Today, I'm sharing two scene cards that feature the new and adorable Little Agenda Trains stamp set. This set is an awesome addition to the Little Agenda sets because it allows the Little Agenda friends to go places on the little trains. So cute and fun!!

For the first card, I also included the cutest elves from the new Little Elf Agenda stamp set along with the new Scripty Xmas stamp set for the sentiment. 


To begin, I Copic colored the images from the Little Agenda Trains and Little Elf Agenda and cut them out with the Little Agenda Trains Creative Cuts and Little Elf Agenda Creative Cuts. I put them aside to use later.

I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and ink blended it with Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide. Once the inks dried, I white heat embossed the sentiment "Merry Christmas" from the new Scripty Xmas stamp set. After, I spritzed it with water and added splatters of diluted white paint to give it a snowy background.


On top of the background panel, I adhered the mountain panel I die-cut using the Snow Capped Mountains Creative Cuts. I added some color to the mountains using Twisted Citron Distress Oxide.


I foam mounted a snowy hill panel on top of the mountain panel that I die-cut using the Landscape Trio Creative Cuts. Before mounting it, I inked blended it with Cracked Pistachio to give it some color and stamped the train track from the Little Agenda Trains.


To finish, I adhered the elves behind the snowy hill and foam mounted the images with the train to the train track for added dimension.  


For the second card, I used the Little Agenda Trains with two of the older stamp sets, City Sidewalks and Me and My Yeti to help build my scene.

To begin, I Copic colored the images from all three stamp sets I mention above and cut them out with Little Agenda Trains Creative CutsCity Sidewalks Creative Cuts and Me and My Yeti Creative Cuts. 


 I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"  and ink blended the panel with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide. Once the ink dried, I white heat embossed the sentiment "Merry Christmas" from Scripty Xmas. To add texture to the sky, I spritzed it with water. 


On top of the background panel, I added two hill panels that were die-cut with On the Hills Creative Cuts. I lightly inked the top of the hills with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide to give it some color.


To finish, I adhered the colored images to the front of the card as shown. I foam mounted the train images to give it some dimension. 

I hope you enjoyed my projects. Thank you so much for stopping by!
Happy stamping!
