The Rubber Buggy 'Sitting Tilda Butterfly & Root Cellar Door scene'

Hi there Rubber Buggy fans! Today I have a shaped Magnolia card I made using some new mixed media techniques I've recently discovered! I used Sitting Tilda with Butterfly from the Once Upon a Tim '13 collection and Root Cellar Door from the Sweet Rainbow '11 collection and masked the image to create this scene.

The shaped blank is made with Go Kreate Frilly Frame #5 and the image is Spellbinders Nestabilities labels 1 die, also used Tim Holtz on the edge Butterflight die. Papers are the Soferio collection by Maja Design. 

Distress Inks:
Skin - Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo
Cheeks - Tattered Rose mixed with Aged Mahogony
Hair - Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Dress - Victorian Velvet with Pumice Stone shading
Tights - Pumice Stone
Flowers - Shaded Lilac
Butterfly - Victorian Velvet, Pumice Stone, Shaded Lilac
Greenery - Bundled Sage
Wall - Pumice Stone
Bricks & Stone - Soot Black
Highlighted with Sakura Pen-Touch, white
The mixed media techniques I used are The Crafters Workshop Reversed Chicken Wire template and applied texture paste to achieve the chicken wire effect. I also used Shabby Pink Frantage embossing powder, set around the image with a heat gun, then applied Mod-poge and added Frantage colour Fragments. The Butterflight die has been coated with Snow Tex textured paint, and the stunning chipboard butterflies by Dusty Attic and 'hold my hand' Maja strip has been shaped and coated in Gesso. The large flower below is Prima.

The Rubber Buggy 'LOTV sentiment tag card - mixed media inspired project'

Hi all I'm posting for The Rubber Buggy Inspiration blog & today I have a LOTV tag card to share.
To make the tag shaped card blank first create a 4x6" tent fold card blank, then trim one of the corners off. Turn the corner over and use as a template to trim the other side in order to get even corners.
Lovely papers are by Pion Design coated in Gesso, edges have been inked with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Ink using a blending tool & then sewn around on the machine. The chicken wire effect is made using The Crafters Workshop reversed Chicken Wire template & texture paste. I then added shabby white Frantage embossing powder & Frantage flakes in green and pink.
The LOTV sentiment is from the Quotable Love set, stamped in Sepia with Black added towards the outsides. Viva Declor Cream pearl pen faux pearl swirls added around sentiment to highlight. The skeliton clock chipboard has been embossed in That Special Touch of Gold, then set with UTEE sprinkled with white embossing powder.
I added flowers & lace trim around the bottom & tied with lace and pearl bead string through the hole.

The Rubber Buggy 'Tilda on the Beach' by Deb.x

Hi all & today I'm catching up on my Saturday post for The Rubber Buggy Inspiration Blog. It's been such a hectic few days - first of all my laptop screen stopped working on Thursday and kept flickering then going completely black or white. So I thought I was in the market for a new laptop However when I took it in to the shop to the guy who I always deal with for IT related stuff, he told me I could plug it into a moniter & use like a desktop. So I've just got back & plugged in & wouldn't you know it - when the laptops plugged into the moniter the sceen on the actual laptop works fine, would you believe it?!! So I've gone from a dogey screen, to 1 broken screen, to 2 fully working screens at the same time! Ha. Computers will be the death of me I swear!
Anyways here is my summer Magnolia card I made using this ever so cute 'Tilda on the beach' stamp fromt the new Sea Breeze collection. I teamed her with my new LOTV sentiment stamp which complimented the image perfectly.
The papers I used are 12x12 Blue Vintage Hydrangea (front & back) from the new Sea Breeze collection and New England Wood from Bon Voyage collection - LOVE this for nautical makes! All edges have been inked with Antique Linen & Walnut Stain Distress Ink pads using a blending tool then distressed with edge of scissors.
The shaped card blank has been made with Go Kreate Frilly Frame #5 die. The feur de Lies Spellbinders die & Tim Holtz on the edge Scrollwork die have both been cut from kraft cardstock then coated in Picket Fence Distress Stain & Snow Tex.
I stamped the Tilda image onto watercolour paper, then again on to a scrap piece of thin card, cut the Tilda out and placed her over the origional image as a 'mask', then stamped the LOTV greeting in Whethered Wood Distress Ink. I coloured the image & around the sentiment with Distress Inks using a normal watercolour brush.
 Distress Inks:
Skin - Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo
Cheeks - Tattered Rise mixed with Aged Mahogony
Hair - Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
 Swin Suit - Whethered Wood shaded with Pumice Stone
Trim - Pumice Stone
Highlighted with White Sakura Pen-Touch
And here's a quick look at the inside where I've also stamped the LOTV sentiment, this time onto the wood paper, circles are Spellbinders dies and the kraft die cuts have been cut with Feur de Lies Accents die.

The Rubber Buggy 'Bikini Tilda'

Hi there & I'm posting for my Saturday spot at The Rubber Buggy Inspiration Blog. I thought I'd ink up my  brand new Bikini Tilda from the new Sea Breeze collection. I used this great sketch from Simply Magnolia & papers from the same Magnolia collection.
The papers I used are Vintage Summer Roses, Grandpas Rose Garden, from the Sea Breeze collection & New England Wood from Bon Voyage collection. I distressed the edges with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain using a blending tool then scored with the edge of the scissors.
The card blank & Vintage tag eyelet is kraft cardstock & papers are matted onto white Bazzil cardstock. Tim Holtz on the edge scrollwork die has been cut from kraft & distressed with Snow Tex. The bunting (which I have to say is my absolute favourite thing at the mo!) I hand cut & curled around the twine. I then wrapped the twine around my finger & secured the loops with staples.
The image has been coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks on watercolour paper with a (dry) watercolour brush. Stamps around the image are HOTP & LOTV. The topper is mounted on a Spellbinders die that I cut from kraft card, distressed with Picket Fence Distress Stain & threaded with thick twine. I edged the Tilda topper with pearl bead string. The 2 clay corners are handmade with Martha Stewart clay moulds & white air-dry clay.
Distress Inks:
Skin - Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo
Cheeks - Tattered Rose mixed with Aged Mahogony
Hair - Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Bikini & Flowers red - Aged Mahogony
Highlighted with Sakura Pen-Touch - White
The swirl above is a Doo Huckey die & the die cut flowers are a Marriane design rolled roses die. Other flowers are mainly Kort & Godt.
I LOVE making bunting & whilst everyone seems to be out of stock of the lovely Mganolia Doo Hickey bunting dies at the moment - I thought I'd hand cut my own! I left a tab that I curled around the thick twine, then cut little knotches & distressed for a shabby chic look, I then spelled out 'fun' in mini-alphas.
Above shows the removable Doo Hickey Vintage tag with Tim Holtz stamped sentiment & Blue Moon silver heart charm. Below shows peek of inside! Sentiment is from HOTP CD-rom.

Bikini Tilda shaped & masked Magnolia card

 Hi there & today I'm sharing this shaped Magnolia card I made using 'Bikini Tilda' from the new Sea Breeze collection.
Check out this lovely inspiration photo from MDUC, which I tried to incorporate elements of and loosely based the colour pallete around.
I made a scene using masking technqiues with Tilda and 2 background stamps, then made the shaped  card blank with Go Kreate Frilly Frame #5 die.
Papers are from the same Magnolia Sea Breeze collection. Edges have been inked and distressed slightly with scissor edges. Below shows double loop edge punch by Martha Stewart. The die cut swirls are Tim Holtz on the edge scrollwork. I cut them from kraft & added Picket Fence Distress Stain & when dry shabby white Frantage embossing powder.
The image has been created using Bikini Tilda (Sea Breeze), Vintage Sweedish Bench (Once Upon a Time) and Happy Easter background (Little Easter) stamps. I stamped Tilda, masked over her and stamped the bench, masked the bench (still keeping Tilda masked) and stamped the background. When stamping the background I added the ink, then I masked the bottom half of the image by adding a sticky note directly to the stamp, positioned approx where the bench would be downwards so that none of the Little Easter image showed below the bench.
Distress Inks:
Skin - Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo
Cheeks - Aged Mahogony mixed with Tattered Rose
Hair - Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
red on Bikini & Flowers - Aged Mahogony
Bench - Pumice Stone, Milled Lavendar
Cloud - Whethered Wood, Pumice Stone
Sun - Squeezed Lemonade
Stems - Bundled Sage, Shabby Shutters
Highlighted with Sakura Pen-Touch, White
Flowers are Kort & Godt, Prima & LLC. I hand cut the sign, stamped the letters in Studio G alphabet stamps and curled around the wood.
Above shows Magnolia Doo Hickey So Wrapped So Lovely tag with lace tied around and Blue Moon key charm tied with twine. Tim Holtz hardware findings hindge cut from grungeboard & coated in Snow Tex, then Picket Fence Distress Glitter - set with pearl brad.
Above shows Doo Hickey Lovely Fence die cut from kraftcardstock & covered in Picket Fence Crackle Paint. Shaped and highlighted with Picket Fence Distress Glitter. Below shows the inside with HOTP printed sentiment quote.
