Creating a Cozy Window Scene

#diecutting Ink Blending Scene Card

Hi friends! 

I admire cordmakers that can create an amazing scene on their card, but I have never been able to acquire that knack. So today I want to share my way of creating a scene card that doesn't make me want to pull my hair out! Let's get started! The products that I'll be using for my card are the Floating Dreams stamp, The Right Pair of Boots stamp, Simple Plaid stencil, Basic Die Cutting Set 1, and Swanky Friendship sentiment stamp. 

First, I wanted to create a wallpaper scene that you'd find in a home, so I stamped Floating Dreams stamp in black ink onto a white 5.5x4.25 card panel. Then I inked the panel in shades of yellow, moving from light in the center to darker at the edge of the card panel. I felt like the yellow resembled soft lighting reflecting from a window at dusk. 

Next, I focused on the window frame using Basic Die Cutting Set 1. 

I die cut the set onto a white and black card panel. I used the white card panel for the windowpanes and the black panel for the frame around the panes. The black represents the outside of the house, so to make it look a bit more realistic, I stenciled white ink onto the black panel using Simple Plaid stencil. I adhered both pieces over the wallpaper panel created earlier. I had intended to add clear acetate behind the paned windows to represent glass, but I forgot. Oh well! 

The final step was to create a cozy flower box beneath the window! I stamped a sentiment from Swanky Friendships onto the white window box die and then adhered it onto the card panel with foam tape. Then I stamped, colored, and die cut several flowers from The Right Pair of Boots stamp (they were the perfect size) and tucked them in behind the flower box! I finished with glossy accents over the flower stamins! 

It was so easy to create this cozy scene, and it works to bring us to a place of warmth and fondness! Grab your Picket Fence goodies and see what you can come up with for a good scene!!! Thanks for stopping by today!
