Good Thursday morning.  I have a bright and cheerful die cut tree and birdhouse scene to share with you today using several dies by Rubbernecker stamps.  I used the Winter Tree, Picket Fence, Bird House, Small Ivy, Flower Buds, Tiny Flower Buds, Tall Terracotta Pots, Small Birds, Flower Stems and Grass.  I really like all the red and green against the soft blue background. 

Come see how I made this cheerful die cut tree and birdhouse scene.

The Tree

  • Cut the tree using Kraft cardstock.
  • Swipe the Antique Linen ink pad directly to the tree to color and heat set.
  • Cut six small ivy sections using green cardstock and color the branches using a Light Walnut Copic marker.
  • Cut several sections of the individual leaves from the Small Ivy die using green cardstock.
  • Attach the individual ivy leaves to the tree branches using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the small ivy sections and attach them to key spots on the back of the tree to create depth and fullness.
  • Cut tiny flowers using red cardstock, form with the tiny tipped stylus and molding pad and attach to the branches using glossy accents.

Coloring the Flower Pots

  • Cut the flower pots using yellow cardstock.
  • Apply Wild Honey ink using a mini applicator to cover the flower pots.
  • Apply Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink using mini applicators to shade and create the appearance of terracotta.

The Flower Arrangements

  • Cut several sections of the small ivy.
  • Cut the flowers using red cardstock.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the ivy sections to the back of the pots using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flowers to the ivy using glossy accents to fill in the arrangements.

The Birdhouse and Birds

  • Cut the birdhouse using red cardstock.
  • Cut the roof and and base sections using white cardstock.
  • Attach the roof to the house using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Attach the base section to the house using glossy accents.
  • Cut the birds using red cardstock and color their beaks using a black marker.
  • Gently form the birds using the round tipped stylus and molding pad.

The Fence, Grass and Card Base

  • Cut the blue scene base 5.00″ x 3.75″.
  • Cut two sections of fence using white cardstock
  • Cut one section of grass using green cardstock.
  • Attach the main fence posts to the end of the fence using glossy accents.
  • Trim the fence sections to fit the scene and attach to the base using mounting tape.
  • Trim the grass section to fit the scene and attach using strips of mounting tape.

Assemble the Die Cut Tree and Birdhouse Scene

  • Cut several tiny pieces of mounting tape and attach to the upper back sections of the tree.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower trunk portion of the tree.
  • Tuck the tree in behind the fence and attach to the card base.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the birdhouse and attach to the scene base.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the flower pots and tuck them in behind the grass.
  • Apply tiny pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach them to the scene.
  • Cut several flower stems and tuck them in behind the grass and attach with glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching ivy leaves and tiny flowers to the birdhouse.
