Here's the snow globe I made for her - It's the second one I've done and I love how they both turned out. This one is a slightly smaller version than the one I posted earlier using Magnolia images. I covered the small round tin with some paper from my stash, used glossy accents to secure some trees in the background, then adhered my stamped image (after he was colored with my Copics and cut out of course!). I then added Polar White Flowersoft for snow before using Glossy Accents to glue the bowl to the top of the tin. I was surprised how well it held after a few second dry time.
Here's the matching card. I colored all of the images in using the same colors and for this card I followed the sketch from Lili of the Valley. I cut him out using my deckled rectangle Spellbinders, inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink and added a Digital sentiment from Whimsy Stamps. I then added Diamond Stickles everywhere!
And the inside:
Here's the matching gift bag for all of her gifts to go in and I LOVE how it turned out! I used a plain blue bag from the dollar store, added blue/silver sparkly ribbon from AC Moore to the top and bottom of the bag, then followed the sketch from Lili of the Valley for the bag as well. I added the same image and digital sentiment, but added two flowers in the corner which were glimmer misted with Frost Glimmer Mist and Pearl Glimmer Mist which can be found at StampingScrapping.com. I then tied a bow using the same ribbon and adhered it to the handle of the gift bag. I think it turned out pretty well for my first bag!
Here's a close-up:
And finally the candle. I love this technique and it is SOOO easy! I stamped the image on a piece of white tissue paper, colored it in with copics and cut around the image closely. I then placed the image where I wanted it to be on the candle and wrapped a piece of wax paper around it. I melted the image onto the candle using my heat embossing tool, then added Diamond stickles for the snow and on his hat. Finally, two pieces of snowflake ribbon and a bow completed this easy project.
My niece LOVED these gifts and I had so much fun creating them for her. Be sure to check out the challenge at Fussy and Fancy for this week and link up your own project for a chance to win some fabulous prizes! Hope to see you there!
