Creating a Scene

Today’s card was created following taking the Seasonal Scene building class over on Altenew as part of my work towards my ACEP. I enjoyed all the lessons from the class and took note from the Background Building class as inspiration to for this card for creating a scene. I need to send a card to someone following moving into their new home and decided why not create a window scene as though you’re looking out of the window in their new house. I also added a flower in a vase, as though this was a bunch of flowers sat on the window sill that I ‘gifted’ them.  

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY work towards my ALtenew Educator Certificate Programme - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Creating a Scene

To create the window

To create the window, die-cut four small squares from the piece of white card, leaving a small space in between each square to create the inner frame of the window. Once all 4 squares are cut out, use a paper trimmer to trim down the card create a square with a small frame around the edge. 

For the outdoor window scene, ink blend It’s a boy, Day Dream and Juniper Mist Catherine Pooler Inks onto a white piece of card. Next, using a combination of the stamps from the Altenew Leaf Canopy stamp set, stamp in Black Jack and Juniper Mist Catherine Pooler Ink at the top of the blended panel. 

For a little more interest to the scene, add a few paint splatters of perfect pearl – mix water with a little perfect powder. This could look like blossom falling from the trees. Once the panel is dry, foam mount your die-cut window frame on top of the panel.

Adding a textured 'wall'

To create the texture wall background, dry emboss the Broken Chevron stencil onto white cardstock. Set up your die cutting machine to emboss the stencil – for a Sizzix Big shot, your sandwich should be the platform, adapter B, cutting plate, embossing mat, cardstock, stencil and the Sizzix impressions pad. 

When dry embossed, foam mount the panel onto a 7″ x7 white card base and add your window scene panel in one corner. 

To create the flowers, stamp the tall vase from the Altenew Versatile Vases stamp set in Altenew Permanent Black Crips ink along with the floral from the Altenew Dotted Blooms stamp set. The floral was coloured in using BV01, BV02 and BV 04 Copic makers. 

The floral was fussy cut-out and foam mounted over the window frame. For added interest, apply Gina K Crystalline drops over the vase to give the look of glass. 

The sentiment was heat embossed in WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder onto black cardstock and foam mounted onto the panel. 

Lastly, a few Rock Candy confetti mix sequins from Trinty Stamps was add within the window as embellishments
