Final Day of the Imagine Crafts & Dreamweaver Stencils Collaboration

Hello and welcome to the final day of the Imagine Crafts & Dreamweaver Stencils collaboration! All week long, members of both Design Teams have been making amazing projects using products from both companies. What an amazing collaboration it has been! And for all of you hoppers out there, Three prize packages are available, each containing one set of each of these inks and stencils/dies. Just leave comments on each post of each day this week (June 9th - June 13th) for a chance to win! Winners will be announced on Tuesday, June 17th!


And here is my project for today.


I used the fantastic Hot Air Balloon stencil and colored it up using the stunning Radiant Neon collection from Tsukineko. Each color of the neons has been used in the balloon. The Picasso Tool is a MUST have for tackling something like this. It masked off each section so perfectly for me. My sentiment is from the Birthday Words stencil, which is extremely versatile. I think this card would be great for graduation, for example.

The Picasso Tool was used also to create my background clouds. It may appear complicated, but it really isn't. I used Summer Sky Memento Ink and started at the lower right corner. Then I just built my clouds up from there, applying the ink with a finger dauber. I love the effect. I distressed the edge of my light blue cardstock, inked some Electric Purple around the edges, and applied pop dots to my hot air balloon for some dimension. This has been such a fun week! Thank you for all of your wonderful comments, and the amazing eye candy the bloggers have shared! Below is the full hop list for today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Your card goes so well with your site's design...the girls in the clouds now surrounding your newest creation of well...clouds. Your daughter must be having fun with this one!

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!
