Dress My Craft 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.



Dress My Crafts has some wonderful paper collections and I've used Whispering Love for my cards today.  This paper pad has 24 sheets of single sided papers.


For my birthday card, I used Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Dies, Lawn Fawn Zig Zag dies and Happy Birthday Line Die which were die cut from Bazzill Licorice Twist and Marshmallow cardstocks.




The background is a combination of different papers in this collection which have been torn and a strip of Licorice Twist placed between the layers.


A Penny Black birthday stamp was inked with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped on the white circle.  She was then colored with Copic Markers, matted with the Zig Zag die and added to the card with Scrapbook 3D Foam Adhesives.  Ranger Liquid Pearls in Merlot were added to the cupcake.  To finish, the Happy Birthday phrase was added to the top of the card.


My 2nd card is a 5 1/2" square card from Bazzill Licorice Twist Cardstock.  A sheet from the same collection was added to the card and the roses were fussy cut from another sheet.  For emphasis, the roses were matted with pink cardstock and again fussy cut creating a pocket.


Using Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies, Bazzill Licorce Twist and Marshmallow cardstocks were die cut and then slipped behind the roses.  The phrase from Art Impressions Watercolor Stamp set was stamped on Marshmallow cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then die cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle dies.  It was also slipped behind the roses.

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Gardener

Welcome back and Nancy, here, excited to share a fun card made with the Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Gardener stamp set available at The Rubber Buggy.  This is the perfect time of year for a card that has the gardening theme since so many people are now planting their flowers and gardens this time of year.  She is so adorable with her pot of flowers and flowers in her pocket and what a beautiful sentiment that is included in this stamp set.  

CURVY GIRL GARDENER   Set by STAMPiNG BeLLA   All New   2 image 0
Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Gardener stamp 

I stamped her with Memento Black Tuxedo ink and colored her with Copic Markers.  I used my Brothers Scan and Cut to cut her out but you can also fussy cut her out.

I used the Picket Fence Studio Blender brushes and sponged the background with Ranger Distress Oxide ink Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade colors.  You must always ink those brushes and tap the brushes on scrap paper a few times before sponging/brushing the colors on the paper to avoid the circles and stripes.

I stamped and die cut the flowers twice using the Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Wonderland and also colored with Copic Markers.  I adhered the card with the Beacon 3 n 1 Advance Glue.

The turquoise blue background paper is from the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward Pattern and Solid paper pad.  I finished the card with a Wild Orchid Daisy flower with the jute behind it glued with a hot glue gun.

I had so much fun making these cards and hope you will too.  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!

Anniversary Cards with Tutti Designs

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 had small amounts of Prima Marketing Art Alchemy paints in Flame and Gold remaining so I decided to create some backgrounds by painting the left over paints on Strathmore Watercolor Paper.  It doesn't look very pretty, but the resulting card definitely is! 




I created the card using Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics 1910 with the Tutti Designs Bird Tapestry die.  For definition, I cut the painted panel to fit behind the die.



I added brads to the flowers, then inked the edges of the panel with Lawn Fawn Sunflower Ink and then matted it with Bazzill Gold Coins Cardstock.


The panel was then added to Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics 1912 and Bazzill Gold Coins Cardstock.  It was then added to a pink card with Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares.   


Nuvo Crystal Drops in Party Pink were added to the corner designs.  The phrase, from Art Impressions Watercolor Cling stamps, was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a scrap of Vintage Summer Basics 1912 and pink cardstock.



My 2nd card was created using Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics 1933 and the same Tutti Designs die.  A totally different effect was created.   


I adhered Bazzill Marshmallow Cardstock behind the die cut panel giving emphasis to the die cut areas.  The die cut panel was matted with pink cardstock.


Vintage Summer Basics 1910 was added to a pink card and the phrase, from Art Impressions Watercolor Cling stamps was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Bazzil Marshmallow Cardstock.



I used a Tutti Designs Oval Die to die cut the phrase and a larger mat. It was added to the card with Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares.   Raspberry Liquid Pearls were added to the corners of the card.

Father's Day or Birthday

Welcome back and hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I made this birthday card for my son-in-law and wanted the steampuck theme.  The steam puck is also great for your Father's Day card.  If you are looking for vintage parts for your steam puck projects, The Rubber Buggy on-line store carries the supplies you will need from Prima Marketing, Tim Holtz, etc.  The Rubber Buggy carries these major name-brand craft supplies with fast delivery and wonderful customer services.


Sizzix 3D Tim Holtz Mechanic Embossing Folder 

I cut out gold mirror metallic cardstock and embossed it with the Sizzix 3D Tim Holtz Mechanic Embossing Folder. I brush  the Prima Marketing Finnabair Black Gesso over the entire sheet.  If you use a brush and tap it on, you will get more of a rustic appearance rather than brushing it smoothly.   I used my hot embossing gun to dry the black gesso.  I used the Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Sparks Dragon Eyes along with the Prima Marketing Metallique Aged BrassRich Copper and Red Amber.  Occasionally, I used a dry wipe to spread or remove any excess colors.

I cut out the excess edges of the gold metallic cardstock before gluing and adding the gears that were also covered with black gesso and various colors if these Prima Marketing Metallique waxes.  I used a hot glue gun to adhere the gears to the card and used the Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Glue.  I typed the name Josh and printed it on cream cardstock and used my fingers to sponge on the Ranger Distress Collage Vintage Medium to give it more of the aged look but also Distress Ink Antique Linen would work as well.  I cut it out and glued behind the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Ornate Label Frame which could be substituted with the new Tim Holtz Ideao-Ology Metal Adornament Plates that was also sponged with the Prima Marketing Aged Brass wax with my fingers.


I had so much fun making these cards and hope you will too.  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!

Happy Mother's Day

Welcome back Rubber Buggy Friends and Happy Mother's Day to you as well as those women who are expecting a baby! Nancy, here and excited to share more Mother's Day cards using the adorable Stamperia Little Girl Paper.   The Stamperia Little Girl 12" x 12" is available in individual cardstock or in a pad with 10 double-sided sheets.  Also, there is a Stamperia Little Boy paper collection.  The entire collections are now available at The Rubber Buggy.  



These cards didn't need much embellishments to be added with the embellishments built into the designs.  I could have used the beautiful ribbon design on the paper rather than adding my ribbon and flowers to make this card cheaper to mail but these cards will be hand delivered.
I adhered the Wild Orchid Craft flowers with a hot glue gun.  The frame, stamp and corners are from an old die and stamp set.


I had so much fun making these cards and hope you will too.  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.

Ahoy Matey Birthday Pop Up card

Ahoy, Matey and Arrrrgh you ready to find the treasure?   Nancy, here, with a fun popup Happy Birthday card made this fun  Lawn Fawn Ahoy, Matey and Lawn Fawn Really High Five stamps, die and Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine paper collection with cute rainbows, sunshine, clouds, and buzzing bees perfect for spring and all available at The Rubber Buggy on-line and retail stores.  
These adorable little pirates are so much fun to play with and you will want this in your treasure of craft supplies. I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.   My card measures 5" x 5 1/2".  I cut out the cream cardstock and tore around the edges and crumbled the paper before sponging with the Picket Studio brushes the Distress Oxide inks of a medium and dark brown and the adhered it on brown cardstock measuring 5" x 5 1/2".

 I sprayed the brown edges with water and used my fingers to curl the edges and used Distress Oxide ink and and my Picket Studio brushes to darken the edges again.  I used the same Distress Oxide inks to color the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside die.

I cut out two different hillside borders and glued together with the treasure chest in the front hillside border.  Also, I glued the palm trees tucked behind the hillside.  I cut out several balloons from the Lawn Fawn Really High Five  stamp set, colored and die cut used a ink pen for some of the string along stamping one string to the little girl pirate.  The little presents are also from the Lawn Fawn Really High Five stamp set that was colored and used scissors to cut it out.
I am really loving the Lawn Fawn Popup Happy Birthday die along with the Lawn Fawn Oliver Stitched Alphabet die set that coordinates with this popup.  These alphabet cut outs can be used on anything besides this popup die and also coordinates with the Lawn Fawn Hello Popup die set.  Normally, you would want to use a wire cutter to cut the dies apart since they come attached with a thin wire but I left mine together since I didn't want one lost and it makes it easier to find the alphabet than sifting through the dies.

The yellow sunshine paper and beautiful rainbow paper is from the Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine Paper  collection with cute rainbows, sunshine, clouds, and buzzing bees, so this collection is perfect for spring.

Supplies
Paper: 
White, Cream and brown cardstock
Various colors of cardstocks for alphabet
Stamps: 
Dies:
Inks:
Copic Markers for coloring images
Tools: 
Picket Fence Studio Brushes for sponging the brown
Sizzix Big Shot

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!
