Shaking it up for Christmas!


Over at the Crafty Sentiments Designs Inspirational Blog there is a special Advent Calendar to help you count down to Christmas.Every day there will be some gorgeous DT creations to get you in the festive mood.I do hope you drop by to take a look 🙂

Here’s my 1st December creation for you.

As soon as I saw the beautiful New Winter Skates  by Crafty Sentiments Designs I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her 🙂 I found this photo glitter dome in a local bargain shop and as luck would have it my little stamped beauty fitted it perfectly 🙂 Love it when a plan falls in place!!She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and to created some lovely dimension on the trimmings of her clothing I pulled out my Fluffy Stuff.This is an amazing product.To watch it as you heat is just pure magic – but then maybe I’m easily pleased or just need to get out more LOL.Also this is perfect for this project as once set it’s there.Needs to be with the rigorous shaking this will get!Here’s a pic of the back view with some patterned paper backing with a lovely Seasonal greeting :


And finally one with her all shook up :


Hope I’ve managed to capture the magic for you!It was quite some feat juggling everything,being quick with the camera and not getting too much glare off the dome 😉

    I’m just cruising through challenges looking at cards and saw this little skater in pink. I think she’s adorable. I love the image from CS and recently used her on a card myself! I think she’s fantastic looking in pink. I love your shaker dome idea and how you got to shake it, take the picture with the glitter still flying, and not get glare. Well…I think you need to win all of these challenges for that amazing feat. This is adorable and I wish you all the best this holiday season. Hugs, Gail

    I am in awe of this entire post! The dome is brilliant! Love the darling image. A sitting still pic is hard enough to get, but that flying glitter is over the top! Thanks for sharing this lovely at Top Tip Tuesday!
