Hey Crafty People!
Throughout the majority of the year, I have been participating in a monthly blog hop, where we choose a different crafty item & theme each month, in an effort to use up some of our hoarded goodies! I’m not sure whether we will be continuing the hop into the new year, and I wanted to say a huge thank you to the wonderful Squirrels who have worked hard to pull this together each month.
This month’s theme was Snowman and the supply was glitter/sparkles.
I wasn’t sure if I would be able to take part in this month’s hop as we are having a pretty rough few weeks and my inspiration has been in hiding; then the kindness & support I received from my crafty friends reminded me that sometimes we should focus less on the end result, and more on the process of creation. So that is just what I did.
I cut all of my elements from Neenah 80lb & some Gold mirror cardstock, using my Cameo 4 and REALLY simply coloured the various elements for my Snowman with Copics. I used only the ink that was still on* my blue Oxide Ink blending brush to give me a nice blue sky background. (*Yes, I really am that lazy and I aren’t even sorry!!) I stamped my sentiment on the sky with a darker blue ink once I had the other bits of my scene in place.
I stacked up the pieces that make the Snowglobe and sandwiched a piece of acetate between the top two pieces to create a shaker window which I filled with blue seed beads and silver stars.
For some added sparkle I grabbed a bottle of Stickles and put that all around the top frame of my Snowglobe window. I added a shaped & scored card panel which created my opening card base.
The next stop on the hop is the wonderfully talented & kind Lounon, so please be sure to head over there and give her some love! Along with all of the other uber talented, kind & funny ladies who I just know will have some amazing creations for you to see.
