The Rubber Buggy and Easter will be here soon enough

Hi .. so at The Rubber Buggy I am sharing some fun easy Easter Card It won't be long before Easter is here. Time just seems to fly when your having fun. The 2 cards are sharing some amazing dies that make crafting so easy and fun.

Supply List:
The Rubber Buggy Products
Markers: copics
Other: paper, card bases, ribbon, brads

This card I started by pulling some paper layers with a mix of great colours and prints. I then die cut in white cardstock to make the designs and sentiment pop.

I also used cardstock mats for colour, depth and dimension.  Using ribbon I wrapped it around the upper piece a few time and tied it off. I then tied a matching bow and glued it on top of the other wrapped piece. 

The close up gives you a great view of the details in this Easter Egg die.

More close ups for your viewing.

Not all cards have to be fussy and hard. The simple fun ones look amazing too.


Here is a 2nd easy card... simple and fun to put together but so cute.

Creative Embellishments and elegant accents

Creative Embellishments has so many fabulous chipboard accents... for this one I went to Long Stem Roses and a super Vintage Lantern accent. They are perfect for this wedding page. The chipboards are copic coloured then the flowers are sparkled using stickles and the gold on the cage is liquid pearls.

I like to layout out my proposed design and then pull it apart to glue from the bottom up.

In the close ups I am sharing photos that gives you a better view and more details.

What a great clustered section of chipboard and 3D flowers and accents.

Bottom right has some lace to base the photo wrapped with flowers.

More close ups.... such fabulous papers to compliment the elegant chipboards.

The lantern has a super small tied bow to accent it along with liquid pearls borders.

Thanks for stopping by.... be sure to visit the STORE where you can view these and so many other amazing products.

Feeling Sketchy challenge for Feb 15th using the sketch below and the amazing sponsored image from Digi Stamps 4 Joy.

To create this card I printed and copic coloured the amazing image.... cut accent colour strips.... and die cut the fussy centre piece to fit the card base.

I glued down the strips and die cut frame.

I popped up the image for depth and dimension.

I added the die cut sentiment.

Here is the main section up close for viewing.

And I wrapped and died bows using thread through the button holes and glued them down. Simple but easy card that looks amazing using the image and sketch.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you'll join us in the challenge to share your projects too.
