Last Christmas card of 2014

Hi everyone!

Pi here again.
So we made it through December and 2014 :)
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas time.


Christmas Tilda with cat is the first stamp I recieved as a DT-member for The Rubber Buggy and I'm still loving it. I colored it monochromatic with the cool gray series from Copic and then continued the frosty look with the icey blue from Magnolia. One of my favorite colors for Christmas actually. I backed it with Graphic 45 paper and really love the tone it set for the card. This is my fav of the year I believe.

I'm really looking forward what 2015 brings. Did you notice Kellie has updated the webshop? Besides bringing the latest of Lawn Fawn, she's also bringing a new brand Wplus9 design studio - super cute and versitile stamps. There are also new poppy stamps dies - a division of Memory box, equally detailed and great quality. But the greatest change may be that she has introduced a reward system where you can earn chips which you can trade for discounts. How great is that? Create an account and become a member now :)


Products used on the card:
Magnolia Rubber stamp Tilda Christmas with cat
Copic markers (CG-series)
12x12 Magnolia paper Snowy wood
6x6 Graphic 45 paper pad solids and patterns, Twelve days of Christmas
WOC pionsettias
Stamping supplies (bonefolder, memento ink, doublesided tape)

Thank you for visiting and happy new year!!!
See you all in 2015 :)

Belated Merry Christmas

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a belated Christmas card.  We all have them - those we forgot to send (or post) or those we need for someone quickly.

Memory Box dies are amazing and intricate.  I've used the Traditional Ornament for the ornament base and the Lydia Ornament on top.


The card was created from Bazzill cardstock cut 5 1/2" x 11", then scored to create a 5 1/2" square card.  A layer of Bo Bunny pattern  paper was added and a layer of Bazzill cardstock placed on top.


May Arts ribbon was tie to each ornament before adding them to the card and a simple sentiment was added to the corner.

It was the night before Christmas...

Hi everyone!

Pi here with another Christmas card just before the great holiday.


I've made a window card and mixed different stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn that's in the store. My new favorites :)

I've stamped the sentiment on acetate with white staz on, but it didn't come out as opaque as I wished. (I think I didn't do a very good job reinking the inkpad...) But I think it really looks like steam on a window, doesn't it?

The trees are made really quick and easy - I just stamped them in pine needles distress ink and die cut them as they were. The other images are copic colored. Just like my other card from last week HERE, I changed the stamen to a flatback bling instead. It's also colored with a shimmer spray. I used LSG silent night silver, but you can find a ton of colours in the store from Prima Color Bloom. The star night background is Maja Design paper just as it is. Love!


The inside of the card is also made with design paper from Maja Design. The greeting is heat embossed with Ranger white superfine embossing powder, which reads "Merry Christmas and Happy new years".


Products used from the store:
Lawn Fawn Snow days (the trees)
Lawn Fawn Milk & Cookies (the plate of cookies)
Lawn Fawn Love you a latte (the mug & sentiment)
Copic markers
Distress ink pine needles
6x6 Maja Design paper pad Vintage vinter
WOC pionsettias 
Stamping supplies (memento ink, doublesided tape, bonefolder)

Thank you for visiting and a merry Christmas to all :D

Time to Party

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a sweet, non Christmas card. 





Graphic 45's Time to Celebrate papers can be used for graduations, mother's day, parties, anniversaries, or any other time you want to celebrate.  The colors are beautiful and you can mix and match the papers easily. 




Adding layers and tying some May Arts ribbon around the card highlights how amazing this collection is.

Older Maja Design Christmas paper

Hi everyone!

Pi here.
We're halfway through December and Christmas is just around the corner :)
I hope you all have had time to enjoy it, as I know this is the most stressful time of the year for some.

I just love the beautiful cards by Steph lately with the new Maja Design paper, don't you?
I'm here with 3 quick little cards from an older Maja Design collection


They are just about odd 4x4 in sizes and I got to use some of the growing pile of scraps from my 6x6 paper pad by Maja Design. The paper pad also has a couple of sheets of cut aparts with tags and sentiments that I've used. I've added eyelets on the tags for a more authentic look (and to use my stash and crop-o-dile). If you've followed me through December, you know that I have a habit of changing the stampen on my pionsettias and this is no exception.


Products used from the store:
6x6 paper pad Maja Design, Vintage winter
Stamping supplies (doublesided tape, bonefolder)
Ranger embossing powder, silver superfine
Bakers twine, red
WOC pionsettias


Thank you for visiting!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today, and with Christmas coming, it's time to get those cards ready.

I've used some lovely papers from Maja Designs - A Gift For You collection.  I can't get enough of this paper line.  It is so pretty.  I cut apart the Die Cut sheet to get the tags and other elements to use on the card


Ranger Distress Ink in Antique Linen was used around the card giving an aged appearance.

Lawn Fawn Christmas card

Hi everyone!

Pi here.
I hope you all have gotten the fantastic news that The Rubber Buggy is now carrying Lawn Fawn products - yippi!

Here is a white on white Christmas card using both snow days & deck the halls stamp set.


I'm so happy I managed to get this card done in one evening. But let me tell you I was a bit stressed for time, since my sleeping baby could be unsleeping at anytime :)

But it's so easy with these set, so I was just stamping and embossing franticly and was having the best time really. The bunnies are colored with copic markers (C0 & C1, R00 & R10) and I added some wink of stella clear glitter and some stickles to make them sparkle. I've seen lots of people heatemboss on wellum and I had some in my stash. I'm super happy with the result and that's why I went OTT. The base of my card is Bazzill marshmallow cardstock, great and sturdy - I will get some more of these! I've grounded the images on a scalloped circle on top of some ribbon. To make the lace show abit more on top of all the white I've layered it on grossgrain ribbon for some texture. I hope you can see all the details.


Products used from the store:
Lawn Fawn Snow days stamp & die set
Lawn Fawn Deck the Halls stamp set
Copic markers
Grossgrain/satin edge ribbon, white
Lace with satin center, white
Icestickles diamond
Ranger embossingpowder white superfine
Bazzill cardstock Marshmallow
Stamping supplies (Bonefolder, doublesided tape, embossing ink, memento ink)

Thank you for visiting!

Gift Card Purses

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today. 

I find myself giving more gift cards than gifts these last few years and while I find them impersonal, I like to personalize them with a handmade gift card holder.  Today, I've created purses with papers from 7 Dots Studio.  


Double sided papers work best because they are more substantial and look lovely, both inside and out.  Using a mix of papers you can give everyone on your list a different purse.


Velcro holds the purses closed so the contents remain intact.


While great for holiday gift cards, think of the variety you can create for all your gift giving needs.

Time to deck the halls

Hi everyone!

Pi here and it's finally that time of the year :)
December!!
I love, love, love Christmas if you haven't guessed.

So just a heads up, from now on all my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy will be Christmas cards.

This one is inspired by sketch #336 from Sketch Saturday. I really liked the shape you get when only rounding everyother corner and that really inspired me.


The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Deck The Halls. I changed the stamen of the pionsettia and used some flatback pearls instead. I sprayed it with my LSG Rudolf nose red, but there are plenty of beautiful shimmer sprays in the store as well from Prima Color Bloom. The stamped image is colored with copic markers in cool grays (CG-series), but as I put it on the card with the vibrant G45-green and the Bazzil Peppermint it got kind of lost. So I colored the berries red and added some green to the leaves.


The inside of the card is heat embossed with superfine white embossing powder from Ranger. The stamp is a greeting in Swedish, which I love and have had for several years now.


Products used from the store:
Wee stamps winter fairy
Copic markers
Lawn Fawn Deck the Halls
12x12 Bazzil peppermint cardstock
6x6 paper pad solids and patterns Graphic 45, 12 days by Christmas
WOC poinsettias
Red twine
Ranger superfine embossing powder
Stamping supplies (doublesided tape, bonefolder, memento ink
