Today I’m sharing a scarecrow and pumpkins card made using several newly released dies by Rubbernecker Stamps. I used the Scarecrow, Baskets, Pumpkins and Ivy, Corn Stalks, Birds, Deckle Hills and Rectangle Combo #4.
Before I start my description I would like to invite all of you who live in the Chicago area to come over to the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Schaumburg this weekend. I am excited to be demonstrating dies in the Rubbernecker Stamps booth. And, I’m very excited that Ken Oliver will be demonstrating his wonderful Color Burst products in the Rubbernecker booth as well.
The Frame, Ground Layer and Corn Stalks
- Cut the frame sections using white cardstock and the ground layers using green cardstock.
- Attach the three frame sections together using double stick tape.
- Attach the grass layer to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
- Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the blue sky layer card base.
- Cut the cornstalks using green cardstock, tuck them in behind the grass layers and attach using glossy accents.
- Cut the scarecrow parts using a variety of designer paper and cardstock colors.
- Assemble the parts and pieces using double stick tape, glossy accents and mounting tape.
- Attach the scarecrow to the woodgrain stakes, tuck in behind the corn stalks and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
The Basket and Pumpkins
- Cut the basket using woodgrain cardstock and apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink with mini applicators to add depth of color.
- Cut the pumpkins using yellow cardstock.
- Apply Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge ink to the pumpkins using mini applicators.
- Color the stems using a brown marker.
- Attach three pumpkins to the back of the basket using mounting tape.
- Tuck the basket of pumpkins in behind the grass layer and attach using mounting tape.
- Tuck the loose pumpkins around the basket and attach using mounting tape.
- Add a touch of softness around the pumpkins by attaching a few smaller corn stalks using glossy accents.
- Finish the scene by attaching the black crows using small pieces of mounting tape.
I had lots of fun making this fall scarecrow and pumpkins card. If you would like more scarecrow and pumpkin inspiration you can check out my Scarecrow Z Fold Box card using many of these same dies. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great die.
