Z Fold Winter Scene Card

Good Saturday morning.  I had so much fun making Z fold cards over the last few weeks so I decided to pull out dies to make a Z fold winter scene card.  I used The Paper Cut Easel Card Base and Rubbernecker Stamps Tree in Oval, Pine Tree Forest, Cabin #1, Wildlife, Deckle Hills, Grass #2 and Small Birds. I love the cabin nestled back in the trees although it was a little hard to get a photo showing it well.

Come see how I made this Z fold winter scene card.

The Card Base

  • Cut three pieces of blue designer paper to fit on the three sections of the card base and attach using ATG adhesive.  Cut two 2.50″ x 4.00″ and one 5.25″ x 4.00″.
  • Cut several sections of the Deckle Hills using white cardstock to create the snow layers and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
    • Cut two Deckle Hills sections 2.50″ x approximately 2.00″ tall and one 5.25″ x approximately 2.00″ tall.
    • Cut four Deckle Hills sections 3.75″ wide x approximately 2.00″ tall.
    • Score the insert layers .50″ in from each end. and set aside.
    • Cut one Deckle Hills layer 11.00″ x approximately 2.00″.  I cut the cardstock piece at 11.00″ inches, placed the die and ran through the machine. I lined up the die where the first cut ended and ran it through a second time to create the full 11.00″ piece.
    • Score the 11.00″ Deckle Hills layer at 5.50 and 8.25″.
    • Apply ATG adhesive to the back portion of the 11.00″ layer and attach to the card base. Apply to the first 2.75″ on the back left and the last 2.75″ on the back right side.
  • Cut the grass sections using Kraft cardstock and apply Vintage Photo ink using a mini applicator.
  • Cut the small birds using red cardstock.
  • Cut the trees using green cardstock and color the tree trunks using a dark brown marker.

The Deer and Cabin

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Color the deer using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink and mini applicators.
  • Cut the cabin base using woodgrain cardstock and apply Vintage Photo using a mini applicator.
  • Cut the cabin roof using white cardstock and attach to the cabin using thin strips of mounting tape.
  • Attach the snow capped chimney to the cabin roof using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this snowy Z fold winter scene card.

Assemble the Z Fold Winter Scene

  • Tuck the trees in behind the snow layers and attach to the card base using rolled up glue dots.
  • Apply double stick tape to the edges of the insert layers.  Fold the left scored side toward the back of the card and the right scored side to the front of the card. Attach the layers to the box portion of the card.
  • Attach the cabin to the snow layer.  I cut a piece of cardstock to use as a brace and attached it to the bottom of the cabin using double stick tape. I applied double stick tape to the cabin brace section and attached it to the snow layer.
  • Attach a few of the trees to the snow insert layers and around the cabin using glossy accents.
  • Attach the brown grass sections to the snow insert layers using glossy accents.
  • Attach the deer to the scene base using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Finish by attaching a few red birds to the scene for an additional touch of color using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this lovely Z fold winter scene card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Z fold winter scene card.  It was lots of fun to make.  Check out this link if you would like to see the other Z fold cards I have made recently.  I appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a wonderful Easter holiday.

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.

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.

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.

Snowman Snowball Fight Scene

Good Wednesday morning.  I have a fun snowman snowball fight scene card to share with you today.  Well….you can only see one side of the fight as my snow man builds up his supply of snowballs to be ready for the oncoming attack.  LOL!  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Snowman die set and paired him with the Pine Tree Forest and Stitched Hills to match the stitching on the Square Combo Frame

Come see how I made this snowman snowball fight scene using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.

The Framed Scene

  • Cut the frame twice, once using white and once using the blue Rainbow Christmas paper.
  • Turn the frame sections face down and attach them together using double stick tape.
  • Cit the snow layers using white cardstock and the trees using green cardstock.
  • Attach the snow layers to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and snow layers.
  • Attach the pine trees to the mounting tape on the back of the frame and snow layers.
  • Apply touches of double stick tape where the trees are attached  on the back of the frame and attach the framed scene to the card base.

Come see how I made this fun snowman snowball fight scene using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.

Assemble The Snowman

  • Cut the snowman sections out using white cardstock and the accessories using the blue designer paper.
  • Cut the eyes and buttons using black cardstock and the nose using orange cardstock.
  • Attach the eyes, nose and mouth using glossy accents. 
  • Attach the hat, scarf and earmuffs using glossy accents and mounting tape.
  • Color the twig arms using a brown Copic marker and attach the mittens using glossy accents.
  • Punch out several 1/4″ circles and gently form them using the large round stylus and molding pad. 
  • Attach one snowball to the snowman body with mounting tape and then attach the twig arms and mittens using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the snowman in behind the snow layers and attach with mounting tape.
  • Finish the scene by attaching a few snowballs on the ground area using mounting tape.

Come see how I made this cute snowman snowball fight scene using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.

I think this is such a fun snowman snowball fight scene card.  I hope you are inspired to get your snowman dies out and create a fun scene of your own. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Die Cut Alpine Window Scene

Ellen Hutson Die Sale October 15 thru 17.

Good Monday morning. My project today is a die cut Alpine window scene made using the new Essentials by Ellen Alpine Window set.  I was intrigued with this set when it was released in September and couldn’t wait to play with it.  These cut-away windows can be used individually or combined to create fun dimensional scenes.  Check out Julie’s great video tutorial on the Ellen Hutson store site.

Come see how I made this snowy die cut alpine window scene.

The Window Layers

  • Cut the house layer using a 4″ square piece of white cardstock.
  • Cut the tree layer using white cardstock and cut off the trees.  (the white trees will be replaced with green trees during the assembly process)
  • Cut several trees using green cardstock.  I cut small squares of cardstock and laid directly over the trees portions of the die to cut out the individual trees.
  • Color the tree trunks with a brown Copic marker.
  • Color the house using a dark red Copic marker.
  • Cut an additional white house, cut off the roof section using scissors and attach to the red house using rolled up double stick tape.

Come see how I made this die cut alpine window scene.

Assemble the Die Cut Alpine Window Scene

  • Cut strips of mounting tape and attach to the back of the house window section.
  • Attach the tree layer to the back of the house window layer.
  • Create two rounded ground sections by cutting the negative leftover portion of the house layer.  (I could have used the mountain layers that comes with the set but I wanted to have lots of snowy blue sky showing in my window.)
  • Attach the rounded ground sections to the back of the tree layer using double stick tape.
  • Cut a piece of light blue cardstock to fit behind the window.
  • Apply falling snow to the blue layer using a small tipped brush and undiluted white watercolor paint.
  • Attach the blue sky layer to the back of the scene using strip of mounting tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the blue layer and attach to a 4.25″ square piece of dark red cardstock.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the scene layer and attach to the card base.
  • Attach the green trees in the scene using glossy accents and rolled up glue dots.
  • Apply undiluted white watercolor paint to the tree tips and under the windows on the house.
  • Finish by applying a small amount of yellow Stickles to the windows of the house.

Come see how I made this pretty die cut alpine window scene.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut Alpine window scene project.  I had so much fun making it and can’t wait to see how I can use it next.  I’m not sure about you but I’m going to get out my Ellen Hutson die wish list and go shopping for new dies while they are on sale.  Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a great week.

Impression Obsession Die Cut Snowball Fight

Good Thursday morning.  My Impression Obsession die cut snowball fight scene was made for the “Make it Sparkle” design team challenge. I sure hope you’ll come and play along with us.  You can see all the challenge details and prize information on the Impression Obsession Blog.

For my project I used the Snowball Fight silhouette die paired with the Three Trees, Pine Sprig Cluster, Cardinals and framed using the All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2.  I decided to create colored and clothed versions of the snowball fighters instead of using them as a silhouette. 

Come see how I made this Impression Obsession die cut snowball fight scene.

The Frame,Trees and Snow

  • Cut the rectangle frame using red cardstock.
  • Cut the three trees frame using Kraft cardstock.
  • Cut two snow layers using white cardstock. 
  • Use deckle scissors to cut the top edge of the snow layers to create a more natural  uneven snowy ground line.
  • Apply white gesso to the branches of the tree using a small tipped brush and set aside to dry.
  • Apply Cosmic glitter glue to the two snow sections, sprinkle with clear glitter and set aside to dry.

Assemble the Frame, Trees and Snow

  • Apply double stick tape to the lower back of the the frame and attach the front snow layer.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape tall the way around the back of the frame and attach the second snow layer.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the second snow layer and then attach the three trees to the back of the frame.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the blue card base.

Come see how I made this fun Impression Obsession die cut snowball fight scene.

Assemble the Snowball Fighters

  • Cut one set of the figures using white cardstock and cut a couple sets using blue cardstock and red cardstock to cut apart to mix and match.
  • Color the faces of the white figures using a Copic marker cut the heads off.
  • Cut off the hands and snowball portion of the white figures.
  • Cut the jacket and head portion off of both the red figure and blue figures.
  • Cut off a red pair of boots and a blue pair of boots.
  • Carefully cut out the face portion of the red and blue figures, apply glossy accents to the back of each head and jacket portion and attach them to the heads with the colored faces.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the red head and jacket section and attach it over the blue body.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the blue head and jacket section and attach it over the red body.
  • Apply glossy accents to the boots, attach the red to the blue pants and the blue to the red pants.
  • Cut off the red and blue hand sections of the figures that are holding the snowballs, replace with the white snowball sections and attach with glossy accents.
  • Apply glitter glue to the snowballs and sprinkle with clear glitter.
  • Create scarves with ribbon and attach around the neck of the figures using glue dots.
  • Piecing all the parts and pieces together was much easier to accomplish than writing out the steps.  LOL!  I hope it makes sense to you. 

The Pine Sprigs, Cardinals and Snowball Fighters

  • Cut a couple sections of the pine sprigs using green cardstock.
  • Tuck the sprigs in behind the snow layers and attach with glossy accents.
  • Apply touches of gesso to the tips of the sprigs using a brush.
  • Cut the cardinals using red cardstock, apply black to the beaks using a black marker and attach in the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Apply glue dots to the feet and leg portions of the figures and double pieces of mounting tape to the upper bodies and attach them in the scene.

Come see how I made this sparkly Impression Obsession die cut snowball fight scene.

I’d love to have a dollar for every snowball I threw at my sisters during our youth.  I can still feel my frozen feet after long hours of sleigh rides and snowball fights.  We had so much fun.

I hope you have been inspired by my Impression Obsession die cut snowball fight project. Thanks for coming by and I hope to see what you come up with for the challenge.
