ID: Wednesday Stamper July 09  - Dream - As You Dream

Created: July 23, 2009

Wednesday Stamper has a challenge for this week in July to use DREAM in your artwork.

Well Dream is one of my favorite words... I have 2 new punches from McGill, a 1.5" and a 1.75" Fancy Square Stacking Series. The 2 center ones (pink and pale blue where the Oriental character for Dream is) are the actual size of the punches. The 2 behind them are done with the same punch, but the paper was folded to get a larger square or rectangle. So with the 1.75" punch I can get a square a little bigger than 3.25" square and of course anything smaller than that to the size of the original punch.  But then you say - I don't like the fold lines... Well you can spritz your paper with a bit of water and iron it flat. Or you can scrunch it up several times to get a lot of wrinkles and then decorate it. I did both options decorated the larger one using a Perfect Medium stamp pad on the high points of the wrinkles and gold embossing it. On the next square I ironed it and ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Script embossing folder. All the squares were colored with Pan pastels in combinations of Ultramarine Blue & Magenta. Rubber stamped the Asian character with Versafine Majestic Blue and embossed with Sapphire embossing powder. The quote (from Quietfire Design), was stamped with the same stamp pad.

I rubber stamped the dark blue cardstock with various "Dream" words in the Majestic Blue and clear embossed them. (Roann Mathias, Just Jhones, Ma Vinci's Reliquary, & various alphabet stamp sets)

Used a Cuttlebug "Ornamental" die #37-1509 and some cardstock to punch out the negative portion of the top section of the heart shaped design, colored with the Pan Pastels and clear embossed it. Threaded my see thru ribbon through it and around the dark blue card. Mounted all this to the light blue main card.


You can see the detail on the blue square edged with blue & gold embossing powder.

you can see some of the shadow of the punched out negative heart.
