Hi and welcome back, Joy here with a scene building project to share with you.  Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we have all of your Fall stamping needs ready for you to download for your last minute projects. If you’re ready to start your Christmas shopping and crafting we have you covered!  I hope to inspire some of your holiday crafting today by showcasing how to build a scene with digital stamps.  Here. I have combined two stamp sets from Joy Clair Designs, Making Memories and Santa’s Favorite to create the perfect Christmas scene. These little bears from the Making Memories set crack me up, and I can’t wait to share them with you.

I created my scene in Photoshop Elements by arranging the bears around the Christmas tree from the Santa’s Favorite stamp set. I love working with digital images because you don’t have to do pesky masking, and you can resize your images to fit to your liking. I love that instead of masking images, I can just send some to the “back” and others “forward” in my program. After arranging the bears from the Making Memories set, I added the sentiment to the upper left corner and the snowflakes from Santa’s Favorite.

I printed my scene on to smooth card stock and colored it with Copic markers.  After coloring my cute scene, I added sparkle with a shimmer pen and snow with a Marvy Snow marker. To activate the “snow” you have to heat set it with a heat gun. I then, cut my panel down to 4.5x 6.5inches and matted it on black card stock and to an A7 card base.

I’d love to know, which is your favorite of the two stamp sets, Making Memories, or Santa’s Favorite? I happen to love them both! I think this wraps it up for me. But…
