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.
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.
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.
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.
