I Gave It A Try / Edited To Add A Snow Globe

I am editing this post to add a snow globe I made for my three year old grandson , who: is in love with trains..... As most three year olds can be. 
I used my MakeIt Market Kit: Tinsel & Tags that can be used in so many ways. I bought the train at Michael's crest store, I couldn’t get the last part of the train to fit this time , I will in the next one. I gules it on an old cable lid. I don’t recommend using Glossy Accents for these because if you get any on the globe it won’t come off.  Can you see my frosted window.... I placed tape on the inside and added fine glitter . I am having so much fun with this kit!

I did the back side as well , since it’s a snow globe. Sorry about the glare. I see I added one tree turned the wrong way...see on the right.

As you can see I added too much glitter and it covered up some of my scene.

Hello, looks like I have not posted in a few days. I’ve made a few cards for some future DT post. Other than that I have been busy with family and friends and enjoying life. I have missed visiting many of your blogs, I am going to make time for that today. I hope you are all well.  

I made this card yesterday morning before heading out to one of my sisters for the day. We had so much fun, lunch, talking and cards... We both have large families so it was kinda nice with just the two of us. 

I used Autumn Hills Stamp Set for this card, and the top cross stitched layer is from my friend Joyce
( I have had this forever) I also used a few dies from Tinsel and Tags

 Not crazy about how my card turned out , but I needed to post something :)

 Have a  great day!

    This stamp is perfect for this MIM challenge.
    Love the warm feel of your card and the glitter is gorgeous!


  2. Your grandson is going to love his little train in the snow globe!! Great job with the MIM technique, I like your fall colors!

  3. OH how I love your 'stained glass' card, Marybeth... It is a pretty fall/winter scene shaker!
    AND, the snow globe ~ my goodness, that is such a beautiful gift idea, although I would have a tough time giving it away ;-)

  5. What a delightful snow globe! So perfect for a 3 yr. old! And I LOVE your Autumn shaker card! Such a pretty scene and layout!

  6. Love your snow globe with the train. Very creative. And, your MIM card is just beautiful. I am still scared to try this one--I don't want to stain my stamps. Love how you made it a shaker. It sounds like you are having fun and living it up outside of blogland. Good for you.

  7. Absolutely love the train inside the globe. What a great idea!

  8. Oh my heavens!!! That snow globe is absolutely amazing and adorable!! What little three year old boy wouldn't love this!! Oh anyone would love this! I can't wait to get home to play with this kit too! Your MIM card is stunning too!

  11. Wow your snowglobe is amazing. So much detail and I love the train.

  12. Adore the snow globe... what a lucky little boy! I like your card, too and hope to try that technique out. Just now noticed Major... I had a dog just like him as a kid, named Baron. Like Mary's lamb, he followed me to school every chance he could =]

  13. WOW Mary Beth, your snow globe looks amazing and how precious that you made it for you grandson!! :) Brilliant details and I'm sure he'll love it! Such a gorgeous card with your Fall colors and shaker style design!! I love it! Thanks for popping in to say HI!! Hugs & Smiles - *Vicki*
