Die Cut Doggie Scene Card

Today I’m celebrating National Dog Day with a fun die cut doggie scene card with two dogs hiding bones in the yard and a cat watching from the window. The dogs, cat and bones are all from the United We Flourish Good Friends Stamp and Die Set.  The window was made using the My Favorite Things Classic Window, The grass was made using Lawn Fawn Grassy Border and the window and garden flowers were made using Impression Obsession Tiny 5 Petals, Tiny 6 Petals and Leaves and Stems.  

Come see how I made this doggie die cut scene card with the cat in the window.

The Dogs and Cat

I secured the white cardstock and dogs and cat images in my MISTI and stamped them using black VersaFine and embossed them using clear embossing powder.  I used my snips to cut the images out so there would not be any white border.  I used Distress Inks and mini applicators to apply color to the images.

Come see how I made this cute doggie die cut scene card with the cat in the window.

The See Thru Window and Siding

I cut two windows frames.  I used one to trace around the inner opening on the card base to use for cutting lines and then cut the opening using a craft knife. I cut several 1/2 inch strips of cardstock to use for the house siding.  I attached the first strip at the bottom of the card using ATG adhesive and then attached the second by overlapping the top of the first.  I continued attaching the strips until I reached the lower third of the window.  I used my craft knife to trim off the portion of the siding that sent over the window opening.  I cut a 3/8 inch strip of cardstock, ran in through my crimper and attached it to the top of the siding for a finished look.

I applied thin strips of mounting tape on the back of the first window and attached it over the front opening. I cut two sets of drapes using decorative paper, attached them to each other so so the pattern would show from both the outside and inside and attached them to the window from the back side of the opening. Next, I trimmed the cat to fit in behind the drapes and attached with glue dots.  I finished by lining the second window on the inside of the card and attached in place using mounting tape.  You can see the inside opening of the card below.  Check out my See Thru Window Tutorial if you would like to see step by step photos of how I made the window.

 

Come see how I made this doggie die cut scene card with the funny cat in the window.

Completing the Die Cut Doggie Scene Card

I cut two grass borders and attached the first to the card base using ATG adhesive and the second using mounting tape.  I tucked the dogs in behind the grass and attached in place using mounting tape.  I cut several tiny flowers in multiple colors and several sections of leaves and stems.  I created the window arrangement by attaching foliage with glossy accents.   Next, I attached little clusters of flower to the stems using glossy accents.  I created a flower border in the grass with stems of flowers and then finished the scene by tucking several bones in the grass and attaching them with mounting tape.  There is one red ball tucked in the grass but it doesn’t show up well in the photo.

Come see how I made this fun doggie die cut scene card with the cat in the window.

Thanks so much for coming by today and I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut doggie scene card and have been inspired to get out all your toys and make a scene of your own.

Essentials by Ellen Beach Lady and Color Trend

Good Wednesday morning. My project today was created using the brand new Color Trend from Ellen Hutson LLC, the Quietude Color Palette. 

Color Trend July Quietude (003)

I used several colors from the color palette to create a fun summer scene card made using the Essentials by Ellen Beach Lady and Pattern Play.  I used the Impression Obsession All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2.

Come see how I made this fun scene card using the Essentials by Ellen Beach Lady.

The Framed Background

I hand cut two sections of cardstock using my deckle scissors to create layers of sand.  I applied Antique Linen ink to the layers using a mini applicator, then applied glue and clear glitter to add a sparkle to the sand.  The two frame layers were attached together using double stick tape and then both sand layers were attached to the back of the frame with double tick tape.  I finished by applying thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it over the blue sentiment layer.

The Beach Lady and Accessories

I stamped the lady on hot press watercolor paper and all the accessories and the lady’s dress on white cardstock.  I used black versafine ink to stamp the images and then embossed her with clear embossing powder.  I used reinkers and a watercolor brush to color the lady skin and hair.  I applied purple ink to the pattern stamp using a marker and stamped the image on the dress.  I colored in the flowers using a rose pink marker.  All the accessories were colored with the pink and purple markers.  I hand cut all the images and paper pieced the dress.  The hat and towel were attached to the lady’s hand using glossy accents. The shells were attached to the basket using glossy accents.  The lady and accessories were attached to the scene using pieces of mounting tape.  I finished the scene with a few shore birds.

Come see how I made this fun card using the Essentials by Ellen Beach Lady.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Beach Lady project and I sure do appreciate you coming by.

Essentials by Ellen Hot Mess Lady

Good Monday morning.  My project today is a die cut girl scene made using the newly released Essentials by Ellen Hot Mess Lady Stamp Set and Hot Mess Lady Die Set.  The sentiments in this set are so fun.  I chose to use the “Messy Bun & Getting Stuff Done”.  The lady is all organized and ready to roll with her calendar, files and day planner and let’s not ignore those pencils in her messy bun.

Creating a scene with a girl die cut is fun.

The Die Cut Girl

I stamped the girls a couple times on watercolor paper and again on designer paper using black versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I water colored her face, arms and hands using a watercolor brush and reinkers. I cut out the images using my snips and pieced the designer parts over the girl body and attached using glue dots. I cut an extra elbow arm portion out of the designer paper and popped it up to create an additional layer of dimension.

The Organizational Accessories

The day planner, files, calendar, pens and pencil pieces were stamped several times each using black versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I cut the calendar and files pieces out, layered and attached them together using glossy accents. I colored the tabs of the files using Memento Markers and scribbled a few lines on the calendar with red and black markers.  I folded back the pages of the calendar and bent forward the tabs of the files to add a little bit of dimension. I cut a slit on both sides of the planner closure and inserted the top of one pen in one side and the bottom of a pen in the other side and attached them in place on the back side with glue dots.  I attached the pencils in the lady’s hair with glossy accents.  The drink cup and energy bar were stamped , cut out and colored using markers.

Creating a scene with a girl die cut is fun and creative.

Assembling the Scene

The sentiment was stamped on the designer card base using black versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I attached the two frame sections to the card base using strips of mounting tape.  I attached the girl, planner, calendar and files to the card base using pieces of mounting tape and finished by attaching the drink cup and energy bar with glue dots.

Creating a scene with a girl die cut is creative and fun.
