Beautiful ballon card

Hi everyone!

Kellie at The Rubber Buggy is stocking the store with some pretty awesome products at the moment. I see mixed media and art journaling in the future :)

Here I am again with some old techniques. I mixed tumbled glass, chipped saphire and seedless preserves distress ink on my craft mat. Misted it some and ran my watercolor cardstock in it and it became this wonderful background.

I just have the perfect stamp set in my stash from MFT - up up and away. The clouds are stamped in chipped saphire and the air ballons in the background is stamped in weathered wood. The sentiment is stamped with memento ink in tuxedo black. The beautiful ballon die cut from Memory box is also cut from watercolour cardstock and rubbed and misted with milled lavender. I then edged it with seedless preserves and stamped tiny dots to add sturcture with a clearstamp from Kaisercraft.

To finish the card I topped it of with some flat back crystals:)

Thank you for visiting!!!

Tim Holtz technique with G45

Hi everyone!

I hope you all are fine and crafting away :)

With spring just around the corner and the days starting to be a little brighter and longer in Sweden, it's hard not to start thinking in pastel and light colour schemes. Here is a tag I made for my DT at The Rubber Buggy

Here I have returned to where I started with Tim Holtz classic background technique where he just dabs the ink pad on a craft sheet and mists, then dabs the tags in the colour to create the background.
Loved the subtle and shabby effect that came out. I then stamped the postcard in various angles with the tattered rose, some bumble bees in milled lavender and the leaves with bundled sage. Doesn't it really looks like G45 soft pastel palette? I can really see this tag work with sweet sentiment and botanical tea. I used perfect pearl over the tag, unfortunately the camera wouldn't pick it up.

Products used from the store:
G45 ivory tag album
G45 stamp set #3, FRENCH COUNTRY
G45 staples, shabby chic ornate metal keys
G45 staples, shabby chic ornate metal keyholes
Perfect pearl BISCOTTI
Distress ink, BUNDLED SAGE
Distress ink, TATTERED ROSE

I hope you liked it!
It was so much fun using this technique again:)

Thanks for watching!

Easy made card with paper bow for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

Here is a quick, easy and fun card to make as my DT-post for The Rubber Buggy.

I folded a doily and masked some chicken wire with distress ink. Then my fav part was the paper bow. I've seen many of you use this type of bow for a long time, but if you know me I'm a bit of a slow starter. I've always prefered (and struggled) with ribbon and trim instead. But no more, I'm so hooked on these babies now - LOL!

Products used from the store:
6x6 Maja Design, SKÄRGÅRDSLIV
TCW stencil 6x6 mini chicken wire
5x5 Doilies
Tim Holtz distress ink, PEELED PAINT

Thank for visiting!
