Hi everyone! It's Lindsay here, from Crafting While Caffeinated Blog and YouTube Channel, and I am super excited to be back and share another video with you all! I love to create scenes on my cards and Joy Clair stamp sets really lend themselves to making really fun scenes. But I don't always have an hour to mask, color, and die cut a ton of pieces to create really intricate scenes for my cards. But, there are so many easy and quick tips and trick on creating very simple, but still beautiful scenes that take very little time. You can watch the video below for all the details!
There are several ways to make your scenes easy and quick to put together. The first is to have a plan. I like to use my stamps, lay them out on my panel to get a good idea of what I want to use in my scene and where I want it to go. I keep checking back to my design throughout the project so I'm not left with any surprises when I'm putting it together.
Another thing to consider with some of my scenes is what coloring medium I will be using. This will save you time in the long run and help you to choose the right ink to use! If you aren't sure what medium you want to go with, try and choose an ink that will work with a variety of coloring mediums. On my first project, I still wasn't sure what medium I would be using so I used Versafine Clair Ink in Nocturne to stamp my images from Gnome is Where the Heart Is stamp set.
Something else I really love to do to with my scenes is frame them. That's what I did on the second card today. If you don't have any frame dies you can easily make your own with nesting die sets. Be sure to watch the video for all the info! On this card I used the Blessed Harvest stamp set and to help let the simple scene shine, I used a frame to set it apart from the background.
My final tip I will leave you with is to not make anything more complicated than it needs to be! On my final card, I wanted to create a die cut scnene. Alot of times I would inlay separate pieces, to create a one layer background, however you don't need to! I only die cut a few pieces through simple layering I was able to create what looked like a lot of dimension, but is really just one piece of foam! On this card I only used one stamp from the Turkey Talk set to create this scene!
Scene making definitely does not have to be difficult and I hope you all found a few tips and tricks that help you create really fun, simple and quick scenes! If you are interested in any of the supplies or stamp sets I used on my cards today, you can find them all listed and linked down below. Until next time, happy crafting!
