Ring in the New Year!

Well this week has got away from me with the holidays AND this is the first time in many years I'm celebrating Christmas where I work and not taking the whole week off. So I'm a bit discombobulated! I'll have time to post a couple of things this weekend. Until then Hope your Christmas was Merry and Your New Year Bright!!

See you soon...............

It's Dream Scheme Thursday

Hello everyone,
I'm so happy to have my computer back!! I know that I told you I'd be posting my missed weeks, well........in picking up my work area so the computer guy could get to my computer, I've miss placed a few things. I will find them and get them on the blog (hopefully soon!). In the meantime here is this weeks challenge.

We are doing Red and Gold. I did a Red and Gold a couple of weeks ago, so this one had me a bit stumped until I remembered this stencil

I made the card pretty simple since there's a lot going on in the image.

First paste the image with Gold paste on red print paper. Let dry. On one side of wording and line above and below wording, shadow with black permanent pen fine point. Layer on gold striped paper then again on the print paper.
Finally, add Christmas glitter glue (red and gold mix) to the holly berries. Quick and easy!!
Come back next week for more stenciling ideas.
Until then I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!!

It's the 8th again!!

Hello everyone,
I finally have my computer back....YAHOO!!!
So I'll be posting each day to catch up. This was the post from the 8th. See you Monday....

This week in celebration of getting the Christmas Tree up AND decorated, I decided to share a card I made for the submission for the DreamTeam 2012. I really had fun doing it and it ended up being easier than I thought.

First I pasted three images in silver paste on green paper, let dry.
Rough cut each one out. Fold two in half and crease. Fold the third with a loose or soft crease. Attach the two that you have made a hard crease in, to the back of the one with the soft crease.
a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-9c0T35uMwhE/TuBeuh0L9vI/AAAAAAAAAUA/_II2lr2H3o0/s1600/dreamweaver%2Bchallenges%2B144.jpg">
Attach the three trees to the front of a layered card.

Add glitter glue to highlight areas on the center tree.
Easy!! I shouldn't have said that out loud, my mom has put in her order for next years Christmas cards. I will definitely be starting this project in March!!

I'll be visiting my fellow Dreamteamers tomorrow evening to see what fun things they have come up with. I hope you do the same. Until next week.............
keep creating!

Dream Scheme December!!

Happy December! This weeks challenge is Silver and Turquoise. I had this idea pop into my head. Didn't turn out too bad. Especially since several of the things that pop into my head don't come out of my hands right!

I used the Skates LL3016

I pasted them with Silver stencil paste. Then sprinkled Turquoise glitter over them. I didn't do it evenly because I wanted some of the silver paste to show through. I then used silver glitter glue to enhance the blades.
Unfortunately the lighting wasn't the best to capture the colors as well as I would have liked. But, I'm happy with my results!

Please make sure to visit the rest of the design teams blogs. Make sure to leave comments unlike me sometimes. I always visit but sometimes neglect to leave a comment. Don't do as I do, please do as I suggest because I know they love reading the comments as much as I do!!

Till next week......keep on stenciling!
