Art Impressions from The Rubber Buggy

At The Rubber Buggy I am creating using the Tim Holtz Stamping Platform. I actually have the Misti also but the platform space is larger and will adapt to layout size papers too and open inside stamping for cards. mini Misti however will do the thinner stamps better however... so keeping both of them for different duties.
For the this card I am using the Art Impressions Maturing Set + dies #4831. OMG it was so full of fun.... great images for outside and inside the card along with the perfect sentiment. Above is the front of card which I added some die cut apart pieces to decorate it.... and below you can see the inside of card. All my projects use Beacon 3-in-1 glue and Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink.Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

I stamp my images..... and love that if it needs a 2nd or 3rd pass at stamping and alignment is perfect.

My images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink for colouring using Copic Markers. I always accent with a white gel pen.

 The dies come with this set so you can die cut them so easily.


Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to visit the STORE to view these and so many other products.... even lines not carried by the other stores.

Cousins Layout full of memories

Here is my eldest and the youngestvGrand Daughter together celebrating a birthday .... so nice to see them together enjoying each others company. To start this page I used the Sketches in Thyme challenge sketch for Aug 1st (see below) and the amazing Blue Fern Studios Amber and Apricot Paper Collection, 49 and Market Vintage Shades Potpourri Snow flowers and Venice lace are from The Rubber Buggy. The chipboard accnets are from Creative Embellishments. When it was done I added the ink roller stitches.

In the close ups you can see more details in the paper and accents. The upper corner has a cut in slit to follow line in sketch. The paper layers with chipboard accent are perfect.

This section hosts clustered flowers, lace and lots of chipboards.

More fun pieces of chipboards.

Here is the central section with the matted photo and the great chipboard title.

Treasure using Creative Inspiration Sketch and amazing products

For this super page showcasing my mom with the youngest Grand Kids I used 49 and Markets - Sweet Reflections Collection from The Rubber Buggy. The accents are the matching Laser Cut Sheet.  Flowers are Prima and chipboards  from Creative Embellishments.
For this page I used my sketch from Creative Inspirations Sunday Sketch Challenge. My favourite glue used is Beacon 3-in-1 and inking is done using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo. I finished it off with a small cute tied ribbon bow. Some of the accents are popped up using Scrapbook Adhesive 3D foam tape.

In the close ups you can view the details better. In this section I used naked natural coloured chipboards. I added fun layers and a great metal butterfly.
In this section you can see the layers along with the fussy cut sections where I slipped thing behind. I also inked edges to give depth and demension.

This section has a fun title and more smaller chipboard accents.

More overlaping layers with flowers and some of them popped up.

Central section with photo front and centre.
