Dreamweaver Designs are to DIE For...

Welcome to the merry month of May! The Dream Team are challenging you this month to a "Flora and Fauna" theme! Considering most of the Dreamweaver designs incorporate both of these in the huge variety of stencils, you should have no problem playing along with our challenge this month! 
Die for bare tree DX7020 Paper artist: Elaine Benedict
 
Elaine Benedict sent me this beautiful Spring creation to post. Thanks Elaine for all the lovelies you send my direction...it is especially appreciated when I travel and don't have time to create. The bare tree is enhanced and made into a live creation for our "Fauna and/or Flora" May Challenge! It always amazes me to see bare branches adorned with blossoms even before the leaves arrive. I have never been to a Cherry Blossom Festival, but hoping to get there one day.

This creation couldn't be simpler. First the word stencil Spring (LM293) was paste-embossed with regular Dreamweaver Embossing Paste (DEP) onto metallic cardstock and while still wet was sprinkled with a pale pink glitter.While the paste was drying the tree die (DX 7020) is die cut onto dark brown cardstock. Next she positioned the bare tree with glue dots onto the metallic cardstock. Then blossoms are punched out of a variety of printed transparent vellum papers and adhered to the tree branches with small glue dots. 


As usual, link your creations at the end of the Dream It Up! blog post, or at the end of our posts where it says, "Add Your Link". As the challenge gets underway, you'll see thumbnails of others who are playing along as inspirations for your own creations!

Please welcome our new "B" team, officially posting for the first time!
