Still feeling festive? We hope so! Dreamweaver and Ranger still have two weeks left of our Festively Distressed collaboration, and we are full of distressing ideas...Tim Holtz' Distress Powder ideas, that is. Mixed with our fabulous line of stencil designs and exciting products, your creativity will know no bounds! If you missed the first two weeks, start HERE and HERE!
For our postings this week and next, we are offering you the opportunity to win one of two prize packages, perfectly coordinated for your holiday crafting. Simply leave a comment on each of our Dream Team's posts, and YOU could be one of two randomly selected winners!
The Dream Team have been challenged for the month of November to create something CAS (clean and simple) for the holidays. The extra challenge is mixing the Distress Powders in for the collaboration with Ranger. Think that it's possible? Well...let's see...
Here's what I came up with since you liked the step outs from my first week I tried this again! So here it goes!Step 1: Pick your Stencils and Distress Powders. (LJ 819 Snowflakes & LL 511 NOEL snowflake)
Black Soot, Dusty Concord & Weathered Wood
Step 2: Lay down double stick tape and peel off the back.
Step 3: Soap the back of the stencil.
Step 4: Place stencil on tape soap side down and press to make it firm on the tape.
Step 5: Cover with clear glitter.
Step 6: Remove paper from stencil. Hint..Lay the stencil flat and pull the paper away carefully so you don't bend your stencil.
Step 7: Pour on Dusty Concord.
Step 8: Add Weathered Wood (pour off the mixed colors in a baggie to use on other projects.)
Step 9: Heat with heat tool.
Step 10: Soap NOEL and put on sticky tape.
Step 11: Add some Silver Leafing.
Step 12: Rub in more Dusty Concord and tap of excess.
Step 13: Peel paper off stencil.
Step 14: Shake on Black Soot Embossing Powder.
Step 15: Heat set.
Step 16: Stamp background with stamp of your choice. (I am packing and had to use a stamp that was available! I love this stamp and it seems to go with the snowflakes!)
A closer look...
The finished card!!! I like the way this came out. I was looking for my stamp that says "snowflakes are winter's butterfly" But the butterfly is still pretty! LOL
