Birthday Dreams


This week we have a different sort of collaboration for you!
Stampendous is very excited to be able to offer their products in many countries around the world. They’re able to do this thanks to their terrific distributors in those countries who help retail stores to stock their products. In the UK Stampendous has a very long and valued partnership with Woodware Craft Collection. These wonderful folks stock almost all the Stampendous products, and they even stock several classic items that have retired from the store here in the US. They also stock almost all of the new Dreamweaver Stencils line, so we thought it would be another great event to celebrate the addition of Dreamweaver to the Stampendous family.
This week we’re going to celebrate with the awesome Woodware Design Team and the Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Team all of the the great Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils products that Woodware makes available to the UK market. This is good news for our crafty friends in the UK because we’ll be offering prizes and our UK friends are eligible to win!! We’ll be offering three prizes in the UK and three in the US.
Our theme...Making Texture. We hope you’ll enjoy the wonderful inspiration that three talented teams will bring you this week! 

I made a fun birthday card for today's project.

This adorable Gruffies® image, Cake Dreamer is available from Woodware and Stampendous.



I colored the image with Copic Markers.
To create the purple background I used the Dreamweaver I Beam stencil and embossing paste.

I started by taping the stencil to a panel of white cardstock with removable tape.



I spread a small amount of white embossing paste on my craft mat.

I added some purple acrylic paint to the embossing paste and mixed it with my palette knife.


Then I spread the paste across the stencil with my Paste Spreader.


When it dried I used it for the background of the card.

Do you see the yellow sparkly strip?
That was from a left over strip from my Thursday project and if you stop by then, I'll show you how I created it using Dreamweaver Graduated Dot stencil.



The sentiment is from the Beary Mice Perfectly Clear stamp set.
Here are the designer’s sharing the projects Each prize package will consist of Nathalie Kalbach’s terrific Grunge Mixed Media Cling Rubber Stamp Sets and the beautiful Zen Butterfly Dreamweaver Stencil! Both products are ideal for adding texture and backgrounds to your projects!
Deadline to comment is Sunday, March 29th, Pacific Time. Winners will be picked using random.org and announced Tuesday, March 31st, in the afternoon.


Be sure to visit all the blog links listed and leave your comments! Each comment will count as an entry towards one of the terrific prize packages.
