Wild Rose Studio Birthday Card with Bella

The Rubby Buggy carries all of your favorite Wild Rose Studio stamps, papers and dies. Wonderful customer service and quickly deliver right to your doorstep.  

 I just love the Wild Rose Studio stamp sets like the Wild Rose Studio Bella Party #2.  This stamp set is also similar to the Wild Rose Studio Bella stamp set which could be used making this card.


I colored the image with Copic Markers and added glitter glue to the balloons.  I used a 1" punch to cut out the Wild Rose Studio Cat and Moon greeting and adhered it to another scallop circle punch.  I used an ole Spellbinder nestabilities rectangle die set for the frame and embossed it with an embossing folder.  

I added the 3mm flat back string pearls using the Beacon 3-1 glue.  I have always used another glue brand but I plan to stick with e Beacon 3-1 glue since it dries so well tacky and clear.  It comes out of the bottle so well and will stick to anything.   I added some ruffled ribbon using this same glue to the back of the frame.  I adhered another scallop border die behind the frame.  I adhered this using Prima Marketing Artisan double-sided self-adhesive tape to a heavy cardstock.

I highly recommend the Uni-Ball White Gel Pen  that comes in a set of 2.  I always had problems in the past with other name brand white pens with clogging and drying up quickly. I almost have given up buying any more white pens.  I gave this a try and absolutely love it.   I have this pen over a year and did it flows immediately upon using it. No more trying to get a white pen to unclog on the point.   I colored the white lines in the ballon over glitter with ease.   


Wild Rose Studio Bella's Party 2 Stamp Set
This stamp set is also similar to the Wild Rose Studio Bella which has the beautiful corner stamps that is also available at The Rubber Buggy on-line store.

The Heartfelt Creations Blushing Rose paper is so gorgeous behind the image and I love how the colors went to well with the colored image.  I adhered the image to the Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval die frame.  Also, I used the LeCrea Design Blue/Violet Foam Flower cut with the Heartfelt Creations Cascading Fuchsia flower die to make these flowers.  Also, I added some Wild Orchid Craft Wild Cosmos flowers by the handmade bow.  I used the 

Prima Marketing - Memory Hardware - Artisan Adhesive Tape - 1"  behind the bow.

Rustic Truck

Welcome back Rubber Buggy bloggers.  Take a look at all of the new arrivals at 
The Rubber Buggy.  You'll want to start ordering your Christmas stamps and die sets before these items are soon to be sold out. 


 I am excited to share my steam puck card made with gorgeous supplies, paper, and chipboard available at The Rubber Buggy.  I am still learning about mixed media so would love to hear what you have to say about working with gesso, inks, paste, etc. and any recommendations so that we can all learn together.  If you are new at mixed media, I would suggest the Prima Marketing Finnabair Mixed Media Essential Gesso set of black, white and clear that comes in 2 ounce bottles. I am experimenting with the black, white and clear gesso and really fond of the clear gesso for most of my use. I used a lot of white gesso on my knobs for Shabby Chic gift boxes that I made for a wedding.  

7 Gypsies Architextures Findings Adhesive Embellishments - Red Tow Truck

49 and Market  Chipboard Sets - Timeless White


I used my fingers to spread the clear gesso on the chipboard gears and clock and let dry.   I used my fingers to apply the gorgeous Prima Marketing waxes on the gear, clock and tow truck.  I used a hot glue gun to adhere the metal gears to the card.  The background was embossed with the new Sizzix 3D Gear embossing folder and I applied the same clear gesso and Prima Marketing waxes on it as well.

I am entering this in the following challenge:

Graphic 45 Imagine Gift Box

Welcome back and I would love to share a keepsake gift box that I made for my niece's birthday.  It will be filled with chocolates, jewelry, and other items.
I am having a lot of fun experimenting with the mixed media products from Prima Marketing and Tim Holtz along with the gorgeous paper collections that are all available from The Rubber Buggy. The top of the box was made using the gorgeous new Graphic 45 Imagine paper.  I just love this collection from Graphic 45 Imagine.
I used Prima Marketing self-adhesive tape and Beacon 1-2-3 glue to adhere this gorgeous paper on top of the box. I took some lace and colored it with stamping ink of rust and cream ink colors.  I used a hot glue gun to adhere the lace and all of the embellishments on the box.  You can see the gorgeous Prima Marketing Crystals around the top of the box.


Since I didn't have the rest of the Graphic 45 Imagine collection, I used other Graphic 45 papers to cover the rest of the box.  This paper matched very well of the Graphic 45 Imagine, especially the fairies that look like the fairies on top of the box.  


I covered the back of the box with Graphic 45 Imagine - Adventure Beckon and the rest with the other Graphic 45 papers.
Below, is the bottom of the box. I always like using my stamp to autographic my cards and projects.
Below, I covered the gears with the Prima Marketing Clear Gesso and then colored the gears and clock with the wonderful Prima Marketing Waxes of Copper, Red Amber, Brass and Prima Marketing Dragon Sparks.  I applied with a hot glue gun the Prima Marketing Crystals around the top of the box.  I love the gold in the pink and blue crystals.  You can see one crystal on her cheek and the other crystals in the gears and on the clock.  The gears, clock and token are from Tim Holtz.
I handmade the foamiran flowers using cream foamiran and sponged on red and orange water-based crayons.  I colored the metal butterfly with the Prima Marketing Dragon Eye Sparks and Prima Marketing Rich Copper Wax. The metal corner is from Tim Holtz and colored with Prima Marketing waxes.
The metal flower is from the Prima Marketing - Finnabair Mechanicals Metal Flower Embellishments  and colored with Prima Marketing Art Alchemy - Metallique Wax - Rich Copper and Prima Marketing Art Alchemey - Antique Brilliance Red Amber wax.  The stamens of the flower was colored with the Prima Marketing Acrylic Paint Sparks - Dragon Eye which adds a touch of shine to the stamens.

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.

Tim Holtz Rose Stencil
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!

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.
