Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers

Good morning everyone...hope you are well on this beautiful Monday morning!! My three Grands are still sleeping so I'm up early to get a few things done. We are going to have a breakfast of biscuits and gravy,  fried ham, and sliced oranges so I hope they get up soon!!!

It's my turn to host the TLC challenge on Splitcoast and this week's challenge is to make a snow globe....I made mine using the Stamp Oasis Snowy Night stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps. It was stamped with Not Quite Navy onto white cardstock and glitter was added to the trees. The base is a half circle cut from Chocolate Chip and a white circle frame was covered with stickles. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker's Snowflakes and Stardust set and the red pearls and Baker's Twine finish it off. 

If you are lucky enough to have a snow globe stamp, by all means use it!!

You can even make a snow globe shaped card!
You can also make a snow globe out of a clear ornament, make a shaker card with a plastic globe, or make a real snow globe...what ever strikes your fancy!!

The main thing is to have fun!!

This is also for the Christmas Card Challenge to use non-traditional colors, The Dream Valley Challenge to make a Christmas project,  and the Allsorts Challenge to use blues and browns.
Thanks for dropping by...have a great day and I hope to see you in the TLC challenge!!!

What a gorgeous snow glob. That is a creative idea, when I saw the challenge I said "I do not have a glob or stamp of a glob".. But look how creative you are!! I must try this..:)
