Good Saturday morning. Today I’m sharing a rustic die cut farm scene made using the newly released Rubbernecker Stamps 5201-01D Barn and 5201-03D Tractor. I used several other dies to fill in the scene and you can find them all listed below. It was so much fun putting all the different die cut elements together. Have you had a chance to check out all the new dies in the Rubbernecker February die release? There are so many fun images.
Assemble The Barn
- Cut the barn base out using red cardstock.
- Cut the roof, door and window out using black cardstock.
- Attach the roof, door and window to the barn base using glossy accents.
Assemble the Tractor
- Cut the tractor parts out using red, gray and black cardstock.
- Attach the tires to the tractor base using mounting tape.
- Apply Rusty Hinge ink to the tire covers and trim pieces using a mini applicator and attach in place using glossy accents.
- Cut a piece of gray cardstock, apply rusty hinge ink and then attach to the backside of the tractor using glossy accents to fill in the motor grill.
I originally made a green and yellow tractor that reflects the colors of John Deere. When I placed it in the scene it blended in too much with the green grass and foliage so I created another using red. I couldn’t resist sharing a picture. I think tractor is so cute.
The Frame, Grass and Foliage
- Cut a 5.50″ x 4.25″ piece of red cardstock.
- Cut the deckle layer out of the red piece to create the frame.
- Cut three layers of grass using green cardstock.
- Attach one grass section to the front of the frame using double stick tape.
- Attach two grass sections to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame and attach to the blue card base.
- Cut two tree top sections and one fence using Kraft cardstock and apply Antique Linen ink using the direct to paper technique..
- Cut the tiny leaves using green cardstock and attach them to the tree branches using glossy accents.
The Birds and Ducks
- Cut the birds using red cardstock and apply black ink to the beaks.
- Cut the ducks using yellow cardstock and apply Wild Honey ink to the bodies using a mini applicator.
Assemble the Die Cut Farm Scene
- Tuck the barn in behind the grass layer and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
- Attach the fence sections to the card base using mounting tape.
- Apply tiny pieces of mounting tape to the back of several key leaves and branches and attach to the frame and card base.
- Cut the Leaf Group foliage apart and tuck the pieces in behind the grass sections and attach using glossy accents.
- Attach the tractor in place using pieces of mounting tape.
- Attach the ducks in the scene using pieces of mounting tape.
- Finish the scene by attaching birds in the tree branches and on the card base using small pieces of mounting tape.
This die cut farm scene was so much fun to make. There is something so appealing to me about cutting out pieces of paper and assembling them to create a dimensional scene. Do you enjoy creating scenes on your paper crafting projects? I hope you’ll take some time this weekend to create your favorite style of card. Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
