Stamperia Forest Birthday Card


Welcome back and Nancy, here.  Would you be needing a nature or fishing card or project? The perfect start to your forest/nature scrapbooks, cards and more is with the beautiful Stamperia Forest collection! This package contains ten 12x12 inch double-sided sheets with a different design on each side. The Stamperia Forest collection also includes stencils, stamps,  decoupage papers and rice paper.   Everything you need to express your creativity!  I have so many hunters and fishermen in my family which makes this collection ideal for creating birthday and projects for them.  

 The Rubber Buggy has all of the name-brand products and supplies you will want for your next crafting project, scrapbooking or card making.



My card is fairly large measuring 7" x 8" but it was soooo much fun to create for my nephew who is a a fisherman and hunter.    I added the Nuvo Crystal Drops Clear Morning Dew on the bubbles and fish on the patterned paper.  The clear crystal drops added a beautiful glossy appearance on the bubbles and fish and almost made the fish look real.  

I added the large and small green sequins and some beads throughout the front of the card using the 28 Lilac Lane Shaper Mix - Deck the Halls.  I really love the variety of colored sequins, buttons and beads in the 28 Lilac Lane Shaper boxes that come in a variety of colors and mixes. 

 I added the Stamperia Forest Die Cuts chipboard on the front and inside of the card.  I used a hot glue gun to adhere the rope.  I had a fishing lure die that was cut out with metallic copper paper.  This die has been retired a few years ago.

I covered the inside of the card with this paper.  Also, I scanned one of the journal sections found in this collection and used my Photoshop to type and print out the journal with the sentiment. I cut it out and added to the inside of the card.

Previously in the past for other cards, I taped the original journal section on copy paper and print the sentiment on section which is very time consuming since I had to make sure the sentiment would be nicely centered, etc. which would take some trials of printing to get it right before printing on the original patterned paper.

Stamping Bella Cards

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with lots of fun products from the store.  Please visit the store for all the fun products I've used today.



I love the 7 Gypsies Boots & Brollas on Ivory cardstock.  This is a sturdy cardstock with assorted boots and umbrellas.  Creating 5 1/2" square cards from Bazzill Licorice Twist Cardstock, the pattern paper was cut 5" square and inked with Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Ink.  
Using the reverse side, I cut it 5 1/4" square and adhered the papers together.
After wrapping the panels with May Arts Sheer Black Ribbon, the panels were added to the cards.


I love the Stamping Bella stamps and used both Sunny is Stylish and Lolly with her Brollie.  Both  were colored with Copic Markers.  Sunny was fussy cut and added atop a Tutti Designs oval die, with Scrapbook 3D Foam Adhesives for dimension, while Lolly was stamped on a Tutti Designs oval die.  The ovals were then adhered to larger black ovals.


The right side of Lollie's oval was cut off to align with the edge of the card.
The ovals were then added to each of the cards with foam adhesives for dimension.

Lawn Fawn Outer Space Birthday Card

Your cards will be out of this world by creating a scene with the entire solar system and these cute little aliens!  Nancy, here, and I am excited to share my fun to make birthday card with you.  This Lawn Fawn Out Of This World and Lawn Fawn Beam Me Up stamp and die sets are wonderful for special occasions like birthdays and graduations, and for science and space lovers!  The Rubber Buggy has the wonderful name-brand products you will want to create your next beautiful card and craft projects.  

I sponged the background with Distress Oxide inks:  Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber and Lawn Fawn White Ink.  I mixed a little water with white Perfect Pearl powder but white acrylic paint will do as well and used a toothbrush with my fingers to spray on the card for the galaxy for the front and inside of the card.  Before adhering the Lawn Fawn images and clouds to the card, I used a can of Gloss Spray found in a hardware on the card to have a touch of shimmer on the sky for the front and inside of the card.  I let dry for an hour due to my sensitivity to the smell of the spray before gluing the images.


I stamped the images with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  I cut out two Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border clouds for the front of the card with white cardstock and vellum.  I cut out the Lawn Fawn Pop Up Birthday die and sponged on the same Distress inks.  I adhered the card with the Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced glue.  Also, I added a touch of white Lawn Fawn Ink with a cotton swab to the stamped stars.


Thanks for your visit today!  The Rubber Buggy has the crafting supplies for your next project. So have fun crafting this weekend with these products.   My cards and projects are always posted on Saturday.  Keep watching and thank you so much for those wonderful comments as well as suggestions.

Let It Snow Snowflake Cards

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with lots of fun products from the store.  Please visit the store for all the fun products I've used today.

It may still be the middle of summer, but there is no better way to cool off than by creating winter themed cards.



I used Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics 1916 to create both cards, die cutting the papers with PoppyStamps Craft Die - Snowflake Lattice Frame.  As this paper is double sided, I created two cards using both sides of the paper.


Use the Spellbinders Tool 'n One to remove the left over die cut pieces that remained in the die.


Mat the die cut panels with the same paper, then wrap each  panel with May Arts Sheer Light Blue Stitched ribbon.  This gives the cards a wintry feel.


The Maja paper gives each card a wintry feel.


Add the die cut panels to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cards created from Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock and Bazzill Icy Mint cardstock.  Use Nuvo Crystal Drops to create pearls in each of the snowflakes.  Allow to dry completely.


Die cut Tutti Designs Oval Dies from the same paper and place atop the cards with Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam  for dimension.  Stamp and die cut the bench and lamp post using Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park stamps and dies and Lawn Fawn Soot Dye Ink.   Place them atop the oval and add to the card with foam adhesives.


Die cut  Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Let It Snow Line  Border Die.  As the die cut phrase is flexible, you can customize the die cut for your projects.   I wanted to shape them in the form of an arch on my cards.


Finally add Yellow Ice Stickles to the lanterns.


Thank you for visiting.

Home Sweet Home

Welcome back and Nancy, here.  I am excited to share a card I made for a friend for her open house party for their new home.   

 I love making shabby chic cards with all of the vintage trimming and the Stamperia paper and supplies have gorgeous colors and images to do these vintage projects and cards.

You will want to check out the stunning new Stamperia arrivals of papers and chip boards now available at The Rubber Buggy.  My next order will be the 
Stamperia Hortensia collection if it hasn't sold by the end of the month.  

Stamperia Hortensia


I made my card from Stameria Provence paper pad since it had this sentiment on the paper and I haven't purchase the new Stamperia paper collections yet which is on top of my list.  

I made my border using the Prima Marketing Vintage Louis mould from fast drying clay and sprayed it with the pink and purple bottles of Lang Gang Spray Under The Board Walk. I used a hot glue gun to adhere this to the card as well as the Wild Orchid Craft flowers.
 
I used the Ranger Picket Fence Dabber bottle and dabbed it on the metal frames that here adhered with a hot glue gun.  I cut out a butterfly from the paper collection and added it to the card.  

Throughout the card, I adhered the Dress My Crafts-Sequins-Pink Celebration to parts of the card using just the tiny hearts and stars in this jar.  



I used my Microsoft word to type the sentiment on my laser printer since it prints with toner ink so that I can use a foil transfer sheet to laminate the foil on the sentiment.  First I typed out the sentiment and printed it out to get an idea how to arrange it to print it out on the Stamperia paper.  Then I used two-sided tape and taped the Stamperia paper on copy paper and then ran it through my laser printer and then used the transfer foil sheet. 

 Since the sentiment wasn't perfectly centered, I fussy cut the bag of lavender found in this paper pad and adhered it to the right bottom corner of the card to balance the appearance and hide my mistake of not centering the sentiment on this patterned paper.  There is always a way to cover up mistakes in scrapbooking and card making by adding embellishments here and there.  

I had so much fun making these cards and hope you will too.  So have fun crafting this weekend with these wonderful products at The Rubber Buggy.   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!

Rose Birthday Card

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with lots of fun products from the store.  Please visit the store for all the fun products I've used today.



Using Prima Watercolor Paper, spritz it with water and sprinkle Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals  in Urban Amethyst on the paper.  Add more water as necessary until the paper is covered.
Once dry, die cut to fit a card created from Pion Design - Purple V.  Next, use Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock with Tutti Designs Background die.


Nuvo Crystal Drops in Sweet Lilac was used to add additional color to the roses.  Using a Tutti Designs Stitched Oval die, I die cut Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.  A birthday stamp from Penny Black  Transparent stamp set, was stamped on the oval using Lawn Fawn Soot ink.  Inking the edges with Lawn Fawn Fresh Lavender ink, I then placed it in the center of the card using Glue Dots Mini Dots for a little dimension.


What do you think?

Lawn Fawn Magic Iris-Glow In The Dark and Matey

Arrrrgh you ready for adventure? Nancy, here, to share a Lawn Fawn interactive cards made with the Lawn Fawn Ahoy, Matey stamp, Lawn Fawn Fairy Stamp and Lawn Fawn Magic Iris die set all available at The Rubber Buggy on-line and retail stores.  

I would highly recommend you to view the Lawn Fawn tutorial, click HERE, as well as my step-by-step graphic photos of how to assemble the Lawn Fawn Magic Iris by clicking HERE.    I still had problems with assembling the Magic Iris after watching the Lawn Fawn tutorial so viewing my written tutorial with lots of photographics and tips and technique to follow along.  Just make sure to have fairly new tiny glue dots since I found out the hard way that my glue dots were old and dry enough to not adhere with the interactive parts of this card.

My first Magic Iris card was made with the Lawn Fawn Glow In The Dark embossing powder along with the adorable Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends stamp and die set. 

This is a photo of the card taken in a dark closet.   I used a brush to brush on embossing ink and then applied the Lawn Fawn Glow-In-The-Dark embossing powder with the embossing heat tool.

This is a photo of the card outside the closet with the Lawn Fawn Magic Iris closed.
This is the card when the Magic Iris is open.


I just loved how a member on the Lawn Fawn Design Team created her Lawn Fawn Ahoy Matey card with the cave with the Magic Iris die so I used her idea of a cave to create my card.  

For the cave, I used Copic Marker and drew some dark circle to create the look of stones. I cut out some rectangles for the logs for the outside of the cave and sponged on Distress Oxide Ink-Espresso and Distress Oxide Ink-Black Soot.  I used a black marker and tapped in some places of the card to look like sand and sponged a Black Soot ink on the background behind the cave.  I colored the pirates and trees with Copic Marker.  I also cut out the flowers and leaves from the Lawn Fawn I Love You Koala stamp set.
I used 3D foam tape or Scrapbook Adhesive 3D Foam Squares behind the card around the Lawn Fawn Magic Iris to adhere to the first layers of frames and then black cardstock for the last frame on the card that was adhered with Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced glue.  

Thanks for your visit today!  The Rubber Buggy has the crafting supplies for your next project. So have fun crafting this weekend with these products.   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!
