The Rubber Buggy challenge - Bloom & Butterflies

Hi everyone!

I'm sorry for this late post.
We're having a new exciting challenge at The Rubber Buggy for you!
This month it's butterflies and blooms :)

Here is my card and it hold a lot of fun products from The Rubber Buggy's store.
I didn't plan to make it as nautical themed from the beginning, but I just adore the colour from the Magnolia paper and the stamp from Prima seashore was perfect to combine with it. I had a blast colouring the image with Tim Holtz distress ink and the rest just followed.

The image is die cut and embossed with Spellbinders nestabilites label one. The top layer is made using Rangers' water color cardstock. I used the clear stamp from Prima seashore collection and stamped with archival inkm, which is water resistant. Then I used the distress ink to watercolor the scene.

The sprouts on the butterfly is just a cut off stamen from one of the WOC flowers.

Products used from the store:
12x12 Magnolia paper sea breeze mythical ocean
Spellbinders nestabilities label one
Prima clear stamp sea shore #1
Wild rose studio clear stamp circle greetings
Magnolia rubber stamp sea banner
WOC large wild roses
WOC tulips
WOC open rose 15mm
Tim Holtz movers and shapers mini butterfly set die
Distress ink iced spruce
Distress ink evergreen bough
Ranger watercolor cardstock
Stamping supplies (smooth cardstock, archival ink, embossing powder, tape, watercolor pen, hot glue)

Thanks for visiting!

I'm entering this in Creative embellishments June challenge - include something nautical

Altered gift bag and tag for The Rubber buggy

Hi everyone!

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

I've altered a paper bag. I dry embossed it and hid the "ugly" crese with some lace and pearl ribbon. Super easy! I will never stop doing this :)

The tag was also fun to make, but a bit more time consuming. Once I started I just kept going :) The bird is embossed with tingsel gold - love the glimmer!
The chipboard and flowers are coloured with glimmer sprays. I've used LSG, but you can easy find your own favorite amongst those gorgeous Prima color Blooms. 

I've also added charms from my stash to the tag, but there is a wide selection in the store as well.

Products used from the store:
Tim Holtz alterations die CAGED BIRD
Magnolia rubber stamp DANCING QUEEN TILDA
Magnolia rubber stamp SEA BANNER
Copic markers
WOC 20mm open rose
WOC tulips
Bakers twine SEAFOAM
May arts ribbon SHEER BOXPLEAT
Stamping supplies (smooth cardstock, embossing powder, hot glue, scissor i e)

Thanks for visiting!

Hi everyone!

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

It's a mini gift box!
Perfect for smaller occasions :)

You can use the WRMK gift box punch board, if you'd like it really quick and effortless. But I used my good old scor pal. I should admitt though - I had to redo both the box and the lid, twice...

The flowers are of course coloured with glimmer sprays. I've used LSG, but Kellie has finally received a new lot of gorgeous Prima color Blooms.

Products used from the store:
12x12 Magnolia sea breeze paper MYTHICAL OCEAN
Magnolia rubber stamp SEA BANNER
Prima collection clear stamp 1 SEASHORE
WOC 15mm open rose
WOC tulips
WOC cosmo daisy
Stamping supplies (adhesive, scissor i e)
