Die Cut Watering Can and Flowers

Good Sunday morning.  I have a die cut watering can and flowers card to share with you today made using Rubbernecker Stamps Watering Can, Large Ivy, Flower Buds and Rectangle Combo #2.  I may have gone a little overboard with the ivy covered frame but but I really like the contrast of the all white with the colorful watering can, green ivy and flowers.  I think the tiny sparkling clear sequins adds interest and fills in the blank space. 

Check out how I made this die cut watering can and flowers.

The Ivy Frame

  • Cut the rectangle frame using white cardstock.
  • Cut several ivy sections using white cardstock.
  • Trim the ivy sections as needed and attach them to the frame using glossy accents.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the white card base.

Coloring the Watering Can

  • Cut the can using gray cardstock.
  • Apply Wild Honey ink to key spots on the can using a mini applicator and blend the color out on the body of the can.
  • Apply Rusty Hinge ink to key spots using a mini applicator to add depth of color and create a distressed appearance.

Check out how I made this ivy framed die cut watering can and flowers.

The Die Cut Watering Can and Flowers

  • Cut several sections of ivy using green cardstock.
  • Attach the ivy sections to the back of the watering can using glossy accents. 
  • Trim the ivy as needed to create a balanced arrangement.
  • Cut the flower buds using purple cardstock.
  • Form the flowers using a tiny tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Punch several 1/4″ circles, apply glossy accents to cover the circle and attach three flowers to each to create the puffy flowers.
  • Attach the flowers to the using glossy accents ivy to finish the arrangement.
  • Attach a double layer of mounting tape to the back of the watering can and a few rolled glue dots to the back of several flowers and attach the can to the card base.

Th Sparkling Clear Sequins

  • Apply tiny drops of glossy accents to the card base.
  • Pick up the tiny sequins with tweezers and attach them to the card base.

Check out how I made this foliage framed die cut watering can and flowers.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut watering can and flowers project.  I probably added way too many sparkling sequins but once I started adding them I just couldn’t seem to stop.  Are sparkling sequins used with a rusty old watering can pushing design a little too far out?  Maybe! Would it have been better with a couple small purple butterflies instead?  Maybe!  The white on white background is definitely in stark contrast with the distressed watering can but I like how it turned out. Thank you for coming by and I hope you have a great Sunday.

Die Cut Tree and Birdhouse Scene

Good Thursday morning.  I have a bright and cheerful die cut tree and birdhouse scene to share with you today using several dies by Rubbernecker stamps.  I used the Winter Tree, Picket Fence, Bird House, Small Ivy, Flower Buds, Tiny Flower Buds, Tall Terracotta Pots, Small Birds, Flower Stems and Grass.  I really like all the red and green against the soft blue background. 

Come see how I made this cheerful die cut tree and birdhouse scene.

  • Cut the tree using Kraft cardstock.
  • Swipe the Antique Linen ink pad directly to the tree to color and heat set.
  • Cut six small ivy sections using green cardstock and color the branches using a Light Walnut Copic marker.
  • Cut several sections of the individual leaves from the Small Ivy die using green cardstock.
  • Attach the individual ivy leaves to the tree branches using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the small ivy sections and attach them to key spots on the back of the tree to create depth and fullness.
  • Cut tiny flowers using red cardstock, form with the tiny tipped stylus and molding pad and attach to the branches using glossy accents.

Coloring the Flower Pots

  • Cut the flower pots using yellow cardstock.
  • Apply Wild Honey ink using a mini applicator to cover the flower pots.
  • Apply Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink using mini applicators to shade and create the appearance of terracotta.

The Flower Arrangements

  • Cut several sections of the small ivy.
  • Cut the flowers using red cardstock.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the ivy sections to the back of the pots using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flowers to the ivy using glossy accents to fill in the arrangements.

Come see how I made this die cut tree and birdhouse scene.

The Birdhouse and Birds

  • Cut the birdhouse using red cardstock.
  • Cut the roof and and base sections using white cardstock.
  • Attach the roof to the house using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Attach the base section to the house using glossy accents.
  • Cut the birds using red cardstock and color their beaks using a black marker.
  • Gently form the birds using the round tipped stylus and molding pad.

The Fence, Grass and Card Base

  • Cut the blue scene base 5.00″ x 3.75″.
  • Cut two sections of fence using white cardstock
  • Cut one section of grass using green cardstock.
  • Attach the main fence posts to the end of the fence using glossy accents.
  • Trim the fence sections to fit the scene and attach to the base using mounting tape.
  • Trim the grass section to fit the scene and attach using strips of mounting tape.

Assemble the Die Cut Tree and Birdhouse Scene

  • Cut several tiny pieces of mounting tape and attach to the upper back sections of the tree.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower trunk portion of the tree.
  • Tuck the tree in behind the fence and attach to the card base.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the birdhouse and attach to the scene base.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the flower pots and tuck them in behind the grass.
  • Apply tiny pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach them to the scene.
  • Cut several flower stems and tuck them in behind the grass and attach with glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching ivy leaves and tiny flowers to the birdhouse.

Die Cut Arbor Garden Scene

Good Monday morning.  My project today is a die cut arbor garden scene that I created using stamps from the Rubbernecker Stamps Outdoor Master and Fall Foliage stamp sets.  I framed the scene using the Nested Deckle Rectangle and created an arbor and fence using the Gate and Arbor set and added a flower bed along the fence with Small Ivy and Tiny Flower Buds.  I think the stamped background scene adds depth and draws the eye in through the gate and up the garden gate and up the path.  I may have ruined the scene a little by adding the gate because it mostly covered the little path that I created going up the hill. 

Come see how I made this die cut arbor garden scene.

Creating the Scene

  • Cut a piece of white cardstock to approximately 5.25″ x 4.00″.
  • Create a garden path for the scene using a stylus and foam tip and Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink.
  • Stamp the mini fern image from the Outdoor Master multiple times along both sides of the path using Peeled Paint ink to create a grassy area for the scene.
  • Blend the grass area using a stylus and foam tip to add depth.
  • Apply Vintage Photo ink to the tree stamp and stamp two times along the grass border.
  • Fill in the leaf area of the trees using the mini fern stamp, Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters ink.
  • Complete the scene by apply Tumbled Glass ink to the sky area using an ink blending tool.
  • Attach the scene to the blue card base.

Come see how I made this pretty die cut arbor garden scene.

The Deckle Frame, Gate and Arbor

  • Cut the frame using white cardstock and the two largest dies from the Nested Deckle Rectangle.
  • Cut the arbor and three gate sections using white cardstock.
  • Cut a section of grass using green cardstock.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the frame and attach the grass section, gate and arbor.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the framed fence and arbor and attach it over the scene background.
  • Cut the small ivy and tuck it in behind the grass and attach with glossy accents.
  • Cut three colors of flowers, form with the tiny tipped stylus and molding pad and attach to the ivy.
  • Finish by attaching the open gate to the scene using double stick tape.

 

Come see how I made this spring die cut arbor garden scene.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut garden arbor scene card.  As much as I love creating die cut scenes it is always fun to combine dies and stamps together on a project.  This card took me back ten years or more to a time when I began creating outdoor scenery around a stamped focal image.  Thank you for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
