Rubbernecker Handmade Die Cut Paper Flowers

I have a colorful handmade die cut paper flowers project to share with you today using some brand new Rubbernecker flower, foliage and frame dies.  I used the 5109D Mixable Flower Stack, Small Leaf Group, Nested Circle Scallop w/ Holes and Circle Stitch One Piece Combined Die. One of my favorite things about these new dies is that the flower and foliage are a solid piece die that contains all the image cuts and don’t have to be cut apart.  The frame dies all come pre cut and are on magnetic sheets. 

I like making handmade die cut paper flowers

I started by cutting several sets of the flowers using Bazzill Sour Lemon cardstock and lightly applying Worn Lipstick ink on the petals using a mini applicator.  I used my stylus from the Garden Tool Kit and molding pad to form the flower petals and attached them together using glossy accents. I added tiny preformed Red Berry Nuvo Crystal Drops to each flower center and secured in place with glossy accents.  The foliage was cut using Old Olive cardstock gently formed using the stylus and molding.

It's so fun and easy to make handmade die cut paper flowers

I attached the Candy Hearts pink layer, white scalloped layer and pink circle frame to the card base using mounting tape.   Building dimension with the layers creates an added element of interest.  I attached two larger sections of foliage and larger flower to the center of the white frame layer using glossy accents.  I attached two smaller flowers to the foliage with glossy accents.  I finished by tucking two smaller sections of foliage under the flower and attached with glossy accents.

making handmade die cut paper flowers is so fun

I had a difficult time getting the true color of my cardstock and flowers photographed for this project.  The colors are really so much pretty in person.  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you are inspired to check out the whole new January 2018 die release at Rubbernecker.  I had so much fun making my handmade die cut paper flowers and Rubbernecker has several new flower sets and I can’t wait to play with them all.

Handmade Die Cut Paper Flowers and Delicate Frame Card

I enjoy creating a card  with handmade die cut paper flowers and a delicate decorative frame.  My project today was made using Becca Freeman’s Tallulah Frill Layering Frame Small set by Spellbinders along with Spellbinders Foliage and flowers made using the Succulent and Mum Flower set.  I thought the monochromatic cream paper would be perfect to create an elegant floral project. 

What fun to make a handmade die cut paper flowers and delicate frame card

I used my magnetic platform to secure the two frame dies in place so I could cut them both at the same time.  I used a layer of wax paper between the dies and cream cardstock to protect it from the dies leaving marks.  I ran the platform through one direction and turned it around and ran through the opposite direction.  I wanted to make sure I had a good cut since the dies are so intricate.  I turned both frames face down and attached them together using 1/8″ double stick tape. I removed the tape, applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base. 

Handmade die cut paper flowers and delicate frame card

I formed the flowers using a stylus and molding pad and attached the sections together using glossy accents.  The secret to creating dimensional flowers is using a good stylus and a fairly thick molding pad.  I sometimes use two pads together so the petals roll well with being pushed down with the stylus. I formed the foliage leaves gently with my fingers and attached the sections to the card base using glossy accents.  I added champagne pearls to the flower centers to finish.

Thank you so much for coming by today and I hope you are inspired to make your own handmade die cut paper flowers with an elegant decorative frame.

Eyelet Framed Die Cut Flower Card

I have a feminine eyelet framed die cut flower card to share with you today.  Framing a floral arrangement on a card front adds interest and another element of interest.  My project today was made using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Bunch of Flowers, Curvy Leaves, and the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackables

Having Fun with Framed Die Cut Flowers

I started by attaching the Lollipop layer to the card base using mounting tape.  I created a double matted frame using the largest of the eyelet circle die and a Nestabilities Classic Circle and attached the two layers together using small pieces of mounting tape. I used the negative piece of what cardstock left from the eyelet frame cut to attach to the back of the frame using mounting tape and then attached it to the card base using ATG adhesive.

The flower sections were formed using my stylus and molding pad and attached together using glossy accents.  I attached the flowers to the card base using glossy accents and finished them by adding drops of white Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Hint:  I have a small section of non-stick craft sheet that I use to apply drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops in several different sizes and my regularly used colors.  It is a handy way to have them ready to use rather than making them and waiting for them to dry.  I use the tip of my paper piercer to pick the drop off the sheet and then attach in the flower center using glossy accents.  I formed the leaves gently with my fingers and tucked them in around the flowers and attached with glossy accents.

Making framed die cut flowers is really easy

I think this would be perfect to use for a birthday, get well or thinking of you card.  Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have been inspired to make your own framed die cut flower card.

Ho Ho Ho Santa Scene

Good Tuesday afternoon.  I seem to be stuck on making fast and easy  white silhouette cards this week.  My project today was made using the Impression Obsession Ho Ho Ho Square, Wreath Builder, Tree Landscape Layers, Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables and Spellbinders Matting Basics B.

I cut the scalloped layer and then used the frame opening using the matting basics rectangle.  The Ho Ho Ho Square is a square die but I wanted to make it fit in a rectangle card shape.  I cut two snow strips using my deckle scissors and attached them to the back of the frame using double stick tape. Next I attached the scene square to the back of the frame and snow layers using double stick tape.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and on several key places on the back of the scene and then attached it to the card base.

I finished by adding the small trees in the foreground and red bow with greenery to the top of the church steeple.  the ribbon is from Michaels. This card has a lot going on but was sure fun to fast and easy to make.

Thanks for coming by and I hope you are enjoying your day.

Santa Moon and Snowy Deer Scene

Good Sunday morning.  It’s been a while since I have been able to post regularly due to having eye surgery a couple of weeks ago .  I am happy to say I am doing really well and it was great to get back to my craft room this weekend.  My project today was made using the Impression Obsession Santa Moon, Snowfall, Deer Pair and Wreath Builder.  I wanted to create a basically white card with the Santa and reindeer silhouette in the background.  When I got ready to put something in the foreground I couldn't ‘t quite figure out what I wanted to use. I finally decided to add the two  white deer with just the touches of green and red.  They were in the foreground but didn’t take away from Santa and the big moon.

I cut the Santa Moon out of the snowfall background  and cut again in black.  I layered the white snowfall over a black background to show off the snow.  I layered the opening over the yellow to create the moon. O handcut two snow sections with my deckle scissors and attached to the lower portion of the scene.

I created a double matted frame and attached it to the scene using mounting tape.  I applied the holly and red berries to the deer with glossy accents and attached them in the scene with mounting tape.  The three additional reindeer were attached to the snowfall and frame using mounting tape.  I finished by adding touches of red stickles to the berries for a touch of sparkle.

Framed Poinsettia Arrangement

Good Saturday morning.  I never tire of making poinsettia cards during the Christmas holiday season.  I hope you don’t tire of seeing them.  I recently purchased the Spellbinders Thinking of You Scalloped Rectangle Frame Set and couldn’t resist pairing the smaller frame with a sugared poinsettia arrangement.  I used the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia Set, Foliage Set along with the Impression Obsession Pine Sprig Cluster to create the floral arrangements and layered the whole design using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Set.

I’m going to refer you back to a poinsettia tutorial I did years ago to show how I form the flowers and attach the layers together.  The forming steps are the same but for my flowers today I added color to my petals and foliage before I shaped them. I cut the flowers and large foliage pieces using white cardstock.  I applied Candied Apple ink to the poinsettia layers using a mini applicator.  I applied Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint ink to the large foliage pieces and large flower section using a mini applicator.  The pine cluster pieces were cut using Easter Grass cardstock. The flower layers were formed using my stylus and molding pad from the Garden Tool Kit and attached together using glossy accents.  I placed a drop og glossy accents in the center of each flower and inserted the tiny yellow flower center in place.  I used a Sofft stylus and tip to apply Cosmic Glitter glue to the flower petals and foliage and sprinkled them with clear Rock Candy glitter.

While I was at it I took a few step by step photos showing how I made the yellow flower center for my poinsettia.  For the purposes of the mini tutorial I made the cuts on the cardstock wider than I actually made for my flower so it would show up better for the photos. 

1

I cut a thin strip of cardstock about about 1/2” wide and cut several thin strips along one side.  I start making the whole thing bigger than necessary just so it is easier to work with and so my old eyes don’t give out on me.  Once it is completed I cut it down to the size I need for my flowers.

2

I gently rolled the paper around my tweezers to shape.

3

I applied glossy accents to the base edge and then closed around the tweezers.

4

5

I cut the strips off to shorten and then remove from the tips of the tweezers.

6

I turn the piece around, clamp it in place with my tweezers and trim off the base side to shorten to fit in my flowers.

7

I spread out the little strips and attach it in the flower center.  Remember that I made these strips wider to show better for my photos.  In reality my little strips were only about 1/16” wide and fanned out to look more delicate than this photo shows.

I attached the scalloped layer to the card base with thin strips of mounting tape.  I cut very thin strips of mounting tape and applied to the back of the decorative frame and attached it to the scalloped layer.  I used glossy accents to attach the poinsettias to the frame and then tucked the foliage sections under and around the flowers and attached with glossy accents. I like that the pine sprigs cut from green cardstock add another color of green so they show up well with the larger foliage pieces.
