Die Cut Window Scene with Cats and Birds

Good Saturday morning.  I have a fun die cut window scene with cats and birds to share with you today.   I like the color combination of blue, yellow and green with the white fence and outer frame. For this project I used Rubbernecker Stamps 5148-03D Windows with Double Stitch, 5132D Rectangle Combo #2 OPC, 5147-05D Flower Stems, 5147-10D Tiny Flower Buds, 5147-06D Small Birds, 5142-09D Cats, 5152-03D Grass, 5152-02D Knob Top Fence and 5147-12D Watering Can.

Come see how I made this die cut window scene with cats and birds card perfect for any occasion.

The Window Frame

I cut the window frame and scalloped frame, secured the window frame inside the scalloped frame and attached them together using double stick tape.  The window frame fit perfectly inside the scalloped frame but was just a touch longer so I just tucked the bottom portion in behind and attached with double stick tape.  I didn’t think it was too noticeable.  Next I attached the grass layers and fence to the back of the window frames.  I hand cut the two window boxes for the top window openings and attached them in place  rolled up glue dots.  I first tried attaching with mounting tape but it made them stick out too far.

Come see how I made this die cut window scene with cats and birds card perfect for a cat lover.

The Flowers and Stems

I formed all the tiny flowers using my stylus and molding pad and then attached three to each flower stem using glossy accents.  I tucked the stems in behind the grass and window boxes and attached with glossy accents.

Coloring the Cats and Watering Can

I cut the cats using white cardstock and colored them using mini applicators and Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink.  Check out my Coloring Die Cut Animals if you would like to see a few step by step photos showing how I colored the cats.  I cut the watering can using gray cardstock and colored it using mini applicators and Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo inks. 

Come see how I made this die cut window scene with cats and birds card perfect for a flower and cagt lover.

Completing the Die Cut Window Scene with Cats and Birds

I attached the cats to the card base using pieces of mounting tape.  I wanted them to appear to be chasing the birds.  I attached the flying bird at the top of the scene between the two cats with a piece of mounting tape.  The bird on the fence and the one on the grass in front of the watering can were attached with rolled up glue dots.

I hope you have been inspired to get your supplies out and create your own die cut window scene with cats and birds.  I had so much fun making this card and combining all the different dies.  The scene possibilities are endless.  Thanks for coming by today.

Window Card with Flower Pots

I have a pretty window card with flower pots to share with you today using dies made by Rubbernecker Stamps.  Before I start my post let me draw your attention to the Rubbernecker 10% off sale.  This is a great opportunity to check off  items on your Rubbernecker wish list.  See the banner below for the coupon code to use at check out.

RN Sale

This card was made using the Rubbernecker 5148-02D Window Pierce Die5148-02D Window Pierce Die, 5141D Nested Rectangle Scallop w/ Holes, 5128D Tree Panel, 5118D Leaf Group, 5147-16D Tall Terracotta Pots, 5147-09D Flower Buds Die, 5147-10D Tiny Flower Buds, 5147-05D Flower Stems, 5147-08D Small Butterflies and 5152-03D Grass Set.

Come see how I made this window card with flower pots that would be perfect for any occasion.

The Window Frame, Grass and Branches

I applied double tick tape to the back of the window frame and attached the small branch from the tree panel and grass sections.  I cut thin strips of mounting tape and attached to the back of the window frame and attached it to the scalloped layer. The scalloped layer and window frame was attached to the white card base using pieces of mounting tape.

Coloring the Pots

The flower pots were cut out using yellow cardstock.  When applying the color to the pots the yellow shows through to help create the appearance of terracotta.  I used mini applicators to apply the inks and started by applying a fine layer of Wild Honey ink over the whole pot and then applied Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo to add depth of color to create the old aged looking pots. 

 

Come see how I made this window card with flower pots that would be perfect for a garden lover.

The Flowers and Foliage

I cut a Leaf Group section and cut the pieces apart to create the foliage base for the largest pot and attached the pieces to the back of the pot using glossy accents.  I cut several pieces of the flower stems to create the foliage base for the smaller pots and attached them to the back of the pots using glossy accents.

Forming the Flowers

I cut both sizes of flowers and used my stylus and molding pad to form them.  I used the larger flowers for the large pot of foliage and attached them with glossy accents.  I used the tiny flowers for the smaller pots and tree branches and attached them with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this window card with flower pots that would be perfect for a flower lover.

Completing the Window Card with Flower Pots

The pots were gently rounded using my fingers and were attached to the card base using pieces of mounting tape.  Tiny butterflies were attached using glossy accents to complete the scene.

Do you love making flower themed cards?  I sure do!!  I hope you have been inspired by my window card with flower pots to get your toys out and create a pretty card of your own.

Die Cut Window Scene With Flowers

Making die cut window scenes with flowers is so much fun for me.  I usually use lots of additional die cut scenery images that create a detailed dimensional scene.  But there is something so pretty about a window with flowers against a clean and simple background.  My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge to create a card with a colorful background.  I thought yellow was the perfect spring color to use with the addition of the green foliage and colorful flowers.  I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Carolina Windows and Shutters paired with Impression Obsession Foliage and Tiny Flowers.

Die cut window scenes with flowers are so cheerful on a card front.

I began by apply strips of mounting tape to the scalloped layer and window and attached them to the card front. The window box was made using the two shutters from the set.  I laid one over the top of the other until I had exactly the width that I wanted and then cut them right down the middle.  I tossed the two left over pieces of shutters, turned the two pieces with the rounded sides face down, secured them in place with double tick tape.  I applied mounting tape to the back of the window box (shutters) and attached it to the card base at the base of the window.

Die cut window scenes with flowers are so fun to make.

The foliage pieces were cut apart to create several branches.  I used one long piece of foliage to hide the seam where the two sections of shutters were attached together and you’d never know it wasn’t one full piece.  I always look for different ways to use my dies. I filled in the window box with foliage and flowers and attached them with glossy accents. The window box of flowers made the card front a little bottom heavy so I inserted a few birds in the scene to draw the eye up for the finishing touch.Die cut window scene with flowers.

Thanks so much for coming by today. I hope you have been inspired to make your own version of a clean and simple die cut window scene with flowers for Easter, Mother’s Day or a Birthday card.

Fall Window Scene

Good Friday morning.  It’s been quite a while since I made a window card.  I was looking through my stash of dies yesterday and found the My Favorite Things Classic Window set, brand new to me and never been opened.  I remember shopping and seeing this set and purchasing because I just “had”  to have it!    A few months later I  find it and realize I had never even taken it out of the wrapper.  Am I the only one that has this issue?  I doubt it very seriously because  most of the paper crafters I know are just as compulsive as me.  LOL!  So I decided to create a window card using fall colors and I really love how this turned out. The background was embossed using the Taylored Expressions Subway Tile embossing folder (another must have item purchased and never used). The scene was completed using the Impression Obsession Branches Corner, Tiny Flowers, Pumpkin Patch and the Lawn Fawn  Grassy Border.

KC My Favorite Things Classic Window 1 right

I started by brayering ink on the inside of the embossing folder and embossing the background.  I heat set the ink and then used the window die as a template to draw cutting lines for the see through window.  I used my kraft knife to cut the opening and then used thin strips of mounting tape to attach the window over the opening.  I attached a little green ribbon with glue dots on each of the drapery pieces and then attached them to the back of the of the window layer with double stick tape. I cut a couple green Branches Corner sections and cut the little branches apart and used them to fill the flower box with foliage  using glossy accents to attach them in place. I lightly sponged orange ink on the tiny flowers and used a brown marker to fill in the centers.  I used my stylus and molding pad to form the flowers and attached them to the foliage using glossy accents. The shutters were attached flat to the card base using double stick tape.

 KC My Favorite Things Classic Window 1 center

I attached two sections of grass using mounting tape.  I sponged orange ink on the pumpkins and used a green marker for the tops.  The pumpkins were attached in place using pieces of mounting tape.  I cut a Branches Corner in white and colored the branches using a brown Copic marker.  I lightly sponged orange and red on all the leaves and then added tips of green on several of them using a green marker.  The branch section was attached using mounting tape.  I cut the lowest branch off so it wouldn’t totally cover the window and attached it to another area using glossy accents.

I had originally planned on using a piece of green striped designer paper behind the window but the orange made the whole scene pop.  I attached the window scene to the orange layer using double layers mounting tape and then attached the whole scene to the card base using double stick tape.

Welcome to My Garden

Good Monday morning.  I have a fun garden scene project to share with you today using the new Impression Obsession Garden Furniture paired with the Wrought Iron Fence, Window with Shutter, Grass Border, Leafy Branch and Tiny Flowers.

KC Impression Obsession Garden Furniture 1 left

I started the scene by attaching a double layer of grass border to a thin strip of cardstock with double stick tape.  I applied another layer of double stick tape to the back of the grass border and attached it to the bottom of the card base.  I cut two strips of designer paper for curtains, crimped them and attached to the back of the window with double stick tape. The window was then attached to the card base with double stick tape.  I wanted the open gates to be an invitation into the scene.  I cut a small amount off both sides of the gates so make them fit the scene. I cut thin strips of cardstock to attached to the sides of the gates and then attached them both to the card base with double stick tape.  The table and chair were set in place and attached with rolled glue dots.

KC Impression Obsession Garden Furniture 1 center

I used my stylus and molding pad to form the tiny flowers and attached them to the leafy branch piece and along the grass border with glossy accents.  I applied rolled glue dots to several key spots on the back of the branch and attached it to the window and card base.  Looking at this now as I write my post I wish I had added a couple butterflies.  They would have been a perfect finish.  Oh well….next time!

Pink Ink Cutie Pies

Good Sunday morning.  My project today is a sweet baby card made using the new Impression Obsession  Cutie Pies Stamp Set  and  Cutie Pies Die Set by Pink Ink.  These are such cute images and are perfect for making baby cards or kids birthday cards.  I thought the bear and bunny would look sweet in a window scene.  I used the Art Impressions Watercolor Tree Set for the small tree in the background scene and pulled out my  retired Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Minis fern stamp to add the leaves and grassy area.  The window valance was made using the Impression Obsession Border Duo 1 die and the window was made using the Poppystamps Grand Madison Window.

KC Impression Obsession Pink Ink Cutie Pies 1 right

I secured  my watercolor paper in my MISTI, attached the stamps in place, applied black versafine ink and stamped.  I’m so glad I used my MISTI because I didn’t get a perfect impression the first time.  I reapplied ink and stamped the second time leaving a perfect image.  I heat set the versafine with my heat gun to make sure I wouldn’t have any smudging when I began to paint.  I applied Memento marker inks on my acrylic block  to use as a palette and picked up the color with my waterbrush and painted the images.  I cut the images out with the coordinating dies and then trimmed off the edges.

I applied ATG adhesive to the back of the polka dot paper and attached it to the card base. I scored the white bottom portion of the card base every 1/4” and applied it to the base using ATG adhesive.  I used the die cut window as a template and traced lines along the outer edges of the window opening to use a a guide for cutting out the opening.  I cut the opening using my craft knife. You can see step by step pictures of this process on my blog in my See Thru Window tutorial.  I attached thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window and set it in place over the window. I cut the decorative window valance and attached with ATG adhesive.

KC Impression Obsession Pink Ink Cutie Pies 1 center

I applied brown ink to the tree stamp, lightly dabbed off some of the ink on the upper branches with a rag and stamped.  I applied a light touch of brown reinker to my waterbrush and filled in the tree trunk.  I applied light green ink to the tiny fern stamp and stamped several times to create a light green base for the tree top.  I filled in the tree top using darker green ink.  I sponged darker green ink on the ground area and filled in with the fern stamp.  I added a touch of blue fern image for flowers.  I heat set the green ink and then sponged on the blue sky area. I attached the scene to the inside of the card using mounting tape.  I finished by attaching the two Cutie Pies in place on the window sill with rolled up glue dots.
