Die Cut Lighthouse Step Card

Good Monday morning.  Today I’m sharing a die cut lighthouse step card.  I’ve said many times that I am really challenged when it comes to making cards with different folds and shapes. Well the good news for me is The Paper Cut sells card kits with all different styles and folds. My card was made using the Outer Stair Step Card kit.  My kit is all white cardstock but it is offered in lots of different colors and comes with envelopes.  So if you are like me and want to try your hand playing with different card folds and shapes then you will enjoy shopping this site.  Next, I’m going to try my hand making a Pop -Up Box Card

My project was made using Rubbernecker Stamps Light House, Boats #1, Waves, Deckle Hills, Grass #2 and Small Birds.

Come see how I made this die cut lighthouse step card.

The Step Card Base

  • Apply Tumbled Glass ink to large card base section and tallest step layer using an ink blending tool and cloud stencil.
  • Cut the sand layers using Kraft cardstock and apply Antique Linen ink directly to the layers with the ink pad.
  • Cut the wave layers using aqua cardstock.  One layer to fit all the way across the whole card base and four to fit the step layers.  
  • Apply white embossing paste to the wave layers by dabbing it on with your finger and sprinkle on clear glitter and allow to dry.
  • Attach the long wave layer to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Attach the back sand layer to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Attach the front sand layer to the card base using strips of mounting tape.

The Light House and Boats

  • Cut the light house out using red cardstock and again in white cardstock. 
  • Attach the sections together using glossy accents and double stick tape.
  • Tuck the light house in behind the sand layer and attach with mounting tape.
  • Cut the boats using red, white and blue cardstock.
  • Attach the pieces together with glossy accents.
  • Tuck the boats in between the wave layers and attach with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this pretty die cut lighthouse step card.

The Seagrass and Flying Birds

  • Cut the grass sprigs using green cardstock and tuck them in behind the sand layers and attach them using glossy accents.
  • Cut the birds using white cardstock and apply Pumice Stone ink to the wings using a mini applicator.
  • Attach one bird to the sky area by the light house using a small piece of mounting tape.
  • Cut two strips of clear acetate sheet and attach the birds using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the strips in behind the sand layer and wave layer using glossy accents.
  • I took a close up photo (above) because the flying birds were hard to see in the main photos.

Come see how I made this sunny die cut lighthouse step card.

I had so much fun making the die cut lighthouse step card.  I think I have to make another one soon.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have been inspired to make a step card of your own.

Die Cut Seagrass Scene

Good Monday morning.  Today I’m sharing two similar die cut seagrass scene cards made using the new Rubbernecker Stamps Seagrass die paired with the new Rectangle Combo #3, Rectangle Combo #4, Deckle Hills and Small Birds. The sentiment is from the Best Friends clear stamp set. I love this seagrass die and have already asked Rubbernecker if they would create a smaller version.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Come check out how I made this pretty die cut seagrass scene.

The Scenic Background

  • Apply Eclipse masking tape to mask off the sky area of the background layer.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass ink to the lower portion of the background layer using an ink blending tool to create the ocean.
  • Remove mask and apply the clouds to the sky area using an ink blending tool and cloud template.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the ocean portion of the scene by dabbing it on with your finger.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Nocturne Versafine Clair.
  • Apply clear glitter to the paste and then set the scene aside to dry.

The Frame, Seagrass, Sand and Birds

  • Cut the frames using white cardstock.
  • Cut the deck hill sections using Kraft cardstock.
  • Cut the sea grass sections using green cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand layers using a mini applicator. 
  • Attach the sand layers to the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach to the card base.
  • Tuck the seagrass in behind the sand layers and attach with glossy accents.
  • Cut the birds using white cardstock, apply soft touches of Pumice Stone ink using a mini applicator and attach in the sky area using small piece of mounting tape.

Come check out how I made this die cut seagrass scene.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut seagrass scene cards.  They were really fast and easy to make and I think they will brighten the day of the recipient.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great week.

Lighthouse Beach Scene

Good Monday morning.  I have a sunny and fun lighthouse beach scene card to share with you today.  But before I get started let me explain why I have not posted for the last several days.  I have traveled two weekends in a row to work with Rubbernecker Stamps at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo shows in Irving, TX and Pleasanton, CA.  I can’t tell you how much fun it was for me to meet so many wonderful people who have a love for paper crafting.  I was especially thrilled to see two of my longtime Splitcoaststampers friends, Bev Gerard (texasgrammy), who I haven’t seen in at least 9 years and meeting Harriet Skelly (hskelly) for the first time.  See pictures below.  It is such a fun experience to see people that I have had a long term online relationship with and then meet them face to face.  I’m looking forward to traveling with Rubbernecker to several more shows this year and will keep you posted on those dates and cities.

Come see how I made this fun lighthouse beach scene card.

For this project I used the 5202-05D Lighthouse, 5147-07D Sun Moon, 5202-06D Boats #1, 5162-05 Twigs, 5202-09D Waves, 5173-02D Deckle Hills and 5208D Rectangle Combo #4.

The Frame and Sand Layers

  • Cut the frame using white cardstock and the sand layers using light brown cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen to the sand layers to add depth of color. 
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of both sand layers and attach them to the front of the frame. 

The Sky and Waves Background

  • Apply clouds to the background layer using an ink blending tool, Tumbled Glass ink and a cloud template.
  • Attach the wave layers to the sky background layer using double stick tape. 
  • Apply tiny pieces of mounting tape to the last layer to pop it up slightly to add dimension.
  • Attach the sky and waves layer to the card base using double stick tape.

Come see how I made this sunny lighthouse beach scene card.

Assemble the Lighthouse, Sun and Boat

  • Cut the parts and pieces of the lighthouse using red, black, white and yellow cardstock.
  • Attach the parts together using double stick tape and glossy accents.
  • Apply a clear shimmer overlay to the window of the lighthouse to add sparkle.
  • Cut the sun using yellow cardstock and attach pieces together using double stick tape.
  • Apply a clear shimmer overlay to the sun to add sparkle.
  • Cut the boat using red and white cardstock and assemble the pieces using glossy accents.

Complete Assembly of the Lighthouse Beach Scene

  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the scene card base.
  • Tuck the lighthouse in behind the sand layers and attach in place with pieces of mounting tape.
  • Tuck the boat in behind the waves and attach using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Attach the sun in the sky area using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Cut several pieces of twigs using green cardstock.
  • Tuck the pieces of twigs in behind the sand layers and attach using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this lighthouse beach scene card.

I hope you have been inspired by my lighthouse beach scene to get out your summer dies and create a fun scene of your own.  I can imagine that the beach would feel pretty good to those of you who live in areas with cold weather.  I transferred flights in Denver yesterday and the ground was covered with snow and the temps were unbearable for me.  Lucky I got to be inside.  Thanks for coming by and a special thanks to those who have written wondering if I was OK since I hadn’t posted in several days.  I sure do appreciate being missed.

Die Cut Lighthouse Scene and Rubbernecker Sale

Good Thursday morning.  I am sharing a sunny die cut lighthouse scene today made using several new dies released by Rubbernecker Stamps. I have so much fun making beach cards.  For this I used the new 5202-05D Lighthouse, 5202-09D Waves, 5207D Rectangle Combo OPC #3 paired with the 5147-07D Sun Moon, 5173-02D Deckle Hills, 5162-05D Twigs and 5147-06D Small Birds. Be sure to hop over to Rubbernecker Stamps to check out the 20% off Store Wide Sale and the new February die release

Come see how I made this die cut lighthouse scene

The Frame, Water and Sand

  • Cut the frame using white cardstock.
  • Cut one layer of sand using tan cardstock.
  • Cut two wave layers using aqua cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand section using an ink blending tool.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower back portion of the frame and attach the sand layer.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the sand layer and attach the two wave sections.
  • Create a blue sky background on the card base using Tumbled Glass ink.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

Assemble the Lighthouse

  • Cut the parts and pieces of the lighthouse using red and white cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces together using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the lighthouse in behind the sand layer and attach in place with pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this sunny die cut lighthouse scene

Finish the Die Cut Lighthouse Scene

  • Cut the sun using yellow cardstock, attach the outer ray section and the circle inner section together using double stick tape.
  • Attach the sun to the card base using mounting tape.
  • Cut the small birds using white cardstock and apply Pumice Stone ink to the bodies using a mini applicator.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach them to the card base.
  • Cut a few twigs using green cardstock.
  • Cut the top portions of the twigs off, bend them to form the appearance of sea grass and tuck them in behind the sand layer and attach with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this framed die cut lighthouse scene.

My favorite part of this die cut lighthouse scene is how the red and white pops against the blue sky, waves and white frame. The small birds aren’t exactly shaped like seagulls but I think they add motion and interest to the scene.  I hope you have been inspired to get out your dies to create a beach scene of your own.  It may help take the edge off of the terribly cold weather so many of you are experiencing. Have you checked out the Rubbernecker new February die release?  All the new dies are included in the store wide 20% off sale.  Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Taylored Expressions 10th Birthday

Come celebrate Taylored Expressions 10th anniversary.

Good Wednesday morning.  Today I’m joining forces with 40 paper crafting designers to celebrate the 10th year birth of Taylored Expressions business.   You can find all the information about this fun celebration and the full list of designers on the Taylored Expressions blog post.  Taylor’s September release is full of fun birthday stamp and die sets and you can find the complete release listed here.

Come check out how I made this fun die cut tropical scene birthday card with flamingos.

I had lots of fun creating this tropical scene using the Build a Scene Tropical Die Set and Tropical Trio Stamp and Die Set.  I loved using all the different foliage and palm tree dies to create the base of the scene.  The flamingos were fun to feature in the scene along with the “Happy Bird-Day” sentiment place on the sun.

I have enjoyed using Taylor’s products for years.  When I began writing my post I decided to go and check out my Taylored Expressions category and found 54 projects using her products over the years.  There are way too many TE projects for me to share on my blog today so I decided to share two that I made when I was a guest designer on Taylor’s blog. 

KC Taylored Expressions Shade Tree Cutting Plate 2 center

I loved creating this fun shade tree window scene for one of my guest designer posts.  I created a see thru window and modified the Shade Tree cutting plate by removing the frame and trimming the leaves.  I knew the window scene would not be complete without a few flower pots and a garden of flowers around the base of the tree and window.

KC Taylored right

I had a wonderful time making this fall project for another of my guest designer appearances on Taylor’s blog. I’m sure you’ll agree with me that Taylor creates the most wonderful cutting plates.  I have so many of them in my stash and I can’t even imagine trying to pick a favorite.  This project was made using several different die sets and I love the outcome.

Share Joy Campaign

At the heart of Taylored Expressions is a mission to share joy through the gift of handmade cards. As part of their 10th birthday TE is continuing that mission with the launch of a special Share Joy campaign focused on providing birthday cards to those in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities across the U.S. To make as deep an impact as possible TE is inviting card makers everywhere to join the campaign. Will you join us? Find out how to participate by viewing their Share Joy page here: https://tayloredexpressions.com/share-joy.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Taylored Expressions project and I know you will love hopping over to the TE blog to see the complete list of designers taking place in this wonderful family reunion to celebrate Taylor and her business

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this sunny die cut woody and surf boards card.

The Sand, Water and Sky Background

The sand was created using Antique Linen ink, a stylus tool and foam tip.  Next, I used Tumbled Glass ink to create a darker shade for the  water and attempted to make it look like high rolling waves for surfing, and then applied a lighter shade of blue using the same ink and a cloud template.  I heat dried the ink and then applied white embossing paste to the water area to create the appearance of sea foam and then sprinkled it with clear glitter to add sparkle.

The Frame

The frame was cut using the Impression Obsession Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.  I turned the frames face down and attached the two pieces together using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it over the beach scene background.

The Woody and Plane

The Woody was cut using both red and woodgrain cardstock.  The different sections were turned face down and attached together using double stick tape.  I wanted the tires to look a little oversized so I used a circle punch to cut two black circles and then attached the red die cut wheels with glossy accents. I cut the surfboard twice in yellow and blue and attached to the top of the car with double stick tape.

The plane was cut using bright yellow cardstock and the banner was cut using white cardstock.  I cut two thin strips of red cardstock and attached them to the plane using glossy accents to add interest and break up the yellow.  I used a black marker to hand write the Surf’s Up sentiment on the banner.

Assembling the Die Cut  Woody and Surf Boards

I cut one section of the beach fence and applied Vintage Photo ink to color it.  I cut a few sections of the Small Grass using green cardstock.  I cut the beach fence in half and gently bent the sections to create an old appearance.  I tucked the fence sections in behind the frame and attached them in place with glossy accents.  Next, I tucked the grass sections behind and around the fence sections and attached with glossy accents. The Woody, plane and banner were attached to the frame using mounting tape to complete the scene.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut Woody and surf boards beach scene card.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
