JUNE WINNER #2 and We're Still Sparkling!


 AND


ARE TEAMING UP THE ENTIRE MONTH OF JUNE TO BRING YOU AN AMAZING CREATIVE COLLABORATION MIXING DREAMWEAVER STENCILS AND ART GLITTER. COME ALONG FOR THE RIDE...WE PROMISE IT WILL BE A SPARKLING ONE!

Visit the Art Glitter blog and the Dream It Up! blog for fabulous inspiration from both talented design teams. We are encouraging all of you to play along with the challenge of creating with Dreamweaver Stencils and Art Glitter*, preferably using the Double-Glitter Technique with a wedding theme. Just link your creation to the Mr. Linky on the Dream It Up! blog, or email pics to lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com, for an opportunity to win one of four fabulous glitter and stencil prize packages. One winner will be chosen each week. (US and Canada only, please).


Once again, we are posting a fabulous creation by Elaine Benedict, previous sales rep and teacher extraordinaire! I love how her creative mind works!



 For this card, she used the new Stylized Dahlia stencil, which she paper-pieced with Japanese Washi paper. Not satisfied with just this, she then pasted* the Translucent Embossing Paste over the surface of the design, and added transparent crystal glitter. This technique makes every detail stand out and sparkle in a gorgeous way! Layering the panels, adding a sheer ribbon, and a few dots of Liquid Pearls finishes off a truly inspiring design.

Try out this technique yourself, or any of the other ways to mix your Dreamweaver Stencils' designs and Art Glitter*, and play along. Remember, there are still three more prize packages to win this month! Ooops, nope. I forgot, one of these we are giving away in today's post. The winner for the second week of the challenge is...

Jill D.

Congrats to Jill on her beautiful wedding card, which featured the Long Stem Iris, using the Double Glitter technique:


Jill, please contact lynell@dreameaverstencils.com with your address! We hope to see more of your creations in the months to come!

Therefore, we are down to TWO more prize packages as shown above. You know you HAVE to win one for yourself! So, get busy and play along. Tell the kids they can go swimming after you've finished covering the house in glitter. Tell the dog you'll go for a walk after you've photographed your creation and linked it HERE! Tell your hubby...well, he might be the one paying for your new-found stencil and glitter obsession, so...just smile, and tell him dinner will be a bit late, and may have extra fiber in it...that sparkles. Yep. It could work.

For more inspiration from the Art Glitter design team, please visit their blog for a complete list of players throughout the month.
