DOstamping Tips:

  1. Create your own background paper by collaging images.
  2. Pick out three images and three colors.
  3. Stamp one image at a time, randomly all over the white panel.  Then move on to each image/color until your paper is filled as desired. 
  4. Stamp-off some images to varying the colors (like the pumpkin image)
  5. Don't forget about the Holiday Rhinestones - there's lots of colors to coordinate with a variety of projects!

The Banners For You is not just for Halloween.  It also includes images for fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas & Valentine's Day, making it a very versatile set.  PLUS it's bundled with my favorite new punch, Banner's Pick a Punch!!
