Dreamweaver All In One

Fran Seiford, Owner and Founder of Stampendous, understands that holiday card making can be time consuming. Plus, it’s not always easy to find images that go together to make the perfect card. Enter the All in Ones from Stampendous. These darling stamps are the perfect size to make a whole card. Easy shapes to cut with scissors or simply stamp on a colored background, these stamps have a focal image, a background, a frame, and a phrase for the holidays. Just stamp it, sign it, mail it. OR get as creative as you like by combining with other stamps and embellishments!
Here is what I did by combining one of these stamps with a Dreamweaver Stencil and a die cut.
Removable Tape
Blue Card Stock
White Card Stock
Prismacolor Pencils in the following colors:  White, Cool Grey 10%, Cool Grey 20%, Cool Gray 30%, Cool Grey 50%, Cool Grey 70%, Cool Grey 90%, Metallic Silver, Periwinkle, Indigo Blue, Dark Green, Olive Green, Crimson Red and Terra Cotta
Scotch 3M Adhesive
Foam Squares

1.  Use the removable tape to adhere the stencil to the blue card stock.
2.  Remove the embossing paste with the palette knife and place on the paste spreader.
3.  Put the paste spreader on the top of the project and pull the paste down over the stencil, filling in all the gaps.  Treat the spreader as if it were a squeegee, keeping contact with the stencil all the way down.
4.  Remove the stencil, sprinkle glitter on the paste and then let it dry.
5.  Stamp the image on the white card stock with Memento Ink.
6.  Color the image with Prismacolor colored pencils.
7.  Die cut the holly leaves.
8.  Cut out the stamped image.
9.  Assemble the card, using foam squares to pop up the main image.
