I think that City Scene is my favorite stamp set ever. And the cards I am posting today have got to be amongst my my favorite cards that I have ever made. I hope you like them, too. There are just so many fun ways to combine these stamps and dies.
My first card is for this week's RetroSketches rs#88. I may have simplified the sketch a bit. There were a lot of lines in the sketch, and it was hard to keep track of everything. I stamped a few buildings in the background using Soft Stone ink. Most of the other pieces were die cut and layered. We are in New York on this card--possibly Brooklyn.
My next City Scene card uses this week's Sweet Sunday #196 sketch, rotated 90 degrees clockwise. I am excited because this is the first time I have ever played in this challenge. My city has hopped over the pond to London for this card. That tree behind the double decker bus is from Winter Hills. I left this one without a sentiment. There wasn't a good place for one, so I will just put something inside when I use the card.
This last (for today) City Scene card brings us back to New York for Christmas. Wouldn't that be fun in real life? I grew up in a suburb of New York, and we used to go into the City every year at Christmas time. Such a fun time to be in New York. This card is not for any challenge--just for fun.
My last card for today uses the Stamped Square Border technique explained in this week's Make it Monday #139 and the Dynamic Duos DD#77 colors. It is a CASE of Marybeth's card from earlier today. I loved her striped red and white square border with the sweet winter scene, so I made my own using the candy stick from Candy Cane Christmas and Winter Penguin. I used some tiny snowflakes from Snow Globe stamped in Brilliance Platinum Planet, and a little snowman from Tag-its #8.
