Shabby Chic Framed Poinsettia

I have two shabby chic framed poinsettia cards to share with you today for the last day of Dare to Get Dirty over at Splitcoaststampers.  I used  the Impression Obsession Large Poinsettia Set, Small Poinsettia Set, Ornate Rectangle Frame, Ornate Oval Frame, Pine Pair, Pine Sprig Set and Berry Branches.  Today is the second day in a row showing how I add dimension with my Crimper.  The crimped Kraft cardstock combined with crackled texture paste made a perfect shabby chic background for my poinsettias and ornate frames.

Come see how I made this lovely shabby chic framed poinsettia card.

The Crimped and Distressed Crackle Layers

I cut two 5.25″ x 4.00″ Kraft rectangle layers and ran them through my crimper.  I scraped the blade of my deckle scissors along the edges of the cardstock to distress and dug into the cardstock in a few spots to create tears.  I used a small plastic spatula to apply the crackled texture paste.  I dipped the spatula into the paste to get small amounts at a time and then ran the blade up and down on the crimped cardstock lightly to cover.  I purposely left spots uncovered to create the shabby look.  Since I am impatient I heat dried the paste with my heat gun and watched the slight crackle appear.

The Poinsettias and Pine

I used both sets of the poinsettias for these cards.  I used the small set for the first card and the large set for the second.  I cut green flower layers to use as the base for my flowers using the largest dies in each set.  I cut one full set of the large poinsettia set and three sets of the small poinsettias.  I turned the flowers face down on my molding pad and formed each petal using my large tipped stylus.  I turned the flowers face up and gently pushed down in the center to make the petals pop up.  The flower sections were attached together using glossy accents. I formed several yellow 1/8″ punched circles with my small tipped stylus and molding pad to fill in the center of the large poinsettia.  I inserted white pre made Nuvo Crystal Drops to the small poinsettias and attached with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this pretty shabby chic framed poinsettia card.

Assembling the Shabby Chic Framed Poinsettia Cards

The multi part ornate frames were cut and the individual sections were attached together on the back using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frames and attached them to the card base.

I cut multi sections of both of the pine die sets.  I used the larger pine pieces to create a base and to embellish the large poinsettia and attached them using glossy accents.  I used the small pine sprigs to create the bases for the small poinsettias and attached them using glossy accents.  The poinsettias were attached to the pine bases using glossy accents.  I cut several berry branches and attached small pink 1/8″ circles with glossy accents.  I tucked them in around the larger poinsettia to finish.  I tied a few strands of organdy ribbon together, heated to crinkle for aging and tucked it in under the top poinsettia on the first card and attached with glue dots. I added shimmer to the berries and large poinsettia using a shimmer pen.  I left the smaller poinsettias plain.

Question.  Which of the shabby chic framed poinsettia cards do you like best? I go back and forth but I think the first card is my favorite.  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great start to your weekend.

Die Cut Woody and Surf Boards for DTGD Day 5

My project today is a die cut Woody and Surf Boards card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 5 of the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week long challenge event. This event is a special thank you to all of the fan club members who support the site all year long. Have you had a desire to be on the Dirty Dozen design team? This special week of challenges will give you tons of opportunity to be inspired and to show off your wonderful and creative projects right along with the current Dirty Dozen team as well as the alumni team members.  Are you a member of the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club? If not go here to check out all the benefits of being a member. If you are a member hop right on over the special challenge forum here.

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this sunny die cut woody and surf boards card.

The Sand, Water and Sky Background

The sand was created using Antique Linen ink, a stylus tool and foam tip.  Next, I used Tumbled Glass ink to create a darker shade for the  water and attempted to make it look like high rolling waves for surfing, and then applied a lighter shade of blue using the same ink and a cloud template.  I heat dried the ink and then applied white embossing paste to the water area to create the appearance of sea foam and then sprinkled it with clear glitter to add sparkle.

The Frame

The frame was cut using the Impression Obsession Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.  I turned the frames face down and attached the two pieces together using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it over the beach scene background.

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this bright and sunny die cut woody and surf boards card.

The Woody and Plane

The Woody was cut using both red and woodgrain cardstock.  The different sections were turned face down and attached together using double stick tape.  I wanted the tires to look a little oversized so I used a circle punch to cut two black circles and then attached the red die cut wheels with glossy accents. I cut the surfboard twice in yellow and blue and attached to the top of the car with double stick tape.

The plane was cut using bright yellow cardstock and the banner was cut using white cardstock.  I cut two thin strips of red cardstock and attached them to the plane using glossy accents to add interest and break up the yellow.  I used a black marker to hand write the Surf’s Up sentiment on the banner.

Assembling the Die Cut  Woody and Surf Boards

I cut one section of the beach fence and applied Vintage Photo ink to color it.  I cut a few sections of the Small Grass using green cardstock.  I cut the beach fence in half and gently bent the sections to create an old appearance.  I tucked the fence sections in behind the frame and attached them in place with glossy accents.  Next, I tucked the grass sections behind and around the fence sections and attached with glossy accents. The Woody, plane and banner were attached to the frame using mounting tape to complete the scene.

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this bright die cut woody and surf boards card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut Woody and surf boards beach scene card.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Die Cut Fall Leaf Wreath Card DTGD Day 3

My project today is a die cut fall leaf wreath card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 3 of the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week long challenge event. This event is a special thank you to all of the fan club members who support the site all year long. Have you had a desire to be on the Dirty Dozen design team? This special week of challenges will give you tons of opportunity to be inspired and to show off your wonderful and creative projects right along with the current Dirty Dozen team as well as the alumni team members.  Are you a member of the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club? If not go here to check out all the benefits of being a member. If you are a member hop right on over the special challenge forum here.

Come see how I made this colorful die cut fall leaf wreath card.

The Frame

The frame was made using the All-in-One Frames Squares 2.  I cut the frames and attached the two largest sections together using double stick tape.  next I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the 5.00″ square card base.

The Wreath Base and Branches

The circle wreath base was cut using Kraft cardstock and the the die from the Wreath Builder set  The branches were cut using the Wide Tree die.  I cut the die three times using Kraft cardstock,  I applied Vintage Photo ink by swiping the pad directly on the branches and wreath circle base and heat dried with my heat gun.   I cut the branch sections apart into smaller branches to use to fill in around the wreath base.

Coloring The Leaves

The leaves were made using white cardstock and the Small Leaf Set.  I cut the leaves out four times to have make sure I had enough to create the wreath.  I used Shabby Shutters, Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and mini applicators to color the leaves.  Check out my Leaves with Distress Inks tutorial if you would like to see step by step pictures of how I color leaves.  You can also check out my short leaf coloring YouTube video.

Come see how I made this brightly colored die cut fall leaf wreath card.

Assembling the Die Cut Fall Leaf Wreath Card

I start building the wreath by attaching the small branches all the way around the base using glossy accents to completely cover fill it in.  Next I attach a multi loop bow to the base of the wreath using large glue dots.  Once the bow is secure I begin tucking leaves in around the bow and in between the branches and attach them using glossy accents.  The leaves cover most of the branches so I left a section of it open to show them as I think they add so much interest to the arrangement.  I added a touch of shimmer to the leaves using a sparkle pen.  You can check out my Handmade Twiggy Wreath Tutorial if you would like to see a larger version of this wreath.  The tutorial shows using the whole wide tree branch but the concept is the same.  You can see my Multi Loop Bow video if you would like to see how I tied my bow. 

Come see how I made this bright and colorful die cut fall leaf wreath card.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut fall leaf wreath card.  I had lots of fun making it and I love how it pops against the all white background.

Beach Scene Card With Die Cuts for Dare To Get Dirty Day 1

Dare To Get Dirty Day 1

I have a fun beach scene card with die cuts to share with you today made for day one of the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week long challenge event. This event is a special thank you to all of the fan club members who support the site all year long. Have you had a desire to be on the Dirty Dozen design team? This special week of challenges will give you tons of opportunity to be inspired and to show off your wonderful and creative projects right along with the current Dirty Dozen team as well as the alumni team members.  Are you a member of the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club? If not go here to check out all the benefits of being a member. If you are a member hop right on over the special challenge forum here.

Come see my sparkling beach scene card with die cuts, embossing paste and glitter.

The Frame, Sand, Water and Sky

I started by cutting the frame, two hand cut sand layers and the water and sky scene layer.  I applied Antique Linen and Tumbled Glass inks to the frame with ink blending tools and cloud templates.  I wanted the scene to carry seamlessly from the frame to the background scene. I applied the tan ink to both hand cut sand sections.  Next I used a background stamp and Vintage Photo ink to stamp a bit of texture to the hand cut sand pieces as well as the frame.

I applied tan ink to the scene base to create the beach, masked off the water line and applied the blue ink to create the ocean.  I removed the mask and created the cloudy sky using blue ink and a cloud template.  I finished the scene base by dabbing white embossing paste to the water using my finger to create sea foam and then applied clear glitter to add shimmer to the scene.

I applied double stick tape to the lower back portion of the frame and attached one of the hand cut sand sections.  Next I applied mounting tape to the back of the frame, attached it to the scene base and then attached the whole frame scene to the white card base.

Come see my relaxing beach scene card with die cuts, embossing paste and glitter.

Assembling the Beach Scene Card with Die Cuts

I cut the chairs, birds, umbrella, grass, flip flops and bucket.  I cut the umbrella two times, once in blue and again in yellow to create the colorful layers.  I repeated the same colors for the bucket, flip flops and bucket.  The chairs and birds were cut using white.  I applied Pumice Stone ink to the birds using a mini applicator.  The grass was cut using green cardstock.  

The front sand sections was attached to the frame using thin strips of mounting tape.  The chairs and umbrella were attached in behind the sand using pieces of mounting tape.  I secured the grass sections in around the chairs and attached with glossy accents. The birds were attached in the sky using pieces of mounting tape.  The flip flops were attached with glossy accents and the bucket was tucked in behind the sand and attached with mounting tape.  I cut a few strips of blue cardstock, attached it to a piece of yellow cardstock, frayed the edges to create the appearance of a towel and then attached it over the arm of the Adirondack chair with glossy accents and mounting tape.

Come see my sparkling and relaxing beach scene card with die cuts, embossing paste and glitter.

I had so much fun making my beach scene card with die cuts.  I hope you have been inspired to get out your paper, inks and dies and come join the fun over at Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week.

Die Cut Bird, Branches and Flowers

Good Thursday morning.  My die cut bird, branches and flowers project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge. You can see the sketch below.  Needless to say I miscalculated on the size of my decorative frame and went outside the lines of the layout but I love how it turned out anyway.  I used the Impression Obsession Square Frame for the square layer, filled the inner frame with Songbird Branch and Branches Corner and created the floral arrangement using Bunch of Blossoms and Foliage.

Come check out how I made this elegant die cut bird, branches and flowers card using Impression Obsession dies.

aa

The Birds and Branches

I began by cutting the Songbird Branch in green and then cut just the bird section again in white.  I colored the white birds using two light blue shades of Copic markers and then added a little bit of darker blue shading using a mini applicator and Broken China ink.  I cut the colored birds off the piece of branch and attached them over the birds on the green branch using glossy accents.  I cut the small branches off the Branches Corner and used them to fill in around the birds and attached with glossy accents.

The Frame

I cut the frame and attached small pieces of double stick tape on two of the corners on the back of the frame.  I attached the bird branch to the frame, applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and small pieces to the back of the birds and attached the whole thing to the card base.

 

Come check out how I made this lovely die cut bird, branches and flowers card using Impression Obsession dies.

The Flowers and Foliage

I cut the flowers using white cardstock and colored them with the light blue Copic markers and lightly touched the centers with a mini applicator and Broken China ink.  I wanted the flowers to match the birds but not be as deep blue.  I cut apart the foliage sections and attached them to the corner of the frame using glossy accents.  I formed the flowers using my stylus and molding pad and then attached them to the foliage using glossy accents.  I finished by attaching pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flowers using glossy accents.

Come check out how I made this pretty die cut bird, branches and flowers card using Impression Obsession dies.

Die Cut Bird, Branches and Flowers

I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut bird, branches and flowers card. I always have fun pulling out my dies and coming up with different ways to use them together to create interesting projects.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Snowy Tree Scene Card

Good Wednesday morning.  I have a clean and simple snowy tree scene card to share with you today using the new Impression Obsession Wintery Day scene stamp.  I added a bit of dimension to the scene by framing it using the All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2 and embellishing it with a Small Poinsettia, Pine Pair and Cardinals.

Come see how I made this snowy tree scene card embellished with a poinsettia and pine branches.

The Snowy Tree Scene and Frame

I secured the Wintery Day stamp and cardstock in place in my MISTI, applied Peeled Paint ink to the image and stamped.  The first image was a little light so I applied more ink and stamped it a second time.  Using a MISTI for this type of stamping is such a help.  I applied mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base.

Come see how I made this clean and simple snowy tree scene card embellished with a poinsettia and pine branches.

Embellishing the Snowy Tree Scene Card

I felt like the right top corner of the scene looked too blank and wanted to add something of interest to the corner.  It was a perfect place for a small stamped sentiment but I decided to use a poinsettia and pine to add dimension.  I cut one full section of the poinsettia in red and then cut the largest flower in green.  I formed the petals using my stylus and molding pad and then attached the layers together using glossy accents.  I applied the large green poinsettia to the bottom of the flower to appear as a green foliage base.

I cut three sections of pine, trimmed them to shorten and attached them to the corner of the frame using glossy accents to create a base for the poinsettia.  Next, I applied glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attached it to the pine.  I formed 3 1/8″ punched circles with my smallest tipped stylus and molding pad and attached them in the center of the poinsettia using glossy accents.

I thought the scene needed another touch of red so I attached the two flying cardinals using small pieces of mounting tape for the finishing touch.

Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have enjoyed seeing my snowy tree scene card using the new Wintery Day stamp.
