For my cards below, I am showcasing the Snow Globe Scenes Stamp set and Dies with the Snow Globe Shaker Die, plus the new Double-sided adhesive foam and Acetate sheets (they’re awesome and a must-have for shaker cards). They are all going to be available for purchase at the shop on October 20th. Here’s what the stamps and dies look like:
For the first card, I cut an A2 size (4 1/4 by 5 1/2) Neenah Solar White card stock and used the Snow Globe shaker die to die-cut the window for my card front. I stamped the snow image with my versa mark ink and heat-embossed it with my white embossing powder. I inked up the background with my broken china distress ink with my blending tool to make the snow pop. I used an embossing folder to dry-embossed the birch trees on my card front.
I stamped my images in with my stamping platform tool (this is also a must-have for stampers) and colored the images in with my Copic markers. I die cut the images with the coordinating dies, and adhered it to my colored background.
I die-cut the Double-sided foam adhesive and the acetate sheets with the Snow Globe shaker die. I adhered the acetate sheet and the card stock to my small window. I used some iridescent glitter as my shaker elements to create the look of snow. I finished the design of the card with my peppermint baker’s twine and added the little star label with the sentiment. I wanted the focal point to be all about my skater snow globe. Here’s the card:
For my second card, I used the rest of the images that I colored and adhered them to my tag to create my scene. To finish my design, I added the Red Berry Nuvo Crystal drops to one of the small reindeers.
I love, love, love this stamp set. You can create so many different scenes using this stamp set for your cards, scrapbook layouts or Christmas gift tags. The possibilities are endless! Here’s my second card:
