Dreamweaver: More Birthday Fun

Welcome to the birth of a new year...2015 to be precise! In honor of that, we've decided that our monthly challenge for January will be Birthday Wishes. We'd love for you to play along with us, and link your creations to the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of this post, or on the Dream It Up! blog, for a chance to win the stencil of your choice...and remember, using Dreamweaver products gets you bonus points towards an extra stencil!

Here's my birthday wish for this week:

I'm going to cheat a bit here and post a previous creation, as apparently I totally forgot to create something for this week's post before I'd gone off to play at the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) show in Anaheim. Anyhoooooo...I kind of love this card, and it's super simple to create. The large focal panel is a piece of Bazzill Basics' Dotted Swiss white cardstock, on which I'd pasted the Stylized Dahlia design in Regular Embossing Paste from Dreamweaver. Once dry, I brushed a soft pink ink over the surface with a large stencil brush, from top to bottom and left to right. The birthday sentiment, Bonne Fete (French), was pasted on a section of cotton May Arts ribbon in pink paste. No, Dreamweaver does not make a pink paste, but you can create your own...or any color you prefer. Just add a bit of ink, acrylic paint, spray mist, or even mica powders to a dab of the Regular Paste, and mix it with your palette knife.

Once the ribbon was dry, I wrapped it around the focal panel, and adhered the layers to my pink card base. A few self adhesive pearls, and the end result is a beautiful, textural, slightly Shabby Chic-style card for someone wonderful!

I do apologize if you visited this post earlier, and nothing was here to oooh and aaaah over. I hope that won't prevent you from ooohing and aaahing over this one!

Of course, more birthday inspirations coming your way from the Dream Team:
