Step by step instructions for snowglobe cards using Stampin' Up! Still Scenes bundle

Hello lovely stampers.

Back with the step by step instructions for the snow globe cards. A little bit later than planned, but with hubby away at his annual Bathurst holiday, Mum's taxi has been on extra shifts. Plus it's Spring here in Melbourne so lots of lovely fun to be had in the garden on the weekend too. Have planted the veggie gardens and have some lovely petunia seedlings to go in pots too. I love Spring and I love flowers. If you follow my Instagram, you will know I love taking pictures of my flowers as well as.  It's tome to talk about cards now though, particularly these lovely snowblobe cards using Stampin' Up! Still Scenes bundle from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.

Still Scenes

I showed you one version of these cards last week. This week I am back with two more versions, along with step by step instructions for assembling them. My first card uses the gorgeous baby and mama bear in the die set.

They are just too cute don't you think? I also layered some of the trees in there cut from the DSP (I adhered to a layer of cardstock for a bit more stiffness).

The second version of the card is the one I did the step by step instructions for. For this card I have stamped the image and coloured it using watercolour pencils. I stamped two of the images and  cut the cottage area out and popped it up for some dimension.

Here's what you need to build the snow globe cards:

  • Still Scenes Bundle
  • Snow Globe Shaker Domes
  • Snowflake Sequins
  • Christmas patterned paper (I used Wrapped in Plaid from the Holiday Catalogue).
  • Base card (I have used Cherry Cobbler)
  • Cardstock to stamp the image on (I have used Shimmery White)
  • Watercolour pencils and Blender Pen for the colouring
  • Pool Party ink pad and a Stampin' Sponge or Sponge Dauber.
  • Mini Dimensional foam dots
  • Coordinating cardstock for the base of the dome (I have used Crimb Cake and Copper foil)
  • Crumb Cake cardstock for the greeting piece
  • Stazon Black ink for stamping the image
  • Early Espresso ink for the greeting.

Here's the steps:

1. Cut a standard top folding C6 card in Cherry Cobbler plus a layer of Cherry Cobbler 10cm 0r 3 & 15/16 inches x 14.3cm or 5 & 5/8 inches, plus a layer of patterned paper the same size (10cm x 14.3cm). Attached the patterned paper and Cherry Cobbler layers together.

2. Using the globe shaped die from the Still Scenes bundle, cut one from the top layer (the top of the snow globe cut out piece on mine is 1.6cm or 5/8 inch from the top of the layer) , and another from a peiece of Shimmery White cardstock.

3. Stamp the cottage image in black Stazon onto the Shimmery White globe piece, and also onto a scrap of Shimmery White.

4. Colour the images using Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen. Colour the full image except cottage on the die cut piece, just the cottage and side plant on the scrap piece. I used the following colours: Shaded Spruce, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Crushed Curry and Early Espresso. 

5. Cut the cottage and side plant (on left) from the scrap piece and layer them over the die cut image with mini Dimensionals. 

6. Sponge Pool Party ink around the outside.

7. PLace some Snail Adhesive as a guide and use the top layer as a placement guide (don't adhere the top layer yet though) so that you can adher the coloured image piece to the base card.

8. Get one of the  Snow Globe Shaker Domes and remove the adhesive on one side - the side where the dome is shaped upwards. 

9. Place the dome through the top layer and it will adhere to the edges of the cardstock around the globe to hold it in place. Leave the backing adhesive in place for now.

10. Use an Embossing Buddy to rub against the inside of the snow globe dome piece (this prevents the sequins from sticking to the inside of the dome too much).

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

11. Sprinkle sequins over the image on the base card, keeping them away from the edges. 

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

12. Remove the backing adhesive from the snow dome, and also place Snail Adhesive around the edges of the top card layer. Place that over the top of the the base card layer so your dome part is complete.

13. Cut a snow dome base piece in Crumb Cake cardstock, and a decorative layering piece from Copper foil cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.
14. Layer and adhere these underneath the snow globe.

15. Tie a linen thread bow and adhere with a glue dot to the right side of the base of the dome. 

16. Stamp your greeting onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock (in Early Espresso ink)  and trim to size, then cut banner ends (you can either use the Banner Triple Punch to do this, or freehand. The Banner Triple Punch cuts banner ends in 3 sizes and is awesome!!).

You are done!

Using the Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste

I tried out the new embossing paste from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue last weekend. There are 3 key products in this range:

The masks can be used for spongeing, but in this case when combined with the Embossing Paste and smoothed over with the Palette Knives, you get a lovely raised effect which adds dimension and texture to your papercraft projects. It's super simple to use (just make sure you have a plastic mat) and I was surprised how quickly it dried. I use my Silicone Craft Sheet to create colours by adding a drop or two of re-inker to 3/4 - 1 teaspoon of Embossing Paste (that usually covers a couple of cards. I use the Palette Knives to mix on the Silcone Craft Sheet. There's a video at the end of the post which shows how this is done.

Here's a closer look at the four mask patterns you get in the Party Patterns Decorative masks pack.

Party Pattern Decorative Masks

Here's two of the cards I made. For this one I have used 2 drops of Powder Pink ink refill in about 1 teaspoon of embossing paste, and then sprinkled some gold glitter randomly over the top (while the embossing paste was still wet) and shook off the excess.

My stamp set is Happy Birthday Gorgeous which is a new set 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. I love the funky font on this set and it has so many other great greetings. The paper is Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.

For this second card I have used the cloud mask and 1 drop of Soft Sky re-inker in about 3/4 teaspoon of Embossing Paste. I love the effect this gives for clouds. I have used the Lift Me Up stamp set and Up & Away Thinlits to complete my card. This is a nice colour combination to use with the new InColour Powder Pink.

I am featuring the lovely Fruit Stand Designer Series paper. To be honest, this wasn't a paper that immediately caught my eye, but I received a small sample in a team product share and when I was looking for a paper to use for this card set, the bright colours really caught my eye and now I really like and have ordered a whole pack as part of the special so I can use more of it!

My project is a card box which holds four mini cards and envelopes. The box and envelopes are made using our Envelope Punch Board.

Mini card box and cards / enveloes made with Envelope Punch Box using Fruit Stand DSP by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The box and envelope colour is Cucumber Crush and the card colour Flirty Flamingo which coordinate perfectly with the Fruit Stand DSP. The other colours featured in the DSP are Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizazz, Tangerine Tango, Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White.

The box holds four mini cards and handmade envelopes. The cards are 3.5" x 3.5" and the envelopes are made using the Envelope Punch Board starting with a piece of 6x6" DSP from the 2015-2016 InColour Paper Stack.

Here's some quick instructions to make the card box using the Envelope Punch Board.

Start with a piece of cardstock 8" x 8". Stamp on this if you wish. I have stamped some of the smaller images from Blooms and Wishes stamp set using Cucumber Crush ink.

Box 1

Place the top left corner at the 3.5" mark on the punch board. Score and punch.

Box 2

Move the top left corner I" to the left (to the 4.5" position) and score and punch again.

Box 3

Rotate the cardstock 90 degrees anticlockwise. You don't need to pay attention to the ruler at the top anymore, just line up each of the score marks and punch and score.

Box 4

Rotate and do this on the other two sides. Using a pair of paper snips, cut sideways on the bottom tabs so they fold inwards, and cut down on the top tabs so they fold downwards as shown.

Box 5

Use a bone folder to crease each of the scored lines, Apply adhesive to the outside of the bottom flap.

Box5a

Fold to close the side flaps over the bottom tab (place your bone folder inside the box and press down on a flat surface to apply pressure for better adhesion). The box closes with the addition of a belly band.

Stampin' Up! Blendabilities Techniques

I've been having a play with the Stampin' Up! Blendabilities, our new alcohol based markers in exclusive Stampin' Up! colours.

This one is just some standard colouring. I'm sure you have seen this Blended Bloom stamp around on LOTS of blogs, but it's a great one to practice your blending skills on.

Stampin' Up! Blendabilities Techniques using Blended Blooms and Four You by Claire Daly Melbourne Australia at www.clairedaly.typepad.com

In this next one, I have embossed my image from Bravo Photopolymer set in white embossing powder, and then coloured the embossing using my Blendabilities.  It's a great technique to use with dark coloured cardstock. I have also used  a new  Be the Star Stampin' Up! stamp set, which coordinates with the new Star Framelits.

Stampin' Up! Blendabilities Techniques using Bravo and Be the Star by Claire Daly Melbourne Australia at www.clairedaly.typepad.com

Another great technique to use with Blendabilities is to colour your embellishments. In this card I have coloured the adhesive rhinestones with the Rich Razzleberry Blendability marker.
