Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday!!
Here is a card I created for this week's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG80! The challenge was brought to us by the Trendsetter of the Week, the amazing Angela, and her challenge is to create a scene!!
There She Goes stamps really lend themselves to scene making, but I kept my scene really simple! I started by stamping the snowman and puppy from the newly released (and totally ADORABLE) Snowy Days and then masked it. I stamped the largest tree from Penguin Love three times behind the snowman and puppy, thus, creating a sweet winter scene!
I colored the entire scene with Copic Markers and then cut it out and embossed it using Square Nestabilities. I added some Rock Candy Distress Stickles to certain parts of the trees, the snowman and the "ground" for some sparkle. I love these Stickles because they aren't super shiny when it dries and it really has a cool look!
The layout is last week's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC305. The patterned paper is all from Everybody Loves Christmas by Echo Park Papers and I sewed each layer on my sewing machine. The Classic Red panel was stamped repeatedly with one of the snowflakes from Snowy Days using Real Red Ink.
The border was created with the Die-Namics Open Scallop Die and the sentiment, which is normally horizontal, was stamped so that the words stacked on top of each other (does that even make any sense?) and then cut and embossed with Circle Nestabilities and layered with Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. I sponged the edges of the sentiment panel, as well as the focal panel, with Soft Sky ink.
A bow of red grosgrain, created with the Bow Easy, and some white brads in the top left corner finish this card off! This was SO fun to make!!
