Scene building with crafting tools has been one of my favorite parts of card making. I created grasses and clouds by ink blending over Keeway’s Grass Scene Stencil with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio.
While I was waiting for inks to dry, I stamped out the images from Learning from home stamp set with Memento rich coco dye pink and colored with copic markers. I die cut them using the Matching dies and arranged them onto my A2 sized background with liquid glue and foam tapes. At last, I stamped the sentiment “Thank you..” and embellished the card with Stardust Enamel dots.
I can feel the holidays are approaching, can you?! As you scroll down the post, you’ll notice I’ve made the rest of my cards Christmassy. To prepare my background, I laid Inky Stripes Stencil over an A2 sized card base and blended Black Soot Tim Holtz Distress ink over.
I gold embossed the sentiment from Essential Sentiments Stamp set over black card stock paper, then cut into an rectangular piece over gold embossed mat. I arranged this centerpiece using Foam tapes over the prepared background.
To decorate the sentiment piece, I stamped couple images from Poinsettia Stamp set and die cut with the matching dies. I copic colored them and placed onto two corners of the centerpiece.
The holiday spirit just continues! For making this card, I combined multiple stencils we are releasing in this month. I created the circle using Spotlight Circle Stencil with Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink, then I added trees using Keeway’s Mountain Scene Stencil with Lucky Clover distress oxide ink. I splattered white paints to create a snowy day and added pink stripes onto the background using Inky Stripes Stencil with Picked Raspberry distress oxide ink.
To add the characters, I stamped the mice from Fa-La-La Stamp set and die cut with the Matching Dies. I added sentiment “Fa-la-la!” to the scene and end with Stardust enamel dots.
Here comes the last one. What a joyful scene. I picked out 3 fun holiday colors: Pink, Green and Blue and blended them over Keeway’s Mountain Scene Stencil to create my background patterns. Then I stamped images from Happy Gnomes Stamp set and die cut with the Matching dies. I copic colored them and arranged them onto the background. I want my sentiment to be simple over this crowded scene, I stamped “Merry xmas” from Holiday Cheese Stamp set and it worked out perfectly!
