Paper Adventures Team Hop | “S”

Paper Adventures - Blog Hop Header
Hello September!  Which also marks the start of SPRING here in Australia.  The weather is warming up, the days are longer and I couldn’t be happier about that fact.  It’s felt like a very long & cold winter!!!
You’re joining us tonight for the September installment of our Paper Adventures team blog hop.  In honor of SSSSSeptember and SSSSSPring, the theme is “S”.  I can’t wait for you to see what everyone has made.  We welcome our guest designer Tina Gillespie.  Tina has the greatest sense of style and I love her quirky cards.  Click on the next button below to visit Tina’s blog.
I’ve created a Snow Dome Shaker Card to share with you.  I almost overlooked this bundle in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue because I don’t have a need for many snowy cards at Christmas time.  But then I got to thinking about all the cool snow globes my kids have collected over the years – fairies, animals, places – and it occurred to me that I didn’t need to make it snow at all.  Then Lou Kitzelman did a fabulous post with so many great ideas that I knew I’d made the right decision.  See Lou’s snow globe post by clicking here.
Everyone loves an interactive card, so this Snow Globe is for a big kid – using one of my favourite DSPs (Pressed Petals DSP).  This DSP is part of the buy 3, get 1 free promotion this month.  And even though, being a specialty DSP, it’s the most expensive on the list, you can choose it as your free pack – how awesome is that???  See all the B3G1 DSP options by clicking here.

The layout is CASEd from the catalogue (page 43) – I love how the banner fits so nicely with the snow globe.  All the snow globe pieces are from the Snow Globe Scenes Dies.  There is also a coordinating stamp set (Still Scenes stamp set) which has snow globe outlines and a stamped base.

The card is filled with shaker pieces – butterflies, stars & sequins.  The butterflies are from the Butterfly Beauty Dies, the stars from the retired Star Border Punch (I will never part with this!) and the sequins from a set in my collection (also retired no doubt!).

The Snow Globes are so easy to put together – like crazy easy!  Cut the pieces with the dies, add a Snow Globe Shaker Dome and construct your card. The domes have adhesive on both sides, meaning no glue mess – I love the simplicity with the wow factor.

The sentiment for this card is from the Wonderful Moments stamp set.

With the dies and domes doing all the hard work for you, snow globe cards are quick to make.  I was able to whip one up in 20 mins for a birthday party we went to last week.  It’s a perfect theme for any style, age or event!

  1. Sensational! You have totally sold me on the need to have these not-necessarily-snow globes in my life. I just love the way that Pressed Petals DSP looks under the dome – it looks even more realistic and 3D. A perfect choice. Love, love, love!! 🙂 Siobhan.

  2. Aww, thank. your for the lovely introduction, and the invitation to join your hop 🙂

    Your cards are absolutely gorgeous! I love the mix of shaker elements in the first, and the stars in the second make me think of sugar lolly stars. The colours are so sweet!

  3. Oh Kelly this is amazing especially as its been done not using a snow theme. You have almost convinced me to buy this bundle now. Beautiful.
