Dream-pendous Inspiration



Get ready to be inked, pasted, encrusted, stenciled and stamped! All of this week the Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream Team and the Stampendous Design Teams will be providing some "Dream-pendous" inspiration for you, with multiple opportunities to win some fabulous prizes from both companies. 

Each day this week, you will be directed from both the Stampendous Impressions ' blog or the Dream It Up! blog to the players du jour for your oohing and aaahing pleasure. Everyone will be playing on Saturday, the 14th with our final hop for the week. 

This is your opportunity to see how to mix and mingle your creativity...if you are a stenciler, you will be fascinated at combining stamps with your first love. If you are a stamper, you will be wowed at how stencils can add to your impressions.

Here is my little peek at mixing Stencils and Stamps.


I used the Black Eyed Susan stencil for this card.  I used a stylus to dry emboss the white panel and then with the stencil still in place I used my Pebbles Inc. Chalks to color the embossed image.
The sentiment is from the Birthday Assortment Clear Stamp set and the butterfly image is Ruffled Butterfly both by Stampendous!

Here's another look at it...




Be sure to leave comments as you tour the blogs (with your email addy!) for a chance to win* one of three combined sets of these Dreamweaver and Stampendous goodies:
