Dreamweaver Stencils are to Die for/ Plus...we have Winners!

Scroll down to the bottom to find out who the two comment winners are for this past week's challenge. Thanks to all who joined my own private challenge as I went crazy with the owl die set this past week. 

We are continuing our month of Dreamweaver Stencils to die for. I have to admit my card this week did not use stencils, but I am sharing a bit more with you regarding our new dual alphabet die set which will be available mid August.

I die-cut the large and small pears (DL563) into the front of my card. Then I ran the dual alphabet through the die cutting machine (Big Shot). Here is the sentiment inside the card...great for an anniversary or just a card of friendship:

The new dual alphabet can be used two ways. And a great advantage is that the pieces that come out of the dies are not bits and pieces ( I guess the technical term for that is "counters"). Each one of the alphabet pieces comes out in ONE little pieces to keep track of. Remember a couple of days ago I told you that I had something else to share? Well, here's a picture of the caddy that they will be sold in. It has 13 smaller boxes (each about the size of a deck of cards) inside the large box and you can place your die cut alphabet pieces in these to organize and save your extra cuts for later could even put three dies in each box with the cuts:

As I said earlier, our new alphabet and caddy will be ready mid-August. Be sure to come back next Thursday and I will show you another aspect of this dual alphabet system that I think you are going to like.

Now don't forget to join our "to die for " challenge this month and sign up with inlinkz below. Remember, it doesn't have to be a Dreamweaver Stencils die and stencil, however I do love seeing what you create with our stencils. It doesn't even have to have a die in it, we're easy. Just come along and play with is the team and our guest designer, Terri Sproul. Leave them some nice comments, it's one of the reasons they work so hard on the Dream it UP team.


Occasionally I like to tell people how we choose our random winnners. We try to change it up, so that it really is random. Sometimes I use the random number generator, but this time what I used it to choose two people from each of the seven days. (Only one of your comments qualified for each of the days and my team members aren't counted if they leave comments.) After I chose two comments from each day using the generator I wrote those names on pieces of paper (14 comments and some of you were in there more than once) and placed them in the blue bowl (my lucky blue bowl) then had the WayneMeister (see he's good for other things besides Zentangle work) pull out two names. They are as follows:

BURNING RUBBER from Sunday's comments
SABRINA from Saturday's comments

Please send me an email with your snail mail address and we will send you both the Nested Owl Die Set.
