Good Saturday morning. I have a colorful die cut fall tree scene with squirrels to share with you today with a sneak peek at the new Rubbernecker Winter Tree die. The tree is bare with no leaves and I will show it soon in a snowy scene with snow on the branches. I paired the tree with Tiny Leaves, Picket Fence, Chicken and Squirrels, Grass Set and the background layer was made using the Nested Rectangle Scallop set.
The Tree and Leaves
- Cut the tree using white cardstock and color with a walnut Copic marker.
- Cut two sections of the maples leaves using glossy accents.
- Apply Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade inks to the leaves using mini applicators.
- Gently form the leaves using leaf tool from the Garden Tool Kit and molding pad.
- Attach the leaves to the tree branches using glossy accents.
- Apply sparkle to leaves using Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay pen.
Color the Squirrels
- Cut the squirrels using white cardstock.
- Apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks using mini applicators.
Assemble the Die Cut Fall Tree Scene and Squirrels
- Cut the scalloped layer using blue cardstock.
- Cut the grass sections using green cardstock.
- Use the scalloped die to cut the front grass layer to create a matching scalloped edge.
- Cut the picket fence section using white cardstock.
- Attach the back grass section to the scalloped layer using double stick tape.
- Attach the front grass section to the scene using a thin strips of mounting tape.
- Tuck the tree in behind the grass and attach to the background using thin strips of mounting tape and rolled glue dots.
- Tuck the fence sections in behind the grass and attach with thin strips of mounting tape.
- Attach falling leaves in the sky area and tucked in around the grass and attach with glossy accents.
- Attach the squirrels in the scene with pieces of mounting tape.
I had lots of fun making this die cut fall tree scene with squirrels. Coloring the tiny leaves is a bit labor intensive but well worth the effort. I hope you enjoyed seeing my sneak peek of the tree and I hope you’ll check out the new Rubbernecker dies being released on Tuesday. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend.
