Impression Obsession Framed Bunny Scene

Good Thursday morning.  Have you checked out the Impression Obsession 15% off sale going on at Ellen Hutson? If not you should hop on over and check it out.

I have made so many bunny scene cards using the Impression Obsession Bunny Set but I can’t seem to help myself.  They are just so sweet and fun to use all three together. I like to create a fairly close area for them so I pulled out the Shaker Circle Frames to frame the scene. I used the Grass Border, Small Grass Border, Foliage set and the Tiny Flowers set to surround the bunnies in foliage and pretty flowers and added one tiny butterfly from the Butterfly Set.

I attached double stick tape to the back of the frame and attached the grass sections in place. I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base. I formed all the tiny flowers using my small tip stylus and molding pad.  I cut the full set of Foliage pieces and attached the tiny flowers to the branches using glossy accents.  I attached rolled glue dots to the back of a few key branch and flowers and applied glossy accents to the bottom of the stems and tucked them in behind the grass sections.

I cut the bunnies using white cardstock and applied Antique Linen and Vintage Photo using a mini applicator.  If you would like to see how I colored my bunnies you can a few step by step photos in my Coloring Die Cut Animals tutorial in the tutorial section on my blog.  I attached a couple tiny leaves and tiny flowers to the neck of each bunny with glossy accents.  The tiny flowers were made using a very small stylus and 1/8” circles.  They are just the perfect size to dress up the bunnies. Each bunny was set in place using a piece of mounting tape. I added a touch of sparkle to the flowers and butterfly using clear Wink of Stella. I wish it showed up better in the pictures.

Lawn Fawn Hillside Pop-Ups and Lawn Fawn Sale

Good Sunday morning.  I ordered several of the new Lawn Fawn dies from Ellen Hutson earlier this week and couldn’t wait to play with them.   I love making little scene projects and the new coordinating pop-up dies create so many different opportunities.   My project today was made using the Stitched Hillside Pop-up, Flower Hillside Pop-upGrassy Hillside Pop-up, Leafy Tree Backdrop Portrait and I added the Impression Obsession Bunny Set and Butterfly Set to finish my scene.   All of these coordinating pop-up dies have tabs built right into the die and made to use inside the card to create fun dimensional projects.  I couldn’t resist using on the front of my card and it was easy to remove the tabs.  I love that they can be used inside or out.

I have loved using the Tiny Check designer paper for my backgrounds lately.  It seems to add a happy feeling to the project.  I cut the paper to fit on the front of my A2 sized card base and attached it with ATG adhesive. The leafy tree was cut using Kraft cardstock and I removed the outer frame so I could let it be standing free in the scene.  I misted it with water until it quite damp and applied the brown ink by swiping the ink pad directly over the cardstock and dried with my heat gun.  I attached the leaves to the branches with glossy accents.  I cut tiny thin strips of mounting tape and attached to the tips of the tree limbs and upper back of the tree trunk and attached it to the card base.  I attached the lower part of the trunk flat to the card base so it wouldn’t get in the way of my hillside sections.  I cut the stitched hillside layer and grassy hillside layer in green and the flower hillside in white.  I colored the flower stems and flowers using Memento markers.  The flower hillside set comes with extra flowers and I cut several, formed them with my stylus and molding pad and attached them to the flower heads using glossy accents. I left the tulip flowers as a single layer.

I attached the grassy hillside layer flat to the back of the flower hillside layer using ATG adhesive.  I attached mounting tape to the back of those two sections and attached them to the card base. I applied mounting tape to the back of the hillside layer and attached it to the flower layer.  I I colored the bunny using a mini applicator and antique linen and vintage photo inks and added a couple tiny leaves and a flower to his neck and attached him in the scene with mounting tape. I added the butterflies in the scene for the finishing touch.  I applied clear Wink of Stella to all the flowers and butterflies but it doesn’t really show up well in the pictures.

Art Impression Old Barn

Good Saturday morning.  I have been trying to get up the nerve to try and play with the Art Impressions Old Barn Mini Set and today’s Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to put my big girl panties on and take the leap.  The Moleskine Pinterest page provided so much inspiration with lots and lots of watercolor artwork.  I also used the Art Impressions Watercolor Flower Set and Watercolor Foliage Set.  You can watch a wonderful video tutorial by Bonnie Krebs to see the steps to create the barn scene.  I learned a couple things while trying to accomplish making this a pretty scene.  I got way to heavy handed with my colors and need to back off a little.  I also learned that I need toi stop myself much earlier in the completion of my scene. I kept adding touches here and there that weren’t really necessary and made my scene look to heavy.

I watched Bonnie’s video and then followed the step by step instructions provided on the back page of the packaging. 

 Old Barn Instructions

I used several Memento markers to apply ink directly on the stamps and also applied ink on an acrylic block and used it for my palette.  I used a tiny brush to work on the images to pull the color out into the open spaces of the images. I used a larger brush to fill in the sky area around the trees and along the ground area.

I used My Favorite Things Pierced Rectangle Frames and Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames for create a double matted frame for my scene.

On the whole I like how this turned out especially for my first attempt.  I will do it again soon and use lighter colors and a lighter touch to create my scene.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Penny Black Birdhouse Abode

Good Monday morning.  I love making cards with birdhouse scenes and my project today was made with the Penny Black Birdhouse Abode die paired with the Impression Obsession Picket Fence, Grass Border, Tiny Flowers, Foliage and Cardinals.  The matted frames were made using the Nesting Rectangles.

I cut the whole birdhouse die out once in green and then cut just the house portion out in red and again in Kraft cardstock.  I cut a thin strip of Kraft cardstock just the width of the wooden pole, applied vintage photo ink with a mini applicator and attached over the green base pole with double stick tape. Next I trimmed the Kraft birdhouse, applied the vintage photo ink and attached it over the green birdhouse base with mounting tape.  I cut the roof section off the red birdhouse and attached it to the birdhouse with glossy accents.  I cut a thin strip of red cardstock and attached it to the base of the birdhouse and attached it with glossy accents.

I cut the red and green frames and attached them together with double stick tape. I used the smallest rectangle die to cut the rectangle opening in the card base to create a see thru window for the birdhouse. I applied double stick tape to the front of the birdhouse frame and attached it to the inside opening of the window. I cut a single green frame and attached it over the back of the birdhouse on the inside of the card base to finish the opening.  I cut a section of fence using Kraft cardstock and applied vintage photo ink by swiping the ink pad directly over it. I used a waterbrush to spread the ink more evenly but still allowed some of the darker spots of ink show off the wood grain of the fence.

I attached the fence and grass sections to the card base using double stick tape.  I attached the grass border all the way across the birdhouse opening.  I applied double stick tape to the back of the double matted frame attached it to the opening.  I cut small pieces of foliage and tucked it in behind the grass and attached with glossy accents.  I attached a few formed tiny flowers to the foliage and roof of the birdhouse with glossy accents.  I applied small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the cardinals and placed them in the scene to finish. I thought the birdhouse scene looked so cute with the red gingham background.

Framed Birdhouse

Good Sunday morning.  I have a bright and cheerful framed birdhouse card to share with you today made using the Poppystamps Massa Leaf Frame,  My Favorite Things Birdhouses, Stitched Square Scallop Edge Frames, Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables and Impression Obsession Tiny Flowers.

The leaf frame has a very thin layer of cardstock around the opening so I attached a scalloped double matted frame with double stick tape to give it a more substantial appearance. I used the leaf frame as a template to draw pencil lines on the fancy scalloped layer to mark where I wanted to cut a square opening.  I used a square Nestabilities die to cut the opening and then applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the fancy layer and attached it to the card base.  I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the leafy frame and then attached it over the square cut opening.  Using layers of mounting tape between the main scalloped layer and leaf frame allowed more dimension so the little tree house scene  would appear set back in the framed opening.  Wow!  I hope that sentence made sense. I applied a few tiny glue dots to some of the larger foliage branches to hold them in place.  I formed the leaves lightly with my fingers to create a more natural look.

I assembled the birdhouse using tan woodgrain and red cardstock .  I cut a few extra small leaves and formed a few tiny flowers and attached them to the birdhouse using glossy accents.  I added a couple extra foliage branches inside the frame for the birdhouse to hang from.  I attached a small piece of twine to a branch with a glue dot and secured it to the base with a second glue dots.  I attached the birdhouse in place using mounting tape.  I formed a few tiny flowers and attached them to the branches with glossy accents.  The two tiny birds were attached with tiny squares of mounting tape.
