Hallowthanksmas week 2

Can you tell that sometimes Dream Team's "Fearless Leader", Pam Hornschu, has a hard time deciding on monthly challenges? Since the team will be taking turns all month with the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween, and we are doing a Christmas collaboration with Stampendous and Core'dinations the 13th - 17th, the confusion should be understandable. Therefore...happy HallowThanksMas! As usual, we'd love for you to play along with the challenge and link your creations to the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog. Just in case you are wondering...NO, YOU DO NOT NEED TO POST SOMETHING WITH ALL THREE HOLIDAYS ON IT! However, you get bonus points for actually using Dreamweaver stencils and product on your creations! And bonus points might actually earn you an extra stencil as our monthly winner...just sayin'!

Here is my 'Fall' card or as we say this side of the pond 'Autumn' card.

Here's my creation for today:

I used the Dreamweaver stencil (LL3044 Maple leaf stencil) and drew around the outline with a micron pen and the ink pad I used was the Colourbox Farmhouse. The stencil was kept in place and the ink applied using the stippling and rouging techniques.

The pattern in each of the leaf areas was 'stentangled' using a Gold Metallic jelly roll pen. The final touch was a Stampendous Clear of a cobweb SSC1174 Halloween charm stamp set), and as always the various matts and layers to complete the card. 
This is what the rest of the team have been doing:

Thanks for stopping by



  1. I love the idea here! I have been using the pattern "hollibaugh" too and this one is so inspiring with the gold.

  2. Love the broken up leaf and the fine gold pattern. Great creation once again, Gill!

  3. I can't believe that is the maple leaf stencil. It looks awesome and the colors are perfect.
