Splatter Snowy Background

My project today is a splatter snowy background card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 6 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.

For this card I used the Tree in Oval, Deer Family, Deckle Hills, Small Birds and Greenery #1

Come see how I made this splatter snowy background.

Splatter Snowy Background

  • Place a piece of dark blue cardstock in the Splatter Cubby.
  • Apply a small amount of white Gesso paint to an old toothbrush.
  • Use your finger to flick the paint on the cardstock.  Continue the process until you are happy with the snowy coverage.
  • Allow the snow to dry and then attach the layer to the card base using double stick tape.

Come see how I made this pretty splatter snowy background.

The Die Cut Silhouette Scene

  • Cut all the images using white cardstock.
  • Apply mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame.
  • Cut the snow layer to fit behind the oval and attach to the lower portion of the frame.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the snow layer and then attach the whole frame to the blue card base.
  • Tuck the deer in behind the snow layer and attach to the card base using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Tuck the greenery in behind the frame and snow layer and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching one small bird to the sky area using a piece of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this easy splatter snowy background.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this clean and simple splatter snowy background card.  Creating the splatter background is so fast and easy and I love how it creates the appearance of a soft falling snow.  I think the all white images are so pretty against the dark blue.  The splatter snow would also be pretty done against a soft blue background for a day time scene.  I would recommend using more paint on the brush to create larger splatters so it would show up well against the lighter blue.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Christmas in July Z Fold Snowman Card

Today I’m celebrating “Christmas in July” with a fun Z Fold Snowman card made using several dies by Rubbernecker Stamps and the The Paper Cut Easel Card Base kit.  I used the Snowman, Pine Tree Forest, Tree in Oval, Deckle Hills, Wagon, Small Birds and Tiny Leaves to create this fun winter scene. 

Come over to my blog to see how I made this Z Fold snowman card.

The Card Base

  • Cut a piece of blue cardstock 11″ x 5.50″ .
  • 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. Attach the pieces to the card base using ATG adhesive.
    • 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″.  Note:  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 several Pine Tree Forest and two Tree Tree in Oval  sections using green cardstock.  Cut the large trees away from the oval to use in the back of the scene.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this fun Z Fold snowman card.

Assemble the Snowman and Wagon full of Snowman Parts

  • Cut the snowman parts using white, black, red, green, woodgrain and orange cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces to form the snowman using glossy accents.
  • Attach tiny holly leaves and red berries to the hats and scarf using glossy accents.
  • Cut the wagon using red and black cardstock and attach the pieces using glossy accents.
  • Cut additional snowman parts in red, black, green, woodgrain and orange cardstock and loosely assemble them and attach to the wagon using mounting tape and glossy accents.

Assemble the Z Fold Snowman Card

  • 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 trees to the insert layers using double stick tape. 
  • Tuck the two small snowmen in behind the snow layers on both sides of the card and attach using mounting tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower front portion of the large snowman and attach him to the insert layer.
  • Attach the wagon full of snowman parts to the front snow layer using mounting tape.
  • Attach snowflakes to the sky area, trees and images using Gina K Connect glue.  Hint:  I have several dies with eyelet borders so I save the circles from those when I cut to use as snowflakes.  I use the Gina K Connect glue to attach them instead of my favorite Glossy Accents  as it dries perfectly clear in case some of the glue spills out from under the snowflakes. 
  • Finish by attaching a few red birds to the scene for an additional touch of color using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this colorful Z Fold snowman card.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Z Fold Snowman card.  I took a close up picture of the wagon full snowman parts for you to see since they don’t really show up well in the other pictures.  I thought it was such a fun idea to make it look like there were lots more parts and pieces to build additional snowmen.  You can check out this snowman Pinterest link if you would like inspiration.  As hot as it is around the country it may be cooling for the soul to start making your winter holiday cards this weekend.  LOL!  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great Sunday.

Christmas in July Snowy Nature Deer Scene

Today I’m celebrating “Christmas in July” for a third day with this snowy nature deer scene card.  This is a perfect masculine holiday card but is so sweet with the mother and baby deer that it would work for anyone recipient.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Tree In Oval, Birch Forest, Deer Family, Deckle Hills, Small Birds and Greenery #1

Come over to my blog to see how I made this pretty snowy nature deer scene card.

The Oval Tree, Birch Forest and Snow Layer

  • Cut the Tree in Oval using green cardstock and the Birch Forest and snow layer using white cardstock.
  • Use the oval frame as a template to draw cutting lines on the blue background layer, Birch Forest and snow layer.
  • Use snips to cut the Birch Forest, blue background layer and snow layer to fit behind the oval frame.
  • Add touches of Pumice Stone ink to the bark markings on the Birch Forest using a mini applicator.
  • Attach double stick tape to the back of the frame and attach the snow layer. and Birch Forest.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame and attach it to the blue card base.
  • Attach double stick tape to the back of the blue background layer and frame and attach it to the white card base.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this crisp snowy nature deer scene card.

The Deer, Birds and Greenery

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink to the deer using mini applicators.  Check out my Coloring Animal tutorial if you would like to see a few step by step photos of how I colored my deer.
  • Attach mounting tape to the back of the deer and attach them to the card base.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the greenery and tuck the pieces in behind the snow layer and attach using glossy accents.
  • Apply touches of white Gesso to the greenery tips using a small brush.
  • Cut the birds using red cardstock and finish the card by attaching them in the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this snowy nature deer scene card.

I never tire of making snowy nature deer scene cards.  I grew up on 300 acres in West Virginia and it was a common occurrence to look out our living room window to see groups of deer out in the fields.  I was always in awe of their beauty and graceful appearance.  Check out this Pinterest Snow Nature Deer Scene link if you would like more inspiration.  It’s never too early to start on your holiday cards.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great week.

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.

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.

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.
