Circle Framed Die Cut Butterfly

Good Monday morning.  My project today is a circle framed die cut butterfly card made using the Rubbernecker Nested Circle X Stitch set, 2 Part Butterfly # 1, Flower Buds, Flower Stems and French Script Background.  I’ve had the French Script Background and Nested Circle X Stitch for a while but this is my first time using them.  I thought the soft blue script looked pretty as a background for the decorative butterfly and the X stitch pattern on the frame adds another element of interest.

Come see how I made this pretty circle framed die cut butterfly card with a French script background and tiny flowers.

The French Script Background and Frame

I secured the large background stamp and cardstock in my MISTI, applied the Baby Blue ink to the stamp and stamped the image.  Next, I cut the stamped image layer to 4.25″ ti fit on the 4.50″ blue layer.  I applied mounting tape to the back of the blue layer and attached it to the card base.

The frame was cut using the two largest frames in the set.  I used my magnetic platform to secure the dies in place on the cardstock and cut.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the script layer.

Come see how I made this elegant circle framed die cut butterfly card with tiny flowers and a French script background.

The Butterfly and Flowers

I cut the butterfly sections and attached them together using glossy accents.  I formed the flower buds using my stylus and molding pad.  Next, I attached pieces of the flower stems to the base of the butterfly using glossy accents.  I attached several flowers to the stems in a cluster using glossy accents.  The butterfly was attached to the card base using a piece of mounting tape. 

Come see how I made this elegant circle framed die cut butterfly card with a French script background and tiny flowers.

I think the circle framed die cut butterfly card is so pretty and elegant.  Thank you for coming by and I hope you enjoyed seeing my project and that you have a great day.

Snowy Die Cut Bunny Scene

Good Sunday morning.  I have a sparkly snowy die cut bunny scene to share with you today made using dies and stamps by Rubbernecker Stamps. I thought it would be fun to use the largest die from the Nested Banner Stitch Set to create a small scene. The trees were stamped with evergreen trees from the Moose Set. I used one bunny from the Bunnies set and three birds from the the Small Birds set.  I embellished the neck of the bunny using one small leaf section from the Leaf Buds set.  The designer paper layer was cut using the largest dies from the Nested Rectangle Small Stitch set.

Come see how I made this chilly snowy die cut bunny scene using dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.

The Banner Trees and Snow Layers

I cut the banner die once and cut the bottom half of the banner a second time using white cardstock.  I stamped the trees across the banner several times using both the small and large tree and Peeled Paint ink.  Next I applied ink to a tree die, stamped it off once on scratch paper and then lightly stamped a second tree layer.  I repeated this step all the way across the scene to create the feel that the trees are far in the distance.  I used my deckle scissors to cut snow layers from the bottom half of the second banner.  I attached the back snow layer directly to the banner using ATG adhesive.  The front snow layer was attached using strips of mounting tape.  I attached the banner to the card base using mounting tape.

Come see how I made this fun snowy die cut bunny scene using dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.

Coloring the Bunny

The bunny was cut using white cardstock.  I used Antique Linen ink and a mini applicator to apply a light layer of ink all over the bunny.  Next, I applied Vintage Photo ink to the ears, back and feet portion of the bunny.  Check out my Coloring Animal Die Cuts tutorial if you would like to see step by step photos of how I colored the bunny.

Assembling the Snowy Die Cut Bunny Scene

I wanted to embellish the next of the bunny with pine and red sparkly berries.  I took one section of the leaf buds and cut thin slices in each leaf using my snips and attached it to the neck of the bunny with glossy accents.  Next, I attached 3 1/16″ punched red circles to the foliage using glossy accents and added sparkle to them using red Stickles.  I tucked the bunny in behind the snow layer and attached with a piece of mounting tape.  Since the bunny appears to be looking up I attached three birds in the sky using small pieces of mounting tape to make them all  look like they are interacting with each other.  I felt the scene could use one more element of interest so I applied white embossing paste and clear glitter to the snow layers. 

Come see how I made this sparkly snowy die cut bunny scene using dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.

Thank you for coming by today.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing my snowy die cut bunny scene card.

Shabby Chic Framed Poinsettia

I have two shabby chic framed poinsettia cards to share with you today for the last day of Dare to Get Dirty over at Splitcoaststampers.  I used  the Impression Obsession Large Poinsettia Set, Small Poinsettia Set, Ornate Rectangle Frame, Ornate Oval Frame, Pine Pair, Pine Sprig Set and Berry Branches.  Today is the second day in a row showing how I add dimension with my Crimper.  The crimped Kraft cardstock combined with crackled texture paste made a perfect shabby chic background for my poinsettias and ornate frames.

Come see how I made this lovely shabby chic framed poinsettia card.

The Crimped and Distressed Crackle Layers

I cut two 5.25″ x 4.00″ Kraft rectangle layers and ran them through my crimper.  I scraped the blade of my deckle scissors along the edges of the cardstock to distress and dug into the cardstock in a few spots to create tears.  I used a small plastic spatula to apply the crackled texture paste.  I dipped the spatula into the paste to get small amounts at a time and then ran the blade up and down on the crimped cardstock lightly to cover.  I purposely left spots uncovered to create the shabby look.  Since I am impatient I heat dried the paste with my heat gun and watched the slight crackle appear.

The Poinsettias and Pine

I used both sets of the poinsettias for these cards.  I used the small set for the first card and the large set for the second.  I cut green flower layers to use as the base for my flowers using the largest dies in each set.  I cut one full set of the large poinsettia set and three sets of the small poinsettias.  I turned the flowers face down on my molding pad and formed each petal using my large tipped stylus.  I turned the flowers face up and gently pushed down in the center to make the petals pop up.  The flower sections were attached together using glossy accents. I formed several yellow 1/8″ punched circles with my small tipped stylus and molding pad to fill in the center of the large poinsettia.  I inserted white pre made Nuvo Crystal Drops to the small poinsettias and attached with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this pretty shabby chic framed poinsettia card.

Assembling the Shabby Chic Framed Poinsettia Cards

The multi part ornate frames were cut and the individual sections were attached together on the back using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frames and attached them to the card base.

I cut multi sections of both of the pine die sets.  I used the larger pine pieces to create a base and to embellish the large poinsettia and attached them using glossy accents.  I used the small pine sprigs to create the bases for the small poinsettias and attached them using glossy accents.  The poinsettias were attached to the pine bases using glossy accents.  I cut several berry branches and attached small pink 1/8″ circles with glossy accents.  I tucked them in around the larger poinsettia to finish.  I tied a few strands of organdy ribbon together, heated to crinkle for aging and tucked it in under the top poinsettia on the first card and attached with glue dots. I added shimmer to the berries and large poinsettia using a shimmer pen.  I left the smaller poinsettias plain.

Question.  Which of the shabby chic framed poinsettia cards do you like best? I go back and forth but I think the first card is my favorite.  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great start to your weekend.

Die Cut Woody and Surf Boards for DTGD Day 5

My project today is a die cut Woody and Surf Boards card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 5 of the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week long challenge event. This event is a special thank you to all of the fan club members who support the site all year long. Have you had a desire to be on the Dirty Dozen design team? This special week of challenges will give you tons of opportunity to be inspired and to show off your wonderful and creative projects right along with the current Dirty Dozen team as well as the alumni team members.  Are you a member of the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club? If not go here to check out all the benefits of being a member. If you are a member hop right on over the special challenge forum here.

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this sunny die cut woody and surf boards card.

The Sand, Water and Sky Background

The sand was created using Antique Linen ink, a stylus tool and foam tip.  Next, I used Tumbled Glass ink to create a darker shade for the  water and attempted to make it look like high rolling waves for surfing, and then applied a lighter shade of blue using the same ink and a cloud template.  I heat dried the ink and then applied white embossing paste to the water area to create the appearance of sea foam and then sprinkled it with clear glitter to add sparkle.

The Frame

The frame was cut using the Impression Obsession Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.  I turned the frames face down and attached the two pieces together using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it over the beach scene background.

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this bright and sunny die cut woody and surf boards card.

The Woody and Plane

The Woody was cut using both red and woodgrain cardstock.  The different sections were turned face down and attached together using double stick tape.  I wanted the tires to look a little oversized so I used a circle punch to cut two black circles and then attached the red die cut wheels with glossy accents. I cut the surfboard twice in yellow and blue and attached to the top of the car with double stick tape.

The plane was cut using bright yellow cardstock and the banner was cut using white cardstock.  I cut two thin strips of red cardstock and attached them to the plane using glossy accents to add interest and break up the yellow.  I used a black marker to hand write the Surf’s Up sentiment on the banner.

Assembling the Die Cut  Woody and Surf Boards

I cut one section of the beach fence and applied Vintage Photo ink to color it.  I cut a few sections of the Small Grass using green cardstock.  I cut the beach fence in half and gently bent the sections to create an old appearance.  I tucked the fence sections in behind the frame and attached them in place with glossy accents.  Next, I tucked the grass sections behind and around the fence sections and attached with glossy accents. The Woody, plane and banner were attached to the frame using mounting tape to complete the scene.

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this bright die cut woody and surf boards card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut Woody and surf boards beach scene card.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Die Cut Lattice and Butterfly Card for DTGD Day 4

My project today is a die cut lattice and butterfly card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 4 of the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week long challenge event. This event is a special thank you to all of the fan club members who support the site all year long. Have you had a desire to be on the Dirty Dozen design team? This special week of challenges will give you tons of opportunity to be inspired and to show off your wonderful and creative projects right along with the current Dirty Dozen team as well as the alumni team members.  Are you a member of the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club? If not go here to check out all the benefits of being a member. If you are a member hop right on over the special challenge forum here.

Come see how I made this clean and simple die cut lattice and butterfly card.

The Stenciled Pattern

I don’t often use a stenciling technique but thought it would be fun to see if I could use the lattice die cut to create a nice pattern.  I cut the Circle Lattice Die using a 4.5″ piece of scratch cardstock. The die is only two inches wide and I wanted to double the size so I line the die up along the first cut line and cut a second time to create a 4″ square die cut.  I placed the die cut lattice over a piece of white cardstock to use as a stencil and secured in place using painter’s tape.  Next, I used a stylus tool and foam tip along with Tumbled Glass ink to create the lattice pattern on the cardstock layer.  Once I was finished I heat set the ink with my heat gun. 

The Frame

I cut a Square Combo frame using the patterned cardstock and cut a second frame using white cardstock.  I turned the white and patterned frame layers face down and attached them all together using double stick tape.  Next, I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the 5″ square card base.

Come see how I made this simple die cut lattice and butterfly card.

The Butterfly and Flowers

I cut both sections of the 2 Part Butterfly #2 using white cardstock.  Next, I applied Tumbled Glass to the base butterfly using the stylus and foam tip.  I applied the blue ink to a scratch piece of white cardstock and cut tiny flowers using the Flower Buds die.  I cut several pieces of Flower Stems to use along with the flowers to embellish the butterfly.  I used my molding pad and stylus to form the tiny flowers.

Die Cut Lattice and Butterfly Card

I attached the white decorative layer of the butterfly to the blue base using glossy accents.  Next, I attached white flower stems to the butterfly using glossy accents to create a base for the flowers.  I used glossy accents to attach flowers and then attached the whole embellished butterfly to the lattice frame using a piece of mounting tape.  I finished by applying small dots of glossy accents to the flower centers and attaching white pre made Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Come see how I made this bright die cut lattice and butterfly card.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut lattice and butterfly card.  It was lots of fun creating my lattice stenciled frame to match the lattice die cut and I have been inspired with lots of ideas for using some of my other dies to create stencils for future projects.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Die Cut Fall Leaf Wreath Card DTGD Day 3

My project today is a die cut fall leaf wreath card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 3 of the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week long challenge event. This event is a special thank you to all of the fan club members who support the site all year long. Have you had a desire to be on the Dirty Dozen design team? This special week of challenges will give you tons of opportunity to be inspired and to show off your wonderful and creative projects right along with the current Dirty Dozen team as well as the alumni team members.  Are you a member of the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club? If not go here to check out all the benefits of being a member. If you are a member hop right on over the special challenge forum here.

Come see how I made this colorful die cut fall leaf wreath card.

The Frame

The frame was made using the All-in-One Frames Squares 2.  I cut the frames and attached the two largest sections together using double stick tape.  next I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the 5.00″ square card base.

The Wreath Base and Branches

The circle wreath base was cut using Kraft cardstock and the the die from the Wreath Builder set  The branches were cut using the Wide Tree die.  I cut the die three times using Kraft cardstock,  I applied Vintage Photo ink by swiping the pad directly on the branches and wreath circle base and heat dried with my heat gun.   I cut the branch sections apart into smaller branches to use to fill in around the wreath base.

Coloring The Leaves

The leaves were made using white cardstock and the Small Leaf Set.  I cut the leaves out four times to have make sure I had enough to create the wreath.  I used Shabby Shutters, Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and mini applicators to color the leaves.  Check out my Leaves with Distress Inks tutorial if you would like to see step by step pictures of how I color leaves.  You can also check out my short leaf coloring YouTube video.

Come see how I made this brightly colored die cut fall leaf wreath card.

Assembling the Die Cut Fall Leaf Wreath Card

I start building the wreath by attaching the small branches all the way around the base using glossy accents to completely cover fill it in.  Next I attach a multi loop bow to the base of the wreath using large glue dots.  Once the bow is secure I begin tucking leaves in around the bow and in between the branches and attach them using glossy accents.  The leaves cover most of the branches so I left a section of it open to show them as I think they add so much interest to the arrangement.  I added a touch of shimmer to the leaves using a sparkle pen.  You can check out my Handmade Twiggy Wreath Tutorial if you would like to see a larger version of this wreath.  The tutorial shows using the whole wide tree branch but the concept is the same.  You can see my Multi Loop Bow video if you would like to see how I tied my bow. 

Come see how I made this bright and colorful die cut fall leaf wreath card.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut fall leaf wreath card.  I had lots of fun making it and I love how it pops against the all white background.
