"Capture" using Blue Fern Studios Collection and 49 and Market Flowers

The paper is from The Rubber Buggy store and I used lots of Blue Fern Studios Home Spun Collections along with amazing 49 and Market flowers. I used copic markers on the chippies and used Tim Holtz Oxide inks on the stenciling.When crafting I also use Beacon 3-in-1 Glue.

The Chipbaords, the super cute flair button accent and the stencil are from Creative Embellishments.
 The ScrapRoom June Sketch Challenge showcases the sketch below. I did a major change throw the central photo section because I wanted to use only 1 photo so no banner of photos on my page. I did however go overboard on all the amazing fun circles in the sketch. I even used a circular chipboard frame.
 To finish the page off I added black pen stitches and some fun bling crystals and dots.

In the close up views you can see all the details better.

Amazing clusters around the framed photo.

Amazing flowers and gem stones and enamel dots.

Another fun cluster of products.

Thanks for stopping by..... see you again soon.
Be sure to visit the links for the store for viewing the amazing products I get to use.

Vintage Steam Puck Journal

Welcome and sharing my first handmade vintage steampuck handmade journal for my older grandson's birthday.  If this is your first time working with the steampuck theme, you are not alone.  I am learning from each project of what I will do different for the next one.
If you are looking for vintage parts for your vintage steam puck projects, The Rubber Buggy on-line store carries the supplies you will need from Prima Marketing, Tim Holtz, etc.  I also went to the hand ware store for a few more trinkets like the hinges to add besides adding the burlap to the side of the journal.  Occasionally, I pick up junk jewelry at thrift stores to add to my vintage projects like this blue stone and chain.  

Ciao Bella Codex Leonardo 
I started with the gorgeous Ciao Bella Codex Leonardo cardstock and used the Prima Marketing double sided-self adhesive 1" wide tape over a brown leathered journal.  I used a brush to apply gesso to coat the paper for the colored inks and paste for the stenciling. I purchased the Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Basics Mixed Media Essentials  This gessos comes in three tubes of black, white and clear I used the black gesso on the stencil and let dry and then colored it with a little bit of Prima Marketing Rich Copper wax.  I selected the gears, handle and parts and took an evening on arranging how I will arrange this on this cover besides looking on google and Pinterest on how other people did their steam puck crafts before gluing it together.

Like I mentioned before in my first mixed media project, I really love the Prima Marketing Metallique Wax - Rich Copper and Prima Marketing Metallique Wax White Gold because of the metallic shimmer on the gears.  I used my fingers to apply this on the gears and the wax dries very slow so you can add or smear off what you don't want.  I added dabbed with a brush different colors of the Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Extravagance Rust Effect Paste - Metal Rust These jars have a sandy texture which brings out the rust effect on the trinkets.

I hope I have inspired you try out these mixed media products that are 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!

Your Kindness spreads like sunshine

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. 

This amazing Wild Rose Studio stamp - Bunny and Butterfly - was colored with Copic Markers and then fussy cut.  

I used Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony stamps and dies to create the flowers, then used a stylus from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to form the flowers.

I used Beacon Adhesives to adhere the flower layers together.  Holding the center with the stylus while the glue dried will help them stay together as well as retain a flower shape.

I created a card from Bazzill cardstock, then used Lemon Craft's Violence Silence papers to create the layers.  I used Spellbinders dies to create the center panel.

Flower flowers and leaves were adhered in the corner and Nuvo Crystal Drops were added to their centers.  The sentiment is from Art Impressions - Watercolor Sentiment Stamp set.

Thank you for visiting

Lots of cards made using your Stash from The Rubber Buggy

Today at The Rubber Buggy I am using lots of things from your stash and sharing lots of cards using what I found. It's amazing what you can create with lots of odds and ends from papers, accents, chippies, lace , cutting dies and using lots of layering and popping things up. 

The first one has lots of flowers, doily. die cut border and layers. I used Heartfelt Creations paper and some 49 and Market flowers.

This card I used Heartfelt Creations papers, some homemade die cut shaped flowers and some fun chippies coloured with copics.

This card is centred around a copic coloured image, a few die cut accents, and layers of print with cardstock mixed in to pop the layers.

This card is another image copic coloured with a cool die cut border, sentiment and a cute button with tied thread for and accent.

Using Heartfelt Creations paper I fussy cut a slit into the background paper ... then slipped a die cut coily with added colouor circles to make it pop. I added some brads and lots of layers for colour.

This card is more Heartfelt Creations scraps with cardstock matting. The sentiment is cut from the paper and I used a border and single flower. 

All of these are quite simple but fabulous with lots of layers and accents. I challenge your to get out your stash and create some cards.
Visit the STORE to view all the amazing products available .... 
lots of manufactures you can't get just everywhere.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Happy Father's Day Card

 Welcome nd Nancy Hill, Design Team for The Rubber Buggy.  Father's Day is June 17th and I like to make cards for my sons and husband.  I am not going into detail on how to make this since this is my first mix media card one and still learning.  My goal was to make it as rustic as possible since we live on a farm and lots of rustic farm equipment around.   I looked at numerous tutorials and examples to learn a few techniques on how to use mix media supplies and how others layered some of their cards with gears and clocks.

I cut out the top left section of the Ciao Bella Leonardo rice paper and sprayed the back with adhesive spray to adhere to a sheet of red/brown cardstock.  The embossed paper behind it was embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.

Ciao Bella Leonardo Rice Paper

What I did learn is the love of certain products that will get you started with mix media.  First - the need for gesso to coat the paper for the colored inks and paste. I purchased the Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Basics Mixed Media Essentials  Gessos that comes black, white and clear.  This will be step one in coating the paper before adding the different colored paste and inks.  

The Prima Marketing Metallique Wax are so beautiful when applied to these gears and clocks and easy to apply as well as wipe off before the ink dries. This wax reminds me of applying the old shoe polish.   I especially love the Prima Marketing Rich Copper with the White Gold since it adds just enough sheen to the gears and background paper to give it nice rustic and metallic look.  
 I added the different colors of the 

Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Extravagance Rust Effect Paste - Metal Rust except for the green this time.  These jars have a sandy texture which brings out the rust effect on the gears, nuts, and watches.  I just use a brush to dab on some of these colors on these metal embellishments.

Products used 
Tim Holtz Timeless Clock Faces
Tim Holtz Mini Pocket Watches
Sizzix/Tim Holtz Diamond Plate & Riveted Metal Embossing Folder

I hope I have inspired you try out these mixed media products that are 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!
