Floral Window Card

Today I’m sharing a floral window card made using one of my favorite color combinations of purple, green and white. I made several samples using the window, flowers and ivy this past weekend at the Stamp and Scrapbook show in Orlando and the combination was a customer favorite.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Window 4 Pane, Mixable Flower Stack 5109D, Large Ivy and Small Butterflies.

Come check out how I made this pretty floral window card.

The Window

  • Cut the window using white cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window and attach to the card base.

The Flowers, Ivy and Butterflies

  • Cut one section of the mixable flower stack and an additional large flower using purple cardstock.
  • Place the flowers face down on the molding pad and roll the petals up on the larger flowers using a large round stylus and small tipped stylus on the smaller flowers.
  • Turn the flower sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the flower centers to push the petals up.
  • Apply glossy accents to the center of the flowers sections and attach the layers together to complete the full flower.
  • Cut the flower buds using purple cardstock.
  • Place the flower buds  face up on the molding pan and push down in the centers to form the flowers.
  • Cut the ivy sections using green cardstock form the leaves gently using the leaf tool.
  • Cut the small butterflies using purple cardstock.

Come check out how I made this elegant floral window card.

Assemble the Flowers, Ivy and Butterflies

  • Apply glossy accents to the tip end of the ivy sections and attach both to the left corner, one up and one across.
  • Attach the small flowers to the ivy sections using glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching three small butterflies to the window frame and openings using glossy accents.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my floral window card.  I appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Umbrella Beach Scene Card

Today I’m sharing an umbrella beach scene card made using new Rubbernecker beach themed dies that will be available soon on the store site.  I’m sorry that it’s been a while since I posted.  I’ve been busy making projects using all the new Rubbernecker dies and I will be sharing them over the next couple of weeks.  I also had a great time working at the Rubbernecker booth this past weekend at the Orlando Stamp and Scrapbook show.  I had the opportunity to meet so many new people and catch up with lots of good friends.

For this project I used the new Lifeguard Tower and Beach Umbrellas paired with the Sun Moon, Small Birds and Deckle Hills.

Come see how I made this umbrella beach scene card with die cuts.

The Water and Sky

  • Cut a piece of masking tape and attach it to the center of the card base.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass ink to the water portion of the base using an ink blending tool.
  • Remove the tape and apply Tumbled Glass to the sky area using an ink blending tool and a cloud template.
  • Lightly dab white embossing paste on to the water using your finger to create the sea foam.
  • Apply clear glitter to the paste while it is still wet to create sparkle.

Come see how I made this sunny umbrella beach scene card with die cuts.

The Die Cut Images

  • Cut the small umbrellas using aqua, yellow, red and white colored cardstock and attach the colored panels to the umbrella base using glossy accents.
  • Cut the lifeguard tower sections using gray, yellow, red and white cardstock.
  • Apply Vintage Photo ink to the fence rail and roof section of the tower using a mini applicator.
  • Attach the fence rail and roof sections to the tower using strips of mounting tape.
  • Cut the sun sections using yellow cardstock, attach them using double stick tape and apply shimmer using a Tonic shimmer pen.
  • Cut the small birds using white cardstock and apply markings on the wings using Pumice Stone ink and a mini applicator.
  • Cut the sand layers using brown cardstock and apply Antique Linen ink to the layers by swiping the ink pads directly over the paper.

Assemble the Scene

  • Attach the back layer of sand to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Attach the front sand layer to the card base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Use strips of mounting tape to attach the lifeguard tower, sun and umbrellas to the card base.
  • Apply tiny pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach them to the sky area.
  • Finish the scene by attaching a tiny red handle and a string to the small surfboard.

Come see how I made this fun umbrella beach scene card with die cuts.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have enjoyed seeing my umbrella beach scene card.  Checkout the new die section and I’ll keep you posted when they are available  for purchase.  There are lots of great dies.

Z Fold Birch and Deer

Good Tuesday morning.  Today I am sharing a Z fold birch and deer card.  I have had this tree scene idea rolling around in my head since I started playing with Z fold cards. I wasn’t sure I could make it work but it turned out to be quite easy.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Birch Forest paired with the Birch Trees, Deckle Hills, Deer Family, Leaf Group, Tiny Flower Buds and Small Birds to create the die cut scene.  I created the forest background scene using the 3 Pine Tree set, Fall Foliage set and Kittie Kits Outdoor Master set.  I used The Paper Cut Easel Card kit for the card base.

Come see how I made this spring Z fold birch and deer card.

The Background Scene

  • Attach Fall Tree stamp to an acrylic block.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the whole stamp and lightly touch the Vintage Photo ink pad to the lower portion of the trunk.
  • Stamp the tree three times across the card base.
  • Use the tiny fern image from the Outdoor Master to stamp Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Squeezed Lemonade ink to create the tree leaves.
  • Finish the background scene by stamping  several pine trees across the base using Peeled Paint ink.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass ink using an ink blending tool to create the blue sky area.

Come see how I made this summer Z fold birch and deer card.

The Deckle Hill Layers

  • Cut one Deckle Hills layer 11.00″ x approximately 1.50″. I cut the cardstock piece at 11.00″ inches, placed the die and ran through the machine. I lined up the die where the first cut ended and ran it through a second time to create the full 11.00″ piece.
  • Score the Deckle Hill layer at the 5.50″ and 8.25″ and set it aside to use on the front tree layer.
  • Cut a second Deckle Hill layer 5.3/8″ x 1.50″.
  • Attach the second piece to the right side of the card base using double stick tape.
  • Cut a third Deckle Hill layer 2.5/8″ x 1.50″
  • Attach the third piece to the inner fold section of the card base using double stick tape.
  • Cut four Deckle Hills sections 3.75″ wide x approximately 2.00″ tall.
  • Score the insert layers .50″ in from each end.
  • Apply double stick tape to each end of the insert layers. 
  • Attach the left side of the insert layers to the card base and allow the right side to remain free to attach later.

The Birch Tree Box Frame

  • Cut the Birch Forest die three times using white cardstock.
  • Apply light touches of Pumice Stone ink to the tree markings using a mini applicator.
  • Attach the three layers together using glossy accents, overlapping the frame edges to create the full 11″ inch tree base.
  • Score the tree layer at 5,50″ and 8.25″.
  • Attach the11.00″  Deckle Hill layer to the the tree base using double stick tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the right back side of the tree layer and attach to the scene base.
  • Apply double stick tape to the left back side of the tree layer and attach to the scene base.
  • Remove the double stick cover paper from the right side of the inserts layers and attach them to the inside of the tree layer.

Come see how I made this pretty Z fold birch and deer card.

Individual Birch Trees, Foliage and Flowers

  • Cut two sets of the individual Birch Trees.
  • Layer one st of the trees over top of the second and attach together using glossy accents.  Note:  Layering two trees together will create a stronger tree to stand up on their own inside the box.
  • Apply light touches of Pumice Stone ink to the tree markings using a mini applicator.
  • Apply glossy accents to the front bottom portion of the tree trunks and attach them to the grass insert layers.
  • Cut leaf group using green cardstock, cut the branches apart using snips.
  • Cut tiny yellow flower buds, form them using a stylus and molding pad and attach them to the foliage branches using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the flower branches behind the deckle hill layers and to the insert layers and attach using glossy accents.

Color the Deer and Complete the Scene

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink over the whole deer body.
  • Apply darker shades of Vintage Photo ink to the antlers, ears and body,
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the deer bodies and attach to the tree frame.
  • Attach a few small birds to finish the scene. 

Come see how I made this Z fold birch and deer card.

I am happy that my idea to use the Birch Forest die worked out so well to create my Z fold birch and deer card. The birch trees hide more of the background scene than I figured but I still like seeing them through the trees.  Thanks so much for  coming by and I hope you have a great day.
