A Raven Halloween

 
blog+badge.jpg (180×252)
 
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 (there will be prizes!!), 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's how my card was made;
1.  Stencil LJ901 Mosaic Swirls on an orange card with purple ink.
2.  Stamp Crow Craw from Stampendous in black at the bottom.
3.  Stencil LJ816 Spider Web on black paper with white ink.  Tear the bottom and glue to the top of card.
4.  Emboss corners of card with Aged Wine Embossing Enamel from Stampendous.
5.  Stamp Halloween Wish from Stampendous on cream paper in black, emboss edges as above and layer onto a purple panel.
6.  Glue a plastic spider to the corner, apply Dot Sparklers from Stampendous and mount to card.

Here's what I'm showing off today:


For today's card I made a nontraditional Christmas card using;
1.Dreamweaver Stencils new FJ858 Greetings Embossing Folder that I used as the base of the card.  To get the blue color I rubbed Sky Blue Brilliance from Tsukineko over the the indented side of the folder (not the raised), then embossed using Core'dinations white cardstock.
2.  I then stamped the butterfly from Stampendous' Jumbo Butterfly Trio set with Versamark on Core'dinations vellum and embossed the Shabby White Embossing Enamel
3.  Next the same butterfly was stamped on Glitter Silk paper from Core'dinations with Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink from Tsukineko and embossed with clear powder.
4.  Both were cut out using the new Butterflies Die Cut Set from Stampendous.  When using the die it cuts off the antennas, so for the vellum piece I cut around the antennas then placed the die on the butterfly with the antennas on top of the die so they wouldn't be cut.  The vellum wings were bent, glued to the sparkle paper and blue self adhesive pearls were added.
 
5.  The letters and leaves were then die cut using Dreamweaver Stencils new Dual Alphabet Cutting Dies DD005 and DD003 Leafy Branch from Core'dinations Glitter Silk paper.
6.  The sentiment from the Holiday Words Perfectly Clear Set using Versamark ink and emboss with  Copper Tinsel Embossing Powder, layer onto gold paper.

Made this at the last minute using Stampendous stamps Clear Set SSC1182, Dreamweaver Stencils new Embossing Folder FG675 Pine Cones and Core'dinations Chalk Core sandable paper.

Here's how my card was made.

Enter If You Dare

 
Today I had a little time on my hands so I thought I would play along with a couple of challenges, The Paper Players challenge #215 which is a sketch challenge and Cards In Envy where you need to use twine and cards must be able to fit into an envelope, so nothing hanging off or too lumpy.

All stamps are by Stampendous and I used two sets, the Halloween Charms Perfectly Clear Stamp Set and Tricky Words Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.  The clear sets were perfect to use on this card since I punched out the shapes first then stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  The sentiment was embossed with Twilight Embossing Powder from Stampendous, it's super pretty in person, black with glitter so it shimmers!
