Circle Framed Die Cut Butterfly

Good Monday morning.  My project today is a circle framed die cut butterfly card made using the Rubbernecker Nested Circle X Stitch set, 2 Part Butterfly # 1, Flower Buds, Flower Stems and French Script Background.  I’ve had the French Script Background and Nested Circle X Stitch for a while but this is my first time using them.  I thought the soft blue script looked pretty as a background for the decorative butterfly and the X stitch pattern on the frame adds another element of interest.

Come see how I made this pretty circle framed die cut butterfly card with a French script background and tiny flowers.

The French Script Background and Frame

I secured the large background stamp and cardstock in my MISTI, applied the Baby Blue ink to the stamp and stamped the image.  Next, I cut the stamped image layer to 4.25″ ti fit on the 4.50″ blue layer.  I applied mounting tape to the back of the blue layer and attached it to the card base.

The frame was cut using the two largest frames in the set.  I used my magnetic platform to secure the dies in place on the cardstock and cut.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the script layer.

Come see how I made this elegant circle framed die cut butterfly card with tiny flowers and a French script background.

The Butterfly and Flowers

I cut the butterfly sections and attached them together using glossy accents.  I formed the flower buds using my stylus and molding pad.  Next, I attached pieces of the flower stems to the base of the butterfly using glossy accents.  I attached several flowers to the stems in a cluster using glossy accents.  The butterfly was attached to the card base using a piece of mounting tape. 

Come see how I made this elegant circle framed die cut butterfly card with a French script background and tiny flowers.

I think the circle framed die cut butterfly card is so pretty and elegant.  Thank you for coming by and I hope you enjoyed seeing my project and that you have a great day.

Snowy Die Cut Bunny Scene

Good Sunday morning.  I have a sparkly snowy die cut bunny scene to share with you today made using dies and stamps by Rubbernecker Stamps. I thought it would be fun to use the largest die from the Nested Banner Stitch Set to create a small scene. The trees were stamped with evergreen trees from the Moose Set. I used one bunny from the Bunnies set and three birds from the the Small Birds set.  I embellished the neck of the bunny using one small leaf section from the Leaf Buds set.  The designer paper layer was cut using the largest dies from the Nested Rectangle Small Stitch set.

Come see how I made this chilly snowy die cut bunny scene using dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.

The Banner Trees and Snow Layers

I cut the banner die once and cut the bottom half of the banner a second time using white cardstock.  I stamped the trees across the banner several times using both the small and large tree and Peeled Paint ink.  Next I applied ink to a tree die, stamped it off once on scratch paper and then lightly stamped a second tree layer.  I repeated this step all the way across the scene to create the feel that the trees are far in the distance.  I used my deckle scissors to cut snow layers from the bottom half of the second banner.  I attached the back snow layer directly to the banner using ATG adhesive.  The front snow layer was attached using strips of mounting tape.  I attached the banner to the card base using mounting tape.

Come see how I made this fun snowy die cut bunny scene using dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.

Coloring the Bunny

The bunny was cut using white cardstock.  I used Antique Linen ink and a mini applicator to apply a light layer of ink all over the bunny.  Next, I applied Vintage Photo ink to the ears, back and feet portion of the bunny.  Check out my Coloring Animal Die Cuts tutorial if you would like to see step by step photos of how I colored the bunny.

Assembling the Snowy Die Cut Bunny Scene

I wanted to embellish the next of the bunny with pine and red sparkly berries.  I took one section of the leaf buds and cut thin slices in each leaf using my snips and attached it to the neck of the bunny with glossy accents.  Next, I attached 3 1/16″ punched red circles to the foliage using glossy accents and added sparkle to them using red Stickles.  I tucked the bunny in behind the snow layer and attached with a piece of mounting tape.  Since the bunny appears to be looking up I attached three birds in the sky using small pieces of mounting tape to make them all  look like they are interacting with each other.  I felt the scene could use one more element of interest so I applied white embossing paste and clear glitter to the snow layers. 

Come see how I made this sparkly snowy die cut bunny scene using dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.

Thank you for coming by today.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing my snowy die cut bunny scene card.

Die Cut Lattice and Butterfly Card for DTGD Day 4

My project today is a die cut lattice and butterfly card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 4 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 clean and simple die cut lattice and butterfly card.

The Stenciled Pattern

I don’t often use a stenciling technique but thought it would be fun to see if I could use the lattice die cut to create a nice pattern.  I cut the Circle Lattice Die using a 4.5″ piece of scratch cardstock. The die is only two inches wide and I wanted to double the size so I line the die up along the first cut line and cut a second time to create a 4″ square die cut.  I placed the die cut lattice over a piece of white cardstock to use as a stencil and secured in place using painter’s tape.  Next, I used a stylus tool and foam tip along with Tumbled Glass ink to create the lattice pattern on the cardstock layer.  Once I was finished I heat set the ink with my heat gun. 

The Frame

I cut a Square Combo frame using the patterned cardstock and cut a second frame using white cardstock.  I turned the white and patterned frame layers face down and attached them all together using double stick tape.  Next, I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the 5″ square card base.

Come see how I made this simple die cut lattice and butterfly card.

The Butterfly and Flowers

I cut both sections of the 2 Part Butterfly #2 using white cardstock.  Next, I applied Tumbled Glass to the base butterfly using the stylus and foam tip.  I applied the blue ink to a scratch piece of white cardstock and cut tiny flowers using the Flower Buds die.  I cut several pieces of Flower Stems to use along with the flowers to embellish the butterfly.  I used my molding pad and stylus to form the tiny flowers.

Die Cut Lattice and Butterfly Card

I attached the white decorative layer of the butterfly to the blue base using glossy accents.  Next, I attached white flower stems to the butterfly using glossy accents to create a base for the flowers.  I used glossy accents to attach flowers and then attached the whole embellished butterfly to the lattice frame using a piece of mounting tape.  I finished by applying small dots of glossy accents to the flower centers and attaching white pre made Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Come see how I made this bright die cut lattice and butterfly card.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut lattice and butterfly card.  It was lots of fun creating my lattice stenciled frame to match the lattice die cut and I have been inspired with lots of ideas for using some of my other dies to create stencils for future projects.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Paper Flowers Card with Embossed Background For Dare To Get Dirty Day 2

Good Sunday morning.  My paper flowers card with embossed background was made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 2 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 beautiful paper flowers card with embossed background.

Belleek Inspired Background and Frame

Years ago I was introduced to the Belleek Inspired Technique in one of the Technique Lovers Challenges on Splitcoaststampers.  This technique was based on the beautiful Belleek Traditional Irish Gifts and Home Decor.  I prepared an decorative embossing folder by applying in with a brayer to the top inside of the folder.  Next, I inserted the white cardstock in the folder and ran it through my Big Shot.  I attached the embossed layer to the card base using thin strips of mounting tape.  You can see step by step pictures of the Belleek Inspired Technique tutorial.

I cut the frames using Rubbernecker Rectangle Combo #2 die and attached the three sections together on the back using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape around the back of the frame and attached it to the embossed layer.

Come see how I made this elegant paper flowers card with embossed background.

The Flowers and Foliage

I cut several sets of the Mixable Flower Stack die using white cardstock.  Next I placed Spun Sugar reinker in the lid of my ink pad to use as a palette.  I I used a Color Wash technique to color the flowers.  I applied a mixture of water and reinker in my watercolor brush and painted the flowers.  Next, I dipped the brush into a stronger section of reinker and touched the brush into the center of the flower and allowed it to run out on the wet petals.  I heat dried each flower section with my heat gun. I used this method so the flowers would perfectly match the pink on the embossed background.  You can see step by step photos of this technique in my Color Wash Flowers tutorial

I formed each flower section using my stylus and molding pad.  I laid the sections face down on the pad, formed the leaves using a rolling movement with the large stylus on each petal.  I turned the flower sections face up and pushed down on the center using a smaller tipped stylus.  I attached all the different sized flower sections together using glossy accents to form the completed flowers.

I cut several sections of the Leaf Group and Small Leaf Group to use as the base for my flowers.  Next, I gently formed the larger leaves with my fingers to add a more natural appearance.

Come see how I made this elegant paper flowers card with embossed background.

Assembling the Paper Flowers Card with Embossed Background

I started creating a foliage base for the flowers by attaching some of the larger sections of leaves to the frame corner using glossy accents.  Next I attached the flowers using glossy accents.  I cut smaller sections of foliage and tucked under and around the flowers to fill in and attached with glossy accents.  I finished by forming two of the round circles from the flower die, formed them lightly with a stylus and attached to the flower centers with a small piece of mounting tape.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my paper flowers card with embossed background.  Please check out the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty event if you would like to see lots of wonderful projects.

Old Truck With Flowers Scene

Good Monday morning.  I have a rusty old truck with flowers scene card to share with you today.   I’ve loved this Old Truck by Rubbernecker and have made lots of scene cards with it over the years.  I thought it would be fun to create a summery floral scene and pair it with the Tree Panel, Tiny Flower Buds, Flower Stems, Grass and Small Birds.  The frame was made using the Rectangle Stitched OPC die.

Come see how I made this rusty old truck with flowers scene.

The Truck

I secured icy Mint cardstock and the truck stamp in my MISTI, applied black versafine ink and stamped the image twice.  I applied clear embossing powder and heated to set the ink.  I used a mini applicator to apply touches of Rusty Hinge ink to areas on the truck to create an old appearance.  I used a craft knife to cut out the windows and then cut out the trucks.  I cut the main portion of the truck away from the tires and attached it using rolled up glue dots over the wheel sections from the second truck that I stamped.

The Truck Bed Flowers

I cut several flower stems and a red and white tiny flower buds.  I formed all the flowers using the smallest stylus tip and molding and then attached several flowers to each of the stems using glossy accents.  I cut a slit in the truck bed using my craft knife and tucked several of the flower filled stems in between the truck bed slit and attached them using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this banged up old truck with flowers scene.

The Frame, Tree and Grass

I cut the frames and attached them together on the back using double stick tape.  I cut the tree panel, cut it apart and colored the branches using a brown Copic marker.  I attached one section of the tree panel to the top back of the frame along with a grass section on the bottom of the frame.  I attached mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the blue sky layer.

Come see how I made this pretty old truck with flowers scene.

Completing the Old Truck with Flowers Scene

I tucked the truck in behind the grass and attached with mounting tape.  I cut the remaining portion of the tree panel branches apart and attached them in behind the grass with glossy accents.  I added flowers to the branches to fill in the scene.  The birds were added for the finishing touch.

I hope you have been inspired to get out your stamps and dies to create your won old truck with flowers scene project.  I always have so much fun creating fun scenes like this.

Die Cut Hydrangea Thank You Card

Good Sunday morning.  I have a pretty die cut hydrangea thank you card to share with you today.  My flower was hand made using Rubbernecker Flower Buds and three layered circles.  I used the Leaf set for the leaves and I hand cut the stem using my deckle scissors. The sentiment is from the Best Friends set.  Do you love hydrangea flowers but don’t have a hydrangea die set.  You can check out my Hydrangea Tutorial to see how I use punched or die cut tiny flowers to make my flowers.

Come see how I made my pretty die cut hydrangea thank you card.

Making the Hydrangea

I started creating the base for my hydrangea by cutting out a 1 1/4″, 3/4″and 1/2″ circles.  I attached the three circles to each other using pieces of mounting tape. I applied Faded Jeans ink to a piece of Icy Mint cardstock to create a bit of variegated blue although it doesn’t show well in the photo. I cut two sections of the Flower Bud and formed them using my small tipped stylus and molding pad.  I started assembling the flower by applying glossy accents to the top layer and attaching flowers all around the circle to cover.  Next, I covered the whole second and third layers with the flowers and attached with glossy accents.  Once all three layers were totally covered I added a few extra flowers in a few spots on the outer layer to make the circle look a little uneven and more natural.

The Leaves

I cut two leaves and added veins to each using the leaf tool and leaf pad from the Garden Tool Kit.  Once the veins were added I used my fingers to gently bend the leaves to add  natural dimension. 

Come see how I made my clean and simple die cut hydrangea thank you card.

Assembling the Die Cut Hydrangea Thank You Card

I cut a piece of designer paper to the card base using double stick tape.  The sentiment layer and stamp  was secured in my MISTI and I used Peeled Paint ink to stamp the sentiment. I attached the sentiment was attached to the card base using strips of mounting tape.  The stem, leaves and hydrangea were attached to the sentiment layer using glossy accents.

Come see how I made my pretty clean and simple die cut hydrangea thank you card.
