Merry Christmas To You



 Welcome back and Nancy Hill, design team member for The Rubber Buggy.  Take a look at this gorgeous Tattered Lace Merry Christmas Vintage die at The Rubber Buggy and also on sale while supplies last. I highly recommend that you use my tutorial, click HERE,  on cutting this die out with cardstock behind the die and fabric softener sheet behind the cardstock to take the pieces out of this die cut or keep these pieces that will stick on the fabric softener sheet to insert in another Tattered Lace Merry Christmas Vintage cut out with a different color.  Previously, I had cut out this die using fabric softener sheet behind white cardstock and then cut it again with red glitter cardstock.  I peeled off the pieces and glued it with the red glitter cardstock die cut. 
I glued the Merry Christmas with spray adhesive glue and stuck the die cut on embossed shimmer cardstock using the Crafter Companion Lace 3D embossing folder.  The beautiful patterned paper is from the Heartfelt Creations All Glammed Up paper

I used the Scor-Tape 1" wide, to adhere the patterned paper on the Bazzill Peppermint cardstock.  On smaller cards, I will adhere layers with glue but for larger cards like this one above, I use Scor-Tape to keep it from warping.  I love the Scor-Tape for adhering bows and ribbons to my card.  If I am making a paper crafted project, I prefer using Scor-Tape over glue.

Bazzill cardstock is quality paper and the colors are just beautiful.  Heartfelt Creations has beautiful patterned paper and I love using it since the stamps and dies coordinate with this top-quality paper. 

I can't wait to see the possibilities that you will create making your card with the gorgeous Tattered Lace Merry Christmas Vintage die.  You can purchase these dies and supplies from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.

Hailey's Happy Birthday Easel Drawer Card


Welcome back to The Rubber Buggy blog for Nancy Hill, Design Team member.  I love personalizing my easel cards with the drawer for each person.  Sometime the drawer is filled with chocolates, dies, gift cards or money and on top of the drawer could be a Post-It or calendar.  The sentiment is inside the drawer.  I have samples of other cards similar to this one in my tutorial.  To see my tutorial on how to make an easel card with a drawer, click HERE.

The easel card with the drawer measures 7" x 7".   I used a heavy weight 110 lb cream cardstock and adhered the drawer and easel card with Scor-Tape. This card was made mostly of the Heartfelt Creation collection All Glammed Up stamps and die sets besides other Heartfelt Creation dies and stamp sets from The Rubber Buggy.  

On top of the drawer is a Post-It.  I made a cover for it with the Heartfelt Creations All Glammed Up paper.  I cut out a sentiment found in this  paper collection and adhered it to a banner that was glued on top of the cover.

The background behind the photo is the Heartfelt Creation Fashionista stamp that was embossed with NUVO Gold Enchantment Glitter embossing powder.  I cut out the shoe from the Heartfelt Creations Lift Your Sole die and stamp set  and used 3D foam dots to stick on top of identical shoe in the Heartfelt Creations Fashionista stamp set.  I used Copic markers on the flowers of this shoe.  



Using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die and stamp set, I stamped and embossed the flower with the NUVO gold embossing powder and cut the petals out.  I used a flower shaping tool for the flower before gluing it together.  I cut out the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose leaf with gold metallic cardstock and glued it on back of the rose.  I took a branch die cut and added glue to the tip of the branches and dipped it in a small packet of star foam balls.  I glued this behind the leaf.  I made the bow from seam binding ribbon and glued it on the back.  I cut out the label "Treasured" from the Heartfelt Creations All Glammed up paper collection and glued it next to the ribbon.  

I stamp the inside drawer with the Heartfelt Creations Botanic Orchid Wish Stamp and colored it with colored pencils.  I added a decorative brad in front of the drawer.  

This is when the easel card is folded down on the drawer.  The photo of my grand daughter was adhered to an oval that was cut out with gold metallic cardstock. I used the Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval die and cut it out with gold metallic cardstock and trimmed the scallops off of the die cut.  I cut out another Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval die cut that is shown behind the photo  with the Heartfelt Creations All Glammed Up paper and glued the photo with the gold oval on top.  

Supplies:
Heartfelt Creations All Glammed Up paper collection
Heartfelt Creations All Glammed Up Shoe die
Heartfelt Creations Lift Your Sole stamp set
Heartfelt Creations Fashionista stamp
Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval die set
Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die
Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose stamp
1" wide Scor-Tape
Scrapbook Adhesive 3D Foam Tape
NUVO Gold Enchantment Glitter Embossing Powder

Musical Instrument on Christmas Wreath

Nancy Hill for Frantic Stamper Design Team and excited to share with you the beautiful Frantic Stamper Quartet Musical Instrument die set along with the Frantic Stamper Bit Of Music 6" x 6" stamp.  The Merry Christmas was stamped with the Frantic Stamper Square Christmas Vignettes.

I stamped using Ranger Antique Linen ink on a 5" square white cardstock with the Frantic Stamper Bit of Music.    I stressed the edges and sponged it with the same Ranger Antique Linen ink.

 I cut out the Frantic Stamper Quartet Musical Instrument die set with gold metallic cardstock.  I traced each instrument die on cream shimmer cardstock.  I added Dee's Distinctively Cedar Sprig Large cut out with green cardstock to make the wreath.

I created a floral plaid bow and added red jingle bells and red and gold star foam floral spray on top of the bow.  I make my own tiny angels using a mold and angel frame and added it to the wreath.

Now is your turn to use your imagination and creativity to design your own card using the Frantic Stamper 2017 November coordinating dies and stamps from Frantic Stamper on-line store.

Life is a Song



Nancy Hill for Frantic Stamper and excited to share my three-page card with you using the new 
2017 Frantic Stamper November release dies and stamps.  I used the Heartfelt Creations Fleur Border Basic die set to start with the frame of the first two pages of this card using the scallop lace border on top of the first two pages.  I embossed the white shimmer cardstock with a Sue Wilson Swirling Heart embossing folder.  

On the front page, I cut the Frantic Stamper Baby Grand Piano with black and gold cardstock and pieced the black and gold as shown above.  I took the music stand and die cut it with white cardstock and added the music notes from the Frantic Stamper Sing It stamp set.   
The second page was stamped with the Frantic Stamper Bit of Music with black ink on the shimmer white cardstock.  I die cut the Frantic Stamper Music Ribbon with gold cardstock and cut off the end of the first bar of the music ribbon.  
I used the coordinating Frantic Stamper Music Coved Labels and Frantic Stamper Elementals #7 Coved Labels.  Wonderful to have together in your die collection.   The sentiment was stamped with black in from the Frantic Stamper Sing It stamp set.  I cut out the Frantic Stamper Lovely Arched Loop and Lattice Edger with gold metallic cardstock and adhered it to the top of the card.  I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Lift Your Sole stamp with gold tinsel embossing powder and adhered it to the bottom of the card.

Love and Kisses

Nancy Hill for the Frantic Stamper Design Team.  I made this card using the new 2017 November Frantic Stamper dies and stamps.  I used the Frantic Stamper Rectangle Tangled Frames #10290 and Frantic Stamper Love and Kisses #10351 die set.  I cut these dies with black card stock and used Aleene Fast Grab and Fast Drying spray adhesive to the back of these dies to stick on the card.  The patterned paper and image are from Graphic 45 Botanical Garden paper collection.  I added a coral seam binding ribbon and bow to the side and adhered it with 1/2" wide Scor-Tape.  The white paper measuring 6" square was sponged with Ranger Antique Linen ink after embossing it with Sue Wilson Rose embossing folder.  I added a dogwood flower that was made with the Heartfelt Creations Dogwood Flower die and stamp set.  I added prills in the center of the dogwood flower.

Christmas Bunny - Easy Shadow Box Frame Tutorial for Card


Nancy Hill for The Rubber Buggy Design Team.  I am excited to share my Christmas card made with the wonderful products at The Rubber Buggy Design Store.  I made a small tutorial on how I made the 3D frame.  This technique can also be used to made shadow boxes.   I tried other techniques of using 3D foam behind each rectangle frame but the 3D foam just was too large and difficult to cut out for the 1/2" frame border. 

Tape two Spellbinder Nestabilities or Sue Wilson rectangle frames together as shown below.  If you want a wider frame border, use the size larger and tape the two dies together.  
I like using heavy cardstock to cut out frames.  This cardstock is 110 weight paper.  I cut out four frames and my main frame that will be glued to the top.  I used Aleene Fast Grab and Fast Dry glue rather than a hot glue gun since I didn't want the glue to dry too fast to align each frame on top of each other.  If I wanted to do a deeper 3D frame, just cut out a few more and glue together.  Glue the four frames and then the top patterned frame together.

I applied blue ink inside and outside the frame with a sponge.  As you can see below, the inside and outside frame color matches the top patterned paper frame.  

I like using the Scor-Pal Tape 1" wide to tape the picture behind the green Heartfelt Creations patterned paper.  I use the same 1" Scor-Pal Tape to tape this to my folded cardstock.  

I colored the Wild Rose Studio Christmas Bunny stamp with Copic Markers and cut this out with the plain oval die in the Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval die set.  I cut out the Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval decorative die with white cardstock and glued the bunny image on top.  I used Scrapbook 3D foam adhesive tape to glue the decorative die to inside of the frame.

I applied drops of Aleene Fast Grab glue around the Christmas Bunny and sprinkled on  Stampendous Chunk White Deep Impression Embossing Enamel.  After shaking off the embossing enamel that wasn't stuck to the glue, I used an embossing gun to the embossing enamel.  I love this embossing enamel when I want to make the snow appear to be 3D.
I added the Poppy Stamp Merry Christmas Banner on the left corner and Frantic Stamper Petite Poinsettias die set.  The pine branch die was cut with green cardstock and I sprinkled more embossing enamel to make it look like it has snow.  I made a floral bow and found some tiny pine cones and glued these pine cones with a hot glue gun to the bow along with red star foam flower spray.

White Poinsettia

Nancy Hill for Frantic Stamper Design Team.  I wanted to share my Christmas card with you made with the gorgeous Frantic Stamper Poinsettia die set along with the beautiful Frantic Stamper Merry Christmas die set.  Behind the poinsettia, the scallop silver edges are from the Frantic Stamper Lattice Beauty Edger #10303.  I cut this die with silver metallic cardstock and the Heartfelt Creations Celebrate The Season blue paper.  I cut out the scallop from the blue paper and glued it on top of part of the silver card stock with only the silver metallic scallops showing.

I created a tutorial, click HERE, on how I made my poinsettias from the Frantic Stamper Poinsettia die set.  I glued three gold beads in the center of this poinsettia and added Sue Wilson Beaded Swirl Flourish and Sue Wilson Delicate Fronds dies set cut out with white shimmer cardstock.

Handmade Autumn Wreath




Welcome to my blog, Nancy Hill for The Rubber Buggy Design Team.  I made my 8" wreath with grape vines, Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower dies and stamps, Elizabeth Craft Crysanthemum die, an old maple leaf punch, Tattered Lace Floral Layer leaf die set, starfoam pumpkins and wheat from our field and pine cones from trees.  

After stamps and die cutting the Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflowers, use flower shaping kit to mold the petals on the back.  Sponge with NUVO Embellishment Mousse fall colors listed below and sponge Lawn Fawn Sunflower ink on the center of each petal.  Adhere US Art Quest Express Yourself Prills to the center of each sunflower. 
NUVO Embellishment Mousse-Indian Gold
NUVO Embellishment Mousse-Persian Red
NUVO Embellishment Mousse - Coral Calypso
Cut out the Tattered Lace Floral Layer leaves and sponge some of the NUVO mousse fall colors on the tips.  

Cut out each Elizabeth Craft Crysanthemum flower with different fall colored cardstock.  Using a flower shaping kit, curl the petals upward and adhere the layers.  

Stamp and embossed with NUVO Gold Enchantment embossing powder the  Heartfelt Creations Banner with the sentiment and heat the powder with the hot embossing gun.  Cut out a 8" floral wire and bend in the center.  Using a hot glue gun, glue 3" of the double wire on the back of the banner.  The remaining wire will be used to attach and glue to the wreath at the end of the floral arrangement.

Cut enough 3" wire strips for each flower, leaf and pumpkins.  Curled one end of each wire enough to be able to use a hot glue gun to attach it to each flower.  I was able to use a long nose plier and curl about two small circles of wire that was enough to do a good attachment.  Using a hot glue gun, glue the curl end of the wire to each flower, pine cone and star foam pumpkin.  

Cut 3" floral wire and glue about 1" of the wire to the back of each leaf. This will make the leaves able to bend a little plus add sturdiness.  

Make a floral bow and use a hot glue gun to glue the bow to the wreath.  Arrange your autumn arrangement by poking the wire attached to the flowers, etc.  When you get the arrangement you want, use the hot glue gun and glue each wire attached to a flower or leaf  to the wreath.  If any wire is sticking out of the wreath, just attach it to the wreath or cut it off.  I was able to curl the wire attached to the banner to give it a wave appearance.  Using the hot glue gun, glue around the wires inside the wreath to make it stay there permanently.    


I can't wait to see the possibilities that you will create making a wreath.  You can purchase these dies and supplies from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Rose Panel

Welcome and Nancy Hill for the Frantic Stamper Design Team. I am excited to share with you these gorgeous dies from the new November 2017 releases of Frantic Stamper. The gorgeous frame is the Frantic Stamper Spiral Rose Card Panel and I love the new Frantic Stamper Musical Heart that I cut out with black and gold cardstock. I cut out the black note and glued it on top of the gold musical heart. I highly recommend for you having the coordinating Frantic Stamper Coved Musical Label die set that coordinates with the Frantic Stamper Stitched Coved Labels die set. The sentiment is in the wonderful selection of Frantic Stamper Sing It stamp set that came out in November.

 Behind the Frantic Stamper Rose Panel is the Sue Wilson Rose embossing folder.

Silent Night with Musical Notes

Nancy Hill for Frantic Stamper Design Team. I love the Frantic Stamper Music Ribbon #10294.  I die cut it out with gold metallic card stock and black cardstock.  I cut out the black music bar and glued it on top of the music bar on the Music Ribbon.

I cut out the center using the Frantic Stamper Stitched Round Rectangle #10231 large die on the shimmer paper and used 3D foam tape behind it for the Heartfelt Creations Celebrate The Season patterned paper with Silent Night.  The shimmer paper was embossed with Sue Wilson Snowflake embossing folder. 

This card measures 6" x 6".  The frames inside the card measures 5 3/4" square and 5 1/2" square.

Frantic Stamper Poinsettia Tutorial


Frantic Stamper Poinsettia #09283
Step One:  Cut two sets of Frantic Stamper Poinsettias

Step Two:  Take the largest flower shaping ball tool and mold on the back of each of the largest petals.  If you use a smaller molding ball, it tears through the cracks of the die cut. 
 Step Three:  Turn the flower to the front and fold in the center of each petal and pitch each end of the petals.  Glue the center of the petal sets together to start forming the poinsettia. If you want to sponge parts of the flower, do this before gluing the layers.

Step Four:  Take the second to the largest petals with six sets and repeat the above instructions and still continue to use the largest flower shaping ball.  Turn the petal set to the front and fold in the center of each petal and pitch the ends of each petal.  
 Step Five:  Glue two sets together as seen below.  
 Step Six:  Glue these three sets to the center of the flower in a circular arrangement.

 Step Seven:  If you want a fuller poinsettia, use the rest of the smaller petals starting with the third largest down to the smallest and glue to the flower.   You will still want to mold the petals and pitch the ends of each petal.
 Step Eight:  Glue the center with beads or anything you want.  
Step Nine:  Cut out two sets of the Frantic Stamper Poinsettia die with green cardstock.  Shape the leaves just like the poinsettia.  
 Step Ten:  Pinch each leaf off of the sets and glue slightly beyond the center behind the poinsettia so that the leaves can be seen.  See two photos below
 Note: Leaves are showing behind the poinsettia.  Glue beads or floral stamens in the center of the flowers.  The Frantic Stamper die set also comes with a stamen that could be used for this flower.  

Sample of poinsettias made with the Frantic Stamper Poinsettia die


Note the above photo the different sizes and centers for each poinsettia.  The pink poinsettias were sponged with dark pink ink.  I added glitter to some petals but didn't put poinsettia together with glittered petals.  



Now is your turn to use your imagination and creativity to design your own poinsettias with the Frantic Stamper Poinsettia die set from Frantic Stamper on-line store.


Enjoy and Happy Crafting!
