Pinterest Inspired/Thursday's Challenge

My Pinterest Inspiration Click HERE
This month we are challenging you to join our Pinterest inspired challenge. Just find a link on Pinterest and create from this inspiration. Also this month we have a guest designer, Jennifer Dove. Jennifer hails from the state of Arizona and also travels to do Copic workshops...be sure to view her weekly creations this month.

Today I am sharing a card from Elaine Benedict. The month of May many of the retailers in Illinois and design team members came together for the first Dreamweaver Stencils Teacher's Certification workshop. And Elaine Benedict, my former Illinois/Wisconsin rep traveled all the way from North Carolina to assist me at the workshop. And she shared with me this wonderful card that she had created for her daughter's upcoming wedding shower. Her wedding color will be shades of purples. 


We spent some time comparing pictures etc., because my daughter is getting married soon as well. Making invitations and wedding cards can really be rewarding. Over the past few years I have had the joy of doing this for several friends and clients. 

These cards are a lacy edged paper with four flaps. It was originally die cut to match up with a lace doily stencil (LJ836). Elaine made this using the simplest of stencil techniques. Placing the bride stencil (LJ924) with removable tape (RMT) and then using a large stencil brush (NHB3/4") stenciled with pigment inks. The flowers were achieved with just a bit of purple STickles glue and then May Arts ribbon was used as a closure.


I mentioned our first Dreamweaver Stencils Certification was in the Chicago area. If anyone is interested... our next certification will be in Las Vegas on July 20 and 21 at the Suncoast Casino. Two days of intense stenciling with like-minded stenciling fanatics. I will be doing the teaching and we still have room for more. The Suncoast is not near the strip, but it is a beautiful resort casino. Not far from California and there is shuttle service to and from the airport. If you are interested I will happily email you an application. Let me know: lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com

Hope you'll take time to see the other Pinterest inspired creations. Just follow the list below and leave the team some love. Also would love to have you join us, so get inspired and leave your creation on the linky tool below.
