Dreamweaver Blog Hop week- Day 3


Yes! It's that time of year again! The time when we inspire crafters on both sides of the "pond" with a mix of both Dreamweaver and Woodware UK* products for the holidays! Six days, SIX, of beautiful, elegant, merry, cute, artsy, and craftsy projects to have you heading out to your local stores or internet sites to buy these goodies immediately!


Of course, there will be prizes as well. Three prize packages will be given to three commenters during this week's posts on the team's blogs, including five stencils and one nested die set. You can have an opportunity to win these goodies by leaving some holiday sweetness for each team member posting each day, to be one of the three winners for the week. Here are the team members that are inspiring you today:

Here's my design for today

Dry embossing using the "Strie" method today. I've used the stencil LG 746 Star Dream Christmas Tree for this effect & highlighted the finished design using some Stardust Stickles.  Give the card you have chosen to use a spritz with some surgical spirit to acheive a deeper, crisper embossed finish. Always remember to have your stencil  on the "A" base plate of you embossing machine as far away from the rollers as possible with card, mat & "B" plate on top avoid bending your stencil.
After embossing, stroke some ink from our chosen pad  (I've used Brilliance pearlescent Sky Blue) coming from each side of the card in turn- this is a sweeping motion. Now layer onto some teal card & mount onto a 6" x 6" card blank. I never learn not to use mirror card when I have to photo my designs for the blog as I usually get a reflection of myself ! To finish add some Woodware turquoise polka dot organza ribbon & the peel off words come from 91158 Francoise Seasonal Words.

  5. Debbie, I really love that tree...I'm going to have to find out what the "strie" method is...it turns out beautiful!!! The mirror base might not take a snapshot well, but it sure sets the card off beautifully!!!
