Die Cut Holly Wreath

Good Wednesday morning.  I have a pretty die cut holly wreath to share with you today using the new Rubbernecker Stamps Holly Set and framed using the Square Combo frame set.   I added sparkle to the holly berries with touches of red Stickles. 

Come see how I made this pretty die cut holly wreath.

The Frame

  • Cut the frames using red cardstock.
  • Lay the two frame sections face down and attach them together using double stick tape.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

Come see how I made this framed die cut holly wreath.

The Wreath

  • Cut the center circle frame out of the Square Combo set using green cardstock.
  • Cut several sections of holly using green cardstock and berry sections using red cardstock.
  • Gently form the holly leaves with a large stylus and molding pad.
  • Apply glossy accents to the three largest holly sections and place them to cover the circle wreath base.
  • Cut the smaller holly sections apart and attach them to the wreath base with glossy accents o fill in the wreath.
  • Apply glossy accents to the berry sections and attach the red berry pieces.
  • Apply red Stickles to the berries and allow to dry.
  • Attach the wreath to the card base using a ample amount of glossy accents.
  • Finish by tying a white organdy multi loop bow and attach it to the wreath using glue dots.

Come see how I made this die cut holly wreath.

I loved making this die cut holly wreath and I can’t wait to use the Holly set with my poinsettia holiday projects.  You can check out the whole Rubbernecker release here. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Die Cut Deer Winter Scene

Good Tuesday morning.  I have a die cut deer winter scene card to share with you today using several new dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I love making scene projects of all kinds but especially snowy nature scenes for my holiday cards.  I have fond memories of snowy Christmases growing up in West Virginia.  Our home sat in the middle of two large fields that were surrounded by trees.  We could regularly look out of our front windows and see deer standing in the field but close to the edge of the woods to retreat if necessary.  It was such an awe inspiring scene.

For this scene I used the Deer Family, Tabbed Birch Trees, Twigs, Small Birds, 3 Tree Group and the frame was made using the Nested Rectangle set.  The tabbed tree set comes with 4 individual trees sized to fit horizontally on a card front.  They also made a beautiful Birch Forest cover plate die that fits vertically on a card front.   I didn’t use the forest die but linked here and below so you could see both sets.

Come see how I made this die cut deer winter scene.

The Tree Background

  • Cut a 5.25″ x 4.00″ piece of white cardstock for the scene base.
  • Secure the piece of cardstock in the MISTI using magnets.
  • Stamp the tree image across the base using Peeled Paint ink.
  • Use an in blending tool to apply Tumbled Glass ink to the sky area and in between the trees.
  • Note:  I love using my MISTI!  It allowed me to stamp the front tree multiple times to make them darker green so they would stand out in front of the lighter trees in the background.  If you don’t have a MISTI or any other stamp positioning tool you need to add one to your Christmas list because they are invaluable. 

The Birch Trees, Deer, Twigs and Birds

  • Cut the trees and deer using white cardstock.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply soft touches of Pumice Stone ink to the bark markings on the trees.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks to the deer.
  • Cut the small birds using red cardstock and color their beaks using a black Copic marker.
  • Cut a couple sections of the twigs using green cardstock.

Come see how I made this pretty die cut deer winter scene.

The Frame and Snow Layers

  • Cut a piece of white cardstock 5.50″ x 4.25″.
  • Place the cardstock on the magnetic platform.
  • Line up the rectangle die on the cardstock and run through the die cutting machine to cut the frame.
  • Cut two snow layers out of a piece of 5.50″ white cardstock.

Assemble the Die Cut Deer Winter Scene

  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the frame and attach the trees.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape around the back of the frame.
  • Attach the back snow layer to the back of the trees and frame and then apply double stick tape to the back of the snow layer.
  • Attach the tree scene to the card base using double stick tape and then attach the frame with trees over the scene.
  • Attach the second snow layer to the front of the frame using strips of mounting tape. 
  • Tuck the deer in behind the snow layer and attach using mounting tape.
  • Tuck sections of the twigs in behind the snow layer and attach with glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching the red birds in the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this snowy die cut deer winter scene.

This die cut deer winter scene is a perfect holiday card for anyone but especially when you need a masculine card.  I love how the red birds pop against the green tree background and make the scene come to life.  I hope you have been inspired to get out your dies and stamps to create a winter scene card of your own.  You can check out the complete new October die release here. There are so many wonderful new dies that I had a hard time trying to decide which ones to use first.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Impression Obsession Fall Winter Die Release

Good Monday morning.  I have really enjoyed playing with the new Impression Obsession fall winter die release.  I always love it when they release scenic dies that can be used for masculine cards.  My first project was made using the new Spotted Deer Frame layered over the Tree Frame with stamped Fir Trees in the background.  I embellished the card using Cardinals, Pine Sprig Clusters and framed it using the All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2.

Come see how I made this deer card for the Impression Obsession Fall Winter Die Release.

The Layered Tree Frames and Background

  • Cut the All-in-One Rectangle Frame, Spotted Deer Frame and Tree Frame using Kraft cardstock.
  • Trim off the deer and set aside
  • Apply the Antique Linen ink pad directly on the frames and then follow by applying the Vintage Photo ink pad directly on the frames.
  • Cut two ground snow sections.
  • Cut two ground snow sections.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower back of rectangle frame and attach one ground snow section.
  • Apply double stick tape all the way around the back of the frame and attach the Spotted Deer Frame.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the Spotted Deer Frame and attach the Tree Frame.  The double mounting tape layers will help add dimension to the scene.
  • Secure the blue card base and fir tree in the MISTI and stamp the tree background using Peeled Paint ink.  I stamped each tree twice for darker coverage.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the frames and attach it to the card base.

Finish the Scene

  • Color the deer using mini applicators and Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink.
  • Attach the second snow ground piece to the front of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the deer legs and tuck them in behind the front snow and attach legs to the back snow piece.
  • Cut cardinals using red cardstock and apply black to the beaks using a black Copic marker.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of each cardinal and attach them in the branches and on the ground snow.
  • Finish by apply glossy accents to the pine sprigs and tucking them in behind the front snow section.

Come see how I made this deer scene card for the Impression Obsession Fall Winter Die Release.

My second project is a 3 x 3 gift card made using the Squirrel Circle set and Tiny Single Leaves.  This is a small set and perfect to use for gift cards or tags. 

Come see how I made this fall squirrel gift card for the Impression Obsession Fall Winter Die Release.

Cutting and Coloring the Squirrel Circles

  • Cut both the tree layer and squirrel layer using 2.50″ squares of white cardstock.
  • Cut a small white ground section using deckle scissors and color it with a mini applicator and Peeled Paint ink.
  • Color the  trees and squirrel using mini applicators and Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink.
  • Apply a swatch of color on a piece of white scrap cardstock using mini applicators and Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade. 
  • Cut the tiny leaves out of the swatch of colored cardstock.
  • Trim around the tree background layer to make it fit well behind the front circle frame.
  • Apply double stick tape to the small green ground layer and attach in front of the trees.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the Squirrel layer, line it up directly over the tree layer and attach.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the framed layers and attach it to the blue card base.
  • Finish the scene by attaching the tiny leaves to the branches and ground area using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this fall squirrel gift card for the Impression Obsession Fall Winter Die Release.
