I am so excited to finally have the Scenic Selections set; especially since I have been begging for something like this for months now, so I have two cards to share with you today.
My first card uses the church from Christmas In The Country stamped in memento tuxedo black ink onto snow storm smooth card stock and colored with koh-i-noor pencils with a blender marker. I then stamped several of the smaller trees from Scenic Selections around the church and colored those the same way. Once all of my coloring and blending was finished, began to stipple Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink for the sky.
Once I was satisfied with all of my stippling, I layered the colored image onto MFP lily pad, morning sun and aqua light card stocks before adding some matching brads and flower soft. The card background is stamped in adirondak aqua using MFP New Pines stamp set. For a final touch, I added some birds from Scenic Selections as well as one of the butterflies cut out with the wings pulled up for added dimension. I also recently found a new challenge blog for scenic stamping called Craft A Scene and decided to make sure when finishing my church, it matched the Craft A Scene Flowers challenge requirements.
My second card also uses the Christmas In The Country set along with New Pines and the Scenic Selections, only this time using the moose image. I started out by stamping my card using the pine cone bough image in Adirondack lettuce ink before adding an embossed Tim Holtz bark border stippled with Tim Holtz brushed corduroy distress ink.
My main image was stamped in memento tuxedo black ink onto MFP snow storm smooth card stock then colored with koh-i-noor pencils and a blender marker. I then stamped several images from Scenic Selections onto scrap snow storm smooth card stock, colored, blended, then cut out to pop up later using pop dots. Once everything was layered, I added some vintage looking brads, some mahogany satin ribbon, and the popped up images. For the final touch, I stamped my saying from Get Reel in memento black.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day and don't forget to stop by each designers blog to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
