Snow Globe Shaker!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and enjoying your Sunday.
We are enjoying a quiet day here at home, not gallivanting anywhere just a wee bit of food shopping and catching up with things around the house.

The concert we attended last night was excellent, Mahler has composed the most wonderful music and the small orchestra who performed  were brilliant. It was a lovely way to spend the evening. Not comfortable though as the venue as in the cathedral, not comfy seats, my back was aching at the end, but I guess old churches were not built for comfort. However the acoustics were terrific.

Thank you all who have visited me and left comments on my last card, you are all very kind and I do appreciated each and every comment.

I have something new to share today, it's a first for me, might be a last too as it was so fiddly, a snow globe card;
All the stamps used are from Creative Stamping magazine, it's a lovely selection of stamps this month. The globe is heat embossed with WOW silver powder and painted with Starlight paints around the rim of the globe. Sentiment embossed also with WOW powder.
 Fawns are coloured with pencils and a little sequin as a bauble. Papers are from First Edition Silent Night and Centura Pearl card in Platinum. SB Decorative Circles to mat the globe on to.
Embellishment Attic Snow and Ice inside the globe to make the shaker.

The globe is a wee bit rough and ready, but it doesn't look too bad I think.

I don't do many challenges but I thought I would it into;

Well that's me for today, a wee bit of ironing to do then a bit of a sit down with my book before getting the dinner sorted.
Take care of yourselve and enjoy what's left of the weekend,

A very pretty Christmas card Kate, I love the colours you have used and the addition of the sequins.
I too have just recently made a card, using the exact same stamps. A great set of free stamps! Have a good week Kate.

The musical part of your outing sounds delightful...but not the seats...your poor back!

This is such a pretty card. Love your design...lots of layers and you have created such a sweet snowglobe.

Thanks for taking part in the Sept Rudolph Days Challenge.

Sue said...

Hi Kate, a snowglobe makes the best shaker card, after all it is supposed to snow, right! Love the silver and the sweet deer. I recently got a fuse tool, and it makes making shaker cards so much easier and seals all that glittery stuff in tight, love it. Beautiful card.


Erika said...

Hi Kate, I've joined you all with the Rudolph challenge today, get me doing Christmas cards before December! LOL.
I think your snow globe is beautiful, love the little fawns too.
Hope you've had a good day today?
It's getting more Autumnal here. Brr! Soon be putting the heating back on.

Happy crafting, hugs Erika. x
