To celebrate the start of the CHF Summer Stamp Star Design Challenge we thought it would fun to have a little blog hop to help inspire you for the challenges!

Challenge 4 is to Make a Scene: Take elements from one set or many and build a scene in any style from realistic to cute. (Gallery opens at 9 a.m. Monday July 20, 2009 and closes at 9 a.m. on Monday July 26, 2009)

Never made a scene?  Not sure where to start?  I made up a few samples to help get your creative mojo flowing...

This first one was made using Kim Hughes Bear Hugs set.  Many of Kim's sets would work great for this challenge.

I just love the fun whimsical look of this scene.

I finally cut out my newest GM set, The Beach for this next card.  This set is perfect for creating a scene or use any of the great GM vehicles to build a scene around.

My very favorite way to make a scene is with any of the Scene it sets.  Most of these sets come with a huge variety of images so that you can create many different scenes. 

If you don't have any of the Scene it sets yet or you are new to scene stamping I would recommend the Beacon of Hope set to begin with.  It comes with three different light house images, sailboats, birds, and several great sentiments.  You will get tons of use out of this set and it makes it pretty easy to create a scene.
Here is a card that I made using this set.  

Still need some inspiration to get started making a scene?  Go check out the CHF gallery.  Just put in the key word scene and search...there are tons of great samples!  Have fun playing.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Now go check out the other blogs for some samples for the other challenges:

You are a scene master Kristine! Love how you showed all these lines! The bear one is my fav...although he looks like he might end up with a toasty!

Fantastic little scenes, Kristine! Sherrie beat me to it on the poor old bear's nose though - hope he's got something stronger than sunscreen on there, lol!
