Good morning!  I am back from a long weekend of fabulous classes from some of the best teachers/designers in the industry and I have photos to share another day.  But today being the first Thursday of the month means a new challenge unfolds at DWS!  This month our challenge at Dreamweaver Stencils is about everything magical and mystical.

I have created a simple Halloween card for you combing a relatively new stencil destined to become a classic and its matching new die.  I first pasted the Leafless Tree stencil with Matte Black Embossing Paste.  While that was drying I cut the matching Leafless Tree die with patterned paper.

After the paste is totally dry I adhered the tree diecut over the top and slightly off set which gives a wonderful shadow effect.

I also added a quick sentiment by cutting out a piece of coordinating paper.  Both papers are from We R Memory Keepers.

Be sure to see what our other designers on Team A (and our special October guest Alison) have created for you this week:


  1. Great card Cyndi! The perfect quick and easy card when you need to make several and boo-tiful too!

  2. I really like how you've layered the tree. The pattern on your top layer is cute! Great job!

  3. Love the offset to create a feeling of a 'scary' tree for this time of year!!!

  4. For some reason, that paper makes the tree seem spookier! Looking forward to seeing pics from your classes!

  5. Interesting what you did with it!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment! Every comment makes me smile :)
