Dreamweaver Stencils and Ranger!!! Festively Distressed



Still feeling festive? We hope so! Dreamweaver and Ranger still have two weeks left of our Festively Distressed collaboration, and we are full of distressing ideas...Tim Holtz' Distress Powder ideas, that is. Mixed with our fabulous line of stencil designs and exciting products, your creativity will know no bounds! If you missed the first two weeks, start HERE and HERE!

For our postings this week and next, we are offering you the opportunity to win one of two prize packages, perfectly coordinated for your holiday crafting. Simply leave a comment on each of our Dream Team's posts, and YOU could be one of two randomly selected winners!


The Dream Team have been challenged for the month of November to create something CAS (clean and simple) for the holidays. The extra challenge is mixing the Distress Powders in for the collaboration with Ranger. Think that it's possible? Well...let's see...

Here's what I came up with:


I dry embossed the Holiday Flourish  stencil (LG731) with the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.  I moved both Tab 1 & 2 on the multipurpose platform and layered as follows: stencil, paper (with a light spritz of rubbing alcohol on the back), Stamping Detail Rubber Mat and two Big Shot acrylic plates and ran the concoction through the machine.

With the stencil still in place, I applied Versamark Watermark Ink to the embossed and exposed area of my card stock.  I removed the stencil and started applying Distress Embossing powders where I saw fit.  I powders I used were Peeled Paint, Aged Mahogany and Milled Lavender.  Once powders were applied, I melted them with a heat tool.

I added a sentiment from an older Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous set called Winter Sketchbook CMS094.

So tell me what you think in your comment below before heading over to the rest of the Dream Team posts:


The Ranger blog is offering another amazing prize opportunity, just for playing along with the Ranger/Tim Holtz Distress Powders and Dreamweaver Stencils and linking your creation on the Ranger blog. You can find more details HERE.

We hope that you have been inspired by our creations, and will continue to follow the Dream Team through the Dream It Up! blog as well as to like us on our Facebook page. We really encourage you to play along with our monthly challenges for more prize opportunities and creative fun!

Did you put the brown ink on before or after the powders? Beautiful card! Looks like an antique card that you would buy for several dollars at a vintage store!
