Ciao Bella Microcosmos Birthday Card

Welcome back and Nancy, here.  Everyone loves flowers. The Ciao Bella Microcosmos paper collection has beautiful and colorful details of the flowers and the magnificent world of butterflies and dragon flies in this gorgeous paper collection.   This paper collection contains 12 textured sheets of double sided 12" x12" paper, 24 different designs.  Also inside this paper pad is a wonderful 2021 monthly calendar.  

Please review Bev Code's video on the Ciao Bella Microcosmos paper.  She had a very well detail of this collection that is also available in rice paper and background paper that coordinates with this paper pad.  Check these available supplies at The Rubber Buggy that coordinates with Ciao Bella Microcosmos paper pad by clicking HERE.  


All of the cardstock shown below in the photos are from the Ciao Bella Microcosmos paper pad including the gorgeous monthly 2021 monthly calendar.

The card measures 6" x 7 1/2" with a 1/2" center for the inside pocket.  I cut the base with a heavy white poster paper of 7 1/2 x 12 1/2" and scored at 6" and 6 1/2" lengthwise and fold. I use my scoring bone on heavy weight paper for the best fold after scoring.   I added some Prima Marketing labels and clock.  I handmade the flowers using the foamiran foam and flower dies.  I cut the clock from the paper pad and added a doily behind it.  I added the clock parts and flower to the center.   I typed my sister's name and cut it out and adhered it to the back of the Tim Holtz-Idea-ology Ornate Plate that was colored with  Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Alchemy Vintage Silk and Vintage Gold wax.
 I cut out the strip of butterflies from the pad to make the pocket.  Cut a 7 1/2" x 2 1/4" strip of butterfly paper and score each side at 1/2" and 1/4" and fold. The 1/2" fold will be glued to the card.  Before you do this, cut another strip of 6" x 3/4" and score at 1/4" on each sides and glue to bottom of the pocket strip before gluing to the card.

I added the gorgeous label in the Graphic 45 Policy and Decorative Die for the pocket as well as the back of my card for my name.  I typed the sentiment and printed it out and used spray glue to the intricate Graphic 45 cut out die to adhere to the card.  I cut out the beautiful butterfly from the Graphic 45 Staples Tag, Pocket and Butterfly die set.  



  
I added a pink/coral 1/2" wide seam binding ribbon to the center and outside of the card and adhered it with the 3/8" wide Scor-Tape.


I cut out some of these tags and monthly calendar from the paper pad.  I added a frame around the tags and calendar using my Brother's Scan and Cut machine since I didn't have dies to fit these tags.  I used the Graphic 45 Clock and Square tag die set for the calendar and used my Brother's Scan and Cut machine to enlarge another tag to fit behind the Graphic 45 tag.

Happy Fall with Penny Black's Gathering Stamp

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.  

As we head into our next season, I want to wish everyone Happy Fall.


I stamped the Gathering Stamp from Penny Black with Lawn Fawn Licorice Black Ink.  Next, I colored her with Copic Markers.  In order to die cut the image, I first cut around the basket, fitting the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Die so the basket would remain intact.


While still in the die, I lightly inked around the image with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Faded Jeans using a Ranger Ink Blending Tool.


The card was created using Bazzill cardstock and the new Photo Play Gnome for Thanksgiving 6x6 paper pad.  This double sided paper pad has 24 papers with 2 of each design.  This leaves you lots of options to work with.  The wordy paper was matted with cardstock then wrapped with May Arts Sheer Ribbon before being added to the card on a slight angle.


The image was edged with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Bundled Sage,  matted with a Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Die, then placed on the card with Scrapbook Adhesives.


Finally, I used the reverse side of the wordy paper to die cut Lawn Fawn's Happy Fall Line Border Die, placing it above the image with Tattered Lace Detail Glue, which is perfect for these smaller die cuts.



Thank you for visiting

The background paper is the Lawn Fawn 6x6 or 12x12 Single-side  Hello Sunshine paper that comes in a 36 page pad with 12 coordinating designs.  Also I cut out the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Border die set and Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border for the card.  I always love using the Lawn Fawn Simple Puffy clouds die with the adorable smiley face for part of the background of my cards.

Stamperia Designed 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.

Stamperia has a line of decorative chips that can be used for assorted projects.  I've used the Rose and Butterfly chips to create my cards today.


Start by inking the leaves and flowers with Copic Markers.  Then lightly ink the lattice panel with Tim Holtz Squeezed Lemonade Ink.  Use Tattered Lace Detail Glue to adhere the panel to the card base.


Using Liquid Pearls in Dazzle and Garnet, fill in the roses.  Use Liquid Pearls in Electric to fill in the leaves.  Place aside to dry.  Once dry, I added some more liquid pearls to fill in the cavities.


Along the right side of the card, add a strip of Bazzill Gumdrop Cardstock.  Ink the Stamperia Butterflies with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Ink and adhere just the bodies to the cards, leaving the wings free.  Hello Friend, from the Memory Box Bird Sanctuary Clear Stamp set was stamped on Marshmallow Cardstock with Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Ink, die cut and matted with Gumdrop Cardstock.  It was added to the card with Scrapbook Adhesives for dimension.


For my second card, I chose to ink the roses with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose and Fired Brick Inks.   The leaves were inked with Bundled Sage Ink.


Using Maja Designs Shades of Sweet Coral, Tear the panel and ink with Fired Brick before adhering to the card.  Stamp the dots in Black Licorice Ink using a stamp from the Bird Sanctuary collection.  Also stamp Hello friend on a scrap of the Coral paper.  Assemble the card and adhere the roses and leaves.  Place the sentiment across the bottom edge and place one of the left over leaves on the strip.

Graphic 45 Farmhouse Birthday Card

Welcome back and Nancy, here to share a fun card made with the Graphic 45 Farmhouse collection.  Take time to remember life’s simple pleasures of watching the sunrise from the front porch, walking down a country road, having a chat with a good friend, or enjoying our animal friends. All these simple, good things about life are celebrated in this Graphic 45 Farmhouse collection.  Cards and projects covered with this country and fall colored paper are gorgeous enough to set out as home d├ęcor with the fresh country vibe. 
The 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" birthday card is filled with farm/ranch goodness with a fun pocket for tags and a gift card made with the Graphic 45 die set that holds a gift card or gift certificate or chocolates. etc..  I just love the colors and country theme in this collection especially since we live on the farm and most of our relatives were raised in the farm/ranch country on our prairie.  
I made this card especially for my sister-in-law whose favorite time of the day is to sit on her porch in the afternoons and visit with with friends and family that stopped by for a friendly chat.   
The Graphic 45 Farmhouse collection has a Farmhouse Cardboard stickers with this clock but I used the Graphic 45 Staples Dies-Square Tag and Clock die set and cut out the clock with black cardstock, added the patterned paper cut out with a circle die and then the Farmhouse sticker in the center.  I used the Scraphbook Adhesives 3D black foam squares on the back of the clock.

Graphic 45 Paper Collection with Graphic 45 Stickers Included

Opening this style of card is really fun because the inside pocket reveals all the goodies and sweet sentiment inside.  I am just loving using the Graphic 45 Policy and Decorative Die sets for making vintage style labels, lace and the largest die for a small envelope/pocket.  
This is the back of my card with my name.  I cut out the Graphic 45 Policy and Decorative Die with the lace die in black cardstock.  I fussy cut the chicken to cow and stamped my stame on the pig.  


This card base measures 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" when closed, Here’s how to create the card base.
  • I use heavy poster board paper for my base frames to prevent warping for larger cards.  Measure and cut a 6 1/2" x 12".  Score at 6 1/2".  I cut out 6 1/2 square black cardstock and used Beacon 3-n-1 Advanced glue to adhere to the poster board paper.  
  • My pocket on the inside measures 2" x 6 1/2".  I cut 2" x 7" strip of paper and scored 1/4" on each side and folded at the score lines.  Take glue and glue a little strip on the bottom and on the edge for the pocket to open up.  Then fill with another ephemera card and a little chocolate treat.  I filled this pocket with tags and 
  • Embellish the tags with ribbon and Wild Craft Chrysanthemums flowers along with using the Graphic 45 Farmhouse stickers for the tags on black cardstock. I just stuck the stickers on black cardstock and cut a 1/4" frame around it.   I used yellow brads for the label on one Graphic 45 Farmhouse cardstock sticker to be adhered to the pocket.  Additionally, you can fill this pocket with Graphic 45 Farmhouse ephemera cards and a little chocolate treat.
 I used the lace die in the Graphic 45 Policy and Decorative Die die cut with black cardstock for the back of this card.  


Thanks for your visit today!  I hope this card inspired you to get your order into The Rubber Buggy and have a bit of fun in your next crafty adventure!.  The Rubber Buggy has the crafting supplies for your next project.   My cards and projects are always posted on Saturday and would love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Hello Friend - Thinking of You

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 used the Memory Box Bird Sanctuary Clear Stamp set for my card, stamping one of the birds with Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Ink on Bazzill Marshmallow Cardstock.  Use an art dauber to add a touch of  Ranger Tea Dye Ink to the bird's wings.


Because I wanted the bird to sit along the bottom edge of the card, I first die cut it with Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Die then matted with a larger scalloped die.  I cut off the bottom edge so it would sit along the bottom edge of the card, then stamped the phrase, also from this stamp set, in red ink.    I also stamped a second phrase in Black Licorice Ink on a strip of white cardstock.

 

The card was created from Bazzill Candy Bar Cardstock and a sheet of wood grain paper was added as the base layer.  The die cut bird was added to the bottom edge.   After matting Hello Friend with brown cardstock, I wrapped twine around the panel then added it to the card with Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Adhesives.  



Finally, I used Ranger  Liquid Pearls in Oyster around the card.

Stamperia Sweety Planner

Welcome back and Nancy, here. Today, I have a 2021 Deluxe Monthy Planner purchased on Amazon altered with Stamperia Sweety  collection to share with you! It’s always nice to start a new year with something sweet. The Stamperia Sweet Memories Chipboard was also used for this project.   Last week, I made the birthday card out of this paper collection that will be given with the planner.  Click HERE to see the birthday card.

The Stamperia Sweety paper is so completed to do this planner with the gorgeous venice lace, chocolate, cupcakes and tea cups included in this paper pad. The Stamperia Sweet Memories Chipboard was also used on this project.   


Make sure to check out the additional Stamperia Sweety collection of moulds, chipboard,  that are sold separately and available at The Rubber Buggy:

Stamperia Soft Moulds - Tea timeSweety
Stamperia Die Cut/Sweety
Stamperia Chipboard Sweety and Stamperia Sweet Memories Chipboard






I used a hot glue gun, Scor-tape and Beacon 3-n-1 Advanced glue to adhere the lace, flowers and cardstock on the planner.  I poked out the Sweet Memories banner from the Stamperia Decorative Chips - Sweet Memories package.  I sponged on a small amount of glue and sprinkled glitter and adhered it with Beacon 3-n-1 glue to the cardstock.  I used a ole Spellbinder die frame that was cut out with gold metallic cardstock and glue it with the Stamperia journal found in the Stamperia Sweety paper pad.

NEW Stamperia Sweety - 8" x 8" Paper Pad SBBS21


Throughout my planner, I used many of these images found in this paper collection like the tag below that was cut out and glued next to the cupcake.  I added a white doily behind the cupcake with pink flowers and rhinestone embellishments. NEW Stamperia Sweety 12x12 Paper Pad Paper Kit Paper image 5

I placed the sheet of images (below) found in this paper pad  that can be cut out easily with scissors but through my Brother's Scan and Cut and it cut it all out in 2 minutes.  Make sure to use a pencil around some of the images for the Brother's Scan and Cut to identify what to cut out.  For a trial run, you may want to copy it out first and then put it through the Brother's Scan and Cut machine to figure out what images are too light around their edges that you don't want cut out.  I found this out in my trial run that some of the whites inside the images were cut out which I didn't want.

Stamperia Sweety 12 x 12 Paper Pad – My Creative Spirit
I just love placing my chocolates and butterflies around various pages in this monthly planner. 




I cut out a couple of the tags in this paper collection and used my glue to adhere them to these colored tags.  The planner already that these pockets so I covered the outside of the pockets with this paper and placed the tags inside the pocket.  I added a doily to the outside of the circle brown cake and added some of the images that was previously cut out with my Brother's Scan and Cut machine or you can easily cut these out. 


Picture above is the other side of the tags.
