Snow Globe Cabin Scene

Good Tuesday afternoon.  I have a Christmas snow globe cabin scene card to share with you today made using Rubbernecker’s new Cabin Set and Snow Globe Set paired with Nested Deckle Rectangle, Rectangle Combo, Greenery, Deckle Hills and the lights from the Globe Tree Set.

Come see how I made this snow globe cabin scene.

The Cabin

  • Cut the cabin using Kraft cardstock and the roof section using white cardstock.
  • Color the cabin portion using a light walnut Copic marker.
  • Cut the Christmas lights using red, yellow, green and blue cardstock.
  • Attach 1/8″ double stick tape to the back side of the roof border and attach the Christmas lights.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the roof and attach it to the cabin.
  • Apply red, blue, green and yellow Stickles to the Christmas lights and set aside to dry.

Come see how I made this pretty snow globe cabin scene.

The Snow Globe Scene

  • Cut the circle base for the snow globe using light blue cardstock.
  • Cut the snow globe base using Kraft cardstock.
  • Cut the snow layers using white cardstock.
  • Attach the snow layers to the base using double stick tape.
  • Cut the evergreen trees using green cardstock.
  • Apply white gesso to the trees and windows using a tiny brush.
  • Tuck the cabin and trees in behind the snow layers and attach with mounting tape.

The Deckle Layer

  • Cut the deckle layer using Kraft cardstock.
  • Apply brown ink directly to the deckle layer using the ink pad.  Lightly swipe the pad straight up and down to create the appearance of woodgrain.
  • Cut the frame section using red cardstock and attach it to the deckle layer using double stick tape.
  • Attach the deckle layer to the red card base using double stick tape. 
  • Attach the snow globe cabin scene to the deckle layer using double stick tape.
  • Attach the globe base to the deckle layer at the bottom of the globe and attach using mounting tape.
  • Apply small dots of glossy accents to the sky area of the globe scene and attach the large fluffy snowflakes.
  • Cut the greenery and attach a few sprigs to the snow globe base using glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching a gingham multi loop bow using glue dots.

Come see how I made this Christmas snow globe cabin scene.

I had lots of fun making this snow globe cabin scene card.  I love the Christmas lights along the roof and wish the sparkle on them showed up as well in the photo as it does in person.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Gingerbread House Scene Card

Good Sunday morning.  My project today is a gingerbread house scene card made using brand new dies just released by Rubbernecker Stamps. I used the new Gingerbread House Set, Nested Deckle Rectangle and Globe Tree.  The gingerbread set has lots of fun parts and pieces to dress up the house for Christmas but it can also be dressed down to be used as a house for any season.  I  think the deckle layer background is the perfect to highlight the house and trees.

Come see how I made this gingerbread house scene card.

The Gingerbread House

  • Cut the house, chimney and front door using Kraft cardstock.
  • Cut the roof sections, windows, chimney snow topper and door using white cardstock. 
  • Cut the gumdrops using red, green, yellow and purple cardstock.
  • Cut the shutters using red cardstock and the wreaths using green cardstock.
  • Attach the gumdrops to the roof base and attach the roof sections to the roof of the house using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the window and door sections and attach to the house.
  • Attach the shutters and wreath sections to the house using glossy accents.
  • Attach gumdrops to the bottom of the house using glossy accents.
  • Attach the chimney to the house using glossy accents

Come see how I made this festive gingerbread house scene card.

The Deckle Layer and Trees

  • Cut the deckle layer and attach it to the red card base using mounting tape.
  • Cut a second deckle layer and cut it a second time across the lower edge to create the snow layer.
  • Attach the snow layer to the deckle base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Cut three trees and cut the ornaments using the same colored cardstock used for the gumdrops.
  • Attach the tallest tree to the card base using rolled glue dots and the second tallest tree using mounting tape.
  • Attach the house in behind the snow layer using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Cut the third tree off to shorten and attach the ornaments and star using glossy accents.
  • Attach the decorated tree to the card base using mounting tape.
  • Finish by applying Spectrum Noir clear overlay sparkle to the gumdrops and ornaments.

Come see how I made this fun gingerbread house scene card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my gingerbread house scene card.  I had a bit of trouble getting good pictures that showed up all the details against the darker color of the house.  The card is so much cuter than the pictures show.  Be sure and check out the other new dies just released by Rubbernecker.  Have a great day and thanks so much for coming by.

Die Cut Christmas Cabin

Good Thursday morning.  My project today is is a die cut Christmas cabin scene card.  I wanted to create a snowy nighttime scene with trees in the background and a rustic cabin as the main focal image. The cabin was made using a section of the Rubbernecker Stamps Rectangle Combo set and a piece of Kraft cardstock.  I have more detail below on how I made the cabin.  The background trees were stamped using one of the trees in the 3 Pine Tree set and I embellished the cabin using Tiny Leaves and the frame using the Holly set.  The snow layer was made using the Deckle Hills set.

Come see how I made this die cut Christmas cabin scene card.

The Tree and Night Sky Background

  • Secure white cardstock and tree stamp in the MISTI.
  • Apply Peeled Paint ink to the stamp and stamp the trees across the whole page.
  • Heat set the ink of the trees using a heat gun.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply Scattered Straw ink in a circle above the tree tops to create the moon.
  • Carefully apply Weathered Wood ink to the sky area using a stylus and foam tip to create the night sky. 
  • Apply a clear overlay to the moon to add a bit of sparkle.

Come see how I made this snowy die cut Christmas cabin scene card.

The Cabin

  • Cut a scalloped frame and trim off a corner section to act as the roof for the cabin.
  • Cut a small rectangle using Kraft cardstock.
  • Use the scalloped roof section as a template to mark the cut lines for the cabin roof and hand cut using scissors.
  • Cut the window openings on the cabin using a craft knife.
  • Cut thin strips of Kraft cardstock to use to create the window panes and attach them to the openings on the back of the cabin using double stick tape.
  • Use a wet baby wipe to apply Vintage Photo to the cabin and window panes to create a rustic color brown and heat set to dry.
  • Cut a small piece of vellum, apply Scattered Straw ink to the vellum using a wet baby wipe.
  • Heat set the ink on the vellum and apply a layer of sparkle using the clear overlay pen.
  • Attach the vellum layer to the back of the cabin using double stick tape.
  • Cut thin strips off the scrap piece of the leftover scallop frame.  Cut scalloped sections off the strip and attach to the window openings using glossy accents.
  • Cut tiny holly leaves using green cardstock, form them with the leaf tool and molding pad and attach two to each of the window snow layers.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the scalloped roof section and the holly leaves on the windows.
  • Attach the roof layer to the cabin using strips of mounting tape.
  • Apply red berry sections cut using the Holly Set  and attach one each to the holly on the windows.
  • You can see the basic instructions for cutting and assembling the cabin on my handmade birdhouse post and YouTube Die Cut Birdhouse video

The Frame and Snow Layers

  • Cut a snow layer using white cardstock and the Deckle Hills die.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the snow layer and allow to dry.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower back portion of the white scalloped frame and attach the snow layer.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the scene layer.
  • Attach a piece of blue cardstock to the back of the framed scene and attach it to the white card base using double stick tape.
  • Cut holly sections using green and red cardstock.
  • Form the holly leaves with your fingers.
  • Apply the red berries to the berry bases using glossy accents. I love using my jewel picker to pick up and place small pieces like the berries.
  • Attach the holly sections to the frame using glossy accents.
  • Attach a white multi loop bow to the frame.  
  • Apply red stickles to the holly berries.
  • Finish the scene by applying falling snow to the scene using a tiny brush and white gesso.

Come see how I made this winter die cut Christmas cabin scene card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut Christmas cabin scene.  I had lots of fun creating the homemade cabin and I think it’s the perfect masculine card.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Neighborhood Christmas Scene

Good Tuesday morning.  Today I’m stepping back ten years and sharing a Neighborhood Christmas Scene that is one of my all time favorites cards.  I love creating snow projects and have tried many techniques over the years in search of making the most realistic scenes possible.  This scene was made using Rubbernecker Stamps Neighborhood and I believe I used the top portion of the pine tree from the 3 Pine Trees set to create the background tree images.  Over the years I have seen crafting techniques and styles come and go but some remain timeless.

Come see how I made this neighborhood Christmas scene.

Masking and Creating the Scene

  • Die cut a circle using printer paper and a circle die to create a mask for the scene.
  • Apply mono adhesive reversible to the back of the circle mask and attach it to the scene base.
  • Stamp the neighborhood image on the scene base with black pigment ink and heat set.
  • Stamp the neighborhood image a second time on printer paper and out out the houses using snips.
  • Apply mono adhesive to the back of the houses and attach them over the image on the scene base to create a mask.
  • Stamp the trees using green ink and heat set.
  • Apply yellow ink with a dauber around the roof tops and trees to create the moon in the sky.
  • Apply blue ink with a dauber to create the night sky around the moon and heat set.
  • Remove the mask from the houses and watercolor them using blue and yellow reinker and heat set.

Create the Snow

  • Apply Liquid Applique to the ground area, lightly smooth it out with your finger to remove the dreaded blobs and bubbles and heat with a heat gun.
  • Apply white pigment ink to the Liquid Applique snow base, sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat with a heat gun.  This step helped create a whiter snow layer to match the white background.
  • Use a tiny brush to apply white pigment ink reinker to the roof tops to create the appearance of snow and icicles.
  • Sprinkle white embossing powder to the roof tops and heat with the heat gun.
  • Stamp the falling snow in the sky area and over the houses using white pigment ink and emboss with white embossing powder. 
  • Note:  It is very important to heat set the inks as you go along to avoid having the white embossing powder sticking in places that you don’t want.

Complete the Card

  • Apply a white layer to the blue card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Remove the circle frame mask from the scene base.
  • Layer the scene base on blue cardstock.
  • Attach a ribbon and a multi loop bow around the scene base and attach using glue dots.
  • Attach the scene layer to the card base using ATG adhesive.

I really love how the reverse masked frame highlighted the neighborhood Christmas scene on the white layer.  I hope you enjoyed taking a step back in time with me.  I linked items that come as close as possible to the supplies that I used ten years ago to create this project.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have  great day.

Woodland Deer Scene

Good Wednesday morning.  I have a woodland deer scene to share with you today made using Rubbernecker the Birch Forest, Tree In Oval, Deer Family, Tiny Flower Buds, Flower Stems, Grass Set and 3 Pine Tree Set.  I needed to take a little break from Christmas themed cards and turned to this summery scene with the bright yellow background and flowers  I love how the stamped trees in the background create depth and draws they eye back into the scene.

Come see how I made this woodland deer scene.

The Tree In Oval and Grass

  • Cut the Tree In Oval using Easter Grass cardstock.
  • Cut two sections of Grass using Easter Grass cardstock.
  • Use the Tree In oval as a template to draw cut lines on the grass to fit on the front of the scene frame.

The Scene Background

  • Stamp the tree several times on the background layer using Peeled Paint ink.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass ink to the sky area and around the trees.
  • Use the Tree in Oval as a template to draw an oval cutting line on the stamped tree layer.
  • Use snips to hand cut the oval to fit behind the frame.

Color the Deer and Birch Forest

  • Cut the birch forest and deer using white cardstock.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply light touches of Pumice Stone ink to the bark marks on the trees.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo to apply ink to the deer.
  • Apply white spots to the fawn using a white gel pen.
  • Check out my animal coloring tutorial if you would like to see how I colored the deer.
  • Use the Tree In Oval as a template to draw cut lines on the Birch Forest and trim it to fit behind the frame.

The Flowers and Flower Stems

  • Cut the Flower Stems using Easter Grass cardstock.
  • Cut the Tiny Flower Buds using Sour Lemon cardstock.
  • Place the Tiny Flower Buds face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of the flower with a tiny tipped stylus to form.

 

Come see how I made this pretty woodland deer scene.

Assemble The Scene

  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the Tree In Oval.
  • Attach the Birch Forest to the back of the frame.
  • Apply a second layer of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the scene layer.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the scene layer and attach it to the Sour Lemon card base.
  • Attach the back grass layer directly to the front of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the front grass section and attach it to the frame.
  • Tuck the deer in tree trunks and grass and attach using mounting tape.
  • Attach the flowers to the flower stems, tuck them in behind the grass sections and attach using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this summer woodland deer scene.

There is something so sweet about this woodland deer scene.  Making it brightened my day and was a nice break from Christmas themed cards.  Have you started making your holiday cards yet?  Do you already need a little break from them?  I hope this card inspired you to add a little bit of spring to a cold winter day.  It was 38 degrees when I woke up this morning and that is plenty cold for us here in Florida.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Winter Deer Scene Card

Good Sunday morning.  I have a masculine winter deer scene card to share with you today.  There is a funny story behind the making of this card.  Well…..it wasn’t so funny when Cody, my Bichon puppy got up on the chair at my desk and took the Wildlife Tag (see below) and chewed off the top portion of it.  I had to chase him several laps around the dining room table to capture it and almost needed the “jaws of life” to get it out of his clinched teeth. LOL!  At first I thought it was totally ruined but as I examined it more closely I decided the lower portion of the scene could be saved if I covered up the damage with a frame.  So I pulled out one of my favorite frame dies, Square Combo #1 and created a frame just the right size to allow the major portion of the scene to show and that covered up the teeth marks left on the sky portion of the scene.   The scene was made using the Wildlife Set, Pine Tree Forest, Tree in Oval, 3 Pine Trees, Deckle HillsGreenery and Small Birds.

Come see how I made this winter deer scene card.

You can find the original Die Cut Christmas Tags post along with a beautiful poinsettia tag here.

Come check out how I made this masculine die cut Christmas tag.

Doesn’t he look way too innocent to have pulled such a dirty trick.  Don’t be fooled.  He got up on my desk yesterday and took two die sets, chewed up the packaging  and slung the dies all over the room.  Note to self:  Keep the door shut or keep the chair pulled well away from the desk when unattended.

The Tree Background and Frame

  • Cut the background layer using white cardstock.
  • Secure the background layer in the MISTI and stamp the trees using Peeled Paint ink.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass to the sky area using an ink blending tool.
  • Cut the frame using red and green cardstock.
  • Cut the tree portion of the Tree in Oval using green cardstock.
  • Cut the Pine Tree Forest using green cardstock.
  • Cut two snow sections using Deckle Hills and white cardstock..
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the  frame and attach the front snow layer and large tree.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame, attach the second snow layer and attach the whole frame section to the card base.

The Buck, Birds and Greenery

  • Cut a set of greenery using green cardstock and use a tiny brush to apply white gesso to the tips and set aside to dry.
  • Cut the buck using white cardstock.
  • Color the buck using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink and mini applicators. Check out my coloring die cut animals tutorial if you would like to see how I apply the ink to the buck.
  • Cut a section of birds using red cardstock.
  • Cut three or four trees off the Pine Tree Forest and tuck it in behind the snow layer and attach with mounting tape.
  • Attach the buck in behind the first snow layer and attach to the base using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Attach pieces of white tipped greenery in behind the snow layer and around the buck and attach with glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching the birds using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this pretty winter deer scene card.

 I hope you enjoyed reading my “puppy tale”.  I have two puppies, Cody and Mickey and although I love them dearly there are times when I would like to take them out to play in the traffic.  LOL!
