Winter is Coming

Have you seen the new Snowglobe?  Sure you have!  

This is not for the faint of heart and you really have to be on top of your cuts!  However, the end result is STUNNING and well worth it.  I stuck to the image on the packaging so I could understand how it all comes together.  


My phone died but I did manage to get a few shots off before I had to plug it in!  Keep in mind you need to cut some of these a couple of times since you layer.  Next time I would just cut my watercolor paper 2 times. 


I feel like I'm in Austria looking at this!


I added dimension.


Here's where you layer with the lite up windows.


I used clear rock candy on all the trees, mountains and snow for that sugary look!


The Believe is from my new Woodland Winter stamp set cut and layered with the Labels Thinlit dies.


Another sentiment stamp from my new stamp set Woodland Winter.  For fun I cut the poinsettias with the new Mixed Media Christmas Thinlit then I coloured it up with Distress Crayons.


All the bits for the globe are water colored with Distress Markers.


I love this fun holiday die!  I hope this gives you some ideas for your holiday projects coming up.  After all... Winter is Coming!

  4. I saw this demoed on TV recently and thought it too fiddly but it looks amazing when assembled - it really does look like Austria or perhaps the main street in Banff looking towards the mountain. But whatever - it looks fabulous!! Anne xx
