Hello friends. I’m back today with another Christmas card using new dies and stencils from Dreamweaver Stencils.
It seems that summer flew by in a flash. With cooler than normal temperatures for much of our summer, the normally sweltering heat with overwhelming humidity was held at bay for most of the summer; making it feel more like perpetual spring, rather than summer. I’m not complaining about the beautiful weather, but why did it have to go by so quickly?
Most of you can see from the decorations in the store isles and a good majority of craft blog posts, pins and tweets, that crafting for the holidays is in full swing. This entire month of September the Dream Team is featuring all the new goodies Dreamweavers 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.
Once my paste was dry, I die cut the embossed ornaments out using the Nested Ornaments Die set, new from Dreamweaver Stencils. I also die cut the ornament tops using gold cardstock and glued those into place.
For my NOEL die cuts, I used the same gold cardstock and the new Dual Alphabet Dies and glued each letter onto the ornament before attaching some metallic twine to each ornament top.
That’s it for me today, but there is more fun, so please read on.
Of course, we have our monthly challenge for you to play along, so post your own holiday creations, and use the Inlinkz tool (seen at the bottom of this post or on the Dream It Up! blog) for a chance to win the prize at the end of the month. We also have our fabulous Guest Designer for the month of September, Wendy Price! Here's the list of our "A" Team with their links for the week:
