Die Cut Deer and Pine Scene

Good Friday morning.  I have a pretty die cut deer and pine scene card to share with you today.  The Tree In Oval and Deckle Hills creates a perfect setting for the Deer Family.  The snow tipped Greenery, red Berries and Small Birds add contrast and interest to the all white scene.

Come see how I made this white on white die cut deer and pine scene.

The Tree Frame and Snow Layers

  • Cut the Tree in Oval and three Deckle Hills layers in white cardstock.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower back portion of the frame.
  • Trim the three snow layers to fit behind the frame and attach with double stick tape.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

The Deer

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Attach small pieces of greenery and red circles to the neck of the fawn using glossy accents.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the fawn and doe, tuck them in behind the snow layers and attach to the card base.

Come see how I made this pretty white on white die cut deer and pine scene.

The Greenery and Berries

  • Cut the greenery using green cardstock.
  • Apply white gesso to the tips of the greenery using a small brush and set aside to dry.
  • Tuck the greenery in behind the snow layers and around the deer and attach using glossy accents.
  • Cut the berry branches using green cardstock and the berries using red cardstock.
  • Use the jewel picker to pick up the red berries and attach them to the green berry branches using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the berry branches in behind the snow layers and attach with glossy accents.
  • Apply sparkle to the berries using a clear overlay pen.

The Birds

  • Cut the birds using red cardstock.
  • Apply black to the beaks using a black Copic marker.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach to the scene.

Come see how I made this lovely white on white die cut deer and pine scene.

I looking making white on white cards with pops of color.  The die cut deer and pine scene is a perfect example of how the all the all white main images pop with the bright greenery and red birds.  I hope you are inspired to create a white on white winter scene of your own.  Thank you  for coming by today.  I appreciate you checking in and your supportive comments so much.  Happy Friday and upcoming weekend.

Die Cut Pink Poinsettia

Good Thursday morning.  I have another die cut pink poinsettia card to share with you today.  I cant seem to help myself.  This is very similar to the pink poinsettia Christmas card I posted a few weeks ago but this time I used a simple decorative white frame on an all white background.  The poinsettia, holly and berries really pop against the white space.  I’m gonna have to make one like this with a red poinsettia and berries soon. Once again I have to say how much I love this Rubbernecker Poinsettia #2 die set as the shape of the petals are so natural looking and the outcome is such a natural looking flower.  I arranged Holly and Berries around the poinsettia and framed it using the Rectangle Combo #2

Come see how I made this die cut pink poinsettia embellished with holly and berry branches.

The Frame

  • Cut the rectangle frame using white cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

Assembling The Poinsettia

  • Cut the flower out once using pink cardstock and the largest flower section twice using pink cardstock.
  • Cut the tiny flowers out using yellow cardstock.
  • Use mini applicators to apply Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick ink to all the flower petals to add depth of color.
  • Place the flower sections face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the large round stylus.
  • Place the flower sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center using the small tipped stylus to push the petals up.
  • Begin assembling the flower by attaching the layers together using glossy accents.  Off set the layers so no petals are lined directly over each other. I used two green layers on the bottom to create a full base.
  • Form the tiny flower centers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach in the flower center using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this elegant die cut pink poinsettia embellished with holly and berry branches.

The Holly and Berry Branches

  • Cut the holly and berry branches using green cardstock.
  • Cut the berries for both the holly and branches using pink cardstock.
  • Apply glossy accents to the berry bases and use the jewel picker to pick up the berries and attach.
  • Apply Worn Lipstick ink to the berries to add a depth of color.

Create the Arrangement

  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attach it to the card base.
  • Tuck the holly sections under the flower petals and attach with glossy accents.
  • Tuck the berry branches under the flower petals and holly and attach with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this beautiful die cut pink poinsettia embellished with holly and berry branches.

I hope you have been inspired to get out your poinsettia, holly and berry branches dies to make a die cut pink poinsettia Christmas card of your own. I sure do appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Snowman Snowball Fight Scene

Good Wednesday morning.  I have a fun snowman snowball fight scene card to share with you today.  Well….you can only see one side of the fight as my snow man builds up his supply of snowballs to be ready for the oncoming attack.  LOL!  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Snowman die set and paired him with the Pine Tree Forest and Stitched Hills to match the stitching on the Square Combo Frame

Come see how I made this snowman snowball fight scene using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.

The Framed Scene

  • Turn the frame sections face down and attach them together using double stick tape.
  • Cit the snow layers using white cardstock and the trees using green cardstock.
  • Attach the snow layers to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and snow layers.
  • Attach the pine trees to the mounting tape on the back of the frame and snow layers.
  • Apply touches of double stick tape where the trees are attached  on the back of the frame and attach the framed scene to the card base.

Come see how I made this fun snowman snowball fight scene using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.

Assemble The Snowman

Complete The Scene

  • Tuck the wolves in behind the snow layers and attach with mounting tape.
  • Cut the Twigs using green cardstock and attach them in behind the snow layer and around the feet of the wolves using glossy accents.
  • Apply white Gesso to the tips of the twigs using a small tipped brush.

I don’t know about you but I am always on the lookout for new ideas for a masculine Christmas card and all masculine cards in general.  The Rubbernecker Wildlife set with the wolves, bear and elk is a perfect set to have on hand for all of my masculine card needs.  What guy wouldn’t rather receive a card with a wolf on it rather than one with a flower? LOL!  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you are having a great week.

Die Cut Window and Poinsettia

Good Sunday morning.  I have a die cut window and poinsettia project to share with you today using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  The Window and Nested Rectangle Scallop w/Holes creates interest and a dimensional base that adds interest to the Poinsettia, Holly and Greenery arrangement.  I love how the bright red and green pop against the all white background.

Come see how I made this die cut window and poinsettia card.

The Window and Rectangle Base

  • Cut the window and rectangle using white cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape on the back of the rectangle layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window and attach it to the rectangle base layer.

The Poinsettia

  • Cut the poinsettia sections out using red cardstock.
  • Cut a couple of the largest flower sections out using green cardstock.
  • Cut the tiny flower sections out using yellow cardstock.
  • Place the flower sections face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the large round stylus from the Garden Tool Kit and molding pad.
  • Place the flower sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each using the small tipped stylus to push all the petals up.
  • Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents, beginning with the large green sections  and offsetting each section to create a natural looking flower.
  • Form the tiny yellow flowers with the small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach them in the flower center using glossy accents.
  • Apply the sparkle to the tiny flowers using the clear overlay pen.

Come see how I made this festive die cut window and poinsettia card.

The Holly and Greenery

  • Cut the holly and greenery using green cardstock.
  • Cut the holly berry section using red cardstock.
  • Pick up the berries using a jewel picker and attach them to the holly berry base using glossy accents.
  • Apply the sparkle clear overlay to the berries.
  • Gently form the holly leaves using the large stylus and molding pad.

Die Cut Window and Poinsettia

  • Attach the poinsettia to the window using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the holly sections under the poinsettia and attach with glossy accents. Note I cut some of the holly sections apart to create the size of branches that I wanted for the arrangement.
  • Fill in the arrangement with the greenery and attach with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this bright and festive die cut window and poinsettia card.

I would love to have a dollar for every poinsettia project I have made over the years.  I remember making lots and lots of the die cut window and poinsettia cards the first year the window dies became available.  Do you already have poinsettia and window dies in your stash?  If not you will want to check out these sets.  I especially love how natural  looking this poinsettia is.  I sure do appreciate you coming by and I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Christmas Gate and Arbor Scene

Good Saturday morning.  I am sharing a festive Christmas gate and arbor scene today made using Rubbernecker’s Gate and Arbor paired with the Deckle Hills, Tiny Leaves and Small Birds.  I posted a spring Gate and Arbor Scene a few weeks ago made with pretty pink flowers and butterflies along with a couple of cats playing in the scene. I think I will have to work on creating a summer and fall scene with the set to cover all four seasons.

Come see how I made this Christmas gate and arbor scene.

The Scene Base

  • Cut the red and blue layers and attach them together using ATG adhesive.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the layers and attach to the card base.

The Gate and Arbor

  • Cut the arbor and two gate sections using white cardstock.
  • Cut the hinges and handle using black cardstock.
  • Apply glossy accents to the side tabs on the gate and attach to the arbor.
  • Attach the hinges and handle to the gate using glossy accents.
  • Cut the second gate section in half, trim to fit on both sides of the arbor and attach them using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this festive  Christmas gate and arbor scene.

The Holly Bough

  • Cut two sections of the larger leaves and two sections of the smaller leaves using green cardstock.
  • Form the leaves by placing them face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each using the leaf tool from the Garden Tool Kit.
  • Create the holly bough on the top of the arbor by attaching the leaves using glossy accents.
  • Start in the center of the arbor and attach the leaves evenly across the top going in both directions using a center, left, right pattern. 
  • Tie a red multi loop bow and attach in the center of the bough using glue dots. I buy this ribbon at Michaels for .99 cents a roll.
  • Punch out several 1/8″ circles using red cardstock, apply glossy accents and attach them in the holly bough.

The Wreath

  • Cut out a small circle about 3/4″ using green cardstock.
  • Cut out the center of the circle to create the wreath base.  The picture below is from my wreath tutorial but I thought it would be helpful for you to see it.https://kittiekraft.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/6a00e54ed958f38833015437680300970c.jpg
  • Apply a drop of glossy accents to one end of the cut circle and attach it to the other side to create the wreath base.
  • Attach the leaves to the wreath base in a center, left, right pattern and work your way all the way around.
  • When you get all the way around you will need to lift up the leaves and tuck in the last few to complete the wreath.
  • Punch out several 1/16″ circles using red cardstock (I know…..they are tiny but they are the perfect size) and attach them to the wreath using glossy accents. 
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the wreath and attach it to the gate.

Complete the Christmas Gate and Arbor Scene

  • Cut two Deckle Hill layers and trim to the size of the red and blue layer.
  • Attach one layer to the base using double stick tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the gate and arbor sections and attach to the base.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the second deckle layer and attach it to the front of the gate and arbor.
  • Attach leaves to the fence sections using glossy accents and tiny red bows using glue dots.
  • Attach several red birds using small pieces of mounting tape to finish the scene.

Come see how I made this Christmas gate and arbor scene.

This Christmas gate and arbor scene was so much fun to make.  I hope you have been inspired to get out some of your outdoor dies that would normally be used to spring and summer and create a winter/holiday themed card with them.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great Saturday.
