Creativity with IMAGINE Crafts

Today I'll be sharing two different projects with you. The first is my project for the IMAGINE Crafts and Dreamweaver Stencils Blog Hop. The second project I'm presenting today is the Altered Pages' Featured Artist submission. I hope that you enjoy both of these projects that I've created! 


 This week IMAGINE Crafts and Dreamweaver Stencils are featuring a Blog Hop showcasing our fabulous products and providing some inspiration for you to get creative! And be sure to leave your comments on each artist's post that you visit for your chance to win a fabulous prize that includes IMAGINE Crafts and Dreamweaver products. Contest closes at 11:59pm PST on Sunday, June15th.


So easy to make and a uniquely cut front makes for a beautiful card. 

Let's go Shopping:
Dreamweaver Stencils: Thank You & Amsterdam Flourish
Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko:  Kaleidacolor Denim; Memento Luxe Wedding White
Modeling paste
Metallic White Twine
Faux Pearls
1/2 inch Circle punch
Foam Adhesive
Craftwell Ebosser

1)  Cut Kraft card stock 4.25 x 7.25 inches. Score at 5.50 inches.
2)  On white card stock, brayer on the Denim Kaleidacolor. Cut a panel measuring 4.25 x 4.50. Emboss Flourish and ink with Wedding White while stencil is still in place. Attach to card front, then trim around the Flourish.
3)  Use Modeling Paste on Thank You stencil over a small section of the left over Kaleidacolor Denim. Let dry. Trim fishtails on ends and attach to card with foam adhesive.
4)  Punch half circles near top of card as shown, add twine. Embellish with faux pearls as desired.

I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at your cards Penny! Cutting out the flourish edge is a great design trick! I really love the dragonfly card with the pocket of flowers tucked in. It's really tough to decide which one I like more as they are both stunning.
