Dreamweaver Stencil Dream Team Thursday!

Good morning!!

Today kicks off  “free theme” week with  Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Team!!

Free theme is when we can post a Dreamweaver Stencil creation that we have made not following any particular theme. 

My creation was made for sample boards for CHA Summer.

I used the July release, Holiday Greetings (LJ917)


First I ran Holiday Greetings through the Vagabond Machine to dry emboss the background.  The stacking formula I used was platform, stencil, card stock (spritzed on the back with rubbing alcohol), rubber embossing mat, and both clear acrylic plates on top of that.  While the stencil was still attached to the paper, I stenciled in different colors of pigment ink.  I then removed the stencil, spritzed the colored image with Iridescent Memory Mist.  On a separate piece of cardstock, I paste embossed “Holiday  Greetings” with Glossy Red embossing paste.  Once that was dry, I matted the cardstock and adhered it to the background image.  I added some red rhinestones for some flair.

Here is a supply list:

Cardstock: Coconut Swirl, Killarny (Bazzill); Iridescent White (stash)

Stencil: Holiday Greetings LJ917 (Dreamweaver Stencils)

Ink: Brilliance Ink (Tsukineko)

Extras: Iridescent Memory Mist (Stewart Superior), rhinestones (craft supply), red embossing paste (Dreamweaver Stencils)

Thanks so much for stopping by today and seeing my post.  Please take the time to look at all the Dream Team’s creations.  You can see the blog roll to the right of this post.

Have a great day!!!

The softness of the holly really makes the crisp red greeting stand out. And the berries are the perfect bling. Love it!
