New Stencils, New Stamps, New Fun!

What a fun week we’ve been having on the Stampendous Design Team with Imagine Crafts AND new product release.   For my card today, I’ve used my very favorite Dreamweaver stencil ever!  I love this stencil and it’s really cool that it has a matching die, I know you’re going to want, no, NEED, them both!  

Here’s what I’ve used to create this card:

Blue Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Look at all the yummy texture!!

Here’s what I did to create this card:

Using a stipple brush, cover a large section of the white paper with blue ink for sky.
Tape stencil to paper and apply gray ink.
Using a small flat paint brush, add espresso ink along edges to add some visual depth.
Mix blue, orange, green and yellow Amplify! inks to get two shades of green.
Stipple on Amplify! mixes for dark and light sections of leaves, heat to puff.
Paint on Amplify! mixes for grass, heat to puff.
Add little dots of blue Amplify! and heat for flowers
Create card base with a tent fold and attach card front.
(Here’s where I decided I wanted the green mixture to go all the way to the bottom of the card, so, I added more of the mix and heated it.)
Stamp sentiment with blue ink.

Here’s a list of my teammates that are playing along today:
