The wintry images in the Snow Globe stamp set are so adorable! I've put together the penguin and snowman for this first card. I stamped them, colored with Copics, then did some aqua ink blending on the sky before stamping some aqua and metallic silver snowflakes and my sentiment.
Once the stamping was done, I adhered the Circle Foam Front Shaker, filled the shaker with kit toppings, and covered with acetate. I stamped the snow globe base in black, then grounded that with some light gray shading. To get that stitched aqua frame. I started with the circle that's left over from a Circle Foam Front Diecut, then used a smaller circle die from my stash to cut the middle out, leaving me with a perfectly sized circle frame.
Along the top, I added various embellishments in the same white, purple and aqua colors as the snow globe scene.
For my next card, I wanted to create a serene wintry scene. In both soft and smokey grays, I stamped a grouping of trees, leaving the limbs bare for winter. Having four separate limb stamps to mix and match is so helpful for a grouping like this, as each tree can look slightly different. I sponged on a light gray horizon line to help give the effect of a snow-covered ground, then filled the shaker with white, silver, and aqua toppings.
There is a holly berry image in the stamp set that works double-time as the aqua "snowballs" in this scene. The globe base is stamped, trimmed out and adhered to the frame layer. I selectively stamped words from two different sentiment images to get this simple "for you" sentiment.
Last card for today is a stamped wreath popped up on the foam circle negative.
This one is pretty straightforward. I stamped the pine sprig, holly leaves, holly berries, pinecones, and bow to make the wreath, stamped "best wishes" in the center, and adhered it to the foam circle.
