Here is this month’s Mix it Up Challenge!
I'm here with a slimline card using the most adorable Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
Creating backgrounds can be challenging for me when creating a "scene". I thought it would be fun to change things up from an "ink blended background" to a striped background using paper strips!
My card measures 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 and fits into a slimline envelope from the Paper Studio line from Hobby Lobby. This stamp set was perfect for a large slimline card! So back to the background and a fun technique. Using two shades of blue cardstock, various widths of cardstock strips were cut. These were adhered lightest to darkest onto a white notecard. Over the striped background, a snow stencil from my stash was used with Broken China Distress Ink. To keep the snowy detail going, Shimmer Spray was spritzed liberally over the card. To finish the background, a snowy sentiment strip was die cut using the Slimline Borders Elle-ments.
All the images were Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating dies. Creating the scene was so much fun with these images and the background I created! Some images were adhered flat while others were adhered with foam adhesive.

Amy here with a darling new set called Layered Holiday Truck. Since it is officially fall, my truck is blue with some festive fall pumpkins!
To highlight this adorable truck, I used the Quilted Frame Elle-ments. To the oval behind the truck, the orange dusky sky was ink blended with orange ink. To keep it simple, a sentiment, from Fall Picnic, was curved onto a block and stamped in black ink. To keep this masculine, I layered my frame and scene onto kraft cardstock with no embellishements! BUT I can't wait to use this truck done in RED for the holidays!
