Dreamweaver and Woodware UK: Christmas in August...the Tradition Continues, Day Two


Welcome to the annual Dreamweaver and Woodware Christmas in August extravaganza week! Monday through Saturday we will be knocking your Christmas stockings off with fun and inspirational ideas for the upcoming holidays. All that you need to do is hop back and forth across the "pond" on each day, oohing and aaahhhing as you go, and leaving us plenty of holiday love. In return, you'll be entered to randomly win one prize package for a UK commenter, and a second prize package for a US commenter. The prize packages will be featuring products distributed in the UK by Woodware...including Dreamweaver and Stampendous!

Prize includes four stencils, one die, and two stamps, selection may vary.
Here's what I've created:


 I just love playing with the Molten Magic technique! So simple, quick, and no waiting for paste to dry! I paste-embossed the Heart Ornaments stencil in Metallic Gold on a gorgeous blue cardstock, which I had stamped an image from the Elegant Borders Perfectly Clear set from Stampendous in deep blue ink. While the paste was wet, I sprinkled Kiwi and Ivy Garden Metallic F/X powders over the pine branches, and Kimono Red over the ornaments. Then I used my heat tool over it all until it's bubbling, constantly moving the heat tool until all of the pasted surfaces have bubbled and pretty much settled down. I let it cool for a minute, and then pressed a Versamark coated Stampendous border into the surface to add an interesting impression. Hmmm, what's your impression? Btw, a bit of trivia for you...did you know that our Molten Magic technique was originally discovered by a Design Team member for Stampendous? Yes, Jennifer Dove came up with this bright idea out of impatience, and shared with us! What cool techniques will YOU come up with using a mix of Dreamweaver and Woodware UK products?



Now's the time for you to leave a comment and move on to the next designer for today:

You are so clever, stamping the background first, I finish the card and then decide it is a bit plain! You are my hero!
