Snowy Christmas Card

Today I’m sharing a pretty snowy Christmas card with an evergreen tree background and a bicycle and lamp post as the main focal image.  I really love how the trees get lighter in color to draw the eye back into the distance of the scene.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps 3 Pine Trees set and the Splatter Background to create the snowy scene background and the Winter Lamp Post, Bicycle, Deckle Hills, Cardinals and Tiny Leaves to create the focal images. 

Come see how I made this snowy Chritmas card.

The Snowy Tree Background

  • Apply a blue sky background to the scene base using Tumbled Glass ink and an ink blending tool.
  • Stamp the front row of trees using Shady Lane ink.
  • Create the second tree row by stamping off the image once on scrap paper before stamping on the scene base.  Repeat this step to complete the second row.
  • Stamp off the tree two times on scrap paper before stamping the last row of trees. 
  • Heat dry the ink on the whole scene base with the heat gun to prepare for stamping the falling snow to avoid having embossing powder sticking to it.
  • Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Background and stamp it on the scene.
  • Sprinkle white embossing powder over the scene, shake off excess and heat using the heat gun.  Note:  Sometimes it’s necessary to turn the card base face down and strike a few times on the back to remove excess powder.

The Die Cut Images

  • Use black and white cardstock to cut the lamp post and snowy accessories.
  • Attach white pieces to the lamp post using glossy accents.
  • Cut the bicycle sections using red, black, gray and woodgrain cardstock.
  • Assemble the bicycle parts together using glossy accents.
  • Cut the holly leaves for the basket using green cardstock.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the deckle hills.
  • Cut the cardinals using red cardstock and color their beaks using a black marker.
  • Stamp the bicycle and basket with the Splatter Background and emboss with white embossing powder.  Note:  I should have stamped the black lamp post with the snowy background as well but forgot.  I wanted the images to appear as if they were in falling snow.

Come see how I made this pretty snowy Chritmas card.

Assemble the Snowy Christmas Card

  • Apply double stick tape to the back snow layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Use a trip of mounting tape to attach the front layer of snow to the card base.
  • Create the holly basket arrangement by attaching the leaves to the basket using glossy accents and paint the tips of the leaves using white Gesso..
  • Attach the basket arrangement to the bicycle using glossy accents.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the lamp post and bicycle, tuck them in behind the snow layer and attach to the card base.
  • Finish the scene by attaching the three cardinals using small pieces of mounting tape.

Snowy Christmas House Scene Card

Today I’m sharing a pretty snowy Christmas house scene card made using several dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I had fun modifying the new Spooky House die and using it to create this winter cottage.  I always enjoy trying to come up with more ways to use the dies I have and I thought the house was perfect set in the middle of a snowy scene. I framed the scene using the Rectangle Combo #3 and created the scenery using the Deckle Hills, Pine Tree Forest and Greenery #1

Come see how I made this snowy christmas house scene card.

The Frame, Snow Layers and Trees

  • Cut the frame and snow snow layers using white cardstock.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the pine trees.
  • Turn the frame sections face down and attach them together on the back using double stick tape.
  • Attach the two front snow layers to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach the third snow layer.
  • Attach the two rows of trees to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the frame where the tree layers hit the mounting tape and then attach the whole framed scene to the blue card base.  Tuck a few pieces of mounting tape to the back of the trees to hold them away from the blue background.
  • Use the negative circles from the eyelet frame section as snowflakes and attach them to the sky area and trees using Connect glue. I like this glue for things like the snowflakes as it dries clear.

Come see how I made this pretty snowy christmas house scene card.

The House

  • Cut the house using woodgrain cardstock and the roof sections using white cardstock.
  • To modify the house I cut off the tall pointed roof section on the left side and the pointed outer roof section on the right side.
  • Attach the white roof sections to the house using strips of rolled up double stick tape and glossy accents.
  • Attach the windows and doors to the house using glossy accents and fill in the window openings using yellow stickles.
  • Cut several sections of greenery using green cardstock.
  • Use greenery tips to create the window decorations and roof top wreath and attach them using glossy accents.
  • Punch out red 1/16″ circles and attach them to the wreath and window decorations using glossy accents.
  • Apply white paint  to the windows decorations and roof wreath, allow to dry and then apply white embossing paste to fill in the snow.
  • Apply a piece of mounting tape to the back of the house and tuck it in behind the front snow layer.

The Greenery

  • Cut the greenery branches apart and tuck them in behind the snow layers and attach using glossy accents.
  • Use a small brush to apply white paint to the tips of the branches.
  • Sprinkle clear glitter to the branch tips while the paint is wet and shake off.  The sparkle doesn’t show well in the photos.

Come see how I made this lovely snowy christmas house scene card.

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.

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.
