Flower Arranging with Die Cuts

My project today shows a good example of flower arranging with die cuts.  Every spring my mother would fill large pots arranged with mixed flowering plants and foliage to place out on the front and back porches.  They were so beautiful when the plants grew larger and filled in.  That is the look I was going for with my bucket of flowers and I especially love the color combination. 

For this project I used the Rubbernecker Wide Bucket for my container and filled it with foliage made from the Leaf Group and Leaves and Greenery set and flowers from the Small Flowers #1 and Small Flowers #3. I used the Nested Scallop with Holes and the Rectangle Combo OPC #3 for the base and frame and embellished the card with three Small Butterflies.

Click through to come over and check out how I use flower arranging with die cuts to create lifelike floral designs using Rubbernecker dies.

The Frame Layer

  • Cut the decorative layer using white cardstock and the frame using bright pink cardstock.
  • Attach strips of mounting tape to the back of the decorative layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Use thin strips of mounting tape to attach the pink frame to the card base.

The Bucket

  • Cut the wide bucket using dark blue cardstock.
  • Use the small fern stamp from the Outdoor Master to apply touches of white pigment ink to the bucket.
  • Apply white embossing powder to the bucket and heat.
  • Place the whole bucket face down on the Versa pad and ouch down to get full coverage on the bucket.
  • Apply clear embossing powder to the bucket and heat.  Note:  I was going for the look of the vintage granite enamel.
  • Cut the bucket handle using gray cardstock,, apply versa and clear embossing powder and heat.

Arrange the Flowers and Foliage in the Bucket

  • Cut the foliage sections using green cardstock. 
  • Arrange the different sized foliage sections in the pot and attach using glossy accents. 
  • Cut the flowers using purple, yellow and bright pink cardstock.
  • Form the flowers using a stylus and molding pad.
  • Add green dots in the center of the yellow flowers using a green marker and attach white premade Nuvo Crystal Drops to the purple flower centers using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flowers to the foliage using glossy accents.
  • Note:  It’s hard to see in the photo but there are three main foliage sections- wide leaves for the purple flowers, tall leaf branches for the yellow flowers and long vine branches for the pink flowers.  The wide leaf and tall branches created the main foliage base for the arrangement and the vines  were attached to look like they were spreading throughout the arrangement.
  • Apply a double layer of mounting tape to the back of the bucket and attach it to the card base.
  • Finish by attaching the three yellow butterflies using glossy accents.

How to Get Creative with Die Cuts

For my project today I’m showing how to get creative with die cuts and manipulate them to make different images.  I used rectangle and decorative shaped dies to create the pretty shaped tag and used the single flower die to extend the size and shape of the flower.  It’s always fun think out of the box and  find ways to extend how we can use our dies.  I slipped in a few step by step photos for you to see how I made the changes.   I used the Rubbernecker Nested Rectangle Small Stitch, Marquee 2 with Stitch, Organic Shapable Posy, Leaf Group, Tiny Flower Buds, Small Flowers  #3 and Blooms Your Way.

Click through to see how to get creative with die cuts and manipulate them to create differernt images for your card projects.

Create the Tag

1

  • Cut the rectangle using the third largest die in the set.
  • Slip the top of the rectangle inside the marquee die opening and leave the bottom of the rectangle on the outside of the marquee die.

2

  • Line up the center of the marquee die on the center of the rectangle.
  • Place the marquee die and rectangle cardstock on the cutting platform.
  • Run the machine just far enough in to cut the top portion and create the decorative tag top.

4

  • Notice how well the stitching pattern from both dies lined up on the tag.
  • I want to give credit to Julie Warner  for showing how to create different shapes with dies.

Come see how to get creative with die cuts and manipulate them to create differernt images for your card projects.

Create a New Flower

  • See the original shape of the Organic Shapable Posy below.

5301-02D Organic Shapable Posy Die

  • Cut the flower section four times using bright pink cardstock and form the petals using a large round stylus and molding pad.

7

  • Cut a small rectangle using matching cardstock to use to attach the flower sections together.
  • Note:  Attaching the flower sections to the rectangle allows me to create a larger flower base.

8

  • Apply glossy accents to the back of each flower center and attach them to the small rectangle piece.

10

  • Next line up the two additional flowers, offsetting the petals and attach them to the flower base using glossy accents.

13

  • Punch a 1/2″ circle using white cardstock and cut the tiny flower buds using white cardstock.
  • Form the 1/2″ circle using the large round stylus and molding pad and form the flower buds using a small tipped stylus and molding.
  • Apply a double layer of mounting tape to the back of the circle and place in the center of the flower.
  • Cover the domed circle using tiny flower buds and attach using glossy accents.

Assemble the Card

  • Stamp the sentiment on the tag using black ink.
  • Cut a rectangle layer using bright pink cardstock and attach it to the card base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Attach strips of mounting tape to the back of the tag and attach it to the pink layer.
  • Cut two sections of the leaf group and attach it to the tag using glossy accents.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the large flower to the tag base.
  • Attach small purple flowers to the branches using glossy accents.
  • Cut tiny yellow flower buds and attach them to the purple flower centers using glossy accents.

Click on the picture to see how to get creative with die cuts and manipulate them to create differernt images for your card projects.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my “how to get creative with die cuts” post and that you have been inspired to think of new ways to use your dies.  I didn’t have a large tag and decided to create one with what I had.  Check out my Christmas Cabin post for another example of how I used dies I had to create something different. Thank you for coming by and I hope you hare staying safe and sound.

How to get creative with die cuts.

Framed Die Cut Flower Pot

Today I’m sharing a framed die cut flower pot full of flowers using the Rubbernecker Rectangle Combo #3 paired with the Nested Rectangle w/Holes, Tall Terracotta Pots, Small Ivy, Small Flowers #3 and Small Butterflies.  All the decorative white layers of the frame add interest and dimension and still allows the flower pot to be the main focal image.  I think the tiny pink butterflies are the perfect touch to finish this feminine card.

I'm sharing a framed die cut flower pot using several dies by Rubbernecker. Click on the picture to come over to see how I made this pretty card.

The Layered Frame Card Base

  • Cut the Rectangle Combo frames and the Rectangle Scallop layers using white cardstock.
  • Turn the frames face down and attach the layers together using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frames and attach them to the smaller white scallop layer.
  • Cut a pink rectangle layer to fit behind the frames and attach them together using double stick tape.
  • Attach the frame and scallop layers to the largest scallop layer using double stick tape.
  • Finish the card base by attaching the completed frame layers to the white card base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Note:  I love that the scallop with hole theme gets carried on from the oval frame opening to the last layer on the card.

Layered frames are perfect to hightlight a small focal image. Click on the picture to come over and see how I made this lovely card.

The Pot of Flowers

  • Cut the terracotta pot using yellow cardstock.
  • Color the pot using a mini applicator and Color Fuse Set #2 inks.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the ivy and pink cardstock to cut the small flowers.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Arrange and attach the ivy to the back of the pot using glossy accents.  Attach one ivy branch hanging down over the font of the pot.
  • Attach the flowers to the ivy branches using glossy accents.
  • Apply a piece of mounting tape to the back of the pot and attach it to the card base.
  • Attach three tiny pink butterflies to the frame using glossy accents. 
  • Attach pre made white Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops to each butterfly using glossy accents.
  • Finish the card by cutting thin strips of pink cardstock to use a ribbon tails, gently form them with your fingers and tuck them in under the ivy and attach i place with glossy accents.

 

I love to use layered frames to highlight a small focal image. Click on the picture to come over to my blog and see how I made this lovely card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my framed die cut flower pot card.  This is such a feminine card and would be perfect for almost any occasion.  I have made so many terracotta pots full of flowers and I love framing them.  You can see lots more flower pot inspiration at this Kittie Kraft link.  For even more inspiration you can check out this Pinterest link.  Thank you for coming by and I hope you have a great week.  Please feel free to upload and share links to your “social distancing” craft projects.  If you are like me you are totally taking advantage of all this time being home and spending time in  your craft room.

Garden Tools Dies and Rubbernecker Sale

March Sale Rubbernecker (002)

I love creating outdoor scene cards that focuses on a theme like these garden tools dies.  The pots of flowers have been set out along the fence ready for planting and the tools are ready to do their work to spruce up the yard for spring. For this project I used the new Rubbernecker Garden Tools, Spring Leaves, Leaves and Greenery, Small Flowers #3 paired with the Winter Tree, Tall Terracotta Pots, Picket Fence, Grass and Small Butterflies.

It was so much fun to create this garden tools dies card with the pretty flower pots. Click thru to see how I created this cheerful scene.

The Card Base, Grass and Fence

  • Cut a blue layer 4.50″ x 3.25″ and attach it to the white A2 sized card base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Use green cardstock to cut a grass layer and white cardstock to cut the fence.
  • Attach the fence to the back of the grass layer using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the grass and fence layer and attach it to the blue card base.

The Tree

  • Cut the tree using light brown cardstock and apply Vintage Photo ink by rubbing the ink pad directly over the cardstock.
  • Gently wipe a wet baby wipe over the tree to blend in the ink to the trunk and branches.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the leaves, and form each leaf with a leaf tool and molding pad.
  • Attach the leaves to the tree branches using glossy accents.  Note:  I use my reverse action tweezers to pick up the leaves and place them right where I want them.  The tweezers are like having a third hand and are such a big help when working with small die cuts.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the tree trunk and a few rolled up glue dots to  spots on the back of leaves, tuck it in behind the fence and attach to the card base.

I am so in love with the new Rubbernecker die cut flower vases, Click thru to see how I made this coorful clean and simple card

The Vases, Foliage and Flowers

  • Cut the vases using three different colored cardstock and the shelf using aqua cardstock.  Note:  I applied black Nuvo Crystal drops to one of the vases to create interest with a pattern.
  • Use the same colored cardstock to cut the flowers and green cardstock to cut the foliage.
  • Attach the foliage to the back of each vase using glossy accents.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach the multi layer flowers together using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flowers to the foliage using glossy accents.

 

The new Rubbernecker die cut flower vases creates so many wonderful cardmaking oppotunities. Click thru to see how I cam up with this card design.

The Card Base and Sentiment

  • Use white cardstock to cut the decorative layer and aqua cardstock to cut the background layer.
  • Stamp the hello sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
  • Attach the aqua layer to the white card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the white eyelet layer and attach to the aqua layer.

Finish the Card

  • Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the shelf and attach it to the card base.
  • Use mounting tape to attach the three vases to the card base.
  • Cut the small butterflies using aqua cardstock and attach them to the card base using glossy accents.

Have you had the chance to take a look at my new “Kittie Says” Phrases #1 set?  Sentiments that are short and sweet work best on my style of cards.  l put together this list of all occasion sentiments and worked with Rubbernecker to get them made into a lovely clear stamp set.  We chose a few different fonts that were pretty, easy to read and we made the words small enough to easily fit on card fronts.
