Scarecrow and Pumpkins Card

Today I’m sharing a scarecrow and pumpkins card made using several newly released dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I used the Scarecrow, Baskets, Pumpkins and Ivy, Corn Stalks, Birds, Deckle Hills and Rectangle Combo #4

Before I start my description I would like to invite all of you who live in the Chicago area to come over to the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Schaumburg this weekend.  I am excited to be demonstrating dies in the Rubbernecker Stamps booth.  And, I’m very excited that Ken Oliver will be demonstrating his wonderful Color Burst products in the Rubbernecker booth as well. 

Come see how I made this scarecrow and pumkins card.

The Frame, Ground Layer and Corn Stalks

  • Cut the frame sections using white cardstock and the ground layers using green cardstock.
  • Attach the three frame sections together using double stick tape.
  • Attach the grass layer to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the blue sky layer card base.
  • Cut the cornstalks using green cardstock, tuck them in behind the grass layers and attach using glossy accents. 

The Scarecrow

  • Cut the scarecrow parts using a variety of designer paper and cardstock colors.
  • Assemble the parts and pieces using double stick tape, glossy accents and mounting tape.
  • Attach the scarecrow to the woodgrain stakes, tuck in behind the corn stalks and attach to the card base using mounting tape.

The Basket and Pumpkins

  • Cut the basket using woodgrain cardstock and apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink with mini applicators to add depth of color.
  • Cut the pumpkins using yellow cardstock.
  • Apply Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge ink to the pumpkins using mini applicators.
  • Color the stems using a brown marker.
  • Attach three pumpkins to the back of the basket using mounting tape.
  • Tuck the basket of pumpkins in behind the grass layer and attach using mounting tape.
  • Tuck the loose pumpkins around the basket and attach using mounting tape.
  • Add a touch of softness around the pumpkins by attaching a few smaller corn stalks using glossy accents.
  • Finish the scene by attaching the black crows using small pieces of mounting tape.

Scarecrow Z Fold Box Card

My project today is a scarecrow Z Fold Box card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 2 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.

I used several of the newly released dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  I used the Scarecrow, Corn Stalks, Pumpkins and Ivy, Apples, Corn and Pears, Picket Fence, Wheelbarrow, Grass and Birds.  I used the new Cloud Stencil for the sky background and the card base was made using The Paper Cuts Easel Card Base.  I love the Z Fold Box card because the layout allows me to build so much dimension to the scene.  The multiple layers of cornstalks creates a full looking cornfield and the scarecrow standing tall in the box draws the eye in to the scene.

Come see how I made this fun scarecrow z fold box card.

The Card Base

  • Cut three pieces of white pieces of white cardstock to fit on the three sections of the card base,  apply clouds to the layers using an ink blending tool, cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass ink and attach to the card base using ATG adhesive.  Cut two 2.50″ x 4.00″ and one 5.25″ x 4.00″.
  • Cut several sections of the Crass using green cardstock to create the grass layers and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
    • Cut two grass sections 2.50″ x approximately 2.00″ tall and one 5.25″ x approximately 2.00″ tall.
    • Cut three grass  sections 3.75″ wide x approximately 2.00″ tall.
    • Score the insert layers .50″ in from each end. and set aside.
    • Cut one grass layer 11.00″ x approximately 2.00″ and a second one 11.00″ x about 3/4′.  I cut the cardstock piece at 11.00″ inches, placed the die and ran through the machine. I lined up the die where the first cut ended and ran it through a second time to create the full 11.00″ piece.
    • Score the 11.00″ grass layer at 5.50 and 8.25″.
    • Apply ATG adhesive to the back portion of the 11.00″ layer and attach to the card base. Apply to the first 2.75″ on the back left and the last 2.75″ on the back right side.
    • Apply double stick tape to the insert grass layers and attach them in place in the box.
  • Cut several fence sections using woodgrain cardstock, attach them together using glossy accents, score them at at 5.50″ and 8.25″ and attach to the grass layer using double stick tape.
  • Attach the front grass layer using double stick tape.

 

Come check out how I made this scarecrow z fold box card.

The Corn Field

  • Cut several sections of the corn stalks using green cardstock.
  • Tuck them in behind the grass layers on the front, side and back sections of the card base and attach using glossy accents.
  • Fill the box section with corn stalks and attach them to the insert layers using glossy accents.

The Scarecrow

  • Cut the scarecrow using multiple colors of cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Cut the crows using black cardstock and attach them to the arms of the scarecrow using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the lower portion of the scarecrow and attach him in place to one of the insert layers. Note:  I reinforced the the scarecrow with an addition strip of cardstock going up it’s back to hold him straight up.

The Wheelbarrow of Corn

  • Cut the wheelbarrow using gray and black cardstock.
  • Color the handles using a black marker.
  • Color the wheelbarrow using Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo to distress and age.
  • Attach the wheel to the wheelbarrow using glossy accents.
  • Cut the corn using yellow cardstock and corn husks using green cardstock and attach the husk to the corn using glossy accents .
  • Attach the corn sections to the back of the wheelbarrow using double stick tape and glossy accents.

The Pumpkins and Crows

  • Cut several pumpkins using yellow cardstock.
  • Color the stems using a brown marker.

  • Slightly round the pumpkins with your fingers, apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of each and tuck in behind the grass  and attach to the fence layer.

Christmas in July Z Fold Snowman Card

Today I’m celebrating “Christmas in July” with a fun Z Fold Snowman card made using several dies by Rubbernecker Stamps and the The Paper Cut Easel Card Base kit.  I used the Snowman, Pine Tree Forest, Tree in Oval, Deckle Hills, Wagon, Small Birds and Tiny Leaves to create this fun winter scene. 

Come over to my blog to see how I made this Z Fold snowman card.

The Card Base

  • Cut a piece of blue cardstock 11″ x 5.50″ .
  • Cut several sections of the Deckle Hills using white cardstock to create the snow layers and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
    • Cut two Deckle Hills sections 2.50″ x approximately 2.00″ tall and one 5.25″ x approximately 2.00″ tall. Attach the pieces to the card base using ATG adhesive.
    • Cut four Deckle Hills sections 3.75″ wide x approximately 2.00″ tall.
    • Score the insert layers .50″ in from each end and set aside.
    • Cut one Deckle Hills layer 11.00″ x approximately 2.00″.  Note:  I cut the cardstock piece at 11.00″ inches, placed the die and ran through the machine. I lined up the die where the first cut ended and ran it through a second time to create the full 11.00″ piece.
    • Score the 11.00″ Deckle Hills layer at 5.50 and 8.25″.
    • Apply ATG adhesive to the back portion of the 11.00″ layer and attach to the card base. Apply to the first 2.75″ on the back left and the last 2.75″ on the back right side.
  • Cut several Pine Tree Forest and two Tree Tree in Oval  sections using green cardstock.  Cut the large trees away from the oval to use in the back of the scene.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this fun Z Fold snowman card.

Assemble the Snowman and Wagon full of Snowman Parts

  • Cut the snowman parts using white, black, red, green, woodgrain and orange cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces to form the snowman using glossy accents.
  • Attach tiny holly leaves and red berries to the hats and scarf using glossy accents.
  • Cut the wagon using red and black cardstock and attach the pieces using glossy accents.
  • Cut additional snowman parts in red, black, green, woodgrain and orange cardstock and loosely assemble them and attach to the wagon using mounting tape and glossy accents.

Assemble the Z Fold Snowman Card

  • Tuck the trees in behind the snow layers and attach to the card base using rolled up glue dots.
  • Apply double stick tape to the edges of the insert layers.  Fold the left scored side toward the back of the card and the right scored side to the front of the card. Attach the layers to the box portion of the card.
  • Attach the trees to the insert layers using double stick tape. 
  • Tuck the two small snowmen in behind the snow layers on both sides of the card and attach using mounting tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower front portion of the large snowman and attach him to the insert layer.
  • Attach the wagon full of snowman parts to the front snow layer using mounting tape.
  • Attach snowflakes to the sky area, trees and images using Gina K Connect glue.  Hint:  I have several dies with eyelet borders so I save the circles from those when I cut to use as snowflakes.  I use the Gina K Connect glue to attach them instead of my favorite Glossy Accents  as it dries perfectly clear in case some of the glue spills out from under the snowflakes. 
  • Finish by attaching a few red birds to the scene for an additional touch of color using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this colorful Z Fold snowman card.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Z Fold Snowman card.  I took a close up picture of the wagon full snowman parts for you to see since they don’t really show up well in the other pictures.  I thought it was such a fun idea to make it look like there were lots more parts and pieces to build additional snowmen.  You can check out this snowman Pinterest link if you would like inspiration.  As hot as it is around the country it may be cooling for the soul to start making your winter holiday cards this weekend.  LOL!  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great Sunday.

Z Fold Birch and Deer

Good Tuesday morning.  Today I am sharing a Z fold birch and deer card.  I have had this tree scene idea rolling around in my head since I started playing with Z fold cards. I wasn’t sure I could make it work but it turned out to be quite easy.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Birch Forest paired with the Birch Trees, Deckle Hills, Deer Family, Leaf Group, Tiny Flower Buds and Small Birds to create the die cut scene.  I created the forest background scene using the 3 Pine Tree set, Fall Foliage set and Kittie Kits Outdoor Master set.  I used The Paper Cut Easel Card kit for the card base.

Come see how I made this spring Z fold birch and deer card.

The Background Scene

  • Attach Fall Tree stamp to an acrylic block.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink to the whole stamp and lightly touch the Vintage Photo ink pad to the lower portion of the trunk.
  • Stamp the tree three times across the card base.
  • Use the tiny fern image from the Outdoor Master to stamp Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Squeezed Lemonade ink to create the tree leaves.
  • Finish the background scene by stamping  several pine trees across the base using Peeled Paint ink.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass ink using an ink blending tool to create the blue sky area.

Come see how I made this summer Z fold birch and deer card.

The Deckle Hill Layers

  • Cut one Deckle Hills layer 11.00″ x approximately 1.50″. I cut the cardstock piece at 11.00″ inches, placed the die and ran through the machine. I lined up the die where the first cut ended and ran it through a second time to create the full 11.00″ piece.
  • Score the Deckle Hill layer at the 5.50″ and 8.25″ and set it aside to use on the front tree layer.
  • Cut a second Deckle Hill layer 5.3/8″ x 1.50″.
  • Attach the second piece to the right side of the card base using double stick tape.
  • Cut a third Deckle Hill layer 2.5/8″ x 1.50″
  • Attach the third piece to the inner fold section of the card base using double stick tape.
  • Cut four Deckle Hills sections 3.75″ wide x approximately 2.00″ tall.
  • Score the insert layers .50″ in from each end.
  • Apply double stick tape to each end of the insert layers. 
  • Attach the left side of the insert layers to the card base and allow the right side to remain free to attach later.

The Birch Tree Box Frame

  • Cut the Birch Forest die three times using white cardstock.
  • Apply light touches of Pumice Stone ink to the tree markings using a mini applicator.
  • Attach the three layers together using glossy accents, overlapping the frame edges to create the full 11″ inch tree base.
  • Score the tree layer at 5,50″ and 8.25″.
  • Attach the11.00″  Deckle Hill layer to the the tree base using double stick tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the right back side of the tree layer and attach to the scene base.
  • Apply double stick tape to the left back side of the tree layer and attach to the scene base.
  • Remove the double stick cover paper from the right side of the inserts layers and attach them to the inside of the tree layer.

Come see how I made this pretty Z fold birch and deer card.

Individual Birch Trees, Foliage and Flowers

  • Cut two sets of the individual Birch Trees.
  • Layer one st of the trees over top of the second and attach together using glossy accents.  Note:  Layering two trees together will create a stronger tree to stand up on their own inside the box.
  • Apply light touches of Pumice Stone ink to the tree markings using a mini applicator.
  • Apply glossy accents to the front bottom portion of the tree trunks and attach them to the grass insert layers.
  • Cut leaf group using green cardstock, cut the branches apart using snips.
  • Cut tiny yellow flower buds, form them using a stylus and molding pad and attach them to the foliage branches using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the flower branches behind the deckle hill layers and to the insert layers and attach using glossy accents.

Color the Deer and Complete the Scene

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen ink over the whole deer body.
  • Apply darker shades of Vintage Photo ink to the antlers, ears and body,
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the deer bodies and attach to the tree frame.
  • Attach a few small birds to finish the scene. 

Come see how I made this Z fold birch and deer card.

I am happy that my idea to use the Birch Forest die worked out so well to create my Z fold birch and deer card. The birch trees hide more of the background scene than I figured but I still like seeing them through the trees.  Thanks so much for  coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Z Fold Winter Scene Card

Good Saturday morning.  I had so much fun making Z fold cards over the last few weeks so I decided to pull out dies to make a Z fold winter scene card.  I used The Paper Cut Easel Card Base and Rubbernecker Stamps Tree in Oval, Pine Tree Forest, Cabin #1, Wildlife, Deckle Hills, Grass #2 and Small Birds. I love the cabin nestled back in the trees although it was a little hard to get a photo showing it well.

Come see how I made this Z fold winter scene card.

The Card Base

  • Cut three pieces of blue designer paper to fit on the three sections of the card base and attach using ATG adhesive.  Cut two 2.50″ x 4.00″ and one 5.25″ x 4.00″.
  • Cut several sections of the Deckle Hills using white cardstock to create the snow layers and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
    • Cut two Deckle Hills sections 2.50″ x approximately 2.00″ tall and one 5.25″ x approximately 2.00″ tall.
    • Cut four Deckle Hills sections 3.75″ wide x approximately 2.00″ tall.
    • Score the insert layers .50″ in from each end. and set aside.
    • Cut one Deckle Hills layer 11.00″ x approximately 2.00″.  I cut the cardstock piece at 11.00″ inches, placed the die and ran through the machine. I lined up the die where the first cut ended and ran it through a second time to create the full 11.00″ piece.
    • Score the 11.00″ Deckle Hills layer at 5.50 and 8.25″.
    • Apply ATG adhesive to the back portion of the 11.00″ layer and attach to the card base. Apply to the first 2.75″ on the back left and the last 2.75″ on the back right side.
  • Cut the grass sections using Kraft cardstock and apply Vintage Photo ink using a mini applicator.
  • Cut the small birds using red cardstock.
  • Cut the trees using green cardstock and color the tree trunks using a dark brown marker.

The Deer and Cabin

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Color the deer using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink and mini applicators.
  • Cut the cabin base using woodgrain cardstock and apply Vintage Photo using a mini applicator.
  • Cut the cabin roof using white cardstock and attach to the cabin using thin strips of mounting tape.
  • Attach the snow capped chimney to the cabin roof using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this snowy Z fold winter scene card.

Assemble the Z Fold Winter Scene

  • Tuck the trees in behind the snow layers and attach to the card base using rolled up glue dots.
  • Apply double stick tape to the edges of the insert layers.  Fold the left scored side toward the back of the card and the right scored side to the front of the card. Attach the layers to the box portion of the card.
  • Attach the cabin to the snow layer.  I cut a piece of cardstock to use as a brace and attached it to the bottom of the cabin using double stick tape. I applied double stick tape to the cabin brace section and attached it to the snow layer.
  • Attach a few of the trees to the snow insert layers and around the cabin using glossy accents.
  • Attach the brown grass sections to the snow insert layers using glossy accents.
  • Attach the deer to the scene base using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Finish by attaching a few red birds to the scene for an additional touch of color using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this lovely Z fold winter scene card.
