The joy of Dreamweaver Stencils!!!

Don't you ever get fed up of the same type of crafting all the time?? I know I do, so that's why I got my box of Dreamweaver stencils & embossing paste out of my cupboard......then out came the Distress Inks, Gilding flakes and glitter. I did get rather messy, but what a great time I had!!
Let me know what you think of my efforts please!!!

The above card was made using my favourite stencil - it's so versatile & can be used for just about any occassion, I think it's really good for mens' cards. I used copper embossing paste & black card stock to create this effect.

This card was made with the Noel stencil & Crafty Notions doublesided paper onto white card, then various colours of ultra fine glitter sprinkled over it, matted & layered onto red & gold & finally onto a black DL size card, which I stamped little snowflakes onto & clear embossed, then added the gems.

Another Christmas card done in the same way as above but with gilding flakes added as a border
and a stamped message at the bottom of the card.


  1. Gorgeous cards Ann! Sounds like you had fun with these! xx

  2. OMG Ann, all of these cards are just stunning!

    I have some dreamweaver stencils that should have the dust taken off them, umm, maybe soon! And I love gilding flakes too!

    Stunning work!
