Snow Globe Stampin' Up! Still Scenes

Wishing you a Very Blessed Christmas, and Happy New Year.

Still Scenes 150503 Stampin' Up! Cling Stamp Set

This beautiful Snow Globe Builder set  is such an amazing set. Build little Scenes up and enhance them with a Snow Globe effect either with Water or Dry with glitter or sparkles.  I have been having fun with this set since last year and find it to be a beautiful addition to your stamp set.  Here I have added Glitter to the Globe and Water.  This one takes a little more time to make but it is to die for.  The Beauty of the Globe is amazingly Gorgeous.

Here I have used the Still Scenes with the Die Cutter Snow Globe Scenes.  With your dies you could construct many fabulous scenes for Christmas, Birthday and many occasions just with some Smaller stamp Sets.

Have a wonderful Christmas, Stay Safe
love Carolyn.

Triple Cube Christmas Card.

It has been a while since I posted last.  After a few family illnesses we are battling.  Over the weekend I had a little bit of rejuvenation from some bright sunny days to the spirit of Christmas bursting onto the scene.  With a little bit of Inspiration and warmth in my bones again I decided to make this Triple Cube Card for a Christmas Special.

The Pattern I found on Splitcoast Stampers Site in the Tutorials.   Their instructions are always amazing.  Thank you Splitcoast Stampers for such professional and great instructions.  I am a Member of Splitcoast Stampers as I like to support them for all their wonderful inspiration they share.  Here is the web address:

I have first made my Cube Card and then used our beautiful Designer Frost Paper to Layer in front of each cube.  This could also be used in the inside of the cubes as well.

I then Die cut my Christmas Trees from our gorgeous Stampin' Up! dies 'In the Woods'. Using our Metallic Silver Card.  The two bare trees on the front cubes I used the Rainbow Glitter paper to cut these from just using the green section.  I only adhered the tree to the centre fold so it would sit flat when folded down ready to post.

Here is a closer view of the trees and decorations.  I used the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels which are gorgeous for decorating all things Christmas plus.  I also used a few little dies from other of my die sets to add a little more Christmassy feel to the scene.

Here is my side view of my cubed Card.  The most wonderful part of this cubed Card is that it sits absolutely flat when folded down for posting such an advantage.

Here we are the card flat ready to place into the envelope.
Happy Crafting Friends.
I look forward to another week of crafting adventures.
love Carolyn.

# For Ever Fern. Meets # Positive Thoughts.

Australian Natives  #Stampin' Up!  "Forever Fern", "Positive Thoughts"

 I decided to create an Australian Native Flower Card in Easel Form using our 'Forever Fern Stamp Set' and 'Positive Thoughts Stamp Set'.   I have stamped Crushed Curry Wattle Flower and used the Pretty Peacock Ink Pad for the Blue Gum.  The beautiful Pink Berries are the Lilly Pilly Berries which grow in the Tropical Rain Forest of Australia.  Have used the Old Olive Pad for the Eucalyptus Leaves.  And as the Easel Holder I have Placed the Bloom from the 'Positive Thoughts' Stamp set for the Waratah  This has been stamped in three layers and popped up on dimensionals..

Under the Easel Flap I have added a greeting as well as leaving the rest for your message.  The Waratah is made from 3 Layers of the Blossom and I have coloured it on my Stamparutus in Layers of Cherry Cobbler, Blackberry Bliss and Rococo Rose.  When colouring the Flower this way I just randomly colour the flower in Layers of colour.  Not colouring the whole Blossom but just adding different Layers until I have the effect I want.

Have a wonderful week crafting.
with Crafty love

PositiveThoughts Stamps and Dies by Stampin' Up!

 Using Whisper White Card Stock as your Base of card. I Stamped three generation Stamping from my inked image on the background.  Used the Maiden Hair Fern Stamp to back 3 D Work.
