Peace: Day 6 of the 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 used the beautiful Pine Cone stencil for this card, and I started off by embossing it with White Embossing Paste. After the image dried, I placed the stencil back on to my image and colored it in using Versa Color inks and a stencil brush. 

You can see how dimensional it is here. I used the "Peace" sentiment from Woodware's Curly Festive Greetings set, and I heat embossed that with an off white. I mounted all of my layers, and then went around the edges with Frosted Lace Stickles. Clean and simple! I hope you have enjoyed the last 6 days of collaborative posts. I know I sure have! Thanks to Dreamweaver Stencils and to Woodware for all of their hard work in making this week happen. Have an inspiring day!

I love your pine cones, and I must get the white embossing paste - this is so different than using the coloured pastes and you get much better subtle colours!
very lovely, the glitter is very catching, great colors.
