Angel Kisses

Welcome to Dreamweaver Thursday and our weekly theme of "Sugar Plum Wishes and Angel Kisses". The Stampendous Design Team has been busy this week sharing not only ideas for our weekly theme, but hopping with the folks at Patty Pop Ons too!  Be sure to check out all the different ideas!

Yesterday I shared a cute little House Mouse design for the Sugar Plum Wishes side of our theme. Today I showing you a beautiful stencil from Dreamweaver.  It's a simple, but elegant card using our Shadow Technique.

SSC1231 Holiday Expressions Perfectly Clear Stamps™
SSH57 Jumbo Perfectly Clear™ Acrylic Handle
GM220U Crystal Ultra Fine glitter

DWLJ871 Angel Stencil
DWDPP Pearlescent Embossing Paste
DWDPK Dreamweaver Palette Knife
DWLM2010 Paste Spreader
DWNHB-12 1/2" Brush #12 Natural Handle

Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives
Neenah Papers Classic Crest Cover Solar White 80# 04701
VersaFine Majestic Blue
Double-sided tape
Foam tape


Step 1:  Fold a 7" x 10" piece of blue cardstock in half to form an A7 card

Step 2:  Tape the stencil to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock and use a 1/2" stencil brush to brush Majestic Blue ink over the whole design, remove the stencil and clean it

Step 3:  Place the clean, dry stencil back over the design, then shift it up and to the left about 1/16", tape in place

Step 4:  Apply Pearlescent Embossing Paste using a Palette Knife and Paste Spreader, remove stencil and place in water for cleaning

Step 5:  Immediately sprinkle Crystal glitter on the wings, halo, bird, and star, carefully tapping off extra away from the rest of the image, let paste dry thoroughly

Step 6: Mount the Angel to a 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" dark blue mat, then to the front of the card toward the left side

Step 7:  Stamp the saying, from the Holiday Expressions set, on white cardstock ( 1 1/2" x 1 1/2") with Majestic Blue ink, mount on a dark blue mat (1 3/4" x 1 3/4")

Step 8:  Attach the saying to the lower right side with foam tape
