Snow Globe Ornament

This month in technique club we made this adorable card with a detachable snow globe ornament.  Here's how the ornament is made.  Below are step by step instructions.

Pieces of snowglobe cut out. RED:  Cut (2) 3” circles.  Cut globe center in one of the circles.  With cutout piece, cut out bottom of snow globe base.
WHITE:  Cut (1) 2-3/4” circle
SPARKLE GLIMMER:  Cut 2-3/4 scallop circle.  Cut globe center in center.  With cutout piece, cut out scrolled bottom of base

 Stamp and color image on white circle.  Glue white
circle to red
Gently place about 1/4 tsp glitter and pinch of sequins to center.

Remove back adhesive backing on snow globe back and attach to top/center of circles, leaving bottom as shown

Remove adhesive backing on front of snow globe and attach twine to top

 Attach cut out red circle to front of globe, making sure edges match around circle.

 Cut out small opening on bottom of shimmer paper. If glimmer paper not used, this step is not necessary.  This way the glue will be able to adhere when adding the base of the globe.

Glue scalloped circle around the globe as shown

 Glue scroll base to red base

Glue base to circle

Add bow with glue dots sticking most of it to plastic for it may not stick well to glimmer paper.

Poke hole in center/top of assembled pool party piece about 1/4" way down.

Loosely secure brad, then attach to base card.
I hope you will make a snow globe card....not just for Christmas or winter.  Could also be made into a baby card, or birthday, or any occasion.  Recipients will love it (and won't stop shaking it)!

Northern Lights

Technique Time -- Northern lights is a favorite of mine and my friends.  It can be done so many different ways ... here is one rendition.

Mask bottom with painter's tape or post it note.  Using sponge or dauber use yellow (this one is crushed curry, we also used pineapple punch ink in class) and swoop up a couple of times).

Next, do the same with rich razzleberry.

Repeat again with granny apple green.

Sponge over everything with night of navy, darker on the outside edges leaving the middle slightly lighter. After sponging spritz lightly with a mixture of rubbing alcohol (or water) and champagne mist shimmer paint over the top.  It will give it a look of stars (see pic below for results).

Remove mask.

Add stamping (sentiments and images)
Experiment with different colors.  Bermuda bay works as one of the swishes.  The direction of the swishes can also be sideways for a different look.  Give it a try!
