 Yainea created such a happy little scene for her Mother's Day card! I love how she layered the Meadow Border and the Simple Stitched Hillside Border. Those pretty birch trees from Joy to the Woods are perfect for setting the scene year-round!


 Chari used a Meadow Border to create a pasture scene for the Critters on the Farm cow and mouse. The cute sun is part of the Spring Showers die set; I love the smiling face and rosy cheeks she added using stamps from Rooting for You.

 Latisha's card is so fun with a mix of cardstock colors and that adorable bear from Love You S'more! By adding Scripty Congrats and the Hats Off to You mortarboard it makes a wonderful graduation card. This same design could be used for lots of occasions just by switching out the Scripty die and giving the bear a different hat!

 I love Lynnette's sweet Fairy Friends card! The Simple Stitched Hillside cut from pretty patterned paper sets the scene for the cute stamped and colored images.

 Melissa's Year Six design is so clever! I love how she added machine-stitched detail to the Mermaid frame and to the colorful layers of Simple Stitched Hillside Borders.


Nichol's beautifully stamped Rooting for You card uses Simple Stitched Hillside Borders to create a fun layered garden!

  8. I usually use distress inks to create sky and grass backgrounds and dies for other parts of the scene like grass clouds sky.

    ReplyDelete
  9. My favorite way to make a scene would be using dies I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I always start by stamping out a bunch of different images I think I might use - I've found it easier to have a bunch of cute things to play with in case I end up changing things around :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Fabulous collection of cute scenes. I like layering with distress ink and masking for background layers and then some foreground dies and then die cut or hand cut images.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Great cards!
    I like ink blending the card background with blues (sky) and greens (grass).

  16. Well my favorite way to build a scene is anything inspired by Lawn Fawn! It's so easy to make scenes using your dies, they really build themselves!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love these borders! I have the original hillside borders and grassy borders coming in the mail this week, and am so excited! while I love to layer, I also love the challenge of making single-layer cards with masking.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Each day just gets cuter! You ladies are all so talented! My favorite way to build a scene is to use a slope die or to just cut it freehand. I also like to make thick and thin layers to focus in on the focal part of the card and get more color.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh my my! What beautiful scenes using hillside and meadow borders! You rocked once again! And I always love to create scene using LF dies, and puffy clouds are my fave one, so versatile!

    ReplyDelete
  22. What adorable cards! My favorite way to create a scene is with my focal image first, and then I love adding sunshine, hillsides and clouds!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love how these two new border dies work well together!! Because of Lawn Fawn and the inspiration that I found with the products, I find that there are numerous fun ways to build a scene using the stitched borders, clouds, sun, etc. I also like to sponge in some colors for a sky background. My fave is making a night time sky though.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Gorgeous cards from everyone! Chari's card reminds me of a few days ago when my hubby saw a little mouse walking on the patio roof gutter ... he looked at my hubs, my hubs looked at him, and then the mouse twittered his little nose (as if to say hello!) and ducked down and sped away. lol I have never made a "scene" card. I need the right dies for that still. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Very cute... I think I need those trees. My favorite way to build a scene is to use dies for layering... I love these new sets.

    ReplyDelete
  28. For building a scene I love to use depth- I made sure to use foam so things seem a little more 3-d and it really pops out of the card. I love these two die sets- Lawn fawn you make me want everything you create!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I start by coloring and cutting lots of animals and other bits. Then I just start placing them together on my card base adding and taking away elements as I go.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I use my stitched border dies 95% of the time on my cards, and I like to use foam sheets or tape to build up the elements of my scenes.

    ReplyDelete
  32. What amazing scenes on these cards! I am still learning to build scenes but I like to use distress inks and the hillside border dies. And lots of cute critters!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I usually will start with a frame and build my scene from there, depending on how large the main image is. I most often will do grass/sky/clouds for my scenes, though....

    ReplyDelete

I always seem to start with one (or more!) of my critters and then try and build the scene up from there - it is something I struggle with though so I love seeing the great ideas the DT come up with!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I always start with the Stamp I want to feature and go from there. Love hillsides and clouds and picture frames

    ReplyDelete
  95. I start by picking what stamp set and dies I want to use. Then I start with a blank card and work my way outward. So, I use my sponges and ink (maybe some dies)to create my background. Then color and die cut my my trees, rocks, flowers; etc. and then I color, die cut and place my critters or images where I want them making sure to leave room for my sentiment.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  148. SUPER CUTE cards with SWEET scenes - LOVE the curved and grassy borders!!!
    I have to confess that while I LOVE layers, I haven't created many scenes, with the most adventurous ones being some race cards driving along a hilly road. I start them by layering the curves of the hills for the background, adding some clouds & a sun then popping the cards on last.
    Thank You for the INSPIRATION and the chance to win :)

  162. Scenes are new and challenging to me! I've just worked out how to do great clouds so I'm incorporating lots of cloudy skies and simple grassy hills - looking forward to playing more with my sets to improve my skills!

  165. I like to take 15 minutes here and there to stamp and die cut the images so I have a pile ready when I have time. I have a bowl of fishies on my table waiting for a tank!

  168. For building scenes I usually use hills and tree dies, and I also like to add watercolor backgrounds. These cards are all fabulous!

  169. I don't have any favorite way to create scenes, I just create :-) But usually, when I create scenes, I use critters, grass or hills dies and clouds.

  170. I started with a grass border punch but then I liked using it as a mask with green distress inks for a single layer. Then adding ink for sky and clouds. Or using a wavy border punch for a water scene.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Gorgeous cards! I usually think up of a scene in my mind then get to work assembling all the stamps!

    ReplyDelete
  175. Cute ideas! I usually start from the bottom and work my way up when building scenes.

    ReplyDelete
  176. I haven't done a whole bunch of scenes, but I love doing layers that carry on into the inside.

  177. I build my scene using my dies from you as they are fool proof. I am not as clever on my own but your products take the guess work out of it.

    ReplyDelete
  178. I haven't made very many scenes and am putting these hillside borders on my wishlist. They are perfect. Right now I love doing a watercolor background!

    ReplyDelete
  179. I don't really do alot of scenes but dies are a must!

    ReplyDelete
  180. Those root veggies always make me smile! I just used my set to help my son with his diorama project on worms. Worms and compost help grow Happy Veggies! I like to build a scene by layering the background using the hillside borders and the puffy clouds.

  181. I love to build scenes. It depends on the scene whether I fussy cut a or use the dies.

    ReplyDelete
  182. I am just a beginner at adding dimension with layers, but your dies really help.

    ReplyDelete
  183. i haven't made cards really but i would just do it randomly as my inspiration strikes.

    ReplyDelete
  184. What can I say. I love all your products!!!!!!!!! They are so much fun to color and make the best cards ever. Thanks so much and keep them coming. God Bless you all.

  185. I just love Cristina's card. Adorable!

  186. These border dies are such a good idea.

    ReplyDelete
  187. Layering the waves or hills and adding inks to change the colors of the edges has worked well for me

    ReplyDelete
  188. I usually build a scene by choosing the background and then build the foreground. Hillside or wave dies help so much.

    ReplyDelete
  189. I love these borders. I usually start with my image and build around it.

    ReplyDelete
  190. I need to get better at building scenes like the great ones showcased in this post, but I tend to start with my critters or main images first.

    ReplyDelete
  191. I usually start with my background, position my images, then place hill, grass, or fence border and finish with embellishments.

    ReplyDelete
  192. I build a scene by first choosing my focal stamp whether it's flowers or creatures. Then everything starts to fall in place.
    I love Chari's card!

    ReplyDelete
  193. I prefer blank backgrounds with a lot of multi-dimensional accents/characters with a sentiment that isn't in-your-face loud.

    ReplyDelete
  194. Such great inspiration! I just started building scenes and am still learning. Before now, my cards were mostly blank, embossed or patterned paper.

    ReplyDelete
  195. I don't always build scenes for my cards, but I usually start with the papers - finding ones that I love to coordinate together and start from there. I build the background to go with the stamps I chose for that card and go from there. :)

    ReplyDelete
  196. Brilliant inspirations here! I love building a scene. Position different stamps and using masks to create depth.

    ReplyDelete
  197. Gorgeous cards! I have a thing for owls so I'm crazy about Christine's card! Beautiful! I love to build scenes by setting up the perspective first, then finding dies that will fit with the perspective. For example, I make sure the reindeer on the roof isn't larger than the house itself, that sort of thing. I love it when I can find new ways to use my dies!
    Take Care!
