Hi everyone, I hope you’re all keeping well. Can you believe it is the end of August already?? Where has this year gone! It also happens to be my sisters birthday – Happy Birthday Tegan xx
Tonight’s Caseing the Catty theme is the colours in the Trimming the Town DSP.
Although I do have this DSP, I decided not to use it and instead play with a stamp set that while isn’t new – it’s new to me! The stamp set is called Snow Front and is another of our scene builder sets. I have another of these scene builder sets called Water Front and I love it, definitely one of my most versatile and most loved. You can see some of the things I have made with that one here.
I’m sharing two cards tonight because I couldn’t decide which one to feature. The way I roll with these kind of scene builder sets is to just play and see what happens. So I got out the inks in the colours we were using, and some pre-cut banner pieces (I did have lots of shapes, but for both the cards tonight they both happened to use the Stitched nested label dies).
Once I had a couple of scenes I was happy with I turned them into cards. The Poppy Parade card uses a panel embossed with the 3D Scripty folder, where as the Misty Moonlight card uses the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. The ribbon is the In-Colour ribbon, and the poppy parade sprigs are cut with the Poinsettia dies. I am slightly obsessed with this little sprig die and it’s being added to everything lately!
I didn’t want to make them specifically christmas cards, so I just kept the sentiments quite generic .
I hope you have enjoyed these cards, do you like the scene builder stamp sets? I love them so I am certain I will be sharing more as the months go on.
If you would like to join in the challenge this week, just head to our facebook page and upload a pic.
Next up in tonights hop is Monique!
I love how you have used the same layout on each one yet they are different.
They look so different even though they have similar elements. You’ve created some lovely scenes with the stamp set.
Wow, these are fabulous! I love the little sprig detail too – it really takes any creation to a whole new level. Gorgeous use of the colours. I must use my set a bit more – I’m inspired after seeing your gorgeous cards!
I love the idea of just playing with these sets and seeing what comes of it – I find the sets a little intimidating as I am not a great artist. Your two scenes are beautiful and you’ve given them fabulous bases to sit on as well. I really like the blue wood grain embossed one in particular. Looking forward to seeing more such creations from you! 🙂 Siobhan.
oooh, I forget I have this stamp set! It’s so fabulous for scene building, and I love the little tableaus you have created for your cards.
