A Snow Globe, Gingerbread Men and a Rosette!

Hi fellow stampers!   Here are 3 cards I made in between baking for various Christmas celebrations this week!

First up is a fun snow globe - made for the Try a New Technique challenge over on Split Coast - to make a snow globe!  I cut a circle Nestability, stamped George the Snowman, colored him with Copics and then inked the image with my Palette Glue Pad and covered it with Dazzling Diamonds.  I embossed the card base with Swiss Dots.  I used the SU Key Tag punch for the base of the globe.
 Next is my card for Cindy's SCS Teapot Tuesday Challenge - which was a gingerbread man teapot.  I made a Many Thanks card and used my many gingerbread men stamp for it!
And finally my card for the SCS Color challenge -  a birthday card with a paper rosette flower.
Ok -   enough distraction!   I'm off to wrap some presents!

love the fun snow globe, Julia! and what's not to love about the gingerbread guys...great use of that yummy color too, it invokes the whole gingery smell of cookies baking in the oven for me.

And again a nice job with this weeks CC...those are some hard colors for me.

Hey Julia! Love the technique of covering the image with glitter. The second one is my absolute favorite. Love how you did the scoring on it. Your 3rd card is beautiful and the crispness of the scoring on the flower is just beautiful. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Best, Curt
