Spicing up Scene Cards with Stencils feat Impronte d'Autore



 Hi everyone! Today I am back with another mini video series showing you how to create a scene card using some marvelous stamps by Impronte d'Autore in their Alice in Wonderland collection.
I love scene cards and I have a lot of fun creating them, and this time I decided to do something different and to use stencils to give my card a more whimsical and cartoon-like look. And, I have to say, I am pretty happy with how it turned out! :)
I colored the images from the set "Regina di Cuori" (Queen of Hearts) with Spectrum Noir and Copic Markers, and I altered sligthly one of the trees to make it look as if there was some fresh red paint dripping from one of the roses. That's because I wanted my scene to capture the moment when the Playing Cards were in the process of painting the white roses with red paint to avoid being beheaded by the Queen of Hearts. Kinda scary :P


Ciao a tutti! Oggi torno sul blog con una card e una mini video serie in cui vi mostro come creare una scena sulle vostre card utilizzando i meravigliosi timbri della serie di Alice nel Paese delle Meraviglie di Impronte d'Autore. 
Adoro questo tipo di card, e stavolta ho deciso di provare qualcosa di diverso e di utilizzare degli stencil per conferire un look ancora più particolare alla mia scena. E devo dire che il risultato mi piace parecchio! :)
Ho colorato le immagini dal set Regina di Cuori con i Copic e i pennarelli Spectrum Noir, e ho leggermente modificato uno degli alberi per dare l'impressione che la vernice rossa, ancora fresca, stesse colando da una delle rose. E questo perchè volevo riprodurre la scena in cui le Carte da Gioco dipingono le rose bianche con la vernice rossa per non essere decapitate dalla Regina di Cuori. Da brividi :P



I then moved on to building my scene. For each landscape element, I die cut some Fabriano Bristol Smooth carstock (very similar to Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock) using a die with the shape I needed, I added color with Distress Inks, and then I used stencils to add a whimsical touch to my scene. Here is the list of all the products I used for each of the landscape elements

Mama Elephant Landscape Trio dies
Distress Inks in Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron

Sun:

Mi sono poi dedicata alla costruzione della scena. Per ciascun elemento del mio paesaggio ho ritagliato del cartoncino Bristol liscio della Fabriano con una fustella della forma corrispondente e ho poi aggiunto colore coi Distress Ink e texture con degli stencil. Ecco la lista di tutti i prodotti utilizzati su ciascuno degli elementi del paesaggio.

I popped up the hills and some of the trees with some craft foam, and with the images I hadn't used on my card front I decorated the inside of my card. I added the smile on the Sun using the Cheshire Cat image in the set Stregatto (i.e. Cheshire Cat) by Impronte d'Autore and doing some selective inking.

I also created a mini series on my YouTube channel where I show how I made this card. One of the videos shows the scene building process, and in the other one I share the coloring for the images in this card. You can watch it down below or directly on my YouTube channel.

Ho incollato le colline e alcuni alberi alla base della card utilizzando la gomma crepla, e con le immagini avanzate ho decorato l'interno della card. Ho timbrato solo il ghigno dello stregatto sulla parte centrale del sole utilizzando uno dei timbri del set Stregatto, anch'esso di Impronte d'Autore.

Ho anche creato una mini serie sul mio canale YouTube, in cui vi mostro come ho realizzato questa card. Il primo video è focalizzato sulla costruzione della card, mentre nel secondo mostro come ho colorato le immagini con i pennarelli Spectrum Noir e i Copic. Potete guardare i video in italiano qui sotto, o direttamente sul mio canale YouTube
E, se vi saranno piaciuti, non dimenticatevi di farmelo sapere lasciando un like e un commento! E iscrivetevi per non perdervi i video che pubblicherò in futuro! :)





And that's it for today! I really hope you liked this card and enjoyed the video!

Thank you all so much for stopping by, and have a great day!

E questo è tutto per oggi! Spero davvero che la card e il video vi siano piaciuti! Vi lascio anche un link alla prima mini serie che ho realizzato con i timbri della serie di Alice nel Paese delle Meraviglie di Impronte d'Autore, che potete trovare qui. Queste immagini mi piacciono tantissimo!

I love this Alice series and what you have done with it. How do I navigate the site to order if I don't speak the language? How much is shipping to the U.S.? Or does a U.S. company carry their items?

BonnieDD said...

Also do they even ship to the U.S. Forgot to include e-mail in previous post if you could send it there. Thanks

Hello Bonnie, thank you for your comments! The website has an English version, if should be easier to navigate if this way. Concerning shipping to the US I will get back to you as soon as I have more information on the matter. You asked to send an email but I can’t find it, could you please send it to me if you prefer me to contact you there? Thank you and have a nice day :)

I just got an answer, I hope you will read this. They do ship to the US, and if you’d like to purchase their stamps you can send them an email telling them which products you would like to purchase, they will calculate the shipping costs and get back to you. Hope this helps!
