Visions of Sugarplum challenge

Lori has a challenge running right now to make Christmas or winter cards, you can find out all the details HERE on her blog.  When you stop by her blog check out her post after that one too, she did some really cute projects on that one too.  She is always sharing great projects.

Today I used a Hunkydory kit I bought at the bookstore last year and never did get around to using.
First up I gave a try at making another shaker card, oh my goodness they just don't seem to get any easier for me I always seem to have trouble putting these together, not sure why.  I used a stamp of a village and snowflakes from the kit, colored with markers, and added some snow and glitter pieces for my shaker bits. The snow globe was a die from the set also.

Hunkydory - cardmaking collection, stamps and dies
Spellbinders - circles to make frame on globe
Epoxy sentiment sticker

Next I used more stamps from the set, this set has parts of snowmen, right down to different facial expressions you can put on them and different size arms, so you can make little snowmen too.  I stamped these all out, colored them with markers and then cut them all out individually to put together these snowmen.

Hunkdory cardmaking collection- stamps colored w/markers
My Mind's eye - O' Christmas tree papers
Spellbinders - Labels eight
ART -C - Cardstock
Hot off the press - 4 Lacey Rectangle frames dies
Enamel accents - black for eyes and coal buttons

I am working on another I hope to share next time before the challenge is up :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

In the end your snow globe shaker looks perfect to me. They do take a little extra time and trouble, but how fun they are to receive! Your snowmen are adorable. Love their expressions and the Christmas tree paper.
