Happy Scenes for TSOT233

August 25, 2015 1 Comment

I had a great time playing with some of my pre-order goodies for this week’s Try Stampin’ On Tuesday design team creation.  I broke out Happy Scenes and the coordinating Hearth and Home framelits.  I’ve been so busy the last two weeks that I haven’t had much time to create.  With one week of band camp left, I hope to be back to a regular creating schedule soon.

Anyway, here’s what I came up with for the TSOT233 sketch.

This Happy Scenes card makes me happy with all of it’s possibilities to embellish.

I started with a Mossy Meadow card base and then added strips and a banner made from Merry Moments designer series paper.

Part of what makes this super simple card appealing is all of the texture created by layering. Use those dimensionals!

After cutting the Cherry Cobbler window frame with the Hearth and Home framelits, I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock just smaller than the die cut piece.

To make sure that my images would be “in” the frame, I lightly marked two easily erasable dots in the upper and lower right hand corners of the window.

Using the dots as a reference, I knew just where to stamp.

I tried out the new Basic Gray archival ink.  After coloring in the birds with a Real Red Stampin’ Write marker, I applied a light wash of Soft Sky ink to everything above ground level.

Next, I used Dazzling Details to add snow to the tree and a frosty edge to the lines defining the ground.  I sprinkled a little Dazzling Diamonds over this for extra definition.

Finally, I squirted some Dazzling Details on the snow/ground and spread it with my finger to add some subtle sparkle to the snow.

Happy Scenes and the Hearth and Home framelits (available September 1) made this card fun and easy.
