1.  Stamped and colored my image.
2.  The image was cut in 6 one inch squares across and 6 one inch squares down. This will yield 36 squares.
4.  The squares were run through an Xyron 1.5 inch create-a-sticker tool.  This will allow you to reposition the squares as needed.
5.   I placed a light score line on my black card stock to use as a guide and removed one square at a time from the Xyron adhesive and placed them on the black card stock.
6  Trim the black card stock to allow for a 1/4 mat
7.  Place on a Cantaloupe colored  card stock and trim to allow a 1/4 inch mat.
8.  Place on black card stock and trim to allow a 1/4 inch mat.
9.   Stamp, color and mat a small version of the Stampscape scene and mat.
10.  Stamp and mat your sentiment for a completed card.
Thirty six one inch squares make a very large card.  I elected to frame mine.  It worked beautifully in a shadow box frame.

  1. You did another awesome job with these stamps, Linda! I just love seeing all of your scenic creations, but your other cards are another wonderful source of inspiration! Too many people want my scenic cards to show off, so this would be a great way to give them something more suitable for framing. Thanks again for another great tutorial!

  2. Good question Linda!!! 😀 The gorgeous sketch that Regina made for us to follow clearly stated 1 inch squares and I counted 6 across and 6 down.... and i always do what I am told... (ya right......!) but this time I did. There is no way I could get it in the mail so I bought a shadow box, framed it and presented it to a friend for her office. She is the Director of Social Service for Calaveras County and people really seem to like the picture.

    You are absolutely right.... will not fit into an A2! (Big Smile!)
    Hugs, Marie

  3. Stunning card Marie. I love their stamps and have a lot of them but do not know how to use them properly. I'll
    check out your tutorial!

  4. Wow! What a fantastic job you did on this--looks like a place I would love to go to!

  5. Great scenic card. Easy directions to follow; I love making scenic cards. Just wondered if this is a standard A2 card or larger. You said 36 inchies make a large card but you decided to frame this one. Is this the larger size pictured -- just curious. Thanks.

  6. Marie, What an awesome card!!!

  7. Very beautiful. Love the way you've put it all together. Edna

  8. Absolutely stunning and so hypnotic. I could look at it for hours! 😀
