Wobbling Again with Stampendous and Action Wobbles

AWBanner
The holiday season has only just begun, and the Stampendous/Dreamweaver team is already feeling wobbly! No...not from too much Christmas "Cheer", but from playing with these cute little Action Wobbles...


They look pretty boring, don't they? But they can make your projects spring into action with the tap of a finger! Suddenly your ho hum project becomes snow fun...like mine...

I used the Cling Snowglobe Gift image (which I'm sorry to admit that I really didn't care for when I first received it) to create a fun sticky note pad cover as a little gifty for friends (or for Santa to keep track of those naughty and nice lists). Stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento, the image was colored with Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils, and blended easily with gamsol and a paper stump.

 The snowglobe portion was stamped and colored twice, with the extra to be used as my Action Wobble element. The bottom of the spring was self-adhered to the main image, and the top was self-adhered to the underneath of the extra globe. So, with a flick of a fingertip, you get this...


I die cut three graduated sizes of Spellbinders® Grand Labels One from tagboard (bottom), aqua Bazzill Basics, and then pink Bazzill Basics (on the top). The pink piece was machine-embossed using the Stampendous/Dreamweaver Christmas Borders Embossing Folder, and Cardinal VersaMark ink was swiped over the embossed surface to highlight the design. A slit was cut across the top of this piece for the next step.

The image was cut around the outside with a bit extra at the top which I scored and folded 1/4 inch apart. A bit of Zip Dry glue was spread across the top before inserting in the slip of the pink piece, leaving that 1/4" gap of fold for the sticky note pad to be adhered underneath.

The tagboard layer was covered with a wash of white acrylic paint, and covered with Crystal Micro Glitter around the edges while still wet. To make sure that the glitter would adhere, I sprayed a mist of Krylon Crystal Clear Finish over the top.


When dry, all the layers were adhered, and the top embellished with a crinkle ribbon bow made from May Arts ribbon. Magnets could be added to the back to attach to a fridge or file cabinet, or the gifty can be left as is to set on the workspace...always at the ready for adding that nice...or naughty...person's name. Oh, and in case you were wondering...I love this Snowglobe Gift stamp image now! How about you?


To shake things up some more, here's our wobblers for today...
