Dreamweaver and Woodware Day Six:

All of this week, the Dream Team and the Woodware UK teams have been celebrating the release of the new holiday designs from Dreamweaver Stencils. Of course, no celebration is complete without prizes...and there are some fabulous ones for those commenting on both sides of the "pond". 

Each team will be providing the opportunity to win four prize packages of stencil designs, perfect for the holidays. Just leave your comments each day on each players' post as well as the Dream It Up! and Woodware UK blogs, and the Dreamweaver and Woodware Facebook pages. Two random commentors  will be chosen from the batch of weekday posts, one each from the DW and WW Facebook pages, and from the big hop on Saturday...from each side of the pond!* That's a total of eight prize packages up for grabs! Here's what you could win:

Here's our final creation for this week:

Don't you just love these mittens (LJ923) created by Louise Healy? She dry embossed them first with an embossing machine and while the stencil was still in position she added a touch of red pigment ink to the mittens by stenciling them with a large stencil brush (NHB1/2") and the tie was stenciled an even darker red. Next the new Christmas Borders stencil (LJ922) was layered on top of the mitten stencil and paste embossed with the original Dreamweaver Embossing Paste (DEP... which has a maroon label). Because the mittens stencil is still in place to act as a shield, it is important to hold both of these stencils flat against the surface while paste-embossing with the LM2010 paste spreader. This fun border gives these mittens the wonderful look of a soft Scandinavian wool sweater.  After repositioning the clean border stencil onto the now dry image she daubed the design with Stamp and Stick Glue Pad (GSP) and then stenciled the moist image with several soft colors of the Metallic F/X line using a small 1/4" stencil brush (GHB). The sentiment was paste-embossed with the fun Merry Winter stencil (LM252) and the Dreamweaver Glossy Red Embossing Paste (DGRP). Once the stencil was taken off and while the sentiment was still wet it was sprinkled with white flocking along the upper edge. For a final finishing touch the outer edges of the card were stenciled with a hint of the red pigment ink and a 3/4" stencil brush (NHB3/4"). Love this card Louise! Thanks!

Don't forget to leave some holiday cheer as you move on to all the players for today:

How clever to put white flocking on the toop of the letters.

I love the mittens, they do look like a soft scandinavian sweater! Since they are dry embossed and then pasted, I'm willing to bet the card has great depth as well. I also love how she added the white flocking to the tops of the letters to give them the snowcapped look. Great card!

What's not to love about this card? Lots of steps but definitely worth it.
