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.
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.
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.
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.

Happy Monday everyone. Time sure flies since I last posted. I’ve been working on a calendar project, and it was my December month that I thought would work as a Christmas card as well. Anyone who knows me knows I am a fan of non-traditional colour Christmas cards. I don’t remember making a traditional red and green Christmas card – EVER. So I took well known Halloween colours and combined it with heat embossing and emboss resist techniques to come up with this CAS Holiday Style card.
I die cut a Stitched Rectangle from Whisper White cardstock. I first stamped the hooks with Charcoal ink, followed by the strings because it was easier to line up the images in this sequence.
Next, I stamped the boughs with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used the emboss resist technique to reveal the boughs. I sponged on some Sour Apple ink and then wiped off the excess ink from the embossed areas.
I used my MISTI to stamp my ornaments with Lavender Fields and Deep Iris inks and then punched them out with a 1″ circle punch. To give them dimension, I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder twice. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder as well, To finish, I mounted the stitched rectangle to a white card base and added a few clear sequins.
This year I plan to donate some of my handmade cards to the Caring Hearts Card Drive. I made this the kickoff of this goal.
