Happy Friday! Today I am sharing a fun interactive windmill scene. This certainly was a labour of love as it took longer than my usual projects! For this scene I used several products from the August release from Time For Tea Designs – the Windmill Builder Standalone Die, Windmill Add On die, Treat Yourself Clear Stamp Set, Plaid Background Clear Stamp Set, Hogs & Kisses stamp set and coordinating dies.
I started by colouring white cardstock with distress oxides and inks in the colours I wanted for each of the elements in the windmill and add on die sets. For the windmill, I used Faded Jeans, Chipped Saphire, Pumice Stone and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxides. I cut the elements out and assembled the windmill – for a great tutorial on how to do this, check out the instructional video on YouTube.
For the add on die set, I used the following Distress Oxides: Walnut Stain Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn, Lucky Clover and Picked Raspberry. I added some splatters to the greenery for interest. Next, I cut out all of the elements and adhered them to the card base after I had created the sky and the grass areas. I used Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Lemonade Distress ink for the sky and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the grass. This process took quite some time due to all the small elements, especially all of the flowers!
I stamped and cut the adorable critters from the Hogs & Kisses, Treat Yourself stamp sets and adhered them to the card. The butterfly and ladybug (inside the house!) are from the Fairy Garden stamp set; the little bird is from the Moovellous Clear Stamp Set.
To finish the card I stamped the sentiment from the Plaid Background Clear Stamp Set.
