Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Create a Scene


Hello, Back again! It has been a busy week for my blog and challenges. Today’s card is for the latest challenge over at Seize the Birthday. Lindsey our DT member, had the fabulous idea of Create a Scene as our topping this time around. I have been making scene cards like this for a few months now for the stores and have not used a birthday greeting and thought this was the perfect challenge to do just that.

Card Details: I used MFT cloud stencil and a heart stencil to start my background. I then masked off the rest to create my water. The water ripples are made with a stamp. You do have to do a lot of thinking and masking and covering when doing these types of scenes. They are never perfect, but that is what makes them handmade. The boat is a die from Impression Obsession. The water and all the birds are from the same SU set called High Tide. The greeting is from the SU-Rose Wonder set.

Come by STB and see what the rest of the team and our guest Carol have done! Such great talent over there!

Take care, Nanc’
