Happy easter from TRB!!!

With easter coming up soon with chicken and eggs I got the splendid idea to show you how to make a wonderful card with Prima's Almanac collection. I love the colours of this collection, but have not yet become a fan of the roosters and chickens. But now I got the perfect occasion to show them:)

Here I have layered and fussy cut elements from the 6x6 paper pad. I've mixed some pastel green & yellow in order to make it more eastery.

Let me know what you think:)

Products you can find in the store:
Prima paper pad 6x6
Paper flowers
Scor tape

Thanks for visiting!!!

New challenge @ The Rubber Buggy

Hello everybody!!!

We have a new challenge at the Rubber Buggy for you to join in.
You need to make a card with a different folding - I made a circle easel card featuring Prima's newest collection Engraver - love love love this paper, it's like it was made with me in mind:)

This paper has so many great elements to use, I fussy cut the tickets and key to embellish the card. I also used some of the scripted paper and postcard.

Card's front

Both front and inside

Tucked and folded

View from the side
Principle of easel card

Apart from the flowers and the 2 tiny bingo cards, everything is from the engraver collection by Prima, you can find it in the store.

So what are you waiting for?!
The only criteria is a different folding and a link to the challenge in your blog post:D

Can't wait to see what you create!!!

St Patrick's day for The Rubber Buggy

So St Patrick's Day is coming and there's a call for shamrocks, pots of gold and bearded little men in tall hats:) And green of course!!!

St Patrick's is relatively low key in Sweden, but like Halloween we're getting there - any cause to celebrate is worth cheering for, am I right!

This week I feature G45 Place in time - love this paper, you will find something for every occasion, all year round in this paper!

I also wanted to show how easily collections of G45 can be mixed. My main element on this card is from the March cut apart, place in time. The background how ever is Olde curiosity shoppe - I didn't embellish it very much in order for you to see it clearly. The checkered background paper is G45, place in time, November cut apart reverse side.

Also from G45, place in time is the cardstock sticker "St Patrick's day greetings" and the chipboard flower. I coloured the trim with Lindy's stamp gang starburst spray Bells of Ireland green and Green with envy green.

Products found in the store:
G45 paper, Place in time 12x12
Scor tape
Lace and ribbon
Paper flower

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Bubbling Tilda

I have a new favourite stamp from Magnolia=D
This bubbling Tilda is from 2010 fairy collection, didn't I say I was the last one to find out - LOL!

I used a lot of layers on this card which is based on the MFT sketch MFTSWC113. I was going for shabby chic, but I'm not sure I understand the concept... If anyone would take the time to explain it to me I would greatly apprechiate that. I'm sure there are more to it than is shown on my card.
