i am so excited about our first post today for Making a Mess Mondays! When Susana came to me with this new direction for the store and new products she is bringing in. i started my stamping journey with Tim Holtz and Technique Junkies so i LOVE getting messy in my studio. and these Dreamweaver products Susana brought in are JUST the thing i needed!!!
Dreamweaver makes incredible embossing pastes, brass stencil, and gorgeous shimmering mica powders. The possibilities are endless with these products - both in conjunction with each other AND alone. And i am VERY happy to say this is just the beginning of some messy fun at SCACD!!
For my first piece i used the checkerboard brass stencil, gold embossing paste and goldfinch Metal FX powder.
The stencil is a full sizes one, covers the front of an A2 card. I laid the stencil down on my paper and taped all four sides with removeable tape. I mixed some gold embossing paste with the Goldfinch powder and then smoothed it gently over the stencil like icing a cake. Then hold the stencil in place while gently removing the tape on three sides. then quickly and smoothly lift the stencil. My focal point is a cut from one of the new cricut lite cartridges.
my next card uses one of the Crafter's Workshop stencils Susana brought in recently - i was very pleased to discover that these work equally well with the Dreamweaver products!!
Here i used white glossy embossing paste. after it dried completely i rubbed lightly with a versamark pad and then dusted it with various colors of Metal FX powders. The result is stunning! i paired it with some Basic Grey Kioshi papers and a few buttons. Next i took one of the flowers from the Maya mini chipboard sets. i covered it in Versamark and then brushed it with Metal FX powders.
You can see a three part video on these new products full of ideas on how to use them all on Susana's site!
