A Fresh New Vision


Just returned yesterday from the Craft and Hobby Association international show in Anaheim, California, and I am the most amazing combination of exhausted and creatively stoked! So many wonderful new ideas whirling around in my head. So many cool products to incorporate into my own creations. Since I was at the show for Dreamweaver Stencils, I have to say that we have the most gorgeous stencils out there, with so many wonderful techniques to use with them. I wish that every one of you could have been there to see the Dream Team's booth samples in person. Hopefully, over the next few weeks, you'll have the chance to see them online.

My post today features the new Bride stencil. She is so sweetly elegant, that your mind whirls with all the ways to show her off. I kept mine simple today, using the Ink Transfer technique (or Letterpress). Very similar to the technique from the baby card that I posted last week. For the bride, I spritzed the stencil with Sparkling Silver Memories Mists and placed it face up on the base plate of my embossing machine. Next layer was my cardstock, then the rubber embossing mat, and two clear plates. When this pile is run through the machine, it does two things...it transfers the shimmery ink to the cardstock, and embosses the stencil design into the paper! The small strip on the card base was done with the same technique, but using the Damask stencil. I added a Stampendous stamped sentiment, some pearl swirls, and a few tiny rhinestones. So elegant, and perfect for a wedding card, bridal shower, etc.

If you'd like to see all the new designs, please visit the Stencil with Style site. Any of Dreamweaver products can be purchased there, or at the local stores listed on the Dreamweaver Stencils web site HERE.

This definitely has the WOW! factor. Trying to be totally unbiased and impartial, I made it a mission to check each CHA booth for stencils and Dreamweaver clearly has the best product out there.
