So this morning I woke up at 5:45 thinking of what I could put in the Sweet Treat Cups…can you believe that's what I wake up to? My goodness, I knew I had to go back to work today and I had my alarm set, but not for THAT early…maybe subconsciously I knew I wasn't going to have much time for stamping today?
Anyway, I'm so happy that this is what I woke up to, because by 7 am I had made this card and I think it's pretty cute if I do say so myself! I've got another picture below to show you what it looks like when you shake it up (it's actually very sparkly in real life):
So here's what I did…I placed my cup upside down, and sprinkled in some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Next I poured in water, just about up to the top. I removed the sticky outer ring of the cup (hoping it would actually keep the water in, and hooray it did!!), and I stuck it onto a window sheet. I cut out the window sheet at the outside edge of the treat cup, than I stamped my trees (from Holiday Blitz) on white card stock. I placed my cup over the stamped images, and traced around the edge of the cup and cut it out…put a little adhesive on the edges and I was ready to go! Then I just created my card around it, using the new Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder, along with the Four Holidays set for the sentiment.
***added 12 hours after snowglobe was made – I deliberately left the cup resting on the window sheet side so the water would seep out if it was going to, and so far so good!! I'll update if that changes, but I think it worked!!***
Thanks for stopping by!
