Thank Ewe!

This is a bittersweet post today for Dreamweaver Stencils, it's my last post with the Dream Team under the skillful guidance of Lynell, founder of Dreamweaver Stencils.  If you've been under a rock somewhere and haven't heard, Stampendous Stamps has purchased Dreamweaver Stencils.  Since I'm also on the Stampendous Design Team, I'm lucky enough to get to continue creating with my very favorite stencils, now combined with my very favorite stamps.  I want to "thank ewe," Lynell, for inviting me to become a part of your Dream Team!  It was a privilege and an honor to serve under you for the past two years. Lynell, I wish you and Wayne the best always and I'm sure I'll see you again!  I do hope you enjoy your new-found freedom!

In honor of our last post for the Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Team, I would like to share my first card I posted as part of this wonderful group of gals.  Details can be found here!

And here's my final post for Dreamweaver Stencils as part of the Dream Team:

Here's what I used to create this card:

Dreamweaver Stencils© LL3040 Open Sheep Stencil
Dreamweaver Stencils© DL3040 Open Sheep Die Set
Dreamweaver Stencils© Regular Embossing Paste
Plaid® Baby Pink Acrylic Paint
DecoArt® Americana® Coral Blush Acrylic Paint
Basic Grey® Olivia Paper Pad
Tim Holtz® Distress Ink in Iced Spruce
Coral Cream Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Guacamole Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
May Arts Ribbon®
Zva Creative Crystals®
Beacon Adhesive

Here's what I did to create this card:

Trim a piece of patterned paper and tape reverse side of stencil to paper
Mix paints with paste until you have desired color and paste emboss sheep
Run die cuts through die machine with two different patterned papers
Once paste has dried, attach die cut pieces to paste and pattern paper
Create horizontal A2 card base with a tent fold from green paper
Trim a piece of coral cardstock as a mat for patterned paper and adhere the two
Create a double bow from ribbon and attach tails around back side and adhere entire piece to card base
Add distress ink around edges of sheep
Adhere two small black crystals for eyes

When you have a shower, you need thank you cards to send to your guests that gave you a present.  For a baby shower, there's not much that's sweeter than this adorable lamb.  I think it's perfect!  Plus, I really wanted to thank Lynell for the past two years and the opportunity she gave me to create with her wonderful products.  Here's the rest of the team playing along with our farewell to Lynell:

Thanks for stopping by today.  I appreciate your visits and I always love to read comments you're sweet enough to leave.  Have a wonderful day and I'll see you again soon!
