Die Cut Alpine Window Scene

Ellen Hutson Die Sale October 15 thru 17.

Good Monday morning. My project today is a die cut Alpine window scene made using the new Essentials by Ellen Alpine Window set.  I was intrigued with this set when it was released in September and couldn’t wait to play with it.  These cut-away windows can be used individually or combined to create fun dimensional scenes.  Check out Julie’s great video tutorial on the Ellen Hutson store site.

Come see how I made this snowy die cut alpine window scene.

The Window Layers

  • Cut the house layer using a 4″ square piece of white cardstock.
  • Cut the tree layer using white cardstock and cut off the trees.  (the white trees will be replaced with green trees during the assembly process)
  • Cut several trees using green cardstock.  I cut small squares of cardstock and laid directly over the trees portions of the die to cut out the individual trees.
  • Color the tree trunks with a brown Copic marker.
  • Color the house using a dark red Copic marker.
  • Cut an additional white house, cut off the roof section using scissors and attach to the red house using rolled up double stick tape.

Come see how I made this die cut alpine window scene.

Assemble the Die Cut Alpine Window Scene

  • Cut strips of mounting tape and attach to the back of the house window section.
  • Attach the tree layer to the back of the house window layer.
  • Create two rounded ground sections by cutting the negative leftover portion of the house layer.  (I could have used the mountain layers that comes with the set but I wanted to have lots of snowy blue sky showing in my window.)
  • Attach the rounded ground sections to the back of the tree layer using double stick tape.
  • Cut a piece of light blue cardstock to fit behind the window.
  • Apply falling snow to the blue layer using a small tipped brush and undiluted white watercolor paint.
  • Attach the blue sky layer to the back of the scene using strip of mounting tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the blue layer and attach to a 4.25″ square piece of dark red cardstock.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the scene layer and attach to the card base.
  • Attach the green trees in the scene using glossy accents and rolled up glue dots.
  • Apply undiluted white watercolor paint to the tree tips and under the windows on the house.
  • Finish by applying a small amount of yellow Stickles to the windows of the house.

Come see how I made this pretty die cut alpine window scene.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut Alpine window scene project.  I had so much fun making it and can’t wait to see how I can use it next.  I’m not sure about you but I’m going to get out my Ellen Hutson die wish list and go shopping for new dies while they are on sale.  Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a great week.

Essentials by Ellen October Release

Ellen Oct 2018 available

Come see how I made this holiday card using the Winter Window set from the Essentials by Ellen October release.

The Card Base

  • Use the Scor-Pal to score lines every 1/4″ across the white cardstock to create wainscoting for the lower portion of the card.
  • Attach decorative cardstock and scored cardstock to the card base using double stick tape.

The See Through Window Scene and Trim

  • Cut a window using white cardstock.
  • Use the window as a template to draw cutting lines on the card base.
  • Use a craft knife to cut along the lines to create the window opening.
  • Cut two white snow ground sections using the ground dies.
  • Cut two sets of evergreen trees.
  • Attach a piece of blue polka dot cardstock to a piece of white cardstock to create the sky background.
  • Attach the two snow sections to the blue background using double stick tape.
  • Attach the background scenery to the inside opening of the card using strips of mounting tape.
  • Tuck the trees in between the snow layers and attach in place with small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window and attach it over the front opening.
  • Cut a strip of cardstock 1/4″ wide and run through the crimper to create a chair rail section and tuck in behind the window and attach with double stick tape.
  • Cut a strip of cardstock 1/2″ wide and run through the crimper to create a baseboard section and attach along the floor line with a piece of double stick tape.

Come see how I made this Christmas card using the Winter Window set from the Essentials by Ellen October release.

The Presents

  • Secure designer paper and package stamps in the MISTI and stamp using black versafine.
  • Apply clear super fine embossing powder and heat with heat gun.
  • Cut out the packages using snips, arrange  on the card base and attach with pieces of mounting tape.

Essentials by Ellen Over The River Scene

ig-20180909-ebe-release-available-01

“Over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house we go”.  I had so much fun creating this fun wintry holiday scene using the new Essentials by Ellen Over The River Stamp set and the coordinating Over The River Die set.  There are so many fun scenic images in the set.  There is nothing I like better than making a snow scene with a red truck hauling a Christmas tree home.  I created a Christmas village snuggled in between evergreen trees and snow capped mountains in the background.

Come see how I made this wintry Essentials by Ellen Over The River Scene Christmas card.

The Scene Images

-I started by stamping a couple sets of houses on watercolor paper using black Versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I used Memento markers and watercolor brush to color the houses and I used the same basic colors on the whole community.  I hand cut all the houses to eliminate the white borders.  

-I die cut several evergreen tree groupings using green cardstock and then stamped the images using green ink.  I heat dried the ink on the trees and then lightly sponged the trees using green ink to soften the image and used a brown marker to color the tree trunks.  T

-The truck was stamped on red cardstock using the black Versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I hand cut the truck to eliminate the outline border.  I used a craft knife to cut out the window. I cut one of the tree sections to create a single tree and attached in the truck bed using glue dots.

-I die cut several mountains using Kraft cardstock  and applied white Nuvo Crystal Drops to fill in the tops to create snow caps.  I set the mountains aside to dry.

-I created a falling snow background on a piece of blue cardstock using a white gel pen.

-I hand cut two snow layers using deckle scissors.  I used a mini applicator and brown ink to create a road on the front snow layer. 

Come see how I made this fun Essentials by Ellen Over The River Scene Christmas card.

Assembling the Scene

-I cut a red frame, applied double stick tape to the lower portion of the frame and attached the front snow layer.  I applied double stick tape to the back of the first snow layer and attached the second snow layer. 

-I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the blue snow card base.

-I applied pieces of mounting tape to the back of the mountains and tucked them in place behind the snow layer.

-The houses were tucked in behind both snow layers and were attached with small pieces of mounting tape.

-Tree sections were tucked in behind the snow layers to fill in around the houses.

-The pickup truck was attached to the snow layer along with a couple tree sections.

 

Come see how I made this Essentials by Ellen Over The River Scene Christmas card.

For my project today I used a step by step format instead of a paragraph format.  I would love to hear from you if you find this format easier to follow and if you would prefer this for my future projects. 

Julie’s Over the River sets are so fun to use.  There are so many possibilities to create holiday cards as well as all occasion scene cards.  I have linked the sets that I used below along with a link that will direct you to the whole Essentials by Ellen new release.  You will definitely want to check them out.

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 Woodsy Lady

Essential by Ellen Leading Lady June

I’m celebrating the new Essentials by Ellen Leading Lady release with a fun campfire scene using the Woodsy Lady Clear Stamp set and Woodsy Lady Die set paired with several Impression Obsession dies.  I will list all of the stamp and die sets in the release below.

Come check out how I made this die cut camping scene with a foret background, campfire and camper perfect for anyone who loves the great outdoors.

The Woodsy Lady

I started by securing the stamps and paper in my MISTI, stamped using black versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I stamped some of the clothes sections a couple of times so I could paper piece over the woodsy lady base layer.   I colored the lady using distress reinkers and an aqua brush and cut her out by hand so there wouldn’t be any white border around her.  I cut out the clothes sections and attached using glossy accents and glue dots.  I stamped the lady’s head a second time so I could piece it over the base and allow the pigtails to be free over the vest.

Come check out how I made this die cut camping scene with a foret background, campfire and camper perfect for anyone who loves being outdoors.

The Framed Scene

I cut the tree frame using white cardstock and applied Vintage Photo ink directly to the trunk and branches using the ink to paper technique.  I lightly rubbed the ink around a little with a wet baby wipe and then dried with my heat gun.  I cut a couple sections of the tiny leaves and attached them all around the branches glossy accents.  I cut a grass border and attached it to the back of the red frame using double stick tape,  I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame, attached the tree frame and then attached it to the blue card base.  I had cut a couple extra branches of the tree and secured more leaves so I could tuck them in around the base of the scene to fill in for a more woodsy look.

I hand cut a few rocks using gray cardstock and colored lightly with Vintage Photo ink and a mini applicator.  I die cut two sections of the fire, applied Wild Honey ink and then covered with glossy accents and clear glitter.  I attached the rocks around the fire sections using glue dots and then secured them in the scene with pieces of mounting tape.  

Come check out how I made this die cut camping scene with a foret background, campfire and camper.

Completing the Scene

I attached two pieces of square white cardstock to one of the tree branches using glossy accents and then applied Liquid Applique to the squares to create the puff look of marshmallows.  I attached it to the Woodsy Lady and then attached her to the frame using mounting tape. I made sure to line up the marshmallows so they would appear to be over the fire.  I finished the scene by attaching the thermos and binoculars with mounting tape.  Sad that the binoculars don’t show up well in the pictures.  I do love that the fir looks sparkly.
