Neon Poinsettias

Where did the summer go? Kids are back in school, with all the insanity that goes with it, vacations are a not-so-distant memory, and it is once again time to get busy with the important things in life...crafting for the holidays! Yay! All of September the Dream Team will be featuring all the new goodies we have for the "Most wonderful time of the year", the fall and winter holiday season. New stencil designs, new dies, and...brand new embossing folders featuring some of our top-selling designs, all to be found on-line through the Stencil with Style web-site, or your local papercrafting store.
Here's my holiday inspiration for this week:

I used the brand new Tall Poinsettia stencil (LL 3046), as well as the sentiment portion of Season's Greetings (LG 677). For the Poinsettia, I used white embossing paste on my black cardstock. After it dried, I used several colors of the totally rad Radiant Neon ink pads from Imagine Crafts, which were applied with daubers. I hope you can see the subtle color changes and shading that I did.

It was quite fun to work with such non-traditional colors for this card. I applied the sentiment in much the same way, but I masked off the holly leaves and berries. And I just used black ink for it. Simple and FUN for the holidays!

Please check out the rest of the team that is posting this week. Thanks for stopping b. Have an inspiring day!

This is beautiful! Great pop off of the black. Was that textured cardstock? It almost looked fuzzy...

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
