Spring Love


DT Annalisa here today, sharing a waterfront scene I created using the new Slimline Hillside Scene Dies and Sunrise Scene 6 x 6” Stencil. I am sad that spring is coming to a close as it is one of my favourite seasons. I am just not happy when it is hot and humid. How about you, what is your favourite season?

To start, I stamped, coloured (with Copics) and die cut the ducks and other accessories (flower, dragonfly, etc.) from the adorable Lucky Ducks stamp set. I also used some other T4T stamp sets (You’ve Got Mail, Life's Ups & Downs, Beavering Away, All Occasion Critters Clear Stamp Set) and some other stamps and dies in my stash. 

I created the grass layer using Distress Oxides (Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover) and my Beautiful Rainbow Blender Brushes. I added splatter in white and Lucky Clover and once the paper was dry, I die cut it using the slimline grass die from the Slimline Hillside Scene Dies. I absolutely LOVE this die set, the grass cuts so beautifully and I love the end result.

For the water layer, I used Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean with the Sunrise Scene 6 x 6” Stencil, I love the water ripple effect that this stencil helps you to create. Once again, I added white splatter and die cut it out using the Slimline Hillside Scene Dies.

For the final background layer, I used the Sunrise Scene Stencil and Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey Distress Oxides for the sun. The sky was in Tumbled Glass and the clouds in Speckled Egg. I die cut this background using the largest die in the Slimline Scalloped Trio Circle Nesting Dies.

 Once all of the elements were ready, I began to assemble the card, starting by adding the water layer down on top of the background layer using liquid glue. Then I added foam tape to the grass and added it on top of the water. I then adhered all of the critters and elements using liquid glue.

I stamped and die cut out the sentiment from You've Got Mail and its' coordinating dies and stuck it down with liquid glue to complete the card.
