Quiet times

Quite times 2013

I’m back with the Cards for Men challenge #8 and it is anything goes but has to be for a man or a boy card. I have not made a scenic card in a long time, I love to make them.

I first cut out my card stock with spellbinders die labels 5. I left the die on the front of the cut, on the front I used removal tape on the edges so it would stay in place and add the inks to the sky and the ground area. For stamping the stamps I added post it notes on the white area so I would not stamp in that area. Punched out a 1 inch circle from the post it notes. Using different sponges for each color of ink. The inks used for the sky are memento cantaloupe ink add a little and now put the 1 inch circle on add some more of the cantaloupe trying not to let the circle move now add the tangelo memento ink to the top edges. The grass area used memento bamboo leaves ink. I finished it off with some memento tuxedo black only on the bottom. After I got all the stamps done I removed the post it notes papers and the circle and this is what I got…

The stamps I used are from stampscapes man with boy, birds, and cows. The scenic background is from The angel company from the set mountain scene. Rounded all the corners with the zutter round it all.

My tea cup set and the cupcakes, I did not make but I did paint them. I found them all in the button department at Joann’s store. My flowers I found in the bridal department at Hobby lobby and they had all kinds of colors, they where 50% off, so I paid $1.00 for 6 of them. Thought that was a good deal.
