We’re able to do this thanks to our terrific distributors in those countries who help retail stores to stock our products. In the UK we have a very long and valued partnership with Woodware Craft Collection. These wonderful folks stock almost all of our products, and they even stock several classic items that have retired from our store here in the US. They also stock almost all of our new Dreamweaver Stencils line, so we thought it would be another great event to celebrate the addition of Dreamweaver to the Stampendous family.

Well Day 5 has arrived far to quickly, and its been an enjoyable week with lots of beautiful cards and inspiration from all the teams.
and this is what I used:-
Light purple card
Dreamweaver stencil LG762 Thoughtful Fairy
Stampendous Stamp CRP113
Distress ink pad
Stampendous Detail Black embossing powder
Frantage Encusted Jewels Purple
Adhesive pearl gems
Selection of Buttons
Liquid pearls - White
Versamark Ink pad
Stampendous ultra Fine glitter - Lavender
This is how I completed the card:-
Start out with the Stampendous vineyard stamp and stamp using versamark ink pad cover this with the detail black embossing powder and heat with a heat gun. Colour the image (I used distress ink pads and alcohol pens) On the furrow areas of the image I used a quickie Glue pen and scattered the Frantage Encrusted Jewels on to this. Once this is on the image heat from underneath to adhere all the different 'jewels' to the background.
The fairy panel is next and for this I drew around the stencil design with a Black Pigma fine liner. The fairy was then coloured with alcohol markers. To finish this panel I used white liquid pearls and then scattered Stampendous Ultra fine glitter (lavender) over the top. This will give the fairy sparkle
The final stages are to put the card together, and add adhesive pearls to card along with buttons (each has a adhesive pearl in the centre, I coloured these with my alcohol pens to match my card. The last thing as always was to tie ribbon round the spine of the card with a double knot .
If you are in the UK or Europe and would like to purchase any of the products for the above projects they are all available from The Stampman or your local Woodware Stockist.
I really hope you have enjoyed the week.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely Easter
