Globecraft Memories

Hello!  Today I'm excited to show you some examples of a brand new idea from a company called Globecraft Memories!  Basically, you get a plastic dome and several die-cut frames to go around it, which you can paint and/or stamp on directly or cover with papers, as I've done with mine.  They even include a little diecut easel to place on the back of your creation to help display it!  There are 6 different configurations of frames in 2 sizes each, so the possibilities are endless!  The more I played, the more ideas came, so I'm sharing 3 examples today, all done in the same color scheme (Barb, these are for you!).   Here's my first:


supplies: white cardstock stamped several times with "Spring" from Hero Arts LL007 Seasonal Memories, peeled paint distress ink, various scraps of dps for frames, Hero Arts CL377 Be Happy for flower, grass, bees and sentiment, stamped in versamark onyx black ink on various scraps of dots, checks, and solids, white twine, pink pearls

And a detail shot to show you the dome, and that I popped several elements above the image with lots of room to spare under the dome:


Here's another one I made using the same configuration of diecut frames, just turned 90 degrees, and a favorite old stamp:


supplies: white cardstock, Hero Arts E3020 Sketch Tulips, stamped twice with versafine onyx black ink, watercolored, and then the flowers cut out and popped above the image, various dps, tiny buttons, pink organza ribbon

And one more, using another configuration.  These globes are wonderful to protect anything delicate, like these die-cut rolled roses that I used for this card.  Please excuse the glare; the domes really catch the light:



supplies: K&Company rose print paper from Susan Winget's Spring Blossom mat pad, Die-namics (mftstamps) rolled rose die-cuts, punched ferns/leaves, white lace, pink button, pink pearls

And another detailed shot:


For even more examples, see today's Lily Pad Cards post.  In order to join the challenge, you don't need to have these Globecraft dome products; just use a frame or a die-cut and some pop-dots to make your creation dimensional.
