Dreamweaver Stencils: A Shower of Talent with the Dream Team!





Welcome to a new monthly challenge with the Dream Team, and welcome to our new Dream Team! Today's a big day for all of us, as we introduce the wide variety of creative inspiration from our talented ladies...so wide in fact that we've divided our team of twelve into two teams, who'll post twice per month each. In addition, we have a guest designer this month to provide a unique take on creating with Dreamweaver, Alison Heikkila!


The Dream Team, as well as Dreamweaver, are heading off to new challenges and new horizons...all aimed at providing more and more crafters the opportunity to learn and share and experience the art of stenciling in its many forms. Paper-crafting, scrapbooking, home decor...there is virtually nothing in life that can't be made a little brighter, and a lot more beautiful with the addition of some wonderful Dreamweaver stencils and products.

Our challenge, and YOURS as well, is to create whatever inspires you with the theme of "Mists, Drizzle, and Showers". Now, open your minds up to the possibilities! Yes, you can think literally of rain, or you can think of the figurative. Maybe add Memories Mists to your project. Create a misty, drizzly mood. It could be on the edge of creepy, or just that relaxed feeling of a rainy day, curled up with a cup of tea, and a good book. It's up to you. But WE want to see what you come up with, so please post your creations on your  blog, an online gallery, and link it on the Dream It UP! blog, or email pictures of your projects to lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com.

My card for today is more literal. I used the Dreamweaver Umbrella, Rain, and Rain Words, in a pointillism technique with my Copic markers. I then pasted Translucent Embossing Paste over the umbrella for more shine and dimension. I inked some "rain drops" over the panel, and paste-embossed in yellow the sentiment on some wonderful May Arts cotton ribbon. For more info on the steps of this card, please check out my tutorial on Paper Craft Planet this week.

Speaking of May Arts...look forward to seeing great quantities of their line of ribbons, and trims, and cords, oh my! We will be working as partners in craft for the next year. This means that WE will get to play with their fabulous product, and their team will play with ours!

Here's the list of our team players for this week including our guest designer:

I enjoyed looking at your card Pam especially when I'm saying 'how'd she do that?' Heading to PCP to check out the tutorial.

Your pointillistic approach is very interesting. I love that you stencilled the ribbon. I keep forgetting that you can do that!

Beautiful card Pam! The pointillism coloring is perfect... makes a pretty unbrella! I'd like to have a real one just like it. Looking forward to a year of fun crafting with you!

I love the use of Copics with the stencils. I will need to remember to used them with some of my future projects. Also like the idea of stencil paste on ribbon. This was a very fun card!
