Snowglobe Shaker Card

Hi everyone. I'm back again to share with you my latest card.  Ever since I bought the Holiday Frame stamp set illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger for Gina K. Designs, I knew I wanted to try my hand at making a shaker card with it. I looked at a couple of how-to videos and found that I liked Kristina Werner's video the best because she also gives some really good tips.

I first planned out the shaker portion of the card, used a 3.5" circle die to cut two circles, one from acetate and the second from heavy weight card stock.  Stamped the trees with GKD Christmas Pine ink and colored with Copic YG61 and added "snow" with a white pigment ink pen. The background is colored with Copic markers, I really didn't want to have to mask the trees and then added snow with the white pen.  I placed two-face foam tape around the perimeter of this circle following Kristina's instructions, added snowflake sequins and crystal glitter then adhered the acetate circle. Yay, it worked!

Once the hard part (for me) was done, I stamped the Holiday Frame and snow globe base using my MISTI (works every time).  Cut the opening, stamped the snowflakes and greeting, colored the base and outline with Spectrum Noir markers and then attached the shaker part. After adding the ribbon I adhered the whole thing onto GKD Heavy Base Weight White cardstock. Of course I had to add just a bit of bling and snowflake sequins. 

I love how this card came out, my thanks to Kristina's easy instructions, and I hope you like it too. I'm entering this card: StampTV December Release Challenge and the Mod Squad Challenge.

Christmas Tags

Hello. Come and join us over at StampTV where I am hosting this week's Mix-It-Up-Monday (MIUM) challenge. Can you believe Christmas is just 13 days away! I'm sure everyone is busy, busy, busy, so we're going to keep things nice and simple. Let's make tags: big, small, holiday, birthday, fancy, simple, you choose. Make a tag (or tags) and just have fun with it. Tags are a great way to use up those scraps.

I made these with my scraps:

Gina K. supplies used:
Card stock: Kraft and White Layering
Stamps: Music Background, Holiday Frame, Holiday Basket (Small Poinsettia) and Home Is (From our House with Love)
Gina K. Inks: White, Red Hot, Christmas Pine, Blue Lagoon, Kraft and Charcoal Brown

I hope you come by and join in on the fun. Have a wonderfully creative week.

Hugs & Blessings
