Die Cut Tractor Scene

Good Thursday morning.  Today I’m sharing a fun die cut tractor scene using the newly released Tractor by Rubbernecker Stamps and paired with the Winter Tree, Small Ivy, Tiny Flower Buds, Picket Fence, Small Birds, Chickens, Grass and framed using the new Rectangle Combo #4.  This little tractor made up in green and yellow reminds me of my dad’s John Deere lawn tractor. 

Come see how I made this die cut tractor scene.

The Scene Elements

  • Cut the frame sections using white cardstock and attach the two largest sections together using double stick tape.
  • Cut the fence and tree using Kraft cardstock and apply Antique Linen ink to the pieces using direct to paper technique.
  • Cut several sections of the individual  ivy leaves from the small ivy using green cardstock.
  • Cut a section of tiny flower buds using red cardstock and form them using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Cut the chickens using yellow cardstock and apply Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Fired Brick ink using a mini applicator.
  • Cut the Small Birds using red cardstock and apply a touch of black to the beaks using a black marker.
  • Cut the tractor using green, yellow and black cardstock and assemble parts using mounting tape and glossy accents.

Come see how I made this fun die cut tractor scene.

Assemble The Die Cut Tractor Scene

  • Attach the tiny leaves and flowers to the tree branches using glossy accents.
  • Attach the grass sections to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame.
  • Attach the fence and tree sections to the back of the frame’s mounting tape.  Note:  I turned the fence upside down so the straight edges of the bottom would show instead of the picket tops.
  • Attach the whole frame to the card base.
  • Tuck the tractor in behind the grass sections and attach in the scene using mounting tape.
  • Finish the scene by attaching the chickens and birds using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this bright die cut tractor scene.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this die cut tractor scene.  I think it is a perfect masculine card and it was so much fun to make. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a day.

Die Cut Seagrass Scene

Good Monday morning.  Today I’m sharing two similar die cut seagrass scene cards made using the new Rubbernecker Stamps Seagrass die paired with the new Rectangle Combo #3, Rectangle Combo #4, Deckle Hills and Small Birds. The sentiment is from the Best Friends clear stamp set. I love this seagrass die and have already asked Rubbernecker if they would create a smaller version.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Come check out how I made this pretty die cut seagrass scene.

The Scenic Background

  • Apply Eclipse masking tape to mask off the sky area of the background layer.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass ink to the lower portion of the background layer using an ink blending tool to create the ocean.
  • Remove mask and apply the clouds to the sky area using an ink blending tool and cloud template.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the ocean portion of the scene by dabbing it on with your finger.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Nocturne Versafine Clair.
  • Apply clear glitter to the paste and then set the scene aside to dry.

The Frame, Seagrass, Sand and Birds

  • Cut the frames using white cardstock.
  • Cut the deck hill sections using Kraft cardstock.
  • Cut the sea grass sections using green cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand layers using a mini applicator. 
  • Attach the sand layers to the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach to the card base.
  • Tuck the seagrass in behind the sand layers and attach with glossy accents.
  • Cut the birds using white cardstock, apply soft touches of Pumice Stone ink using a mini applicator and attach in the sky area using small piece of mounting tape.

Come check out how I made this die cut seagrass scene.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut seagrass scene cards.  They were really fast and easy to make and I think they will brighten the day of the recipient.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great week.

The Die Cut Wreath

Die Cut Hot Air Balloon

Good Friday morning.  I’m sharing two cards today made using the newly released Rubbernecker Hot Air Balloon die paired with the Winter Tree, Small Ivy, Small Birds, Cloud Tree, Tiny Flower Buds and framed with the Rectangle Combo #4.  We see lots of hot air balloons flown here in Florida and they are always so bright and colorful against the sky.  I was inspired to use really bright colors for both of my balloons and to have them floating just above the tree tops.

Come see how I made this die cut hot air balloon scene card.

The Frame and Tree Tops

  • Cut the frames using bright pink and aqua cardstock.
  • Attach the two largest frame sections together using double stick tape.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and set aside.
  • Cut the tree die using Kraft cardstock.
  • Cut the small ivy sections using green cardstock.
  • Cut the tiny flowers using bright pink and white cardstock.
  • Attach tiny leaves and flowers to the tree top sections and attach with glossy accents.
  • attach tree sections to the lower corners of the frame and then attach the whole frame to the card base.

Assemble the Balloons

  • Cut the hot air balloon out four times using bright pink, aqua, bright yellow and green cardstock.
  • Turn the balloon outline frame face down and secure the colorful pieces in place using double stick tape.
  • Attach the bow sections to the basket using glossy accents and then attach them to the balloon using glossy accents.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the balloons and baskets and attach to the card base.

Embellish the Scenes

  • Cut the cloud tree sections using white cardstock. 
  • Attach the clouds in the scenes using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Cut birds using bright pink cardstock and attach them in place on the card with the white background to add another touch of color.

Come see how I made this colorful die cut hot air balloon scene card.

I love how both of these die cut hot air balloon cards turned out.  They are so bright, colorful and happy looking.  I would love to have the courage to take a ride in a balloon but I’m afraid of heights so it will never happen.  LOL!  I hope you are inspired to get out your happy colored cardstock and dies and create a fun project of your own.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Lighthouse Beach Scene

Good Monday morning.  I have a sunny and fun lighthouse beach scene card to share with you today.  But before I get started let me explain why I have not posted for the last several days.  I have traveled two weekends in a row to work with Rubbernecker Stamps at the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo shows in Irving, TX and Pleasanton, CA.  I can’t tell you how much fun it was for me to meet so many wonderful people who have a love for paper crafting.  I was especially thrilled to see two of my longtime Splitcoaststampers friends, Bev Gerard (texasgrammy), who I haven’t seen in at least 9 years and meeting Harriet Skelly (hskelly) for the first time.  See pictures below.  It is such a fun experience to see people that I have had a long term online relationship with and then meet them face to face.  I’m looking forward to traveling with Rubbernecker to several more shows this year and will keep you posted on those dates and cities.

Come see how I made this fun lighthouse beach scene card.

For this project I used the 5202-05D Lighthouse, 5147-07D Sun Moon, 5202-06D Boats #1, 5162-05 Twigs, 5202-09D Waves, 5173-02D Deckle Hills and 5208D Rectangle Combo #4.

The Frame and Sand Layers

  • Cut the frame using white cardstock and the sand layers using light brown cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen to the sand layers to add depth of color. 
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of both sand layers and attach them to the front of the frame. 

The Sky and Waves Background

  • Apply clouds to the background layer using an ink blending tool, Tumbled Glass ink and a cloud template.
  • Attach the wave layers to the sky background layer using double stick tape. 
  • Apply tiny pieces of mounting tape to the last layer to pop it up slightly to add dimension.
  • Attach the sky and waves layer to the card base using double stick tape.

Come see how I made this sunny lighthouse beach scene card.

Assemble the Lighthouse, Sun and Boat

  • Cut the parts and pieces of the lighthouse using red, black, white and yellow cardstock.
  • Attach the parts together using double stick tape and glossy accents.
  • Apply a clear shimmer overlay to the window of the lighthouse to add sparkle.
  • Cut the sun using yellow cardstock and attach pieces together using double stick tape.
  • Apply a clear shimmer overlay to the sun to add sparkle.
  • Cut the boat using red and white cardstock and assemble the pieces using glossy accents.

Complete Assembly of the Lighthouse Beach Scene

  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the scene card base.
  • Tuck the lighthouse in behind the sand layers and attach in place with pieces of mounting tape.
  • Tuck the boat in behind the waves and attach using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Attach the sun in the sky area using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Cut several pieces of twigs using green cardstock.
  • Tuck the pieces of twigs in behind the sand layers and attach using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this lighthouse beach scene card.

I hope you have been inspired by my lighthouse beach scene to get out your summer dies and create a fun scene of your own.  I can imagine that the beach would feel pretty good to those of you who live in areas with cold weather.  I transferred flights in Denver yesterday and the ground was covered with snow and the temps were unbearable for me.  Lucky I got to be inside.  Thanks for coming by and a special thanks to those who have written wondering if I was OK since I hadn’t posted in several days.  I sure do appreciate being missed.
