Holiday Shaker Card and a School Project
What else is new - another last minute project from me .... This time I combined both teh sketch and the inspiration picture from Your Next Stamp to create this shaker card. The sketch really looks like a snowglobe to me and I love shaker cards, so I went to work.... And here is my result:
I used Paper Smooches stamps. The trees are actually green, you see this better below and its holiday confetti from Michaels, as are the little snowflakes. The snowglobe base is in real life more yellow, but looks like orange in the picture... I added wink of Stella to the white parts of the snowman's hat and that you can't see either...
Here you can see the green trees:
As luck will have it, my card fits the The Card Concept challenge perfectly
1.) A TAG or a CARD with a tag on it
2.) Snowmen, snow or any other "wintery" theme!
My card goes into the CAS category, of course.
I like it, its cute!
I am also linking this card with this weeks Simon Says challenge - Anything Goes
And now I wanted to share a project I made with my son on the weekend. I actually thought I would be done with those school projects by now, after all he is already in 8th grade. But he recently fractured his hand and needed help. The theme was Taiga Diorama and that is what we created:
I am always wondering what those poor parents do that don't have a ton of crafting stuff at home.....
I came out really cool, don't you think so? I for my part love it - It gotta be an A+ - what do you think?
