PTI Blog Hop

It seems every time I pop in here, I'm apologizing for not being around much and here it is, another month has passed and yes, I admit it - I'm a terrible blogger! But at least when I get the chance, I do try to post something fun for you! And today is no exception!

It's once again time for the monthly Papertrey Ink blog hop! The theme is snow (we've already had snow here in NW Ohio - how about you?)

Here's my project:


These are the pieces that will create a banner - as soon as I get some ribbon!! I used the PTI Shaker Shapes - Snow Globe die and the Winter Snow Globe stamp set and dies. The base of the snow globes is Crystal Blue cardstock from CTMH, the outer ring piece is cut from Soft Stone cardstock (PTI) and the base is from white PTI cardstock. I tore some cardstock to create the snowy hills and there are some random snowflakes stamped on the blue in Fresh Snow ink. The trees and snowmen were stamped in gray and prisma glitter was added for some sparkle. I also added a couple of rhinestones to the base of each globe.

Here's a close up on one of the globes with the snowman


And yes, there's a lot of glitter that needs to be brushed off the pieces before they get hung up. I was running a little late getting this project done tonight so the glue is still a little wet and I didn't want to mess with the pieces too much for now. But they'll soon be all cleaned up and added to a ribbon for hanging.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

And if I don't see you in the next couple days, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
