October's Festively Fall Challenge

It's October and fall is in the air, pop-up pumpkin patches are appearing everywhere, and fall-themed festivals are taking place on most weekends.

Dreamweaver has lots of stencils and materials that can be used for a Fall theme, but remember you can post any Festively Fall creation and win best interpretation of the challenge – it can be any product or image.  Again we are letting our winner choose any stencil they desire.   So one winner will be chosen for best usage of Dreamweaver products and one winner will be chosen for best interpretation of the challenge.  Just link up with mr linky on the Dreamweaver blog or if you don't have a way of linking, email your design to Lynell  (  and she will link it for you.

Speaking of pumpkins, here are two more cards from the archives made with the Long Pumpkins (LL514) stencil (can you tell how much I like it???).

 For this card I paste embossed the entire stencil with regular embossing paste (DEP) and, when dry,  colored the image with pigment inks.

 For the spider web card, the three pumpkins on the right hand side of the stencil were dry-embossed and then colored with pigment inks.  For the background, I paste-embossed the Spider Web (LJ816) stencil with glossy black paste (DGKP).

For more ideas and inspiration, check out the rest of the Dream Team blogs      
Happy Crafting,


  1. Wonderful cards from your archives...I don't remember the cobweb one. Love how you made it into a tryptic! I must try more of that!

  2. Love these cards Liz, Hope you are doing well. I hope it cools down here a little I want to hop over to the Pumpkin Festival next week for a few hours. A respite from PACKING for the move.

  3. Great cards Liz! Love the web one especially!

  4. Great cards, Liz! Especially loving the triptych background on that second card. Great contrast!
