two and post it on the Dreamweaver blog using the Mr. Linky tool. We'd love to see what you're working on.
And don't forget to leave us a note. We love reading your comments.
