Guest Designer for the Holidays CAS

Hi, everyone! It's Lynell again here for Pam. The dear girl has finally succumbed to the current bug that is going around. All that stress of moving has finally taken it's toll. But Elaine Benedict, former sales rep for Dreamweaver Stencils has sent us this beautiful holiday creation. And this will give Pammie a few more days of R and R, which stands for rest and recovery! Hope you're better soon kiddo...

The November challenge has continued on with "The Holidays: CAS (clean and simple)". This card is definitely one you could make loads of because it is so simple to do. Elaine began by using a glossy black cardstock and placed the holly stencil (LL3005) on the left side, then  daubed it with Stamp and Stick Glue (GSP) and a jumbo dauber (KD02). Then stippled onto the wet glue the Metallic F/X mica powders, Kiwi, Kimono Red and Ivy Garden. This stenciling was done using small stencil brushes(BHB and GHB). Then she removed that stencil and positioned the Merry Chris…

Well, it's Lynell here again for Pam. Our fearless leader wants you to know she misses you, but still hasn't found her computer in the stack of boxes in her studio. Well, I guess I'm embellishing the truth just a bit...but the part about wanting you to know she feels bad that she hasn't been in touch with her blog and missing you is true... and she is looking forward to having all those crazy moving boxes empty and organized. A fortunate thing is that I have found one of her beautiful cards in my archives. And I don't think it is one that she has shared with you before. It even meets her requirements for our November challenge... The Holidays CAS (clean and simple). If you would like a chance to win a jar of embossing paste (your choice) and your favorite stencil (or our large paste spreader LM2010) just click HERE to find out the requirements. It's easy peasy! Just a matter of linking it to mr. linky on the Dreamweaver site...or if you don't have a blog or…

Festively Distressed Winner #4 and the Holidays CAS!

Hi's Lynell here, writing a quick note for Pam! She has been "moving" her home and studio bit by bit for the past month and finally this week they (the movers) arrived to move the big stuff. Thankfully the end is in sight and she will be able to breath again. Although she didn't have time to post a card she wanted you to know the winner of Week #4 of Festively here is what I am up to and the winner info too:
I am writing this note from Eastern Oregon, the home of and more importantly my parents home. This morning Wayne and I took a walk and saw this beautiful cascade of Fall berries and foliage. I knew Pam would love it and decided to share it with her and you at the same time. To me it said...The Holidays (CAS). Before you know it Thanksgiving and Christmas will be upon let's simplify our lives and enjoy it while we can.
Winner of Week #4:
