Vlentines Day Progressive Project part 2 & 3


 Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing last week and this week posts. I wasn't able to get my post up as we are having internet issues.  I know many are.  So today I'm sharing part 2 and 3 of my progressive project.  The first piece of this project is a Valentine Mailbox. The second part is the 3 cards which are also progressive. They go from simple to more embellished.  These cards fit perfectly in this cute little Valentine mailbox. 

   When I found this perfect Echo Park Cupid and Co. Collection kit at Rubber Buggy  I knew I would be using it to cover this cute mailbox and make my valentines.   I also used some of these pretty Prima Marketing - With Love flowers - Sweet Sunshine to embellish the cards as well as the mailbox.  I used Echo Park cupid and Co. Be Mine Stamp Set to stamp the hearts and the lips. 








Part 3 of my project is this gorgeous tag also made with the Echo Park Cupid and Co. Collection kit.
I also used some of these pretty Prima Marketing - With Love flowers - Sweet Sunshine to embellish the tag.  I also used some lace, ribbon and buttons from my stash.




Thanks for stopping by today and hope you will give this project a try. The paper is gorgeous and so bright and cheery!

Graphic 45 Valentine's Day Card


Nancy, here, and I’m so excited you’re here.  Today I am sharing a Z Fold card using a the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward February paper available in the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward paper pad or Graphic 45 Fashion Forward February cardstock.  I just love the greetings found in each month of this gorgeous collection of vintage fashionable ladies and the beautiful vivid colors of flowers for each month of the year.  

Fancy-fold cards are always show-stopping cards that will be proudly displayed and a keeper and a Z fold card is an incredibly easy fancy fold card to create. The Z Fold Cards can be formed using just one sheet of plain colored cardstock with one patterned cardstock and a scoreboard with a bone tool and scissors. I have created this z-fold card tutorial so you can add this to your portfolio of cardmaking techniques and new creativity to try out.  Like all the best folds, these cards fold flat to fit into a standard sized envelope. What's not to love?!




Here are the measurements of all the pieces :

Black Cardstock

  • cut at 5 1/2″ x 11″  Score at 3 1/4" and 5 1/2"
  • cut at  1 1/4" x 11"
Graphic 45 Fashion Forward-February designer paper on Flower side
  • cut at 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″
  • cut 2 1/3″ x  5 1/4″
  • cut at 3″ x 5 1/4″
Strips 
  • Black Cardstock cut at 1 1/4" x 11  
  • Graphic 45 Fashion Forward-February Designer paper cut each strip and glue together at 1 1/8" x 11" and glue to black cardstock strip
  • Score at 5 1/2" and 7 3/4"  I added the sentiment from the designer paper to each end of the strip and along the side of the image.  

I cut out the different patterns and glued on black cardstock.  I took my scissors to cut out  a very small black frame since I wasn't sure if I could do this on my cutter with this thin frame.  

I added lace behind my front image and used Nuvo Clear Glitter Glue around her dress as well as though out the card after the card was almost finalized and let dry. I added a handmade bow with a rhinestone heart and used Wild Orchid Craft flowers and a feather behind the pink seam binding bow and in the center of the bow.  I added the feather and then the Wild Orchid Craft flowers to the other side.  

The gold hearts were made using the Graphic 45 Staples Folder & Sentiment heart dies and gold metallic cardstock.  

The card was adhered with the Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Glue

 Have a fabulous crafting day and thanks for visiting.

 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.

Winter Magic with Stamperia

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.



With the Winter season here, I've used Stamperia Decorative Chips - Magic  Winter Tales to showcase on my card.


Separating all the elements, I added color with markers and Ranger Liquid Pearls in Raspberry.  


Once dry, I also used Nuvo Jewel Drops to create the look of snow on the snowflakes.


I created the card using Bazzill Lollipop CardstockBazzill Licorice Twist Cardstock which had been die cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Windy Backdrop Die and Craft O'Clock's Hazy Street collection.  Several tags were cut from the paper collection and added to the card.  Winter Magic was then adhered to the tags.  The snowflake and poinsettia was added to 2 layers created from Bazzill Cardstock and Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Circle Dies.


Inside the card I added a panel of Bazzill Licorice Twist Cardstock and a panel from Hazy Street, both of which had been die cut with Lawn Fawn Large Stitched 4 Bar Rectangle Dies.   Happy Holidays is a Lawn Fawn Border Line Die which was die cut from Bazzill Licorice Twist Cardstock and adhered to the card with Art Institute Clear Adhesive.

Stamperia Sea World Birthday Card



Welcome back and Nancy, here to showcase the Stamperia Sea World and Stamperia Glamour Sparkles.  The Stamperia Sea World collection features the exciting world beneath the sea with exotic creatures. scenic landscapes mixed with steampunk styling to create a fantasy world. The amazing matching papers, cut a-parts give you everything you need to create a beautiful cards, scrapbook, steampuck journal and more.  
The paper is so vivid that some of the gears, cogs, and screws look like 3D but I added the cogs on this card along with the beautiful Wild Orchid Craft flowers and the Stamperia Glamour Sparkle-Bronze added behind the flowers using a hot glue gun to embellish it even more.  Check out the other Stamperia Glamour Sparkles available at The Rubber Buggy to add that special look to your projects and card. 



I added Prima Marketing acrylic paint and wax to the gears and used a hot glue gun to adhere to the card.  This photo shows more of the Stamperia Glamour Sparkle-Bronze behind the flowers.  Also, I added a key similar to Graphic 45 Staples Antique Brass key collection.  Most of the card was adhered using the Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced glue that dries fast and clear.

Mini Album with Ciao Bella Frozen Roses Collection

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.


The Ciao Bella Frozen Roses 6x6 paper collection is a fun collection of  24 double sided papers perfectly suited for winter.   I had a mini album in my stash and decided to decorate it with these wonderful papers.  Bazzill Lollipop Cardstock was used as a mat for each page.  I used large circle dies, but you could also use a plate and free hand cut each page.


Selecting one of the papers for the cover, I used Nuvo Jewel Drops to add color to the flowers by the gazebo.  I used a Lawn Fawn line die to add happy holidays across the top of the album.  


Additional Nuvu Jewel Drops were added throughout the album.


The interior pages are comprised of images from this collection which I fussy cut.


I created a pocket on one of the pages and inserted a tag from the collection tied with  May Arts Sheer Ribbon.  A perfect place to add a sentiment or a photo.


There are lots of berries on these papers so I added Ranger Liquid Pearls in Garnet to the berries to give them dimension throughout the album.


Aren't the papers gorgeous?  They are so detailed and really put you in a winter mood.


Creating a mini album can be a continuous feat, always finding something else to add, so at some point I needed to stop!!!


Thank you for visiting

Valentine Mailbox Progressive Project Pt. 1

Hello friends!  Debbie with you today sharing the first piece of my progressive project. What is a progressive project?  It's a project that has several pieces to it and continues on to other projects that coordinate together.  This one will go into the next 3 weeks or so. The first piece of this project is a Valentine Mailbox.
  
  I bought this fun little mailbox at the dollar store last year knowing I would eventually alter it.  When I found this perfect Echo Park Cupid and Co. Collection kit at Rubber Buggy  I knew I would be using it to cover this cute mailbox.   I also used some of these pretty Prima Marketing - With Love flowers - Sweet Sunshine to embellish it as well as some Ice Stickles in Grapefruit color.



I started by covering the mailbox with patterned paper.  I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the mailbox, however you can use a gel medium if you choose. 

In this paper collection there are lots of tags and cut outs as well as coordinating stickers and Ephemera embellishments you can add to complete several projects.  For this one I used the tags and cut outs that came with the collection.







I also added a few flowers from my stash as well as some ribbon.  Hope you will give this fun project a try and stop by next week for part 2 of this project.
Thanks for stopping by the Rubber Buggy Blog today!

Graphic 45 Fashion Forward Birthday Card


Welcome and Happy New Years 2021 to all of you! Nancy, here to share my weekly card.  I just love the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward collection with beautiful vintage ladies, beautiful encouraging sentiments with gorgeous vivid colors.  I can't wait for you to try out this collection.   
I made my New Years card with the beautiful Graphic 45 Fashion Forward collection to celebrate the New Years.  Each monthly pattern paper in the  Graphic 45 Fashion Forward can also be purchased individually or in the paper pad.    


I made this card using the January sheet along with the coordinating the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward Pattern and Solid paper pad.  I cut out selected pictures and sentiments and added a purple and black  color cardstock frame.

I handmake the flowers using foam/foamiran and added a purple seam binding ribbon behind the flowers.  I added the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward die cuts to the card.  The card was glued using the Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced glue.
I used the back of the paper and framed the inside of the card.  I added the picture to the inside that was using a black cardstock for the outside frame.
I added Jim Holtz Distress Picket Fence Dabber to the metal corners.  After a few hours of drying, I added it to each corner to the card.

 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.
