September week 2

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 which are coming soon.

I don't know about you but I have so many cards to make I have to make cards quickly.  I think this is one of the more easy and quick ones that i have done. So here is my creation:-

This is what you will need:-
Dreamweaver Stocking dies DG692
Dreamweaver Quatrefoil Stencil LX7027
White card
Red Card Silver mirri card
White pearl card
Glossy white paste
Stampendous crystal glitter
A sentiment stamp of your choice I used  Woodware Clear Magic Stamp set FRS175

And this is what you do:-

1 Take a piece of white card and cover with a thin layer of white Glossy Paste, to give texture I simply used my palette knife to dab over the top of the paste to achieve slight 'peaks' and dimension.  I then scattered a good layer of Stampendous crystal glitter over this removed the excess and put this back in the pot.  The glossy, glitter piece was put to one side to dry completely.

2 Take a piece of red card and use the Quatrefoil stencil to emboss I used my Big Shot to do this. To add a little bit of shading or definition to the red embossed card I used a dark pink ink pad and the Strie technique

3 Take the large stocking die and cut out the bottom part  of the stocking from the red embossed card, and once the white glitter card is dry cut out the top part of the stocking from this.

4 Using a matt of white pearl card I placed the stocking onto this and made sure that I overlapped the top of the stocking with the bottom.

5 The last couple of steps were to put crystal self adhesive gems on to the embossed area of the stocking and to stamp the sentiment at the bottom.

There is my card quick and simple. 

The rest of the team have been busy working on more lovely projects, here is the list.  Enjoy.

Of course, we have our monthly challenge for you to play along, so post your own holiday creations, and use the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog, for a chance to win the prize at the end of the month.
