Trimming the Town Suite by Stampin' Up! - Cute Scene Card


Christmas in July anyone?!

In the crafting world this is perfectly normal - honestly!  Now is the time to grab your Christmas/New Year crafting supplies (not to mention Hallloween, Thanksgiving and whatsoever else!) for the season so that you have a nice relaxed amount of time to get creative.  Stampin' Up! are more than on the ball for this with their AUG-DEC MINI CATALOGUE and have everything you need to get going.


Today's card is part of my Christmas in July series which will give you some inspiration to begin.

I have used the TRIMMING THE TOWN SUITE which is new with this catalogue and is full of really cute wintery scenes and images.  It is also the chosen set for Stampin' Up!'s Making A Difference initiative which will donate a portion of sales proceeds from the stamp set to charities supporting adoption, fostering in your country, so you can feel even better about popping this one in your basket!


This card used the snowflake on Misty Moonlight from the TRIMMING THE TOWN DSP which is perfect as the backdrop.  I then had a smaller layer of WHISPER WHITE CARD STOCK to stamp the two medium sized housed on and a scrap to stamp the car and trees.

STAMPIN' BLENDS are the perfect tool for colouring these images, but you could use watercolour pencils or Stampin' Write Markers if you have those.  

I used the HOME TOGETHER DIES, which form part of this suite and are available with the stamp set as a bundle for 10% off, to cut out the trees and car.  Raising these on the card overlapping the houses slightly gives a sense of depth to the scene.

I finished the card with a sentiment cut from the DSP - no stamping required! And a final trim of Poppy Parade ribbon from the ALL THE TRIMMINGS COMBO PACK.
