Dreamweaver/Woodware UK Saturday Hop


Welcome back to the annual Dreamweaver and Woodware Christmas in August Extravaganza week! Today we will be again 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" today, continuing to ooh and aaahh as you go...leaving us plenty of holiday love.  In return, you will 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 Woodwar...including Dreamweavers and Stampendous!

Prizes include four stencils, one die and two stamps.  (Selections my vary)

Here's what I've created for you today:
Here's a little house mouse for you from Stampendous.  I colored him with Copic Markers, then cut out around the top of it.  On the background, I used the Holiday Flourish stencil from Dreamweavers.  I dry embossed it through my Cuttlebug machine and while leaving the stencil over the paper, sponged with the Pine Needles Distress Ink.  I then added some of the Copper Pearls to the berries.  I let them dry.  Then I popped up the candy can totting mouse up to give it some dimension, added some Crystal Art Institute glitter on the snow and some white Fun Flock on the fluffy, furry borders of his coat.  I embossed the Season's Greetings with the Black Matte Paste and cut it into a tag.  Then mat it with red paper and pop it up onto the card.  I hope you enjoyed this week, seeing all the fun Christmas creations.  But you aren't done yet, there are still a few more to see!!!
