Snow Globe

Hello, and thanks for popping in today.
It was one of those weeks again when all the good crafting intentions just didn't happen, and I'm just getting round to show another card from last weekend.
I don't know about you, but I often buy a magazine just for the free stamps - they might come in handy, or so I tell myself, but more often they sit un-inked.  This snow globe is from a set from last year and it fit perfectly over the Inkylicious Winter Cabin.  Glossy Accents and lots of glitter to the base, popped up with foam pads.  The background is an old Papermania stamp and then a sprinkling of Chunky White embossing enamel to finish.

Well that's another for the box, but the little bell means it won't post.

Just a quick post, and hopefully I be around to do some catching up.

Avril xx

Lovely card, and the stamp is stunning. I have a lot of un-inked stamps, too!
Have a good start in the new week, hugs, Valerie

It looks like all these stamps were made to be used together. I see what you mean with freebies, but some of of them have become my favorites. Others still need to see ink. But this card looks wonderful.

Such a nice stamp and lovely how you created the carte with it. Great design.
Dear Greetings

I'm guilty of buying magazines for the freebies too! I think I might even have that snow globe which is unused....these 2 certainly look made for each other:-)

It is beautiful, it makes you want to shake the globe and see the snow fall.
I think many of us buy magazines for the stamps and they sit for months to be used.
