Magnolia 3D-card

Hi everyone!

I have a new card for you at The Rubber Buggy. If you're a follower you'll notice I'm back with another 3D-box card using Magnolia stamps again. Well, what can I say - they're a hoot to make and they come together super easy and fastare than you might think.

Besides the colouring and fuzzy cutting the images, which you might do even if you're just layering them on a "flat" card. The box itself is nothing.

I decieded that I wanted to make my box 2,5" x 2,5" (don't forget to add some extra for the flap that will overlap as closure) and 3" high.

Therefore I started with a paper sized to 10,5" x 5,5". (4x2,5"+0,5") x (3"+2,5") - does that makes sense? If not let me know and I'll try to explain it better for you. There is also a lot of tutorials on youtube, I've just adjusted the measurements...

Then I scored the paper at 2,5"; 5"; 7,5" and 10" across the longer side.
Left one of those "spaces" untouched (That will be the back of your box, I just find that it made it sturdier. You can score it if you'd like to) and scored the remaining 3 at 2,5" across the shorter side.
I cut the scoremarks on the 2,5" - that will create the flaps of the box.

After that it's pretty much just to assemble the box. To create something to hold your cut images and die cuts to just place a "bar" on the top of the box opening and attach it from inside to inside. How many you want depends on how many layeres you want. Good luck! Let me know if you'd like more help :)

Wish-card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

Another  Tuesday with a new project for the rubber buggy.

This card was inpsired by MFT's challenges both the layout and the color combination.

I was really struggeling with the color combination. But then it hit me, Graphic 45 could probably sort me out :)

I love how you can mix Graphic 45's collections - would you guess that this card is made with two different collections? Steampunk spells and French country. Now, don't you just love the colours?

It might show better in the inside that I have used the 4x6 cut aparts from the 12x12 paper pad (French country) to use as my background. On the front of the card I have used layers in the same proportions as the cut apart.

I used a lot of my MFT die-namics on this card as well. The sentiment is stamped on a the wider band from the first place award ribbon set, which I popped up with foam dots on a file tab by MFT.  I also added, in order to follow the sketch, a vintage flourish that I cut and tucked in underneath the chipboard banner. Also, I have used the well worn greetings die set on the inside of the card.

Graphic 45 paper pads
8x8 steampunk spells

Prima seashore card

Hi everyone!

I'm here with another DT-project for The Rubber Buggy using Prima's seashore collection again. I love that collection! The only thing that's not from the collection is the stamp I used on the cut-apart piece, which is an old set I found in my stash (I didn't even remember I had it - time to destash?).

I'm not sure if you can tell by the photo, but I have added some texture and dimension (without adding bulk) to the papers by stamping them with vintage photo distress ink. The blue harlequin has some Magnolia chicken wire in the left upper corner and behind the right upper corner and in the gap where the ornate key from G45 is placed.

The brown postcard/map paper has been distressed with vintage photo as well, but also stamped with the Kaisercraft crackle clearstamp to add some depth. Even the backside of the paper is stamped and distressed where the corner is bent and the torn scrolls shows. I've used both the crackle stamp from Kaisercraft and the post card stamp from G45 French Country #3 to mimic the text and pattern. I'm very pleased with the result and that little extra attention to detail really paid off when the card came together.

Products used from the store:
6x6 paper pad Prima seashore

Magnolia Christmas card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

If you know me by now, you wont be surprised to see that I have played with my Magnolia Christmas stamps already :)
Summer is barely over and I can't wait until Christmas arrive - LOL!

I've been so inspired by all the 3D-box cards, so many of you have shown lately.
Here is a beautiful Magnolia winter wonderland.

There is a lot of paper piecing and 3D-layering going on here. The background is created with die cuts of a Christmas tree, you can find a similar in Magnolia Doohickey Christmas tree. I also have a Mangolia Doohickey tag die cut, which is embossed with bricks. You can find a similar tag here
