Dream Scheme Thursday

Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day have come and gone and next in the card-sending line-up is Easter.  It's never too soon to get a head start on the Easter Bunny, so here is one of the cards I've made to send to family and friends I won't be seeing on Easter Sunday.

I began by embossing the Easter Egg (LG685) and Happy Easter (LM234) stencils with white matte embossing paste.  When dry, I repositioned the clean stencil on the Easter egg and applied Palette Stamp & Stick Gluepad over the embossed areas with a large dauber, followed by Metallic F/X in Glacier, Gold Dust, Kiwi, Moonstore and Pink Blush applied with stencil brushes.   Note:  the instructions on the back of the Palette gluepad tell you to heat the image lightly until tacky.  I've not done this and it has not been a problem for me.  You might want to make a test sample before continuing.

That's all there is to it.  Be sure to visit the other Dream Team blogs for more creative inspiration.  Then get to work and show us your project on the DREAM it UP! blog. 

Happy Crafting,
