Wedding Gift Tag

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend crafting.  I was in the shabby chic mood and a wedding tag to make for the upcoming wedding of my grand daughter and her finance this month.  I love working with the shabby chic colors, flowers, pearls, lace and lots of distressing.  I used a photo of their engagement and printed it out in a vintage color.   The Rubber Buggy has the wonderful products that you will want for all of your crafting projects.  
I cut out three rectangles and cut the edges of the top to make the frame of my tag with the Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics.   I cut one sheet of  Maja Design paper with a Lawn Fawn Scallop square frame sponged the edges of the scallops with Ranger Antique Linen ink and Ranger Walnut Stain ink using the Ranger Blending tool and distressed the edges of each rectangle layer with a sprint of water on the edges and used my finger nails to scratched and distress the edges before using the Beacon 3 n 1 Advanced glue to adhere the layers together.  Make sure to cut out the lace and use the 5/8" wide Scor Tape to adhere the lace to the front and some lace to the back of the card before gluing all of the tag layers together.

I added the 15mm Wild Orchid Craft pink roses with leaves cut with the  Heartfelt Creations Leafy Accent die set.  I cut out a small tag from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Wedding paper pad and glued it behind the flowers.  I made my little angel from a mold and added it to the beautiful Venice Lace.  I had a string of rhinestone and pearls and used a hot glue gun to glue it on.  I added about three layers of ivory lace around the picture.  I handmade the ivory seam binding bow and added a pearl/rhinestone embellishment to the center of the bow.  
So get off your computers and start making a tag like this one!  I hope I have inspired you try out these products available at The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  My cards and projects are always posted on Saturday.  Keep watching and thank you so much for those wonderful comments as well as suggestions. 

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Lawn Fawn Dad and Me Birthday Card

 Welcome back and hope you are having a very nice August weekend.  This time of year it is hot outside so get into your  craft room where it is much cooler and start crafting.  I am excited to sharing this Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel birthday card made for my nephew with the adorable Lawn Fawn stamp and die sets. The Rubber Buggy has all of the name-brand supplies and products for your next crafting project and cards.  Check out the newly arrived products each day and get your orders in early while supplies last.
I always have fun creating cards like this one.  It puts a smile on my face whenever I start working with these little critters from Lawn Fawn Dad and Me Stamp Set.  I used Copic Markers for these critters, fish and the Lawn Fawn Rainbow.

I cut out the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel  with shimmer cardstock.  I sponged on Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass ink in the shimmer cardstock and then used an retired sun embossing folder that is similar to Lawn Fawn Sun Embossing folder through my Sizzix Big Shot.  I sponged on Lawn Fawn Sunflower Yellow ink around the sun rays.I used the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Friends and Family Sentiments stamp set 

I cut out the cloud with the Lawn Fawn Simply Puffy Clouds  and glued the frame behind the reveal wheel frame.  I cut out the circle in the Lawn Fawn and stamped the sentiments with the Lawn Fawn stamp on the circle.  First, I traced the cloud on the circle and then stamped the sentiments using a stamp tool until I got the desired amount of black ink on the sentiment.  I used my ole Misti stamp tool and now Tim Holtz makes a wonderful stamp tool that works the same way.

 Below is a whole rainbow but I just used the smallest of the 4 rays this time and colored each ray with the two colors of the rainbow.


I adhered two additional Lawn Fawn dies in the scene, Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountains Border and Lawn Fawn Grassy Border. I made my own glitter cardstock - easy peasy.

   I adhered the card with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame .  I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink with the Lawn Fawn Wheel Friends and Family Sentiments stamp for the sentiment.  Also, I used the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Arc Frame Die arrows for the side of the wheel.

I tied jute around the card twice and tied the ends into a bow.  I used Beacon 3 n 1 Advanced glue for the entire card as well as to adhere the jute with the bow to the front of the card.

Lawn Fawn Little Sparkle Unicorn

Welcome back crafter friends and happy weekend to you.  I am sharing today a tutorial on how I created my Lawn Fawn Rainbow using the Lawn Fawn Rainbow Die set as well as a tutorial on how to create a reveal wheel card using the 
Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Die and Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Arch Add On die set.  You will have so much fun doing a reveal wheel card and the Lawn Fawn Company continues to add on more Lawn Fawn Reveal wheel dies and stamp sets for every occasion.  The Rubber Buggy has all of these adorable Lawn Fawn die and stamp sets for a weekend of exciting crafting.


 Instructions for Lawn Fawn Rainbow Die

Apply NUVO Shimmer Clear Glitter on Rainbow.

Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Instructions:  Also Lawn Fawn has a Reveal Wheel U-Tube Tutorial for this as well.
Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Die Set
Die cut the scallop circle with heavy-weight white cardstock.  Using a pencil and ruler, draw a line across the circle making 4 pie shapes.

Note the embossed circle on this scallop circle.  Use the embossed line and your pencil lines as lining up the window and then trace the 4 windows with the pencil.  This will help center your stamped sentiments.
I like using a stamp tool like the Misti or Tim Holtz Stamp Platform for all of my stamping. Normally, I used the magnets on my stamp platform but my grandson hide my magnets so I use tape this time.  I will always end up inking and stamping the same stamp about three times on the stamp tool to get my desired ink on the sentiment.   I lined up each sentiment in the traced sections for stamping and begin my stamping which I have reinked about three times to get the desired stamp print that I want for this reveal wheel using the Memento Black Tuxedo ink.  
I used the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Friends and Family Sentiments stamp set along with the Lawn Fawn A Little Sparkle Stamp set for the sentiments.  
 Erase the pencil marks on this scallop wheel.
You can tell from the back of this wheel that I need new pads with the marks.  Using the 1" circle from the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel set, die cut with white cardstock.  I just used some white cardstock with ink on it but this won't be seen.  Insert the brad through the 1" circle and scallop.  You will adhere glue or 3D tape on this brad but not the scallop die cut to adhere to the card.



NOTE:  You can cut out another reveal wheel backing or I used the Lawn Fawn Scallop Rectangle Frame behind the reveal wheel front.



Add 3D Foam Adhesive tape on the back.  Make sure to not get the tape right up to the reveal wheel.


Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Arc Frame die


Die cut white cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Arc Frame die.  Glue the frame to the front of the card.  Apply blue ink to the arrows. 
Apply Beacon 3-in-1 Advance Craft glue to the back of this die cut.
Lay the glue side down on the card next to the wheel and  use any thing to poke these arrows down on the card.  I used my fingers to secure these arrows.  If your paper isn't heavy enough or the arrows came out of the cardstock, just use a tweezer or fingers to place these arrows on the card.
Lawn Fawn A Little Sparkle Stamp Set  and Uni-Ball Impact Medium White Gel Pen

Isn't this little unicorn in the Lawn Fawn A Little Sparkle stamp set adorable.  It comes with a die but I just colored this adorable unicorn with Copic Markers and used the Uni-Ball Impact Medium White Gel Pen for the stripes in the hair.  I love this white pen and had the same white pen for the past two years.  It doesn't dry up or clog up in the point.  

I used a white cardstock for the Lawn Fawn Fluffy Cloud border that comes in three die cuts. 
Lawn Fawn Fluffy Cloud border
 I cut out each one and sponged on Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass ink on the edges of the clouds.  I used the Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced glue to adhere the clouds on the card and around the edges the clouds and then applied glitter.

I applied 3 of the Prima Marketing Melange SIIC Crystals around the card and added 10mm white Wild Orchid Craft flower in the center of the round ribbon rhinestone.

Thank You Cards and Gift Box Tutti Designs Swirly Thanks die

Welcome back and happy weekend.  Nancy, here, to share some cards and gift boxes that I made with the gorgeous Tutti Designs Swirly Thanks die.   I had to make about 15 in one weekend and had so much fun making these using the wonderful die and supplies available at The Rubber Buggy on-line store.
Tutti Designs Swirly Thanks








I made my own glitter paper by using heavy cardstock sprayed with adhesive spray glue and heavily sprinkled with glitter.  Tap the paper on the edge afterwards to knock off any glitter not sticking to the paper.  By making your own glitter paper will save you money as well as getting the color that you want and have the quality that you need for your die cut or used for your card or project.  The Rubber Buggy sells a variety of fine glitter to make your own glitter paper.  

I like using this spray glue as well on back of the detailed die cut like this Thanks die cut to adhere on my cards.  Otherwise, I use the Beacon 3 in 1 Advanced glue for the rest of the projects and cards.   

I used washi tape for the one card and used a beautiful aqua colored ribbon for the other.  I would suggest if you are mailing many of the cards to just use the washi tape to save on mailing cost.

The embossing folder is a retired Crafter's Companion but The Rubber Buggy sells another Crafter's Companion embossing folder that will work well along with other embossing folders.  I used shimmer paper for the front of the card.

I plan to have a tutorial with measurements on how I created my gift box covered with the gorgeous Prima Marketing Havana paper with Wild Orchid Craft flowers with the beautiful Tutti Designs Swirly Thanks.  I used the Beacon 3 in 1 Advanced glue to create my boxes. 

Don't forget to add on that gorgeous shimmer using the NUVO Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss brush to finish the project on the butterflies and other embellishments for that added shimmer. 

I hope I have inspired you try out these products available at The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  My cards and projects are always posted on Saturday.  Keep watching and thank you so much for those wonderful comments as well as suggestions. 
Enjoy and Happy Crafting!
