Dreamweaver Stencils to DIE For!

Pin It

I started this project by cutting out the Tree Line Twice.  Once from Graphic 45 French Country paper and also out of a fun Plastic Paper with designs in them.  The Plastic I had to run through more than once but I LOVE the result.  I then attached the plastic to the paper with Diamond Glaze! (I put the two pieces between my non-stick craft sheets and placed something heavy on them so it would dry flat!)  I then applied  Color Solutions to the top of the plastic once the layers were dry.

I then layered the die cut image on some cool specialty paper then layered it again on pearlescent papers from WorldWin

 I added the "leaves" by using Diamond Glaze and different embossing powders.  I love the Matte Look!

I made a fun bow with a mesh ribbon and fisnished it off  with a Cool2Cast heart that was colored with more Color Solutions. I also glazed the heart before I used the Color Solutions just to seal the heart and get a glossy look.

I then layered this again on specialty wood grain paper and finished the layer on the Brown Treausures cardstock!    I really love the way it came out.  As much as I love fall I am loving summer but these colors are just so pretty!  Don't forget to visit all the Dream Team and our guest blogger!  Happy Hopping!
