Guest Designer: Lisa Bizbiak!

Excited to be guesting up on the Trinity Blog one more time this month!  Today I’ve used the new Tall Shaker Dome Die Set along with the adorable Snowman Border Builder die set to create this little snow globe scene!

I love how this Dome die is tall and leaves a bit more room to do some really cool stuff.. it includes some sweet snow landscapes so it was easy to create a few layers of snowy hills.

I love to use white glitter paper for my snowy bits on a card… I don’t have snow where I am here in Sunny AZ, however I do hail from the Western NY area (think Buffalo) so I know how pretty snow can be when it sparkles in the sun!  (If only it wasn’t also SO cold!).  I cut the dome and base pieces from gold metallic mirror cardstock and the inside back layer from some cloud design paper.

I added the buildings, tree, and fence that come in the Dome set way up on the hill and in front… a couple of those adorable snow dudes!  I love these guys!!  I always cut extra parts/pieces when I cut them and have them all saved in a little clear bag for future use.  My fine tweezers come in so handy for all of these small die cut pieces.

I couldn’t help but add a little string of lights from the Gingerbread House set.  I LOVE these lights…lol!  I should just stamp and die cut hundreds of them to add to every card I make!  I added little dots of Glossy Accents to each bulb.

Another must have in my craft room is the Merry Christmas Senti-Mini Die Set… used alone or with the included background piece and with or without the coordinating stamp set… it’s a fantastic set!

I finished it off with some gold/white twine, a snowflake from the I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas Embellishment Mix and my new very favorite sequins, Soapy Bubbles (very few cards make it out of my craft room these days without a few of these on it).

So thank you so much for visiting me here today!!  And huge thanks to the ladies at Trinity for having me this month!  I’ve had so much fun and they’ve been so great to create with!  Be sure to come back here soon and often for lots of inspiration from this very talented group of artists!
