Dreampendous! Blog Hop and The Reuse/Recycle Challenge! PRIZES GALORE!

Yes, my dear friends, if you happened to stop by my blog on Thursday, you saw my first post for the amazing Dreamweaver/Stampendous! Collaboration! Well, it has been one HECK of an awesome week! If you have missed any of it, please check out the Stampendous! Impressions blog and the Dream it Up! blog to see some AMAZING STUFF!

AND...the Stampendous! challenge is running strong right now and we want to see you recycling, reusing, and basically, being creative with something that might normally get tossed! So, I bring you today's card!




Bird Tree Thank You


For this card I pulled out the Birds on a Branch stencil from Dreamweaver and embossed the pattern into kraft cardstock using my Grand Calibur machine. I gently pulled an embossing pad over the raised portion of the design and then coated it with Stampendous! Crystal Embossing Enamel to achieve that gorgeous glossy shimmer!




Birds on a Branch Thank You (detail 1)


The sentiment is stamped with the fabulous thank you from the Happy Messages Perfectly Clear Stamp Set by Stampendous! I created the butterfly by punching it from a piece of plastic packaging and then coating it with glossy accents covered in glitter! I {heart} it. Just say'n.
