Canvas Corp: Spring "Snow" Globe

Hi everyone! Today I want to share a musical snow globe that I have altered for the Canvas Corp blog. I found the globe sitting in my husband’s study window, all the water evaporated and the base and the “winter scene” bleached from the sun. I thought this would be fun to give the globe new life by altering and creating a Spring scene inside. For the complete blog post you can find more photos and the how to’s HERE.

Spring Snow Globe Baby

Hi everyone! I am here to share a very quick post with my Eileen Hull’s Art with Heart Challenge project…with only hours to spare I might add…YIKES! 
The bases of my project started with this empty jar that had Prima flowers in it. I thought wouldn’t it be perfect if I could somehow turn it into a snow globe??? After much thought and looking at my different diecuts I thought the Cookie Box die would make a perfect  base for the snow globe. I cut it from Mat Board , grungy looking cardstock, printed the Tinted Babies printable and fussy cut out and then added embellishments. Below is the finished results. 

I did center and trace the lid from the bottle on the diecut and then used a box cutter to cut a hole in the center. It fits perfectly and all I did was add a little bit of glue to keep it from coming out of the cookie box.

I also used the Holiday Greenery Die to cut the small flowers and leaves out. It added the perfect touch to the snow globe.

On a side note…I am almost finished with my NEW craft room/studio!!! It has taken almost a month and I am so ready to get all my craft supplies out of boxes and into shelves and cabinets! My parents have helped with the whole process which I am so thankful for them. This morning they brought my drafting table that I used in college to the house. I am loving the fact that I will have a table for my computers, printers and other electronically stuff on one wall and my drafting table will be facing the window so I can look outside for inspiration. 🙂 I think I will also have enough room for a small table  to put in the center of the room in case I want to have friends over to craft with me. 😉 So if you have been wondering why I have been missing in action that is why. 🙂 

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Ornament Blog Hop: Wish Snow Globe

Hi everyone! It finally hit me that Christmas is just right around the corner. I have lots of projects and swaps that I’m working on and I’m running out of time…YIKES!!! But I do have this adorable project that I have just finished using a SmoothFoam snowman body and Robin’s Nest products that I would like to share. This snow globe is for the “An Ornament Blog Hop” linky party that The Robin’s Nest and SmoothFoam are hosting. So please be sure to hop on over to the Chattering Robin’s Blog and checkout everyone else’s creations using Robin’s Nest and SmoothFoam product and be sure to become a follower of each blog for a chance to win prizes…now who doesn’t love prizes??? I know I do. 🙂
I used an old Tostitos creamy spinach dip (1 lb. 7 oz.) jar which I had no problem cleaning out. 🙂 The lid I gessoed and once dry painted with turquoise paint and then seal with Mod Podge. Next I gessoed the snowman body twice and then painted white paint. I lightly penciled in eyes and mouth and then painted with black paint. Load pink paint on a brush and “pounce” most of the paint off onto a piece of paper and then “pounce” the rest on the snowman for cheeks. While all of that is drying I took a small piece of sculpey clay and created a “carrot” nose and then I followed the baking directions on the side of the package. Once the nose has baked and cooled adhere it to the snowman. I poked tiny holes and added a bit of glue to the twigs before I added to either side of the body and I glued three dew drops down the front of the body too.  Now comes the fun part…GLITTER!!! I sponged Mod Podge to all of the snowman and then sprinkled glitter all over. Let dry.

Next I cut a 1/8″ strip from AquaMarine Glitter Sorbet Cardstock to make a scarf. Cut to fit around the neck and glue. Now cut four small pieces and curl the ends with a pair of scissors and glue to the side of the neck and add a Pearl Dew Drop to top it off. Then lightly  Mod Podge the scarf and add glitter.

For the hat it needs to be cone shaped. I free handed a pattern and once I got it the size I wanted it I traced it onto a vintage sheet of music and cut out. Now roll up to make a cone and then adhere. Also add tinsel around hat and glue to the head.

Take the lid and adhere a smaller lid to the inside.

Draw a circle slightly bigger than the lib onto felt and cut out. Then adhere to the inside of lid over the smaller lid. Now adhere the snowman to the top of the smaller lid and then sprinkle shaved ice glitter over the felt.

Now screw the “globe” over the snowman, add shear ribbon around bottom and tie off.  Adhere dew drop, button and Winter Glitter Chipboard Snowflakes together. Once dry Mod Podge and sprinkle glitter over the snowflake and then glue to the middle of the bow.

I adhered together a wooden snowflake, medallion (made from AquaMarine Glitter Sorbet Cardstock), Winter Glitter Chipboard Snowflakes, button and jingle bell. Lightly Mod Podge and add glitter. I added a Pearl Dew Drop to the tip of the snowflake “arms” and then glued to the top of the “globe”.

Cut out four banners, Mod Podge, add glitter and let dry. Print the word WISH, cut apart and adhered to the banner. Thread onto baker’s twine alternating between beads and banner. I’m so please with how it turned out!!! I can’t wait to now display it on the mantel along with all my other Christmas decorations.
