Christmas Tree Window Card

Today I’m sharing a fun Christmas tree window card with a kitty cat sitting on the sill contemplating havoc on the tree.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Window 4 Pane, Greenery #1, Wrought Iron Fence, Lamp Post w/ Accessories, Nested Deckle Rectangle, Tiny Leaves, Cats and Small Star Outline

Come over to my my blog to see how I made this christmas tree window card.

The Christmas Tree

  • Cut several sections of the greenery and cut the branches apart.
  • Hand cut a slim triangle tree base using green cardstock.
  • Begin attaching single branches to the top of the tree base using glossy accents and work your way down adding branches until the tree is complete.  Check out my Christmas Tree Step by Step Tutorial to see photos and details of how I made my tree.
  • Punch out several 1/8″ red circles and attach them to the tree using glossy accents.
  • Attach a gold star and red bow to the top of the tree using glossy accents.
  • Apply red stickles to the red circles and set aside to dray.

The Window

  • Cut the window using white cardstock.
  • Use the window as a template to draw cut lines on the card base.
  • Cut the window opening opening on the scored card base using a craft knife.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the window and attach it over the opening on the scored card base.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape on the back of the scored card base and set aside.

Come over to my my blog to see how I made this pretty christmas tree window card.

Assemble the Card

  • Apply double stick tape to the tree base and attach it to the back of the scored card base.
  • Cut a piece of decorative paper and attach it to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Attach the scored window base to the card base.
  • Create the snow base by cutting a nested deckle rectangle and cutting off one side.  Note:  I used an edge of a deckle rectangle instead of the Deckle Hills because I wanted a straighter edge along the snow base.
  • Use black cardstock to cut the fence and attach it to the back of the snow layer using double stick tape.
  • Cut the lamps using black cardstock and cut yellow cardstock to fit behind.  Attach the lamps to the card base with pieces of mounting tape.
  • Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the snow layer and attach it to the card base.

Decorate the Fence and Lamps

  • Cut tiny leaves and attach to the top of the lamps using glossy accents.
  • Attach tiny red circles to the lamps using glossy accents and then apply red stickles to the circles to add sparkle.
  • Create the evergreen decoration by attaching greenery branches to the fence using glossy accents.
  • Attach a multi loop red bow to the evergreen using glue dots.  Check out my Multi Loop Bow Tutorial to see how I made my bow.
  • Finish the card by coloring a cat and tucking it in the window and attach using glossy accents.

Come over to my my blog to see how I made this lovely christmas tree window card.

Window Card with Brick Background

Today I’m sharing a window card with brick background that I made using the new Rubbernecker Stamps Brick Wall Stencil paired with the Window 4 Pane, Mixable Flower Stack , Large Ivy and Tiny Flower Buds.  This is my first attempt using one of the large stencils that Rubbernecker recently released.  I had lots of fun applying ink with the Life Changing Blender Brushes and Sofft Mini Applicators and trying to create a variety of colors on the bricks. 

Come see how I made this window card with brick background.

The Stenciled Brick Background

  • Secure the stencil over a piece of white cardstock using Eclipse masking tape. 
  • Use the blender brush to apply a light layer of Antique Linen ink over the whole stencil.
  • Next apply Vintage Photo ink using the blender brush to create a deeper brown to the bricks. Note:  Applying the lighter shade of Antique Linen ink first creates moisture on the cardstock and makes it easier to blend in the darker colors.
  • Apply Rusty Hinge and Gathered Twigs inks to the bricks using mini applicators to create the variation in brick colors.
  • Remove mask and apply a light layer of Antique Linen ink over all the mortar lines.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the brick layer and attach to the card base.

Come see how I made this floral window card with brick background.

The Window and Flowers

  • Use cream cardstock to cut the window and flower box.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window and window box and attach to the card base.
  • Cut the flowers using yellow cardstock and the flower centers using brown cardstock.
  • Apply Rusty Hinge ink to the flowers using a mini applicator. 
  • Form the flowers using a stylus and molding pad and attach the layers together using glossy accents.
  • Attach the tiny brown flowers to the center of each flower using glossy accents.
  • Cut the ivy using green cardstock and attach the sections to the window using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the flowers and attach them to the ivy and window.

Come see how I made this sunflower window card with brick background.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my window card with brick background.  I wish that I had left the flowers a brighter yellow as I think they would have shown up better against the dark bricks.  I love making window cards and so far I have 102 of them in my Window Cards category.  Feel free to check them out if you would like more window inspiration.  You can also find tons of window card inspiration on Pinterest.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Die Cut Fall Tree and Window

Today I’m sharing a die cut fall tree and window card using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I used the Winter Tree, Tiny Leaves, Window 4 Pane, Borders #2, Stitched Hills, Grass #2, Small Ivy and Cart Accessories #2.   There is something so soothing to me about using a crisp white and light blue background with fall colors.  The shimmer on the leaves really makes them pop.

Come see how I made this die cut fall tree and window card.

The Card Base, Siding and Window

  • Cut several pieces of 4.25″ x .50″ white cardstock .
  • Attach the siding strips to the card base using ATG adhesive, overlapping each layer as you work your way up.
  • Cut the window and drapes using white cardstock.
  • Use the window as a template to draw cutting lines on the card base.
  • Cut the window opening in the card base using a craft knife.
  • Crimp the drapes and attach them to the opening on the inside of the card base using double stick tape.
  • Attach a piece of blue cardstock to the inside opening of the card base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the window and window box and attach to the card base. 

Note:  It really isn’t necessary to cut the opening on the card base but I like to see the dimension between the back side of the drapes and the front of the window.  I think it makes it look much more realistic instead of the drapes being smashed against a flat card base. 

Come see how I made this colorful die cut fall tree and window card.

The Tree, Grass Layer and Pumpkins

  • Cut the tree using woodgrain cardstock, apply Antique Linen ink to the tree using the ink pad direct to cardstock technique.
  • Cut the leaves using mustard, red, green and orange cardstock and attach them to the tree using glossy accents.
  • Apply shimmer to the leaves using a Tonic Nuvo Shimmer pen.
  • Cut the grass layer and grass sprigs using green cardstock.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the grass layer and attach to the card base.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the tree, tuck the trunk in behind the grass layer and attach to the card base. Attach rolled up glue dots to the back of  a few key leaves to secure the tree top in place.
  • Tuck grass sprigs in behind the grass layer and attach with glossy accents.
  • Cut the pumpkins using orange cardstock and attach them to the card base to finish the scene.

Come see how I made this pretty die cut fall tree and window card.

It has been so hot here in Florida so I decided to cool things down a but by making this die cut fall tree and window card.  LOL!  I love all the elements of this card but my favorite thing is the  crimped eyelet drapes.  They add a touch of elegance to the cartoony appearance of the scene.  Check out this Pinterest link if you would like more fall window card inspiration.  As always I appreciate you coming by.

Floral Window Card

Today I’m sharing a floral window card made using one of my favorite color combinations of purple, green and white.

Come check out how I made this pretty floral window card.

The Window

  • Cut the window using white cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window and attach to the card base.

The Flowers, Ivy and Butterflies

  • Cut one section of the mixable flower stack and an additional large flower using purple cardstock.
  • Place the flowers face down on the molding pad and roll the petals up on the larger flowers using a large round stylus and small tipped stylus on the smaller flowers.
  • Turn the flower sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the flower centers to push the petals up.
  • Apply glossy accents to the center of the flowers sections and attach the layers together to complete the full flower.
  • Cut the flower buds using purple cardstock.
  • Place the flower buds  face up on the molding pan and push down in the centers to form the flowers.
  • Cut the ivy sections using green cardstock form the leaves gently using the leaf tool.
  • Cut the small butterflies using purple cardstock.

Come check out how I made this elegant floral window card.

Assemble the Flowers, Ivy and Butterflies

  • Apply glossy accents to the tip end of the ivy sections and attach both to the left corner, one up and one across.
  • Attach the small flowers to the ivy sections using glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching three small butterflies to the window frame and openings using glossy accents.

Good Saturday morning.  My project today is a pretty clean and simple die cut window and flower pots card made using several dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I used the Window 4 Pane, Tall Terracotta Pots, Small Ivy, Tiny Flower Buds, Small Butterflies, Borders #2 and Tabbed Grass.

Come see how I made this pretty clean and simple die cut window and flower pots card.

  • Cut one flower box.
  • Use the inner window openings as a template to draw cut lines on the card base.
  • Cut the window opening 1/8″ outside the template lines using a craft knife. 
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of one window and attach it over the front opening.
  • Cut 1 decorative drape sections using the Borders 2 die and run it through the crimper to add dimension.
  • Apply 1/8″ double stick tape to the back side of the window opening and attach the blind. 
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the second window and attach it on the inside to cover the drapes and opening.
  • Attach the flower box to the window using a piece of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this pretty clean and simple die cut window and flower pots card.

Coloring the Flower Pots

  • Cut the flower pots using yellow cardstock.
  • Apply Wild Honey ink using a mini applicator to cover the flower pots.
  • Apply Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink using mini applicators to shade and create the appearance of terracotta.

The Flower Arrangements

  • Cut several sections of the small ivy.
  • Cut the flowers using bright pink, apricot and purple aqua cardstock.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the ivy sections to the back of the pots using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flowers to the ivy using glossy accents to fill in the arrangements.
  • Attach the flower pots to the window using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Attach butterflies in the scene using glossy accents.
  • Attach pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the butterflies using glossy accents.
  • To finish the cut one section of grass using green cardstock and attach it to the card base using strops of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this pretty clean and simple die cut window and flower pots card.

I really love how this die cut window and flower pots scene card turned out.  I used my retired Stampin’ Up! color wheel to get my color combination and I think the three flower colors look great together against the soft blue card base.  Have you made a see thru window before?  You can check out my see thru window tutorial if you would like to see step by step photos of the basic steps of how I created this card.  The window die used in the tutorial is different but the basic steps are the same.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great weekend.

Die Cut Christmas Window

Good Thanksgiving morning.  I have a rustic die cut window scene card to share with you today.  The Window and background was stamped with the Rubbernecker Wood Grain Background and the tree and window arrangement was made using GreeneryBerries and the snow topper on the window was made using Deckle Hills.  I used one Small Bird on the window arrangement and one star from the Stars Die on top of the tree..

Come see how I made this snowy die cut christmas window.

Rustic Window and Card Base

  • Cut the window and card base using Kraft cardstock.
  • Secure the Wood Grain stamp in the MISTI and apply white pigment ink.
  • Secure the window and background in the MISTI and stamp the image.
  • Apply white embossing powder on each piece and emboss with the heat gun.
  • Apply brown ink to the window and background layer using a wet wipe.  Hint:  the wet wipe is a perfect way to get good ink coverage over an embossed area.  Just gently dab the wipe on the ink pad and smooth the ink over the whole piece.
  • Set the pieces aside to dry.

The Christmas Tree

  • Hand cut a piece of green cardstock in the shape of a Christmas tree triangle.
  • Cut several sections of the greenery die using green cardstock.
  • Cut the greenery sections into small sections and begin attaching them to the top of the tree triangle using glossy accents.
  • Continue adding pieces of greenery to the tree base using larger and larger pieces as you work your way down.
  • Check out my Evergreen Tree video tutorial and step by step photos over at Splitcoaststampers to see how I build my tree. The tutorial was done with different greenery branches but the procedure is exactly the same.
  • Punch out several 1/8″ circles using red cardstock and attach them to the tree using glossy accents.
  • Apply sparkle to the red circles using a clear overlay pen.
  • Cut the gold star using metallic gold cardstock and attach to the tree using glossy accents.
  • Finish the tree with a tiny red bow made using .50 cent ribbon from Michaels.

Come see how I made this die cut christmas window.

Assembling The Card Base and Window

  • Use the window as a template to draw cutting lines on the window base.
  • Cut the opening on the window base using a craft knife.
  • Cut a matching window opening on the card base using the craft knife.
  • Apply mounting tape around the window opening on the backside of the card base.
  • Attach a piece of designer paper to the window opening. I used a piece of retired Kaiser Kraft Christmas paper.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the window opening and attach the tree.
  • Apply mounting tape around the edges of the window layer and a couple pieces around the window opening and attach it directly over the window opening on the card base.
  • Attach the window die cut directly over the window opening.

The Window Arrangement and Snow

  • Cut the greenery and berry branches using green cardstock.
  • Cut the berries using red cardstock, pick them up using the jewel picker and attach them to the berry branches using glossy accents.
  • Apply sparkle to the berries using a clear overlay pen.
  • Attach the branches to the window base using glossy accents and continue to fill in the arrangement. 
  • Tuck the berry branches in behind the the front layers of greenery and attach using glossy accents.
  • Check out my step by step tutorial on creating an open window and evergreen arrangement.
  • Cut the deckle section using white  cardstock and trim to fit the top of the window.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the white layer using your finger.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the branches and berries using a small stylus.
  • Some of the brown ink floated up into the white embossing paste so I used touches of white gesso to cover.
  • Attach one small red bird to the branches and a multi loop bow to the arrangement for the finishing touch.
