Build a Scene – Christmas Cards

Hi everyone

Happy Friday.

I have spent the morning giving one of the girls (Alfie the hen) a pedicure. Or should that be manicure?  I saw her hobbling a little bit so I washed her feet to see what was wrong and decided to trim her nails at the same time as they were looking a bit long.  She sat there quiet happily whilst I washed her feet with a soft tooth brush.  They are funny birds.

Here are today’s cards using another new set from Crafty Individuals.

Christmas night

Christmas Day


 I know some of my crafty friends like creating scenes with stamps. These work brilliantly.  I made these cards really quickly and added the fir tree and turned them into Christmas cards but they can be used for any scenes you wish to create, whatever the season or occasion.
I do think that they are a great size and could easily be mixed and matched with other stamps you may already have in your stash.

Crafty Individuals Stamps used:
Build a Landscape CI 460
Large Christmas Tree CI 462

Thank you for looking
Take care and have a lovely weekend.

    I love these cards Florence… REALLY love them.
    The tree is perfection …. but the thing which really makes me long to be in the picture is … The Cottage. It looks like, reminds me of, the cottage in the film: The Holiday, starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet. The cottage in that film reminds me of the cottage we used to live in before we moved South, to be nearer to our daughter, son-in-law and their (at the time) newly born son (Little Cobs). I really miss that cottage. (And still go through the photo’s of it, inside/outside/garden that I’ve got stored on the ‘puter here). But … we were needed here, and I gained Little Cobs. So I think I won. lol.

    Aw look. I’ve gone off on a memory! tsk tsk.
    Back to the card… I love the colouring of both the added tree, and the background images. The card you’ve coloured the house bricks, with the darker sky, looks like a scene at around dusk.

    The card where the house isn’t coloured, has a kind of cold wintery morning feeling to it. I love that you’ve coloured the door though, as it draws the eye in and gives a feeling of life being behind that door.

    Love them both Florence. Great Makes.

      Thank you Cobs. I think you definitely won with little Cobs 🙂 Freddie likes the film “The Holiday”. Shhhh don’t tell anyone. He rarely watches tv but he likes that film. To be honest I tease him about it but it is a great film. It has the feel good factor doesn’t it.

    Ah, the welcoming red door. It quite invites the eyes to enter in. Both cards are very pretty, Florence. Your hen story is sweet. I can’t imagine a hen staying still for any kind of grooming, let alone nail cleansing and clipping. I guess that shows how much I don’t know about the animals.Quite fascinating.

    Blessings, my friend,

    Such beautiful cards Flo. It’s hard to pick a favourite but I really like this little stamp set and I love what you’ve done with it. It’s amazing how different cards can look, just by changing the colours that you’re using. Wishing you a lovely weekend. Happy crafting, Sandra x

    I’m one of these scene lovers… And I bought the set… now I just need some creativity. Failing that I might CASE your beautiful card!

      Thank you Christine. Enjoy your new stamps! You will love them. I can promise, you will not be short of ideas when you start using this set. I am always happy for projects to be cased and delighted if anyone wants to.
      Hugs Flo x

    I thought the same as Cobs, it is the cottage from The Holiday. Apparently that cottage has a big following! I admire ‘scene’ cards, and these are super!

    Love these stamps, you have created two wonderful winter Christmas scenes.
    I like the snow effects on your page, I thought I was seeing things at first.
    Your hens are lucky birds with you taking care of them so well and sound well behaved.

    Both look so beautiful! Love the scenes in both colours! Great inspiration on how to use the new stamps! Hope your birds stay warm also? Hugs, Gerrina
