Day 9 – Shaker Snowglobe


Oh my goodness, did I have fun creating this great little scene for my snowglobe shaker tag to share with you today! I pulled out Mouse House to pair with the new Winter Burrow set along with the tall shaker dome die set for my snowglobe.

To create my tag, I die cut the main snowglobe shape from white cardstock and laid out my stamps to see what I could fit inside and what I wanted on the outside. I stamped them all and colored them with my copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside to create my shaker.!

I cut the frame 7 times from white cardstock and then I cut an additional full panel out of acetate for the shaker window. I glued 6 of the frames together and glued the acetate to the back of the final frame, after coloring it with my copic markers. Using distress oxides I inked up the background panel with blueprint sketch and tumbled glass. I spritzed it with water and then decided that I wanted snowy hills for my scene so I went back, die cut another panel and then used the hill dies to cut that down. 

I adhered all of my pieces and trimmed off anything hanging over the edge. Then I glued the snowglobe frame down and poured in some shaker bits and sealed it up. 

I really wanted to decorate the front of the snowglobe so I stamped a sentiment from Merry Christmas Senti-mini on the plaque die cut and glued it down. Then I added some more images and put clear blocks on top to let it all dry over night.

Isn’t this just so fun?!? I had a blast creating it and can’t wait to attach it to a special gift for Christmas.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
