Die Cut Scooter Z Fold Beach Card and Rubbernecker Sale

 

March Sale Rubbernecker (002)

Making this beach themed Z Fold card with the die cut scooter front and center was so much fun.  I always enjoy deciding where to put all the parts and pieces to create an interesting scene.  With the scooter out in the front I wanted the lifeguard tower to look back in the distance since it is so much smaller than the scooter.  Adding the palm trees on both sides of the card anchored the scene and draws the eye in to everything else going on in the scene. 

For this project I used the Rubbernecker Scooter, Lifeguard Tower, Palm Trees, Deckle Hills, Waves, Sun Moon, Grass #2 and Small Birds. 

Making this die cut scooter z fold card was lots of fun to put together. Come over and check out how I made this fun beach card.

The Card Base and Waves

  • Apply clouds to the white Z fold card base using a cloud stencil, large blender brush and Tumbled Glass ink.
  • Cut wave sections to fit across the back section of the card base and in the box sections using aqua cardstock.
  • Layer two 5.50″ sections to the back of the card base using double stick tape.
  • Cut four waves layers 1.50″ x 3.75″, score at .50″ on each end.
  • Apply double stick tape on both ends of the wave and sand layers and set aside.

The Sand Layers and Wave Box

  • Cut two 11″ sand layers to fit across the whole card base. Place an 11″ piece of cardstock on cutting platform, place the deckle die at one end of the cardstock and cut.  Place the deckle die at the end of the first cut, line up the ends and cut a second time.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand layers by swiping the ink pad directly over the cardstock and quick dry with the heat gun.
  • Attach the two sand layers together using double stick tape.
  • Score the sand layers at 5.50″ and 8.25″ using a bone folder to create a sharp crease on both folds.
  • Apply double stick tape to the sand layers and attach to the card base.
  • Apply 1/2″ double stick tape to the wave tabs, tuck each  layer inside the box and attach the tabs.

The Lifeguard Tower

  • Cut the Lifeguard Tower using Kraft cardstock and the lifesaver ring  using red and white cardstock. and lifesaver board using yellow cardstock.
  • Apply Vintage Photo ink to the roof and railing sections using a mini applicator.
  • Attach the roof and railing to the tower using strips of mounting tape.
  • Attach the red pieces to the lifesaver ring and board using glossy accents.
  • Punch a 1/16″ hole in the tip of the lifesaver board and insert a single layer of string for the rope.
  • Attach the lifesaving ring and board to the tower using glossy accents and mounting tape.

Making this die cut scooter z fold card was easy and lots of fun to put together. Come over and check out how I made this fun beach card.

The Palm Trees, Surfboards and Sun

  • Cut the palm fronds using green cardstock and the trunks using woodgrain cardstock.
  • Apply Vintage Photo ink to the trunks and coconuts using a mini applicator.
  • Attach the green fronds and coconuts to the trunks using glossy accents.
  • Cut the Sun, attach the sections together and apply yellow tickles to create sparkle.

Handmade Scene Embellishments

  • Cut grass sprigs using green cardstock.
  • Create a handmade towel using thin cut strips of red and white cardstock attached to a white towel base.
  • Attach the red and white strips to the towel base using glossy accents.
  • Use snips to cut the end of the towel to create fringe.
  • Create the beach floats using a 3/4″ circle punch and a 1/4″ circle punch.  Cut the 1/4″ circle in a piece of white cardstock and then line it up inside the 3/4″ punch and punch out the larger circle.  I created two white floats and two red.
  • Hand cut the red sections of each float using snips and attach them to the white floats using glossy accents. Note:  I think you may see a great die set of beach toys by Rubbernecker coming out in the future. 

The Scooter and Birds

  • Cut the scooter parts using red, black and gray cardstock.
  • Attach the main pieces together pieces of mounting tape.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the decorative embellishments and wheels to the scooter.
  • Apply a large piece of mounting tape to the back of the scooter and attach to the front card base.
  • Cut the birds using white cardstock and apply Pumice Stone ink on the wings using a mini applicator.
  • Finish the card by attaching the sun and birds with pieces of mounting tape.

Making this die cut scooter z fold card was easy and lots of fun to put together. Come over and check out how I made this dimensional beach card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut scooter Z Fold card. It may still be chilly where you live but the temps here in Florida have been in the upper 80s and tiptoeing into the low 90s.  I thought the beach card was the perfect backdrop for the new die cut scooter.  Keep an eye out for another scooter beach card coming soon only it will be on a shutter card layout.  Check out this Pinterest to see more scooter card inspiration.  And, you can see 17 cards in my Z Fold category.  I sure appreciate you coming by today and I hope you have a great week.

Making this die cut scooter Z Fold card was so much fun.

 

Create an Ocean Scene Background using Masking Technique

I love to create an ocean scene background to highlight interesting focal images like the bicycle and sea grass.  The masking technique is fast and easy and yet creates depth in the background that draws the eye back into the scene.  For this project I used the Rubbernecker Bicycle, Sea Grass, Deckle Hills, Small Birds and Rectangle Combo OPC #4.

Creating an ocean scene background for an interesting main focal image is fun, fast and easy. Click thru to see how I created my background using a blender brush, ink and the masking technique.

The Ocean Scene Background

  • Use white cardstock to cut a scene layer 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ to fit behind the frame.
  • Attach a piece of masking tape straight across the center of the cardstock.
  • Apply a dark shade of Tumbled Glass ink to the lower portion of the masked section using a large blender brush. :Note:  I am in love with my Life Changing Blender Brush set.  They make applying color to a large area like my scene a breeze.
  • Remove the masking tape.
  • Create the lightly shaded cloudy sky background to the upper portion of the scene using a cloud stencil and blender brush.
  • Start applying the cloud layers at the top of the page and moving the stencil down to create the layers.
  • Apply light touches of white embossing paste to the water using your finger and then sprinkle with clear glitter to add a touch of sparkle.  Allow the paste to dry.

The Frame and Sand Layers

  • Use white cardstock to cut the frame layers.
  • Turn the frame sections face down and attach them together using double stick tape.
  • Cut two sand layers using Kraft cardstock.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and then attach one sand layer to the back of the mounting tape.
  • Adhere double stick tape to the back of the sand layer and then attach the ocean scene background layer to the back of the frame.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the frame/scene layer and attach it to the card base. Note:  I could have just masked off the card base to create the ocean background but I’d rather use a separate piece of cardstock in case I mess it up. I also like the additional layer to create more stability for my card.

An ocean scene background is the perfect backdrop to highlight and interesting focal image. Come see how I made my background using a blender brush, inks and the masking technique.

The Bicycle and Towels

  • Cut the bicycle parts using aqua, gray and black cardstock.
  • Assemble the bicycle pieces and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Cut a strip of bright yellow cardstock about an inch wide and two inches long.
  • Use bright yellow, aqua and bright pink cardstock to cut thin 1/8″ strips of cardstock.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the colorful strips and attach them to the yellow layer.
  • Use snips to cut fringe along both ends of the towel.
  • Score the towel and fold in half and cut off a large section of the back of the towel to use in the basket.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back side of the towel, drape over the bike rack and attach.
  • Trim the other towel section to fit in the basket and attach using glossy accents.

Complete the Scene

  • Use green cardstock to cut two Sea Grass sections.
  • Attach the Sea Grass sections to the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the front sand layer and attach it to the frame.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the bicycle and attach it to the sand layer and scene base.
  • Finish the scene by cutting three birds, color them with Pumice Stone ink and attach them to the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.

An ocean scene background is the perfect backdrop to highlight and interesting focal image. Click thru to see how I made my background using a blender brush, inks and the masking technique.

Creating an ocean scene background is so fast and easy and makes such a beautiful backdrop to highlight an interesting focal image.  I love making beach cards and have tons of cards in that category.  You can also find lots more inspiration on this Pinterest link.  Thank you so much for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Beach Scene with Vintage Woody

My project today is a beach scene with vintage woody card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 4 of the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week long challenge event. This event is a special thank you to all of the fan club members who support the site all year long. Have you had a desire to be on the Dirty Dozen design team?

Come see how I made this beach scene with vintage woody card.

The Beach Scene

  • Cut the scene base using the Nested Deckle Rectangle and white cardstock.
  • Apply an Eclipse tape all the way around the outer border of the base to create a mask.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand area and Tumbled Glass ink to the water area using a stylus and foam tip.
  • Create the cloud sky area using a cloud stencil and ink blending tool.
  • Sketch in the sea oats using a green marker and then add touches of Vintage Photo ink on the sand at the base of the oats.
  • Use your finger to apply touches of white embossing paste to the water area and the edge of the sand by dabbing gently.
  • Apply clear glitter to the embossing paste while it is still wet.
  • Attach the beach scene layer to the blue layer using mounting tape and attach both to the card base using double stick tape.

 

Come see how I made this sparkling beach scene with vintage woody card.

The Woody

  • Cut the Woody parts using woodgrain, green, black, white, orange and gray cardstock.
  • Apply Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink to the green card sections using mini applicators to create the appearance of rust and age.
  • Attach the woodgrain section to the car using glossy accents.
  • Apply mounting tape to the fenders and attach them to the car base.
  • Assemble the tire and wheel sections, attach them together using glossy accents and then attach to the car using glossy accents.
  • Attach the orange surfboard to the top of the car using glossy accents.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the Woody and attach it to the scene base.
  • Finish by cutting three flying birds, apply Pumice Stone ink to the wings using a mini applicator and attach them to the sky area using pieces of mounting tape.

 

Come see how I made this summer beach scene with vintage woody card.

This beach scene with vintage Woody is not quite as detailed with dimensional parts and pieces as I usually make but I liked the simplicity of it.  The sparkly ocean in the background is pretty and the birds in the sky draw the eye up but the Woody is still the main focal point.  It’s fun to add age and rust to the car image so it doesn’t look so perfect.  Have you tried making sea foam on your beach scenes with white embossing paste and glitter.  It’s really very easy and yet the outcome is so pretty.   Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
