We can’t wait to see your creative Create a Scene projects! This challenge will be open until Sunday, May 2 at 11:59PM ET. Have fun!
Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Create a Scene Challenge! Scene cards are some of my most favorite cards to make. I love combining Lawn Fawn sets to create a little story, and I combined a whole bunch on this one!
The star of the show is the hippo from Year Four. It’s his birthday and his friends have thrown him a party! I pulled images from Year Two, Critters in the Jungle, Chit Chat, A Bug Deal, Toadally Awesome, Bicycle Built for You, and Party Animal. I colored them all with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.
To build my background I die cut the frame from Bayou Backdrop from some Noble Fir cardstock, the pond from Mermaid, and the Grassy Border from Cilantro. I added some waves in the pond with the Ocean Wave Accents and slipped the hippo into the largest one. I glued the grassy panel first to my Sticky Note card base, then added the pond with the hippo, then the frame. Then I adhered the rest of my images to complete the scene.
I added an Everyday Sentiment Banner stamped with Plastic Flamingo ink, and finished off the card with a little Stardust Stickles.
I also finished off the inside with another party guest stamped in Sunflower ink. You can check that out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.
If you haven’t had a chance to play along in our Create a Scene challenge yet, there’s still time! I can’t wait to see what you create!
Hi Friends! Caly here! The current challenge theme is Create A Scene and I think it’s a fun one that many will love. This challenge runs through May 2nd, 2021 at 11:59PM ET so be sure to link up your projects! I hope my card today inspires you. I love interactive cards and had fun creating this Toadally Awesome card!
I began by stamping and coloring my Toadally Awesome images with Copic markers.
Pinks: RV21, RV23, RV29, R20
Greens: [G12, G14, G09], [YG05, YG09, G09]
Blues: B000, B02
Browns: E31, E34, E37
After coloring and die-cutting my images, I worked on my scene first by creating my background. I used the Scene Builder Stencils: Bayou to ink-blend, first the vine with Noble Fir Ink, then the leaves with Jalapeno ink. Then to add more color, I ink-blended a layer of Merman ink over the bayou canopy.
I needed to create a pond piece that would cover the interactive mechanism, so I die-cut a piece of Moonstone cardstock using a stipple die from the Palm Tree Border die. I then ink-blended it to add some depth using Fish Tank ink.
If you haven’t seen the Intro to Swish ‘n Pop video, be sure to check it out! It’s a great video showing you how to use the interactive Swish ‘n Pop Pull-Tab dies! After putting together my mechanism, I put my pond panel over it to cover it up.
I filled my scene with all the colored images and made it so that one of the frogs jumps from the log into the pond. I hope it makes you smile as much as it makes me smile! I had so much fun creating this scene!
