The Rubber Buggy with a fun card and tag

'Owl' always love you

Products Used
Sugar Hollow Paper Collection HCDP1-262
Flowering Dogwood HCD1 - 7129
Sugar Hollow Hangout HCD1 -784
Botanic Orchid Wishes HCPC -3744
Markers: Copic,
Glue: Beacon 3-in-1
Ink: Tim Holtz
Tools: Misti
Other: cardstock, beads puffy stickers,foam pop ups,

Instructions: Using a cardstock card base cut your background paper panel to fit. Cut a 2nd image section as we will be using foam to pop it up and add depth and dimension. Cut the sentiment from the paper collection and mat it to pop up also. Add foam pop ups and add the bead trim around the circle image. Now we will die cut foamiran to start the flower and leaf accents. 
When all the pieces are cut lightly heat them .... shrink a bit, shape and glue together. Add to the card. Add the few additional sticker accents and the front is done.  Now for the inside I chose a great print image from the 6x6 options and cut it to fit the inside of my card. I used the Botanic Orchid Wishes verse for inside. I stamped it and then copic coloured it. The print image had a cage in the upper right side so I die cut a white one for more depth and texture using the Sugar Hollow Hangout. Ink the edges and glue to the inside. I mixed some products together but they look great together.






I did this project for another post but was using The Rubber Buggy tutti 213 dies so thought I'd add it in here as an extra to give you an idea about using the amazing nested stitched tags of many sizes . 
Die cut many tags in different colours for layers. Stamp the background. Using digi printed stamps from Vectoria Designs and matted them to pop.
I added some circle chipboards plain and then played with some buttons and thread for cute fun accents. Tie off the tags with mix of thin ribbons and they are done.

HI it's Bev here today...I am sharing some super fun and cute Easter cards all using fabulous Dies R Us products.... paper, dies and even glue.

For the first card I am doing the background layers of fun prints, colours and cardstock. I die cut the fun border accent and sentiment. 

In the photos I share better shots for you viewing of the details with layers and accents.

Here is the close up of the cute thin cut ribbon with a bow tied.

This section has a perfect die cut accent trim.


Up next is... OMG a super too cute Easter scene with eggs, rabbit and critters..... all the kids will love this and a card image for Easter.

Lots of fun layers, prints and colours on this card too.. This one has a border and many matted layers.

Lots of coordinating colours in layers that make the matted image pop off the card.

The sentiment is more subtle on this card but it's perfect too.


The last card is the same die cut Easter scene but in softer colours in yellow to go with the fun turquoise and yellow centered white flowers. What a cute combo. 

Super combo of prints and plains with cute accents.

Ribbon, flower and paper accent finish this card ... so cute.

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.
