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.

Snowy Tree Scene Card

Good Wednesday morning.  I have a clean and simple snowy tree scene card to share with you today using the new Impression Obsession Wintery Day scene stamp.  I added a bit of dimension to the scene by framing it using the All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2 and embellishing it with a Small Poinsettia, Pine Pair and Cardinals.

Come see how I made this snowy tree scene card embellished with a poinsettia and pine branches.

The Snowy Tree Scene and Frame

I secured the Wintery Day stamp and cardstock in place in my MISTI, applied Peeled Paint ink to the image and stamped.  The first image was a little light so I applied more ink and stamped it a second time.  Using a MISTI for this type of stamping is such a help.  I applied mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base.

Come see how I made this clean and simple snowy tree scene card embellished with a poinsettia and pine branches.

Embellishing the Snowy Tree Scene Card

I felt like the right top corner of the scene looked too blank and wanted to add something of interest to the corner.  It was a perfect place for a small stamped sentiment but I decided to use a poinsettia and pine to add dimension.  I cut one full section of the poinsettia in red and then cut the largest flower in green.  I formed the petals using my stylus and molding pad and then attached the layers together using glossy accents.  I applied the large green poinsettia to the bottom of the flower to appear as a green foliage base.

I cut three sections of pine, trimmed them to shorten and attached them to the corner of the frame using glossy accents to create a base for the poinsettia.  Next, I applied glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attached it to the pine.  I formed 3 1/8″ punched circles with my smallest tipped stylus and molding pad and attached them in the center of the poinsettia using glossy accents.

I thought the scene needed another touch of red so I attached the two flying cardinals using small pieces of mounting tape for the finishing touch.

Come see how I made this simple snowy tree scene card embellished with a poinsettia and pine branches.

Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have enjoyed seeing my snowy tree scene card using the new Wintery Day stamp.

Vintage Truck Snow Scene

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.

Vintage Truck Snow Scene

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.

Would like to learn to make a Vintage Truck Snow Scene

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. 

Making a Vintage Truck Snow Scene is fun

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. 

Merry Christmas From Our House to Yours

Good  Christmas morning.  I searched my files to find my all time favorite Christmas project made using the Cottage Cutz Mountain Lodge set and Rustic Sign and Trees set.  I put lots of work into creating this snowy mountain lodge scene but it was well worth it.  We have been having mild weather here in Florida with the highs in the low 80s and lows in the 50s.  The only way I can dream of a white Christmas is to look back on all of my fun snowy holiday projects from the past.

Bob and I wish you all a very blessed and merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Snowy Christmas House

Good Saturday afternoon.  My project today is a snowy Christmas house scene made using the Impression Obsession Brick House, Square House, Snowy Roof, Pine Sprig Cluster, Fir Sprigs, Evergreen Trees and Cardinals. The frame was made the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables and Nestabilities Matting Basics B.   I went with all white for the house and background so the red and green would really pop.

I assembled the windows, drapes and door and attached to the front of the house using glossy accents.  I applied white embossing paste to the roof and chimney section with a Sofft spatula and sprinkled with clear glitter to add sparkle.  I applied Cosmic Glitter Glue to the icicles and sprinkled with glitter.  When dry the roof and icicles were attached together using double stick tape.  I applied touches of  embossing paste to the windows and applied glitter.  The trees were crimped and then covered with paste and glitter.  All the pieces were set aside to dry.  I attached tiny springs of fir and red berries to the windows and applied touches of red glitter.  I cut the tips off several fir sprigs and hand cut a tiny circle wreath base.  I attached the tiny sprigs to the circle with glossy accents and then finished with red berries with red stickles and a handmade red bow made with thin strips of red cardstock. The wreath was attached to the front of the house with glossy accents.

I lined up the scalloped rectangle and matting basics rectangle on my big shot using my magnetic platform and cut the frame.  I hand cut a ground snow piece using my deckle scissors and attached it to the back of the frame using double stick tape. I masked off the frame around the ground snow section to protect it and applied embossing paste and glitter.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base. I tucked the house in behind the ground piece and attached with mounting tape.  I attached the trees on both sides of the house using mounting tape and glue dots.  I finished by adding the cardinal to the sky area using glossy accents.

This was a time consuming card to make but oh what fun it was for me.  I especially love the look of the snow covered crimped trees.  Do you own a crimper and have it buried so far deep in your crafting space that don’t even remember you have one?  I know it is considered an old-fashioned tool but I love  how it adds dimension and interest. 

Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great Saturday.

Snowy Trees and Cardinals

ood Thursday morning.  I have another nature inspired snowy scene card to share today using the Impression Obsession Tree FrameAll-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.

KC Impression Obsession Tree Frame 14 right

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.

KC Impression Obsession Tree Frame 14 center

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!
