Creating die cut scenes is so much fun and one of my favorite kinds of cards to make. I wanted to share a whimsical Easter scene with you today made with several Impression Obsession dies and the beautifully colored Bazzill cardstock.
For this scene I used the newly released Rabbit set, Tiny Flowers, Leaves and Stems, Small Bird Set paired with the Swirl Tree, Grass Border, Small Grass Border and 1/2” Circle Punch.
I started by cutting out all of the different pieces for my scene. Do you cut everything before you start your project or do you just cut out as you go? I never cut out when I start except when I need to take step by step pictures for a tutorial. Most times I don’t know when I start what I want to do and just cut things and design by the seat of pants until I come up with my finished project.
I formed all my tiny flowers and stems with my stylus and molding pad.
Forming the little stems adds a natural shape and takes away the stick straight appearance.
I attached the tiny flowers to the stems with glossy accents. I always use my paper piercer or leaf tool to secure the flower in place on the stem.
I attached thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the tree and applied ATG adhesive to the bottom of the trunk and attached it to the card base. The trunk of the tree needed to be flat to sit behind the grass.
I didn’t want the scene to go all the way across the card base so I cut a portion of the grass borders off.
I attached two layers of grass together and then attached them to the card base with glossy accents.
I attached pieces of mounting tape to the small grass border and attached it over the taller grass.
I tucked several flowers into the grass and attached with glossy accents. The point of the leaf tool helps push the stem down and secure it behind the grass.
I applied mounting tape to the back of the bunnies and tucked them into the grass.
I used my tweezers and glossy accents to place the circles …oops I mean eggs in the grass around the bunnies. Who would know they aren’t egg shaped?
I finished by placing a few birds in the scene attaching with glossy accents and holding them in place for a second with the end of my stylus.
Here’s what I had left to use for another project. I keep a small glass tray on my desk to put all my leftover bits and pieces. You never know when you’re going to need them. :)
I think these bunnies are so sweet and I love the pops of color against the all white background.
Do you have some bunny dies? Get them out and try your hand at making a colorful Easter scene. Thanks for stopping by the CLASSroom today.
