Rubbernecker Handmade Die Cut Paper Flowers

I have a colorful handmade die cut paper flowers project to share with you today using some brand new Rubbernecker flower, foliage and frame dies.  I used the 5109D Mixable Flower Stack, Small Leaf Group, Nested Circle Scallop w/ Holes and Circle Stitch One Piece Combined Die. One of my favorite things about these new dies is that the flower and foliage are a solid piece die that contains all the image cuts and don’t have to be cut apart.  The frame dies all come pre cut and are on magnetic sheets. 

I like making handmade die cut paper flowers

I started by cutting several sets of the flowers using Bazzill Sour Lemon cardstock and lightly applying Worn Lipstick ink on the petals using a mini applicator.  I used my stylus from the Garden Tool Kit and molding pad to form the flower petals and attached them together using glossy accents. I added tiny preformed Red Berry Nuvo Crystal Drops to each flower center and secured in place with glossy accents.  The foliage was cut using Old Olive cardstock gently formed using the stylus and molding.

It's so fun and easy to make handmade die cut paper flowers

I attached the Candy Hearts pink layer, white scalloped layer and pink circle frame to the card base using mounting tape.   Building dimension with the layers creates an added element of interest.  I attached two larger sections of foliage and larger flower to the center of the white frame layer using glossy accents.  I attached two smaller flowers to the foliage with glossy accents.  I finished by tucking two smaller sections of foliage under the flower and attached with glossy accents.

I had a difficult time getting the true color of my cardstock and flowers photographed for this project.  The colors are really so much pretty in person.  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you are inspired to check out the whole new January 2018 die release at Rubbernecker.  I had so much fun making my handmade die cut paper flowers and Rubbernecker has several new flower sets and I can’t wait to play with them all.

Impression Obsession “I Adore You” Valentine Card

Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Impression Obsession “I Adore You” design team Valentine challenge.  The new line of Valentine stamps and dies are so pretty.  I love the Heart Flourish framing the Hinged Heart die cut window with the small image from the String of Hearts set on the front and the larger heart and flower image inside the window. 

Making a Handmade Die Cut Flourish Heart Valentine Card is so fun and easyI secured the stamps and white cardstock in my MISTI and stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut the images out and colored them using Memento markers.  I used the Hinged Heart die to cut the window opening on the white layer and cut a second Hinged Heart in red.  I used my craft knife to cut the front flap of the red heart off and attached it over the white using glossy accents. 

It's so fun to make a Handmade Die Cut Flourish Heart Valentine Card

I placed a long section of 1/2″ double stick tape onto my table and rolled it up with my fingers to create an adhesive rope to attach the Flourish Heart to the card base.  I tucked the larger heart image inside the heart window and attached with glue dots.  I finished the card by adding white Nuvo crystal drops to the flower centers and around the board of the red heart.

Handmade Die Cut Paper Flowers and Delicate Frame Card

I enjoy creating a card  with handmade die cut paper flowers and a delicate decorative frame.  My project today was made using Becca Freeman’s Tallulah Frill Layering Frame Small set by Spellbinders along with Spellbinders Foliage and flowers made using the Succulent and Mum Flower set.  I thought the monochromatic cream paper would be perfect to create an elegant floral project. 

What fun to make a handmade die cut paper flowers and delicate frame card

I used my magnetic platform to secure the two frame dies in place so I could cut them both at the same time.  I used a layer of wax paper between the dies and cream cardstock to protect it from the dies leaving marks.  I ran the platform through one direction and turned it around and ran through the opposite direction.  I wanted to make sure I had a good cut since the dies are so intricate.  I turned both frames face down and attached them together using 1/8″ double stick tape. I removed the tape, applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base. 

Handmade die cut paper flowers and delicate frame card

I formed the flowers using a stylus and molding pad and attached the sections together using glossy accents.  The secret to creating dimensional flowers is using a good stylus and a fairly thick molding pad.  I sometimes use two pads together so the petals roll well with being pushed down with the stylus. I formed the foliage leaves gently with my fingers and attached the sections to the card base using glossy accents.  I added champagne pearls to the flower centers to finish.

Thank you so much for coming by today and I hope you are inspired to make your own handmade die cut paper flowers with an elegant decorative frame.

Die Cut Valentine Card

I like to use red and white to create a clean and simple die cut Valentine card. Silhouette images appear so crisp and clean with the colorful contrast.  I love using the Impression Obsession Songbird Branch cut in white and layered against the red Essentials by Ellen Folk Hearts. Layering the heart with the white Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables adds another element of contrast for the images.

making a die cut valentine card is so much fun

I used a large stylus and molding pad to form the leaves and the birds. The white scalloped background, the heart and the songbirds were attached using mounting tape. I never like creating projects where all the layers are attached flat to each other.  Adding space between the layers creates an element of dimension and interest to a clean and simple card.

I really enjoy making projects with lots of detail but it is also fun to create an interesting clean and simple project.  Thanks for coming by today. I hope I have inspired you to create a clean and simple die cut valentine card of your own,  

Die Cut Paper Flowers

I have another project to share with you today using die cut paper flowers and my favorite color combination.  I love the Impression Obsession Ornate Oval Frame and pairing it with a floral arrangement using Spring Wreath and Foliage.

I cut the frames and attached the sections together from the backside using double stick tape.   I applied small pieces of mounting tape all the around the the frame and attached it to the card base.  The Ornate Oval Frame die cuts all the sections out at once.  Each piece can be used individually or attached together to create a more substantial frame.

The foliage sections were cut apart and attached to the card base using glossy accents. The flowers were formed using a stylus from my Garden Tool Kit and molding pad.  I attached the flowers together using glossy accents and then attached to the foliage using glossy accents.  I applied small drops of white Nuvo Crystal Drops to a craft sheet to allowed them to dry.  I picked them up with the tip of my paper piercer and attached them in the center of the flowers using glossy accents.  I always like to use the “rule of odds” when creating a project with multiple images.  An uneven number of five flowers is far more interesting to the eye than if I had used four or six.

Handmade Paper Flowers with Die Cuts

Good Sunday morning.  Do you notice anything new about my blog?  I love the change!  How about you?  I thought it would be fun to make a homemade paper flower project using die cut flowers and a decorative die cut background for my first post.  I loved using my favorite red, green and white color combinations for my holiday cards but switching to my other favorite combination using purple, green and white is a welcome change.  I love to use this color combination for making spring and summer  handmade paper flowers with die cuts.  My project was made using the Spellbinders Annabelle’s Trousseau Layering Frame, Succulent and Mum Flower and Foliage sets.

I started by cutting the flowers, foliage and decorative background pieces using my Big Shot.  I attached the  decorative background to the card base using thin strips of mounting tape.  I used a few lightly placed dots of Crafter’s Pick Ultimate Glue to the back of the oval layer and attached to the white layer.

I used the larger and smaller stylus tips from my Garden Tool Kit  and molding pad to form my flowers and attached the flower layers together using glossy accents.  I gently formed the leaves with my fingers to add a natural appearance.  I attached two of the full leaf sections to the base using glossy accents and then attached the larger flower and two smaller flowers in place with glossy accents.  I cut a third leaf section apart and tucked it in behind the top of the larger flower to fill in to complete the arrangement.  I created white flower centers for the flowers using Tonic Nuvo White Gloss Crystal Drops.  To finish the project I applied several drops on a small piece of a Craft Sheet, allowed them to totally dry and then secured them in the flower centers with glossy accents.
