Dreamweaver Stencils CAS November Challenge

Welcome to Dreamweaver Stencils Clean and Simple (CAS) November Challenge.  

Today I am sharing a fast and easy technique that can make Christmas card making a breeeze.  

Ink Transfer Technique...


To get started, choose your stencil and your favorite color of Memory Mist.  Today I am using Blue Martini by Memory Mist, glossy card stock  and Dreamweaver Stencil Star Dream Christmas Tree, LG746.  I have a layered paper towel under the stencil to catch over spray and spray through the image on the stencil.



I have sprayed a nice amount of Memory Mist onto the back of the stencil.  You will  know ithe back of the stencil because Lynell Harlow's name isn't on this side.  If you can see words or numbers, you are looking at the front of the stencil.

Once  there is nice coverage on the stencil, carefully transfer it with your fingers to a clean layer of paper towels.

Lay the glossy cardstock, glossy side onto the ink.  I press my fingers onto the paper, without pushing the paper around to much.

Carefully lift the glossy cardstock off of your stencil and this is your result.

Set the inked, glossy cardstock aside for 15 minutes to dry, or you can apply heat with a heat tool, just not too close.  Your glossy cardstock will turn brown from the heat.


Using my Ink Transferred Technique image I made a very simple, easy to reproduce card.
I hope you can incorporate this technique and Dreamweaver Stencils  into your Holiday card making.

Please share with us your Christmas CAS creations at Dream It Up, the Dreamweaver Stencils blog.
