Die Cut Flip Flops Beach Scene

Good Monday morning.  I have a fun die cut flip flops beach scene to share with you today using the Impression Obsession Better with Flip Flops as the focal point.  I paired it with Flip Flops, Beach Fence, Small Grass Border and Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.

I hope you'll come check out how I made this die cut flip flops beach scene.

The Sand, Ocean and Sky

I have to admit that the colors for the sentiment and ocean were chosen to match the flower designer paper that I used for the flip flops.  I used a stylus and foam tip to apply tan ink to the sand area of the scene.  I cut an additional strip of sand using my deckle scissors and and colored it to match the scene base.  I cut a piece of Eclipse masking tape, placed it across the middle of the scene layer and applied the navy ink with the stylus and foam tip.  The mask was removed and I used the stylus and foam tip along with a cloud stencil to create the clouds.  I dabbed the stylus foam tip on scratch paper several times before using it with the stylus since the ink was so dark.  I wanted the same shade of blue for the sky but only wanted light touches of it.

The Sea Foam

I heat dried the scene so the brown and blue ink would not seep out onto the white embossing paste.  Then I dabbed embossing paste on the water area of the scene to create the sea foam and sprinkled it with glitter before it dried to add sparkle.

Come check out how I made this die cut flip flops beach scene card.

The Frame, Grass and Fence

I used double stick tape to attach the two largest frame sections together and then attached the sand layer to the back bottom of the frame.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame and then attached it over the scene card base.  I colored the fence sections and bent them a little bit to make it appear old.  I tucked the fence and grass in behind the sand layer and attached using glossy accents.

Finishing the Die Cut Flip Flops Beach Scene

I cut the sentiment using dark blue paper to match the ocean and flowers in the flip flops.  Oooops…..it was a little to large to fit inside the sky area of the scene without overlapping the dark blue water and making it so you couldn’t read the last word.  I had no choice but to secure some of the sentiment to the top of the frame.  I rolled up a long strip of 1/4″ double stick tape and attached pieces of it to the back of several keys letters and attached it to the scene.

I cut the flip flops out of retired designer paper and attached the pieces together using glossy accents.  I finished by attaching the flip flops to the frame with pieces of mounting tape. 

I hope you'll come check out how I made this fun die cut flip flops beach scene.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut flip flops beach scene with the deep blue sea.  It is a bit unusual but I really like how it pops against the pure white frame and card base.

Fall Leaves With Die Cuts

Good Sunday morning.  I have a colorful fall leaves with die cuts card to share with you today.  I know we are in the middle of summer right now but I love playing with new toys. I  just got the Rubbernecker 3019 Splatter Leaves Stamps and 3019D Splatter Leaves Dies this week and couldn’t wait to see what I could do with them.  I used the 5131D Square Combo # 1 OPC to frame the sentiment and attach my leaves. 

Come see how I made this framed fall leaves with die cuts project.

The Sentiment

Did you know that Distress Inks stay wet long enough to emboss with them?  I use them to stamp and emboss sentiments all the time but I never remember to mention it.  I secured the stamp and cardstock in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment on white cardstock using Vintage Photo ink, applied Ranger super fine clear embossing powder and heated.  I use super fine powder for all my embossing.  The fine powder is especially perfect for fine sentiments.

The Frame

I applied double stick tape to the back of the two largest frames to attach them together.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it over the sentiment on the card base.

Come see how I made this framed fall leaves with die cuts card.

Coloring Fall Leaves with Die Cuts

I began by cutting two sets of leaves out using white cardstock.  I didn’t want to have the outline of the leaf stamped.  I just wanted the inner markings to show so I used a brown marker to apply the ink.  I lined up the acrylic block and stamp over each die cut leaf and stamped. I used mini applicators to apply inks to color the leaves.  I applied the Shabby Shutters, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick  in patches on the leaves and then used Wild Honey to shade over all three inks to blend them together.  Take a look at my Leaves with Distress Inks tutorial if you would like to see step by step pictures of my process.  I used a few different ink colors in the tutorial but the process is the same. I also have a little short video tutorial on YouTube.

Come see how I made this colorful framed fall leaves with die cuts card.

Thanks for coming by to see my fall leaves with die cuts project.  I hope you have a great Sunday and that you take some time to get your fingers inky.

Framed Beach Scene with Kittie Kits Stamps

I had a fun time today creating a framed beach scene with Kittie Kits Stamps using the Beach Master by Rubbernecker Stamps.  The frame was made using the 5132D Rectangle Combo #2 OPC frame.

Come check out my framed beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.

The Sand, Water and Sky

I started by applying the sand to the scene using  Antique Linen ink with a stylus and foam tip.  I applied a strip of Eclipse tape across the scene to create a mask for the water line and then applied Tumbled Glass ink with a stylus and foam tip.  I removed the mask and used a cloud stencil and an ink blending tool to apply Tumbled Glass ink to the sky.

The Fence and Sea Grass

I used Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo Distress markers to apply ink to the fence and sea grass stamps and stamped the images around the scene.  I used one of the sand images and Vintage Photo ink to stamp texture around the sea grass and then used a mini applicator to sponge brown to the areas around the sea grass and fence.  I wanted to keep the center of the sand lighter to give the impression of a path out to the ocean.

 

Come check out my summery framed beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.

Completing the Framed Beach Scene with Kittie Kits Stamps

I applied touches of white embossing paste with my finger to create sea foam in the water and washing up on the sand.  Then I sprinkled the embossing paste with clear glitter to add a touch of sparkle to the simple scene.  I finished the scene by attaching the frame to the scene using strips of mounting tape.

Come check out my framed pretty beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.

Rubbernecker produced the Kittie Kits ” Cause a Scene” Beach Master set back in 2008 and I had such a wonderful time playing with the images.  Although I mostly use dies in my crafting now I still love creating a framed beach scene with Kittie Kits stamps.  You can take a look at my step by step beach scene tutorial if you would like to see how I made this scene. I hope you are enjoying your weekend and I appreciate you coming by.
