Die Cut Christmas Cabin

Good Thursday morning.  My project today is is a die cut Christmas cabin scene card.  I wanted to create a snowy nighttime scene with trees in the background and a rustic cabin as the main focal image. The cabin was made using a section of the Rubbernecker Stamps Rectangle Combo set and a piece of Kraft cardstock.  I have more detail below on how I made the cabin.  The background trees were stamped using one of the trees in the 3 Pine Tree set and I embellished the cabin using Tiny Leaves and the frame using the Holly set.  The snow layer was made using the Deckle Hills set.

Come see how I made this die cut Christmas cabin scene card.

The Tree and Night Sky Background

  • Secure white cardstock and tree stamp in the MISTI.
  • Apply Peeled Paint ink to the stamp and stamp the trees across the whole page.
  • Heat set the ink of the trees using a heat gun.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply Scattered Straw ink in a circle above the tree tops to create the moon.
  • Carefully apply Weathered Wood ink to the sky area using a stylus and foam tip to create the night sky. 
  • Apply a clear overlay to the moon to add a bit of sparkle.

Come see how I made this snowy die cut Christmas cabin scene card.

The Cabin

  • Cut a scalloped frame and trim off a corner section to act as the roof for the cabin.
  • Cut a small rectangle using Kraft cardstock.
  • Use the scalloped roof section as a template to mark the cut lines for the cabin roof and hand cut using scissors.
  • Cut the window openings on the cabin using a craft knife.
  • Cut thin strips of Kraft cardstock to use to create the window panes and attach them to the openings on the back of the cabin using double stick tape.
  • Use a wet baby wipe to apply Vintage Photo to the cabin and window panes to create a rustic color brown and heat set to dry.
  • Cut a small piece of vellum, apply Scattered Straw ink to the vellum using a wet baby wipe.
  • Heat set the ink on the vellum and apply a layer of sparkle using the clear overlay pen.
  • Attach the vellum layer to the back of the cabin using double stick tape.
  • Cut thin strips off the scrap piece of the leftover scallop frame.  Cut scalloped sections off the strip and attach to the window openings using glossy accents.
  • Cut tiny holly leaves using green cardstock, form them with the leaf tool and molding pad and attach two to each of the window snow layers.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the scalloped roof section and the holly leaves on the windows.
  • Attach the roof layer to the cabin using strips of mounting tape.
  • Apply red berry sections cut using the Holly Set  and attach one each to the holly on the windows.
  • You can see the basic instructions for cutting and assembling the cabin on my handmade birdhouse post and YouTube Die Cut Birdhouse video

The Frame and Snow Layers

  • Cut a snow layer using white cardstock and the Deckle Hills die.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the snow layer and allow to dry.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower back portion of the white scalloped frame and attach the snow layer.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the scene layer.
  • Attach a piece of blue cardstock to the back of the framed scene and attach it to the white card base using double stick tape.
  • Cut holly sections using green and red cardstock.
  • Form the holly leaves with your fingers.
  • Apply the red berries to the berry bases using glossy accents. I love using my jewel picker to pick up and place small pieces like the berries.
  • Attach the holly sections to the frame using glossy accents.
  • Attach a white multi loop bow to the frame.  
  • Apply red stickles to the holly berries.
  • Finish the scene by applying falling snow to the scene using a tiny brush and white gesso.

Come see how I made this winter die cut Christmas cabin scene card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut Christmas cabin scene.  I had lots of fun creating the homemade cabin and I think it’s the perfect masculine card.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Clean and Simple Poinsettia Card

Good Monday morning.  My project today is a clean and simple poinsettia card made using the Rubbernecker Poinsettia #1 paired with the Berries, Greenery and Square Combo Frame. I really like the simplicity of the pink poinsettia and green foliage against the white framed background.  Don’t laugh but I got this card totally put together and realized I had failed to put a Christmas sentiment in the lower portion of the frame before I attached it to the card base.  Oh well…it’s still pretty. Maybe I can fit a die cut sentiment in the opening. 

Come see how I made this clean and simple poinsettia card.

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 pretty clean and simple poinsettia card.

The  Berry Branches and Greenery

  • Cut the berry branches and greenery using green cardstock.
  • Cut the berries for  the holly 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 berry branches under the flower petals and holly and attach with glossy accents.
  • Tuck the greenery sections under the flower petals and attach with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this lovely clean and simple poinsettia card.

I hope you have been inspired to get out your poinsettia, berry branches and greenery dies to make a clean and simple poinsettia card of your own. I sure do appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a great day and a great week.

Woodland Deer Scene

Good Wednesday morning.  I have a woodland deer scene to share with you today made using Rubbernecker the Birch Forest, Tree In Oval, Deer Family, Tiny Flower Buds, Flower Stems, Grass Set and 3 Pine Tree Set.  I needed to take a little break from Christmas themed cards and turned to this summery scene with the bright yellow background and flowers  I love how the stamped trees in the background create depth and draws they eye back into the scene.

Come see how I made this woodland deer scene.

The Tree In Oval and Grass

  • Cut the Tree In Oval using Easter Grass cardstock.
  • Cut two sections of Grass using Easter Grass cardstock.
  • Use the Tree In oval as a template to draw cut lines on the grass to fit on the front of the scene frame.

The Scene Background

  • Stamp the tree several times on the background layer using Peeled Paint ink.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass ink to the sky area and around the trees.
  • Use the Tree in Oval as a template to draw an oval cutting line on the stamped tree layer.
  • Use snips to hand cut the oval to fit behind the frame.

Color the Deer and Birch Forest

  • Cut the birch forest and deer using white cardstock.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply light touches of Pumice Stone ink to the bark marks on the trees.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo to apply ink to the deer.
  • Apply white spots to the fawn using a white gel pen.
  • Check out my animal coloring tutorial if you would like to see how I colored the deer.
  • Use the Tree In Oval as a template to draw cut lines on the Birch Forest and trim it to fit behind the frame.

The Flowers and Flower Stems

  • Cut the Flower Stems using Easter Grass cardstock.
  • Cut the Tiny Flower Buds using Sour Lemon cardstock.
  • Place the Tiny Flower Buds face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of the flower with a tiny tipped stylus to form.

 

Come see how I made this pretty woodland deer scene.

Assemble The Scene

  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the Tree In Oval.
  • Attach the Birch Forest to the back of the frame.
  • Apply a second layer of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the scene layer.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the scene layer and attach it to the Sour Lemon card base.
  • Attach the back grass layer directly to the front of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the front grass section and attach it to the frame.
  • Tuck the deer in tree trunks and grass and attach using mounting tape.
  • Attach the flowers to the flower stems, tuck them in behind the grass sections and attach using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this summer woodland deer scene.

There is something so sweet about this woodland deer scene.  Making it brightened my day and was a nice break from Christmas themed cards.  Have you started making your holiday cards yet?  Do you already need a little break from them?  I hope this card inspired you to add a little bit of spring to a cold winter day.  It was 38 degrees when I woke up this morning and that is plenty cold for us here in Florida.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Winter Deer Scene Card

Good Sunday morning.  I have a masculine winter deer scene card to share with you today.  There is a funny story behind the making of this card.  Well…..it wasn’t so funny when Cody, my Bichon puppy got up on the chair at my desk and took the Wildlife Tag (see below) and chewed off the top portion of it.  I had to chase him several laps around the dining room table to capture it and almost needed the “jaws of life” to get it out of his clinched teeth. LOL!  At first I thought it was totally ruined but as I examined it more closely I decided the lower portion of the scene could be saved if I covered up the damage with a frame.  So I pulled out one of my favorite frame dies, Square Combo #1 and created a frame just the right size to allow the major portion of the scene to show and that covered up the teeth marks left on the sky portion of the scene.   The scene was made using the Wildlife Set, Pine Tree Forest, Tree in Oval, 3 Pine Trees, Deckle HillsGreenery and Small Birds.

Come see how I made this winter deer scene card.

You can find the original Die Cut Christmas Tags post along with a beautiful poinsettia tag here.

Come check out how I made this masculine die cut Christmas tag.

Doesn’t he look way too innocent to have pulled such a dirty trick.  Don’t be fooled.  He got up on my desk yesterday and took two die sets, chewed up the packaging  and slung the dies all over the room.  Note to self:  Keep the door shut or keep the chair pulled well away from the desk when unattended.

The Tree Background and Frame

  • Cut the background layer using white cardstock.
  • Secure the background layer in the MISTI and stamp the trees using Peeled Paint ink.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass to the sky area using an ink blending tool.
  • Cut the frame using red and green cardstock.
  • Cut the tree portion of the Tree in Oval using green cardstock.
  • Cut the Pine Tree Forest using green cardstock.
  • Cut two snow sections using Deckle Hills and white cardstock..
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the  frame and attach the front snow layer and large tree.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame, attach the second snow layer and attach the whole frame section to the card base.

Come see how I made this masculine winter deer scene card.

The Buck, Birds and Greenery

  • Cut a set of greenery using green cardstock and use a tiny brush to apply white gesso to the tips and set aside to dry.
  • Cut the buck using white cardstock.
  • Color the buck using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink and mini applicators. Check out my coloring die cut animals tutorial if you would like to see how I apply the ink to the buck.
  • Cut a section of birds using red cardstock.
  • Cut three or four trees off the Pine Tree Forest and tuck it in behind the snow layer and attach with mounting tape.
  • Attach the buck in behind the first snow layer and attach to the base using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Attach pieces of white tipped greenery in behind the snow layer and around the buck and attach with glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching the birds using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this pretty winter deer scene card.

 I hope you enjoyed reading my “puppy tale”.  I have two puppies, Cody and Mickey and although I love them dearly there are times when I would like to take them out to play in the traffic.  LOL!

I had fun saving the injured tag and creating a winter deer scene card with it.  Have you had a chance to check out the Rubbernecker Black Friday Sale? You don’t want to miss out on all the items in the sale category.  Have a great day and thank you so much for coming by.

  • Add red ribbon garland to the tree and a multi loop red bow to the top.  I used .50 cent ribbon from Michaels.
  • Punch out several 1/8″ and 1/4″ circles using red cardstock and attach them to the tree using glossy accents.
  • Apply red stickles to the ornaments to add lots of sparkle.
  • Cut the gold star using metallic gold cardstock and attach to the tree using glossy accents. I used the Stars die to cut the gold star.

Die Cut Christmas Window

Good Thanksgiving morning.  I have a rustic die cut window scene card to share with you today.  The Window and background was stamped with the Rubbernecker Wood Grain Background and the tree and window arrangement was made using GreeneryBerries and the snow topper on the window was made using Deckle Hills.  I used one Small Bird on the window arrangement and one star from the Stars Die on top of the tree..

Come see how I made this snowy die cut christmas window.

Rustic Window and Card Base

  • Cut the window and card base using Kraft cardstock.
  • Secure the Wood Grain stamp in the MISTI and apply white pigment ink.
  • Secure the window and background in the MISTI and stamp the image.
  • Apply white embossing powder on each piece and emboss with the heat gun.
  • Apply brown ink to the window and background layer using a wet wipe.  Hint:  the wet wipe is a perfect way to get good ink coverage over an embossed area.  Just gently dab the wipe on the ink pad and smooth the ink over the whole piece.
  • Set the pieces aside to dry.

The Christmas Tree

  • Hand cut a piece of green cardstock in the shape of a Christmas tree triangle.
  • Cut several sections of the greenery die using green cardstock.
  • Cut the greenery sections into small sections and begin attaching them to the top of the tree triangle using glossy accents.
  • Continue adding pieces of greenery to the tree base using larger and larger pieces as you work your way down.
  • Check out my Evergreen Tree video tutorial and step by step photos over at Splitcoaststampers to see how I build my tree. The tutorial was done with different greenery branches but the procedure is exactly the same.
  • Punch out several 1/8″ circles using red cardstock and attach them to the tree using glossy accents.
  • Apply sparkle to the red circles using a clear overlay pen.
  • Cut the gold star using metallic gold cardstock and attach to the tree using glossy accents.
  • Finish the tree with a tiny red bow made using .50 cent ribbon from Michaels.

Come see how I made this die cut christmas window.

Assembling The Card Base and Window

  • Use the window as a template to draw cutting lines on the window base.
  • Cut the opening on the window base using a craft knife.
  • Cut a matching window opening on the card base using the craft knife.
  • Apply mounting tape around the window opening on the backside of the card base.
  • Attach a piece of designer paper to the window opening. I used a piece of retired Kaiser Kraft Christmas paper.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the window opening and attach the tree.
  • Apply mounting tape around the edges of the window layer and a couple pieces around the window opening and attach it directly over the window opening on the card base.
  • Attach the window die cut directly over the window opening.

The Window Arrangement and Snow

  • Cut the greenery and berry branches using green cardstock.
  • Cut the berries using red cardstock, pick them up using the jewel picker and attach them to the berry branches using glossy accents.
  • Apply sparkle to the berries using a clear overlay pen.
  • Attach the branches to the window base using glossy accents and continue to fill in the arrangement. 
  • Tuck the berry branches in behind the the front layers of greenery and attach using glossy accents.
  • Check out my step by step tutorial on creating an open window and evergreen arrangement.
  • Cut the deckle section using white  cardstock and trim to fit the top of the window.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the white layer using your finger.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the branches and berries using a small stylus.
  • Some of the brown ink floated up into the white embossing paste so I used touches of white gesso to cover.
  • Attach one small red bird to the branches and a multi loop bow to the arrangement for the finishing touch.
