Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue with Dreamweaver

At Dreamweaver Stencils, we love to make our monthly challenges something for everyone, and not so strict that no one wants to play along. This month our challenge is, "Old, New, Borrowed, Blue", with the obvious thought being a wedding theme...but not necessarily. Add an old embellishment or picture. Use a new stencil design or technique. Borrow, or CASE (copy and say everything) another designers project, and obviously, blue...is blue. Where will YOUR creative process take you for this month? We'd love to see! And remember, linking your creations with the Inklinkz tool at the end of the team posts, provides you with the opportunity to win the stencil of your choice! Here's what I've created for this week...

I worked with the beautiful Lotus stencil. I worked with a few colors of pigment ink from Color Box, applies with a stencil brush to the entire flower. I then dusted on some glittery embossing powder and heat set it.

You can see the glitter a bit here. I also used a "Hello" from the Birthday Words stencil, using the same techniques as the flower. I also taped off the sentiments that are above and below the "Hello" so that I didn't accidentally ink them up.

I inked the edges of my cardstock, and added a simple border punch. It's kind of a Clean and Simple card, but the glitter really adds something to it. So, my Something Old is the inks (they are like 12 years old!), my Something New is the Lotus stencil, I didn't have a Borrowed, and the Blue...well, I think you can figure that out. ;) Here's the "B" team list...please leave everyone some love! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

This is wonderful...love that you made it a "hello" card too! Those are really fun to send to anyone! Thank you for the inspiration with the glittered embossing powder ...I like glitter and I like embossing powder, but I don't think I have anything that includes both. Could I make my own in a pinch?

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
