Autumn Wreath

Welcome to my blog, Nancy Hill for The Rubber Buggy Design Team.  I made my 8" wreath with grape vines, Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower dies and stamps, Elizabeth Craft Crysanthemum die, an old maple leaf punch, Tattered Lace Floral Layer leaf die set, starfoam pumpkins and wheat from our field and pine cones from trees.  

After stamps and die cutting the Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflowers, use flower shaping kit to mold the petals on the back.  Sponge with NUVO Embellishment Mousse fall colors listed below and sponge Lawn Fawn Sunflower ink on the center of each petal.  Adhere US Art Quest Express Yourself Prills to the center of each sunflower. 
NUVO Embellishment Mousse-Indian Gold
NUVO Embellishment Mousse-Persian Red
NUVO Embellishment Mousse - Coral Calypso
Cut out the Tattered Lace Floral Layer leaves and sponge some of the NUVO mousse fall colors on the tips.  

Cut out each Elizabeth Craft Crysanthemum flower with different fall colored cardstock.  Using a flower shaping kit, curl the petals upward and adhere the layers.  

Stamp and embossed with NUVO Gold Enchantment embossing powder the  Heartfelt Creations Banner with the sentiment and heat the powder with the hot embossing gun.  Cut out a 8" floral wire and bend in the center.  Using a hot glue gun, glue 3" of the double wire on the back of the banner.  The remaining wire will be used to attach and glue to the wreath at the end of the floral arrangement.

Cut enough 3" wire strips for each flower, leaf and pumpkins.  Curled one end of each wire enough to be able to use a hot glue gun to attach it to each flower.  I was able to use a long nose plier and curl about two small circles of wire that was enough to do a good attachment.  Using a hot glue gun, glue the curl end of the wire to each flower, pine cone and star foam pumpkin.  

Cut 3" floral wire and glue about 1" of the wire to the back of each leaf. This will make the leaves able to bend a little plus add sturdiness.  

Make a floral bow and use a hot glue gun to glue the bow to the wreath.  Arrange your autumn arrangement by poking the wire attached to the flowers, etc.  When you get the arrangement you want, use the hot glue gun and glue each wire attached to a flower or leaf  to the wreath.  If any wire is sticking out of the wreath, just attach it to the wreath or cut it off.  I was able to curl the wire attached to the banner to give it a wave appearance.  Using the hot glue gun, glue around the wires inside the wreath to make it stay there permanently.    

I can't wait to see the possibilities that you will create making a wreath.  You can purchase these dies and supplies from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.
Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Miss Your Hugs

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today working with a bunch of products from the Rubber Buggy Store.  Have you checked out the store lately?  It has so many wonderful new products.

I die cut which cardstock with the Tutti Designs - Rose Branch Frame .  Using a Nuvo Glue Pen I adhered the die cut panel to Lavender cardstock.  Then I adhered the panel to purple cardstock.

I used the Wplus9 - Miss you lots stamp and coordinating Miss you lots die with white cardstock.  Then I colored the image with Copic Markers.

She was added to the die cut opening on the card front with foam adhesives and the sentiment was slipped behind her.

Thank you for visiting.

Card made using lots of Dies from The Rubber Buggy

Hi.. Bev here again. So I am on a roll... making cards.. Some for Christmas and lots just for everyday card needs. This Best Wishes card is made using Marbleous Paper Pad from Paper House but the dies and accents are from The Rubber Buggy. This one is an easel card with lots of great die cuts.

Supply List:
The Rubber Buggy Products
Other: cardstock, ribbon. foam
Paper: Paper House Marbleous paper pad

The Butterfly circle die is awesome... I did it in white and then matted it with print paper.

The matted die cut is perfect but needed some more colour yet .... so the fun but easy side border with gold trim border looks great.

For the base of the easel card I used some marbled print from Marbleous Paper pad and also die cut the bottom edge.

I also die cut a fun edge border on the corner.

I foam popped the front main piece.

The right side needed to be balanced out so I use a gold border.

The gold border was repeated on the base too.

Die cut Best Wishes is centred on the base.

Next  I added some flowers and assembled the front panel to the easel base card.

The side view shows how easy it is to just fold the panel and glue only 1/2 section of the front panel to it... it stands by itself then for viewing.


Thanks for stopping by..... see you again soon,

Tomorrow is a New Day

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today working with a bunch of products from the Rubber Buggy Store.  Have you checked out the store lately?  It has so many wonderful new products.

I used the MISTI to achieve the colors on my image.

Using A New Day stamp set, I first stamped the main portion of the image with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink.  I then inked the leaves with Ranger Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  Using the MISTI allows you to add color selectively.

Using a premade card, I cut Bazzill Candy Bar cardstock to the card.  Then added a wood grain panel.  Next, I die cut the image and matted it with Bazzill cardstock.

The phrase was stamped on white cardstock, inked and matted with brown cardstock before adding to the card with foam adhesives.

Thank you for visiting

Lego Birthday Card

 Nancy Hill for The Rubber Buggy Design Team.  My nephew's son loves his Legos and having a Lego birthday party.  I made this card using the Tattered Lace Pop Up Box and Tutti Design Balloon Bouquet Craft dies which were all purchased from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  

The Tattered Lace Pop Up Box die set has several sizes of square dies. 

 Using the 1 1/4" square in the set to do the lego blocks, cut out two squares of each color: blue, yellow, red, green, and orange .  I used a 1/2" circle punch or 1/2" circle in the set and punch or die cut eight circles for each lego block.  For the dots on the lego block, use 3D foam to stick one 
1/2" circle to another circle and glue four of these dots to each square.

To add these blocks inside the card, the Tattered Lace Pop Up Box die set has a 1/4" rectangle die.  Cut out 5 and then cut each strip in half.  You will use each strip to glue each block and glue it inside the pop up box.  Take the NUVO Crystal White Gloss and add it to the top of each dot on the squares.  Spray adhesive glue and sprinkle to the balloons.

I printed the Happy 7th Birthday on my computer and printed it out.  I took the scallop flower inside the Tattered Lace Pop Box die set, centered the die on the sentiment and die cut it.  I adhered it on the card.  I found the Lego Man on the computer and copied and printed it out.  The candle and number 7 is also in this set.  I cut it out and applied glitter to the candle.  

I can't wait to see the possibilities that you will create making a Pop Up Box made with the wonderful Tattered Lace Pop Up Box die set.  You can purchase these dies and supplies from The Rubber Buggy.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Super Friend Card made using lots of Dies Bev here today. So how are you today? I am wonderful. At The Rubber Buggy I am sharing a card made using lots of dies. I am using my Big Shot Express machine lots now that I have it.... so much easier to cut with electric machine. I have been making friends cards as you never have enough of them and it's so easy to get dies that are fun for this occasion.... I am mixing these up but still love the finished project.

Supply List: 
The Rubber Buggy Products
Paper:  Blue Fern Studios Wanderlust Collection
Other: Whisker Graphics tags, sticker and twine, cardstock, brads

For this one I am using Whisker Graphics tag and die cutting to fit it.

It looks great in just plain black die cut cardstock.

I added some pieces matted and fussy cut while other are single cut. I added a super small twine tied bow to the tag and matted it also.

I added lots of matting in the background and a few brads along with a sticker. It looks great.


Be sure to visit the STORE to view these and so many other amazing products.
Thanks for stopping by.... hope to see you soon.

Birthday Easel Card with Drawer

Welcome back and Nancy Hill for The Rubber Buggy Design Team.  I love making easel cards attached to a drawer.  If you haven't seen my step-by-step visual and written instructions on how to make an easel card with a drawer, click HERE.  If you have additional questions, don't hesitate to contact me. 

The gorgeous coordinating Heartfelt Creations Botanical Orchid  paper pad, dies and stamps as well as the Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily flower dies and stamps are sold at The Rubber Buggy on-line store.   

To get you started on making the flowers, watch the videos Heartfelt Creations Orchid and Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Flower U-Tube video.   I made my flowers using shimmer cardstock and sponged with my fingers the NUVO Embellishment Mousse colors:  Lilac LavenderPeony PinkPink Flambe before shaping each petal using a flower shaping tools and pad.  

The top sentiment is from the Heartfelt Creations Pampered Pooch Pawfect stamped set, "Life Is Better With You In It".  The inside sentiment is from the Heartfelt Creations Botanic Orchid Wishes.  I used colored pencils and Copic markers on the flowers, leaves and hummingbirds. I glued the oval on the Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval die.  The butterfly is from the Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley collection and colored with Copic markers.  

I used 1" Scor Pal-Scor Tape to adhere more of this together and advise using heavy weight cardstock for the drawer.  I used the Heartfelt Creations Fleur Border and Pocket die set cut out with white cardstock and adhered it around the drawer.  

I stamped a retired Heartfelt Creation sentiment inside the drawer and colored it with pencils.  When I gave this to her, I had chocolates and other fun gifts inside the drawer.  

I can't wait to see the possibilities that you will create making an easel card attached to a drawer using the Heartfelt Creations paper, dies and stamp sets. I really encourage you to purchase the entire coordinating Heartfelt Classic Sunflower collections from The Rubber Buggy.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!
