Santa Globe

How many of you have fallen in love with the "globe" stamps and coordinating Grand Snow Globe die 98228?   I know I have.  I bought ever single one of the snow globe stamps.  Let's see...there's the Polar Bear Globe D1823, the Cottage Globe D1822, the Santa Globe D1821, and the Pinecone Globe D1824.  They're all adorable.  We had a lot of fun playing with them at my recent class at The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington, IL.  

Here's one of the cards we made featuring the Santa Globe.

MB Post 11-22

Instructions

  1. Ink up globe stamp of your choice (I used Santa Globe) with Black Archival Ink and stamp on white card stock.
  2. Using Grand Globe Die, die cut this image leaving about 1/8” of white all around.
  3. Color image with medium of your choice.  I used Prismacolor pencils 
  4. I used a Copic BG10 marker to just line a little bit of the snow at the horizon.
  5. I used a Spica marker to make small dots all over the black area of the image.  You can barely see them, but I wanted "stars" in my sky.
  6. Cover entire image with Versamark using direct to paper technique and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Apply a second layer of Versamark and clear embossing powder and heat set again.
  7. Cut a strip of Licorice card stock using the bottom part of the Grand Globe Die and attach to bottom of the stamped image.  Set aside.
  8. Die cut the white strip of paper using the Charlotte Border Die.  Distress a little bit with Antique Linen and finger dauber.  Attach behind strip of Licorice Dots paper and attach to the left side of Holly Berry Note card
  9. Attach Snow globe to center of card using foam tape.
  10. Stamp We Wish on small piece of white card stock.  Lightly distress with Antique Linen and finger dauber and adhere to small piece of black card stock and attach to lower right of card.
