Each week for the entire month of April, I will feature one or two of my favorite projects created with Dreamweaver stencils and giveaway one of the stencils used! Since I am stepping away from the Dreamweaver Design Team because of other commitments, this is just my way of trying to encourage more of you to get behind the versatility and creativity of Dreamweaver stencils! Remember to check out the Dreamweaver Design Team blogs for additional inspiration as well as the Dreamweaver Facebook page for exciting news and more giveaways!

This week I'm feeling a bit nostalgic so I thought I'd share a couple of cards I designed using the LL 3032 Large Cherries stencil. 

The first card uses the stencil and the rouging (circular) technique for applying pigment ink:

And this second version uses the same stencil on aluminum and colored with Dreamweaver's ColorSolutions alcohol ink:

Do you have a favorite? I can't decide. Leave me a comment below before midnight, Monday, April 21 and you could be the lucky random winner to win this stencil:



Linsey, send me your snail mail address by email to: 2nd-childhood@comcast.net and the Sandcastle stencil featured last week will be on its way to you!
Again, thanks for all your comments last week and be sure to leave a comment on this post to be entered in next week's random giveaway drawing!

Beautiful cards! My favourite is the second one but they are both pretty. Love the stencil used!

Oh my, this stencil is so pretty! LOVE cherries of all kinds (real and crafty!). Both cards are wonderful but I especially love the 1st one with the soft stenciled design.

I love both cards. the second one is very cleverly done, but I like the freshness of the first card slightly more.

Both cards are so lovely...but I do think the second one is my favorite.

i really like it when a stencil is shown with different tech.to show the versatility of them. i have to say i really like the perky touch of the ribbon but i do luv metal :). sorry that your leaving - you'll be missed.

Both cards look awesome in their own way. But the first is my favorite.
