Dreamweaver & Stampendous Hop

All this week the Stampendous DT and the Dreamweaver DT are hopping and sharing inspiration using both the Stampendous and Dreamweaver fabulous products. There are chances to win wonderful prizes for leaving comments!

The theme for the hop is Summer.  My first card uses a cool wave stencil which I used in two different cards:
I used the lovely waves stencil as a mask and spritzed over the stencil with a green and blue glimmer mist. I thought it looked like a tropical paradise.

I cut a hole and popped the sweet Hula Kiddo on a wobbler in the window.  I stamped the  sentiment  from Stampendous Thoughtful Wishes in a coordinating blue color and cut it to fit around the edge of the circle.  I accented with a a few tropical flowers and twine.

My second card shifts to more of a wintry icy cool color palette.




I used the Double glitter technique to add color to my stencil in the background. I mixed in the micro glitters from Stampendous.  Ice Blue Micro GlitterRoyal Ultra Fine Jewel Glitter and   Silver Micro Glitter.   I then decided I loved how it looked but it looked like a nice wintry storm.  I decided to add the new unicorn along with a sentiment for something rare and wonderful. I high lighted my unicorn with coordinating glitter.

  34. Two really pretty cards Sue. Love the wave stencil but have to admit I don't think I have anything like the amount of patience that would be needed to apply that glitter so precisely. Your results are gorgeous though!
