Stampendous & Dreamweaver Stencils BLOG WEEK!!!

 


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.

The Stampendous Cling Jumbo Steampunk Balloon (CRS5036) and the Dreamweaver Gears Stencil (LJ911) go together hand in hand!!

I stamped the Steampunk Balloon with Versafine Spanish Moss ink on the front card panel.  Using a Vagabond and the Gears stencil, I dry embossed the Gears into cream confetti cardstock.  I laid the stencil down onto the craft mat and applied embossing ink to the entire surface of the stencil.  I laid the embossing ink side up in the Vagabond’s platform, layered the cardstock, the Stamping Details Rubber Mat, and two acrylic plates and put it through the machine. When the cardstock came through the machine, the embossing ink that I applied then transferred to the cardstock and I was able to apply Stampendous Detail Gold Embossing powder to the debossed areas.

Dreamweaver-STMBlogWeek-(2)

I tore colored cardstock for the layers and sentiment panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampendous Time Flies Perfectly Clear Stamp Set and added an clock pendent that I bought in the jewelry making section of our local craft store.

Lovely card I like the thought of moving from air balloon to gears- it reminds me of progress in industrialization.
