Captured Adventures 49 and Market project at The Rubber Buggy

Hi... Bev here today at The Rubber Buggy.  I am sharing this page showcasing Jules playing soccer when she was little. For this project I am using 49 and Market products - Captured Adventures paper Collection - their chipboard set - their stamp and flowers. 

The Rubber Buggy Products:

For this page I am using the Let's Get Sketchy sketch so I worked on the base background following the sketch below.

From there I laid out the proposed positioning of the photos and the image and also placed some accent pieces where I hoped they would suit.

I did some stamping in the areas around the photos - above and below.

In the close ups you get a better view of the details.

Chippies and flower cluster.

Central section with lots of accents but the photos are still front and centre.

Thanks for stopping by... hope to see you again soon
.... but in the mean time be sure to stop by the STORE where these items and so many others are available. Also take note of all the products that aren't carried in our regular local stores. ... AND the service is A1.

Magnolia Stamp Spring Birthday Card

Spring will be here soon and The Rubber Buggy has all of the wonderful name-brand products and supplies for your spring and Easter projects and cards.  Better get yours soon before these gorgeous dies, stamps, papers, etc. are sold out.  
Hi, Nancy and excited to share a birthday card made with the spring theme.  I just love the gorgeous pastel colors during this time of year.  I used two Magnolia Stamps, Tilda and Her Bunny and Magnolia Stamps, Tilda Tulip Walkway for the image and colored it with Copic Markers.  I stamped the Magnolia Stamp Tulip Walkway on white cardstock and colored.  I stamped the Magnolia Stamp Tilda and Her Rabbit on a separate white cardstock and fussy cut her out and then colored her with Copic Markers.  I used the Beacon 3 n 1 Advanced glue to adhere Tilda on the Walkway.  I used a sewing machine to stitched the frames together using the dark pink frame cut out from the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Orchid paper collection.

I cut out the Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday To You with pink glitter cardstock and adhered the sentiment to the  Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle small die.    I handmade the flowers cutting the flowers out with the Heartfelt Creations Arianna flower die set with the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Orchid paper.  Since the Heartfelt Creations Arianna flowers are not available, I would highly recommend using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die set.   

I used the Heartfelt Creations 3D Basic Shaping Flower mold to shape the flowers and used the Beacon 3 n 1 Advanced glue to assemble the flower. First cut the flowers out.  Second, set in the mold and lightly sprint the back of the petals.  Third, run the mold through the Sizzix Die Cutting machine.  Fourth, take the flowers out of the mold and poke a hole in the center of the flowers, folded the string of the pearl stamen found in the Heartfelt Creations Bridal Bouquet stamen, pull through the hole and use a hot glue gun on the back of the flowers to adhere the stamen on the flower.  I cut out the excess glue and string and used a hot gun to adhere the flowers on the Heartfelt Creations Leafy Accent die cut out.  I adhere flowers and leaves using the Beacon 3 n 1 Advanced glue on the card.  The gorgeous border is also in the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Orchid paper collection.  I cut it out and framed the bottom of the card.

Mixed Media Masculine 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.

Masculine cards can at times be difficult to create, but with the right tools, you can create an assortment of masculine cards.  For these cards, I started with the Gel Press to create assorted backgrounds.  

And while you have the Gel Press out, make a bunch of papers that can be used for future projects.  This saves a lot of time, plus it's so much fun to look at the papers you have already created and figure out how you want to work with them!

When creating masculine cards, use burlap (rather than ribbon), gears (rather than flowers) and more subtle/grungy colors like browns, blues, greens.  While I have do yellow and red in my backgrounds, you can see with the additional embellishments that they are more masculine.

Cut the background papers to size and mat with cardstock that enhances the paper you created.

I chose an olive green cardstock for this card as it picked up the more muted colors in the background.  I also used a stencil with molding paste to add some definition.  A scrap of burlap added to the masculine feel.

I also used Tim Holtz Ideaology Mini Gears on both cards, adding a touch of color with Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Metallique Wax to add a bit of color.

I chose to add dark green cardstock to this  card as it picked up on the green highlights in the paper.  A larger panel of burlap helped set the masculine tone before adding the gears.  I created a tag made from another sheet of gel press paper, matted it with cardstock and slipped it behind the burlap.

The phrases are from Poppystamps.

 Thank you for visiting

Memories layout page at The Rubber Buggy

Hi it's Bev here at The Rubber Buggy. I am sharing a "dream" page using a photo of my eldest Grand Daughter and her friend spending time together. I am using Ciao Bella Le Repubbliche Marinare Collection, 49 and Market Flowers and lots of other products.  With the colouring in the papers I chose to use the chipboards naked to coordinate ... perfect colouring match.

Other: stickers,  pearl flourishes, paint,

For this page I paint splattered in green and stenciled in gold. I then fussy cut on right side to slide in a piece of dark brown burlap type accent ribbon.

Next I chose the circle panel for a photo background, pulled basic alpha letters for the word "dream" and also grabbed more chipboards and added sticker to the cluster.

In the close up views you can see the floral accents in better detail.


Thanks for stopping by... hope to see you again soon.... but in the mean time be sure to stop by the STORE where these items and so many others are available. Also take note of all the products that aren't carried in our regular local stores. ... AND the service is A1.
