Summertime, Sparklers, and S'more with Dreamweaver and Stampendous, Day Two!


It's fun in the sun time again with another collaboration between Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils! We'll be playing together all of this week, with a fabulous hop on Friday, August 2nd, featuring a slew of amazing talent from both teams, and of course...prizes!!!

Two prize packages will be given away for the comments left on posts Monday-Thursday, July 29th - August 1st, and one prize will be given away for comments left on the hop day, Friday, August 2nd. Winners will be selected randomly and announced Thursday, August 8th. (Note: USA addresses only, please, due to shipping costs.) Here's what you could win:

Stampendous Surfer and Sandcastle Kiddos • Dreamweaver Hot Air Balloon, Ice Cream Cones, Summer, Mosaic Swirls, Bird Words, and Sandcastle stencils




Here's what I created:

This card is actually a collaboration with Pam Hornschu who is the fearless leader of our Dream Team. Pam worked "in house" for Stampendous for six years and knows all the ins and outs of all the wonderful things they sell. While I enjoy getting involved in the design process of a hop like this, I just don't have time to do it all...so she encouraged me to use a couple of finished pieces that she had stamped and colored with Copic markers and the two pears you see here titled "pear blossom" (459005) is one of the things she shared with me. (Thank you Pam for making my life easier.) I placed our pear stencil (LL563) on top of her colored pair of pears and traced it with a pencil, then cut it out. The turquoise pear (LL563) in the background was stenciled with teal pigment ink onto turquoise cardstock. The edges of the traced and cut piece were edged with pigment ink by sliding it on the edge of the pigment ink pad and sprinkled with teal embossing powder from the Encrusted Jewel Teal Kit (EJK06), then heated and mounted onto the turquoise stenciled pear card. The window was created by tracing the 6-paned window grid stencil (LJ812) with a pencil onto brown card stock...then cut the windows out with a craft knife and back the window with acetate.  The background was "Frantaged" with the  Encrusted Jewel Teal Kit (EJK06) and the window was placed on top and mounted.

Now, hop on over to the next in line. Don't forget to leave some love for a chance to win, and just 'cuz it's nice!

Dream It Up! (you're here)
