Having Fun with Scenery!

Hi! Happy Saturday! I hope you have something fun planned for your weekend! Chris and I saw Rod Stewart and Bryan Adams last night -- what a fantastic concert! Today is definitely going to be a "catch up" day around here -- the laundry is piling up!

I have been eager to share these projects with you. I used the new C.C. Designs Sugarplums Scenery Set. The set contains images which help you make great scenes with your stamps! On this first card I started with some images from Olivia's Birdies. I then used the Scenery Set to add cherry blossoms to the branch and a cloud in the sky. They are cut out and popped up. I cut out the image panel and mat with my Rectangle Nestabilities, and the patterned paper is BasicGrey Romani.


I really like the way this next project turned out! I have always admired Sharon Harnist's calendar pages. I thought I'd make an August calendar with the Scenery Set. The calendar page was printed using a Word template. "August" comes from the C.C. Designs Calendar Months set. I covered a chipboard coaster with BasicGrey Sultry paper and placed the calendar on top. On the bottom I stamped grass. I stamped flowers for the bottom and the clouds for the top, colored them, and cut them out. They are mounted on rolled up glue dots for dimension. I created a "sandwich" with another coaster -- I punched holes in the tops of both coasters and attached them together with dotted organdy ribbon.

I used a flower from the set to stamp around August 11 -- RELEASE DAY!! I hope you'll join us Monday night at the ATS Message Board for a little release party from 8-10 pm EST. Then all the new stamps will be available at 10:00 pm!!

Head over to the ATS Blog to see more Design Team projects and to enter to win one of the new sets!!! Thanks for the visit today -- Have a wonderful day, everyone! :)
