Hopping the day away...

...it's Friday Hop Day!  Woohoo!



It's fun in the sun time again with another collaboration between Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils! We'll be playing together all of this week, with a fabulous hop on Friday, August 2nd, featuring a slew of amazing talent from both teams, and of course...prizes!!!

Two prize packages will be given away for the comments left on posts Monday-Thursday, July 29th - August 1st, and one prize will be given away for comments left on the hop day, Friday, August 2nd. Winners will be selected randomly and announced Thursday, August 8th. (Note: USA addresses only, please, due to shipping costs.) Here's what you could win:

Stampendous Surfer and Sandcastle Kiddos • Dreamweaver Hot Air Balloon, Ice Cream Cones, Summer, Mosaic Swirls, Bird Words, and Sandcastle stencils


 Here's what I created:



I love summertime weddings!  I decided to go for a more simple yet (hopefully) elegant look today!  I used Dreamweaver Stencil LL3034 Your Wedding and pasted it with matte black embossing paste.  Once dry I cut it out with a Spellbinder die and set it aside.  I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to the size I wanted and using Stampendous Zinnia stamp, I stamped it randomly on the cs with my Boss Gloss ink.  Next I heat embossed it with Kaleidoscope Embossing Powder and set it aside.  I used my VersaMark marker to highlight just part of the flourishes on my stenciled piece, then added Kaleidoscop EP on it and quickly heated it being careful not to bubble my paste.  Once that was done I created my card base from black cardstock, added a bit of May Arts silk ribbon to my white panel and adhered the two.  Using some pop dots, I attached my sentiment and, voila!, a simple card for that special couple getting married!  I added the two close-up photos so you can, hopefully, see the sparkle!  This is so pretty in real life and the pictures never seem to capture the true beauty of the sparkle!

Now, hop on over to the next in line. Don't forget to leave some love for a chance to win, and just 'cuz it's nice!


Thanks so much for joining those of us at Stampendous and Dreamweaver for this week long collaboration.  I hope you've enjoyed it and been inspired along the way. I appreciate all the wonderful comments you've left this past week, it's heartwarming to read them and know you've enjoyed my work.   I'll have more projects for you soon so be sure to check back in next week.  See you soon!

Hugs,
Lea
