Stampendous and Dreamweaver fun and blog hop

Hello there and welcome to our big inspirational finale! Are you enjoying our Dreamy Stampendoulicious inspiration week so far? 

Personally, I'm lovin' it! I've been drooling over all the beautiful projects prepared by both teams - be sure to check them all out, if you haven't yet. 

Just hop over to the Stampendous blog and follow the links for each day. And if you leave some love along the way you'll get a chance to win some great prizes (NB. you need a US shipping address to be able to win).

What could you win? Two prize packages will be given away for the comments left on posts Monday-Thursday, July 29th - August 1st, and one prize will be given away for comments left on the hop day, Friday, August 2nd (today - YAY!). Winners will be selected randomly and announced Thursday, August 8th. 

Prize package includes: Stampendous Surfer and Sandcastle Kiddos, Dreamweaver Hot Air Balloon, Ice Cream Cones, Summer, Mosaic Swirls, Bird Words, and Sandcastle stencils.

So here's what I prepared for our Big Blog Hop Finale - a juicy Summer sizzler :). 

And here are the steps. To have a closer look at the supplies I used, just click on the product icons at the bottom of the post.

1. Ink up a tag with your chosen distress inks using wrinkle free distress technique.

2. Ink up the Wine Labels background stamp with Picket Fence (white) Distress Stain. 

3. Stamp directly onto the tag. 

4. Spread Translucent Embossing Paste over the 'Summer' stencil. 

5. Sprinkle the Micro Glitters over the wet paste. Carefully remove the stencil and allow to dry. Repeat the stencilling process in other areas of the tag.

6. Outline the glittered letters with a black pen.

7. Stamp the Grape Label onto patterned paper. Colour with your favourite medium (I used Distress Markers). Trim the image and distress the edges.

8. Embellish the corners using encrusted jewel technique and your favourite Encrusted Jewel Kit. I used the lush Purple one :). Add various embellishments, die cuts (I'm using Marianne's Design butterfly die) and flowers to complete your project.

Now, hold on tight as we've got quite a ride lined up for you! Grab yourself a cuppa, make yourself comfy and enjoy the hop! :)

I love several things about your card. I love the way you outlined the word "summer" after it was embossed, I love the 3-D effect of your butterfly, and I love the grapes stamped on decorator paper. Colors are lovely too. Wonderful creation!
