Country Scene

I love to create flowers with Susan Tierney-Cockburn's flower die sets, but I also love to create scenes working with her CountryScape die sets.  

This is a 6-inch square card.  All the CountryScape pieces were die cut using white 100 lb Soft Finish Cardstock.  A variety of Susan's PanPastels and Distress Inks were used to color the background and each die cut piece.

Susan's Clouds and Grass Stencil was used to create the cloudy sky.  

Garden Notes Land & Sea die set was used to die cut the barn background.  A variety of colors were sponged on the ground below the barn - yellows, oranges, red, brown and green.

The CountryScapes Nantucket Fence was die cut three times and lightly sponged with Gray PanPastels.

Two CountryScapes Woods 1 trees were die cut and colored.  For the leaves I used were die cut using the Leafy Branch 4 die set.  The leaves were colored in Fall colors.

The CountryScapes Woods 4 die set was used to die cut the pine tree.  A portion of the bottom of the tree was cut off, so it fit behind the fence.

Using the Adventure Edges die set, four grass pieces were cut.  Each blade of grass was cut, using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Scissors, to create thinner blades of grass.  Two strips of grass were glued behind the bottom of the fence and two pieces were glued to the front of the fence.

Use the CountryScapes Backyard 1 die set to die cut the tall grass next to the birch tree on the right.  Use the same set to die cut the plant next to the birch tree on the left.  Use the Garden Notes Sunflower die set to die cut small yellow flowers to put on the green plant on the left. 

Use the CountryScapes Critters 6 die set and die cut three turkeys.  Color and attach them using dimensional tape.  

Use the CountryScapes Critters 2 die set and die cut the flying bird and three of the small birds.  Attach two of the small birds to the fence and one bird in the tree.  Attach the flying bird at top of card.
