Most wonderful time of the year week4

Where did the summer go? Kids are back in school, with all the insanity that goes with it, vacations are a not-so-distant memory, and it is once again time to get busy with the important things in life...crafting for the holidays! Yay! All of September the Dream Team will be featuring all the new goodies we have for the "Most wonderful time of the year", the fall and winter holiday season. New stencil designs, new dies, and...brand new embossing folders featuring some of our top-selling designs, all to be found on-line through the Stencil with Style web-site, or your local papercrafting store.

I know I keep saying this is my favourite and thats my favourite but this weeks post has a few favourites.  The first is one of the new Dreamweaver Stencils the Tall Poinsettia (this will be one of my all time favourites) and the other things are the Molten Magic Technique using the stencil and lastly the use of patterned paper and cutting into it so that my design is tucked into the paper.

Here's my creation for this week:

This is what you will need:-
Dreamweaver Stencil LL3046 Tall poinsettia
Silver Embossing Paste
White card
Burgundy card
Patterned paper
Dreamweaver Metallic FX powders :- Forestry, Rose Berry, Plum Royale,Amber Gold, Kiwi.
Stencil brush
Palette knife
Low Tack Tape
Silver Mirri board
Heat Gun
Cleaning products for stencil

And this is how I created the card:

1 Take the Stencil and attached to a piece of white card on all 4 sides apply the silver paste, and remove stencil place in water for cleaning.  Take the Dreamweaver Metallic FX powders and using a stencil brush tap the powders over the paste design in the areas you want coloured.

2 Using a heat gun start to heat the design. I always give a quick blast of heat to the back of the card before concentrating on the front.  As the paste is heated it starts to blister and bubble.  If large bubble appear I tend to burst them so the there is no danger of them cracking and flaking off when the design is finished.

3 Cut all the matts and layers and with the layer of patterned paper cut around the design so that the stenciled design will tuck in. Put your card together.

4 You can add to the card by using ribbon around the spine.  I decided that I wanted mine to be clean and simple.

That is the card done, hope you like it, this is what the rest of the team have been creating this week.  Enjoy :
