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.

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

Clean and Simple Pine Christmas Cards

Rubbernecker Stamps October Sale

Good Sunday morning.  I have two clean and simple pine Christmas cards to share with you today made using the new Rubbernecker Twigs die.  For my first card I used the twigs to create a small pine wreath and paired it with the Window 4 Pane die and embellished the wreath with a bright red multi loop bow.. 

Come see how I make pretty clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

The Window and Card Base

  • Cut a piece of green designer paper 4.25″ x 2.75″ and attach it to the top of the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut a piece of white card stock 4.25″ x 3.00″, score it every .25″ across the paper using your Scor-Pal and attach to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Cut two windows using white cardstock.
  • Use the window as a template to draw cut lines on the card base.
  • Cut the opening on the card base using your craft knife.  Cut about 1/8″ outside the drawn cut lines.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the window and attach over the front opening of the card base.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back f the second window and attach it to the inside opening of the card base.

The Wreath

  • Cut a circle wreath base using green cardstock.
  • Cut several sets of the Twigs.
  • Trim off the top half of the twigs to make small enough for this wreath size.
  • Attach the twigs to the wreath base using glossy accents. Alternate the the direction of the twigs, one left, one right and one center and continue all the way around the wreath. 
  • Create a multi loop bow and attach it to the wreath using glue dots.
  • Attach the wreath to the lower window using glossy accents.
  • You can check out my wreath video and step by step tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.

Come see how I make clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

My second card paired the Twigs with the Borders #3.  I created a pine twig bough on the pretty white layer and embellished it with a red multi loop bow.

Come see how I make lovely clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

The Scalloped Layer

  • Cut the Borders #3 using white cardstock.
  • Attach the layer to the card base using strips of mounting tape.

The Pine Twigs Bough

  • Cut several sets of the Twigs die using green cardstock.
  • Begin attaching twigs in the center of the white layer using glossy accents, alternating the twigs left and right to create the the bough base.
  • Trim off the bottom third of several twigs and attach them to fill in over top of the base to create a full bough.
  • Create a multi loop red bow and attach to the bough with glue dots.

Come see how I make elegant clean and simple pine Christmas cards.

I had fun making these die cut pine Christmas cards.  As much as I love creating detailed scene or floral projects with lots of part and pieces, it is always nice to make several clean and simple cards to have on hand for those last minute card needs.  Today is the last day of the Rubbernecker sale.  Be sure and check out all the new dies that I have used over the last several posts. Thanks so much for coming by.

Good Saturday morning.  I have a die cut window and Adirondack chair scene card to share with you today along with a simple framed Adirondack chair scene card.  The first scene was made using the new Rubbernecker Window 4 Pane, Beach Chairs, Tree Panel #2, Leaf Group, Flower Buds, Tiny Flower Buds and Small Birds.

  • Cut the opening on the card base using a craft knife.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape all the way around the back side of the window and set aside.

Come see how I made this tranquil die cut window and adirondack chair scene card.

  • Cut a piece of white cardstock 5.00″ x 3.75″.
  • Create a cloud background using a cloud stencil, Tumbled Glass ink and an ink blending tool.

  • Attach thin strips of mounting tape all the way around the front of the cloud base and attach it over the opening on the inside of the card base.
  • I believe the Papertrey designer paper I used on the card base is retired.

Complete the Die Cut Window and Adirondack Chair Scene

  • Cut a beach chair and small birds using blue cardstock.
  • Cut flower buds and tiny flower buds using pink cardstock.
  • Cut a section of the leaf group using green cardstock.

  • Finish the card by placing the window over the scene and attaching to the card base.
  • Hint:   I kept placing the window over the opening as I attached the chair, foliage and birds to make sure they would be seen well when the window was attached.

Come see how I made this peaceful die cut window and adirondack chair scene card.

My second card was made using the Rectangle Combo #2, Beach Chairs, Grass, Leaf Group, Flower Buds and Small Birds.

Die Cut Window Scene

I have a clean and simple die cut window scene card to share with you today using the new Rubbernecker Window 4 Pane, Small Ivy and the Tiny Flower Buds.  I created the indoor scene looking out the window to the ivy and flowers growing around the outside of the window.  I made a simple cloudy blue sky background for the outside of the window.  The designer paper is from a retired Papertrey pattern pack.

Come see how I made this elegant die cut window scene with ivy and flowers.

The Wainscoting and Paper Background

  • Cut white cardstock 4.25″ wide and score every 1/4″ inch across to create the wainscoting.
  • Cut a piece of designer paper 4.25″ wide and attach it to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the wainscoting and attach to the card base and overlapping the designer paper.

The Window

  • Cut the window using white cardstock.
  • Cut a 1/4″ strip of white cardstock and run through the crimper.
  • Use the window as a template to draw cutting lines on the card base.
  • Cut the window opening using a craft knife.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window and attach it over the opening.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the 1/4″ strip of cardstock and tuck it under the window and attach it to create a chair rail to cover where the white and blue paper meet..

Come see how I made this elegant die cut window scene with ivy and flowers.

The Ivy and Flowers

  • Cut a few sets of the ivy using green cardstock and a set of the tiny flower buds using blue cardstock.
  • Trim off the stems of the ivy to fit inside the window.
  • Apply glossy accents to the ivy pieces and attach to the inside opening of the window.
  • Form the tiny flowers using a tiny tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Apply glossy accents to the tiny flowers and attach them to the ivy.

The Cloudy Sky Background

  • Cut a piece of cardstock large enough to cover the inside opening of the window.
  • Apply blue cloud background using a cloud template, Tumbled Glass ink and an ink blending tool.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape around the window opening and attach the blue sky background.

Come see how I made this elegant die cut window scene with ivy and flowers.

I love to make die cut window scene cards.  Whether it is creating an indoor scene looking out or and outdoor scene looking in.  They are both equally fun to make.  I hope you have been inspired to pull out your window dies and see what you can come up with.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Essentials by Ellen October Release

Ellen Oct 2018 available

My project today is a fun window scene card made using the new Winter Window set from the Essentials by Ellen October release.  I wanted my window to appear from the inside of the house looking out at the snowy scene.  I embellished the scene with lots of packages made from the Holiday Shopper Lady Stamps

 

Come see how I made this holiday card using the Winter Window set from the Essentials by Ellen October release.

The Card Base

  • Cut a piece of designer paper 4.25″ x 3.00″ and a piece of white cardstock 4.25″ x 2.75″.
  • Use the Scor-Pal to score lines every 1/4″ across the white cardstock to create wainscoting for the lower portion of the card.
  • Attach decorative cardstock and scored cardstock to the card base using double stick tape.

The See Through Window Scene and Trim

  • Cut a window using white cardstock.
  • Use the window as a template to draw cutting lines on the card base.
  • Use a craft knife to cut along the lines to create the window opening.
  • Cut two white snow ground sections using the ground dies.
  • Cut two sets of evergreen trees.
  • Attach a piece of blue polka dot cardstock to a piece of white cardstock to create the sky background.
  • Attach the two snow sections to the blue background using double stick tape.
  • Attach the background scenery to the inside opening of the card using strips of mounting tape.
  • Tuck the trees in between the snow layers and attach in place with small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window and attach it over the front opening.
  • Cut a strip of cardstock 1/4″ wide and run through the crimper to create a chair rail section and tuck in behind the window and attach with double stick tape.
  • Cut a strip of cardstock 1/2″ wide and run through the crimper to create a baseboard section and attach along the floor line with a piece of double stick tape.

Come see how I made this Christmas card using the Winter Window set from the Essentials by Ellen October release.

The Presents

  • Secure designer paper and package stamps in the MISTI and stamp using black versafine.
  • Apply clear super fine embossing powder and heat with heat gun.
  • Cut out the packages using snips, arrange  on the card base and attach with pieces of mounting tape.

 

Come see how I made this fun holiday card using the Winter Window set from the Essentials by Ellen October release.

Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you you have enjoyed seeing my card made using the Winter Window and Holiday Shopper Lady set from the new Essentials by Ellen October release.
