Can you tell that sometimes Dream Team's "Fearless Leader", Pam Hornschu, has a hard time deciding on monthly challenges? Since the team will be taking turns all month with the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween, and we have done a Christmas collaboration with Stampendous and Core'dinations the 13th - 17th, the confusion should be understandable. Therefore...happy HallowThanksMas! As usual, we'd love for you to play along with the challenge and link your creations to the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog. Just in case you are wondering...NO, YOU DO NOT NEED TO POST SOMETHING WITH ALL THREE HOLIDAYS ON IT! However, you get bonus points for actually using Dreamweaver stencils and product on your creations! And bonus points might actually earn you an extra stencil as our monthly winner...just sayin'!

Here's my creation for today:

This is what you will need:-

Dreamweaver Stencil LL3005 Holly and Swirls
Colorbox Circus ink pad
Sentiment stamp
Stampendous Crystal Embossing powder
Adhesive gems
White, Red and Green card
Stencil brushes
Heat Gun
Momento Black Onyx ink pad

And this is what I did:-

Step 1 Attach the stencil to the white card and using  stencil brushes apply the colour through the stencil.  Remember start light and add darker shades as you feel necessary.  Remove stencil.

Step 2 Take the Crystal embossing powder and apply over inked design. Make sure that the whole of the image is covered and then return any excess powder to the pot.  Using a heat gun apply heat until the powder becomes shiny, keep the heat moving so that it doesn't over heat and get absorbed into the card.

Step 3  Use a black ink pad and stamp your sentiment in the bottom right hand corner of the panel.

Step 4 Final steps add  your adhesive gems, remember if you only have clear you can colour using alcohol markers.  Put the gems where the berries are on your design.  Matt and layer your card.   A quick card that is bright and cheery.

Remember to visit the rest of the team, as well as our guest designer, as confusion takes rein...could be interesting!
