Dreamweaver Spells

It's Stampendous Dreamweaver Thursday and today we're putting a spell on you with some stencil magic.  If you look at my pumpkin, it's almost hard to believe it's a stencil!  Originally I was going to turn it into a jack-o-lantern but it was just so pretty I couldn't make myself do it!  So, here you have a pumpkin that's ready to turn into some yummy pumpkin pie.  At least it is in my mind!  I love the soft look of the chalk inks I've used.  Here's my card for today:

Here's what I used to create this card:

Green Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
We R Memory Keepers™ Autumn Splendor 6x6 Paper Pad
ColorBox® Fluid Chalk Inks - Autumn Pastels:  Olive Pastel, Creamy Brown, Burnt Sienna, Amber Clay
ColorBox® Fluid Chalk Inks - Primary Pastels:  Lime Pastel, Tangerine, Yellow Citrus
Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger®
Antique Linen Distress Ink by Ranger®
May Arts Ribbon®
Glue Dots® Adhesives Craft Dots
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Here's what I did to create this card:

Tape stencil onto white paper and ink stencil with sponges
Using a flat brush, fill in white stencil lines on pumpkin
Trim stenciled piece closely and add antique linen distress ink all around and then vintage photo on edges
Create an A2 card base with a tent fold from green cardstock
Trim patterned papers to fit as shown
Create a mat for stenciled image and edge with vintage photo distress ink
Adhere all layers as shown
Tie a double bow and attach to card front

Here's a list of my teammates that are playing along today, I hope you'll leave them some love:

Thanks for stopping by today!  I'll have another post for you tomorrow so come on back for another look.  On Saturday I'll have a fun Spellbinders post.  Yep, it's a busy week at Stampendous and I love it!  Hope you do, too!  Have a blessed day!
