Daytime Scene and Nighttime Scene Cards | Craft Stash | Textures Woodland Collection

Updated: Apr 14

Hello crafty friends, recently I did a collab with Lou Collins and Craft Stash. Lou and I both created Springtime projects using products from her Woodlands Collection (make sure to Subscribe to the Back In Stock to be notified when the entire collection is back in stock) from Craft Stash. The Woodlands Collection of products came out during the Fall and we wanted to share with you ways to take your seasonal products and use them all year long. You can find Lou's video linked in my video over on my YouTube Channel.

Daytime & Nighttime Scene Cards:

I used the same products on both of my cards today. I made two square cards that measured 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". So that will give you a scale of actually how big the dies from the Layering Squirrel & Hedgehogs Dies actually are that I used on my cards. On my first card I used the super cute squirrel die set (which by the way I had been eyeing since the die set released). I started off the cards by doing all my background die-cutting first from both white cardstock and some of the pattern paper from the Vintage Print Woodland Paper Pad that I colored with a little ink blending using my Distress Oxide Inks. This allowed me to just sit and play with the elements to create the perfect backdrops.

As I was die cutting the elements for the card I also took the Woodlands Toadstool Mushrooms Die Set and cut out so many that I still have a few to play with (I just put the extra back in packaging the dies come in so I can use them later). Once I had all the die-cutting complete I started to work ink blending my background panels.


I used my Distress Oxide Inks for all the ink blending. This made it super easy since I had them out already. The only difference to ink blending a daytime scene and a night time scene is two things. One is the colors you use, for instance the colors I used for the skies. You are not going to use the same colors, so with just an easy switch of the color palette I could create both. The next thing is that the light will hit differently on a night scene than a day time scene. As you can see in the photos of both cards.

For the background panel of the daytime scene (pictured above) I also added in a tree line using the birch trees from the Woodlands Birch Trees A5 Clear Stamp Set. I didn't realize at first that the image I used was a layering stamp (I kind of felt stupid) it took me a good ten minutes to figure out that it was. I also used this same stamp set in the background of the night time scene. I just used the silhouette tree image and stamped them in Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink.

For the night time scene I used more purples, pinks, and oranges to make it look as if the sun had set in the sky. I also flicked on a little water panel to give the illusion of stars. I colored both the hedgehog and squirrel die-cut pieces with my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Brush Markers (I used markers from both Set 1 and Set 2) to add color to each of them. There are two different sets of the TriBlend Brush Markers; there's the Original Set of TriBlend Brush Markers and the Extended TriBlend Brush Markers Set. Having both you can fill in any color gaps in your collection. This made it super easy to have a lot of definition to the critters and allowed me to add the light hitting them in the right way.

I finished off both cards with sentiments from the Woodlands Ferns & Leaves Sentiments Clear Stamp & Die Set. I stamped the sentiments in WOW's Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Ink onto some Pitch Black Cardstock (from Hero Arts) and covered them with WOW Detail White Embossing Powder. Once I had heat set the embossing powder I used the coordinating dies to cut out each sentiment and added them to the card front. Add I tucked in some of the fern die cuts I had made around the card as well as adding some Stardust Stickles to the inside of each of the mushroom tops.
