Hey, thanks for coming by. I’ve been inspired by some of the amazing scene cards I’ve seen by Ingrid Blackburn lately. She makes scenes that look so real, they take my breath away! I created my own layered scene card, and I can’t wait to show you how to make it.
I die cut my panel with the Stitched Rectangle Dies from Simon Says Stamp. I’m using Bristol cardstock from Canson, but any paper will work. I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink with a Mini Ink Blending Tool, to half of the cardstock. Then I stamped my sentiment with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. But I stamped it crooked, so that’s why I inked the rest of the cardstock and stamped it again. Today I’m using the Winter Village Stamp set by Papertrey Ink.
The only inks I used today are Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. I used all three shades to stamp the house, and cut it out with scissors. I stamped the trees with Mermaid Lagoon, and fussy cut them as well. There are dies that match this stamp set, but I don’t have them. The die set also comes with 3 special dies to add snow to the houses. I drew a wavy line on the roof with a Ranger Embossing Pen, and colored it in. Then I added white embossing powder and melted it with my heat tool.
I cut out two hills from more Bristol cardstock, and die cut them with the same Stitched Rectangle Die. Next I stamped the path and the water. The water didn’t stamp smoothly, so I used my Waterbrush to soften the color. After it dried, I added the skaters in Broken China Distress Ink.
I added the tallest hill to the panel with foam tape. On the house, I added foam tape at the top, and tape runner at the bottom so it sits level on the card. Can you see both adhesives on the back?
The bottom of the hill doesn’t quite reach the bottom of the blue panel, but that’s not a problem. I folded a piece of foam tape in half, making it a double layer. Next I cut the folded tape in half, and added it to the bottom of my panel. Now I have a double thickness, and the second hill will be level.
I added the second hill to the card, and attached the pine trees with more foam tape. This card has a lot of dimension, so I kept everything else simple. I did add some shimmer to the snow with a clear Wink Of Stella Shimmer Pen, but that’s it.
Have you ever made a scene card? What was in your scene? Let me know in the comments, and I’ll be back again soon!
