Beautiful Christmas card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

So these are busy times, first Halloween and then Thanksgiving. But no rest no, just a warm up for the real big thing - Christmas :)

I'm a huge fan of Christmas, the snow, the carols, the lights, the food... Everything really - LOL!

 Here I have made a Christmas card in brown tones with Maja design paper. This is my fav paper collection and I've really been hoarding it. But I think my design really shows of the paper, so I'm pleased with the result. The WOC flowers are coloured with LSG opal sea green and it was a perfect match to the brown tones.

Products used from the store:
Maja design, 6x6 paper pad, it's Christmas time
Magnolia stamp, A Merry Christmas text
WOC open roses 10mm
WOC open roses 15mm
WOC hip rose buds
Bakers twine, champagne
Memento ink, rich cocoa
Stamping supplies

Thank you for visiting!

Steampunk card with Tim Holtz birdcage

Hi everyone!

Have you noticed that Kellie has stocked with some great Tim Holtz Alteration dies in the store?

Here I used the caged bird (I don't actually have the die, but received mine in a swap through CCL), but doesn't it go wonderful with the steampunk spells paper from G45 :)

I coloured the bird with black acrylic paint and the cage is painted with Lumiere sunset gold, I then rubbed some black acrylic paint to distress it somewhat. The black satin ribbon is from my stash, but there are similar in the store.

The top of the cage is perfect to hang some charms in so I added the toad mushroom.

Products used from the store:
Tim Holtz alterations, caged bird
Steampunk spells, graphic 45, 8x8 paper pad
Steampunk spells, graphic 45, 6x6 paper pad solids and patterns
Mushroom charm 
Flat back crystals

Maja Design card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!!!

If you've been visiting The Rubber Buggy lately, you know Kellie has stocked the store with beautiful Maja design papers - yippie!!!
These papers are beyond gorgeous:)

I layered the papers, tucked a snowy roof in between.
I really wanted a ribbon to go across the card, but I didn't have any in the midnight blue that works so well, so I stuck to a paper strip. I covered the snowflake in stickles and stuck a flat back crystal in the middle.

The sentiment of the card is embossed in LSG angel wings gold. It's two-toned embossing powder and so beautiful depending on the reflections from the light. The scene with the trees is made with dies from Memory box from my stash. The layout of the card is based on MFTWSC149.

Products from the store:
Maja design, Vintage winter, 6x6 paper pad
Magnolia stamp, snowy roof
Copic markers (E-serie)
Magnolia stamp, a merry Christmas text
Ice stickles, crystal
MFT die-namic, let it snowflake

Thank you for visiting!

Gift wrapping for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I'm here with another post for The Rubber Buggy,  today I'm showing you how I gift wrap bottles:)
This is so much easier than you think, just arm yourself with your hot glue gun and off we go - LOL!

I took paper from the paper pad and layered it on cradstock, since 8 inches didn't reach completely around the entire bottle. The WOC flowers are coloured with Lindy stamp gang sprays (grab a guy gold, canna lilly burnt orange, cocoa bean copper and van dyke sepia). I tore two layers from a large rose to make it look more like a huge rose bud and I managed to make another bud from the tow layers:)

Products used from the store:
Steampunk spells, Graphic 45 paper pad 8x8
Steampunk spells, solids and patterns, Graphic 45paper pad 6x6
Bakers twine, black
WOC wild roses 40mm
WOC tulips
WOC hip rosebuds
Ranger ice stickles
Magnolia chandilier garland, yellow
May art ribbons sheer box pleated trim
MFT fancy flourish
Tim Holtz mini butterflies

Thank you for visiting!
