Make Some Bright Colored Handmade Cards!

March Sale Rubbernecker (002)

I have been feeling very drawn to setting aside time to make some bright colored handmade cards. Maybe it’s because everything is so unsure right now but I am definitely cheered up by using bright, punchy colors and, of course, pretty flowers like on this card – take a peek!  The bright yellow designer paper is the perfect backdrop to allow the crisp white windows and colorful flower vases to pop. For this project I used the Rubbernecker Arch Trellis, Rectangle Combo #2, Vases and Shelves, Leaves and Greenery, Small Flowers #1 and Tiny Flower Buds.

Cheerful and bright colored handmade cards are JUST the thing to make and send right now - come see more!

The Framed Card Base and Arched Windows

  • Cut a piece of yellow designer paper 5.50″ x 4.25″ and attach it to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the rectangle frame and arched trellis windows. Cut one long side of the rectangle frame.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.
  • Use pieces of mounting tape to attach the arched windows to the card base.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the single scallop frame layer and attach to the bottom of the frame and windows.

You will love making these bright colored handmade cards as much as your friends will love receiving them!

The Bright Colored Flower Vases

  • Cut the vases using pink, aqua and bright yellow cardstock.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the foliage and aqua, pink and bright pink cardstock to cut the flowers.
  • Attach the foliage sections to the back of the vases using glossy accents.
  • Form all the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.

Spring Scene with Bunny and Flower Die Cuts

It is so much fun for me to make cards using a spring scene with bunny and flower die cuts.  They make a perfect card theme for Easter or a child’s birthday. My scene card today was made using Rubbernecker Stamps Rectangle Combo #2, Tree Panel #2, Bunnies Die, Birds Die, Mini Flower Stack Die and Small Leaf Group Die.  Check out the special “discounted” die bundles at the bottom of my post.

Cutting Images and Coloring Bunnies

I started my scene by creating the cloudy blue background using a cloud template, ink blending tool and Tumbled Glass ink.  The cloud layer was attached to the card base using ATG adhesive.  Next, I cut the bunnies and colored them using mini applicators, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink.  Check out my Coloring Die Cut Animals tutorial if you would like to see a few step by steps pictures of how I colored the bunnies. I cut the frame, birds, flowers, foliage and tree panel and prepared to assemble my scene.

Building my Scene

I attached the two largest frame sections together using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and secured the tree panel frame and a thin hand cut grass section in place.  I applied double stick tape to the back of the frame and tree panel and attached it to the background cloud layer on the card base.

The tiny flowers were formed using my Garden Tool Kit stylus and molding pad and were attached to the foliage using glossy accents.  I tucked the foliage/flower pieces in behind the frame and attached with glossy accents.  The bunnies were attached to the card base using small pieces of mounting tape.  I attached the birds to the card base with rolled up glue dots.  I added tiny pieces of foliage and teeny tiny flowers to the neck of each bunny for the finishing touch.

Kittie Kraft Bundles

Rubbernecker is offering a Kittie Kraft Bundle for a discounted price for the  bunnies, birds and tree panel.  This card bundle is a “special edition” which will be available on the site until Tuesday, February 20th.  You can also find the discounted Kittie Kraft Basics bundle of scene dies that I like to use for my outdoor projects over and over.  You can see the links to both bundles below.

I am so happy you came by today.  I hope you have enjoyed my spring scene with bunny and flower die cuts and that you get your dies out and make a fun project of your own.

Tiny Handmade Paper Flowers and Frame Card

I’ve been on a roll this week making handmade paper flowers and frame cards.  I love making flower themed projects and adding a sentiment that goes well with the theme.  My project today was made using the Rubbernecker Mini Flower Stack Die, Nested Rectangle Scallop Die, Nested Marquee Die, Small Leaf Group Die and Wildflower Set.

Making a tiny handmade paper flowers and frame card is so fun.

I started securing the white Nested Rectangle Scalloped layer and the sentiment stamp in my MISTI, inked the stamp with black versafine and stamped the image.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the layer and attached to the Sour Grape card base.  The frame was made using the two largest dies from the Nested Marque set.  I secured the two dies in place on my Magnetic Platform and cut with cardstock matching the card base.  I attached small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base.

Making a tiny handmade paper flowers and frame card is so easy.

The Mini Flowers were cut and formed using the stylus from my Garden Tool Kit and molding pad.  I secured the tiny white circles from the Mini Flower set to the center of each flower with glossy accents.  The leaves were gently curved  with my fingers and the flowers were attached with glossy accents.  I applied glossy accents to the foliage stems, arranged and attached to the frame.  I added one flower and leaf by the sentiment to finish.

Making a tiny handmade paper flowers and frame card is so fun and easy.

I especially love using the purple, green and white color combination when making handmade paper flowers and frame cards.  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great week.
