Die Cut Tropical Palm Trees

I made this clean and simple die cut tropical palm trees scene card for the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Tropical Paradise Challenge.  This little card is only 4.00″ square.  I would normally have used a frame for a scene like this but I wanted to stay true to the challenge.

Come see how I made this clean and simple die cut tropical palm trees scene.

The Water Sky Background

I attached a piece of Eclipse tape to a piece of scrap cardstock, punched a circle and then separated the tape from the cardstock.  I attached the negative circle piece of tape to the sky area to the card base and applied yellow ink using a stylus and foam tip to create the sun. Next I used the circle tape piece to cover up the yellow sun to create a mask and applied the blue ink to the sky and water area using a stylus and foam tip.

Coloring Tropical Palm Trees, Hammock and Sand

I used brown and green Copic markers to color the palm trees and a teal Copic marker to color the hammock.  I applied tan ink to the sandy beach layer of the die using a stylus and foam tip. 

Come see how I made this clean and simple die cut tropical palm trees card.

Completing the Die Cut Tropical Palm Trees

I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the sand portion of the die, thin strips to the back of the palm trees and attached the scene to the card base. 

 

Come see how I made this clean and simple die cut tropical palm trees scene card.

I would like to be laying in the hammock.  I had a great time making this die cut tropical palm trees scene but had to discipline myself not to add lots of extra like grasses, sea foam and sea oats.

Impression Obsession “Happy Colors” Challenge

Welcome to the Impression Obsession ” Happy Colors”  design team challenge.  Our Challenge was to play with colors that make us happy and I chose to use purple, green and white, one of my favorite color combinations.  My die cut butterfly flourish project was made using the background layer from the Bunny Frame set , All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2, Ribbon Butterfly , Tiny Five Petals and Leaves and Stems.

Come see how I made this die cut butterfly flourish embellished with flowers.

The Frame Layers

I attached the scalloped rectangle frame to the white layer using thin strips of mounting tape.  I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the white layer and attached it to the card base.

Come see how I made this die cut butterfly flourish embellished with flowers and foliage.

The Die Cut Butterfly Flourish and Flowers

The butterfly flourish was attached to the card base using rolled up strips of double stick tape.  The stems and flowers were attached to the butterfly using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this framed die cut butterfly flourish embellished with flowers and foliage.

Die Cut Flower Pots and Butterflies

I have a pretty spring colored die cut flower pots and butterflies card to share with you today using garden and frame dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  For this project I used the 5132 Rectangle Combo #2 OPC Die, 5147-18D Tulip Tops Die, 5147-16D Tall Terracotta Pot Die, 5147-05D Flower Stems Die, 5147-09D Flower Buds Die, 5147-08D Small Butterflies Die, 5152-03D Grass Set and 5118D Leaf Group Die.

Come see how to make this spring die cut flower pots and butterflies project.

The Pots

I cut the pots using Alpaca cardstock and colored and shaded them using mini applicators and Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink.  I started by applying a light coat of Wild Honey and then added darker tones around the edges and and top of the pots using Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo.  I made sure I left the centers of the pots a lighter color to create more realistic pots.

The Flowers

I several sets of flower stems using Easter Grass cardstock and the flowers using Cotton Candy, Sour Lemon and Sour Grape cardstock.  I formed the Sour Grape flower using my small tipped stylus and molding pads and attached them to the flower stems using glossy accents.  I gently rounded the tulip heads using the larger stylus and molding pad and attached them to the flower stems using glossy accents.

Arranging the Flower Pots

I created the two smaller pots of flower by attaching the stems to the back of the pots using glossy accents.  I started by attaching the front flower stems first and worked my way back adding taller stems.  Next I cut a couple sections of the Leaf Group die, cut them apart and created a larger foliage arrangement in the tallest pot. I began with the shortest foliage branches and worked by way back adding taller branches until I was satisfied with the size to stand behind the two front pots.  I attached purple flowers to the branches using glossy accents until it was full of blooms. 

Come see how I made this spring die cut flower pots and butterflies project.

The Frame and Grass

I cut the frames die and attached the two largest sections together using double stick tape. I cut one grass section and attached it to the back of the frame using double stick tape.  I cut thin strips of mounting tape, attached them to the back of the frame and attached it to the pink card base.

The Die Cut Flower Pots and Butterflies

I tucked the tallest post in behind the brass and attached it to the card base using mounting tape.  Next I applied mounting tape to the back of the two smaller pots and tucked them in behind the grass and attached them to the card base and taller flower pot.  I added several small butterflies to the scene for the finishing touch.

Come see how to make this spring die cut flower pots and butterflies project perfect for so many occasions.

I appreciate you coming by today and I hope my spring flower scene using die cut flower pots and butterflies has inspired you to get out your favorite dies to make a scene of your own.

Framed Die Cut Bird House Scene

I had lots of fun making this framed die cut bird house scene card using several of the new Rubbernecker May release dies.  I really like the three different sizes and shapes of the houses in the set.  The larger house works great to create as a the main focal point on a card front.  The smaller ones work perfectly in scenes with lots of other images surrounding it.  I have made lots of bird house projects over the years and thought I would list a link here for you.  

Come check out how I made this framed die cut bird house scene card.

The Frame and Tree Panel

I cut the tree panel and cut it apart to fit in the frames.  I attached the tree sections to the back of the frame using double stick tape and then applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the white scene base. 

Assembling the Bird Houses

I cut the bird houses out using woodgrain and red cardstock.  I assembled the pieces together using double stick tape and small pieces of mounting tape. 

Come see how I made this framed die cut bird house scene card perfect for bird lovers..

The Flowers and Birds

I formed the tiny flowers using the smallest stylus tip that I own along with my molding pad.  I cut the birds and added touches of black on the beak of each bird using a black Copic marker.

Completing the Frame Die Cut Bird Scene

The bird houses were attached to the card base using mounting tape.  I added tiny pieces of foliage to the roof tops and openings using glossy accents and embellished with tiny flowers.  I used glossy accents to attach tiny flowers all around the tree panels and finished the scene by attaching several birds to the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this framed die cut bird house scene card.

I sure do appreciate you coming by and I hope you are having a good week.  I hope you are inspired to get out your dies to create your own framed die cut bird house scene card.
