Circle Framed Die Cut Butterfly

Good Monday morning.  My project today is a circle framed die cut butterfly card made using the Rubbernecker Nested Circle X Stitch set, 2 Part Butterfly # 1, Flower Buds, Flower Stems and French Script Background.  I’ve had the French Script Background and Nested Circle X Stitch for a while but this is my first time using them.  I thought the soft blue script looked pretty as a background for the decorative butterfly and the X stitch pattern on the frame adds another element of interest.

Come see how I made this pretty circle framed die cut butterfly card with a French script background and tiny flowers.

The French Script Background and Frame

I secured the large background stamp and cardstock in my MISTI, applied the Baby Blue ink to the stamp and stamped the image.  Next, I cut the stamped image layer to 4.25″ ti fit on the 4.50″ blue layer.  I applied mounting tape to the back of the blue layer and attached it to the card base.

The frame was cut using the two largest frames in the set.  I used my magnetic platform to secure the dies in place on the cardstock and cut.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the script layer.

Come see how I made this elegant circle framed die cut butterfly card with tiny flowers and a French script background.

The Butterfly and Flowers

I cut the butterfly sections and attached them together using glossy accents.  I formed the flower buds using my stylus and molding pad.  Next, I attached pieces of the flower stems to the base of the butterfly using glossy accents.  I attached several flowers to the stems in a cluster using glossy accents.  The butterfly was attached to the card base using a piece of mounting tape. 

Come see how I made this elegant circle framed die cut butterfly card with a French script background and tiny flowers.

I think the circle framed die cut butterfly card is so pretty and elegant.  Thank you for coming by and I hope you enjoyed seeing my project and that you have a great day.

Snowy Die Cut Bunny Scene

Good Sunday morning.  I have a sparkly snowy die cut bunny scene to share with you today made using dies and stamps by Rubbernecker Stamps. I thought it would be fun to use the largest die from the Nested Banner Stitch Set to create a small scene. The trees were stamped with evergreen trees from the Moose Set. I used one bunny from the Bunnies set and three birds from the the Small Birds set.  I embellished the neck of the bunny using one small leaf section from the Leaf Buds set.  The designer paper layer was cut using the largest dies from the Nested Rectangle Small Stitch set.

Come see how I made this chilly snowy die cut bunny scene using dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.

The Banner Trees and Snow Layers

I cut the banner die once and cut the bottom half of the banner a second time using white cardstock.  I stamped the trees across the banner several times using both the small and large tree and Peeled Paint ink.  Next I applied ink to a tree die, stamped it off once on scratch paper and then lightly stamped a second tree layer.  I repeated this step all the way across the scene to create the feel that the trees are far in the distance.  I used my deckle scissors to cut snow layers from the bottom half of the second banner.  I attached the back snow layer directly to the banner using ATG adhesive.  The front snow layer was attached using strips of mounting tape.  I attached the banner to the card base using mounting tape.

Come see how I made this fun snowy die cut bunny scene using dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.

Coloring the Bunny

The bunny was cut using white cardstock.  I used Antique Linen ink and a mini applicator to apply a light layer of ink all over the bunny.  Next, I applied Vintage Photo ink to the ears, back and feet portion of the bunny.  Check out my Coloring Animal Die Cuts tutorial if you would like to see step by step photos of how I colored the bunny.

Assembling the Snowy Die Cut Bunny Scene

I wanted to embellish the next of the bunny with pine and red sparkly berries.  I took one section of the leaf buds and cut thin slices in each leaf using my snips and attached it to the neck of the bunny with glossy accents.  Next, I attached 3 1/16″ punched red circles to the foliage using glossy accents and added sparkle to them using red Stickles.  I tucked the bunny in behind the snow layer and attached with a piece of mounting tape.  Since the bunny appears to be looking up I attached three birds in the sky using small pieces of mounting tape to make them all  look like they are interacting with each other.  I felt the scene could use one more element of interest so I applied white embossing paste and clear glitter to the snow layers. 

Come see how I made this sparkly snowy die cut bunny scene using dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.

Thank you for coming by today.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing my snowy die cut bunny scene card.

Shabby Chic Framed Poinsettia

I have two shabby chic framed poinsettia cards to share with you today for the last day of Dare to Get Dirty over at Splitcoaststampers.  I used  the Impression Obsession Large Poinsettia Set, Small Poinsettia Set, Ornate Rectangle Frame, Ornate Oval Frame, Pine Pair, Pine Sprig Set and Berry Branches.  Today is the second day in a row showing how I add dimension with my Crimper.  The crimped Kraft cardstock combined with crackled texture paste made a perfect shabby chic background for my poinsettias and ornate frames.

Come see how I made this lovely shabby chic framed poinsettia card.

The Crimped and Distressed Crackle Layers

I cut two 5.25″ x 4.00″ Kraft rectangle layers and ran them through my crimper.  I scraped the blade of my deckle scissors along the edges of the cardstock to distress and dug into the cardstock in a few spots to create tears.  I used a small plastic spatula to apply the crackled texture paste.  I dipped the spatula into the paste to get small amounts at a time and then ran the blade up and down on the crimped cardstock lightly to cover.  I purposely left spots uncovered to create the shabby look.  Since I am impatient I heat dried the paste with my heat gun and watched the slight crackle appear.

The Poinsettias and Pine

I used both sets of the poinsettias for these cards.  I used the small set for the first card and the large set for the second.  I cut green flower layers to use as the base for my flowers using the largest dies in each set.  I cut one full set of the large poinsettia set and three sets of the small poinsettias.  I turned the flowers face down on my molding pad and formed each petal using my large tipped stylus.  I turned the flowers face up and gently pushed down in the center to make the petals pop up.  The flower sections were attached together using glossy accents. I formed several yellow 1/8″ punched circles with my small tipped stylus and molding pad to fill in the center of the large poinsettia.  I inserted white pre made Nuvo Crystal Drops to the small poinsettias and attached with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this pretty shabby chic framed poinsettia card.

Assembling the Shabby Chic Framed Poinsettia Cards

The multi part ornate frames were cut and the individual sections were attached together on the back using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frames and attached them to the card base.

I cut multi sections of both of the pine die sets.  I used the larger pine pieces to create a base and to embellish the large poinsettia and attached them using glossy accents.  I used the small pine sprigs to create the bases for the small poinsettias and attached them using glossy accents.  The poinsettias were attached to the pine bases using glossy accents.  I cut several berry branches and attached small pink 1/8″ circles with glossy accents.  I tucked them in around the larger poinsettia to finish.  I tied a few strands of organdy ribbon together, heated to crinkle for aging and tucked it in under the top poinsettia on the first card and attached with glue dots. I added shimmer to the berries and large poinsettia using a shimmer pen.  I left the smaller poinsettias plain.

Question.  Which of the shabby chic framed poinsettia cards do you like best? I go back and forth but I think the first card is my favorite.  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great start to your weekend.
