Let’s get some holiday crafting STARTED!!
While at Stampers Corner last weekend teaching I fell in love with the Polar Bear stamps + the snow globe die cut from Memory Box. I’ve been a fan of the company for a long time, and I couldn’t say no to them… even with my long history of not actually using adorable animal stamps. I’m determined though – and here’s my first project with them.
enabler note: simonsaysstamp.com has the snow globes (there are a few sizes!) + the polar bear stamps in stock!
After I die cut the snow globe pieces onto manila paper I used pearl dabber paint on the circle, then once dry stamped with black archival ink. The result was a “textured” look to the stamped image. LOVE! The base is stamped with black archival ink lightly – so it’s not even and has an aged look.
Here’s a video of the rest of the process:
and more detail shots…
LOVE how the paint adds that texture! Then how the glossy accents on top adds, well, glossiness! Also? Applying distress stickles before glossy accents is dry = great subtle “snowflakes” in my globe. So fun.
To finish it I just threw on a little tag (edged in ink) and topped with a brad + ribbon.
Which gift gets this tag? AND… what will I make with this die cut next? I am just starting to warm up – and I’m loving every minute.
