Gnome Globe

Another card idea with  the Club Scrap 
Gnome stamps and Random Doorway papers.
This time i had an idea of making  snow globe and
I want to share with you how I did it.

As you can see there is embossed paper and a place 
left to stamp. How to do this?

Start with apiece of heavy cardboard
and a shape you want to use. As I want to make'
a snow globe,I choose a circle.
Cut the circle with your die cut machine.If you do not
get through,use your scissors to cut out the shape.
If you use cardstock that is too thin you won't get the shape.

Safe the cut out form, for it there is another technique you
can do with using both sapes.
Now you make the sandwich as follows:
Put the paper inside the embossing folder you want to use
and the cardboard on top of it. You have to see what
plates to use depending on the machine you have.
When run through the machine the paper looks like this:
embossed outside and the circle for the globe in the middle.
Use the circle again to cut out another circle
out of  an acrylic sheet (like from the wrapping of your
die).Here too if it doesn't come right out, use scissor.

With white acrylic paint I paint the porders of the acrylic
circle and the embossed panelforthe card.
On top of the acrylic sheet I added some drops of
glossy accent and also around the circle. 
On top some glitter to give it a real snow effect. 
The white border  of the circle also  hides the foam
 tape you have to put underneath to fasten 
the globe to the card.
The parceland the gnome stamp have been stamped
on shrink platic to fit inside the globe. You see the
difference of size after shrinking with the parcel.
I stamped with black archival and colored with
Tim Holtz distress markers.
Here you see a close up of the finished globe,
behind the gnome you see an embossed tree
of Michael Stong.

Here another version of the card:
Here in the globe you see a die cut tree and
 the parcel inside.
The snow flke is a Tim Holtz die.
And this is the inside of the card.

As you can see the stamps can be used in many 
ways and as I need more cards to send, I am sur
I  will come up with more fun ways to use the stamps.

Have a creative day!

Leuke kaart Hetty, ik ben gek op sneeuwbollen.
En je kabouter lijkt wel een beetje op de beroemde kabouter van Rien Poortvliet
