Kitty Snow Globes

Hello, everyone!  I'm back!  The hard drive in my computer has been replaced but I still have a lot of work to do to get some programs reloaded - I've had a lot of problems and it hasn't been easy!  But the good news is that I was able to restore all of my documents, photos, and digis!  I'm happy I do a back-up each night so I didn't lose any of them!  I did lose most of my internet favorites and some software programs that are no longer supported but I'll have to make due without them.

Before I share my projects today, I would like to welcome two new followers - Lena Fonkert and Stir Your Creativity - so happy to have you here!

I haven't had a chance to post all of the snow globes I made for gifts so I'll share three of them today. All three of them feature cats from Gerda Steiner Designs. The first one features Carol Cat #1 - I used the digi but I think it's available only as a rubber stamp now as I couldn't find it in the store in the digis.


I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut.  I added clear glitter (Stampin Up Dazzling Diamonds) to the white parts of the hat.  I die-cut the snowy landscape with Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes and made the sky with Distress Inks (Evergreen Bough, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch). I splattered some water to look like snowfall.

Here's the second one, using Carol Cat #2.  I used the same products but added Liquid Pearls for the snowfall.


Here's the third one, using Cat Catching Snowflakes.  I couldn't find this digi in Gerda's store, so I don't think it is available any longer. For the background I used a winter scene paper from The Paper Shelter. Again, I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and added clear glitter to the white parts of the hat and also on the snow and trees of the background paper.

  4. Glad your computer's doing ok, I think mine may be on its last legs I had a scare when I got home from MI, but by the evening it started up I think it missed me. The fan is making a lot of noise and that is what happened last time it crashed. I love your snow globe and your images are really cute
    This is so sweet. I love it.

  7. Love your snow globes! They definitely make a fun gift! I'm glad all your photos and digis were backed up. It would be really sad to loose all of them and something I should probably think about.
