Dare to dream for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I'm trying something out of my comfort zone. Playing with pink tones...

I have to admit, I'm not good at it. So I had to balance it with a lot of white and dark blue.
I've cut the polaroids myself, eyeballing the size. The backgrounds of the photos are just distress paint, which is very opaque and make perfect fake cardstock - LOL!

I colored the stamped images with my copics and fuzzy cut them before I stuck them in the frames. Great tip if you are like me and love colouring hair, but not so much the clothes. I can get away with my misplaced shadows in hair, but on clothes it just looks plain dumb :)

The sentiment "Dare to dream" is part of a Kaisercraft clear stamp. I just masked off the rest "BIG".

Products used from the store:
Saturated canary rubber stamp yoga mamas
Saturated canary rubber stamp Rebecca
Lawn Fawn cuts puffy clouds border
Copic markers
Kaiserkraft clear stamp dream big
Bakers twine
WOC tulips
Lawn Fawn fundamentals ink Freshly cut grass
Stamping supplies (doublesided tape, neenah white cardstock, memento tuxedo black)

Thank you for visiting!

Magnolia o'hoy for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

Out of pure luck, I stumbled across this super cute stamp in my stash. I love, love this stamp, but I had forgotten I had it. I've been fortunate engough to have been on Kellie's design team for so long things are now getting lost in my DT stash - LOL!

I've used Maja Design paper pad skärgårdsliv, a paper pad inspired by coastal scenes outside of Gothenburg. To match the paper I used copic markers (B93, B95, B97 and W3 & W5) to color my image. I was out of matching cardstock, but I have a distress paint in chipped saphire that I colored some white cardstock and voila! I used that cardstock to mat both of my design paper and I also die cut some flourishes. I used a spellbinders label from my stash to die cut my image in an oval, but there are lots of oval dies in the shop

Products used from the store:
Magnolia rubber stamp Dangling Tilda
Copic markers
Distress paint chipped saphire
Maja Design paper pad Skärgårdsliv 
MFT die-namic fancy flourish
WOC carnation
Ice stickles orange peel
WOC hip rosebuds
Petaloo textured blossom moccha

Tags and labels for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I'm here with some easy tags as my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy.

These are the #5 tags by Ranger and then I've cut the paper a sliver smaller to layer on top of the tags. I've used paper from Graphic 45, these tags are perfect to make with your scraps. As I covered the ready made hole reinforcer I just used a brad from my stash, as I don't have a hole punch to match and I couldn't be bothered to fetch my crop-o-dile and put in an eyelet. If you want a little more fiddling, you could also try this layering technique with G45's staple tags, they are gorgeous and already comes with the eyelet.

Products used from the store:
Manilla kraft tags #5
Distress ink vintage photo
G45 paper
Petaloo textured elements blossom mocha
WOC rose 25mm
WOC open rose 15mm
W9plus Handlettered thanks stamp set
Wild rose studio circle greetings
Stamping supplies (doublesided tape, archival ink coffee, scissors, acrylic block, distress ink tool)

Thinking of you

Hi everyone!

I'm here with my design team project for The Rubber Buggy.
Have you seen all the gorgeous stamps from Gorjuss that has arrived at the store? Adorable!!!

Now to my card. The main element on the card is a large 5,5 inch doily which I've decorated with a image from whimsy stamps. She is colored with my copic markers and I've highlighted her wings and hair with my wink of stella pen.
The sentiment"Thinking of you" is a mix of two products from the store. Handlettered thanks from W9plus and Memory box open studio die amazing you. The die cuts are from an old prima collection called divine, but it's no longer in stock I'm afraid.
The flowers are colored with Lawn Fawn ink, that will also work as a watercolor.
