Summer Hues for Christmas?



Yes, it's Christmas in August with the Dreamweaver Stencils' design team. But, sometimes it's fun to think out of the traditional holiday color box. This was exactly what I was aiming for when I created this card. First, I paste-embossed in Glossy White the new Star Dream Christmas Tree. While the stencil was still in place, and the paste still wet, I sprinkled a selection of Metallic F/X over the surface. Then I removed the stencil to clean it, and set aside the pasted and sprinkled piece to dry. When dry, I used a piece of "Swiffer" sheet to wipe away the excess powder. The panel was layered with a pretty mint green mat atop a machine-embossed panel with the Waves and Dots stencil. A pretty sheer pink bow was the finishing touch.


For some amazing inspiration and opportunities to win some  great prize packages, come back starting next Monday, August 20th, for a week long celebration of the newly released Dreamweaver designs, with a collaboration between the Dream Team and the Woodware UK design team:


Can't wait until next week? Then pull out your Christmas designs and play along with the team. Link your creations on the Dream It Up! blog, or email your designs to lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com for a chance to win one of the new Heart Ornaments stencil shown here:


Pretty cool opportunity, huh? Need some more great ideas? Check out the team blogs:

Such a beautiful look you got. I love the non traditional colors as it made a modern, clean look. The use of the pink bow is great. (I never thought to use a swifter sheet!Thanks for the tip!)
