CHA Sneak Peek!

We're only days away from CHA where companies from all over the Craft Industry will be releasing New Designs and New Idea's!  But there isn't a company out there with a Product Designer like Lynell at Dreamweaver Stencils, or a Design Team that compares to the creative ladies on our Dream Team!

  I was SO excited by the new Stencil designs and couldn't wait to play with them, but when I saw what the other Design Team members came up with, I was humbled!  These ladies are UNBELIEVABLE!  So we're giving you guys a Sneak Peek every day this week, with each Design Team Member showcasing their favorites on their Blogs (See addresses to the Right).  We don't have a plan of what to show you, which means I'll be seeing what the other ladies choose as their favorites, for the first time along with you!  So be sure to check out the other blogs because I promise you, these examples are not to be missed! 

For my Sneak Peek today, I chose a Stencil that wasn't my "Most" favorite (I'm saving that for later in the week!), but one that would work perfectly for a Man's Card, and we ALL know how hard Men's Cards can be!  After making this first card though, I LOVE these mushrooms!  (Yup, those are Popsicle Sticks!  You can use your Stencils and Paste on anything!)

I think these "Fun Guys" have so much versatility!  For this sample I've Inked them and then used Translucent Embossing Paste, but I can see them Glitter painted, Embossed and coloured Psychedelically, Crackle Pasted, oh my gosh, there are so many options!  Lynell mentioned trying Zentangle on these guys, but my Zentangle needs some work!  I think I'll have to take lessons from some of the ladies on my Team...I hope one of them chooses one of their Zentangle Designs to show you...

Anyway, Don't forget to check in every day to see the new designs, and of course, we still have our Valentines Day challenge as well, as there's still a week left to enter your design!

Until tomorrow...
Stencil yourself Silly
Adhere with Abandon
and Paste 'til you Pop!


  1. Oh, how very clever! This would make a fine man's card. I am suspecting that these mushrooms are WAY more versatile than they first appear!

  2. Awwww...I love the popcycle stix Jessie! Such a great "guy" card too.

  3. very clever indeed! I love the shrooms!

  4. What a great idea! Love the mushrooms on the popsicle sticks!

  5. It's so true, cards for guys are the hardest to make. I was shocked to recognize the popsicle sticks, I haven't used those since Elementary school when we all needed to use the white glue at the same time. I agree with Laura, brilliant!

  6. Awesome!!! You are thinking outside the box!! You are amazing!!! Thanks for your genius creativity!!

  7. Jessie I love the idea of using popsicle sticks and the mushrooms are neice too.

  8. Never would have thought to use popsicle sticks but they add another layer of texture -- wonderful card!
