Snow Globe Card Kit

It's time to shop! You can find the new Snow Globe Card Kit HERE. I seriously love this kit! Creating fun snow/glitter filled snow globe cards has never been easier!

I have a few more cards to share with you today. The first one is very clean and simple, I wanted lots of white space. I used Black Licorice, Orange Fizz, Smooth White, Sno Cone, and Wild Cherry for card stock, the base of the snow globe was created with Cherry Wood Adhesive Backed Sheets.

 I wanted to go with a warmer feel for my next card. Using the Snowfall Stencil, I sponged Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink on Kraft card stock. I framed the background with a Wild Cherry Single Stitch Line Frame.


I filled both of the Dome Shaker Pouches with Diamond Dust Glitter that is included in the kit. I love the chunky look of this glitter.

Snow Globe Card Kit

I have a couple of bright and cheery cards to share with you today. They both feature items from the new Snow Globe Card Kit. The kit will be available Tuesday, September 19 at 9pm EST. You won't want to miss this one!

I decided to get out the Blending Tools and some Distress ink for these cards. I used Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to create the bright sky. The snowflakes were all die-cut with one of the dies from the Scenic Snow Globe Die-namics. I used Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to color the house and the snowman's hat and scarf. The trees also got a dusting of Distress Ink.


I used the fabulous Dome Shaker Pouches on both cards. I LOVE these things! I filled each pouch with a bit of Diamond Dust. Here's a quick tip, go over the inside of your shaker pouch with a dryer sheet, and your glitter and sequins won't cling to the shaker pouch.

I stamped the sentiments from Snow Globe Sentiments on Kraft Card Stock.

Snow Globe Card Kit

We have an AMAZING kit for you this month! The new Snow Globe Card Kit may just be my all-time favourite kit. It will be available Tuesday, September 19 at 9pm EST.

I have a couple of cards to share with you today. I kept them both fairly clean and simple. Creating a snow globe scene is so easy with these new Dome Shaker Pouches. You are going to LOVE them!


For my second card, I used the house die from the Scenic Snow Globe Die-namics. This little house is so fun to put together. I place adhesive sheets on the back of my card stock before I die-cut the card stock. This simple step makes assembling the house an absolute breeze.

I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments Stamp Set on the Cherry Wood Adhesive Backed Paper.

Blessed

Ready? Set. Comment!   

I have a couple of cards to share with you today, they both feature the amazing Blessed and Blessings Die-namics. I love this set of dies!

I played with the Peerless Watercolours to create the background for the first card. I had to let go of my need to control the process as the ink randomly made its way around my card stock. Yes, that is hard for me. LOL The word blessed was die-cut in Hot Fudge card stock and then placed on the card once the ink was dry. I finished off the card with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.


I've been seeing lots of stitching on cards lately, and I couldn't resist breaking out some of my DMC floss to create this card. The fall colours go so well with this sentiment.
