Convention!! And a christmas snowglobe shaker card

Wow! Just walked in after two days at convention and it's just been fantastic! Such fun. What a lovely bunch of ladies, not just from the UK but from France and Germany too. (And they speak English so much better than I can manage French and German). So much crafting, so much swapping and so many laughs, absolutely brilliant. I can't wait to go again next year.

You'll never guess where it's going to be?

Give up?

We're going to be at Disneyland Paris!! (Squeals of delight)

Want to come with me? Email me to find out how.

I'll post more about this year's convention over the next few weeks.

For tonight, here's another challenge from over at In Love With Stamping. For this month's sketch challenge we have a snowglobe file that you can download here.

And this is what I made with it:

Stamp sets: Winter Post, Serene Snowflakes, Sparkling, Four the Holidays
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Medium Window Sheet
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Whisper White Craft
Other: Dazzling Diamonds

The card blank is Baja Breeze cut using the In Love With Stamping snowglobe template but leaving it whole. I cut the card front (only) again, this time with the aperture, to use for the shaker sandwich. Using the Baja Breeze and Soft Suede markers direct to stamp I coloured the skaters selectively and stamped onto Very Vanilla card and then added some Dazzling Diamonds with a two way glue pen. This layer was adhered direct to the card front. Using the Whisper White Craft ink and the Sparkling wheel I stamped the snowflakes onto the Medium Window Sheet and adhered it behind the front layer aperture. The front layer was stamped with the sentiment in Not Quite Navy and snowflakes in Baja Breeze. The outer edges of a dimensionals sheet was placed all the way round the aperture on the reverse of the front layer and the snow (waste from punched borders) was added into the aperture before sealing to the front of the card.

Now I'm off to catch up on some sleep. Heehee
