Snow Globe and Bertie

Hello everyone, wow I can’t believe how quickly the weeks are going. I seen a few shops with all the Christmas presents and gift out so that has giving me the push to start making my personal Christmas card. I’m normally so rubbish and end up buying cards but not this year that’s the plan anyway!

So I just happened to see this stunning snow globe die on the Hobby Art website and I just had to get it. The die itself is huge and the snowman you can make with is super cute but I wanted it to stamp in the globe.


I decided to use one of my favourite stamps Bertie the snowman and stamp him in the globe, the great thing with this die is the size it can easily fit full size stamps onto it and that’s just great for us stampers.

As the snow man had a hat on and there’s some snow on the fence I had to use Fluffy stuff and after applying while it’s still wet sprinkle with fine flitter and then heat it with a heat gun the fluffy stuff will then fluff up with glitter on it.

Then for the sentiment I have used the Let it snow from the Winter’s snowflakes set.

Hope you all have enjoyed today’s post see you soon,
