Thanks for stopping by for the Color Fusers Blog Hop. We hop the first Monday of each month, and share a color challenge with you.
The colors this month made me think of trees, so I created a cute little scene in a snow globe, representing what many of us are doing this time of year, getting our tree ready for the holidays!
The Festive Post stamp set was a perfect pairing with the Snow Globe Scenes dies to create today’s project.
I used new Blending Brushes to create the soft background color inside the globe with Night of Navy ink. These Blending Brushes will be available in January, and are absolutely amazing! Another awesome tool, the Stamparatus, worked perfectly to stamp the car and tree in different colors, by first inking just the car, then inking just the tree, assuring perfect alignment.
That cute little bear is from the Snow Globe Scenes die set. Isn’t it adorable? I finished it all off by adding some Snowflake Sequins inside the globe, as well as to the front.
To create this project:
- Cut a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Pretty Peacock card base, score at 4 1/4″
- Cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White cardstock
- Cut a 3″ x 3″ layer of Whisper White for the globe scene
- Cut a 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ strip of Whisper White cardstock for the sentiment
- Die cut 3 Pretty Peacock globe bases plus 1 detailed globe base, and adhere all together
Ink the small piece of Whisper white cardstock with Night of Navy ink. Stamp the car with Night of Navy ink and the tree in Granny Apple Green ink. Add additional trees as desired. Add a die cut brown bear. Die cut the globe opening on the large Whisper White layer using the Snow Globe Scenes dies, then emboss the layer with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. Place the globe dome into opening. Place Snowflake Sequins into center of stamped scene and adhere the dome layer on top. Tie ribbon around globe base, and adhere to card. Add Night of Navy sentiment.
