I have had a marvellous crafty weekend. At the charity workshop, on Saturday, I made six Christmas cards. I won lots of crafty stash in the raffle and we had a wonderful lunch and lots of cake. Today we went to the Portsmouth Craft show and we met my crafty friend there. We had a lovely chat over the free tea and coffee.
I have been making shaker cards with my Snow Globe die set again. This time I have been stamping the images inside the globe.
I made the layers and the background. I stuck the bar across the pattern paper, before sticking it down, I cut the snow globe die with out its cutting edge out of the paper. It took a bit of effort because of the layers but it worked. I do find this is the best method to use this die set.
I stamped the deer, that came with the stamp set on Creative Stamping Magazine issue 34, onto water colour card and coloured them with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I cut it out with a circle die that was large enough to give a border to stick to the treat cup. I used an anti static bag on the treat cup and I filled it with a snow effect glitter. Next I stuck the image to the treat cup. Finally this can be stuck to the gold background. If you lay it on lightly you can line up the correct position with the top layer.
The holly stamp came with the same set from the magazine.
I used the Sue Wilson Happy Christmas die again for the sentiment. It was cut in black and gold so I could create a shadow.
I cut the snow globe die with the cutting edge from black card. When you lay in over the top of the treat cup you can see the gold through from the under layer.
Here is my stash from the Portsmouth Craft show. My crafty friend gave me all the stamps on the right. She is a very generous lady. I am looking forward to making the MDF baubles and they have lights.
I enjoyed making this card. I like a challenge.
I would like to enter Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 252, Challenge 31 at a Snowflakes Promise Challenge blog , Challenge 46 at the Weekly Christmas Card Challenge Blog , the Glitter and Sparkle Challenge at the Sweet Stamping Christmas Challenge blog and Challenge 43 at the Crafty Friends Challenge blog.
