Today I am sharing another scenic stamping card, only this time for kids or the kid at heart. The sets I used today are: In TentsScenic Selections, and Tree Scene (for the inside saying).  I started out by stamping all the images in memento tuxedo black onto white card stock then coloring using prismacolor markers before cutting out the extra pieces I had planned to pop up.  Once that was done, I stippled some Tim Holtz distress ink for the sky and ground as well as Stampin Up garden green for grass then layered before adding to a card with some Debbie Mumm designer paper.  I'm really happy how the card turned out especially since my migraines have acted up again.


Enjoy the hop! Come back each day and let us take you to the Great Outdoors. Get to work on the tutorials! Show us what you made by July 8th and check back on July 8th and check back on July 9th, 2016 to see if you won!!

Today I decided to go with a couple of simple masculine cards for any occasion.  I don't know about you but my guys don't like a lot of "fluff" on their cards.  

First up is a card dedicated to my hubby and late father.  Both enjoy cooking over the grill anytime of the year, but especially during the summer when the central valley usually is dealing with triple digit heat.  The less heat in the house the better.  After stamping images from Big TreesScenic Selections, and Tailgate Party, I colored everything using prismacolor and copic markers before stippling tumbled glass distress ink for the sky.  



My second card features the News From The Woods set.  After stamping the trees background twice onto white card stock, I then stamped the saying and animal images onto scraps before coloring using copic markers and punching out to adhere with glue dots.

I love monarch butterflies and love making them whenever I can and the two sets I used today are perfect to use.  I first stamped Butterfly Essence to create my background and then stamped the individual butterfly from Hello Butterflies on scrap white card stock.  After coloring using prismacolor markers, I cut it out and popped up over the background before stamping the saying, layering and popping up using dimensionals.

Today I am sharing a card using my favorite technique - scenic stamping by combining a couple of different sets: Dragonflies and Marsh Birds.  After stamping all of the images I had decided to use in memento black and coloring using prismacolor watercolor pencils, I stippled some Tim Holtz broken china distress ink along the bottom for the marsh water.  Once that was done, I then stippled some tumbled glass along the sides and top for the sky before layering the colored panel and adding it to a green card.
