Today I’m showcasing the brand new Mushroom House background stamp. This background is such fun and works really well with a host of different Hello Bluebird stamp sets.

My card features the Garden Party stamp set, and I was inspired by a card I made last year which features this set and an evening sky.

I stamped the Mushroom House background onto white card, then masked the house and ground so I could blend an evening sky with distress oxides. I used squeezed lemonade, dried marigold, worn lipstick, and chipped sapphire, flicking the panel with white acrylic paint to add lots of stars to the sky.

I didn’t try to mask the flowers and fence in the scene. By inking over them, it sets them back in the scene, giving some distance from the Mushroom House.

I removed the mask and coloured the rest of the  image with copic markers. Once done, I trimmed down the scene to fit an A2 card. I heat embossed a sentiment in white at the top of the scene. The sentiment is from the Garden Party stamp set.

I adhered the scene onto a white card base, then added a white card frame. This frame is from one of the Hello Bluebird scene dies – lots of the scene dies cut a frame like this. If I don’t use them at the time, I keep them as they are great for adding to other cards.

Next, I stamped and copic coloured lots of images from the Garden Party stamp set. I die cut them with the coordinating dies, adding 2-3 blank die cut layers behind each image for dimension. I then arranged and adhered them to my scene to finish.

This scene stamp is great to combine with so many stamp sets – critters, fairies, and of course the gnomes.

Have a lovely day,
