Dreamweaver Stencils Summertime Challenge!!!

Good morning and welcome to Dreamweaver Stencils Thursday!!

Today I am sharing a project that I made for Dreamweaver Stencils May Release.

Here are the supplies that you will need:

A few instructional steps:

Lay your craft mat on your work surface and place a few drops of different Color Solutions Alcohol Inks  on the craft mat.  Place your glossy card stock, glossy side down into the ink.    Swirl the glossy paper into the inks, you can pick up the card stock and place it is a different direction if you choose.  The idea is to get coverage on all over the paper.  Color Solutions Inks are Alcohol so they will dry very quickly.

Once your Color Solutions Alcohol Inks are dry, place the stencil of your choice over the inks and paste emboss with Glossy Black Embossing Enamel.  While the paste is still wet, sprinkle Metallic FX over the wet paste and set aside to dry.  Once dry, the excess will shake off easily with a Glitter Magnet.

Using your die cut machine, dry emboss the card base.  The sandwich formula I use for Dry Embossing  Stencils in my Vagabond and Big Shot is: platform, stencil, paper, rubber embossing mat, and two acrylic plates.   The same sandwich also applies to the Cuttlebug.  

Stencils: Flourish LJ896, Delicate Star Flower LL3027 (Dreamweaver Stencils)
Paper: Glossy  & White (Bazzill Basics Paper)
Inks. Thistle & Green Gourd Color Solutions Alcohol Inks (Dreamweaver Stencils)
Metallic FX: Ivy Green (Dreamweaver Stencils)
Embossing Paste: Glossy Black Embossing Paste (Dreamweaver Stencils)

I hope you have a chance to try this technique, with our Summertime theme challenge!!  Upload your summertime card to Dream It Up blog for a fun prize!!

Here is a sneak peek of one of the stencils that we are presenting to the retailers at CHA Summer (our bi-yearly trade show). And you could win this stencil if you join our challenge. We are giving away two. A #1 prize to the person who best interprets the challenge and #2 winner for best use of Dreamweaver products. So see? don't even have to use Dreamweaver products (of course we are thrilled when you do.)
