Frosty Fun

We've had a lot of fun with this month's Frosty Fun challenge and I hope you've been able to play along.  There's still a few days left, so if you've got some time this week, join us!

This week's project from the archives is a salute to the annual New Years Eve fireworks display in San Francisco.  It's a crowded event – necessary in order to stay warm – and a lot of cool and frosty fun.  This card was super easy to make.  Begin by paste embossing the Fireworks (LJ886) stencil with Translucent embossing paste and a paste spreader (LM2010).   Wash the stencil and set aside to dry.  Sprinkle gold and silver glitter over the fireworks while the paste it still wet and set that aside to dry.  Stamp an image or sentiment of your choice and mat it with coordinating paper.  When the paste has dried, add ribbon or other embellishment and stamped image and you're done.  This makes a great invitation for a New Years Eve party or, with a different stamped image, a Happy New Year card if you didn't get all the Christmas cards out in time!

There's still a few days left, so I hope you'll find some time to play along.  You can get all the details about this month's challenge and the great prize package here.  And for more ideas and inspiration, check out the rest of the Dream Team blogs beginning with Dreamweaver Stencil's blog, Dream it Up!
