Snowy Pine Tree Card

My project today is a snowy pine tree card made using one of the trees from the Rubbernecker Stamps 3 Pine Tree Set.  Are you in shock that I have no die cuts on this project?  LOL!  This is one of my all time favorite evergreen tree stamps and I I love using it with some form of snow.  The tree is large and is perfect to use as a single focal image on a clean and simple card.

Come over to my blog and check out how I made this snowy pine tree card.

The Tree

  • Stamp the tree using Versafine Clair Acorn ink and heat set with your heat gun.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply a light shade of Shabby Shutters ink to the branch sections of the tree.
  • Apply a darker shade of green to the branches using a mini applicator and Peeled Paint.
  • Apply Vintage Photo ink to the trunk sections of the tree using a mini applicator.
  • Heat set the inks with your heat gun.
  • Use an ink blending tool to apply Tumbled Glass ink to shade around the tree.
  • Use a pointed tipped spatula to apply white embossing paste to the branches and to the ground area around the tree trunk.
  • Sprinkle the embossing paste with clear glitter and shake off excess.

 

Come over to my blog and check out how I made this sparkly snowy pine tree card.

Finish the Card

  • Cut the aqua layer to fit behind the tree layer and attach together using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut an aqua layer to fit across the card base, crimp to add dimension and attach to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the tree layer and attach to the card base.

Come over to my blog and check out how I made this pretty snowy pine tree card.

This snowy pine tree card was fast and easy to make.  It would be a perfect holiday card to mass produce with a sentiment inside.  The whole card front start to finish only took about 20 minutes.  You can check out my Winter Snow Scene Tutorial if you would like to see how I used this tree and applying snow using white craft ink and white embossing powder.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a good day.

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.

For this card I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Spooky House, Spooky Tree, Wrought Iron Fence, Witches, Deckle Hills, Birds and Nested Circles.

Come check out how I made this spooky house Halloween card.

Assemble the Card Base

  • Cut the grass layer using green cardstock and the fence using black cardstock.

  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the front grass layer and attach the fence sections.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the grass/fence section and attach to the card base.

Assemble the Spooky House

  • Apply thin pieces of mounting tape to the back of the green roof sections and attach them to the house.
  • Apply glossy accents to the door, windows and brick sections and attach them to the house.
  • Attach pieces of mounting tape to the back of the house and attach it to the card base.
  • Add touches of sparkle to the windows using yellow Stickles.

Finish the Scene

  • Use a circle die to cut the yellow moon section, attach the circle to the card base using mounting tape and apply sparkle using a Nuvo shimmer pen.
  • Cut the tree, witch and birds using black cardstock.
  • Use mounting tape to attach the witch to the moon.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the tree, tuck it behind the grass layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Finish the scene by apply tiny pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach to the card base.

Come see how I made this colorful spooky house Halloween card.

This spooky house Halloween card was lots of fun to make.  I think the cartoony house makes such a cute main image for this scene.  The Spooky House is part of the new Rubbernecker fall die release.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Beach Scene with Vintage Woody

My project today is a beach scene with vintage woody card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 4 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.

Come see how I made this beach scene with vintage woody card.

The Beach Scene

  • Cut the scene base using the Nested Deckle Rectangle and white cardstock.
  • Apply an Eclipse tape all the way around the outer border of the base to create a mask.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the sand area and Tumbled Glass ink to the water area using a stylus and foam tip.
  • Create the cloud sky area using a cloud stencil and ink blending tool.
  • Sketch in the sea oats using a green marker and then add touches of Vintage Photo ink on the sand at the base of the oats.
  • Use your finger to apply touches of white embossing paste to the water area and the edge of the sand by dabbing gently.
  • Apply clear glitter to the embossing paste while it is still wet.
  • Attach the beach scene layer to the blue layer using mounting tape and attach both to the card base using double stick tape.

 

Come see how I made this sparkling beach scene with vintage woody card.

The Woody

  • Cut the Woody parts using woodgrain, green, black, white, orange and gray cardstock.
  • Apply Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink to the green card sections using mini applicators to create the appearance of rust and age.
  • Attach the woodgrain section to the car using glossy accents.
  • Apply mounting tape to the fenders and attach them to the car base.
  • Assemble the tire and wheel sections, attach them together using glossy accents and then attach to the car using glossy accents.
  • Attach the orange surfboard to the top of the car using glossy accents.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the Woody and attach it to the scene base.
  • Finish by cutting three flying birds, apply Pumice Stone ink to the wings using a mini applicator and attach them to the sky area using pieces of mounting tape.

 

Come see how I made this summer beach scene with vintage woody card.

This beach scene with vintage Woody is not quite as detailed with dimensional parts and pieces as I usually make but I liked the simplicity of it.  The sparkly ocean in the background is pretty and the birds in the sky draw the eye up but the Woody is still the main focal point.  It’s fun to add age and rust to the car image so it doesn’t look so perfect.  Have you tried making sea foam on your beach scenes with white embossing paste and glitter.  It’s really very easy and yet the outcome is so pretty.   Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Dry Embossed Die Background

My project today is a dry embossed die background and floral card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 3 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.

Come see how I made this pretty dry embossed die background.

This card was made using the Floral Frame Die, 5109D Mixable Flower Stack, Large Ivy and Tiny Flower Buds.  I made a very similar card ( see below) last month using almost the same dies and color combination but popped the die cut Floral Frame up on the card base.  I am a nut about adding dimension to my cards so if I had to choose I would prefer the popped up frame look.  But with that said, it is always great to find additional uses for our dies.  The embossed Floral Frame is really very pretty and adds texture to the card without distracting from the floral arrangement.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this lovely die cut decorative frame and flowers card.

  • Place the rubber embossing mat on the die cut plate. 
  • Lay the white card base on the rubber mat and place the Floral Frame die over the cardstock. 
  • Cover with the top cutting plate and run through the die cutting machine.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the embossed layer and attach to the card base.
  • Note:  I used my Crossover II die cutting machine to dry emboss my card base.  I love that I could loosen the pressure of the cutting platform to create enough space for embossing with the rubber mat without having to use extra shims.    I have my Crossover sitting right beside my Big Shot Express but find myself using it almost exclusively because of the ease of setting the pressure higher or lower according to the kind of die cutting or embossing I’m doing.  Setting stronger pressure works great for my more detailed and intricate dies that many times fail to cut completely in my Big Shot.  Loosening the pressure for embossing with the rubber mat or embossing folder is as simple as raising the dial up slightly on the Crossover.  Check out this link to find all the Features and Benefits of this die cutting machine.

The Flowers and Ivy

  • Cut the flowers using purple cardstock and the ivy using green cardstock.
  • Place the flowers face up  on the molding pad and form the petals using the large ball stylus.
  • Press down in the center of the flower to push the petals up.
  • Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents making sure to offset each layer.
  • Form the tiny flower buds using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach them to the center of each flower.
  • Attach the large flowers to the card base using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the ivy pieces under the glowers and attach with glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching the tiny flowers to the ivy to add another element of purple to the design.

I enjoyed creating this dry embossed die background and flowers card.  I know I say it all the time but I really love how the purple and green pops against the all white background.  The embossed background created an elegant touch.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great Monday and great week.
