Stampendous/Dreamweaver Collaboration




It's fun in the sun time again with another collaboration between Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils!  We'll be playing together all of this week, with a fabulous hop on Friday, August 2nd, featuring a slew of amazing talent from both teams and of course...prizes!!

Two prize packages will be given away for the comments left on posts Monday - Thursday, July 29th - August 1st and one prize will be given away for comments left on the hop day, Friday, August 2nd.  Winners will be selected randomly and announced Thursday, August 8th. (Note: USA addresses only, please, due to shipping costs.)  Here's what you could win:

Stampendous Surfer and Sandcastle Kiddos, Dreamweaver Hot Air Balloon, Ice Cream Cones, Summer, Mosaic Swirls, Bird Words and Sandcastle Stencils!

Here's what I created:


Today, I am using the Encrusted Jewel Bronze set from Stampendous in both cards.  The first card, I stamped the VersaMark pad directly onto the cream card stock.  Then I sprinkled the different powders onto the inked surface.  Heat the background to melt the powders, then stamp the swirls onto the background and sprinkle with Vintage Mahogany Embossing Tinsel and heat again.  The Buck was pasted with the Black Matte Embossing Paste.  Before I removed the stencil, I sprinkle the body with the Embossing Tinsel.  I then removed the stencil and allowed the paste to dry for about 10 - 15 minutes.  Then use the heat tool to emboss the powder.  Mat the Buck onto brown card stock.  Use the X-acto knife to cut a slit above the swirl and tuck the deer into the opening.  For the second card, I stamped the Nautical Rope frame and embossed it with the Vintage Mahogany Embossing Tinsel.  I cut out the opening with an X-acto knife.  Next, I used the Dreamweaver sand castle with the Black Matte Embossing Paste.  This time I removed the stencil, then sprinkled the wet paste with the Golden Sand Embossing Powder.  I allowed the paste to dry for about 10 minutes, then heated it with the Heat tool.  The paste will puff slightly.  Then I adhered the frame over the sand castle and finished the card.

Now hop on over to the next in line.  Don't forget to leave some love for the chance to win and just 'cuz it's nice!
