Fall Blessings

I don't know about you, but I'm just done with hot weather!  I am so tired of always mopping my face with a towel ha ha!  You know what I mean though... the kind of being hot all the time and when you try to stand up, you stick to your chair LOL!  The sad thing is that they say that this has been the coolest summer we've had in a very long time - blech...  I think that God did it for me though - He knew that I'd be having my own heat wave regardless of the temperature outside.  Thank you, LORD!

This is a very different kind of card from me today.  I've been experimenting with different products lately and decided to try the Viva Decor 3D Glitter Gel.  This is some cool stuff!  It's very easy (but messy) to work with.  Believe me, you won't mind the mess cuz it's so much FUN!  I've used the Leaf Background stencil from Dreamweaver and Bronze 3D Glitter Gel from Viva to create the glittery background panel.  When it dried, I spritzed Smooch over the entire piece and wiped away the excess on the stenciled areas.

This is my Try It Out *T* card.  We were asked to use a Dreamweaver or Crafters Workshop stencil on our project along with Dreamweaver micas, paste, clay or Viva Decor Products.  This one really challenged me...  I broke out from my color palette comfort zone (again) and went with a Fall theme.

Leaves and sentiment stamps are from a new set I picked up from Susana at SCACD - Our Craft Lounge, Shades of Fall.  I was very surprised to see the quality of this clear stamp set.  It comes on a very sturdy mounting piece which is three hole punched to keep in a binder.  It also shows (in color!) the stamps in the set, so you don't have to figure out what the stamps look like!  That's so important with clear stamps.  Very very nice!!!  Susana has other sets from Our Craft Lounge Here.  Take a peek... you won't be disappointed!

The stencil works really well.  Here's a close up.  You can see that the 3D Glitter Gel only went where it was supposed to : )  It is raised and very textured!  There are lots of Dreamweaver stencils to choose from Here.  They are sturdy and excellent quality!  I have one with a teapot and teacup that I'm itching to use soon!  Susana has a number of videos for you to watch to get you started.  Go take a peek : )

If you like this color scheme, you'll want to check back here tomorrow.  I have one more up my sleeve using the scrolls I showed you how to create on Monday!  Don't forget to enter My Candy... ends August 31!!!

Have a fabulous day!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
