Day 4 of the Dreamweaver & Woodware Collaboration!

Hello again! It's that time of year again! The time when we inspire crafters on both sides of the "pond" with a mix of bothDreamweaver 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:

Alison Heikkila (that's me!)
Here's my project for today:

Once again, I started with the sweet little  Patch Frosty from Woodware...but this time, I lobbed off his head! But...he didn't mind. ;) I placed him atop of the new Teacup Die (it's not even up on the web site yet!), where I used some fun holiday paper. I thought it looked very teacup-y. 

I colored the snowman and his scarf with colored pencils. I also added a wee bit of shading to the Dreamweaver Nesting Die that I used for the sentiment. The sentiment, which says "Happy Christmas to you" is from Woodware's Curly Festive Greetings set. I added little faux stitches to the edge of the sentiment to mimic the stitches on the snowman. I shaded the teacup jus a bit with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a cosmetic sponge. 

My pretty ribbon is from Maya Road, and I thought it topped the card off nicely. That's it for this card! Tomorrow I will have another project for this super-fun collaboration. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Cute. I love the snowman. He looks like he is either melting into the cup, or peering over the edge.

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!
