Super easy Christmas card

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a super easy project for The Rubber Buggy.
These Christmas cards are perfect to mass produce if you're shorthanded on time.

I die cut MFT snowflakes to work as masks, it even worked out as well that I could reuse them a couple of times so I did not have to die cut new shapes for each card - time saving :)

I then sprayed them in a couple of different colors with shimmer sprays (I used LSG starburst sprays, but there are plenty of beautiful colors in the store), embossed a greeting (I used gold tinsel and silver), wrapped some twine and voila!

I then added the card to a sturdy background paper as the watercolor paper tend to curl. Bazzil cardstock is perfect for this, really heavy weight.

I hope you try it out!

Products from the store:
Shimmer spray
Distress watercolor cardstock
Magnolia rubber stamp, A MERRY CHRISTMAS (text)
Embossing powder
Bazzil cardstock

Fall colours with summer collections

Hi everyone!

I'm back with another card for The Rubber Buggy and by now the fall is right upon us in Sweden.
As I live by the coast, the weather most of the times can at least be described as windy :)

Although I know Graphic 45 released By the Sea as a summer collection, I couldn't help but be inspired by the windiness and made this card.

I've also experimented with the distress ink as water colours and I had a ton of fun. Even though I would not say that watercolour is my strong side. Simply put, I need more practise - a lot more :)
I also tried some masking technique with a torn post-it, to create to look of land...

I also made embellishment by using stamps from the same set with distress ink on Prima design paper. Really quick and easy, just stamp and fuzzy cut! Ok, depening on your fuzzy cutting abilities... I just assume I'm one of the slower ones, so you should be able to do it faster :)

Products used from the store:
Graphic 45 cling stamp By the Sea #1
6x6 Prima paper pad seashore
12x12 paper Prima seashore, sea memories
Distress ink weathered wood
Distress ink iced spruced
Distress ink crushed olive
Distress ink brushed corduroy
Stamping supplies (bone folder, score tape, scissors, watercolor distress cardstock, archival ink, watercolor brush)

The Rubber Buggy is bringing Lawn Fawn to the table

Hi everyone!

Great news :D
Kellie is bringing in Lawn Fawn to The Rubber Buggy store - YAY!!!

I can't tell you how excited I am!!

So in honor of the new brand I used a stamp & die set from my stash - season's tweetings winter sparrows.
I'm very happy with the way it turned out, mixed with products from the store such as Graphic 45 and Magnolia.

I've sprayed the WOC poinsettia with LSG glory of the sea gold and removed and the green leaves. I also changed the middle part for a flat crystal. Since I was in a hurry (my craft time is somewhat limited nowadays) the die cut leaf is painted with a wink of stella pen (clear), but you can also use the prima shimmer spray or perfect pearl from the store...

Products used on the card:
Lawn fawn seasons' tweetings winter sparrows stamp & die set
Magnolia doohickey tag (similar)
Copic markers
WOC poinsettias
Spellbinder's shapabilities foliage
WRS circle greetings
G45 papers, various collections (Eeirees tale, place in time)
Bakers twine, orange

I hope you liked it.
Don't forget to check out the store for the new Lawn Fawn products.

Thank you for visiting!

I entered this card in Lawnscaping's fall challenge.

Father's day card (My Favorite Things)

Hi everyone!

So father's day coming up in Sweden and if you follow me you know I have a special reason to celebrate this year :)

I had a blast making this card and it came together a lot faster then I thought, which was a pleasent surprise as my time has been some what limited nowadays. I have to admit that I splurge on the huge retirement sale that's going on at the moment and fedex international priority shipping made it in 2days - which made it just in time.

I've followed the sketch from MFT's sketch challenge - MFTSWC201
On the inside of the card I just stamped the sentiments from the clear stamp set. The potty stamp is from the Enjoy the journet stamp set.

Products used on the card:
MFT die-namic speech bubble frame (love this one!!)
MFT die-namic boy meets girl
MFT die-namic paper doll boy boarder
MFT stamp set clearly sentimental about fathers

I hope you like it :)

Thank you for visiting!

Brahm's lullaby layout

Hi everyone!

I'm here with another layout for The Rubber Buggy.


I've used G45's collection Baby 2 Bride again together with some elements from other G45's collection such as Le romantique, Little darlings and Once upon a time. You can also hint a thin boarder from the paper I used to mat some of the background pieces. That's also a paper from G45, a curiosity shoppe. So you see how easy it is to combine the different collections no matter what theme.

The layout is a picture of my sleeping baby boy and the title and journaling is the lyric of the Swedish version of Brahm's lullaby. I've focused on embellishing with roses. The large background 12x12 has small roses scattered. I also used Le Romantique stamps of roses as an element across the page. The journaling card from the deluxe collection already has roses, but I've added a fuzzy cut element from Little Darlings to cover the figure in the circle on the journaling card as it didn't fit with my theme. The title is written with stickers from the little darlings collection, but the other smaller stickers "lullaby" & "rock-a-bye" is from Baby 2 Bride.

Products from the store:
Graphic 45 deluxe collection baby 2 bride
