Seasonal Scene Building
Hi there! Today's post is a little special for me, it's my tenth one, and I can not believe I've made it this far. My learning journey has been a joy to my everyday life, and I thank Altenew for their online classes that they put together for crafters alike to connect. Every day when logging onto my class which is Group 17, I get to see what other classmates have created. This inspires me because it gives me the feeling of being in a group with others who are sharing the same interests.
The card above was inspired by my instructor Nichol Magouirk. She shared so many ideas on how to create a scene card. I applied 3 of her techniques above: one being my sentiment framed on the wall; secondly I made a tabletop so my plate could sit on it (this grounds the large image); thirdly, I grouped many cups for maximum impact.
To start, I embossed the card front with the Ombre Stripes Stencil, and then I cut a few strips of pattern paper to adhere on the bottom. I also cut out the Frilly Frame Die and placed it in the middle to look like a round crochet doily coaster. I stamped the cups and plate with the Cherry Blossom dye ink set, as well as heat embossed them in gold. Next, I cut it out with its corresponding die, that came from the Vintage Teacup set. I gently went around the edges of the die-cut with Vintage Photo distress ink to give it more depth. For the flower pattern on the teacup, I coloured it with Copic markers. I made a small slit on the cups to stack them up.
I used a gold twine to attach a small teabag with a heart rhinestone. I stamped the roses and leaves from the Painted Bloom stamp set with Cherry Blossom and Pocket Of Sunshine dye ink then I added Wink of Stella on top. I adhered the ribbon lace tape on the top of the card to create a curtain look.
Lastly, I cut out a frame from Woodgrain Cardstock and also used distress ink around the edges. I mounted the frame with foam tape, and I think this frame helped ties all the elements together. This scene is my favourite because it reminds me of a classic high tea.
I would like to enter my card into these following challenges:
