Chicken Die Cuts Farm Scene

Good Friday morning.  I had such a fun time coloring all these chicken die cuts to create my “little red hen” farm scene.  I framed the scene using the Rubbernecker 5131D Square Combo #1 OPC Die layered with scalloped pieces using the 5028D Nested Rectangle Scallop Die.  The scene was created using the 5126D Tree Panel #1, 5142-03D Chicken Squirrels Die Set and 5114D Mini Flower Stack.

Chicken die cuts make such a fun outdoor scene.

The Frame and Tree Panel

I cut the frame sections and attached them together on the back using double stick tape.  I hand cut a strip of green grass using my deckle scissors and attached it to the back of the frame.  Thin strips of mounting tape were attached to the back of the frame.  I trimmed off the excess tree panel to make it fit behind the frame and attached it to the strips of mounting tape and then attached it to the blue background card base.

Chicken die cuts make such a fun farm scene.

Coloring the Chicken Die Cuts

The chickens were cut out using white cardstock.  I used Sofft mini applicators to apply Wild Honey, Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink to layer color on the chickens. 

Finishing the Scene

The chickens were tucked in behind the grass section and attached to the scene using mounting tape. I cut pieces off of a second tree panel die to use as foliage sprigs and attached them all around the chickens and base of the scene.  I formed the tiniest red circles from the Mini Flower Stack and 1/8″ punched circles to create the flowers.  I attached them all around the scene using glossy accents.

Chicken die cuts make such a fun outdoor farm scene.

Don’t forget to check out the sale going on over at Rubbernecker Stamps. The sale ends on the 14th.

Do you like making outdoor scene cards?  I had lots of fun using the chicken die cuts but this same scene could be created using any die cut animal.  I hope you have been inspired to get your dies out to play.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great weekend.

You Are The Very Best Sentiment

Good Thursday morning.  My card today was made using the You are the Very Best sentiment from the Rubbernecker Stamps Best Friends set. I rarely use sentiments as the main focal point of my card but when I do I like to embellish them with frames and flowers.  I paired the sentiment with the 5019D Nested Rounded Corner Rectangle with Pierce Die, 5023D Nested Rectangle with Pierce, 5132D Rectangle Combo #2 OPC Die, 5112D Mixable Flower Stack and 5110D Small Leaf Group.

You are the very best sentiment is perfect to use for congratulations cards.

The Flowers and Foliage

I cut two sets of flowers.   I formed each flower petal using my needle nose pliers, curling some edges forwards and some edges backwards to create a more natural looking flower.  I attached the flower layers together using glossy accents and finished by adhering a pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drop in each with glossy accents.  The foliage leaves were gently formed using my fingers. 

You are the Very Best Sentiment

I secured the sentiment stamp and cardstock in my MISTI, applied black versafine ink and stamped the sentiment twice to get a perfect image.  I LOVE MY MISTI! Next, I applied clear embossing powder to the sentiment and heat embossed.

You are the very best sentiment is perfect to use on thank you cards.

Building the Layers

I had a few parts and pieces from other projects on my desk so I used them to create different frame layers.  I attached the yellow pierced background layer to the white scalloped layer using ATG adhesive.  Next I used rolled up double stick tape to attached the pierced frame layer.  I attached the pierced rounded sentiment layer to the card base using mounting tape.  I finished by arranging and attaching the foliage leaves and flowers to the corner of the sentiment layer using glossy accents.

 

You are the very best sentiment is perfect to use for thank you cards.

Be sure to check out the  sale going on over at Rubbernecker Stamps.  The dies and stamps that I used today are all 15%.

Birdhouse, Birds and Flowers Scene

Good Wednesday morning.  Today I have birdhouse, birds and flowers scene card to share with you using the Rubbernecker 5142-05D Birds Die, 5114D Mini Flower Stack, 5122D Rectangle Stitch OPC Die, 5126D Tree Panel #1 Die, 5030 Nested Oval Scallop Die and 5131 Square Combo #1 OPC Die.  You can find all of these dies included in the sale going on over at Rubbernecker. Click on the ad below for more information about the sale.

A birdhouse, birds and flowers make such a pretty card front scene.

The Tree, Grass and Frame

I cut the tree panel out using white cardstock and colored it with brown and green Copic markers.  The scalloped oval section was cut in half and trimmed down to fit in behind the frame.  I attached the two frame sections together on the back using double stick tape and attached the scalloped grass sections.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame, trimmed the tree panel to fit and attached it to the mounting tape.  I applied double stick tape to the back of the tree panel and frame and attached it to the blue card base.

A birdhouse, birds and flowers make such a lovely card front scene.

Birdhouse, Birds and Flowers

I hand cut the tiny birdhouse using brown wood grain cardstock and punched a 1/8″ circle in it to create the birdhouse opening. I punched a 1/8″ circle in a piece of scrap cardstock, trimmed around the circle with my deckle scissors to create the white frame for the opening and attached it with glossy accents. I cut a corner section and straight section of scalloped frame border and attached them to the birdhouse using mounting tape.  Check out my Die Cut Birdhouse Video to see how I used parts and pieces of frame dies to create the birdhouse.

I attached the birdhouse to the card base with a piece of mounting tape.  I cut another tree panel in green and cut the branches apart to use as flower stems.  I used my small tipped stylus and molding pad to form the tiny flowers and then I attached them to the branches using glossy accents.  I tucked the flower branches in behind the scalloped grass borders and attached with glossy accents. 

The birds were attached to the scene using pieces of mounting tape.  I finished by attaching one tiny flower and a couple small branches to the birdhouse using glossy accents.  I love how the red flowers and red birds pop against the blue background, white frame and green grass.A birdhouse, birds and flowers make such a nature filled card front scene

You can see more of my cards using Rubbernecker dies in the Kittie Kraft card gallery
