May Challenge Week 3

This month's Black and White with a Pop of Color and/or Graduation challenge is so much fun to work with and we get to show you some of the newly released stencils that will soon be appearing at your local scrapbook store or at Stencil with Style.  Check them out!

Today's project showcases the new Daisy Background (LX 7014) stencil and an older release, Happy Birthday (LM239).

Begin by paste embossing the Daisy Background and Happy Birthday stencils with Glossy White Embossing Paste (DGWP) on black card stock.   Set the card aside to dry while you carefully wash the stencils.  When dry, trim to size and adhere the the Happy Birthday to the Daisy Background.  You'll want to you a strong, double-sided sticky tape for this to be sure the sentiment adheres to the pasted surface without lifting up on the edges.  Add ribbon.  Adhere to the yellow mat and adhere that to your card front (can you tell I like layers?).   To add an extra bit of "pop," I highlighted the dots in the sentiment with an a Copic marker.  

Don't forget to check the Dream Team blogs for more ideas and inspiration.  You can find them here, beginning with the Dreamweaver Stencils' blog, Dream it Up!    When you've finished your project, link it to the Dream it Up! blog using Mr. Linky so we can all see your work.  And you just might win one of this month's prizes.


Happy Crafting,
Liz

  3. What a pretty card. That bit of yellow is perfect. i didn't notice the dots in the sentiment until you added the yellow on them also. I can't wait to borrow this idea!! (Of course, I'm greatly inspired because I'm sitting in a hotel room and can't touch my stuff!!!!)

  7. Liz this is really an awesome card. I haven't used this stencil yet, but now I definately need to do something with it. Love the colors you chose. I love the black and yellow combo, reminds of the big fat bumblebees in my boss"s garden that I was taking care of the last two weeks.

  8. OOH, Liz! I love the way that you used those stencils. The black, white and yellow theme is perfect. I can tell that you really thought it out before you did it, because it fell together so beautifully! This is really pretty.
