My project today is a bright and cheerful die cut wheelbarrow and flowers card made using dies from Rubbernecker Stamps.  Before I talk about my project I want to let you know I will be working with Rubbernecker Stamps at the Scrapbook Expo in Schaumburg, IL this weekend.  If you are attending I hope you will come by and introduce yourself. 

I’ve made several cards with a distressed Wheelbarrow but I wanted to create this card today with a bright red wheelbarrow.  I created the frames using the Nested Rounded Corner Square set and filled the wheelbarrow with flowers made using the Tiny Flower Buds and foliage made using the Leaf Group.  I used the Grass Set at the base of the scene and filled the background with more foliage and flowers.

Come see how I made this bright and cheerful die cut wheelbarrow and flowers card.

The Frame and Grass

I cut the frame using green and red cardstock and the two largest dies from the nesting set.  I applied double stick tape to the green frame and attached it to the red frame.  I cut and attached two grass sections to the back of the frame using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base.

The Flowers

I cut red, white and pink flowers using Tiny Flower Buds die.  Next, I formed all the tiny flowers using the tiny tipped stylus and molding pad.  I created tiny flower clusters by applying glossy accents to the back of the flowers and attaching them in a circle formation on pieces of matching scratch cardstock.  I attached one flower in the center and then attached six flowers around the center flower. Once the flowers were secured in place and the glue was dry and I used my snips to cut around the cluster to create the round flowers.

The Die Cut Wheelbarrow and Flowers

I cut several sections of the Leaf Group and cut the branch sections apart to use for the arrangement in the wheelbarrow and in behind the grass border. I began filling the wheelbarrow by attaching the shorter sections of foliage with glossy accents.  I worked my way back with larger and larger sections of foliage, attaching the pieces with glossy accents until the arrangement was complete.  Next, I arranged and attached the red, pink and white flowers using glossy accents.  I tucked the foliage pieces in behind the grass and attached with glossy accents. I finished the grass border by attaching the flowers with glossy accents.  I added a touch of sparkle to all the flowers with a Spectrum Nair sparkle pen for the finishing touch..

Come see how I made this bright die cut wheelbarrow and flowers card.

I sure do appreciate you coming by today and I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut wheelbarrow and flowers project.  The cluster flowers were fun to make and I think they add an extra special touch to the arrangement.   If you are attending the Scrapbook Expo this weekend I sure do hope I get to meet you.
