Guest Surprise Sweetie Challenge 387

Happy Sunday everyone!  I’m back again and I am excited to be a guest Surprise Sweetie for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 387.  This week it is a theme challenge and the theme is Snow Globe.


CIC 387


I was so happy to find out about this theme because I finally got to ink up images from a stamp set that I purchased many years ago.  Unfortunately, this set is no longer available.  Anyway, here’s my card.


Snow Globe Christmas Card


This was pretty simple to make.  I stamped the snow globe image with Intense Black ink in the centre of a white stitched rectangle panel  and then coloured with Prismacolor pencils.


Snow Globe Christmas Card


I wanted the snow globe to look like it’s glowing, so I sponged on some Bashful Blue ink, ensuring to leave white space around it.  For the starry background, I used a white Signo gel pen.  To make a few of the stars “shine”, I used a white Prismacolor pencil to add radiating lines.

I die cut the sentiment twice from white cardstock and once from glitter paper to stack them for dimension.  The panel was mounted on a top folding white card base and glossy accents was added to the globe as the finishing touch.

Now it’s your turn.  Enter for a chance to win a prize from this week’s sponsor Digital Stamps by Louby Lou.
