Dreamweaver Stencils March Challenge

Still keeping it {Spring} Clean and Simple with Dreamweaver Stencils this week!  Today I am sharing 3 of the 4 cards for my Beginning Paste class next week.  (See the Classes page at the top of my blog) All are pretty CAS so I thought I'd share them all :)

First up is my fav for this class. using Birdcage stencil and SIlver embossing paste.  The sentiment is from an older retired trio that one of my stores still has in stock.  This card will show you how to power paste several cards at once without cleaning in between!

Isn't that cage just gorgeous in silver?  My papers are from Basic Grey's Sweet Threads collection and the frame is cut with new Nesting Oval Doily from QuicKutz for Lifestyle Crafts.

Next is a card using my favorite kitty...Retro Sitting Cat and also Kitty words, 2 new stencils from the January release at Dreamweaver.  I used Matte black embossing paste and Back glitter from Stampendous! Papers feature new Konichiwa line from Basic Grey.


And lastly for today is my mushroom card, using new Mushroom stencil, white glossy paste, and alcohol inks.  Dreamweaver carries a wonderful line of Alcohol inks, but my stores asked me to use Copic refills for the class instead.  Ink is painted onto dried paste with precision tip Q-tips.

Papers are more Sweet Threads from Basic Grey, and sentiment is from Agapanthus by Stampendous!

One last look:

OK! So we know you want to play along this month for a chance to win one of these stencils shown below!  You have until the end of March to play, and you can do so as many times as you'd like.  Doesn't even have to use a DW stencil, but we sure love to see them!

Be sure to stop by the rest of the DT blogs too!
