Christmas in July Poinsettia

Today I’m celebrating “Christmas in July” with my Christmas in July poinsettia card.  It’s always fun to create a few Christmas projects during the summer to rev up my holiday inspiration.  I wish I had a dollar for every die cut poinsettia card I have made over the years.  I could have added quite a bit of money to my retirement account.  LOL!   The holly and pine are the perfect foliage embellishments for this classic poinsettia card and I really like the addition of the embossed pattern on the background.  It adds interest to the card without distracting from the arrangement.  You can check out my Poinsettia Tutorial if you would like to see step by step photos of how I form and assemble my flower.  The tutorial uses different dies but the concept is the same.

Come see how I made this Christmas in July Poinsettia.

The Embossed Card Base and Frame

  • Cut the card base using white cardstock.
  • Emboss the white layer and attach it to the red card base. using double stick tape.
  • Cut the frame using red cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips to the back of the frame and attach it to the white embossed layer.

Come see how I made this pretty Christmas in July Poinsettia.

The Poinsettia

  • Cut the poinsettia sections using red cardstock.
  • Place all the sections face down on the molding pad and roll over the petals using the large tipped stylus.
  • Lay the sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center to pull all the petals up.
  • Use glossy accents to attach all the sections together to create the flower.
  • Cut the tiny flower centers using yellow cardstock, form with the tiny tipped stylus and molding pad and attach to the center of the flower using glossy accents.
  • Apply a generous amount of glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attach to the card base.

The Holly and Pine

  • Cut the holly leaves using green cardstock and the berries using red cardstock.
  • Attach the red berries to the holly branches using glossy accents.
  • Place the holly leaves on the molding pad and gently create veins using the detail tool.
  • Cut the pine branches using green cardstock.
  • Tuck the holly and pine branches under the poinsettia and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish by applying red stickles to the holly berries and sparkle to the flower centers using a shimmer pen.

Come see how I made this elegant Christmas in July poinsettia,

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my classic Christmas in July poinsettia card.  It really was a fast and easy card to make and yet it makes quite an elegant impression.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you’ll take some time out to create a few Christmas in July projects of your own.  Check out this Kittie Kraft Poinsettia link on Pinterest if you would like to see more of the poinsettia cards I have made over the years.

Die Cut Decorative Frame and Flowers

Today I’m sharing a die cut decorative frame and flowers card using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps and one of my favorite color combinations.  I used the Floral Frame, 5109D Mixable Flower Stack and Tiny Flower Buds.  I think the purple and green flowers against the all white frame and background is so elegant.  The white frame adds dimension and interest to the card but still allows the flowers and leaves be the main focal point.  I like off setting flowers and foliage on a card like this and leaving some open space.  I thought the clear sequins were perfect in the space and added another touch of elegance.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this die cut decorative frame and flowers card.

The Decorative Frame

  • Cut the frame using white cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame.
  • Attach the frame to the card base.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this elegant die cut decorative frame and flowers card.

The Flowers and Leaves

  • Cut the flowers using purple cardstock.
  • Place the flowers face up on the molding pad and form the petals up using the large and medium ball stylus.
  • Attach the flower layers together using glossy accents.
  • Cut the tiny flower buds using white cardstock, form them with the tiny tipped stylus and attach them to the flower centers using glossy accents.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the leaf branches.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of each leaf to hold the leaf centers in place.
  • Attach the leaf branches to the card base using glossy accents.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the flowers to the card base and branches.
  • Finish by attaching the clear sequins to the card base using glossy accents.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this lovely die cut decorative frame and flowers card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut decorative frame and flowers card.  This clean and simple white card base with the pops of color in the flowers and leaves is one of my favorite style of floral card to make.  You can find lots more decorative frame and flowers inspiration on the Pinterest page.  Thank you for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Flower Pots Garden Card

Today I’m sharing a flower pots garden card using several Rubbernecker dies that mimic the pretty garden themed designer paper background.  I used the Watering Can, Tall Buckets, Cart Accessories #1, Small Ivy, Tiny Flower Buds, Picket Fence, Deckle Hills, Flower Stems and Borders #1. The background paper is from the Carta Bella Flower Market 6 x 6 paper pack. 

It is always fascinating and very irritating to me that my camera sometimes gets a mind of it’s own and refuses to photograph my card’s true colors.  Or maybe it’s that my naked eye doesn’t see the true colors when I’m putting my card together.  The vanilla cream cardstock that I used for the fence and top border seemed to be a perfect match to my eye but the camera decided it was much creamier than the background paper.  Sometimes you just can’t beat the camera and all the photo editing in the world will not fix the problem.    LOL! 

Come over to my blog to see how I made this flower pots garden card.

The Fence, Grass Layer and Decorative Border

  • Cut the picket fence and border using cream cardstock.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the grass layer.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the fence and border and attach them to the card base.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the grass layer and attach to the card base,

Come over to my blog to see how I made this colorful flower pots garden card.

The Flower Pots, Watering Can and Bucket

  • Cut the flower pots using yellow cardstock.
  • Use gray cardstock to cut the bucket and watering can.
  • Apply Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink to the flower pots using mini applicators. 
  • Apply Pumice Stone ink to the watering can and bucket using a mini applicator.

The Flowers and Foliage

  • Cut the tiny flower buds using pink, yellow and red cardstock.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Cut the small ivy and flower stems using green cardstock.
  • Arrange small ivy along the grass layer and attach using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the foliage and attach to the back of the bucket, watering can and flower pots.
  • Create triple flowers by attaching the flowers to scrap cardstock with glossy accents, allow the glue to dry and then trim around the flowers using snips.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the tiny flowers and triple flowers to the foliage.

Finish the Flower Pots Garden

  • Create two stacks of three flower pots and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Attach both stacks of pots to the card base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Tuck the watering can, bucket and flower pots in behind the grass layer and attach with mounting tape.
  • Finish the card by cutting a set of red garden boots, apply tiny white dots using a gel pen to match the boots in the background paper and attach to the grass layer using mounting tape.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this pretty flower pots garden card.

I never seem to tire of creating projects like this flower pots garden card.  I have been having lots of fun using decorative designer paper backgrounds for my cards lately.  The paper I used today is quite busy and I added lots of busy touches with my scene but I think it all goes together well.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Die Cut Rose Tutorial

Good Saturday morning.  Today I’m sharing a die cut rose tutorial with several step by step photos.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps 5112D Mixable Flower Stack for the rose and the 5175-05D Flowers #5 for the leaves.  The decorative background layers were made using the 5207D Rectangle Combo #3 and the 5026D Circle Lattice.  I used my deckle scissors to trim around the edges of the petals and leaves to create a more realistic looking rose and foliage.

Come over to my blog to see my step by step die cut rose tutorial.

The Decorative Background Layer

  • Cut the rectangle frames and circle lattice using white cardstock.
  • Turn the frames face down and attach all the sections together using double stick tape.
  • Attach the circle lattice section to the back of the frames using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame layers and attach it to the card base.

Die Cut Rose and Leaves

  • Trim around the petals of all the flowers sections using deckle scissors.

1

2

  • Place each flower section face up on the molding pad and use a large tipped stylus to form and round out the shape.

3

  • Use needle nose pliers to roll each petal backwards.

4

  • Place the flower face up on the molding pad and push down hard with the stylus to roll the petals up.

5

  • Apply a generous amount of glue to the inside layers of petals.

6

  • Squeeze and hold the petals together to form the inner rose center.

7

  • Repeat the steps above with all the flower layers.  Each layer will be formed a little more loosely than the layer before it and attached together to create the body of the rose.  I used 8 layers all together.  2 extra  small, 2 small, 2 mid size and 2 large.

8

  • Attach all the layers together and stagger the petals to create a more natural looking rose.

9

  • Apply score lines to the leaves using the leaf tool from the garden tool kit.  You could use the leaf pad but I like using the molding pad to create deeper score lines for shaping.10
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the rose and attach it to the card base.
  • Tuck the leaves under the rose and attach in place using glossy accents.

Come over to my blog to see my step by step photo die cut rose tutorial.

I wanted to show you this die cut rose tutorial with the trimmed petals and leaves to demonstrate that you can change the appearance of die cut images to create something different.  Did that make sense?  LOL!  I always like to find as many ways as possible to use my dies to get the biggest bang for my buck.  I didn’t show all the steps to create my rose as it would have been way too many photos for the post.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great weekend.

Clean and Simple Flower Pots Card

Today I’m sharing a clean and simple flower pots card made using the new Rubbernecker Stamps Cart Accessories #1 paired with the Flower Stems, Leaf Group, Tiny Flower Buds and framed background using the Window with Double Stitch.  I love creating cards with lots and lots of dimension and details but sometimes it’s fun to step outside of the box and create something totally clean and simple.  I wanted to use the tiny flower pots and watering can as the main focal point of the card and allow them to shine against the all white background.  The stitched window frame and panels create an element of interest without distracting from the main images.

Come see how I made this clean and simple flower pots card.

The White Window Frame Background

  • Cut the window frame using white cardstock.
  • Turn the window frame and panels face down and apply double stick tape around the panels to secure them in place.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the window frame and attach to the red card base layer.

Come see how I made this pretty clean and simple flower pots card.

The Flower Pots and Watering Can

  • Cut the flower pots using yellow cardstock and the watering can using gray cardstock.
  • Apply Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge ink to the pots and watering can using a mini applicator.
  • Cut flower stems and leaf group using green cardstock, trim the foliage and attach to the back of the pots using glossy accents.
  • Use red and bright pink cardstock to cut the tiny flower buds and form them using a tiny tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Create the flower clusters by applying glossy accents on scrap red and pink cardstock and attaching three flowers together. 
  • Allow the flower clusters glue to dry and then cut them out using small scissors.
  • Attach the flower clusters and single flowers to the foliage using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the flower pots and attach them to the white card base.
  • Attach a flower stem to the fourth window using glossy accents and then attach the watering can using mounting tape. Finish by attaching the hand shovel to the can using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this lovely clean and simple flower pots card.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my clean and simple flower pots card.  I would be the perfect card for someone who loves to work in their flower garden.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
