Sunny Beach Scene Card and Rubbernecker Design Team Blog Hop

Today I’m sharing a sunny beach scene card to “celebrate summer” along with the Rubbernecker Stamps design team.  Nothing represents summer to me more than going to the beach, relaxing under a beach umbrella and watching the waves roll in.  My project was made using the new Beach Umbrella, Chaise Lounge, Deckle Hills, Waves, Sun Moon, Grass #2, Small Birds and the Rectangle Combo #4

Come see how I made this shiny sunny beach scene card with Rubbernecker dies.

The Frame, Water, Sand and Cloud Background

  • Apply Tumbled Glass ink to the card base using an ink blending tool and cloud template.
  • Use Kraft cardstock to cut the sand layer and apply Antique Linen ink by swiping the ink pad directly to the cardstock.
  • Cut the wave layers using aqua cardstock and apply white embossing paste and clear glitter.
  • Apply the sand layer and wave layers to the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and wave layers and attach to the card base.

Come see how I made this sparkly sunny beach scene card with Rubbernecker dies.

The Lounge, Umbrella, Sun and Birds

  • Cut the lounge using red cardstock and the umbrella using red and white cardstock and attach it to the scene using thin pieces of mounting tape.
  • Create a towel by attaching thin strips of red cardstock to a small piece of white cardstock using glossy accents. Use snips to cut fringe along the bottom of the towel. Attach the towel over the arm the lounge using double stick tape.
  • Attach the white umbrella sections to the red umbrella base using glossy accents.
  • Attach the umbrella pole to the card base with double stick tape and the umbrella to the card base using mounting tape.
  • Cut the sun using bright yellow cardstock and attach to the card base using mounting tape.  Apply shimmer to the sun using a shimmer pen.
  • Cut small birds and color the wings using a gray marker and attach the to the card base with small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Finish by attaching a few grass sprigs to the scene using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this sunny beach scene card with Rubbernecker dies.

Beach Truck and Surfboards

Today I’m sharing a beach truck and surfboards card.  I just can’t seem to stop making beach cards with the new Rubbernecker dies.  This time I decided to create a flower power beach truck with a load of surfboards. I have been demonstrating at  Scrapbook Expo shows with Rubbernecker and one of the questions I get asked most is where  I get my card ideas.  I use Google to search for photos of subjects and usually come up with great ideas.  I was inspired by truck and surfboard photos found here and flower power truck photos found here.   My project was made using the new Beach Umbrella, Palm Trees and surfboards from the Lifeguard Tower set.  I paired them with the Truck, Sun Moon, Deckle Hills, Grass #2 and Small Birds.

Come see how I made this beach truck and surfboards.

The Water and Sky

  • Cut a piece of masking tape and attach it to the center of the card base.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass ink to the water portion of the base using an ink blending tool.
  • Remove the tape and apply Tumbled Glass to the sky area using an ink blending tool and a cloud template.
  • Lightly dab white embossing paste on to the water using your finger to create the sea foam.
  • Apply clear glitter to the paste while it is still wet to create sparkle.

Come see how I made this fun beach truck and surfboards.

The Die Cut Images

  • Cut the palm trees using Kraft and green cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink to the coconuts and trunk.
  • Attach the fronds and coconuts to the trunk using glossy accents.
  • Cut the sand layers using Kraft cardstock and apply Antique Linen ink directly to the paper using the ink pad.
  • Cut small grass sprigs using green cardstock.
  • Use bright yellow cardstock to cut the sun, attach the pieces together using double stick tape and apply shimmer.
  • Cut the truck designer paper and bright pink cardstock and assemble pieces using glossy accents and mounting tape.
  • Cut the umbrella using designer paper and bright pink cardstock and attach pieces together using glossy accents
  • Use bright colored cardstock to cut the surfboards, add details using contrasting colors and attach with glossy accents.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the birds and color the wings using a gray marker.

Assemble the Beach Truck and Surfboards Scene

  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the sand layers and attach to the card base.
  • Tuck the palm trees in behind the sand layers and attach using strips of mounting tape.
  • Use mounting tape to attach the sun in the sky area.
  • Apply mounting tape to the umbrella and attach to the card base. Tuck the pole in behind the sand layer and attach using glossy accents.
  • Tuck grass sprigs in behind the sand layers and attach using glossy accents.
  • Attach the surfboards to the back of the truck using glossy accents and one surfboard to the sand using mounting tape.
  • Use mounting tape to the attach the truck to the sand layers,
  • Finish by attaching the birds in the sky using mall pieces of mounting tape.

 

Come see how I made this sparkly beach truck and surfboards.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my truck and surfboards card.  I know this is my third beach card in a row and I promise I will upload something totally differernt next time.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Woody and Surfboard Beach Card

Making this Woody and surfboard beach card with the new dies by Rubbernecker was so much fun.  I used the new Woody, Palm Trees and surfboards from the Lifeguard Tower set paired with the Waves, Deckle Hills, Sun Moon, Grass #2 and Small Birds. Those high waves look perfect for surfing.

Come see how I made this woody and surfboard beach card.

The Card Base, Waves and Sand

  • Sponge on a light layer of clouds on the card base using an ink blending tool, cloud template and Tumbled Glass ink.
  • Cut three sections of waves and two sand layers.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the waves by dabbing it on with your finger or flat stylus.
  • Sprinkle clear glitter on the embossing paste while it is still wet.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand layers using the ink pad direct to paper.
  • Attach the three wave layers to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape along the back of each wave to pop it up slightly from the card base.
  • Attach the back sand layer to the card base using double stick tape and the front sand layer using strips of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this sunny woody and surfboard beach card.

The Woody

  • Use blue, gray, white, black and woodgrain cardstock to cut the woody.
  • Attach the woodgrain sections back in the frame using double stick tape.
  • Line up the woodgrain frame and attach it to the car base using glossy accents.
  • Lightly apply Antique Linen ink to the woodgrain panel using a mini applicator.
  • Assemble the wheels, attaching the pieces together using glossy accents and attach them to the car base using glossy accents.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the fenders and attach them to the car base.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the bumpers and trim pieces.  Hint:  I use my reverse tweezers from my Garden Tool Kit when working with small pieces.
  • Cut the surfboard using bright yellow cardstock, color both ends with an orange marker and attach to the top of the car.
  • Attach the Woody to the sand layer using pieces of mounting tape.

The Palm Trees and Sun

  • Use green and Kraft cardstock to cut the palm tree sections.
  • Apply Vintage Photo ink to the coconuts and tree trunks.
  • Attach the palm fronds and coconuts to the trunk using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the trees in behind the sand layers and attach to the card base using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Cut the sun using bright yellow cardstock , apply sparkle using a shimmer pen and attach to the card base using mounting tape.

Finish the Woody and Surfboard Beach Card

  • Use green cardstock to cut the grass sprigs and tuck them in behind the sand layers and attach using glossy accents.
  • Use bright yellow and orange cardstock to cut two surfboards. Color the top of the yellow board using an orange marker.
  • Tuck the surfboards in behind the sand layers and attach using mounting tape.
  • Cut the birds using white cardstock, color the wings using a gray marker and attach them to the card base for the finishing touch using tiny pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this fun woody and surfboard beach card.

There will be more Woody and surfboard beach cards in the future as I love making them.  It’s been in the mid to high 90s here in Florida the last couple of weeks and perfect weather for the beach.  I hope you have been inspired to get out your beach dies and make a summer scene card of your own.  Here is a link to Woody beach cards on Pinterest if you would like more inspiration.  Thanks for coming by.

Beach Pop Up Card

Summer is here and I had so much fun making this beach pop up card with all of these iconic beach images.  I used the new Rubbernecker Lifeguard Tower, Beach Umbrellas, Woody Die and Palm Trees paired with the Beach Chairs, Waves, Deckle Hills, Sun Moon, Knob Top Fence (turned upside down), Grass #2 and Small Birds.  I used The Paper Cut Square Pop Up Box Card kit for the base of my card.

Come see how I made this bright beach pop up card.

The Box Base and Layers

  • Use the bone folder to reinforce all the score lines .
  • Cut the designer paper layering pieces.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of all the layering pieces and attach to the inside back cover and flaps and the outside sections of the box sections.
  • Apply double stick tape to the side insert flap, line the box sides up and attach the two ends together to form the box.
  • Cut wave and sand insert sections using blue and Kraft cardstock.  Cut, score both ends at 1/2″ in.
  • Fold the wave and sand insert tabs, apply double stick tape to each tab and insert the tabs to the inside of the box.
  • Attach sand layers to the box flaps using double stick tape.
  • Note:  The kit comes with three inserts for each box.  I used five strips instead of three to create a fuller looking water and sand area in the box opening.

Come see how I made this colorful beach pop up card.

Assemble the Die Cut Images

  • Assemble the lifeguard tower pieces using mounting tape and glossy accents and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
  • Assemble the Woody pieces using glossy accents and mounting tape and attach to the sand section using glossy accents.
  • Use glossy accents to assemble the palm trees and attach them to the card base using glossy accents and mounting tape.
  • Attach the sun to the card base using glossy accents.
  • Cut the chairs and tuck them in between the sand layers and attach using mounting tape.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the white umbrella layers to the red and attach to the front flap using mounting tape.
  • Cut one fence section into four pieces, tuck them in behind the sand sections and attach using glossy accents. Note: I turned the fence upside down and trimmed the bottom layer using my deckle scissors to make it appear more rustic like an old fence.

The Finishing Touches

  • Attach a yellow surf board to the left flap area  and a red and white hand cut ball to the right flap using mounting tape.
  • Attach sprigs of grass in between the sand sections using glossy accents.
  • Create a towel by cutting thin strips of red cardstock and attach them to white cardstock using glossy accents.   Fringe the ends using snips and attach it to the chair using glue dots.
  • Finish by attaching flying birds to the sky area of the flaps using mounting tape.

Come see how I made this fun beach pop up card.

This beach pop up box card was so much fun to make.  Sadly,  the pictures didn’t show off the waves in the correct color and don’t really do the card justice.  That just seems to be how it goes with me and photography.  I should probably go and take lessons.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Tri Fold Lighthouse Card and Rubbernecker Memorial Day Sale

Rubbernecker Memorial Day Sale

Today I’m sharing a colorful tri fold lighthouse card.  This is the first time I’ve made a tri fold card and I thought the lighthouse, boats and ocean waves were the perfect images to create a continuous scene all the way across the three folds.  I used the Rubbernecker Lighthouse, Waves, Deckle Hills, Boats #1, Sun Moon, Small Birds, Grass #2 and Palm Trees.  The palm trees are in a new release that will be coming soon.

Come over to my blog and see how I made this tri fold lighthouse card.

The Cloud, Waves and Sand

  • Cut an 8 1/2″ by 11″ piece of cardstock in half lengthwise to create the card base.
  • Apply clouds to the card base using a cloud stencil, ink blending tool and Tumbled Glass ink.
  • Cut a wave piece to fit across the whole card base using aqua cardstock. Place an 11″ piece of cardstock on cutting platform, place the die at one end of the cardstock and cut.
  • Place the wave die at the end of the first cut, lining up the ends and cut a second time.
  • Attach the wave section to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Place the card base on the Scor-Pal and score at 3 5/8″ and 7 3/8″. 
  • Hint:  My Scor-Pal has the the tri fold measurements indicated on the top with two diamonds.  I don’t know if those markings are on the new Scor-Pal Eighths.
  • Cut three sand sections using the Deckle Hills, apply Antique Linen ink directly to the paper using the ink pad and heat dry.
  • Attach the sand sections to the card base using double stick tape.

Come over to my blog and see how I made this sunny tri fold lighthouse card.

The Lighthouse and Boats

  • Cut the lighthouse sections using white and red cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces and attach together using glossy accents.
  • Save the left over pieces to create a lighthouse for a future project.
  • Cut the boats out using red and blue cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces and attach together using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the lighthouse in behind the sand and attach to the card base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Tuck the boats in behind the wave sections and attach with pieces of mounting tape.

Finish the Tri Fold Lighthouse Card.

  • Cut the sun using yellow cardstock and attach the pieces together using double stick tape.
  • Apply sparkle to the sun using a sparkle pen.
  • Cut the palm tree sections using brown and green cardstock.
  • Assemble pieces and attach together using glossy accents.
  • Cut the small birds using white cardstock and apply markings using a gray marker.
  • Cut a few grass sprigs using green cardstock.
  • Tuck the palm trees in behind the sand and attach using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Apply a piece of mounting tape to the back of the sun and attach in the sky area of the card base.
  • Cut tiny pieces of mounting tape, apply to the back of the birds and attach them to the sky area of the card base.
  • Tuck a few grass sprigs around the base of the palm trees and attach using glossy accents.

Come over to my blog and see how I made this colorful tri fold lighthouse card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my tri fold lighthouse card.  I will definitely be making more of this fun layout.  It creates lots of space to create a full scene.  Today is the last day of the Rubbernecker Memorial Day sale. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful holiday.
