Dreamweaver Thursday and Nathalie Kalbach Stamps

Although I am not technically playing along with the Nathalie Kalbach blog hop today, I was inspired to use one of her stamps on my Dreamweaver Thursday card.  Here it is:

SSC1190 Say It Today Perfectly Clear Stamps™
NKCRS05 Cling Kaffee Klatsch
SSH57 Jumbo Perfectly Clear™ Acrylic Handle
Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder
Blue Tinsel Embossing Powder
Micro Glitter in Black, Teal and China Blue
Jewel Royal Ultra Fine Glitter
Pearl White Ultra Fine Glitter
Versamark Ink
Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Double Sided Mounting Paper
Vegetable Based Soap
Scotch by 3M 1/2" Adhesive
Embossing Heat Tool
Paper Trimmer


  1. Cut the base 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" and fold in half on the side.
  2. Cut the Double Sided Mounting Paper to fit the Peacock Feather Stencil.  Leave it in a rectangle shape.
  3. Using the Acrylic Handle and Versamark Ink, stamp the Thank You from the Say It Today stamp set onto white paper.
  4. Pour Blue Tinsel Embossing Powder over the Thank You and shake off the excess.
  5. Emboss with the embossing tool.
  6. Using the Acrylic Handle and Versamark Ink, stamp the doily from the Kaffee Klatsch stamp set several times over green paper.
  7. Pour the Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder over the stamped images and shake off the excess.
  8. Heat with the embossing too until the powder turns white and puffs up.
  9. Rub the bar of soap on the back of the Peacock Feather Stencil.  You should have a light film of soap all across the back of the stencil when you are finished.
  10. Use the brush to gently remove the soap "crumbles" off the back of the stencil.
  11. Remove the backing from one side of the mounting paper, revealing the adhesive.
  12. Place the stencil, soap side down, on the adhesive side of the paper.
  13. Pinch some of the black glitter into the "eye" of the peacock feather.
  14. Continue to pinch glitter colors into the wells of the feather stencil.
  15. When all of the stencil wells appear to be covered, rub it in a little with your finger.
  16. Brush off any excess glitter.
  17. Place the project upside down on a hard, flat surface.
  18. Peel a little of the mounting paper from the a corner of the stencil.
  19. Using this piece, slowly remove all of the mounting paper from the Peacock Feather Stencil, while leaving the stencil flat.
  20. Pour the White Pearl Glitter over the top of the feather, brushing off the excess.
  21. Remove the backing from the project and attach it to white card stock.
  22. Use scissors to trim the feather and the Thank You words close to the images.
  23. Assemble the card.
