Festively Fall

Welcome to October and a new challenge from Dreamweaver stencils! The theme of the challenge this month is "Festively Fall". And so to get us started on that path, I thought I'd share with you 4 different projects I created using the same stencil, Maple Branch LJ906.

The first, a card, was created last year and I think perfectly represents the changing colors of the season.

This card was first machine embossed and then colored with pigment inks and a stencil brush. Very quick, very simple and very stunning.

The next card is one I will be teaching at Stampin' Cat on October 13. It uses Twinkling H2Os for the background and copper paste and Metallic F/X with the stencil.

And finally, I'll share with you my favorite and one that brings me a TON of compliments each time I wear it.

This pendant was made by embossing the Maple Leaf stencil over conditioned polymer clay and then brushing it with Metallic F/X. I wish you could see this in person. It truly is stunning.

I  hope by showing you just some of the versatility of Dreamweaver stencils you will be inspired to play along with our challenge this month. There are two winners each month. Please check out Dreamweaver's blog for all the details on how to enter (and win!)

And for more inspiration and amazing eye candy, please check out the other Dream Team blogs. You can find all their links in the right hand column.

Explain please how you emboss the leaves on the clay. Did you press the clay into the stencil? Love that pendant, and your cards are wonderful!
