Sneak Peek Week/Newest Designs #2

OK, so it may be a little hard to see the contrast in this photo of the retro background stencil (LX7012) with retro kitty(LL3020), but I really loved doing the double glitter technique and then pasting on top of the glittered paper. As mentioned in yesterday's post the team is showcasing some of the new designs that we are showing retailers this week at CHA in Anaheim. But I also have to say that I really enjoy this double glitter technique and if you would like how to instructions email me at lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com and I will send you the step-by-step instructions. You can also view how to do it in my "Tips & Tools" DVD.

These new retro kitty designs have a little history. Fellow stenciler and card artist Pam Hornschu (the leader of our design team actually), happens to be a cat lover. So she asked if we would be interested in these retro kitties that her son, Bryan helped her design. And of course they are just purrrr-fect for a couple of our retro backgrounds! The standing kitty that I paste-embossed for yesterday's post had glitter on him, but this kitty stencil (LL3020) was very simply paste-embossed with Matte Black Embossing Paste (DMBP) and dried. The small thank you (LS1009) was done the same way. So thank you Bryan for the lovely designs!

Now don't forget to play along with our Valentine challenge this month. You could be the winner of some Dreamweaver product! Just don't forget to link up to Mr. Linky below. And take some time to see what the rest of the team is sharing today. Stop by everyday this week for inspiration on what to do with the new designs.

Aw, thanks, Lynell for the mention for Bryan. Love the glitter colors you used in the background.

It IS a perfect color combination for that background, even if it doesn't show up well in the picture! Very cool and retro kitty.
