Close to my Heart Artbooking and Frosted paper

This is my version of a snow globe that is in our New Idea Book (avail 8/1/2013)  I used 5.9 inch glass cylinder with candle holder drop in (found at Micheal's craft stores)  I used the Artbooking cartridge to cut the snowflake boarder for the top, used the stamp set in Frosted Workshop on the Go Card making kit to stamp the trees, larger snowflakes and saying.  All paper used is from the Frosted paper pack.  The trees were stamped using Ponderosa Pine in 1 and 2nd generation.  The snowflakes are inked with Twilight.  I heat embossed the larger snowflakes with White Daisy embossing powder.  I added some stardust glitz gel to the small hanging snowflakes.
The inside of the drop in candle holder I sprayed with Krylon's silver webbing then sanded to make it look antiqued and paint peeling.  I used white glitter to fill the bottom of cylinder and shook it around so it was between the glass and the trees and snowflakes.  the static in glass and glitter helped it stick to the sides.  I used red line tape in very small amounts to adhere the paper cutouts to the inside of the glass.  I then added some battery tea lights.  It looks very nice in the dark.  It's hard to tell from the pictures.

Close to my Heart Artbooking Cricut Cartridge

The tree and butterflies were cut using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge

The circle doily and overlay were cut using the Artbooking Cartridge

The doily, paper bows and Blue icon were cut using the Artbooking cartridge.
The paper is a variety, the washi tape is from Anna Griffin, Ribbon is just a variety left over from other projects.  I also used silver spray webbing, several Close to my Heart inks and a variety of embossing plates.

Close to my Heart: Artbooking and Frosted paper pack

Christmas is my favorite time of the year and Close to my Heart's Frosted (Christmas) paper this season is fabulous.  I used chipboard to make the base of this.  The fence slates are 2.5inches by 12 inches.  The 2 base/cross pieces are 1inch by 12 inch.  I rounded the corners and covered the cross pieces in paper before attaching the slate/bigger pieces.  Once the fence slates had been attached I then applied the colored paper after I dry embossed two of the pieces for more texture.  All the cutout were done with Artbooking cartridge and I used the Flaky Friends stamp set to make the little snowman. Twilight ink was used for the edging, stardust and almond glitz gel was used for the sparkle along with clear bling and grey/black pearls.
