Flora and Fauna with Dreamweaver Stencils

Greetings! It's my first official blog post for the Dreamweaver Stencils DT! The Dream Team are challenging you this month to a "Flora and Fauna" theme! Considering most of theDreamweaver designs incorporate both of these in the huge variety of stencils, you should have no problem playing along with our challenge this month! As usual, link your creations at the end of the Dream It Up! blog post, or at the end of our posts where it says, "Add Your Link". As the challenge gets underway, you'll see thumbnails of others who are playing along as inspirations for your own creations!
Here is my creation for this week:

I took this pretty picture of my little girl over the weekend, and i knew I wanted to use the beautiful Corner Flowers stencil. I used Pearlescent Embossing Paste to get the image on to my cardstock. Once it dried, I applied several colors of Metallic FX powders with a Q-Tip. 

I love how the Metallic FX stuck to the background (since I applied them after the embossing paste was dry). 

Aren't the colors pretty? And there are so many choices! 

Please be sure to visit the links of my fellow "B" Teamers below to see more great Floral and Fauna themed projects. I hope you'll play along! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
