Making beach scenes are so much fun and I love using a large focal image like the Rubbernecker Vintage Woody car stamp and die. I enjoyed using the Rubbernecker Beach Master to add a few scenic elements. It’s hard to believe I worked with Rubbernecker Stamps to create the images for the Kittie Kits Beach Master more than ten years ago. Time sure flies by when you are having paper crafting fun.
I masked off the water line for the scene background using a piece of painters tape. I used a stylus and foam tip to apply the sand with Antique Linen ink and Tumbled Glass ink for the water. I removed the mask and sponged on a few clouds in the background. I cut a second sand piece with my deckle scissors. I stamped a few sections of sea oats to the sand area and stamped several sections of the sand image to add some texture to the scene. I applied white embossing paste to the water by tapping it lightly on the paper with my finger. I applied clear glitter while it was still wet to create a touch of sparkle. I applied a light touch of Cosmic Glitter Glue to the front sand piece and sprinkled with the clear glitter. The front sand layer was attached to the scene with mounting tape and the scene was attached to the blue layer with ATG adhesive.
I colored the woody with Copic and Distress Markers. When I was finished I added a few touches of rust to areas on the car using a mini applicator and Rusty Hinge in. I then then cut out the whole car out but eliminated the wheels. I stamped a second Woody, colored the wheels and then attached the main car over top of the wheel section using mounting tape. I wanted to create a little dimension between the body of the car and wheels. I hand cut the little surf board and attached in the window with glue dots. The car was tucked in behind the sand dune and attached to the scene with mounting tape.
I always have so much fun creating beach scenes and it was especially fun to use my Kittie Kits again. I appreciate you coming by today and I hope you have been inspired to create a vintage car beach scene of your own.
I love making cards with a vintage truck snow scene using a truck as the main focus of the scene and a little cabin in the distance. I had a wonderful time using images from the Rubbernecker Kittie Kits sets. I used images from the Outdoor Master, Fall Master and Moose. Did you know that Rubbernecker made die sets that coordinate with the Kittie Kits. I’ll have them all linked below if you want to check them out.
I secured the stamps and white cardstock in my MISTI and stamped all the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used my heat gun to set the ink for coloring. The truck, cabin and fence sections were die cut and colored using using Distress Inks, a water brush and mini applicators. The white embossing paste was applied to the truck and cabin using a Sofft spatula. The background cardstock layer was secured in my MISTI and I stamped the evergreen trees all the way across the page to create the backdrop for the scene. I used an ink blending tool to apply the blue sky area over the trees. The scene layer was attached to the card base using ATG adhesive. Falling snow was added to the scene and images using a white gel pen.
I used deckle scissors to hand cut the snow layers. I like the uneven edge for the ground because it looks so much more natural. I used a Bendi Frame because it creates a soft dimensional curve to the frame. I used a die from the Matting Basics B set to cut the frame opening on a piece of 5 5/8″ x 4 3/8″ cardstock. The frame needed to be an extra 1/8″ in width to create the bend when attached to the base. The front snow layer was attached to the back of the frame using ATG adhesive. Thin strips of mounting tape were attached to the outer edge on both sides of the frame. I first removed the backing off the left side of the frame and carefully attached it to the card front. I removed the backing off the right side and carefully allowed the frame to bend as I attached to the edge of the card front. I hope you can see that the 1/8″ of width cased the frame to bend out in the frame center about 1/4″ to 1/2″.
The fence sections were attached on both sides of the card base using mounting tape. The cabin was tucked in behind the second snow layer and attached with mounting tape. The truck was gently curved with my fingers so it would sit correctly on the curve of the frame and attached with 1/2″ double stick tape.
It is so cold and snowy all over the country as a result I thought this would make a perfect masculine card for a winter birthday or thank you. Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you enjoyed my Vintage Truck Snow Scene.
ood Thursday morning. I have another nature inspired snowy scene card to share today using the Impression Obsession Tree Frame, All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2, Fir Tree, Small Fir Tree, Fir Sprigs and Cardinals. I absolutely love using white embossing paste for snow and applying clear glitter on it while it is still wet. It adds a special sparkly touch to the scene.
I cut the tree frame using tan woodgrain cardstock, applied white embossing paste using a Sofft spatula and then clear glitter and set aside to dry. The tree stamps and white cardstock were secured in place in my MISTI and stamped using Peeled Paint ink. I sponged Tumbled Glass ink in the sky area using an ink blending tool. I used the spatula to gently tap embossing paste to create snow on the green trees and then applied the clear glitter. I used my deckle scissors to cut the ground snow layer and then applied the embossing paste and glitter. I thought a few sprigs of fir would look pretty around the tree base so I covered a few of those with the embossing paste and glitter and set aside to dry along with all the other pieces.
I applied double stick tape to the back of the frame and attached the tree frame to it. I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frames and attached it to the scene layer. The frame scene was attached to the white card base using double stick tape. I tucked the sprigs of fir behind the frame and attached with glossy accents. I finished by adding the cardinals to the scene for a bright touch of color. This kind of snowy scene reminds me of my childhood growing up in West Virginia. We four girls loved sleigh rides and playing in the snow. What fond memories!
Thanks for coming by and I hope you are enjoying a wonderful day.

Good Sunday morning. When I make my holiday cards I have a few favorite themes that I repeat every year. I simply adore making scenes with deer. Sometimes the scenes are full of color with green foliage backgrounds and deer peeking out from behind tree branches. Sometimes all white images against an all white background with only touches of red and green. Today I created colorful deer with red birds against an all white background. I recreate these kind of deer scenes year after year because they make me so happy. I love making them so much. Today’s project was made using the Impression Obsession Square Tree Window, Deer Trio, Cardinals, Fir Sprigs and Wreath Builder.
I started by attaching the tree frame to the card using mounting tape. I hand cut a ground snow piece and attached it to the frame with mounting tape. The deer were cut using white cardstock and colored using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink and mini applicators. I attached a tiny holly leaves and tiny red berries on the neck of the fawn and applied tiny white spots with a white gel pen. The cardinals were cut with red and lightly touched with a black Copic marker on the beaks.
The deer and cardinals were attached to the scene with mounting tape. The fir sprigs were tucked in behind the ground snow and attached with glossy accents. I finished by adding a tiny touch of red stickles to the berries on the fawn’s neck but it doesn’t show well in the photos.
I did a file search for all the holiday deer cards I have made in the past and I posted several of my favorites. I had lots of fun looking back. I hope you don’t mind me sharing.
Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great Sunday. Today’s card size is: 5” square.
Good Friday morning. I have had the Avery Elle Warm Wishes Stamp Set and Warm Wishes Die Set for quite a while and have just gotten around to playing with them. The scene layer was made using the Penny Black Antique Frame set. I added a star embellishment to one of my trees using the Impression Obsession Sun and Moon set and a couple holly leaves using the Impression Obsession Wreath Builder.
I used Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper for the trees and house images. I secured the paper and stamps in my MISTI and stamped. I used a brush to pull the color out of the image lines and added color by watercoloring with a mix of reinkers and water. I cut the trees out using the die set but hand cut the house out. I painted the roof of the house white with white gesso. I sponged in the blue background on the frame layer and then applied falling snow in the sky area and on the trees and house using a white gel pen.
I attached the white frame layer to the green layer using ATG adhesive. I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the framed layer and attached to the card base. I cut the bottom portion of a second frame layer and then cut across using my deckle scissors to form the white ground snow. I attached it in place with strips of mounting tape. The house and trees were tucked in behind the snow layer and attached with glossy accents. I added a few holly leaves and 1/16” red berries to the ground area and to the front of the house. The red berries really don’t show well in the pictures but they add a little extra touch of color to all the green and brown. I finished by adding the gold star on the tallest tree in the scene.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Good Monday afternoon. My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple challenge to use a Zig Zag pattern of some kind on our project. I chose to create a clean and simple background using the Impression Obsession Chevron Adapt-a-Background paired with the larger deer from the Deer and Doe set, pine sprigs from the Wreath Builder set and the star from the Bare Christmas Tree set. I love making simple scenes like this that allows a few simple images like the deer looking up to the star in the sky to tell the “story” without words.
I started by cutting the blue background layer and attached it to the card base with mounting tape. I cut a small portion of the die in white and attached it to the blue with mounting tape.
I applied the pine and red berries to the deer with gloss6 accents and then attached it to the scene using mounting tape on the body and glue dots on the feet. I applied red stickles to the berries to add a touch of sparkle and finished the scene with the small gold star in the sky.
Thank you for coming by today. I hope you have a great week.
