Sweet wishes for Valentine (TRB)

Hi everyone!

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

I'm so happy they are carrying Lawn Fawn. Here is a card using the milk and cockies stamp and die set.

I've made my own background papers, that I've layered and then die cut (not fuzzy cut - which is one of the reasons for my undying love) my copic colored images.

 I've stamped a tone-on-tone background for my Valentine message and kept the theme with cockies and hearts for the inside of the card as well.

Lawn Fawn stamp set, Milk and cockies
Lawn Fawn die set, Milk and cockies

Elmo song LO

Hi everyone!

I'm here with another easy layout using the collection kit Baby to Bride by Graphic 45. I've done several layouts now and I still have plenty to play with from the kit, both papers, stickers and chipboard.

The thickers for the title is from my stash and the journaling is about how my newborn recognised his father's voice due to months of singing Elmo's song. A really love the subtle teal tones of this collection and I have to admit I'm on the verge of hoarding it. But one great effect of becoming stressed for craft time is that I don't have time to dwell over how to make the most of paper (I use to cut out large pieces that will be covered) - LOL!

I've created small clusters with scrap paper cut to banners, prima resin birds and stamping splatters and stars to guide the eye through the page. I don't know if it was the right decision, but I wanted something on the left side. It looked to much unattended, so I added two rows of twine for texture. But like I said, I'm still not sure if I like it or not...

Products used on the layout:
12x12 Baby 2 Bride, Graphic 45 deluxe collection
(Paper, stickers and chipboard)
Prima resin
Starry night stencil
Stamping supplies (doublesided tape, scissors)

Embossed Thank you card

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a simple thank you card for The Rubber Buggy.

This card was put together super fast and I'm really liking the paper I made by stamping the greeting over and over again - don't know why I haven't thought of that before?

I have also dry embossed a piece of paper for background. I have used Tim Holtz alterations folder (damask), but there is a beautiful embossing folder in TRB store and it measures 6x6, just perfect to fit your larger cards as well.

I have again hidden the edge between the two papers with twine. As I did this card in the evening and the light was very poor I now see in broad daylight that I should have picked another color - but that's ok. Kellie has a lot of wonderful twine in the store and I do recommend the seafoam, which is one of my favorites.

Like I said, this card came togheter super fast so after I'd mounted the backgrounds and the twine on to my card base, I die cut two leaves from the foliage set (I used wink of stella glitter, but there is shimmer sprays and perfect pearls in the store you also can use) and die cut the embossed the greeting to pop up on the card.

Products used on the card:
WRS Circle greetings
Spellbinder's shapeabilities foliage
Damask embossing folder
Circle die
Bazzil cardstock marshmallow
Embossing ink
Embossing powder
Stamping supplies (bonefolder, doublesided tape)

I hope you try it out and visit the store
