A Breath of New Year Air

I made a much smaller bauble than this one for The Craft Stamper Christmas Decoration Art Call, and I was so lucky to have it selected for publication. So I thought why not make a larger and different one to see in 2017! I made this especially for Indigoblu, and you can see lots of other wonderful projects by the Indigoblu International Design Team here.

I found a box of inexpensive baubles in Hobbycraft which separated in half. Which are just perfect for this project.

I began by stamping the dog from the Indigoblu Clumber Park Stamp set, and fussy cut him. Being sure to leave tabs under his feet as these will be pushed into the snow later.

I die cut 2017 from Shrink Plastic and shrunk it with a heat gun, but this can also be done in an oven.

I mixed texture paste and Unicorn sparkles together and spooned it into each side of the bauble. I had gathered some thyme from the garden and used this as winter trees,

I stood the dog into the back half of the bauble a long with some thyme.

I hung the 2017 onto the trees branches, and added a dab of glue to help keep them in place.

I stood the New Years tree into the snow in the front half of the bauble. When both sides were dry I pushed them together, and hung it with a white ribbon.

Thank you so much for visiting me today : )

Clumber Park


I was surprised and delighted to have won the Indigo Blu Challenge. I was invited to be a guest designer for this months theme which is "May All Your Dreams Come True"

I used the lovely Clumber Park set for this scene, which I choose for my winning prize!

In my dreams I am healthy and able bodied and my beloved dog Tammy would still be with me. We would be walking together through this beautiful park. That really would be all my dreams come true!


I used a lid from a round box for the base. I stamped the lovely dog, ducks and the reeds, and carefully cut them out.

I added some brown fun flock to the top of the reeds, to give them a more realistic look.


I die cut a tree and covered it in gesso and painted it with water colours. I also coated the box lid with gesso and painted it. I made a little lake on the top of the box, and filled it with glossy accents to give it a watery glossy look.


I glued the flying ducks onto some thin wire and poked the wire into the top of the lid, so they could fly happily over the lake.

A view from above.


Thank you for visiting.
