So…. I might be biased because I love fall but there’s a TON of super cute items for this release. If you saw my sneak peek card from yesterday over at the Trinity blog, I used Autumn Forest Friends to create an autumn scene. I also snuck in a mini sneak peek into the Sleepy Hollow stamp set.
For today’s card, I focused on the Sleepy Hollow stamp set. This set is super adorable and is perfect to create a full scene card as well. Although it comes with coordinating dies, I opted to go ahead and mask my entire scene.
When creating a more complicated scene, I’ll always stamp out everything first so I can use it as a template to make sure I stamp everything in the correct order. The things you want to appear in front have to be stamped first.
Since I cut out little masks for everything, I wanted to make the most of my card by creating two instead of just one. I went ahead and stamped everything out at the same time using a stamp positioner, which makes life much easier.
Before I get to coloring all my stamped images, I went in with distress inks to create a background using the new Trinity Stamps Blending Buddy Brushes. These brushes are super soft, have a case, and can stand up on their own. Creating the backgrounds were super easy with them!
For my day scene, I used blues and yellows. For my night scene, I went with purples and blues. I also used the new Birch Tree Stencils, which contain the negative and positive stencils, for the background. It added a bit of depth to the card behind my main scene and I didn’t have to think much about it.
Once I finished my backgrounds, I removed all the masks and colored my main image in with alcohol markers. For the day scene, I kept everything bright and happy. For the night scene, I added an element of the light shining from the lantern. I really enjoyed how these two came together. Although it took extra time to create masks and stamp out my scene properly, I think it was totally worth it! I hope you enjoyed both my cards! Do you have a favorite? I personally couldn’t be more thrilled with how my night scene turned out!
