Stamperia Precious Paper Collection

Welcome back to The Rubber Buggy blogs and I can't wait to share with you this gorgeous Stamperia Precious paper pad collection adhered to  this unfinished wooden box using the Prima Marketing 1" tape, glue and a hot glue gun. The gorgeous knob is from the Prima Marketing-New Orleans-Antique Knobs collection.   You will want this Stamperia Precious 12" x 12" cardstock for your next project or card.  You can get all of the wonderful supplies when you shop on-line at The Rubber Buggy.com.  
I made these foam flowers using the LeCrea Design Foam Flower sheet with the peony (middle flower) cut out and shaped using the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony Die.  The gorgeous butterfly was cut out from the Lemon Craft Vintage Time Label #022 and I used the NUVO Aqua Shimmer Glitter Pen on the butterfly and some of the flowers on the patterned paper to bring out the colors.  I love the Graphic 45 Staples Square Tag and Clock die set.  I just used the outer frame of this die set and cut it out with a gold metallic cardstock.
I painted the box first with Vaspar paint that was left over from painting a room and then covered the inside of the box with the gorgeous collection of papers in the Stamperia Precious papers.  I used glue and some double sided Prima Marketing Memory Hardware 1" tape to adhere the paper to the wood.  I used the Prima Marketing Memory Hardware tape to adhere the Venice Lace around the box.  Below the frame, I stenciled the gorgeous roses with the Tim Holtz Rose Stencil with the Prima Marketing Art Alchemy - Opal Magic - Rose/Gold paint.
This gorgeous coordinating envelope and note card is all in the Stamperia Precious paper pad.  I cut it out and adhered it in the box.  I will add a little note to wish my granddaughter a happy birthday.

So I hope I have inspired you to get started on making your foam flowers and using the Stamperia products.   You can purchase the Stamperia papers from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.

I am entering the following challenge:

Planner with Grapic 45

Welcome back Rubber Buggy bloggers.  Hi, Nancy Hill with the Rubber Buggy Design Team.  The Rubber Buggy on-line store has new products and supplies coming in each week. Due to the popular demand for these gorgeous supplies and products, these will sell quickly.  Make sure to check these out often and get your order in quickly before these are sold out.

I bought a planner and applied the gorgeous coordinating Graphic 45 papers, dies, chipboard and cardstock to the cover of this planner as well as throughout parts of the planner to personalize this for my daughter-in-law.  The shabby chic style would not be complete without flowers that were handmade using the LeCrea foam flower sheets cut out from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die set, Venise lace and Tim Holtz Idea-ology vintage metal trinkets.  
I just love the Graphic 45 coordinating papers and chipboard. I used the Prima Marketing 1" wide adhesive tape to adhere the Graphic 45 to the planner cover on the back and front.   I used a variety of my Graphic 45 papers and love the old Graphic 45 Ladies' Diary image in the center of the Graphic 45 Staples Square Tag and Clock Die  set that was cut out with metallic gold cardstock and used spray adhesive glue to apply it on the patterned Graphic 45 paper.  
I handmade the foam flowers from the LeCrea Flower Foam-Salmon with the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die set.  I used the medium and smaller size rose dies.  This time, I didn't use a hot iron for the foam since it wasn't shaping as well because this is a smaller flower.  Seems like the iron works well with large petals but not these small ones.  I used a dry baby wipe to rub the red color in the Prima Marketing Soft Pastel Oil on the edges of each petal on both sides.  Then I  rolled each petal and shaped it with my fingers.  I used a hot glue gun to glue the flower together.  I used the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die set to cut out the leaves from the LeCrea Foam Flower green sheet.  I used the same technique as the petals for coloring the leaves and used the Prima Marketing Soft Pastels Oils reds along with lighter greens along the edges of the leaves.   
I cut out the picture of my grandchildren and family and put it in the Tim Holtz Idea-logy Pocket Watch (Frame 2). I rubbed with my fingers the Prima Marketing Rich Copper wax on the watch, key hole and Tim Holtz metal word banner. 

No vintage or shabby chic style would not be complete without ribbon or lace.  I love the Venise Lace on my vintage/shabby chic projects.  I adhered the Venise Lace with Prima Marketing 1" wide adhesive tape.   I added ribbon to the binder along with the Graphic 45 chipboard.  

Throughout the planner, I added the Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe Journalizing/Ephemera cards and a personal pictures to personalize this for her.

Bella with Umbrella


Is it raining? No - well it's raining flowers! Bella is back with this gorgeous image, including a little cat friend who's sharing her umbrella! If you are looking for adorable stamps, the Wild Rose Studio stamp sets are a wonderful choice.  The Rubby Buggy on-line store carries all of the current Wild Rose Studio stamps and die set for you to make all of your cards and projects along with other supplies you will need.  

made this tri-shutter card using the Wild Rose Studio Bella with Umbrella, Wild Rose Studio Birthday Party stamp #2, and the Wild Rose Birthday Paper 6" x 6" paper pad.  I would highly recommend the Wild Rose Studio Birthday Party Stamp #2.  Can you image all of the different cards you can make especially for birthday but other occasions with the stars, scrolls and Bella with the balloons up in the sky.  

I used the Tattered Lace Shutter Card die set but there are many tutorials online that you can view to get the measurements on how to make a Tri Shutter card.  I used Copic Markers to color the Bella stamps that were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  If you are not familiar with stamping, Memento inks are what I use when I want to color the image with Copic Markers.  Otherwise, if I use other inks, the black smears with the coloring.   I added Wild Orchid Craft flowers on the front of the card.

Ciao Bella Italian journal

Welcome back and I have a journal to share with you that I made from one of my granddaughters who is known for her sparkle in her personality as well as what she wears and decor in her room. 


She selected this card from the 

Ciao Bella - Italian Luxury - Rice Paper Ephemera Cards

for her journal. Rice paper has a rich color to the prints but it is very thing.  Therefore after cutting it out, I used spray adhesive to glue it to the black cardstock.  I used 

Prima Marketing - Memory Hardware - Artisan Adhesive Tape - 1" to adhere it the layers to the journal.  I added string of  rhinestones and ribbon using a hot glue gun around the image and other rhinestones through the image.  I added the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen to the shoes, glasses and parts of the purse and doily.  My friends and I love this NUVO Glitter Gloss Pen and use it for almost all of my projects.  It will last you for a long time and comes in a packet of 2.

Steampuck Journal

Welcome and sharing my first handmade vintage steampuck handmade journal for my older grandson's birthday.  If this is your first time working with the steam puck theme, you are not alone.  I am learning from each project of what I will do different for the next one.
If you are looking for vintage parts for your vintage steam puck projects, The Rubber Buggy on-line store carries the supplies you will need from Prima Marketing, Tim Holtz, etc.  I also went to the hand ware store for a few more trinkets like the hinges to add besides adding the burlap to the side of the journal.  Occasionally, I pick up junk jewelry at thrift stores to add to my vintage projects like this blue stone and chain.  


Ciao Bella Codex Leonardo 
I started with the gorgeous Ciao Bella Codex Leonardo cardstock and used the Prima Marketing double sided-self adhesive 1" wide tape over a brown leathered journal.  I used a brush to apply gesso to coat the paper for the colored inks and paste for the stenciling. I purchased the Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Basics Mixed Media Essentials  This gessos comes  in three tubes of black, white and clear.  I used the black gesso on the stencil and let dry and then colored it with a little bit of Prima Marketing Rich Copper wax.  I selected the gears, handle and parts and took an evening on arranging how I will arrange this on this cover besides looking on google and Pinterest on how other people did their steam puck crafts before gluing it together.

Like I mentioned before in my first mixed media project, I really love the Prima Marketing Metallique Wax - Rich Copper and Prima Marketing Metallique Wax White Gold because of the metallic shimmer on the gears.  I used my fingers to apply this on the gears and the wax dries very slow so you can add or smear off what you don't want.  I added dabbed with a brush different colors of the Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Extravagance Rust Effect Paste - Metal Rust.  These jars have a sandy texture which brings out the rust effect on the trinkets.

Father's Day Card to Husband

 Welcome nd Nancy Hill, Design Team for The Rubber Buggy.  Father's Day is June 17th and I like to make cards for my sons and husband.  I am not going into detail on how to make this since this is my first mix media card one and still learning.  My goal was to make it as rustic as possible since we live on a farm and lots of rustic farm equipment around.   I looked at numerous tutorials and examples to learn a few techniques on how to use mix media supplies and how others layered some of their cards with gears and clocks.

I cut out the top left section of the Ciao Bella Leonardo rice paper and sprayed the back with adhesive spray to adhere to a sheet of red/brown cardstock.  The embossed paper behind it was embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.


Ciao Bella Leonardo Rice Paper

What I did learn is the love of certain products that will get you started with mix media.  First - the need for gesso to coat the paper for the colored inks and paste. I purchased the Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Basics Mixed Media Essentials  Gessos that comes black, white and clear.  This will be step one in coating the paper before adding the different colored paste and inks.  


The Prima Marketing Metallique Wax are so beautiful when applied to these gears and clocks and easy to apply as well as wipe off before the ink dries. This wax reminds me of applying the old shoe polish.   I especially love the Prima Marketing Rich Copper with the White Gold since it adds just enough sheen to the gears and background paper to give it nice rustic and metallic look.  
 I added the different colors of the 

Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Extravagance Rust Effect Paste - Metal Rust except for the green this time.  These jars have a sandy texture which brings out the rust effect on the gears, nuts, and watches.  I just use a brush to dab on some of these colors on these metal embellishments.

Anniversary Card

I am excited to share with you my son and daughter-in-laws first anniversary card.  I made this easel card that measures 6" square when folded.  

I used the Heartfelt Creations Classic Wedding paper along with the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations Decorative Medallion die set.   I handmade the roses using the gorgeous peach foamiran from Scrap and Craft with the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die set.  I cut out the leaves using gold metallic cardstock with this die set.  This time, I learned to use my fingers to shape the petals without using the iron since the petals were so small.  This card wouldn't be complete without the gorgeous Venise lace.  
Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die

I found an old wedding bouquet at a thrift store and cut some of the applique and pearl and used a hot glue gun to apply the applique and pearls on the back of the handmade roses.  I also added a coral feather behind the rose.   


I cut out both of the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Medallion dies 
with white cardstock and cut out  other background die with gold metallic cardstock. This die set included dies to cut a background behind the decorative dies.  

I used an ole Spellbinder heart set for the picture and glued a string of pearls around it.  Tip:  The string of pearls are attached with two strings.  If you snip the outside string about ever other pearl, the string can be glued around the heart much better.  
Other supplies:

Tim Holtz Idea-ology Baroque Frames

Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Stamp Set #2
Spellbinder Shape-ability Lace Heart Set


I used the Zephyr foam peach to make my flowers from Scrap and Craft and entering the Scrap and Craft June Challenge - DIY Flowers., 

I hope I have inspired you to make your next anniversary or wedding card.  Keep watching and thank you so much for those wonderful comments as well as suggestions.

Mindy's Box

For grandchildren, us Nana's go the extra mile to make birthday gifts for them.  Actually, these covered wooden boxes really didn't take that much time to make with a hot glue gun and the wonderful supplies from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  

This is a 8x8" wooden box is covered with the stunning Stamperia Flower Alphabet paper with the gorgeous 

Prima Marketing - Frank Garcia - Memory Hardware Resin Frames - Vincennes Regal Frame that I colored with pastel Copic Markers.  The beautiful sentiment inside the frame is also in the Stamperia Flower Alphabet paper pad that I cut out and glued behind the frame.

No shabby chic project goes without adding the gorgeous Venise Lace, rhinestone or pearls.


I used these gorgeous two sheets from the Stamperia Flower Alphabet paper pad collection to cover this wooden box using Prima Marketing Memory Hardware Artisan two-sided adhesive 1" tape and a hot glue gun.  I added some NUVO Shimmer Glitter Gloss pen on the sentiment and the flowers to make this stand out more.  You will really love the NUVO Shimmer Glitter Gloss pen for most of your cards and projects.  It is a light shimmer that is just beautiful and easy to apply.
The beautiful floral alphabet was cut out and glued on the front side of the box with the lace glued with a hot glue gun and the Graphic 45 Shabby Chic Door Pull.
I added some pink 10mm Wild Orchid Craft roses on the lace.  The Rubber Buggy has a variety of flowers in different sizes for your projects and cards.  

I made my flowers using the beautiful LeCrea Design Pink/Red Flower Foam.  
I added small rhinestones in various places on the front to make the shabby chic look stand out a little bit more.  

Venise Lace

So I hope I have inspired you to get started on making your foam flowers and using the Stamperia products.   You can purchase the Stamperia papers from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!
