"It's beginning to look a LOT like Christmas,
Everywhere I go..."

So, now that I've got that song stuck in your head for the day, let's see what the Stampendendous Design Team is sharing this week. Our weekly theme has been "The Big Fat Man with the Long White Beard!". Yup, he's checking to see who's been naughty and nice so you better watch out! But we've also been featuring Action Wobble on some posts this week. There's been a lot to see!

Today is Dreamweaver Thursday and what better stencil to match this week's theme than this fun Sleigh and Reindeer Stencil (DWLL556). It fits the theme perfectly and is done with the Double Glitter Technique which makes it sparkly and fun. The saying is "Spirit of Christmas" (CRH321) from Stampendous embossed with red embossing powder. No, it doesn't use an Action Wobble, but some of the other posts today do!

Step 2: Attach a 2 3/8" x 5 1/2" piece of Double-sided Mounting Paper to a green mat 2 5/8" x 5 3/4"

Step 3: Soap the back of the stencil and use a 1/2" stencil brush to clean any flakes of the surface and out of the openings

Step 4:  Remove the release paper from the mounting paper and place the stencil, soap side down, on the sticky surface, use a piece of release paper to press the stencil firmly to the mounting paper

Step 5:  Sprinkle the red micro glitter in all the openings and rub in gently, brush away all extra

Step 6:  Turn the image face down on a clean paper towel and carefully peel the paper off the stencil, making sure to keep the stencil flat on the table

Step 7:  Sprinkle the background with Crystal micro glitter and rub in, tap off excess

Step 8: Tape the Sleigh layer near the top of a piece of white cardstock 4" x 6"

Step 9:  Add a beautiful red ribbon from May Arts then attach to the front of the card

Step 10:  Stamp the Spirit of Christmas saying with VersaMark on white cardstock (1 3/4" x 2 1/2") and sprinkle with Real Red Embossing Powder, tap off excess, heat set

Step 11: Tape the saying to a green mat ( 2" x 2 3/4") and attach to the card with foam tape
