This weeks new release is sassy "JJ - Candycane". I used the sketch from My Favorite Things to come up with this design.
When I saw the sketch this week, I thought of a snow globe. So I decided to make a shaker card. I thought JJ standing in front of the snow globe was perfect. I really love how it came out. I don't fussy cut any of my images, I use Sure Cuts A Lot to create cutting dies for all my digital stamps. I keep the digital stamp with the die cut file, this way sizing is never an issue. This image is imported into Design Space (DS), then I use Print Then Cut (PTC) to cut the stamp out.
I wanted something in my snow globe, I found an old CTMH stamp set, it was one of the workshop kits, and stamped my trees and sentiment.
I used fun foam to add the dimension. Using my MFT circle dies, I was able to cut the circle from the card front and the foam at the same time, so I didn't have any placement issues.
I then used a Spellbinders plain circle and the MFT inside/out stitched circle to make the frame around the globe. The base I just cut a strip about 5/8" wide and used a corner crop on each corner. I added a little faux stitching with a border die.
Don't forget that it's Christmas in July at Bugaboo Stamps, all images are 50% off this month.
The week long Christmas in July Celebration is July 15-21, 2017. There will be lots of inspiration and prizes.
