Love Flourishes

The Stampendous theme has been sharing all sorts of Valentine's Day projects with you this week, and today we are featuring Dreamweaver Stencils within that theme. 

Supplies:

Plus:Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®, Prism, Core’dinations
Brown Memento Ink by Tsukineko
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Instructions:
  1. Take pale blue cardstock and tape Large Flourish stencil on all sides to keep it from moving and to keep your space clean. Apply a thick glob of Glossy White Embossing Paste to one side of paste spreader using the palette knife, and then hold the Paste Spreader at a 45 degree angle, and drag it across the paste and over the stencil. Remove the stencil carefully and let dry.
    2. Cut out a mat of chocolate brown cardstock. Sprinkle Shabby Blue embossing powder from the Blue encrusted Jewel Kit on to one of the short sides, and heat from underneath to melt. Repeat on the other short side.
    3. Cut out card base in a latte color to the dimensions of 6 1/2″ x 10.” Fold in half.
    4. Choose a sentiment from the Love Always Perfectly Clear Set and stamp using brown ink. Glue all layers together.

Below are the ladies that are posting along with me today. Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
