STILL SCENES

Snow Globe DSPSnow globes are a perfect choice for Christmas – whether you live in Arizona, Illinois or Alaska!  For October Stamp Camp, we are featuring a Snow Globe Card.  The products for our Still Scenes card can be found on page 43 of your Holiday Catalogue.  The Still Scenes Stamp Set includes the house and trees, the ornate globe holder, 2 sentiments, a small cluster of snowflakes and a dome stamp.  The Snow Globe Scenes Dies include much more – a small deer, 2 polar bears, 2 churches, 3 trees, and of course the dies for the globe and stand.  In the card to our left, I colored the image with Stampin’ Blends and used Shimmery Crystal Effects to adhere some Ice Stampin’ Glitter.  After the “snow” had dried, I took the Snow Globe Shaker Dome, removed the adhesive backing and CAREFULLY added additional Ice Stampin’ Glitter and Snowflake Sequins to the center of the globe.  The Still Scenes image was then adhered to the adhesive globe backing.  The globe was die cut from the front of the DSP layer, the adhesive on the front of the shaker dome was removed, and the snow globe popped right through the front of the DSP. 

Snow Globe PlaidOn both samples, I decided to add a rim around the globe to add focus to the scene.  Using a circle die about 1/8” larger than the globe die, I die cut a circle of Navy for the sample above and gold for the sample to the right.  The globe die was laid inside the circle and die cut.  This provided the thin circle that highlights the globe.  A coordinating color was used to die cut the globe base backing and a metallic foil was used for the outer base.  For the card to the right, I added Dazzling Diamonds to the roof and trees of the scene and used some loose in the dome with the ice glitter and sequins.  I find the Dazzling Diamonds is quite fine and likes to stick to the globe. 

The background paper for these cards comes from the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the classic Wrapped in Plaid DSP.  I can only guarantee 1 each of the DSP designs shown in the samples.  Many crafters from September Stamp Camp saw the samples and have chosen to do 4 Snow Globe cards for October.  Thus the limit of 1 each of the designs shown above.  However, the other DSP patterns are lovely and you can see them in the Holiday Catalog.  I have purchased additional holiday sentiment dies so we are not limited to the sentiments shown above.

Make sure you let me know which day you will be coming for October Stamp Camp so I can insure we have the card stock pre-cut for the cards you choose to do.  The next 2 posts will be dedicated to Halloween – not scary cards – and are perfect for children and adults alike.
