Impression Obsession “It’s a Guy Thing” Challenge

My die cut nautical anchor and stars project today was made for the Impression Obsession “It’s a Guy Thing” design team challenge to create a masculine card.  I used the Anchor and Stars sets for my clean and simple card. 

Come and see how I made this clean and simple die cut nautical anchor and stars card.

The Anchor and Stars

I cut the anchor in both red and white cardstock.  I trimmed the white rope off and attached the pieces of rope to the red anchor using glossy accents.  The stars were cut using red cardstock. 

The Crimped Layer

Crimpers were a big deal when I first began paper crafting back in 2003.  Although they are not really popular to use any more I still keep mine close at hand in my craft room because I love to use it to add dimension and interest like on my card today.  I cut the white layer, tucked it in my crimper and rolled it through.  I attached it to the red layer using double stick tape and then attached both to the white card base using strips of mounting tape. 

Come and see how I made this fun and simple die cut nautical anchor and stars card.

Assembling the Die Cut Nautical Anchor and Stars

Both the anchor and stars were attached to the crimper layer using small pieces of mounting tape.  I think popping images up rather than attaching them flat adds lots more interest to the project.

Come and see how I made this simple and fun die cut nautical anchor and stars card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my clean and simple die cut nautical anchor and stars card.  Why don’t you come along and play in the challenge.  You can check out all the details for the challenge on the Impression Obsession blog.   You will definitely want to check out all of the masculine projects by the design team.

Die Cut Woody and Surf Boards for DTGD Day 5

My project today is a die cut Woody and Surf Boards card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 5 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 woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this sunny die cut woody and surf boards card.

The Sand, Water and Sky Background

The sand was created using Antique Linen ink, a stylus tool and foam tip.  Next, I used Tumbled Glass ink to create a darker shade for the  water and attempted to make it look like high rolling waves for surfing, and then applied a lighter shade of blue using the same ink and a cloud template.  I heat dried the ink and then applied white embossing paste to the water area to create the appearance of sea foam and then sprinkled it with clear glitter to add sparkle.

The Frame

The frame was cut using the Impression Obsession Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames.  I turned the frames face down and attached the two pieces together using double stick tape.  Next, I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it over the beach scene background.

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this bright and sunny die cut woody and surf boards card.

The Woody and Plane

The Woody was cut using both red and woodgrain cardstock.  The different sections were turned face down and attached together using double stick tape.  I wanted the tires to look a little oversized so I used a circle punch to cut two black circles and then attached the red die cut wheels with glossy accents. I cut the surfboard twice in yellow and blue and attached to the top of the car with double stick tape.

The plane was cut using bright yellow cardstock and the banner was cut using white cardstock.  I cut two thin strips of red cardstock and attached them to the plane using glossy accents to add interest and break up the yellow.  I used a black marker to hand write the Surf’s Up sentiment on the banner.

Assembling the Die Cut  Woody and Surf Boards

I cut one section of the beach fence and applied Vintage Photo ink to color it.  I cut a few sections of the Small Grass using green cardstock.  I cut the beach fence in half and gently bent the sections to create an old appearance.  I tucked the fence sections in behind the frame and attached them in place with glossy accents.  Next, I tucked the grass sections behind and around the fence sections and attached with glossy accents. The Woody, plane and banner were attached to the frame using mounting tape to complete the scene.

I woudl like to invite you to come see how I made this bright die cut woody and surf boards card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut Woody and surf boards beach scene card.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

Die Cut Lattice and Butterfly Card for DTGD Day 4

My project today is a die cut lattice and butterfly card made for Dare To Get Dirty Day 4 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.

Come see how I made this clean and simple die cut lattice and butterfly card.

The Stenciled Pattern

I don’t often use a stenciling technique but thought it would be fun to see if I could use the lattice die cut to create a nice pattern.  I cut the Circle Lattice Die using a 4.5″ piece of scratch cardstock. The die is only two inches wide and I wanted to double the size so I line the die up along the first cut line and cut a second time to create a 4″ square die cut.  I placed the die cut lattice over a piece of white cardstock to use as a stencil and secured in place using painter’s tape.  Next, I used a stylus tool and foam tip along with Tumbled Glass ink to create the lattice pattern on the cardstock layer.  Once I was finished I heat set the ink with my heat gun. 

The Frame

I cut a Square Combo frame using the patterned cardstock and cut a second frame using white cardstock.  I turned the white and patterned frame layers face down and attached them all together using double stick tape.  Next, I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the 5″ square card base.

Come see how I made this simple die cut lattice and butterfly card.

The Butterfly and Flowers

I cut both sections of the 2 Part Butterfly #2 using white cardstock.  Next, I applied Tumbled Glass to the base butterfly using the stylus and foam tip.  I applied the blue ink to a scratch piece of white cardstock and cut tiny flowers using the Flower Buds die.  I cut several pieces of Flower Stems to use along with the flowers to embellish the butterfly.  I used my molding pad and stylus to form the tiny flowers.

Die Cut Lattice and Butterfly Card

I attached the white decorative layer of the butterfly to the blue base using glossy accents.  Next, I attached white flower stems to the butterfly using glossy accents to create a base for the flowers.  I used glossy accents to attach flowers and then attached the whole embellished butterfly to the lattice frame using a piece of mounting tape.  I finished by applying small dots of glossy accents to the flower centers and attaching white pre made Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Come see how I made this bright die cut lattice and butterfly card.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut lattice and butterfly card.  It was lots of fun creating my lattice stenciled frame to match the lattice die cut and I have been inspired with lots of ideas for using some of my other dies to create stencils for future projects.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
