Easy-Mail One Layer Scenes

Hey there crafters, Happy Thursday! It's Nina-Marie here with you today to share a set of one layer scene cards featuring some of my favorite Neat & Tangled stamp sets!

I love creating sets of cards as I am working, as it allows me to have more cards on hand when I need them. A card design like this was super easy to make multiples of, especially when you do each step all at once on every card.

I started off my card by stamping all the elements first; the speech bubble (from A Lot to Say),  the sentiment "live for today" (from Bible Journaling and Christmas Journaling), and also the bird (from Itty Bitty Welcoming Committee). 

After stamping, I masked off the speech bubble and added ink around the outer edges using Simon Says Stamp's Maliblue ink. I also masked off an area to be the ground under the bird using a piece of paper die cut from a hill border die (the ink I used was Lime Green from Hero Arts). 

I then added color using my Copics; I colored the bird yellow, added grass blades on the ground using green markers, and created an ombre fill inside each of the letters on my sentiment. I love how the ombre gives the sentiment a lot more interest and helps it stand out off the card. 

For a final finishing touch, I used Morning Dew Crystal Drops and White Blizzard Glitter Drops from Nuvo to create some pretty texture to the sky, and I also used a white gel pen to add in a few smaller dots. They remind me of little raindrops in some ways, and gives the card a more whimsical feel. 

I hope you've enjoyed today's card project! Be sure to check back next week for the beginning of our July Release Week... the fun starts on Monday! 

Thanks for stopping by and spending some time with me; I'll see you again very soon!
xoxo, Nina-Marie
