Christmas scene

>> Saturday, August 1, 2015

Good morning!
This week's challenge was to create a scene so I'm still in the creating scenes mode this morning.
I used the Triple Tree W/Snow 004L twice as a background and the Stonewall with Gate 293P in front of the trees then the Simply Snowman 383G in front of the fence.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Multi Greeting 341H.  I used glue and loose glitter for the ground and Liquid Applique with glitter on top of the fence and pinecones.  The pinecones were made with a scallop circle die (here is a link to the tutorial with Kittie Caracciolo)  I also use a Martha Stewart Branch punch for the greenery under and on top of the pinecones.  I added thin red ribbon as toppers.  Where I live, we have pinecones that are 16"-18" long (called Sugar Pine cones) and make wonderful Christmas decorations, and yes, I have large red bows on top of a set of two for each spot.  they look great in our house where we have knotty pine tongue and grove on the walls.  I put up garland over the windows and such and put a set at each rise (as in a scallop).
My sky is sponged over torn paper to make a cloudy type sky.  To make this card I had to work backward of course, starting with the snowman then masking and stamping the fence, mask and stamp the trees.  I added the pattern to the snowman's scarf, this time checks instead of my usual stripes.  Then added all the other embellishments like glitter and snow and the Merry Christmas sentiment, finally ending with the red folded card base.
Can you see the pinecones on the window corners?
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and I'll see you next week!!!

Love your snowy scene the stone fence and the trees look great together. And the paper pine cones are so creative. The sugar pine cones are beautiful. I don't have pine cones that big but we have them in mass,and it's a job keeping them picked up.

What a great scene Robin! Love the snowman and that fence is wonderful - especially the pinecones. Love your pinecone decorations at your house too - how fun to see a little glimpse of your home (I am jealous - I love that type of wall and hope to have it one day in the lake house I dream of having).
