IT'S A MAUVE CHRISTMAS

With the dreaded Halloween season being over (dry up those tears Curt), I can now concentrate on my favourite time of the year ... CHRISTMAS.
My first card this year is for my Mother-In-Law, who loves mauve.
I have been wanting to use these Flower Soft display globes since last year when I purchased them.  I can remember when I first began to stamp (over 13 years ago),
I was really intrigued with shaker cards.  And while I did manage to create a few,
they never quite looked 'right'.  Using these
display globes combined with Spellbinder dies, the results are quite pleasing.

The one problem I did have was trying to photograph the card.  No matter what
I did, I had a reflection of light that bounced off the globe.  
Anyway, I think you will get the gist of the card from the photos below.


It's difficult to see the image but I used an image from The Stamp Barn of
a deer looking at a bright star in the sky (I highlighted the star by using a tiny 
crystal bling).  I stamped the deer with Versacolour White and then
highlighted the entire image with Pearl-Ex.  Martha Stewart carrara marble 
tinsel glitter was used as snow inside of the globe.


One card down ... only a few dozen to go!

Thanks for stopping by.

"Only" a few dozen? You are such a positive influence on me! Tee hee! Love your card, Bonnie - that globe is gorgeous! Some things just are hard to capture by photo - my card today was difficult too. Thanks for sharing!

You really are amazing with these globes! And yes, my beloved Halloween is over (however, I was thinking of putting up another Halloween countdown clock so you could see it every time you visited for the rest of the year!) LOL Just kidding! Love the image you used on this one as well! Hugs, Curt

Super cool! And I just love the idea of blues and purples like this for Christmas!
