Well Hello There, I do hope you are all well.

This weeks Blog, looks at building a scene and making a larger card A5.


This cute set includes, a Squirrel, Hedgehog, and a Raccoon.

Also the Picnic Blanket, Picnic Basket, Tree and Water Melon.

(I think this would look beautiful in paste colours for a Baby's card.)

MFT A2 Rectangle Frames (largest Frame Die)

MFT Black & White Basics 6x6 paper Pack

Gina K Amalgam Ink (Black)

Alcohol Pens

Black Card Stock

Nuvo Crystal Gloss Drops ( Ebony Black, Red Berry)


Firstly I planned how my my scene would look.

Firstly I die Cut the Frame from Neenah 80lb card stock.

I then new what area I had to put my scene in.

 By laying my stamps down working out, were and what I needed to stamp first.

Then next step was to make sure the animals were on top of the blanket, this was achieve by stamping them first then, stamp on some masking paper and mask over the top before adding the Blanket.

 Stamping the Masks.

Once they were fussy cut out and placed over the animals/critters.

 I then placed the other elements of the scene.

I then stamped them and removed the masks to reveal that they look like there sitting on the blanket.

 From there on it was a case of colouring my image.

Using my Alcohol Markers.

I then cut another frame, first I cut it from orange card stock. But later change to black, as I felt it was more striking.

Finished Scene

 I Stamped the raccoon again and foam mounted him on top of the previous one. This brings him to the fore ground.

I then added the black frame, that i had cut using the A2 frame dies. Stamped My sentiment.

At this point I decided I needed to add more!

 In this insistent, I wish I had stopped, as I love less is more.

But no, of I went and  added the Water melon image, randomly on the card blank.

Then strips of Pattern paper, another sentiment and finally Nuvo crystal drops.

My New Motto is know When To Stop! 😆😆😆

Happy Stamping and Thank you for popping over
