Free Week with Dreamweaver!

Since I have been out of town since Sunday I am so glad we have a FREE week for the challenge with Dreamweaver Stencils! So I am going to join a lot of my design team friends that love the GEARS stencil and post a card using this great NEW stencil!

I love using copper with stencils.  This is a very thin copper that my father-in-law shared with me!  Thanks Tom Van Doren for the cool copper!  I of course had to heat it to make the colors change but it is so fun.  Then I used a mirror card stock for the sentiment!

This is the gears used on acetate by 7 Gypsies!  Then Advantus Corp embellishments.

I know this is short and sweet but hope you enjoy these two cards!  Happy Creating!

Color Way Challenge For Dreamweaver Thursday

Well, I am excited this week for the challenge is lime and gray!  Now, I could have done a card but that would be super easy!  So, I started with a mini stencil by Dreamweaver.  I also mixed my glossy green embossing paste with a little yellow paste to make my lime color! 

So I put the stencil on my grayish geode stone and used my lime paste to emboss the apple.  (My kids are back in school and I can't help but think of an apple for the teacher!)  I set the stone aside to dry. 

After the paste was 100% dry and set I wire wrapped the pendant.  When I finished the actually wrapping I used the loose ends to add beads as an accent.  So this is the final product!

Hope you have enjoyed today's post.  If you really like this piece come visit my store on Art Fire!  You can buy this piece or several others!  See you next week!  Congratulations again to all the winners of the Woodware Blog Hop!  Enjoy your goodies!

Happy Creating

Thrusday - Free Theme Dreamweaver!

Thank you again one and all who played a long with us on the Wood Ware/Dreamweaver Blog hop!  What fun we had.  I had a different post ready for today but don't know if it is legal so changed my post!  So, this is a frame that I have done this past week for my Art Fire Store!  I used a frame from Michael's and then used paper from Graphic 45, and the yellow brick road is, of course, by Dreamweaver.  I have layer upon layer in this cool frame.  I used UTEE for the texture and color over the paper to seal it all!  I also used some great  "emerald" city gems by Connie Crystals!  Gives a great feeling of OZ!  Of course I had to make the ruby slippers glitter!  It was a lot of fun to create this project.  Hope you visit my store to see what else I have been up to!
