Thursday's Dream Schemes/New Challenges for May

You could win these two stencils!
If you are here to see the winners of the April challenge be sure to scroll down to yesterday's post to view their creations.

May and June are the traditional months when I start thinking..."graduation creations". So we decided to feature it in our challenge...if you have something to share in that creative arena we are looking forward to seeing it! If you want to join us but don't have graduations in your near future we are also doing "Black and White with a POP!!!" Either a card or scrapbook page would be welcome and feel free to combine the colorway with graduation if you desire. As you can see I am not featuring graduation today...(but hope to next week). You can post as many times as you want to increase your chances of winning the two stencils you see here in my creation, LG713 swirls and LS90 celebrate. Two winners will be chosen. #1 best usage of Dreamweaver products and #2 best interpretation of the challenge.

Today I am sharing a very CAS/clean and simple card done with the double glitter technique. If you would like the detailed instructions please email me and I will send you a pdf file of the step-by-step process. To protect my swirl stencil (LG713) from getting "stuck" to the double adhesive mounting paper (DSM) I rubbed natural soap (DHHS) all over the back of the stencil before attaching it to the sticky paper. I then rubbed black glitter all over the openings of the stencil. Then I place the stencil face down against the table to remove the paper...if you do it this way instead of trying to pull the stencil off, it will protect the stencil from getting bent.  Then the area behind the swirls needs to be sprinkled with a transparent glitter and I chose a multi-colored crystal glitter.

My "pop" is the metallic yellow/gold cardstock, which I paste-embossed with Dreamweaver's Matte Black Embossing Paste (DMBP) and the word stencil Celebrate (LS90). 

If you are interested in joining our challenge be sure to link your creations to mr. linky below or email me at your "Black and White with a POP!!!" card or graduation themed scrapbook page. And of course feel free to visit the Dream team listed below...we are always looking for some love in the form of your wonderful comments. I also enjoy the emails you send...keep them coming.

Love this card. Very CAS and you know that's my favorite technique. Love your choice of colors.

We are scary, I chose Celebrate too! Love how you used the flourish, and, of course, who doesn't love glitter!

Very pretty. My first thought when I saw this was that someone had just popped the cork off of the champagne. Let the celebration begin!

Wendy said...

This is perfect Lynell. I hope you have a great weekend!
