Woodware: Sparkle and Texture and Fun...Oh My!

A texture challenge, eh? I've picked up the gauntlet, and run with it for this card! Woodware carries so many wonderful products for adding texture and dimension to your craft products, that I've only begun to scratch the surface...

Using the basis of the Double Glitter technique, I've soaped up my Rolling Hills stencil on the back, and placed it on a panel of Dreamweaver Double-sided Mounting Paper which has been placed on a panel of white cardstock. Inside the "hills" I've added Stampendous Multi Crystal Glitter, Mica Chips, Silver Micro Glitter, and some Woodware Tiny Holeless Beads in blues and greens. Once I removed this panel from the stencil, I filled in the lines that were left with Silver Micro Glitter.

For the tree, I placed a panel of the Mounting Paper on another panel of white cardstock, and ran this through my die-cutting machine with the Leafless Tree Die. I removed the backing from the sticky paper, and covered the paper in Stampendous Mixed Silver Halo Glitter. I die cut a Stampendous snowflake as well, and in the same manner, covered it with the same mix.

Lots of sparkle. Lots of texture. Lots of fun!

"Let it Go" and "Build a Snowman" with Stampendous and Dreamweaver

So...maybe there's no snow to play in, but I bet your favorite paper-crafting buddy would love to play in all of the Stampendous/Dreamweaver winter images and stencils, like the ones shown here!

For my post, I've mixed the Stampendous Build a Snowman set (Copic colored and fussy cut), with the Dreamweaver Snowflakes Background, which I've pasted in regular Embossing Paste, and covered in Stampendous' new Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder. Between the puff in the paste and the puff in the powder, once heated, these flakes are super dimensional. Brushed over with a bit of Tsukineko® VersaMagic ink in Sea Breeze to highlight the designs, and bring the design together, they really stand out! The "snow banks" are sections cut from a panel of the Dreamweaver Christmas Borders Embossing Folders on white cardstock, and brushed with the same ink as before along with Pretty Petunia color as well.

The sentiment stands out by die cutting and layering it from the small frames on the Stampendous Pop Up Dies set. The finishing touch? You guessed it! Pom poms on the hats!

Take a refreshingly chilly journey around the web to visit the rest of the team as they post with some more snowy fun!

"Let it Go" and "Build a Snowman" with Stampendous

The Stampendous team have been building snowmen all this week, featuring this fun Perfectly Clear Build a Snowman set. For my post today, I created an entire snow family in a pop up card. Easy to accomplish by using the Stampendous Pop Up Die Set. Think how cool it would be to create your own family of snow people. You could even personalize them to sent out to family and friends.

My snow family are dressed in matching plaid 'cuz i love plaid, almost as much as I love pompoms...which, you notice, adorn each hat!
I've die cut a few Stampendous snowflakes from the same Core'dinations Glitter cardstock as the card base, and added some extra sparkle with the Fran•tagĂ© Spoonful of Snow. This product has a holiday-perfect mix of Chunky White Embossing Powder, Shave Ice, Crystal Glitter, etc.
