Guest Blog: Gumball Machine (Christmas)

Thank you for joining us for the “By Royal Appointment Guest Blog” post. This week’s project is a Halloween Gumball machine, designed by Hilary, featuring the Stampin’ Up! Snow Globe Scenes Dies (the featured picture on this post is the Christmas version of my card).

The Guest Blog is something we will be doing every Monday, each week we will be welcoming a different designer from our amazing team, the Royal Stampers, This week I was the guest designer, I hope you enjoy my earlier post…

In August I produced a Gumball Machine using the Still Scenes bundle, here I have produced a Halloween version of this card.

I have created a tutorial for the creation of this card which can be viewed on my YouTube channel. I hope you enjoy.

This card has been produced using the Monster Bash DSP (product code 150447). Take a look at the following video to see these lovely papers.

I love this year’s Halloween DSP, and look forward to producing more products in the next few weeks using it and the other wonderful Halloween products in the Autumn / Winter catalogue.

The sheet with the flying bat’s were used as the background layer and I have fussy cut one of the monster frames for the back to the dome. I have also created another card using the spooky newspaper print and one of the spooky castles. Here are both these cards.

I have also created a Christmas version using the Let It Snow DSP.

Here are three of my gumball machine creations (I think I may be addicted !).

My gumball machine card features a working sweet release mechanism, which releases a mini smartie (or equivalent sized small sweet) from the dome (the snow globe dome) to a sweet dispenser cup at the bottom of the card. Here is the clip from my earlier card showing this action.
