Dreamweaver Stencils' New Releases and a Free Week!

This week is a free week again for the Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream Team challenge, PLUS...this is the week that the brand NEW designs are released as well. I sooooo love this new "Apron" stencil (which could also be used as a sundress), and have created several super fun designs with this. This version would work well for Mother's Day coming up, or just for the fun of it. The Apron was paste embossed with white. The process goes like this:

1. Place stencil on brown cardstock. Place removable tape around all four edges.
2. Using palette knife or Paste Spreader, spread paste across stencil at slight angle. Holding knife at 90 degree angle (straight up and down on edge), scrape off excess paste.
3. Carefully peel away tape from last three edges. Use first as a "hinge" to lift stencil and remove pasted panel. Set aside to dry.
4. Place stencil in water and use soft scrub brush to clean and let dry.
5. When paste is dry (approx. 30 minutes), place stencil back over image, and apply Palette Glue with jumbo Dauber over pasted surface.
6. Apply heat tool slightly until tacky.
7. Pour glitter over tacky surface. Pour off excess.

The rest of the card was just a matter of layering papers, a little distressing with ink. Of course, the seamstress in me had to add brad "buttons" and a rick rack border to the apron, as well as a little stitching and buttons on the card.  Now be sure to take the tech trek around to the rest of the team's blogs (links at right), leave some love as you go (including some for me!), create your own free theme design, and link it to the Mr. Linky on the Dream It Up! blog.

Great combo Pam, I love brown and pink together. I wish I could sew because I really like the look of stiching on a card!
