Dreamweaver-Quietfire Awesome In Autumn Final Day!

Welcome!  Thank you for joining us for our Final Day.

 
Have you enjoyed Awesome in Autumn? This week we have partnered with the Dreamweaver Design Team and were so excited to play with their innovative stencils, pastes and glitters!  Don't forget to leave your comments on each blog for an opportunity to win one of two wonderful prize packages.


Here's what I've created for today's post:

 
I know, I know!  I have a love affair with this tree! But I had a different plan this time. I wanted the look of vellum.  Well it didn't take long to find that when you apply embossing paste to vellum, it looks like it's taking a bath.  It gets all puckered up.  So, I scratched my head for a while, then for some reason I remembered I still had some Drafting Mylar (now available on the site, see links below) left over from the time I was a vendor for the international calligraphy conference. Denis Brown had wanted it for his class, so I got it in and had some left. Untouched until last week!  And it worked.  I could emboss, the paste dried and there was no puckering.  I fooled around with a few things and I really need to explore the Mylar more.  However, this is what I did for this card.


 
 
  1. Use Translucent Embossing Paste with the Tree of Life stencil on a piece of 8x8" Drafting Mylar. Remove the stencil and allow the paste to dry for about 20 minutes.  Use Dreamweaver Metallic FX to gently dust the embossing paste with a soft brush (that doesn't shed....). I used Amber Glow and Eye of the Tiger.  Allow the paste to dry, then you can literally wash the excess powder off in the sink!
  2. Use Spellbinders Elegant Labels Four to diecut Neenah 80lb Cardstock with "window".  Use the "window" die to cut a piece of off-white cardstock.  Trim the off-white to 1/8" larger than the Elegant Label Four.  Use glue dots to mat the white die cut to the off-white cardstock.  Trim the Drafting Mylar so that the tree is positioned in the middle of the "window" and use Glue Dots to adhere the Mylar to the back of the matted pieces.
  3. Use VersaMagic Red Brick to stamp The Love We Give Away on a cardblank made from Neenah 110lb Solar White Cardstock.  "Float" the matted window over the quotation using Pop Dots.
All your stenciling needs and wants can be found at Stencil With Style!
 
Thanks for having a look!

  20. I feel silly saying this-- but your card gave me chills, Suzanne. I love the stylized tree motif in almost any format (stencil, stamp, die cut...) but your technique brings it to life. Paired with your lovely stamp, I am in awe. No idea how to use embossing paste, but might have to learn!
    Best Wishes,
    Mary
