Die Cut Fall Tree and Wagon Scene

Good Friday morning.  I have a colorful die cut fall tree and wagon scene card to share with you today.  The scene was created using Rubbernecker’s Winter Tree. Wagon, Tiny Leaves, Squirrels and Grass.  The background trees were stamped using the 3 Pine Tree set.

  • Stamp the trees across the page using green cardstock.
  • Cut two grass layers using green cardstock.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the grass sections and attach to the card base.

Come see how I made this colorful die cut fall tree and wagon scene.

The Wagon and Leaves

  • Cut the wagon using red and black cardstock.
  • Assemble the parts and pieces using glossy accents.
  • Attach several leaves to the tree branches using glossy accents.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the tree and tuck it in behind the grass and attach to the card base.
  • Cut a small oval shape of green cardstock and attach leaves until covered using glossy accents.
  • Attach the leaf covered oval to the back of the wagon using double stick tape.
  • Tuck the wagon in between the grass layers and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
  • Attach the squirrels in the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Add a few falling leaves in the sky area and grass and attach with glossy accents.

Die Cut Fall Tree Scene with Squirrels

Good Saturday morning.  I have a colorful die cut fall tree scene with squirrels to share with you today with a sneak peek at the new Rubbernecker Winter Tree die.  The tree is bare with no leaves and I will show it soon in a snowy scene with snow on the branches.  I paired the tree with Tiny Leaves, Picket Fence, Chicken and Squirrels, Grass Set and the background layer was made using the Nested Rectangle Scallop set.

Come see how I made this die cut fall tree scene with squirrels card.

The Tree and Leaves

  • Cut the tree using white cardstock and color with a walnut Copic marker.
  • Cut two sections of the maples leaves using glossy accents.
  • Apply Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade inks to the leaves using mini applicators.
  • Gently form the leaves using  leaf tool from the Garden Tool Kit and molding pad.
  • Attach the leaves to the tree branches using glossy accents.
  • Apply sparkle to leaves using Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay pen.

Color the Squirrels

  • Cut the squirrels using white cardstock. 
  • Apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks using mini applicators.

Come see how I made this pretty die cut fall tree scene with squirrels card.

Assemble the Die Cut Fall Tree Scene and Squirrels

  • Cut the scalloped layer using blue cardstock.
  • Cut the grass sections using green cardstock.
  • Use the scalloped die to cut the front grass layer to create a matching scalloped edge.
  • Cut the picket fence section using white cardstock.
  • Attach the back grass section to the scalloped layer using double stick tape.
  • Attach the front grass section to the scene using a thin strips of mounting tape.
  • Tuck the tree in behind the grass and attach to the background using thin strips of mounting tape and rolled glue dots.
  • Tuck the fence sections in behind the grass and attach with thin strips of mounting tape.
  • Attach falling leaves in the sky area and tucked in around the grass and attach with glossy accents.
  • Attach the squirrels in the scene with pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this lovely die cut fall tree scene with squirrels card.

I had lots of fun making this die cut fall tree scene with squirrels.  Coloring the tiny leaves is a bit labor intensive but well worth the effort.  I hope you enjoyed seeing my sneak peek of the tree and I hope you’ll check out the new Rubbernecker dies being released on Tuesday.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend.

Die Cut Fall Leaves Card

Good Monday morning.  I have a die cut fall leaves card to share with you today using new dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I used the new Border’s #3 for the decorative base and created a pretty fall swag arrangement using Tiny Leaves and Berries Branches

Come see how I made this pretty tiny die cut fall leaves card.

The Stitched Decorative Layer

  • Line up the white cardstock and die and run through the die cut machine.
  • Line up the orange cardstock, cut and line up a second time to create a 1/4″ orange border layer.
  • Apply 1/8″ double stick tape to the back of the orange border and attach it to the white layer.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the white layer and attach it to the orange card base.

Come see how I made this tiny die cut fall leaves card.

The Branches and Leaves

  • Cut two sets of the berry branches using Kraft cardstock.
  • Use direct ink pad to cardstock technique to apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink to the branches.
  • Use a damp baby wipe to smooth the ink over the branches and set aside to dry or dry with heat gun.
  • Cut two sets of tiny leaves using white cardstock.
  • Use mini applicators to apply Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade ink to the leaves.
  • Attach the leaves to the berry sections of the branches using glossy accents.

Arrange the Branches

  • Attach two full branches to the white layer using glossy accents, one left and one right.
  • Cut small sections off of a third branch and attach with glossy accents to fill in the center of the arrangement.
  • Attach a bow to the center of the arrangement using glue dots.
  • Secure a few key spots of the branches to the card base using rolled up glue dots.

Come see how I made this colorful tiny die cut fall leaves card.

I enjoyed making this die cut fall leaves card and look forward to making more in the next few weeks.  You can check out my Coloring Leaves video if you would like to see how I colored my leaves.  The video shows larger leaves but the technique is the same for the tiny leaves.  I sure appreciate you coming by today and I hope you have a great week.

New Rubbernecker Dies

Good Sunday morning.  I have two pretty cards to share with you today using brand new Rubbernecker dies.  The first card has a see through window with a flower box full of ivy and flowers.  I used the 5157D Window 4 Pane, 5160-02D Borders 2, 5162-02D Large Ivy, 5160-03D Small Ivy, 5147-09D Flower Buds and 5147-10D Tiny Flower Buds.

Come see how I made this pretty see through window card with flowers using new Rubbernecker dies.

The Card Base

  • Cut a 4.25″ x 2.75″ piece of purple cardstock  and attach to the white card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut 8 4.25 x .50″ pieces of card stock.
  • Start at the bottom of the card base and attach the first strip of cardstock using ATG adhesive.
  • Continue attaching the strips all the way up the card base until you reach the purple layer.

See Through Window

  • Cut two windows, one for the front and one to cover the opening on the inside.
  • Cut one flower box.
  • Use the inner window openings as a template to draw cut lines on the card base.
  • Cut the window opening 1/8″ outside the template lines using a craft knife.  You may have to cut each section a couple of times to get through the layers of cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of one window and attach it over the opening.
  • Cut 2 1.00″  wide decorative drape sections using the Borders 2 die and run them through the crimper to add dimension.
  • Apply 1/8″ double stick tape around the inside window opening and attach the drapers leaving an opening to see through.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the second window and attach it on the inside to cover the drapes and opening.
  • Attach the flower box to the window using a piece of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this pretty see through window card with flowers and ivy using new Rubbernecker dies.

The Ivy and Flowers

  • Cut two sections of flower buds and one section of tiny flower buds.
  • Cut three sections of large ivy and 2 sections of small ivy.
  • Form the flowers using a stylus and molding pad.
  • Arrange and attach the large ivy in the window box using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the smaller pieces of ivy in behind the larger ivy to appear going up the window and attach with glossy accents.
  • Attach the flowers to the ivy using glossy accents to fill in the arrangement and complete the scene.

Come see how I made this fall tree and wagon scene using new Rubbernecker dies.

The Tree and Leaves

  • Use Kraft cardstock to cut the tree panel and cut one section of the tree off.
  • Trim off the branch sections away from the frame.
  • Apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink directly on the tree using the ink pads.
  • Wipe the tree lightly with a wet baby wipe to blend the ink and then heat dry.
  • Cut three section of the maple leaf portion of the tiny leaves die using white cardstock.
  • Color the leaves using Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade inks and mini applicators. (I was going to try and color each tiny leaf with all three colors but decided I liked the boldness of the single color on each)
  • Attach the leaves to the tips of all the branches to fill in the tree.  Cut off the lower two branches and attach them with glossy accents to the upper portion of the tree to fill.  This will leave a large enough opening under the tree for the grass and wagon.

The Wagon and Leaves

  • Cut the wagon out in red and cut the wheels in black.
  • Attach the wheels to the wagon legs using glossy accents.
  • Cut a rounded piece of scrap cardstock and attach a base of leaves to cover it using glossy accents.
  • Apply double stick tape to the leaf section and attach it to the wagon.

Come see how I made this fall wagon scene using new Rubbernecker dies.

Frame the Scene

  • Cut the rectangle frame.
  • Cut two grass sections.
  • Apply double stick tape to the bottom back of the frame and attach the first grass section.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame.
  • Attach the second grass strip to the back of the frame. apply double stick tape to the back of the grass and then attach the whole frame to the card base.
  • Apply 1/8″ double stick tape to the trunk of the tree and tiny pieces of mounting tape to the back of a few keys leaves and attach the tree in the scene.
  • Tuck the wagon in behind the grass and attach with a piece of mounting tape.
  • Attach the wagon handle to the wagon and frame using glossy accents.
  • Finish the scene by attaching a falling leaves in the sky area using glossy accents, and adding a few more leaves on the wagon and several in the grass.
  • Use a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to add sparkle and shine to all the leaves.

I had so much fun playing with these new Rubbernecker dies.  I hope you enjoyed seeing my projects with them today and that you’ll take some time to get crafty.

Impression Obsession Fall Winter Die Release

Good Monday morning.  I have really enjoyed playing with the new Impression Obsession fall winter die release.  I always love it when they release scenic dies that can be used for masculine cards.  My first project was made using the new Spotted Deer Frame layered over the Tree Frame with stamped Fir Trees in the background.  I embellished the card using Cardinals, Pine Sprig Clusters and framed it using the All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2.

Come see how I made this deer card for the Impression Obsession Fall Winter Die Release.

The Layered Tree Frames and Background

  • Cut the All-in-One Rectangle Frame, Spotted Deer Frame and Tree Frame using Kraft cardstock.
  • Trim off the deer and set aside
  • Apply the Antique Linen ink pad directly on the frames and then follow by applying the Vintage Photo ink pad directly on the frames.
  • Cut two ground snow sections.
  • Cut two ground snow sections.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower back of rectangle frame and attach one ground snow section.
  • Apply double stick tape all the way around the back of the frame and attach the Spotted Deer Frame.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the Spotted Deer Frame and attach the Tree Frame.  The double mounting tape layers will help add dimension to the scene.
  • Secure the blue card base and fir tree in the MISTI and stamp the tree background using Peeled Paint ink.  I stamped each tree twice for darker coverage.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the frames and attach it to the card base.

Finish the Scene

  • Color the deer using mini applicators and Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink.
  • Attach the second snow ground piece to the front of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the deer legs and tuck them in behind the front snow and attach legs to the back snow piece.
  • Cut cardinals using red cardstock and apply black to the beaks using a black Copic marker.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of each cardinal and attach them in the branches and on the ground snow.
  • Finish by apply glossy accents to the pine sprigs and tucking them in behind the front snow section.

Come see how I made this deer scene card for the Impression Obsession Fall Winter Die Release.

My second project is a 3 x 3 gift card made using the Squirrel Circle set and Tiny Single Leaves.  This is a small set and perfect to use for gift cards or tags. 

Come see how I made this fall squirrel gift card for the Impression Obsession Fall Winter Die Release.

Cutting and Coloring the Squirrel Circles

  • Cut both the tree layer and squirrel layer using 2.50″ squares of white cardstock.
  • Cut a small white ground section using deckle scissors and color it with a mini applicator and Peeled Paint ink.
  • Color the  trees and squirrel using mini applicators and Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink.
  • Apply a swatch of color on a piece of white scrap cardstock using mini applicators and Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade. 
  • Cut the tiny leaves out of the swatch of colored cardstock.
  • Trim around the tree background layer to make it fit well behind the front circle frame.
  • Apply double stick tape to the small green ground layer and attach in front of the trees.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the Squirrel layer, line it up directly over the tree layer and attach.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the framed layers and attach it to the blue card base.
  • Finish the scene by attaching the tiny leaves to the branches and ground area using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this fall squirrel gift card for the Impression Obsession Fall Winter Die Release.

Impression Obsession Things With Wings Challenge

Welcome to the Impression Obsession Things With Wings challenge.  I chose to create a tree full of fall colored leaves and birds.  I disassembled the new Spotted Deer Frame and used the two tree sections to create the base for my tree.   I paired the tree with leaves from the Oak Leaves and Rake, Picket Fence, Grass Border, Small Grass Border and Small Birds.

Come see my Impression Obsession things with wings challenge card.

The Tree Base

  • Cut the Spotted Deer Frame using Kraft cardstock.
  • Cut the two tree sections away from the frame.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink directly on the tree sections using the ink pad and then follow by applying Vintage Photo ink.  Hint:  The light color ink dampens the cardstock and makes applying darker ink go on more smoothly. 
  • Figure out how you want the two tree sections to fit together to make a full looking tree and then attach them together by applying glossy accents.

Coloring The Leaves and Birds

  • Cut several sections of the small oak leaves.
  • Use mini applicators to apply touches of Fired Brick, Shabby Shutters and Spiced Marmalade ink to create the colorful fall leaves. I ended up adding touches of Peeled Paint  over the Shabby Shutters spots to enhance the green.
  • Use mini applicators to Chipped Sapphire and Spiced Marmalade to the birds.

Attaching The Leaves and Birds

  • Attach the leaves to the branches using glossy accents and continue to fill in the tree.
  • Trim off the two birds formed into the tree branches using scissors.
  • Attach the colored birds over top of the trimmed bird areas using small pieces of mounting tape.

Build The Scene

  • Cut a piece of blue cardstock and white cardstock to create scene layers.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the blue layer and attach to the white.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the blue and white layer and attach to the card base.
  • Attach the tree to the card base using thin strips of mounting tape.  Use rolled glue dots to attach a few upper branches to the card base.
  • Attach the two grass borders together using double stick tape.
  • Attach the grass borders to the picket fence using double stick tape.
  • Attach the fence and grass section to the card base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Attach additional birds in the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Attach a few leaves falling from the tree and in the grass using glossy accents.
  • Apply Spectrum Noir clear Sparkle pen to the leaves and birds to add a touch of sparkle.
