Welcome to the annual Dreamweaver and Woodware Christmas in August extravaganza week! Monday through Saturday we will be knocking your Christmas stockings off with fun and inspirational ideas for the upcoming holidays. All that you need to do is hop back and forth across the "pond" on each day, oohing and aaahhhing as you go, and leaving us plenty of holiday love. In return, you'll be entered to randomly win one prize package for a UK commenter, and a second prize package for a US commenter, featuring products distributed in the UK by Woodware...including Dreamweaver and Stampendous!
Prize includes four stencils, one die, and two stamps, selection may vary.
There's a total of 3 stencils used in this card project. The background is the cathedral stencil (LJ909) that was sprayed first with Memory Mist Margarita and carefully laid onto a diecut plate. The cardstock panel was laid on top of the misted stencil, followed by the rubber cushion and two diecut plates. Once the panel was dry, 1/8" Scor-Tape was aligned along the outer edge and German glass glitter (Jenni Bowlin) was sprinkled over the tape.
Next, the holly stencil (LL3005) was laid over a white cardstock panel and colored with Spendor inks. To color the small tricky areas, I used the Picasso tool (LL332), an absolute essential to own! To create the dimensional glossy layer, the stencil was again laid over the image and using a Palette Sticky Glue Pad and jumbo dauber, the image was thoroughly covered with glue. The stencil was removed and Utee was sprinkled over the glued area and heat set. Two additional layers of Utee were repeated to create the glass effect I was going for.
I used Silver Ranger Distress Stain to color in the areas behind the holly. What a difference adding color made to the embossed image!
Joyeux Noel was pasted with glossy metallic silver and while still wet, sprinkled with silver glitter and allowed to dry. Seam binding ribbon (Hug Snug) and misc. metallic ribbon were added for embellishment to the card.
So off you go to the next designer's blog. I'd love you to leave me a comment before you hop away!
