Magnolia with Band Aid

Welcome back every Saturday and Nancy, here, to share my card with you made with the wonderful products and supplies from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  I made this card for a friend who is struggling with health issues. I made this card with Magnolia stamp - Get Well - Sweet Tilda With Bandaid stamp along with the wonderful Heartfelt Creation - Heartfelt Sentiment stamp set with the Memento Black Tuxedo ink.  Tilda and the sentiment was adhered with the wonderful Beacon 3 In 1 Advanced glue on the Graphic 45 - Baby 2 Bride collection.



I used an old Spellbinder heart die and cut it with the same Graphic 45  paper collection and sponged a little Ranger Distress Antique Linen on the edges and inside of the heart that has the lattice.  I glued the string of pearls around the heart and added the NUVO Crystal Drops - Rhubard Crumble dots on the inside.  I added Wild Orchid Craft flowers to the heart and sentiment. 

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!

Prima Marketing Julie Nutting Witchy Poo

 Welcome back and Happy Autumn!!  I love working with the autumn colors and especially making Halloween cards.  Welcome back and Nancy here to share with you a tri-shutter Halloween card scored numerous places with my Scor-Pal made with the adorable Prima Marketing Julie Nutting Witchy Poo stamp on Authentique - Nightfall and Graphic 45 - Rare Oddities - Brew and Potion paper.  There are several tri-shutter card tutorials on the web but I used an ole retired Tattered Lace dies, Sue Wilson Design square and rectangle die set   to cut the rectangle and squares out.
 I stamped the Prima Marketing Julie Nutting Witchy Poo using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on three patterned papers in the Authentique - Nightfall paper collection along with stamping this stamp on cream card stock.  I cut out each stamp and cut out the hat, dress and collar and glue these pieces on the cream cardstock.  I colored her face, stocking and hair with Copic Markers and used the Beacon 3 In 1 Advanced glue to adhere on the card.  I used the Authentique - Nightfall and Graphic 45 - Rare Oddities - Brew and Potion throughout the tri-shutter card.  I glued along the edges of the card a punched out Martha Stewart spider web. 




I used the Prima Marketing Melange Vintage Art Pebbles throughout the card for the finishing touch.  I stamped three bats on black metallic cardstock found in the Prima Marketing Julie Nutting Witchy Poo stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then stamped on the same image with an embossing pad and used the NUVO Glitter Black Noir embossing powder with a hot embossing gun before cutting these bats out and adhering on the card with glue.  The NUVO Black glitter embossing shows the bats better than just stamping it with black ink.  The Hocus Pocus sentiment and All Hallow's Eve along with other patterned paper can be found in the Authentique - Nightfall paper collection.

Below is a tag made with the same paper collections in addition to Wild Rose Studio Vianna Sentiments of Get Well Soon.

Gift Box for a Special Person

Welcome back and excited to share with you a gift box and handmade foam flowers that I made for a very special someone's birthday that is today.  I love making personalized gift boxes and filling it up with special gifts.

I used the gorgeous Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper and glued it onto the wooden box with the Beacon Advance 3 In 1 Advanced glue.  I added Prima Marketing Havana Say It In crystals  throughout the top after gluing the flowers with a hot glue gun on top the the Heartfelt Creation Decorative Medallion die cut from white cardstock.  I made the white bow from May Arts 1.5" wide ribbon and added a pearl and rhinestone embellishment.

Before gluing the paper, I glued blue ribbon behind the paper.  I typed the sentiment on the computer and cut it out and glued it behind the Prima Marketing metal label.  I used the Prima Marketing white gesso and Prima Marketing Art Alchemy White Pearl on the metal label.  I used a hot glue gun to glue it on the paper.

The foam flowers can be made using the LeCrea Foam Flower sheet and a light orange and red soft oil pastel crayon sponged lightly on the petals before using the hot iron and shaping each petal. I cut out the leaves by hand and used my fingers to shape each one.  I added orange and dark green oil pastel crayons that were sponged around each leaf.   The gorgeous butterfly was cut out from the Lemon Craft Vintage Time Labels 032 cardstock and NUVO Glitter Gloss pen was applied to the butterfly for that beautiful shimmer.


I used the same Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper collection and Lemon Craft Vintage Butterflies around the inside of the box.
I used the Prima Marketing Memory Hardware Petite Frame and colored it with the Prima Marketing clear gesso and Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Ginger Spark paint.
I typed name on the computer and printed.  Then I stamped the sentiment below the name using the Wild Rose Studio Cats in The Garden sentiment.  If you are a regular visitor to my blogs, you have seen this stamp set used often on my projects and cards.

Magnolia Tilda Sitting Witch Halloween card

Welcome back and Nancy Hill. I am excited to share with you my Halloween step card made with the adorable Magnolia Sitting Witch Tilda and Magnolia So Spooky Pumpkin stamps.  I would suggest looking on-line for tutorial and instructions on making step cards.  Also, there are craft companies that make dies to cut out step cards.  

Uni Ball Medium White Gel
 I never used a Magnolia stamp before and I was very impressed with the quality of these stamps and how easy it was to use.  I always use a stamp tool for all of my stamping like the Tim Holtz stamp tool and if I am coloring it, I highly recommend the Memento Black Tuxedo ink pad since this ink will not bleed when using the Copic Markers.  I colored the witch and pumpkin with Copic Marker and used the wonderful Uni Ball Impact Medium Gel Pen White Bold for the cheeks.  In the past, I always struggled with the white gel pens and threw them away after a couple months but after six months,  I haven't had any problems with the Uni Ball Medium White Gel and highly recommend this to everyone.   This white ink flows out quickly and evenly and each time.

I used the Tattered Lace Step Card die set to make the frame.  
I used the Pion Designs Witching Hour and Authentique Night Fall papers for the step card and used the adorable tags for the inside of my card that are included in the Authentique Night Fall paper pads.

The sentiment, bats and witch are from the Prima Marketing Julie Nutting Witchy Poo Stamp set.  I used an embossing pad and NUVO Glitter Black Noir embossing powder.  I love the NUVO embossing glitter embossing powders that come in a variety of gorgeous colors with beautiful glitter.  On both ends are the Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Melange Vintage Art Pebbles which comes in a variety of colors.

I cut out two of the tags from the Authentique Night Fall 6" x 6" paper pad for the inside of the step card and used the Beacon 3 In 1 Advanced glue for my card.

Magnolia Sitting Witch Halloween Card

Welcome back and Nancy Hill, I am excited to share with you another of my Halloween cards made with the adorable Magnolia Sitting Witch Tilda and this time with the Prima Marketing Julie Nutting Witchy Poo stamp of the bats with the gorgeous Graphic 45 Time To Flourish October paper.

The spider web is a Cheery Lynn Design die.

I stamped the Magnolia Sitting Witch Tilda with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out. If you ever plan to color your image, it is important to use inks such as the Memento to stamp your image.  Otherwise, there is a difference in inks and some inks will bleed with black ink through your colors with Copic Markers.   I colored her with Copic Markers and then used a black Copic Markers around the edges of her.  I used the Beacon 3 in 1 Advanced glue to glue the witch on the Graphic 45 Time To Flourish October paper. I love the Beacon 3 in 1 Advanced glue since it dries clear and sticks any embellishment very well on paper and wood.   I cut out the sayings and the patterned paper border from the same paper collection below the image.  The adorable bats are from the Prima Marketing Julie Nutting Witchy Poo stamp collection. 

I added the Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Ingredient Melange - Vintage Art Pebbles on the card and in the center of the handmade bow with a hot glue gun for the bow and glue for the paper.  I love the using the Prima Marketing Melange crystals and pebbles for that finishing touch to a card or project.

Wild Rose Studio Cats in Garden Stamp 

I stamped the Wild Rose Studio stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  I added the NUVO Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss pen to the water can and flowers.  The sentiment is from the adorable set of Wild Rose Studio Cats and Moon Greeting stamp set.  I used an 1" circle punch to cut out the circle and added a scallop circle behind it.  I adhere the Wild Orchid Craft Sweet Blossom flowers around the scallop circle.  I always use the Prima Marketing or Scor-Tape to adhere my bows and ribbons to my cards.  This time, I used the Prima Marketing Memory Hardware Artisan 1" Double-side Tape  to adhere my bow onto the card.

Wild Rose Studio Llama Mum and Baby Cards

Welcome back and today this is my blog, Nancy Hill, for The Rubber Buggy. The Rubber Buggy on-line store carries all of the adorable Wild Rose Studio dies, stamps and paper pad and supplies to make those precious cards for your love ones that I am sharing with you today.   

 I am so excited to share with you my two cards, Christmas and Birthday, made with the adorable Wild Rose Studio, Llama Mum and Baby stamp. 
Wild Rose Studio Llama Mum and Baby
Both cards were stamped with the Wild Rose Studio Llama Mum and baby stamp and Memento Black Tuxedo ink and colored with Copic markers.  You will want to use the Memento inks if you are coloring your images with ink markers since other inks will cause the black ink to bleed into your image.  I like to give this ink a couple minutes to dry before using my ink pens or just dry a couple second with the hot embossing gun.  I sprinkled white embossing powder around the Llama and used a hot embossing gun to make a snowy scene.  I used the Beacon 3-1 Advance Glue to glue this onto the ole Spellbinder die frame.  The background patterned paper is from the beautiful  Wild Rose Studio Birds and Berries 6" x 6" paper pad along with the Wild Rose Studio Holly Vine Corner die.    
Prima Marketing Melange Sugar Crystals
Wild Rose Studio Holly Vine Corner dieWild Rose Studio Birds and Berries 6" x 6" paper pad
 
NUVO Glitter Drops - White Blizzard.
I added some beautiful Prima Marketing Melange Sugar Crystals and NUVO Glitter Drops - White Blizzard.  The NUVO White Blizzard glitter drops coordinates so well with the Prima Marketing Melange Sugar Crystals, both having the high glitter and texture of sugar.  You can see some drops of NUVO Glitter on the photo below on the tiny pine branches  between Christmas and Merry.   


Below, the Happy Birthday card was made with the beautiful Wild Rose Studio Poet's Kitchen paper pad and tthe Wild Rose Studio Vivianna Greetings stamp set. 
 I use this stamp set often with my Wild Rose Studio cards since there is two Happy Birthday stamps made in different waves which gives of more of a choice on how the sentiment will show on cards.  All of my cards will have embellishments with glitter and shine.  I finished this card off with the Prima Marketing Melange Sugar crystals, 4mm flatback pearls and the NUVO Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen on the presents.

Both cards were stamped with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink  and Prima Marketing Artisan  Adhesive 1" double-sided tape was used to adhere the front of the card to the card frame.  The Beacon 3-In-1 glue was used to adhere the layers. 

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.

Lemon Craft Yesterday Birthday Card for Daughter-in-law

Welcome back and I am so excited to share a card that I made for our special daughter-in-law's birthday.
I am really loving the Lemon Craft Yesterday paper collection for my cards and projects.  Lemon Craft Yesterday comes in the 12" and 6" square paper collection pads.  Lemon Craft has a variety of other gorgeous papers that are available at The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  

This card measure 17mm square with the patterned paper measuring 16mm.  I used the 
Prima Marketing Memory Hardware Artisan 1" tape to adhere the front of the card to the card frame as well as adhere the bow to the card. I love using this tape to adhere any bow or ribbon to my cards because if I don't like how the bow is positioned on the card, I am easily able to take the bow off and reposition it on the card a few times until I am satisfied with how my bow is laying on the card and the tape remains sticky each time.

I used a Microsoft Word to type this sentiment.  I used a floral stamp with light brown ink and stamped it around the sentiment before gluing the chipboard frame on top of  the sentiment.  I colored the chipboard with Prima Marketing White Gesso and then with Prima Marketing Butterfly Spell and Prima Marketing Vintage White Gold wax.  I added the Wild Orchid Craft 15mm pink roses and these tiny Wild Orchid flowers on the frame.  
I added the Prima Marketing Melange Sugar Art Pebbles on the card and on the corner metal embellishments.  Prima Marketing has a variety of gorgeous crystals for your cards and projects that are available at The Rubber Buggy.  I took a photo of the new Prima Marketing Melange Sugar Art Pebbles so that you can see the different sizes and gorgeous colors.  I used the small pebbles and used the Beacon 3-1 glue to adhere the pebbles around the card.  I just love the glitter to these pebbles.  I plan on using this jar of Sugar Pebbles on the Christmas and winter birthday cards this fall.  
Prima Marketing Melange Sugar Art Pebbles
On the metal corner embellishments of the card, I used the Prima Marketing Clear Gesso and let dry for a few minutes.  I applied the Prima Marketing Butterfly Spell Sparks which add such a nice shimmer.  By the way, if you don't like what colors added after the Gesso, it is so easy to clean the metal embellishments off with warm water and a little rubbing it off with your fingers or a washcloth to start over again.  
Don't throw those little bits and pieces of paper that was left over.  Just glue these pieces to the back of the card using the Beacon 3-1 Advanced glue to make a collage and stamp your name on it.
