Little Birdie Nurse


Supplies:
Lawn Fawn Fall Fling collection 6" x 6" or 12" x 12"
Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Die set
Prima Marketing Melange Diamond Art Pebbles 
Blue and sage green cardstock
Lawn Fawn Dad and Me stamp set (Fishes on bottom of whale)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink:  Tumbled Glass (Ocean and around scalloped frame)


Lawn Fawn Get Well Before & After
                                                                    Lawn Fawn Fall Fling

I was challenged with my first card and threw it away when I realized that I can't add any embellishment to the stamp on the picture changer when the tab wouldn't go up and down.  Therefore, I reviewed the Lawn Fawn tutorial, click HERE again and as well highly recommended on the tutorial was to add the baby powder or cornstarch to the stamped and colored image on the picture changer after being colored.  The baby powder or cornstarch will make the tab work smoothly when pulling  the tab.  I fussy cut the stamped images and then adhered the extras on the the outside frame of the picture changer.

I sponged on Ranger Tumbled Glass ink to the ocean on the whale picture as well as the scalloped frame.  I dabbed some NUVO Morning Dew gloss as well as the Prima Marketing Art Pebbles around the frame of the whale card for bubbles of the water.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Get Well Soon Mice

Welcome back and Nancy, here, excited to share another mice card with you today.  The new arrival of the Lawn Fawn dies and stamps have these adorable mice, sentiments and hearts available for Valentines besides other occasions and holidays.  All of these wonderful products are available at The Rubber Buggy on-line and retail store.  Get your order in while supplies last since this collection is way too cute.   

I made another Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel card using the Lawn Fawn You’re Just My Type and Lawn Fawn Love Poems! Lawn Fawn designed these stamp sets to work perfectly with lots of Lawn Fawn interactive die sets such as the Lawn Fawn Square or Rectangle Reveal Wheel die sets.


 This Lawn Fawn Reveal Add On Wheel Square die set that is purchased separately to add to the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel die set includes window and square frame for a beautiful heart that is perfect for Valentine’s Day and “I love you” cards! Plus, Lawn Fawn stamps have sentiments to fit in the windows of the reveal wheel and there are a variety of different shapes of reveal wheel window add-on dies to add to your collection.  Many of the window frames have templates available for easy stamping on the cut out wheel circle.  

If you haven' made a reveal wheel card, the Lawn Fawn has wonderful videos to guide you for the first time. Just click Here to view their video instructions.    I would highly recommend viewing the tutorial first for helpful guidance.  Spin the wheel to reveal different sentiments of  photos of my card showing the four sentiments stamped on the circle wheel.  




Lawn Fawn Fancy Wavy Banner set has three dies that cut four different style banners. I used the coordinating wavy stamp in the Lawn Fawn Love Poems stamp set.    





I added the tiny hearts.  You will find all possibilities and occasions for the Lawn Fawn Heart Shaker Gift tag die for other projects and cards.  Helpful hint:  Most of these very tiny hearts will remain in the cardstock after the die cut.  On the back of the cardstock, adhere the glue or spray adhesive on all of the hearts.  Turn over and then use a pointy tool to poke out each heart directly where you want these hearts to lay on your card.  Otherwise, these tiny hearts are very difficult to individually glue and set on the card with your fingers.  


I sponged on  the Ranger Archival Magenta ink around the card before adding the mice and hearts.
To finish my card, I added a Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Square Frame  and the Lawn Fawn Fall Fling paper to cover the card front!


So have fun crafting this weekend with these products.  Order now while these gorgeous dies, papers and stamps are still available.  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!

Steampuck Card for Challenge

Welcome back and hope you are having a wonderful start for the new year.  I have a few male birthday cards to make right now and a nice change from making Christmas cards for the past few months. If you are looking for vintage parts for your vintage steam puck projects, 

I had a sheet in my piling stash of old paper of gold mirror foil and embossed it with the Sizzix 3D Tim Holtz Mechanic Embossing Folder.  I used a brush to apply the Prima Marketing Finnabair Black Gesso over the entire sheet.  If you use a brush and tap it on, you will get more of a rustic appearance rather than brushing it smoothly.    I applied the Prima Marketing Metallique Aged Brass, Rich Copper, Ginger Sparks and Red Amber with some Ranger Dauber Black Soot.  Occasionally, I used a dry wipe to spread or remove any excess colors.

I cut out the edges of the embossed section before gluing and adding the gears that were also covered with black gesso and various colors of the same Prima Marketing Metallique waxes. I love using the Prima Marketing waxes since it provides a nice metallic sheen on this paper along with the Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Ginger Sparks.   I just use my fingers to smear these waxes and Sparks on the paper and gears.   I first applied the black gesso in thPrima Marketing Finnabair Art Basic Mixed Media Essentials Gesso Sets on the gears and screws and let dry before applying the waxes and Sparks.

I added the brown baker twine and then used a hot glue gun for the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Metal Word Bands.  I smeared some Prima Marketing waxes on the metal word bands.  

I cut out some patterned brown paper and distress the one edge with my fingers and used a pencil to draw the stitches.  I applied the Ranger Antique Linen to the edges for a distress look.  


I sponged on the Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink to the stamped sentiment and number 41st.

Lawn Fawn XOXO Background die

I stamped out the Lawn Fawn You're Just My Type and Lawn Fawn Love Poems using the 
Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink.  Each stamp set comes with a Lawn Fawn die set.  I colored the images with Copic Markers and used the Uni-Ball White Ink pen in some of the areas on the images.  I cut out the Lawn Fawn XOXO Background Portrait die with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Rectangle die set on yellow cardstock.  I cut out the Lawn Fawn XOXO Backdrop Portrait die with light green and also pink cardstock. I adhered the green backdrop to the yellow cardstock.  I poked out the Xs and Os of the pink cardstock and glued these to the light green cardstock.  

Additionally, I added the cat and rug using the Lawn Fawn Christmas Dream stamp set.  

The inside card was covered with the beautiful Lawn Fawn Fall Fling paper before adding the mice and sentiment found in these new Lawn Fawn stamp sets.

Lawn Fawn Koala

Welcome and Nancy, here.  Australia is being ravaged by the worst wildfires seen in decades with large swathes of the country devastated since the fire season began affecting so many people causing thousands to flee their homes, farms and ranches including one dear Rubber Buggy design team member.  Millions of Australian animals have died as well.  One of the dear animals in Australia is the adorable koala bear and I wanted to create a card to send the message  to her as well as our Aussie friends and families that you are in our thoughts and prayers.  

If you are interested in creating a card similar to this one, The Rubber Buggy on-line store has all of these wonderful Lawn Fawn products along with a huge wide variety of name-brand supplies and products to create your project and cards.   The Rubber Buggy customer service and fast delivery is exactly what you want from a company that goes the extra mile for their customers and even has fun doing it.  

Supplies:
Lawn Fawn I Love You(calyptus)
Copic Markers
Beacon 3 n 1 Advanced Glue

Technique:  

After die cutting the Lawn Fawn Heart Shaker Gift Tax that has so many tiny hearts on the pink cardstock still in place on the cardstock, I sprayed the back of the cardstock with the hearts in place with adhesive spray glue and then poked these hearts out where I want to adhere on my card.  

Also, I reversed the two-sided patterned paper to the die cutting machine and  cut out Lawn Leafy Tree Background Portrait die to get the tree on the right side rather than the left.  
So keep our Australian friends and family in your thoughts and prayers.

 What amazing vintage ladies in this paper pad with the beautiful sentiments and vivid colors.  I can't wait for you to try out this collection. 
 I cut out different sentiments in the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward paper pad to add for this card to personalize it for daughter.  I added the Wild Orchid mulberry flowers with the pearls and always ribbons on most of my cards.  I added a feather behind the bow with a rhinestone heart and pink mulberry flower in the center of the heart for that shabby chic/vintage look.  I used rose seam binding ribbon across the card and cut out a strip of white glittery cardstock to coordinate with the colors in this paper as well as a touch of glimmer.  I added the butterfly from the Graphic 45 Die Cut Assortment and adhered pink pearls in the center and glissen it with NUVO glitter pen.

I added a border around the image using the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward Stickers and  Graphic 45 Pattern and Solid Paper
I always personalize my cards by typing and printing on cardstock for the inside of the card.  This time, I added the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward paper from this same page for the inside besides adding the sentiment.

Graphic 45 Fashion Times

Welcome back and I am excited to share a new arrival of the Graphic 45 Fashion Times collection available at The Rubber Buggy that carries all of the name-brand products and supplies to make those gorgeous cards and projects.  I will be designing one card or project every month this year with Graphic 45 Fashion Times collection and sharing it with you.  

What a beauty and gorgeous collection.  This collection is so well suited for crafters to make planners, daily journals, mini albums, gorgeous cards with papers reflecting flowers and colors for that month and for all of your scrapbook needs. What I like about this the Graphic 45 Fashion Times collection is the monthly pages in this collection to create projects and cards for each month of imagery of vintage ladies, wonderful sentiments and florals for each season of vibrant colors of sapphire blue, amethyst purples, emerald greens, ruby reds and citrine yellows.   

For those closely following my blog, my grand daughter got married in August.  She loves her special vintage outfits for parties wearing those gorgeous hats.  I used the LaserLowe Love Hearts With The Lilies of the Valley chipboard heart for the center and added NUVO Gold Enchantment embossing powder on the chipboard before adhering my sentiment behind chipboard and adhering to the card.  I love glitter but the Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Sparks Dragon Eyes would have been my second choice.  The beautiful rose and scroll is from the Graphic 45 Die Cut Assortment.  I added a layer of gold glitter cardstock  to the card since I love using gold glitter for Christmas cards and projects.    
Below is February page in this collection that I used to make this card.  Notice the different sentiments throughout the page for that wording that is perfect to personalize your card or project for that special person. In this paper pad 12 x 12", each month has a new gorgeous vintage lady and precious sentiments designed for the month like the February paper designed for my card.  Please notice on the left side the special sentiments that can be cut out and adhered to your card to tell your person how special they are.  For the layers, I used both the December and February paper for this card since it was a Christmas card but the hat on this February lady reflects more of my grand daughter hat at the wedding.  Each month paper is also sold separately and available at The Rubber Buggy.

Lawn Fawn Christmas Gift Tags

Welcome back and I am so excited to share my Christmas tags.  I just love this little reindeer and Santa with an adorable Christmas snow globe scene all made with the Lawn Fawn dies and stamp sets.  These wonderful dies and stamps are available at The Rubber Buggy on-line store.

I had so much fun making these Christmas tags with the adorable Lawn Fawn Ho Ho Holidays Stamp and die set.  It just brings out the Christmas feeling while making these tags and the excitement of giving presents with the toppings of these tags on Christmas Day.     

The two tags in the photo below were made with a snowglobe very close to the Lawn Fawn Snowglobe die set.  I used a snowflake embossing folder and used a 2" circle punch to cut it out.  I glued it behind the snowglobe.  I stamped and die cut the Lawn Fawn Ho Ho Holiday stamp set and adhered it to the snowglobe.  I used baker twine string for the top.  


Below tag, I used the Lawn Fawn Ho Ho Holidays Stamp of Santa and cut out his hat to adhere to the dinosaurs found in the Lawn Fawn Rawrsome Stamp Set and Die Set.  I used the Graphic 45 Staples Square Tag and Clock Die setfor the frame.

You won't need to add lots of embellishments to make for a beautiful card to send to that special person.  I made most of these cards with glitter paper, dark coral and brown cardstock as well as light colored blue cardstock.  I always add ribbon to most of my cards.  I used red seam binding ribbon and cut out a strip of the gold glitter cardstock and adhered to the center of the ribbon.
