Divine washi & fabric tape

Hi everyone!

I'm playing with washi, I got the Prima divine washi & fabric tape and it's gorgeous!!

I'm a bit new on the washi and banner trend (I know I'm slow, but I'm doing my best to catch up), please help me and tell me what I could have done to make it perfect:)

I'm liking how the colours pop layered on black, but now I'm thinking I should have gone for a tag instead of a card - help me and I'll make that my next project crediting you!

Products used from the rubber buggy:
Prima Divine washi and fabric tape
WOC hip rosebuds
WOC open rose 25mm
MFT die-namics flourish

Thank you for visiting!

Shaped Magnolia Card 'Tilda sitting with butterlfy' by Deb.x

Hi all it's Deb here and it's my day to post here at The Rubber Buggy.  I have made a shaped Magnolia card using one of the new Tilda's & I just love her...how adorable?!! She is 'Sitting Tilda with Butterfly' from the new 'Once Upon a Time `13' collection as of course all you avid Magnolia fans will allready know - how loyal & enthusiastic are Magniolia fans?!! ;)
My card is sporting beautifully my new and long awaited purchase in the form of one brand spanking new Martha Stewart clay kit...& WOW...I LOVE THIS KIT!!! How soft & pliable is the clay? I just can't get over how soft it is - it's really feels more like sponge! 10 out of 10 for ease of use & same again for results (see white clay corners & frame), Iookin' good!
 The card blank is die cut with Go Kreate Frilly Frame #5. Papers are by Prima and have been inked and sewn around the edges. I've also used Doo Hickey Lovely Fence & So Wrapped Lovely dies and Tim Holtz Butterflight Movers & Shapers die to make the 2 larger butterflies.

Skin: Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo 
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Cheeks: Aged Mahogony
Dress & butterfly body: Pumice Stone, Frayed Burlap
Tights & butterfly wings Victorian Velvet, Aged Mahogony
Shading: Pumice Stone, Walnute Stain, Black Soot
I added Crystal Glamour Dust to the tights & butterfly body and Crakle Accents to the butterfly wings.
Above shows Tim Holtz Butterflight on the edge die, bottom layer cut from coreogated card taken from an old box & top layer cut from Core'dinations Whitewash cardstock - as is Floral Oval Spellbinders die.  have been inked with Walnut Stain using a blending tool.

DT Project Saturated Canary Balloon Wishes by Kelly

Hi everyone it's Kelly and I have my weekly design team project to show you for The Rubber Buggy.    I used the image Saturated Canary Balloon wishes which you can get, as well as many other amazing Saturated Canary stamps in many styles.  I made a giftbox for my daughters little friend for her birthday.  It's all about the bright colors, which led me to do some purple hair.   I just love it!  I have the copic colors listed below.   I hope you can see which ones are shown.  So check it out and leave me a comment to tell me what you think of purple hair?  Should it stay or should it go?  Hee hee!  ~Kelly Walkelmol

Magnolia 'Ice Tilda' tag by Deb.x

Morning Crafters I am posting today for a post I scheduled for my Saturday slot & for some reason didn't get published - my appologies, I'll get it right third time around (I hope!).
Today I have simple a tag card with coloured Magnolia image.The 'tag card' is folded at the top so it opens tent stlye, basically it looks like a tag & opens like a card. To make I create a 6x4" tent fold card blank and with the card in portrait orientation trim one of the top corners (either with scissors if your free hand cutting is ok or with a trimmer if prefered), then turn the cut off corner piece over back to front & position over the other top corner to use as a guide - this way the conrers will be of equal size and angles (just ensure you get it the correct orientation when cutting).

Image is 'Ice Tilda' from the 2011 Christmas collection, I colour with Tim Holtz Distress Inks onto watercolour paper. The glitter is Crystal Glamour Dust and is applied to the skirt, ice boots, collar and ear-muffs.
Distress Inks:
Skin - Tattered Rose, Pumice Stone
Hair - Antique Linen, Pumice Stone
Ear Muffs, Collar, skirt & boots - Milled Lavendar, Pumice Stone
Hand muff & socks - Pumice Stone

Dies Used:
Spellbinders Ovals
Spellbinders Fancy Ovals
Spellbinders Fancy Tags 3

In My Garden

Hi everyone, Steph here today.

These Bildmalarna stamps are perfect to use together.  I stamped the Mimosa I Forgot on  Copic Xpress- It cardstock,  then stamped the Mimosa Fence.  Using a mask on the main image helped create the illusion that she is standing in front of the fence. 

I colored the image with the following Copic Markers:

Skin Tones
Floral Favorites
Bold Primaries

I created a large circle for the image to sit on and surrounded her with beautiful floral paper from Prima's Londonerry paper pad.  Then I wrapped some beautiful May Arts Grossgrain Ribbon  around the card before adhering the circle.

Thank you for visiting today.

Prima Hello Pastel 12 x 12 layout "Family"

Hello everyone it's Kelly.  You may have noticed that I have been doing quite a bit with the Hello Pastel collection, well there is so much you can do with this paper and embellishments that I am addicted and cannot stop.  I wanted to share with you a layout I made to enter over at the Prima BAP challenge but almost everything you see you can purchase over at The Rubber Buggy.  
This was a very simple layout and didn't require a lot of time so it's one that would be easy for anyone to do and not feel intimidated about as I do sometimes with the more detailed projects.

I used:
Hello Pastel 6x6 paper line
Hello Pastel flower embellishments

Magnolia Pop-up card with Masking Tutorial

Hello Rubber Buggy fans I'm Deb from Manchester, England and this is my very first post for The Rubber Buggy! Firstly my upmost appologies as this should have been posted on Saturday, which will be my day to post.
I have made a Pop-up card with a scene background I created by using a masking technique. Please see the tutorial below on the masking technique.
Above the sentiment is by LOTV on a Spellbinders oval die, layered over a Spellbinders ornate oval die cut from Bazzil cardstock. Flowers are a mixture, small white ones are by Kort & Godt and berries are by Magnolia.
The Tildas are 'Hello Little Butterfly' and 'Kneeling Tilda' from the Butterfly Dreams 2011 collection. The stone path is from the same collection, the cloud is from the With Love 2013 collection, and the wishing well is actually a Pixie Cottage stamp.  

All the images have been coloured with Distress Inks & highlighted with Crystal Glamour Dust.
The Pop-up elements have been added by creating a 3D box (shown below). Begin by cutting a cm strip of card then score 4 lines - here the left pop-up is scored at approx 2", 1", 2", 1" intervals to give an idea of size. When folded into a box with the end secured they need to be adhered on the back side and bottom right up to the crease when the card is at a right angle, then position your pop-up element (in this case the Tilda's) and adhere to the front side. The card and pop-up elements should fold away flat when the card is closed, then 'pop-up' when opened.
 Make the scene above in 11 easy steps!
The general principle of masking technique is to stamp the object that is nearest to the point of view and gradually work backwards, in this case the wishing well is nearest to the front so we'll begin with that...
Step 1) Begin by cutting a square of watercolour card approx 5" (I use Langton extra smooth Hot Pressed). Stamp the Pixie Cottage wishing well image slightly to the left hand side.
 Step 2) Stamp the same image again onto scrap paper and carefully cut out.
 Step 3) Position the cut out wishing well directly over the origional image.
Step 4) With the 'mask' in place now stamp the stone path image, positioning so the wishing well is in the middle of the flowers that are on either side of the stone path stamp. (pic shown with mask removed)
Step 5) Re-position the mask then stamp the Magnolia cloud (from the 2013 With Love collection) so it overlaps the laft hand side of the wishing well.
Step 6) (Note: the rest of the card is created without need for the mask) Stamp another cloud to the top right.
Step 7) Position the Stone Path here (to the right of the origional stone path) and stamp.
Step 8) Repeat the previous step with the Stone Path here (now to the left) and stamp again.
Step 9) Now turn the stone path stamp upside down so that the stones are at the top. Position as shown above and stamp.
Step 10) Stamp again slightly to the right (try to fill in the gaps with stones).
Step 11) Lastly I finished by adding some tiny butterfly stamps from a Hero Arts sentiment stamp set.

Magnolia love

Hi all!

It's been a while since I had the chance to play with this awesome and super adorable sweetie, Bubbling Tilda. I had the best time putting this card together and had several inspiration sources.

I coloured her with my copics (a growing collection) and some other alcohol pens.
Skin: E50, ivory, satin, R01
Dress: C0, C1, C3
Hair: E50, E53, E55, E57
Wings: R000, C0

To create some structure and interesting elements I used glossy accent crackle medium on her wings and some diamond stickles. Spring is trying to come through here in Gothenburg, so I was inspired by the colours and the light - which I hope shows in my card.

For a oval die cuts check out the store. Here I used spellbinders label 10, but Kellie stock gorgeous decorative ovals on the website both from Spellbinders as well as MFT. I created a little cluster of flowers and sprays using the Magnolia chandilier garland in green and wild orchid flowers.

To soften the card I layered pearl centered lace from the store on top of grossgrain ribbon. I created a banner using MFT banner dies to hold the sentiment SMILE from TGF's newest release.

I finished the inside as well, I stamped the image again in distress ink tattered rose, to make it seem like a watermark.

Products from the store:
Bubbling Tilda
Copic markers
Magnolia chandilier garland, green
WOC cherry blossoms, coloured with LSG salt water taffy starburst spray
WOC open rose 10mm, coloured with LSG salt water taffy magical
WOC open rose 15mm, coloured with LSG salt water taffy magical
Spellbinder & MFT dies
distress ink, tattered rose
Pearl centered lace
Grossgrain ribbon
Stamping supplies (Memento ink, copic paper, scor tape)

I hope you like it!
Our current challenge is all about lace, we would love for you to join.
