Do You Wanna Build a Snowman with Dreamweaver?

The Stampendous team has been building snowmen all week, and since it's Dreamweaver Thursday, we will be using some fabulous stencils with today's projects. Today, my card features the Whispered Wishes stamp and the Chevron Background stencil.

I colored these sweet friends with my Chameleon Pens. This is a great image for those pens. I also love that this image has a sentiment built right in. Making your finished card is that much easier because of it. And, you can always not ink the sentiment if you don't want to use it...or only ink the sentiment. Lots of options here!

For the Chevron Background, I used the super fun and sparkly Double Glitter Technique. You can check out a video tutorial HERE. It's really easy, and the effect is fantastic!

On my card base, I sprayed a little green Dylusions spray. This is a pretty quick card to make. From the ease of the Chameleon Pens, to the simple Double Glitter technique, and just a couple of spritzes of color. Please be sure to check out the rest of the gals posting today. Their links are below. Thanks for stopping by Have an inspiring day!


Love that Chevron BG! Great color combo too!
