New Traditions – Christmas Joy Card

There’s only just under ten more weeks before Christmas and I have been slowly making some Christmas cards.  I’m excited to share with you my first card for this year’s holiday season, and it was a delight to create with the new Luxury Cardstock range and Christmas collections from Crafters Choice.

Crafters Choice materials: New Traditions A4 Luxury Cardstock Pack, New Traditions Die-Cut Pack, New Traditions Cards & Envelopes

I have used the red card from the New Traditions Card Pack for the base and punched one side of the front of the card.  I then trimmed a Mirror and Matt Card from the gorgeous Luxury Cardstock Pack and punched one side.  These are then layered under the same punched side of the card.

I trimmed a couple more Matt and Mirror card pieces and layered this on top of the card.  I then added some stenciling and mediums on top, and then adhered the joy title from the New Traditions Die-Cut Pack.  I finished the sentiment off by adding a small flower cluster to it.

For a beautiful finish, I trimmed another Mirror card to size and adhered this inside the card.  Last but not the least, I trimmed a small piece of white cardstock and adhered this inside the card which will give me some space to write a message.

Thanks for popping and I hope I got you excited and looking forward to the Christmas season and get creating.  Check out the Ruby Rock-It Brands range HERE or at a Spotlight and a scrapbooking shop near you.

Cheers,

Box of Fun – Bella Nursery

I’ve been getting my fingers inky with my new baby layout featuring Bella’s new adorable Nursery collection with Ranger’s Distress Inkpads.  I always enjoy scrapping baby photos as it always takes me back to my childrens’ memories.

Bella materials: Nursery Collection, Bolt Florals, Bolt Chipboard Buttons, Gold Corrugated Cardstock, Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Evergreen Bough, Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs, Weathered Wood

Other: Ranger Foam Applicator, White Cardstock, Mists, Stencils, Mediums

First I layered and stencilled my sunshine yellow mists on a white cardstock and let it set.  I then added some mediums and combined the different shades of Distress Ink on the page for depth and color.

I then framed my daughter’s photo with Bella’s Gold Corrugated Cardstock.  I love the shine and dimension of this versatile specialty cardstock.  The picture is then surrounded with some pretty golden florals from the Bolt collection.

Next I punched and fussy cut some sentiment and cute images from Bella’s Nursery paper collection, inking the edges with the Distress Ink.  I then adhered these around the page along with a gold foiled Bolt Chipboard Button.  It’s finished off with some more inking and stamping the title on the bottom of the page using the Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers.

I had so much fun getting creative with my daughter’s baby photo.  It’s so funny how she’s got all the toys in the world and the most fun she’s had is playing in, on, and around empty boxes.  Funny that, eh?

Think Pink Tags

My daughter’s birthday is coming up soon and we have been busy shopping for her loot bag goodies to give away.  We’ve decided to make our own tags to go with each loot bag with the help of Fundamentals’ tags, stamps, and Ranger’s Distress Inkpads.

Fundamentals materials: White Tag Pack, Sentiments Stamp Set

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry

I punched some hearts from a scrap piece of white cardstock and generously applied the Spun Sugar inkpad all over the hearts.  I then inked the Picked Raspberry to the edges of the hearts and tags with Ranger’s sponge applicator.

I stencilled the Worn Lipstick shade to the tag and then adhered a pretty pink inked heart on each tag.  Lastly, I stamped the Fundamentals thank you sentiment on each heart and tied a white satin ribbon through the top hole of each tag.  Pretty pink tags done, fun and so easy to do.

This is definitely the special touch each loot bag needed.  Hope you’ve been inspired and you can check out all the Fundamentals range HERE, or at a Spotlight store near you.

Cheers,

 

Dad’s Day Distress Card

There’s only three weeks to go until we celebrate the special fathers in our lives.  My family love this time of the year as we honor dad, and what better way to express this by creating a Father’s Day card.

Materials: Franchville Neutrals Cardstock, Family Man Collection

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Mowed Lawn, Gathered Twigs, Aged Mahogany, Hickory Smoke, Old Paper, Walnut Stain, Chipped Sapphire

Other: Ranger Sponge Applicators

I started with the white cardstock from the Franchville Neutrals Cardstock set and then blended different shades of Ranger’s Distress Inkpad sets with the sponge applicator to achieve a layered grungy depth to my masculine card.

I then fussy cut some image and letters from Bella’s awesome Family Man paper collection and added this on the card, perfect for dad’s day.  I finished it all off with some stamping and more distress ink application around the card…so much fun!

Don’t forget to create something special for dad’s day.  I hope you enjoyed today’s post and you can check out more of Ruby Rock-It Brands HERE.  These are also available to purchase along with the Ranger Distress Inkpad range at a Spotlight store near you.

A French Country Card For Nan

It’s time for a card share today with Bella’s beautiful new French Country paper collection.  Mother’s day is not too far away and I cannot miss out on creating a special card for a special woman.

Bella Materials: French Country Collection, Mini Florals

Fundamentals Materials: Kraft Cardstock, White Mini Peg, Sentiment Pack

The Fundamentals Kraft Cardstock is the perfect sturdy base for this earty French Country card.  I layered the woodgrain and hay print papers on top of the card, and then built the cluster on top left which include the pretty Bella Mini Florals and punched shapes from the paper collection.  How cute is the little chick?

The card is finished with a Fundamentals Sentiment and White Peg, and some touches of inks and mists on top.

Magic & Wonder

It’s time for a scrapbook page share today with one of Bella’s new Mini Theme paper collection that is Magic & Wonder.  It is a girly paper collection which has fun unicorns with pretty pink papers and more.

Bella materials: Magic & Wonder Papers (Cut-Outs, Stripes, Gem), White Bella Florals

I chose to showcase the photo in sepia which looks great against the pink papers and inky background, with Ranger’s Distress Inkpad range.

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Picked Raspberry, Gathered Twigs, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Foam Applicators

I’ve punched and fussy cut some pieces and fun images from the Gem and Cut-Outs papers.  The hardest part was choosing which side of each paper to use.

I’ve shaded and stencilled the background, blending the different shades of Distress Inkpads with the help of the Ranger Foam Applicator.  A cluster of pretty Bella Florals adorn the page to finish it all off.

I cannot wait to add this page to my scrapbook collection.  Thanks for popping in and I hope you enjoyed my post today as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Homemade Bake Book

Are you ready for another awesome new Bella paper collection? Today I’m showing off Grandma’s Kitchen collection, fun and vintage altogether in true Ruby Rock-It Brands style.

Bella materials: Grandma’s Kitchen Papers (Cut-outs, Floral, Recipes), Black Fundamentals Mini Peg

Other: Walnut Stain Ranger Distress Inkpad, Ranger Foam Applicator

I’ve used the Floral paper for the base of my mini baking recipe book.

I’ve used some Sizzix dies to cut the base and layers, and then inked the edges with Ranger’s Walnut Stain Distress Inkpad and Foam Applicator.

I trimmed all the recipes from the Recipes paper that came with this collection.  Isn’t that cool?

I mix and matched all the plaid, floral, and polka dot prints of the papers so that it shows through all the layers, nooks and crannies of this mini recipe book.

I’ve fussy cut some tags, words, and images from the Cut-Outs paper and layered these throughout.  Add a cute Fudamentals Mini Peg inside and some string to secure the book and voila!

Thanks for popping in and I hope you enjoyed today’s baking recipe book.  Check out all the awesome Bella paper collections HERE, and they are also available to purchase at a Spotlight store near you.
