Go Climb a Tree with Dreamweaver Stencils

This week, the Stampendous Design Team is climbing trees! Ok, not really...but we are encouraging YOU to climb a tree! Ok...not really that either, so why don't we just share projects with trees, and maybe give one or two a hug? Yeah, that's more like it. Though I do like to climb this one in Salem, Mass. But I digress. Since it's Dreamweaver Thursday, today's project is focusing on one of their fantastic dies. Take a look.

I used the Tree Line die for this card. I LOVE this die. It's so pretty and serene. I'd like to tell you how I made the Tree Line Background. It's pretty easy to do!

I started off by cutting the die in black cardstock. I then adhered it to a sheet of Double Stick Mounting Tape, which I trimmed to fit the die cut. Then, I took my Yellow Micro Glitter and sprinkled it on the lowest portion, rubbed it in, and shook off the excess. I am working from the bottom up so that my colors don't run into each other, though that would be a nice effect too!

Next, I used my Orange Micro Glitter. I rubbed it in, and shook off the excess. I repeated this step with Pink, Purple, and Blue glitters, working my way up.

This is what the finished piece looks like. Kind of like sand art! Next, I chose all of my papers and a wee bit of May Arts ribbon and glued everything together. Remember, the die is on Double Stick Tape, so I just had to peel the backing off to get it on to my card.

My glitters all came from Stampendous of course, from several of their glitter kits. Click HERE to see them! Some of the other Design Team members have tree-loving projects to share with you today. Please give them all a look-see. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Wonderful card, Alison! Love the colors!
Gorgeous! A great sparkly sunset through the trees. Thank you for sharing a tutorial today!
Your tree-line card is stunning and I love the complementary green glittery nail polish too! LOL! Also the mounting and design of the card adds to the Fab look too. Miss you guys...but our summer in Eastern Oregon has been special too! Baby due in a week (or two according to the midwife.)

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

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images. I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set  and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder. I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes
