Answering the Challenge!

Just a quick note here and then be sure to read my December 1st post: Wendy has given us a sketch challenge and it looked so pretty and simple I couldn't resist playing along. You can play along too! There is a link at the bottom of December 1st post so you can! Create your card, fill out the information in the widget box and have a chance to win a stencil!

This first sketch challenge was fun to do and really quite simple. Don't forget to go to all the designer's blogs and see their creations. They are all really quite amazing! Just look at the Dream Team sidebar at the right and start with our team leader Deborah and march along the Dreamweaver blogging trail.

This simple candy cane (LL555) card was made with the double glitter technique. I know I have told you how to do it before here on the blog, but if you are interested in written instructions, just send me an email with where you want me email it and I will make it so! lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com

P.S. The way I hid the sharp tip of the embellishment pin on the Season's Greetings (LS91) is to use foam mounting tape on my other pieces. Then I can slide the pin's tip down through the foam pieces to keep people safe.

Love the elegance of this card. Gorgeous colors. When I first looked at it, I thought you had glued an actual stencil on for the sentiment. The dark paste on there almost looks cut out in the photo. Pretty cool. Love that you offered to send the info on the technique!

Beautiful card! I too thought you had glued the actual stencil to the card. (A gift for a friend who loves Dreamweaver stencils? Ha!) Thanks for the tip about making the pin point safe. Great idea.

OK. That makes three of us thinking that the stencil was glued to the card. But Marijane has a good idea - make it a gift! Love the glitter!

Just wonderful, I love the candy cane with glitter!! I too thought it was a stencil attached to the card! Quite the optical illusion.

This is beautiful. I know how it shines IRL. Thanks for the tip about the hat pin.
