Congratulations on Your Graduation


Welcome back and I am excited to share a shabby chic Graduation card.  Hard to believe that graduation is here already.  The Rubber Buggy has all of those name brand products with wonderful customer service for your next project.


Pion Design Sweet Baby Forget Me Not
I love the quality and patterned papers of the Pion Design collections.  The Rubber Buggy just received the newest arrivals of the Pion Design.  Also, I cut out the lace paper and butterfly from the the Pion Design Linneaus Botanical Journal paper.   I used my sewing machine to stitched the edges.

The scroll was made using the Prima Marketing Vintage Art Decor-Louis mould with the Prima Marketing Paper Clay and another one with the Stamperia Soft Paper clay to try out the brands.  So far, I prefer the Stamperia Extra Light Soft Paper clay but will need more practice with the Prima Marketing Paper Clay.   
Make sure to sprinkle baby powder or regular corn starch in any mould before using inserting the  paper clay in the mold.  Otherwise, you most likely will have problems with breaking the scrolls when getting the scrolls out of the mould.  Also, I use just Beacon 3 n 1 Advanced glue when my scroll breaks getting it out of the mould.  I used a paint brush and applied white gesso from the Prima Marketing Finnabiar Art Basic collection to the scrolls.  When dried, I sprayed some water on my coral ink pad and applied the ink on the scrolls along with some Prima Marketing Gold Rush colored metallic paste.  I used the Beacon 3 n 1 Advanced glue to adhere the scrolls on the card. 

I typed and printed the sentiment and die cut it with an oval die.  I sponged the sentiment along with the edges of the card with the Tim Holtz Distress Antique Linen ink and framed with a chipboard that was coated with Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Rose Gold  paint.

I used my fingers to apply Prima Marketing white gesso from the Prima Marketing Finnabiar Art Basic collection and then Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Rose Gold wax to the metal corner embellishments and used a hot glue gun to adhere the metal to the corner of the card.  I used my fingers and applied the same wax along with the Prima Marketing Gold Rush on top of the wax to the chipboard.  I end up with a lot of gold fingers that washes off with soap and water.  

 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!

Miss Stampin Bella Uptown Girl Party Time

Time to Party!!!  Welcome back and I am excited to share a birthday card for my grand daughter's birthday.  I just love this little Stamping Bella - Uptown Girls - Eva Loves to Celebrate along with the gorgeous Lemon Craft Sense and Sensibility paper collection.   I colored Eva with Copic Markers and cut out with a Sue Wilson Designs - Noble Dies - Double Pierced Rectangle
stitched frame die. I glued on some lace with Beacon 3 n 1 Advanced clear glue around her skirt.  I added 3mm flat back pearls around the outside frame.  I made the LeCrea Design foam flowers and paper flowers with various Heartfelt Creation flower dies and added a handmade bow behind the flowers.  I sewed on one layer of the blue paper and used my fingers to distress the edges of the paper.  I used 1/2" wide Scor-Tape to adhere the scallop lace to the edge of the horizontal cut out paper that also had the edges distressed with my finger nails.  For the finish touch, I adhered 6 mm flatback pearls such as the Attic Pearl to the top and bottom of the card.

Baby Easel Card

I had so much fun making this easel card for a baby shower.  I used the Tattered Lace stroller die with the Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily die which is my favorite doily die due to the perfect size for most of my cards.  I had made the baby using a mold and paper clay.  I colored the baby is Copic Markers since I wanted soft and pastel colors.  The gorgeous paper is Graphic 45 Baby to Bride.  I added some Wild Rose Studio roses next to the baby.

Birthday Card

Welcome back and Nancy, here.  I am excited to share a birthday card made for my granddaughter made with the beautiful Lemon Craft Sense and Sensibility paper collection.  



  I cut out the front of the card with a rectangle frame die and sprinted some water on the edges on the back of the paper for that tattered worn out appearance.  Again, I  used my finger nails on the edges to wear out more of the edges to give it the tattered look before lightly sponging on some Tim Holtz Distress Tattered Rose ink colored cream on the edges for the old vintage appearance.  I used my sewing machine and sewed the top layer to the cut out Lemon Craft patterned paper that was cut out with a larger rectangle frame die.  I used my finger to smear the chipboard with Prima Marketing Vintage Silk Metallique Wax.

 I copied the sentiment on Word and printed it out and cut it out with a circle die.  I used the
Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced glue to adhere the chipboard and sentiment onto the card. Before I added the flowers, I cut out some cheese cloth and glued on the card before adding the handmade flowers.

I handmade the flowers using foamiran and Cheery Lynn Design, Lady E Design and Elizabeth Craft flower dies  and adhered the flowers on the card with a hot glue gun and added a handmade coral colored bow.     I cut out the leaves using the Heartfelt Creations Leafy Accent die set and edged the leaves with a darker green before molding and shaping the leaves and gluing behind the flowers.

Samples of this gorgeous two-sided paper in the Lemon Craft Sense and Sensibility paper collection.  I used the left top corner below for this card.

Stamperia Provence Gift Box

Welcome back and I am so excited to share another birthday gift box that I made for one of my grand daughter's birthday.  I filled it up with chocolates and teenage girly gifts.  I have so much fun making these gift boxes with the wonderful products and supplies from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.
The Stamperia paper collections have gorgeous papers to cover boxes.  I started off with the Stamperia Provence 12 x 12 paper collection pad which I use often for shabby chic cards and projects. 
Doesn't the lace on top of this box look so real.  This was cut out from the Stamperia Provence paper collection.  I made the flowers using the Heartfelt Creations  Classic Rose die and  out of foamiran floam.  I added the Heartfelt Creation Bridal Bouquet stamen in the center of the flowers except for the rose.  I colored the stamen with yellow ink as well as colored the flat-back pearl centers of the flowers with ink pens such as Copic Markers pens.   I colored the chipboard frame with my finger tips using the Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Opal Magic Vintage Silk Wax.  The gorgeous paper patterned frame inside the chipboard and the word Hayden was also cut out with this gorgeous paper collection.  I cut out a butterfly found in this paper collection and adhere pearls below the butterfly.


This is the side of the box with this paper collection.  I love the light wooden patterned paper in the Provence as well as the Stamperia Lilac collection.


Stamperia Lilac Flower 12 x 12 Paper Collection

I cut out the lace with the stitched looking paper from the Stamperia Lilac Flower paper collection along with the Lavender tab.
Here are a few past projects made for The Rubber Buggy blog using this gorgeous Stamperia Lilac Flower 12 x 12 Paper Collectionand Stamperia Provence 12 x 12 paper collection pad

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.

Easter Gift Boxes

Happy Easter and Welcome back.  Nancy, here, and I am  excited to share my Easter gift boxes made for each of my grand children.  You will find all of these wonderful products and supplies at The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  I had so much fun making these boxes and so will you.  

All of these gift boxes were made using the 
Lawn Fawn Easter Egg Frame die set.  I just love this die set.  

These boxes were made using the Heartfelt Creation Flowering Dogwood collection with handmade dogwood flowers from this set, Magnolia stamps:  Tilda With Lace Pants, Spring Kitty CatTulip Walkway, Puppy Love Wiola sets and Lemon Craft Sense and Sensibility papers.
I had so much fun making this for my grandsons and one grand daughter.  The adorable dinosaur stamp and dies are from the Lawn Fawn Rawrome Stamp and die set.   I had some flower lace and used a hot glue gun to adhere the lace to the front of the frame before gluing the stitched frame to the image.  The gift box on the right was made with Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Woodland paper, stamp and die collection.

Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Wonderland Collection - Landscape die and stamp
Made this gift box using the Wild Rose Studio Spring Bunny stamp set along with the Heartfelt Creation Flowering Dogwood - Chapel stamp.

 The pink egg-shape is from the Lawn Fawn Easter Frame and it also cut out the egg-shaped image.  I should have purchase the other Lawn Fawn Easter Egg shaped die set for my base for my boxes but instead, I just used a pencil to draw the outside of the largest die and cut it out before adhering the frame and image on the egg-shaped base.
 Special Technique:  I found out with trial and error and using a hot glue gun and adding the ribbon on the back of the egg-shaped frame appears better than gluing it behind the base.  Also, if there is a mistake or some hot glue strings or glue bumps showing, just use a hot embossing gun and melt it away.  Also, I use the hot embossing gun to remove excess glue from a project.  
 You can see the gorgeous frame and 3-D effect by adhering the frame with the ribbon on top of the image.
In my stash of old dies, I found a box die set and made these boxes with the same patterned paper are the front.  I used a hot glue gun to adhere to the front.  These boxes were stuffed with jelly beans and chocolate eggs.  I used a hot glue gun to adhere Velcor on the inside of the tabs to shut the boxes.

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!

Sweet Lacy Tilda and Easter card

Welcome back and Nancy here and excited to share my Easter card with you made with the adorable Magnolia Stamp Sweet Tilda With Lace Pants made with the beautiful Stamperia Provence paper.  Please visit The Rubber Buggy on-line for all the fun products I've used today.
I stitched the Stamperia Provence papers with my sewing machine to the main frame besides using the Beacon 3 in 1 Advanced glue first to adhere the layers of papers together.  I adhere the Lawn Fawn  Easter Egg die along with the Lawn Fawn Happy Easter Border die sentiment that was cut out using the Stamperia Provence paper and pink cardstock for the sentiment.  One advantage of having the Lawn Fawn Easter Egg die set is that the frame is cut out leaving the egg shape as well.  Therefore, you get two cut outs in one die through the die cutting machine.  I really love the separate stitched egg shaped frame.
I handmade the flower using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die with the Heartfelt Creations Rose mold and used the Beacon 3 in 1 Advanced glue.  I poked a hole in the center of the flower and inserted about 8 strings of the pearl stamen from the  Heartfelt Creations Bridal Bouquet stamen collection.  I adhere a handmade bow behind the flower and used a hot glue gun to adhere to the card.

Stamping Bella Love Cupcakes

Time for making spring cards and paper crafted projects.  I have so many spring birthday cards and gift boxes to make for each of my grand children and children for this time of year.

The Rubber Buggy on-line store has all of the name-brand supplies and products for you to make your gorgeous spring cards and paper-crafted projects.  I really love crafting with the Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood collection of papers, stamps and dies besides their other products.  I made my card using the Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood paper along with the Stamping Bella Uptown Girls Caitlynn Is Having a Cupcake Party stamp.   I always use Copic Markers to color my images.  Below the Stamping Bella Caitlynn is the Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday To You border die cut out with pink metallic cardstock.  I framed the stamped image using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Square die and added 3mm flatback pearls around it.  I cut out the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die set and ran these petals through the Heartfelt Creations 3D Floral mold before assembling the petals with the Beacon 3 n 1 Advance Glue.  I adhered using Scor-Tape the May Art pink bow behind the image.  On top of the card, I cut out three Heartfelt Creations Fleur Border borders dies with green cardstock and used the Beacon 3 n 1 glue to adhere it to the back of the pink patterned paper.

Brighten someone's day and send your springtime birthday card today using the name-brand products on The Rubber Buggy on-line store.
