New Challenge Starts Today

Congratulations to the winners of the April Challenge
Rose S.
Lynn B.
Your creations were lovely and we hope you'll play along with us again this month.

It's the very merry month of May now, and the Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream Team are playing with a new challenge, and we're hoping that YOU will play along! All of this month, we'll be creating for graduations and/or using black and white with a pop of color. May and June are typically the time for grads in the US, but to keep things even more interesting, you can choose to play with our colorway challenge instead.   Here's how I've interpreted the challenge:

The LX 7002 Plaid and the LL3017 Cameo stencils were embossed with Glossy Black paste and set aside to dry while I washed the stencils, palette knife (DPK) and paste spreader (LM2010).  When dry, the background  was trimmed to size and the cameo cut out, and adhered to a mat and card base.  The decorative pin and ribbon were added for the pop of color.  And there you have it!

To play along with us, you do not have to have a complicated creation, so pull out your supplies and have some fun!  Link your creation to the Dream It Up! blog, or email pics of your creation to  We love to post your submissions on the blog as well as the Facebook page.   Even more, we love to provide you the opportunity to win one of two sets of two stencils by playing along. You have all of May to link as many creations as you'd like! must be from the US or Canada.

Check out the rest of the Dream Team blogs for more ideas and inspiration.
See you next week,
