Scene dies are very versatile and, with some minor additions, can work for any season. My card today features the Winter Walk Scene die, which I turned into a Spring Scene with a little help from the Pond Builder die set.
I die cut the Winter Walk scene die twice from white card. I like to have two of the borders to give some depth to the scene. I also die cut parts of the scene again – the trees from woodgrain cardstock, the mountains from plaid patterned paper, and the ground pieces from green card.
On my slimline card base, I blended on some shaded lilac and tumbled glass distress oxide inks. I then layered the two white card frames so I could begin building my scene.
I used distress oxide inks in pine needles and mowed lawn to add more colour to the ground pieces of the scene. It’s easier to use coloured card and add darker colour, rather than white card. I adhered these to the scene with liquid glue, leaving the top edges free of adhesive so I could tuck flowers underneath later.
I added the mountains and tree trunks next. As the trees in the scene die are winter trees, they don’t have foliage. It’s very easy to add some, though.
I used a die from the Pond Builder die set to cut out some green card stock. I added distress oxide colour for depth and used my copic markers to add some more details to the tree trunks and foliage. I then adhered them onto the trees to transform the scene to Springtime.
The adorable images in my scene are mostly from the Little Painters stamp set. I also added some additional flowers and butterflies from other Hello Bluebird stamp sets – Spring Gatherings, Strawberry Jam and Field Mice. All the images are coloured with copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies.
Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the Easter Egg Hunt stamp set to finish.
Have a lovely day,
Your card is adorable Gemma! And yes, just added the pond scene builder to my cart, thanks for the inspiration. It’s always awesome to get more used out of dies!
