Handmade Felt Christmas Ornaments are the Perfect Crafty Gift

Rubbernecker Black Friday 2019

Handmade felt Christmas ornaments are the perfect crafty gift.  These cozy poinsettia and holly mugs would be so sweet to accompany a gift of hot cocoa mix and marshmallows or tea and cookies.

For this project I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Winter Cocoa Set, Mixable Flower Stack, Wreath Set and Greenery #1.

Come over to my blog to see how I made these warm and cozy handmade felt Christmas ornaments.

The Mugs

  • Cut the mugs using dark red and winter white felt.
  • Use dark red cardstock to cut two additional mugs to create a base for the felt.
  • Apply a generous amount of Crafter’s Pick tacky glue to the cardstock mugs and attach the felt mugs over them.
  • Attach the decorative white scalloped layers to the mugs using tacky glue.
  • Allow the glue to dry and then trim off the side edges of the bottom scalloped layers to fit the mug.

This colorful handmade felt Christmas ornament is the perfect crafty gift.

The Poinsettia, Pine and Holly Embellishments

  • Cut the two sets of flowers using red felt and cut the pine and holly using green felt.
  • Use a 1/8″ circle punch to punch out several red felt circles to use for holly and white felt circles for the flower centers.
  • Apply tacky glue to the poinsettia, holly and pine and attach them to the mug bases.
  • Attach the red felt circles to the holly and the white felt circles to the flower centers using tacky glue.

Come over to my blog to see how made these handmade felt Christmas ornaments with holly and poinsettias.

Finish by attaching green string ornament hangers to the back of the mugs using double stick tape. Cover the tape with a small piece of matching dark red cardstock.

Santa Christmas Card

Today I’m sharing a funny Santa Christmas card with poor Santa stuck in the chimney.  I used the newly released Santa Stuck set paired with the Deckle Frame and a wreath embellishment made using the Tiny Leaves set.  This Santa Stuck set reminds me of Tim Allen and the Santa Claus movies.  LOL! 

Come see how I made this stuck Santa Christmas card.

The Deckle Frame and Designer Paper Card Base

  • Cut the designer paper 5.50″ x 4.25″ and attach it to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the Deckle Frame.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

The Chimney

  • Cut two sections of chimney using black cardstock and white cardstock to cut the snowy layer.
  • Use red cardstock to cut a piece to layer behind the chimney sections.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the chimney sections and attach them to the red layer.
  • Use mounting tape to attach the white snowy layer to the chimney.
  • Adhere strips of mounting tape to the back of the chimney section and attach it to the card base.

Come see how I made this funny stuck Santa Christmas card.

The Santa

  • Use red, white, black and metallic gold cardstock to cut the Santa sections.
  • Assemble the pieces and attach together using using glossy accents.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the Santa, tuck him in behind the chimney and attach to the card base.

The Holly Wreath

  • Create a 3/4″ round circle base for the wreath.  Note:  When I’m making a tiny wreath I punch out a circle using my 3/4″ circle punch and then use my snips to cut out the center to create the wreath base.  I attach the two ends together using glossy accents to close the base.

2

  • Cut the tiny leaves using green cardstock and punch out several red 1/8″ circles.
  • Begin attaching the leaves to the wreath base using glossy accents and continue all the way around.
  • Attach tiny red circles to the wreath using glossy accents.
  • Tie a tiny gold bow and attach it to the wreath using glue dots.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the wreath to the chimney and then finish by adding red stickles to the red circles.

Come see how I made this fun stuck Santa Christmas card.

Deer Christmas Card

My project today is a pretty nature scene with deer Christmas card.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Deer Family, Evergreen Trees, Deckle Hills, Holly and Greenery #2.  I framed the scene using the Nested Deckle Rectangles and Nested Rectangles and created the falling snow on the background and trees using the Splatter Background.

Come see how I made this deer Christmas card.

The Snowy Background, Trees and Frame

  • Cut the Deckle Rectangle using white cardstock and cut the frame opening using a die from the Nested Rectangle set.
  • Use white cardstock to cut two Deckle Hills layers, cut to fit the frame and attach to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Cut a piece of Kraft cardstock to fit in the frame, stamp the Splatter Background using white pigment ink and emboss using white embossing powder.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the Evergreen Trees, stamp with the Splatter Background using white pigment ink and emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach the Kraft snow background layer.
  • Attach the framed scene background to the card baser using ATG adhesive.

Come see how I made this snowy deer Christmas card.

Color the Deer

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Apply a fine layer of Antique Linen ink over the whole deer body using a mini applicator.
  • Use Vintage Photo ink to add darker shades of brown to the ears and upper body of the deer.  Note:  Check out my Coloring Die Cut Animals tutorial if you would like to see step by step photos of how I colored my deer. 

Assemble the Scene and Evergreen Arrangement

  • Tuck the trees in behind the snow layers and attach to the card base using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Secure the deer to the scene using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Arrange the holly on the frame corner and attach using glossy accents.
  • Apply Ultimate Glue and clear glitter to the evergreen branches and allow to dry.
  • Tuck the branches in between the holly branches and attach using glossy accents.

Deer Die Cut Winter Scene

My project today is a multi level deer die cut winter scene card made using several dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I used the Deer Family, Tree in Oval, Deckle Hills, Nested Deckle Rectangles, Tabbed Birch Trees, Small Birds, Winter Tree, Nested Rectangles and Pine Tree Forest.  I used the Splatter Background to stamp the soft blue falling snow.  I’ve made scene cards similar to this many times but this time I created a little more dimension.  I cut a framed opening on the card base and attached the background scene to the back of the card base using two layers of mounting tape.  The front frame was then attach with two layers of mounting tape leaving quite a bit of separation between the front snow layer and the back scene base.  I sure wish the pictures showed off the depth of layers.  If you look closely between the two deer you can see the spaces between the trees and snow layers.

Come see how I made this lovely deer die cut winter scene.

The Card Base, Frame and Snow Layers

  • Cut an A2 sized card base and cut a rectangle opening in the front using the second largest die from the Nested Rectangle set.
  • Cut a rectangle for the front frame and one for the scene base using the largest die from the rectangle set.
  • Use the third largest die from the Nested Deckle Rectangle to cut the frame opening.
  • Place the Splatter Background stamp in the MISTI and stamp the frame and scene base using Tumbled Glass ink.
  • Cut three Deckle Hills sections, two for the scene base and one for the card front. 
  • Attach two snow layers to the scene base using double stick tape.
  • Apply two layers of mounting tape to the scene base and attach it to the inside of the card base.
  • Apply two layers of mounting tape to the frame and attach it to the card base.
  • Apply a single layer of mounting tape to the front snow layer and attach it to the frame.

Come see how I made this deer die cut winter scene.

The Trees

  • Cut the birch trees and apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the trees.
  • Tuck the trees in behind the snow layers and attach them to the scene base.
  • Cut the winter tree into two parts, tuck the tree sections on both sides of the scene base and attach using strips of mounting tape.
  • Cut three trees from the Tree in Oval set and one section of Pine Tree Forest.
  • Tuck the trees in behind the snow layers and attach with strips of mounting tape.
    • The small tree in the background was attached with two layers of mounting tape.
    • The tallest tree was attached with four layers of mounting tape.
    • The front tree on the right was attached to the frame base using one layer of mounting tape.
    • The small Pine Tree Forest trees are attached to the frame using a single layer of mounting tape.
  • Use a small tipped brush to apply snow flakes to the trees and snow to the branches using white Gesso.

The Deer and Birds

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the whole body of both deer using a mini applicator. 
  • Apply a darker shade of brown using Vintage Photo ink and a mini applicator.   Note:  The lighter ink creates a good moist layer of ink to help with the shading of the darker ink.
  • Tuck the deer in behind the front snow layer and attach using strips of mounting tape.
  • Finish by attaching the birds to the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.

Masculine Die Cut Christmas Card

My project today is a clean and simple masculine die cut Christmas card.  I have loved creating cards with rustic trucks and Christmas trees since I first played with the Stampin’ Up! Loads of Love set. back in 2005.  Back then I did lots of fussy cutting and layering to create a dimensional truck and tree.  The Truck Die Set by Rubbernecker Stamps is one of my all time favorite dies and is so easy to assemble and is perfect for masculine cards. I paired the truck with the tree from the Tree in Oval  and Tiny Leaves and framed it using the Rectangle Combo #4.  The designer paper background is from the Carta Bella Christmas Market Collection – 6 x 6 pad.  There are several pages in the pad with the red truck image. 

Come see my easy masculine die cut christmas card.

The Frame and Snow Layers

  • Cut the designer paper to 5.50″ x 4.25″ and attach it to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Cut the frame using red cardstock and two snow layers using white cardstock.
  • Attach the two snow layers to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

Come see my fun masculine die cut christmas card.

The Truck, Wreath and Tree

  • Cut the truck parts using red, white, woodgrain and black cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces together and attach using rolled strips of double stick tape and glossy accents.
  • Cut tiny leaves using green cardstock.
  • Hand cut a tiny green circle to use as a wreath base and attach the leaves to the base using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the wreath and attach it to the truck door.
  • Tie a tiny red bow and attach it to the wreath using glue dots. Note:  I buy the 1/8″ red ribbon at Michaels for .50 and it’s perfect to use to decorate tiny objects like the wreath.
  • Cut two trees, trim them to fit behind the truck bed and attach using double stick tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the truck, tuck the tires in between the snow layers and attach to the card base.

Apple Basket Scene Card

Good Tuesday morning.  Today I’m sharing an apple basket scene card against an all white background.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Apples, Pears and Corn set paired with the Baskets, Deckle Hills, Grass #2, Birds Set and Tree Panel #1.  I like the all white background and tree  and how it allows the basket of apples and grass to be the main focal point.  The red birds draw the eye up and add another touch of color for interest.

Come see how I made my apple basket scene card.

The Tree Frame and Grass

  • Cut the tree panel using white cardstock and two grass layers using green cardstock.
  • Apply double stick tape to the front of the tree panel and attach the front grass layer.
  • Turn the tree panel over and attach the second grass layer to the back using double stick tape.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the tree panel and attach it to the card base.

Come see how I made my colorful apple basket scene card.

The Apple Basket, Grass Sprigs and Birds

  • Cut the basket using woodgrain cardstock and alpaca cardstock and assemble the pieces.
  • Cut the apples using white cardstock and apply Crushed Olive, Barn Door and Fired Brick ink using mini applicators.
  • Attach the apples to the basket using mounting tape for the first layer and glue dots for the other layers.
  • Tuck the basket of apples in between the grass layers and attach using mounting tape.
  • Tuck grass sprigs in between the grass layers and attach using glossy accents.
  • Add a few apples in the grass and attach with small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Finish the scene by attach a few birds and attach them using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made my pretty apple basket scene card.
