Dreamweaver Double Days Finale…a Bit of Magic with Mica

Here we are on our final day of Dreamweaver Double Days! We’ve loved all of your wonderful comments regarding the technique videos and the samples that we’ve shared here, as well as on the individual team blogs. This tells us that YOU love it when we share all of our not-so-secret tips with YOU! So…expect to see more in the future! Today’s video is a technique tutorial that always has the recipients of your creations going, “Ooooh and aaaah”! Follow along as Dreamweaver Stencils‘ founder, Lynell Harlow, demonstrates using mica powders* with Matte and Glossy Embossing Pastes

Amazing, isn’t it? And super easy to do. How about a double dip of samples from our team members featuring this technique?

Created by Alison Heikkila featuring the Dreamweaver Open Feather design with Pearlescent Embossing Paste and Metallic F/X powders. This technique is called Molten Magic!
Kristine_floral with dots F:X
Created by Kristine Reynolds featuring the Dreamweaver Stylized Dahlia, Matte Black Embossing Paste, and Metallic F/X mica powders.

WHOA! Wait just one minute, you say? Alison’s card is not the same technique at all. Mmmm. Yes it is, with one variation. This is the Molten Magic technique, so called because you paste-emboss just as in the video (preferably a glossy paste), sprinkle it with mica powders*, and HEAT it using a heat tool until it is puffy and bubbly. This adds great texture, and a totally different look, and all she did was heat it! Pssst, you can do this technique with Stampendous Fran•tagé Embossing Enamels, for a totally different look as well!

Now, let’s go see what the team members have been playing with for today. Oh, and leave them some love, please. They’ve worked hard this week!

Dreamweaver Double Day Wednesday

Feeling in the mood for some heavy metal? For today’s posting for Dreamweaver Double Days, we have an awesome tutorial from Dreamweaver Stencil’s Founder, Lynell Harlow, demonstrating the use of stencils with metal…specifically aluminum, which can be purchased in a variety of colors. Following the video, we’ve posted two samples by team members demonstrating two ways to use the techniques mentioned.

Melt Media Magic

Were you able to catch the livestream event Stampendous did with Charity Wings this afternoon? Hopefully it will be up on Charity Wings YouTube channel soon so you can see it if you missed it.

They filmed and interviewed our very own Fran Seiford from the SPC Mixed Media Show today, and Fran had an opportunity to share her Melt Media Technique with Elena.

Fran Demonstrates Melt Media

 

This terrific technique uses embossing powders as an art medium, not just for stamping, any more. With an electric griddle as a steady heat source, Fran uses the vast array of Stampendous embossing powders to make incredible pieces of art.  She uses the powders to paint some incredible scenes on chipboard “tiles” then adheres them to mixed media canvases.

These incredible creations and lots more can be seen in the Tips and Techniques section of our website. You’ll also find complete directions there for this amazing look. We’ll also be linking the videos soon. It’s really exciting! We can’t wait to see if you try something similar! Do share what you make with us on our Facebook Page or Flickr Group!

 

Anyway You Paste It

The first two days of our playing with paste week we’ve seen some awesome samples, tutorials, tips and techniques. It’s already Wednesday and there is plenty more inspiration coming our way. Today we have Lynell Harlow back with us in a video tutorial and our designer’s posting their playing with paste projects.

Find out how Lynell uses the Plaid stencil for an easy and colorful background. She also has a few tips about glossy and matte embossing pastes. Enjoy the video and check out the supply list for all the great products.
