This is my very first glass block ever. I never made one before because I was afraid of the drilling part to get a hole in the block so the lights could be fed through it. Well at Michael's they have glass blocks with a nice size hole already in it. And there is a plastic cap to cover the hole too!!! I am SO loving these glass blocks now!
I used the "Snow Much Fun" set on this block. What I did here was I cut a piece of Vellum to fit inside the glass block. Because the hole is big enough you can add and remove the vellum with ease. I may just make a file to keep the stamped vellum squares in and just reuse the block for other occasions. Every season (when I'm done with them all) I can just go to the file and pull out the one that is needed for the holiday and set the block out on display!! That's the plan anyway!!
I stamped the images using black StazOn. And then I colored the images with colored pencils. That is how I was able to get the snowmen SO white! I made masks of the snowmen and then stamped the tree on. I left the masks on and sponged the sky and ground in.
When I was all done coloring and sponging I used some glitter Stickles to add some sparkle and dimension to the images and snow. Click on the image for a closer look at the glittery parts!! I may give this as a gift and get another block. Michael's has a 50% off coupon this week!!! I bought this block a few weeks back and I think it was only $9 or $10 without a coupon. Of course I got mine with a coupon!
These are SO much fun to decorate. I want to make another one, hopefully I can do it before Christmas. But I can always make a wintry looking scene that I can keep out WAY after Christmas! These don't take long to decorate either. Well, they do take a bit of time if you cut out every piece to make a mask!!!
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
