Christy’s Beary Rainy Day Scene

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration and join us for the Create a Scene challenge! We can’t wait to see your creativity! This challenge will be open until Sunday, May 1 at 11:59PM ET. 

Hey friends, it’s Christy with another card for our Create a Scene Challenge! I’ve created a few cheerful cards recently using the Beary Rainy Day stamp set, but this time I wanted to go in a darker direction for someone who might be having a rough time. I don’t have enough cards like that in my stash for when a situation that calls for one suddenly comes up. So, I combined it with the sweet little Here for You Bear cub (a recent free gift with purchase) and some mushrooms from Oh Gnome! and Gleeful Gardens. I stamped the images in Jet Black Ink, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

I created my stormy scene by masking off the bottom of a panel of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock with Post-it Tape. I blended on Hickory Smoke and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks for the ground. Then I repositioned my mask and blended the same colors for the sky. Then I used the Rainy Sky Stencil to add some Fairy Dust Stencil Paste raindrops. I also cut two pieces of Noble Fir Cardstock with the Slimline Grassy Hillside Borders (you could use the regular length, I just don’t own them), and blended a bit more Black Soot at the bottom of each to darken them up.

I cut down those pieces with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables and popped the background onto a Storm Cloud card base with foam tape. Then I added the grass and images with liquid glue. I adhered an Everyday Sentiment Banner in the top right corner and finished the card with a bit of Stardust Stickles.

I also finished off the inside of the card, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty!

Thank you so much for sharing this beautifully thoughtful card with us today, Christy!

Have a happy, crafty weekend, everyone!
