Have You Played with the New Dreamweaver Christmas Toys Yet?

Did you have fun with the Dreamweaver/Woodware UK hop last week? We sure did! Those WW girls are amazingly talented! Are you wondering if you won any of the great prize packages? Check this past Sunday's post on the Dream It Up! blog.This week we are finishing off our Christmas in August challenge, which means this will be your final week to send us links (or email pics) for them to be considered for the prize we are offering this month, the brand new Heart Ornaments stencil. More info on the Dream It Up! blog.

For my card today, I'm featuring last year's Ornate Christmas Tree along with this year's Christmas Borders (yes, they match!). I love the border patterns, very Scandinavian-inspired. I used the new Molten Magic technique on this, with one slight change. I did not sprinkle any Metallic F/X over the wet glossy pastes. So, when I went to heat the pastes with my heat tool, it bubbled wonderfully, but it also toned down the shine of the metallic copper on the background, and the glossy shine of the red paste on the front panel, giving it a burnished/aged look. The technique is very simple to do. I've posted previously with it HERE, or you can check out Laura Drahozal's tutorial with this technique on Paper Craft Planet HERE.

Do the run-around and check out what the rest of the team is playing with now:

You know you want that new Heart Ornaments stencil, so hurry and link your Christmas Dreamweaver creations to the mr. linky on the Dream It Up! blog, or email pics to for an opportunity to win!
