Lawn Fawn garden for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a fun project for The Rubber Buggy.

This was actually my husband's idea. He recently planted some seeds and asked me to make him some signs to keep track of what's what.

I added some color by swiping the ink pad om my craft mat and then added water with a watercolor brush. I choose watercolor paper and archival ink because of the risk of water splashes. The signs was then glued to a coffee stick that I had cut in half.

That's really it, super easy!

Products from The Rubber Buggy:
Lawn Fawn stamp set Milo's ABC

Lawn Fawn Birthday card (The Rubber Buggy)

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a happy birthday scene created with Lawn Fawn stamps.

The scripty sayings clearstamps are so narrow and thin, you can easily manipulate them in any shape you'd like to - almost. A slight curve is no problem though.

The scene is made by masking it with a post-it note. I just cut a slope with my scissors, but you could use the hillside dies from Lawn Fawn as well. I only used on distress ink for the ground as well for the sky, just making it more or less intense by going over it randomly with my ink blender tool.

The trees are stamped with fisrt generetion stamping and double stamping, instead of second generation stamping as that turned out to be too light.

Products used from The Rubber Buggy store:
Lawn Fawn 12x12 Let's Polka paper

Lawn Fawn Toboggan together stamp set (trees)

Distressed background card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I have had a card in mind for some time now as my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy, but never gotten around to actually pull out my distress inks. I must get the new colors, I truly still am in love with them.

However, lately I have seen a few cards using the technique I had in mind and they are absolutely stunning. Mine is nowhere near as beautiful, so I'm glad I waited. Otherwise I would probably have abandon the idea.

I used two colors of distress ink. I had three in mind, but I just loved the evergreen bough and tumbled glass so well together, I just stuck with those. I aslo used watercolor cardstock, as I planned to spray the paper with shimmer mist. In the end it would probably have worked fine with regular cardstock as well, as I didn't need that much mist as I thought.

I embossed the sentiment with white superfine detail and I'm amazed with how crisp the small words came out.

All Lawn Fawn hearts card

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a super fun card to make. I rarely use hearts in my crafting. I'm just one of those, I guess... But I have a lot of heart stamps as my collection of Lawn Fawn is growing. I just never figured out what to do with them. Also, to me they all look the same...

But I was inspired by the wonderfully talented Jennifer McGuire and I just thought - that's what I'll do! You can see the video to my epiphany HERE.

And behold, when I got all my hearts gathered together - they are NOT the same :)

Can you see this for Valentine in pink and red :D
