Let's start hopping!

Get ready to be inked, pasted, encrusted, stenciled and stamped!


All of this week the Dreamweaver Stencils' Dream Team and the Stampendous Design Teams will be providing some "Dream-pendous" inspiration for you, with multiple opportunities to win some fabulous prizes from both companies. Each day this week, you will be directed from both the Stampendous Impressions' blog or the Dream It Up! blog to the players du jour for your oohing and aaahing pleasure. Everyone will be playing on Saturday, the 14th with our final hop for the week. This is your opportunity to see how to mix and mingle your creativity...if you are a stenciler, you will be fascinated at combining stamps with your first love. If you are a stamper, you will be wowed at how stencils can add to your impressions.

Leave me some love before you "gear up" for the next player:

I'll be back Wednesday with yet another creation for this fun blog hop! Hope you'll stop by and say hi!
Dreamweaver LJ882 Diamond Grid stencil with Black Matte Paste
Stampendous NEW Phone Gent Cling Stamp CRV264
and Frantage Vintage Glitter

Stamp Phone Gent with Black Ink onto white cardstock; heat set.
Using a small Versamark pad, ink edges of white cardstock and sprinkle on silver embossing powder (DO NOT HEAT, YET!); sprinkle over the embossing powder Silver Vintage Glitter. NOW heat from behind until the embossing powder melts and incorporates the Vintage Glitter into it.
Layer onto black cardstock and red mat.

Using REMOVABLE TAPE (Scotch brand works the best); adhere LJ882 Diamond Grid stencil over red cardstock. Completely tape around all four sides of the stencil. Using Dreamweaver's Paste Spreader and Black Matte paste, pull a light layer of stencil paste over the stencil (NOTE: let gravity do most of the work don't push or press with the spreader or you'll end up pushing paste under the fine bridgework of the stencil.). Set aside to dry (or use a griddle on WARM heat).

Once dry, trim to desired size and layer onto white cardstock.

Cardstock is Coredinations Vintage from my "stash" as is the button.

CAS but I think really emphasizes this fun new stamp from Stampendous!
