Quick And Easy Scenic Card

FSC is all about TREES this month which the lovely Sandra picked as the theme.

Isn’t it strange that over the years the things that you used to do a lot of gets pushed to the back of your mind as you develop other tastes in crafting.

Making a scene with stamps and inks was something I so loved doing years back when I first started crafting but other things like paints, molding paste, crackle and messiness seem to have taken over.

So this is why I enjoyed making my little scene below, which was so quick and easy, enjoyed every minute of the making and revisiting some of the old techniques which I used to do.  This literally took minutes and yet it looks so very elegant and fresh.

Just shows what you can make with a 6 x 6 white card, three stamps and two colours of ink.


The embossing folder used was an Xcut 6 x 6 square frame, tree stamps are from Stampin Up and the little birdie … who knows it’s that old.  The little grass is also an old Art Impression wooden stamp.  You can find the cling mounted set here but I think the wooden set has been discontinued.

I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    Well what can I say Shirl, quick and easy maybe but it’s really rather lovely and looks framed ready for display. So please I am not the only one with an old stash of Art Impressions, I have a draw full of them and rarely a scenic card gets made without one making an appearance.

    This is lovely Shirl. I’ve had this stamp set for years and it’s really served me well and they can be used for so many different occasions. I love the scene you’ve created and the little bird is a real sweetie, I really like the frame too as it matches the colour of the sky beautifully. I’m just catching up with my commenting as we’ve been out all day supporting our Son-in-Law who ran the Yorkshire Marathon…..rather him than me;) He swears it’s his last but I’ve heard that one before! Enjoy your evening. Crafty hugs, Sandra X

    Your scene is lovely and effective, I “see” the low winter sun, the snow and I’m transported. The frame works well with the scene too.
    I still love making scenes… In fact I tend to alternate between the Messy Mixed Media and the simple stamping. And trees… I have so many tree stamps I could stamp a forest!

    Hi Shirley. Quick and easy should never be underestimated for the beauty that it can bring. And this is a beautiful framed piece! I think that even when stamps are older, and techniques that are forgotten and then remembered, it is the fresh ideas that you have from today that give everything a whole new lease of life.

    It may have been quick and easy but that doesn’t detract from the beautiful scene you created, and all framed perfectly. (I thought the embossing folder was actually a frame)

  10. I couldn’t agree more. It is fun to go back to our roots in stamping on occasion. Your design stands the test of time. Beautiful! Best, Yvonne
