Stampendous/Dreamweaver Summer




It's fun in the sun time again with another collaboration between Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils! We'll be playing together all of this week, with a fabulous hop on Friday, August 2nd, featuring a slew of amazing talent from both teams, and of course...prizes!!!



Two prize packages will be given away for the comments left on posts Monday-Thursday, July 29th - August 1st, and one prize will be given away for comments left on the hop day, Friday, August 2nd. Winners will be selected randomly and announced Thursday, August 8th. (Note: USA addresses only, please, due to shipping costs.) Here's what you could win:


Stampendous Surfer and Sandcastle Kiddos • Dreamweaver Hot Air Balloon, Ice Cream Cones, Summer, Mosaic Swirls, Bird Words, and Sandcastle stencils
 
I have to admit that I have been a little intimidated by these stencils in the past but not any more!!!

The Lovely Pam Hornschu, Design Team Coordinator/Social Media and Marketing Director and Sample Artist for Dreamweaver Stencils recently moved into my neighborhood so a couple of weeks ago I conned her in to having me over to play.

She showed me all kinds of great techniques and now I am hooked on stencils!

Here is a card that I made using Mermaid from Stampendous and four different stencils.


The two shells are LM106 Scallop and LR 12 Sand Dollar.  I used Gold Paste on the Sand Dollar and Pearlescent Paste on the Scallop shell. When they were dry I brushed on Gold Dust Metalic F/X.
I used pearlescent paste on the teal panel with Cathedral Windows large.
The bottom brown panel was stenciled with seashells.


I used the Double Glitter Technique for the LM 294 Summer Stencil.
I used Stampendous Crystal Micro Glitter and Teal micro glitter.


I just love how this card turned out!

Hope you like it too!
You can see more amazing creations all week long and we will end the week with a big 'ole blog hop with lots of fun prizes so be sure and check back!

More great ideas can be found on these blogs!

Dream It Up!
