Craft a Scene Trees Challenge - Week 3

Today is clear and c-c-c-cold in the Northwest!  I do love the fall with all its colors and weather changes. We are continuing our Trees challenge and we are seeing very beautiful entries.  It seems this challenge does inspire you all.  You can jump to Mr. Linky if you wish, but why not scroll down and check out our new inspiration.

I have some lovely email entries to share as well as our faithful DT designs.

Margaret in Yorkshire - 

Margaret from Huddersfield in Yorkshire.  Haven’t been in touch for a while, I’ve either left it too late to enter the challenge , or I just haven’t had an idea for a card. 

The Trees, Tress, Trees Challenge set me thinking, and looking through our stock of stamps I decided to use just one set of stamps from Claritystamp.  The name of the stamp set is Winter Trees and their Mantles and includes 4 bear trees and 4 mantles , or foliage stamps along with a border stamp.
For the card I used Adirondack inkpads in blues and greens , a brayer and torn paper to create the background.  I then stamped the border along the bottom and added the bare trees using Versafine onyx black.  I then added the Mantles using various shades of greens.  Then with Adirondack inkpad in Pesto and torn paper I grounded all the trees.  As a final touch I added some tiny bird ,also from Claritystamp, and sponged around the edges to help add dimention.


I have named the picture Woodland Glen.  Hope you like it.

And from her daughter Dawn - 

I bought a Memory Box stencil the other week which fits the theme perfectly, so I've made two cards with it.  For the first, I used just one stamp - a Pheasant from Clarity Stamps; for my second, I used all Lavinia stamps (Stag, various Snowflakes, and a Fern stamp to add foliage around the edge).



Well, that's two Christmas cards finished at least!

Here is what our talented Sue has created for you today. 

Now it is your turn to make a scene that includes a moon.  You may enter up to 3 times and as many other challenges as you wish. If you do not have a blog or account on Split Coast Stampers, then just email me a picture of the piece and I will add it to one of our posts.

Craft a Scene Trees, Trees, Trees Challenge - Week 2

This is our second week of the Trees challenge and we already have several wonderful entries.  This is such a nice time of year with a great variety of weather days.  So far, my town has had torrential rains, warm sunny days, cloudy grey days and a frost (so much for the garden).  The trees respond to this variety by dropping there leaves all over my yard!

I have email entries from Barb this week - love the birch trees!



Please make sure that your scenic card, tag or project has stamped images in the foreground and background.  We are a scenic challenge after all!  

Rachel has made us a fabulous card for inspiration. 


Now it is your turn to make a scene that includes a moon.  You may enter up to 3 times and as many other challenges as you wish. If you do not have a blog or account on Split Coast Stampers, then just email me a picture of the piece and I will add it to one of our posts.

Craft a Scene Trees, Trees, Trees Challenge

With the advent of fall and the passing of Halloween we are seeing all the green leaves turn a multitude of colors.....



This wonderful fall scene with all the trees turning makes me think of a particular Stampscapes stamp that I own.  If you haven't guessed yet, our theme for the month of November is Trees, trees, trees.

Please make sure that your scenic card, tag or project has stamped images of trees with foreground and background images.  We are a scenic challenge after all!  

Here is what the talented Craft a Scene design team has created as your inspiration this month.

Craft a Scene Silvery Moon Challenge - Top 3

We had only 13 cards this month and no email entries.  I think everyone must be busy!  Our theme, By the Silvery Moon might cause us to break into song at any moment, but it is time to reveal our top 3 winners.  

If you have a blog, please feel free to add our badge to your side bar.


If you do not have a blog then be sure to check back for the comments left about your fabulous entries.

Here are the selections for the top three for October - By the Silvery Moon.




#4 Doreen
   




I couldn't help but choose one of Rosie's fabulous entries, even though she entered four times (that's a no-no!).  Also it is fitting that we just passed Halloween and her last entry was lucky (or unlucky depending on your point of view) #13.



These are all wonderful projects ladies.  See you in a few minutes with our next challenge theme.

Happy Stamping!
