Simple and Sweet Snowglobe Christmas Card

This is a sample Christmas card I made for my sister using Sweet Snowglobe from the Holiday Mini Catalog. It’s a single stamp, offered for $8.95 and it coordinates with the Sweet Treat Cups. Since this is going to be mailed, I decided not to use the cups (postage for 40+ cards would be crazy!)

For the base, I used Real Red Textured Card stock, layered with Old Olive and Whisper White. The top corners of each layer were rounded with the Corner Chomper, but you could also use the Corner Rounder Punch on the two single layers.

I used the SU Markers to color the snowglobe (Real Red, Soft Suede, Baja Breeze and Old Olive). Then, I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the snowy parts with the 2 Way Glue Pen.

To continue the glittery theme, I added 3 Glimmer Brads (in Real Red, Old Olive, and Soft Suede–Brights and Neutrals collection). By using the cropadile, I made sure each brad would be lined up.

Across the top, I stamped “Merry Christmas” from Christmas Greetings in Real Red ink, paper pierced below it and added some Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon.

The White layer is adhered with stampin dimensionals to the base.

And yes, I know it’s September and I just made a Christmas card. It’s a sickness!


Something Sweet Gumball Machine for Boys


When I play with a stamp set, I like to make a few cards at once. It gives me a chance to try out different ideas, all of which won’t work on just one card. Yesterday I made gumballs with Circle Rhinestone Brads. Today, I used Rain Dots in these bright gumball colors.

The card base is Tempting Turquoise, layered with Tall Tales Designer Series Paper. The gumball machine from Something Sweet was stamped in Apricot Appeal Ink on Whisper White card stock. I trimmed the bottom part with scissors and the top circle was punched with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. I added the adhesive backed Rain Dots to the circle portion and set them aside.

Before adhering the DSP to the base with Stampin Dimensionals, I punched a hole in the DSP with the 1 3/4 Circle Punch. I added a Sweet Treats Cup and removed the adhesive ring. Then, I put the circle with the Rain Dots behind the Sweet Treats Cup so that the edges of the circle touch the adhesive ring. This helps hold the circle in place. The bottom of the gumball machine was then adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Something Sweet in Real Red ink on Whisper White, punching it out with the Large Oval Punch and layering it onto a Real Red Scallop Oval Punch. That was attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.
