Heartfelt Creations Wilderness Retreat Scenes

Howdy! Today I have two cards I created using the Heartfelt Creations Wilderness Retreat Collection. I got several of the sets because my husband and I love the mountains. For these particular cards my husband asked me to make a card with just mountains and the flying bird. When I started I just wasn’t seeing it. So off I went and got carried away creating a much different scene than he was wanting so I reeled it back in and created a second card like the wanted it. Sometimes your tangent has to happen so you can picture the original request. You card makers will probably get that.

Here is what he wanted.

Heartfelt Creations Create a 'scape Backcountry

For the background I did a watercolor wash with mostly blue with a few touches of purple. I used watercolor paper.

The mountains and trees are stamped, die cut from watercolor paper and colored with watercolors.

The bird is stamped, die cut from watercolor paper and also colored with watercolors.

The frame around the scene is die cut with ink blended over it.

When I went off on a tangent this is what I created which lead me to creating the more simple card.

Heartfelt Creations Create a 'scape Trout Lake

A lot of the same things were done with this card. The background is watercolor wash. Everything is painted with watercolors except the fish. I used a metallic pen for that. The mountains are stamped directly on the background. The trees and lake are die cut and all one scene. The bird is also die cut. The frame on this one is not a woodgrain look and just die cut out of brown cardstock. The scene and frame is popped up with foam.

Heartfelt Creations Create a ‘Scape Backcountry Stamp

Hello to you all! I got these new stamps recently and they very cool. There are several sets that go with the create a ‘scape theme. What is cool about them is that you build a scene and the outdoor mountain vibe.

So to create this I used three different stamps pieced/stamped together to make the whole scene. Also a few things are die cut.

The first step was to stamp the three scene pieces and line them up to make the whole scene. Below is the stamp set and die set so you can see what I mean. You don’t have to do it this way but this is what I did. Then do some masking and color blending on the background. Then I die cut the canoe and a few things around it, the wolf, the big tree and the cabin. I colored everything and glued the pieces on to the scene. I used Oxide Distress inks and Copics to color the scene. There is a few rough spots but not bad for my first time doing this. I sent this to my brother for his birthday.

Here is the stamp set and dies since it is kind of hard to explain and the links so that you can see more examples and the rest of the stamps and dies if you are interested. I have nothing to do with Heartfelt Creations but I like the company and these stamps are really cool to me. They are part of the Wilderness Retreat Collection.
