Create A Scene! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!

This week our challenge is -

Create A Scene!

The design team are featuring


 products on our cards this week.

Lavinia Stamps is a brand I'd not used before & I was a bit stumped at first when choosing products for this challenge as many of those I picked went out of stock before I checked out so I opted for a Christmas theme, and thought I would try one of the pretty Scene Scapes backgrounds as I'd not even seen those before. Simon Says Stamp has since had a big restock and there are lots of lovely Lavinia Stamps products back in stock now :)

The Scene Scapes makes card making so much quicker which will be a big help around Christmas time as I never seem to create enough cards to send only handmade cards so these will help to boost my stash.

I've created a moon by using the Acetate Circle Mask Stencilink blending Simon Says Stamps white pigment ink through the stencil. Once I had good ink coverage I removed my stencil and masked the moon before lightly blending white ink around the moon.

I've stamped the Santa in his sleigh from Lawn Fawn's Winter Skies stamp set & also Lesia Zgharda Carpathian Pines clear stamps, & the die cut Star Of Wonder is by Memory Box.

To create the sentiment I randomly added a variety of blue Distress Inks onto my card and then die cut it using Simon Says Stamps Happy Birthday wafer die.

Our masculine challenge is always a challenge for me as I'm not a fan of masculine cards & it's fair to say they aren't one of my strengths! The only masculine cards I always enjoy making is for a baby boy, as I love making baby cards.

As you can see I am still enjoying water colouring at the moment & have stamped my image using Ink On3 Fadeout ink pad onto watercolour paper & used a mix of Distress Inks and Altenew watercolour Pans to colour the pretty image.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps Sketched Flowers stamp set & is one I've used again and again as I love the elegant swirly writing.

Today's card features Memory Box Catalina Wreath Wafer Die which I didn't intend using for this challenge but my DT parcel with the products I intended to use is somewhere in Switzerland for some reason & didn't arrive in time. The Catalina Wreath die is so pretty I'm more than happy to use it again & have done many times.

I die cut the Catalina Wreath using white cardstock & then coloured the flowers using Copics and then dusted my die cut with prisma glitter.

I die cut a large tag and then placed it on Simon Says Stamps Stitched Whirl background die to add the lovely pattern to my tag. 

For my sentiment I have used Simon Says Stamp You Matter stamps & die & I chose this sentiment as I made my card on Monday which was the day those of us in the England were at last allowed to "cautiously" hug our friends & loved ones for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

Today's card features Pink Fresh Studio's Thankful For Friends Clear Stamp Set which I have stamped using Ink On 3 Fadeout ink pad & water coloured using Altenew's Watercolour pans

To stencil the hearts above my flowers I ink blended Stormy Sky Distress Ink over Simon Says Stamp & CZ Designs Simple Duo Stencil and then I added some watered down Shaded Lilac Distress Ink to the left side of each blue heart using a paintbrush and pulled the colour across with my wet paintbrush. I wanted the hearts to look a little softer than they did so I used a large paintbrush and just painted over them a couple of times using water.
