Playing with Paste

Hello and welcome to a full week playing with Dreamweaver Stencils Embossing Paste! There will be video tutorials, techniques and team favorites on how to use this fabulous embossing paste on your stamping and mixed media projects.

DW_Paste_800

We have a great technique to start off our week that will add metallic shine to your embossing paste. Watch the video tutorial with founder of Dreamweaver Stencils, Lynell Harlow, as she creates a stunning hot air balloon card in two different applications.

That is an easy way to spice up your embossed stencil image and that extra sparkle it creates to a project. If you’re interested and for your convenience, here is a list of products and supplies used in the video.

This hot air balloon project started us off with a great view of what is in store for this week and there is still more today from our design team. Let’s fly by and see what they made playing with paste!

Pretty Poinsettia Mice

Hello and happy Friday afternoon. There have been so many great pretty poinsettia projects this week that we’re sure you have some new inspiration for your holiday projects.

Here’s a round-up of the week and access to the blog post for details are included so you can hop on over for review.  We introduced Cling Create A Poinsettia Stamp Set  on Monday and Tuesday with the coordinating Create A Poinsettia Die Cut Set and a great video from Fran with tips and techniques. Wednesday was scrapbooking day for a great use of your Stampendous stamps with memories in an economical way.

There are some fabulous stencils in our Dreamweaver Stencils Christmas section that we peeked at on Thursday with a step photo on how to combine stencils into a DIY ornament card. Today we are adding some of those sweet little mice from House-Mouse Designs to the inspiration palette.

Amanda and Mudpie share a solemn moment atop a Christmas poinsettia in this HMR41 Poinsettia Candle Rubber Stamp. The card below is done with colored pencils and all sorts of fun circles die cut, punched and embossed with our DWLX7029 Spiral Dots Stencil. The added sentiment from the new SSC1231 Holiday Expressions Perfectly Clear Stamp Set pulls it all together.

This is a repost. We are participating in Seth Apter’s Treasure Hunt today. He’s linking to tons of the buried treasure on the blogosphere, so grab a cool beverage and a kitten and prepare to be amazed. You can see links to the other participating artists on Seth’s blog at thealteredpage !!!

We sent some of the world’s best mixed media bloggers an assortment of our fun Stack Art products. We asked for their out of the box ideas and examples, and whew, you will be blown away as we share them this week!

You know you can make these simple, beautiful tag projects easily and quickly. But when you take the ingredients for a simple tag to the next level, WOW!

Our Stack Art Kits have three components:

  • The Stack Art Kraftboard Kit which includes all the kraftboard pieces you’ll need to make at least 4 amazing creations; die cut, double-sided adhesive for all the kraftboard pieces; and sentiments you can use to make each piece a special gift or card embellishment.
  • The Stack Art Stamp Sets which include an assortment of terrific background stamps and other images plus an acrylic handle.
  • The Stack Art Elements Kits which each include five jars of embellishing goodness to stick to your adhesive covered kraftboard pieces.

We’ve shown you in a series of videos how terrific these kits are for making ATC’s, mementos, place cards, photo frames, etc. You can check out the stack art videos on our YouTube Channel.

Going beyond what we’ve done before, we’ve got nine guest artists and our own design team showing us great ideas for Stack Art this week.

We’d love you to visit all their blogs, and leave your nicest, most insightful comments. We’ll be giving away three Stack Art prize packages this week based on your blog comments. Each Package will contain one Stack Art Kraftboard Kit, one Stack Art Stamp Set, and one Stack Art Elements Kit!

Create A Poinsettia

Welcome back to another day of pretty poinsettias! We had a chance to see in video we posted yesterday all the possibilities using Create A Poinsettia Cling Stamp and Die Cut Set, but did you spot Fran’s great idea for keeping track of the parts of the free template included in the stamp package? How about her tip for lining up the dies onto the image for cutting quickly and efficiently every time? If not, stop by Monday’s blog post and see the video.

Today is a sneak peek at the products themselves before a little project treat or two as well. This gorgeous poinsettia flower arrangement is accompanied by a vintage style greeting for a great card or scrapbook page and yes holiday ornaments, too!

The coordinating die cut set will help layer the poinsettia flower into four sections, but really you can stamp and layer until it looks just they way you want. Just stamp out a few extra flowers from to create a beautiful three-dimensional effect with it.

One of the possibilities Fran shared in the video is to use thin chipboard cut with the dies to add stability to each flower layer and  then add a jump rings to attach beads and a hook or loop for a pretty ornament. Here’s her finished sample she started in the video and it turned out beautiful!
