Christmas in August with Dreamweaver Stencils

I'm ready to beat this heat with this month's Christmas in August Challenge at Dreamweaver Stencils!  PLUS we have a bunch of brand new stencils to share with you!

My card today uses the new Heart Ornament Stencil and some non-traditional colors.  I pasted the whole stencil with Pearlescent Paste and when that was dry I added color with my new Tim Holtz Summer LE distress ink pads.  I added some Clear EP, heated and volia! Shiny happy ornaments!

Want to get into the holiday spirit a little early?  Link your own Christmas in August creations to the Dream It Up! blog mr. linky, or email pics of your creations to, for an opportunity to win this wonderful newly released Heart Ornaments:

Don't you just love this new design? There are several newly released stencils and products from CHA last month, which you can view for yourself HERE. During the week of August 20th - 25th, the Dream Team will be posting all week with a hop on Saturday to top it all...featuring all of these new fabulous collaboration with the Woodware UK team. Just a little may want to buy all of these new designs now, so you are ready and waiting for the inspiration that will come your way that week! Meanwhile, check out what the rest of the team has been creating this week:


  1. Woweee.....this is gorgeous! Wish I had time to pop by and take a class from you on this technique. heated it? Did that make the heart round out?

  2. I think the non-traditional colors are soooo much fun! I'm wondering about the hearts, too . . . are they really dimensional or is that a visual effect from the embossing powder?

  3. Love the colors! What a sweet card! I love those new Distress colors too!

  4. The bows are great on the ornaments! The pearly colors are beautiful.

  5. Love your retro colored ornaments!
