I don’t know about you, but I struggle to create those adorable scene cards that are so popular these days. Obviously, I don’t have all of the stamps/dies that card makers use to create these complex scenes, but I certainly have enough to work with to make a simple scene. I decided to give it another try.
I started by making a very simple ink blended background using Broken China, Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint Distress Oxides. For the clouds and sun, I pulled out my never used Gina Marie Designs nature set. I didn’t want the clouds to disappear in the sky, so I inked the edges with the Broken China Distress Oxide ink pad. To give the clouds a bit of dimension, I adhered one of the small clouds with foam tape.
My Favorite Things Doodle Blossoms stamp/die set has been on my wishlist for a very long time. I finally bought them and knew that they’d be perfect for this card. I stamped the flowers and one set of stem/leaves and colored them with Copic markers. To give the flowers a bit more detail, I used a white gel pen. For the other two stems/leaves, I used Paper Smooches Best Buds and Simon Says Stamp Best Mom Ever stamp sets. I attached the flower blossoms with foam tape to give the scene more dimension.
All that was left was the sentiment. Inspired by Stamping’s Magnolias stamp set had the perfect greeting. I heat embossed “Live Life in Full Bloom” with black embossing powder and called it done.
I hope you like it!
