Whimsy Stamps ~ Snowglobe Sweetie
Hey friends, I've run out of November! I really wanted to share this cute creation with you earlier, but the days have just run away with me and so here it is a little later than intended, but oh so cute none the less!
I used the Whimsy Stamps Glitter Globe Die Set to create this fun Glitter Globe Shaker design. The cute snowflake elements you can see in the globe are part of the die set. I cut these from some white cardstock, added some lovely iridescent sparkly gems from This Calls For Confetti, which Whimsy Stamps stocks and some chunky glitter to finish. The backing base and hanging loop, I cut from a lovely bokeh design paper from Whimsy Stamps Blurry Flurries Paper Pack. This is a beautiful paper pack with so many lovely designs perfect for Christmas and Wintery scenes.
I finished the design by adding this adorable wee Penguin from Crissy Armstrong's Penguin Winter Clear Stamp Set, which is full of the sweetest penguin images and some fun companion elements. I used London Fog to ink the stamp, as I didn't want a stark black image after the much softer finish I'd achieved on the rest of the design. So I used London Fog Memento Ink and then softly coloured the image with Copics and finished with a touch of chunky glitter on the fur trim of the hat. The sentiment turned out much softer than I intended, but it's still perfectly visible up close and stays true to the softer finish I'd envisioned for this creation. It reads PEACE*JOY*NOEL.
Thanks for popping in to visit, I will be back in a couple of days with some makes for December. I've been crafting like crazy, which always happens to me at this time of year, last minute lass syndrome! I am so happy with the lovely line up I've created for this Christmas, so I'm looking forward to sharing! Until then, hugs and happy crafting xoxo
