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!

A big congrats to Rochelle, the newest Featured Stamper (FS557)! She has a sweet gallery & after browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the Christmas snow globe but left off the shaker & used different images & dies.

I love this big snow globe and the Christmas Village images fit perfectly inside it. Just had to decide which ones to use. Finally decided on the lovely Gazebo &  Lamp Post & added a couple more trees for balance. After stamping the globe, I die cut a circle almost the same size out of copy paper & used the left over as a reverse mask to stamp the images inside & keep them from going out of the edges.

After coloring everything, I used a white gel pen to add snow where I wanted it &  then some stickles for sparkle. The Triple Holly was fussy cut &  added & the greeting was stamped on the red & I used the white gel pen to highlight the letters. 

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

Weekly-Favorite Welcome to a new challenge for  Serendipity Stamps! The Serendipity Challenge this week is a Shaped Card.

I went with a snow globe shape for my little shaker card. The wonderful winter scene was stamped and colored with Copics then I added stickles to the snow for some sparkle and white dots to the sky for falling snow. While that was drying, I die cut a snow globe out of silver card stock and a larger circle to go with it. I used another size circle to cut a piece of acetate for the front. It is big enough to fit between the smaller and larger silver circles so the edges will be covered. For fun, I die cut a snowy border die out of white then snipped off a bunch of the snowflakes and sandwiched them between the layers.

I traced around the snow globe shape on my folded white card and fussy cut it in the same shape. After cutting the scene into a circle, I elevated the acetate layers, making sure it had silicone sealant all the way around, then added some tiny silver beads and round silver confetti (not too much..I didn’t want it cover up the scene) before sealing them together. A silver string and bow were added to the top. So it’s a card…it’s a snow globe…it’s a shaker ornament to hang on the tree! These are the Copics I used to color the scene.
