Dreamweaver Double Days

This week, the Stampendous theme is Dreamweaver Doubles.  We are supposed to use one stencil two ways or two stencils one way.
 I can tell how much I adore a stencil by the number of different ways I have used it.   There are certain stencils that I just LOVE. The LL 3004 Falling Leaves stencil is definitely versatile.  Let me show it to you not one, but five ways:

This one was very easy.  I simply ran the stencil through my Cuttlebug with the Stamping Details Rubber Embossing Mat.  Then, with the stencil still on, I used my stencil brush and pigment inks to add color.

This one used the Double Glitter Technique.

 This one was created with the Molten Magic Technique.  I used Gold Metallic Embossing Paste, dropped some Metallic FX mica powders in it while the paste was very wet, and then heated the whole thing with my embossing heat gun until it bubbled up and dried.

 This was simply Red Glossy Embossing Paste with some embossing powders through in while the paste was still wet.  You could use any color embossing paste for this one, as long as it was glossy.  The glossy is tackier.

This was teal coated aluminum run through my Cuttlebug with the Stamping Details Mat.  Then, I added some alcohol inks with a cotton swab on the leaves.  Finally, I sanded it.

Here are the other Double Days posts for the day:


  1. Gorgeous designs! Love how just an added bit of twine or yarn is all this design needs.

  2. Awesome representation of the variety of techniques done with just one stencil!

  3. WOW! You really got about every technique in one post. They are all so pretty.

  4. These are all awesome but my favorite is the Molten Magic! Or, maybe, the double glitter. No, wait, the aluminum one. Dang it! I love them ALL!!! So simple yet elegant too! TFS!
