Last Tuesday, May 22nd, I was the Featured Designer over at SpeedyTV by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company and I was asked to do a tutorial on Scenic Stamping after the May release blog hop using Scenic Selections. If you haven't had a chance to check out the tutorial on SpeedyTV, here it is again.
Stamps Used: All Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company
Christmas In The Country
Scenic SelectionsNew Pines
Prismacolor Blender Marker
MFP Card Stock
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Forest Moss
Flower Soft Summer Mix
1) Start by stamping the church from Christmas In The County in memento ink onto snow storm smooth card stock.
2) Take the large trees from Scenic Selections and stamp in memento ink next to the church overlapping the branches if necessary.
3) Stamp the large fir trees from Scenic Selections in various spots around the church to help fill in some of the "gaps".
4) Next, take the medium fir tree, stamp only the top half of it near the bottom of your scene. Stamp additional images in scene if there are any gaps you want filled in with trees.
5) Stamp bird trio from Scenic Selections in sky area and butterfly onto scrap white card stock to cut out and add to scene later.
6) Color your images and scene, blending colors as needed. Stipple Tim Holtz tumbled glass distress ink lightly for the sky and forest moss around the edges of the "ground" to fill in.
7) Next, stamp pine bough from New Pines onto aqua card stock in Tim Holtz broken china distress ink and stipple around the edges to give the card itself some dimension.
8) Layer colored scene, add brads, then add to the stamped card.
9) Add Flower Soft© into bare trees to change the trees look from winter to spring/summer. Add tops of grass images, if desired, stamped in Tim Holtz forest moss distress ink in remaining gaps.
10) Cut out butterfly and add using glue dots, pinching the wings up to give it some dimension and to finish your project off.
I hope you give this tutorial a try. Scenic stamping is really fun and not as hard as it looks.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend.
