Positively Pin-spirational!


Hello and welcome back!  It's Thursday and time for another Dreamweaver Stencils project! The Dream Team has a big day to day! Not only are we into week three of our Pinterest Inspired challenge, we are also playing with Ranger's Stickles Dry Glitter in the mix! Here's my Pin:



I love this picture as I'm crazy about the beach and I've always had fun building sandcastles.  Mine have never looked this good but I have fun trying!  Now here's my card based on this Pin:


Here's another angle to try to pick up more of the sparkle from the glitter!  


To create this card I first embossed my Dreamweaver Stencil, LL 3033 Sand Castle, with white embossing paste and set it aside to dry.  Once dry I colored the paste with my Copics and created the sand, sea and sky.  Next using Zip Dry, I added my Stickles Dry Fine Glitters, Eucalyptus, Waterfall and Tropical Tangerine.  I created my card base with Bazzill and my patterned paper is Bo Bunny's Barefoot & Bliss.  My sentiment is from Stampendous and their new line of digital downloads.  For this card I used Sandy Kiddos, printed it off, cut it to size and colored the background with a Copic.  My ribbon is from May Arts and adds a nice finishing touch.  We've had so much fun playing with jars of sparkly goodness, that we want to share the fun with two lucky crafters! 

  
Just visit everyone on the list below, and leave comments for everyone. Two winners* will be randomly selected and announced Thursday, July 4th...what a great day for a celebration! Each prize package includes a mix of five Ranger Stickles Dry Glitter, a mix of six Dreamweaver Stencils, and jar of Dreamweaver Translucent Paste, and a Palette Knife for spreading. If you want to add to the fun, play along with our Pinterest challenge and link your own creation to the linky tool on the Dream It Up! blog before July 1st for a chance to win this month's stencil prize. Here's the list of sparkly-Pinteresting players:


So that's a pretty awesome prize package!  I hope you'll play along and I'll see you again soon.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
Lea
