Create a Scene with the Picture Changer

Welcome back everyone! I’ve been itching to make this card since I got the stamp set and finally got around to it. Today I’m sharing how I was able to incorporate a scene into my magic picture changer from Lawn Fawn.


I have a video that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel. It goes over the details a lot more!


I used numerous stamp sets in my scene including You Are Sublime, So Jelly and Get Well Before and After. I stamped my images onto Lawn Fawn White card stock with Jet Black ink and colored with copic markers. Then used the coordinating dies to cut them out with my Gemini Jr.

Next, I started working on my background. I ink blended Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink for my ocean floor. Then die cut with the Stitched Hillside Borders die.

My background is stenciled with Peacock Feathers with the Mini Cloud Stencil from MFT. Using a piece of Mermaid card stock I ink blended Blueprint Sketch at the very bottom and then added Peacock Feathers with my Life Changing Blender Brushes. I used the Stitched Waves Border to die cut from this piece of card stock.

I attached the waves to my cloud stenciled background. Then lined up the frame from the Picture Changer Add On and ran it through my Gemini Jr. I couldn’t find my shim but it still cut most of it out. I had to trim a few edges but otherwise worked well. This is how you can incorporate your entire scene into your picture changer. The frame is cut from the background and we will use both pieces for the card.

Next, I create my picture changer scene by stamping my whale from the Get Well Before and After stamp set. I created masks using Simon Says Stamp Masking Paper and attached over my image. Then ink blended Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch which will match my water I created.

To start assembly, I add the cloud background that I had trimmed down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ to a piece of Peacock card stock that I’ll be using as my card base. Once my magic picture changer is put together, I added it to the area it was die cut out of using a double layer of foam tape. I love how everything lines up!

Then I attach the ocean bottom with foam tape so it overlaps the picture changer window a little but not enough that it will prevent my mechanism from moving. Super cool right?!

The final step is adding all of my images to the scene. For the sentiment, I die cut a banner from Mermaid card stock using the Fancy Wavy Banners. I stamped the sentiment from Get Well Before and After using Embossing ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder.

I have a fun idea for the turtle on this stamp set too! I hope you enjoyed today’s card. Be sure to head to my video HERE for more details on the assembly.
