Dreamweaver and Ranger Blog Hop!


 
The Dream Team has a big day today! Not only are we into week three of our Pinterest Inspired challenge, we are also playing with Ranger's Stickles Dry Glitter in the mix! We've had so much fun playing with jars of sparkly goodness, that we want to share the fun with two lucky crafters! Check out how to win after the post.

 This is my entry this week.  I was so inspired by the beautiful Dry Stickles, that I completely forgot to chose a Pinterest inspiration.  I hope you forgive me!
My camera refused to photograph the gorgeous Purple Dry Stickle, so I hope this closeup does it a little more justice.
I have decided to include a brief tutorial.
MATERIALS:
Heat Gun
Scissors
White Liquid Glue
White Card Stock
Thin Chipboard
Adhesive
Paper from DCWV Once Upon a Time Mat Stack

DIRECTIONS
1)  Use Removable Tape, Palette Knife and the Blue Glossy Paste to emboss the peacock stencil onto white card stock and let dry.
2)  Mount the embossed peacock onto the chipboard and cut around the image.
3)  When the peacock is dry, use the white glue to adhere the Dry Stickles onto the image.  Use the Gold, Cinnamon, True Blue and Purple.

4)  Soap the back of the stencil.
5)  Brush any crumbles of soap off of the stencil with the stencil brush.
6)  Adhere the stencil, soap side down, onto the adhesive paper.
7)  Sprinkle the True Blue Dry Stickles onto the border of the adhesive paper.
 8)  Sprinkle the Eucalyptus Dry Stickles onto the leafy area and rub in.  Ignore the peacock area.

 9)  Flip the project over and carefully peel the paper off of the stencil.  The stencil should remain on a hard, flat surface during this process.
 10)  Place the peacock into position on the adhesive.
 11)  Pour the Clear Embossing Powder around the outside of the peacock and rub in.

 12)  Use the heat gun to heat the embossing powder.  Do not get too close to the glitter or it could burn.
13)  Assemble the card, and you are done!

  42. I have ALWAYS loved this stencil and seen so many samples with it. This one is really awesome. Funny, but until I clicked on your link to the Ranger Dry Stickles, I thought this was a glitter glue. Now I understand your directions. Very lovely creation.
