Dance In The Rain

Today I’m sharing a clean and simple sentiment card using the Dance in the Rain sentiment. I used Rubbernecker Stamps Sentiment, Rectangle Combo #4 frame, Deckle Hills, Sea Grass and Small Birds.

Come see how I made this fpretty dance in the rain sentiment card enhanced with sea grass.

The Dance in the Rain Sentiment

  • Stamp the sentiment on  the white card base using Versa Mark.
  • Apply super fine gold embossing powder and heat with the heat gun.

Finish the Card

  • Cut the frame using white cardstock.
  • Attach the two frame sections together on the back using double stick tape.
  • Cut the deckle hill using white cardstock and attach it to the lower section of the frame.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame sections and attach it to the card base.
  • Cut the bird using gold metallic cardstock, apply a small piece of mounting tape to the back of the bird and attach it to the card base.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this white on white dance in the rain sentiment card,  I only showed on picture as it was so hard to photograph and almost impossible to get the gold bird to show up gold.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Impression Obsession Things With Wings Challenge

Welcome to the Impression Obsession Things With Wings challenge.  I chose to create a tree full of fall colored leaves and birds.  I disassembled the new Spotted Deer Frame and used the two tree sections to create the base for my tree.   I paired the tree with leaves from the Oak Leaves and Rake, Picket Fence, Grass Border, Small Grass Border and Small Birds.

Come see my Impression Obsession things with wings challenge card.

The Tree Base

  • Cut the Spotted Deer Frame using Kraft cardstock.
  • Cut the two tree sections away from the frame.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink directly on the tree sections using the ink pad and then follow by applying Vintage Photo ink.  Hint:  The light color ink dampens the cardstock and makes applying darker ink go on more smoothly. 
  • Figure out how you want the two tree sections to fit together to make a full looking tree and then attach them together by applying glossy accents.

Coloring The Leaves and Birds

  • Cut several sections of the small oak leaves.
  • Use mini applicators to apply touches of Fired Brick, Shabby Shutters and Spiced Marmalade ink to create the colorful fall leaves. I ended up adding touches of Peeled Paint  over the Shabby Shutters spots to enhance the green.
  • Use mini applicators to Chipped Sapphire and Spiced Marmalade to the birds.

Attaching The Leaves and Birds

  • Attach the leaves to the branches using glossy accents and continue to fill in the tree.
  • Trim off the two birds formed into the tree branches using scissors.
  • Attach the colored birds over top of the trimmed bird areas using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • aa birds

Build The Scene

  • Cut a piece of blue cardstock and white cardstock to create scene layers.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the blue layer and attach to the white.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the blue and white layer and attach to the card base.
  • Attach the tree to the card base using thin strips of mounting tape.  Use rolled glue dots to attach a few upper branches to the card base.
  • Attach the two grass borders together using double stick tape.
  • Attach the grass borders to the picket fence using double stick tape.
  • Attach the fence and grass section to the card base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Attach additional birds in the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Attach a few leaves falling from the tree and in the grass using glossy accents.
  • Apply Spectrum Noir clear Sparkle pen to the leaves and birds to add a touch of sparkle.

Come see my lovely Impression Obsession things with wings challenge card.

I hope you’ll come along and play in the challenge with us.  You can find all the details about prizes on the Impression Obsession blog.

Die Cut Birds and Flower Branches

I have a soft and pretty die cut birds and flower branches card to share with you today using Rubbernecker 5128D Tree Panel #2 , 5147-10D Tiny Flower Buds, 5142-05D Birds and 5141D Nested Rectangle Scallop w/Holes.  I love how soft and pretty the flowers are on the branches.  I wanted my birds to match the purple flowers but was not sure if there are any species of purple birds.  I did a Google search for purple bird photos and came up with lots of examples.  So I decided to create a soft purple and cream bird that would blend into the branches. 

Coloring and cutting the branches

  • Cut the Tree Panel and trim the leaves off the frame border.
  • Color the branches using a walnut Copic marker.
  • Color the leaves using an olive Copic marker.

The frame

  • Cut the large and smaller scalloped layer.
  • Use a nested rectangle die to cut the frame opening out of the smaller scalloped layer.  Secure the nested rectangle in place on the scalloped layr and run through the die cutting machine.
  • Tip:  I use waxed paper or printer paper between my die and cardstock when cutting white or light colored paper.  This eliminates dirty marks from the dies being left on the cardstock.

Come see how I made my pretty die cut birds and flower branches card.

Forming and attaching the flowers

  • Cut the tiny flower buds and place them on the molding pad.
  • Push down on the center of the flowers using a tiny tipped stylus.
  • Apply glossy accents to the  back of the flowers and attach them to the branches.  I used a triple pattern in most places to fill in the branch but also added a few single flower in spots.

Attaching the frame and branch

  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the large scalloped layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back top right corner of the frame and attach the branch.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the frame and attach the frame and branch to the card base.

Coloring and attaching the birds

  • Color the top portion of the bird using Dusty Concord ink and a mini applicator.
  • Color the bottom portion of the bird using Antique Linen and a mini applicator.
  • Place the birds face down on the molding pad and gently push down using a large round stylus to round the bird body.
  • Attach small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach them to the branches.

 

Come see how I made my lovely die cut birds and flower branches card.

I think the flowers and birds look so pretty against the all white background.  I hope you are inspired to create your own project using die cut birds and flower branches.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great week.
