Dream Team Thursday & a Challenge!!

Good morning!!!

Welcome to Thursday’s Dream Scheme Thursdays!! Today is the day that you can hop from blog to blog and get some fabulous inspiration from some AMAZINGLY talented and AWESOME women!! I had the opportunity to meet all but one of our team members at CHA and I want to tell you, we are the nicest group of ladies that you will ever want to meet! Ha!!

Today I am sharing a card that I made using one of Dreamweaver’s new stencils released at Winter CHA.

DW-Dolphin-Thank-You

I used three new stencils, Big Dots (LX7011), Pinwheel Checkerboard (LX7013) and thank you (LS1009).

I ran the Big Dots stencil though the Vaga Bond machine with Teal Aluminum, while the stencil was still in place, I sanded some of the color off of the aluminum. I removed the stencil and ran the aluminum through the embossing machine with out a stencil to flatten out the aluminum. Next, place the Pinwheel Checkerboard stencil under the same piece of aluminum and run through your embossing machine again. Again, sand off the color through the newly embossed area. With the stencil in place, add Color Solution Alcohol Inks to the desired areas.

This technique has many EASY steps. If you have any questions, please leave your email address in the comments section, with your question and I would be happy to answer!!

Now for the real fun!! Dreamweaver is offering two prizes this month for playing in their “Green” Challenge. Green can mean, whatever it means to you, recycling, color, St. Patrick’s Day. The prizes are Long Lilies (LL542)

Cherry Blossom Crest (LL490)

These stencils will come in handy for future challenges!!!

We can’t wait to see your fabulous creations. Please link your creations to Dream It Up, Dreamweaver Stencil blog.

Love that pop of orange with the teal Wendy! Am planning some orange on one of my cards now too. Go Green ( with a dash of orange )!

WOW! Love the double embossing. Can you do the same thing with other machines? I haven't got a Vagabond yet. It's on my list!! Love the result, fantabulous card!
