Scene Building with Hootiful Stamps
Hey there, Heffy Doodlers!
Kelly here on the blog today with with this sweet scene that holds a particularly special place in my heart.
My husband is a high school science teacher and today was his first day back to the classroom after the Christmas break. Of course, he totally rocked it out and has some great things in store for his students this semester.
But let’s get to the card!
It’s really easy to build a scene with the Heffy Doodle images. They are designed to work really well together and create completed looks to carry off a finished scene. For today’s card, I stamped out some images from the Hootiful and Teacher’s Pet sets with copic friendly black ink and then colored them with various copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and then set them aside.
To create the background, I used a cloud stencil from My Favorite Things and my Distress Oxide inks since they blend really well together! I masked off the bottom of the card to create the sky and then reversed the masking to create the ground.
After the ground and sky were finished, it was really easy to put everything else together! I find that it’s usually better to create one focal point of your scene and then arrange/build the rest of your images around that focal point. In this case, I chose the chalkboard to be the focal image, and so I glued that down first. I then arranged the rest of my images on the card to complete the scene. One other helpful tip is to lay your images down without glue first. Then you can move them around and try different arrangements before you settle on a final look. Then take a picture with your phone and–VOILA! Really easy to re-create it!
I used a sentiment from the Teach Me Words set and some black ink to create the sentiment and then glued that whole scene panel on to a cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base to finish off the card.
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to drop me a comment if you have any questions about how I created this card!
