For the Inspiration Challenge (IC727) we’re headed to Ruby Mountain & I chose THIS as my inspiration.

The round shape of the earrings & white snow falling reminded me of this new Snow Globe die I have & wanted to use. I die cut a couple of trees & the larger one on the left, I snipped it out of the oval frame it comes in. Thinned white acrylic paint was used to paint the snow on them & when dry, I added some ink & embossed them w/ a sparkly white powder. I used part of a snowflake frame image to add the embossed falling snow. For the greeting, I stamped it onto a piece of white shrink plastic w/ Stazon & heated it. A larger metallic blue layer was added behind the snow globe to go w/ the stand of the snow globe. On the deckle frame, I swiped a dark blue ink along the inside & outside edges & heat embossed w/ a blue satin powder & purposely left the little specks of powder here & there. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC678) & I chose Joss & Main for the site. They have some fab Holiday decorations & ideas. I was inspired by THIS set of canapé plates. I really love the winter images & plaid.

After stamping & coloring my holiday snowman, I stamped the plaid background onto light red cardstock w/ black ink then used a few darker red Copics to add a little tone variation. I die cut both panels then used a curved border die to cut the bottom of the snowman panel. A couple of die cut buttons were added w/ a little glossy dimensional glaze added on top of them. The greeting was a little too large, so I stamped it w/ Stazon on the front of a piece of shrink plastic, die cut it w/ a circle die & most importantly, punched the hole at the top before shrinking it w/ a heat gun. I used a G02 to color the backside before I shrunk it. It was barely even noticeable but look how much darker it became when shrunk. A little Stickles was added to the snow & icicles.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
