Noel: Dreamweaver and Woodware Collaboration

Greetings! 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!)

And here's my project for today:

I started by stamping the Noel sentiment from Woodware's Curly Festive Greetings set on white cardstock with red ink. Then I covered it with a layer of Dreamweaver's Translucent Embossing Paste  and sprinkled some clear glitter on top. I set it aside to dry. The I cut out a few Holly Leaves from the new Holly and Swirls die (DL3005). 

I cut apart several of the leaves so that I could glue them just where I wanted. I added the berries, and a bit of Frosted Lace Stickles to some of the leaves. Just to mimic the clear glitter on the sentiment. This was a nice, simple card, that anyone that is new to stamping or die cutting can do. Or, if you need to make many of the same card. This would be a fairly quick one to do. Thanks for visiting me today. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
