'Smile' using Blue Fern Studios Garden Life and 49 and Market Butterfly Harvest

Hi Bev here today. I am sharing a photo of the girls all dressed up... what a great friendship they have. It needed a fun bright page to help with the dark photo on this one. Lots of great products from The Rubber Buggy for this one.... using Blue Fern Studios Garden Life Collection and 49 & Market accents.

Supply List:
Paper: Blue Fern Studios Garden Life - Flower Bed, In Bloom
Accents: 49 and Market Butterfly Harvest
Pen: Nuvo Aqua Flow water colour pen
Chipboards: Creative Embellishments happy words, flourish set 15, hot hexagon panel
Other: mesh beads, sew easy ink roller, Cardstock

In the close ups I give you a better and closer detail view of the layers and accents. Chipboards and accents from 49 & Market Butterfly Harvest are the main accents to this page.

I added some bead strips and used the sew easy ink roller for corner edging.

What a great cluster combo... title  and flourish Nuvo Aqua flow water colored and 49 & Market accent.

I matted the photo which was dark with white and a colour to help make it pop. Not every photo you take is perfect but when it's the only one you have you use it.

The central core of this page is the photo and it's decorated around with amazing coloured accents. It's beautiful.

Cascading Fuchsia

Welcome back to my weekly Saturday blog for The Rubber Buggy Design Team.  I love making flowers and all of my wonderful paper crafting supplies come from The Rubber Buggy on-line store where you have wonderful customer service and very fast delivery.  The Rubber Buggy carries name-brand quality products for you projects.

This week, I made a card using the gorgeous Heartfelt Creation collections of paper, dies and stamps along with using Copic Markers, NUVO Embellishment Mousse colors and NUVO Crystal Drops.

Heartfelt Creations Die - Cascading Fuchsia
Heartfelt Creations Stamp Set - Cascading Fuchsia
Heartfelt Creations Fuchsia Cluster Stamp Set
Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Vine Die
Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia 12" x 12" paper collection
Heartfelt Creations Fleur Border and Pocket die set
Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval Die 
NUVO Crystal Drops - Rhubarb Crumble
NUVO Embellishment Mousse Peony Pink
NUVO Embellishment Mousse Mother of Pearl
Copic Markers
Ranger White Embossing Powder
Ranger Dye Black Tie Ink Pad
Poppy Stamp Theo Butterfly Die
4mm flat back pearl string
Neenah Premium White Gold Metallic Card Stock
Neenah Premium Extra Heavy White Card Stock
My Petunia - Misti Stamp Tool
Scor-Tape 1/2" wide
Pink and Rose Red Card Stock


Completed card measures 7" x 8".  I have to always use the Misti stamp tool for all of my stamping.  Otherwise, I get too many problems that can't be fixed of areas where the ink isn't stamped.  If you don't know how to us the Misti, I have a U-Tube tutorial on my blog and the huge benefits using this tool (I can say enough about the positive benefits of using this stamp tool).

I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Cascading Fuchia with the Ranger Black Ink and cut it out using the oval die in the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval die set.  I colored the flowers using Copic markers.  I cut out the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval with the Neenah White Gold metallic card stock and adhered the oval on the decorative oval.

Cut out four of the smaller borders in the Heartfelt Creations Fleur Border die set using the white gold metallic card stock.  Cut 6 1/4" x 7"  of the patterned paper found in the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia paper collection.  Adhere the borders and oval on the patterned paper.  Cut out 6 3/4" x 7 1/4" of the white card stock and  7" x 8" of the purple card stock and adhere together and adhere the patterned paper on top.  Adhere the flat back pearls string to the decorative oval around the stamped image.

I embossed with the Ranger White Embossing powder the Heartfelt Creations Cascading Fuchsia large and medium size flowers. The top of each flower was cut using white card stock.  I used a samll flower bud with wire to assemble my flowers but you can use a silk flower wire and cut off about 2" and wrap aluminum foil or cotton ball around the wire and glue it together to assemble each flower.  Also, Heartfelt Creations has their own U-Tube on how they make the Cascading Fuchsia flower, by clicking HERE.  The reason that I haven't make the U-Tube yet, is that I am still trying different to create techniques of my own style.  I cut out the flowers with the Heartfelt Creations Fuchsia die set and used my fingers to spread the NUVO Mousse Peony Pink on the tips of each petal. I turn the petals over and use a flower ball molding tool, to mold each petal.  If your card stock is too heavy, use a light amount of spray to soften the paper.  Afterward, I use a embossing heat gun to dry the petals. I tried other ways of applying the NUVO on front of the flower petals but prefer using my fingers.  Afterwards, I poke a hole in the center of each group of petals and pull each one through the wire and adhere together.  I add glue in the center of the flower and add the stamen.  I used the NUVO Crystal Drop Rhubarb Crumble to the ends of each stamen and let dry.  I color two beads with the NUVO Crystal Drop Rhubarb Crumble and pull through the wire and glue the beads to the flower. I die cut one Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Vine and adhere to the top of the oval.  I cut part of the back of each flower and adhere to the top of the vine.  I made and adhere the bow using the 1/2" wide Scor-Tape.  I love this tape because  I can take the bow off of the tape to rearrange the bow and the tape remains sticky. .

 I cut out the Poppy Stamp Theo Butterfly die and applied using my fingers the NUVO Mousse Peony Pink and NUVO Mousse Mother of Pearl.  I adhere it with glue to the bow.

Journal NoteBook

Hi everyone!!

It´s Noe here, with a new and simple project that will be very useful to me in the day to day ... A Journal Book ... This first book was made without much decoration on the cover, simple, since it always accompanied me in the bag .. But I promise to make a more fashionable version that I will use as an agenda for the next course.

To make this book I used "Journal XL Die" from Sizzix Eileen Hull ... It´s very easy to use ... It has all the necessary pieces to create a nice journal to accompany you everywhere.

To make the interior booklets I have used 3 papers from the Day Dream Lemon Craft collection ... I love their colours !!

The little sentiment that I have stamped on the cover can be found on the set "Interlocking Squares" by ArtC Stamps ... Take advantage now, it's on sale !!

 Supply List from TRB shop:
Have a nice weekend!!

I'm here for you......

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today working with a bunch of products from the Rubber Buggy Store.  Be sure you stop by the store to see all the products available. 

I used the Heartfelt Creations Tropical Hibiscus stamp and coordinating die set.  I stamped the leaves on green cardstock and the flowers on Vintage Emporium papers from Prima Maketing using black ink.  After die cutting the flowers, I used the pad and 2 sizes of stylus from the Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit on the flowers. 

Next, I layered the petals together to form the flower.  Using Beacon Adhesives 3-in-1 Craft Glue, each petal was adhered together.

Die cut 2 shades of blue cardstock with oval dies.  Score the top layer every 1/4" and ink with Ranger Stormy Sky Distress Ink.   Place a sheet of  Vintage Emporium paper under the oval and stamp the phrase from the Guiding Light stamp set by WPlus9 slightly off center.

Adhere the flower and leaves in the opening.  Then add some Nuvo drops in the center.

The light blue layer was added to the bottom layer with foam adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives  for dimension.

Thank you for visiting.

It's A Beautiful World

Welcome back to my Saturday's posting for The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  Hi, Nancy Hill, and excited to share a three fold card with a packet of petunia seeds.

I have many friends in garden clubs who would love a special card with a packet of petunia seeds for this potting this year.  Enclosed in the center of this card is a packet of petunia seeds.

Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley Stamp set 
Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley Die set
Colored pencils or Copic markers for the butterfly
Artificial flower stamens
Burpee Packet of Petunia Seeds
NUVO Crystal Drops – Crystal Glaze


Card measures 6” x 6”.  Cut two 6” x 12” pink card stock for the main frame and score in the center of each frame.  Adhere two sections together to form three pages. 

Use the pink paper to cut two Heartfelt Creations Fleur Border Basic dies.  

First Page:  Cut the patterned paper 4” x 6”.  Use the 7” x 1.75” plain border die to cut the patterned papers for the front of the first page and pink main frame for this page.  Place the plain border die on the left side at 4 ½” and ends on the left at ¼”.  Use the other plain border die to cut the patterned paper for the back of this page.  Adhere the front page to the pink main frame.  Adhere one pink HC Fleur Border die as shown on the photo of the card.  Adhere the back of the patterned paper to the pink main frame of this first page. 

Second Page:  Repeat the same instructions for the first page except place the plain border on the right side at 4 ½” and ends on the left side at 3 ¼”.

Inside of Card:  Cut out two 6” x 6” pictures and 4 ½” x 4 ½” pictures found in the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia Paper. Adhere the 6” picture to the pink main frame.  Glue only the top and bottom of the 4 ½” picture.  You might want to place your packet of seeds on the back of the picture and then add glue to the top and bottom to make sure your packet will be able to slide out then the glue dries. 

Butterfly:  Stamp the butterfly with black embossing powder on the pink card stock.  Color it with colored pencils or Copic markers.  Adhere to card.  Using the instructions of making these petunias as shown below and adhere the white artificial flower stamens.   Add the leaves to the flowers and adhere to the card.  Add NUVO Crystal Drops to part of the leaves.
