Focus on Metallic Rub-Ons with BoBunny

No comments:
Saturday greetings to you! I was recently up on the BoBunny Blog with a project to feature one of our newest products, Metallic Rub-Ons, Dies and the Garden Journal collection.

I was so excited to be assigned the new Silver Filagree Metallic Rubons as a featured item for my project today! I absolutely love rubons and the way they add so much to your page without adding a ton of bulk.  The shimmer of these is simply fantastic!

I used the Love sentiment onto my photo, the Flourishes are to the left of my layers and the Doily on right right corner are from the Filagree Silver Foil pack. 

My layers start with some stamping first using Distressed Textures on my background paper with Licorice Ink. Next is a scalloped rectangle Noteworthy element followed by the Film Tape from Rose Cafe. Next, is a piece of corrugated cardboard that I peeled, then added some Pearlescents in Silver, Blush and Brilliant Blue. While that was drying, I used my Love Stickable Stencils along with Glitter Paste in Sugar. I cut a border from the Elegant Border Die and trimmed to 3 sections long, then layered it under the cardboard and stitched into place.

Using my coordinating 6x6 Garden Journal Paper Pad, I cut the papers using the 4x4 Portrait Frame Dies and adhered the layers to one another. Cut it in half, then adhered to my matted photo from behind. Attached some cheese cloth to my photo layer from behind, then attached foam squares to provide a bit of dimension.

With the remaining section from the border die cut, I folded it in half and glued it together.  I used it as the heart accent in the upper left on the Noteworthy tag banner and added a pearl Jewel to it. A few Blossoms, Jewel Flourishes and a Brad finish the page. 

I hope you get a chance to pick up some of the new Foil Rubons, you will really love the versatility and elegance that they add to your projects.

Layered Doily Dies with Cheery Lynn Designs

1 comment:
Happy Thursday crafty friends!  It's my day to host the blog over on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog today. My project is a square card.

"Hello" (5x5 card)

I love the pretty layers of our doily dies and how they add such a delicate touch to your project. Here I'm showcasing a few of our newer dies, the Royal Scandinavian Doily and the Florence Filigree Doily. The steps that I used to create this card are:
  • To start I used a 5x5 card base in white card stock. 
  • Next I added the square scalloped layer.
  • This was followed by the Royal Scandinavian Doily in light pink card stock. 
  • Then I added the Florence Filigree Doily with foam adhesive for dimension. 
  • I cut a layer using the Horizon Circle Boutique Stacker medium die.
  • The Bird Cage was added on top.


  • Cut the Daisy Strip, misted lightly with water, shaped and formed the layers and adhered.
  • Add the Princess Tree and arrange under the Daisy.
  • Hummingbird was cut next, then cut the wing a second time and attach to behind the bird. Ink edges and attach with foam adhesive for dimension.
  • Final step is to cut the smallest Horizon Fishtail Banner and trim to fit. Add sentiment by stamping or using a rub-on. Shape and attach by tucking under the Daisy.
  • Finishing touches were to add a pearl for an eye on the Hummingbird and gems in the corners of the Royal Scandinavian Doily.

Family Zoo Sign with BoBunny

1 comment:
Happy Monday to you!

I have a fun off the page project to share with you today featuring some all new products from BoBunny! The base for this project is a $3 dollar spot find at Target. I used the Safari collection to design this project along with our new Metallic Rubons.

"The Van Ginkel Zoo" - Chalkboard Sign

I thought it would be fun to create a custom sign for our front door using the new Gold Foil Metallic Rubons. They are so versatile and elegant.

The "zoo" letters are included in the 6x12 chipboard, I used them on top of the 12" film strip here. An addition of one of the buttons with some gold metallic string added just a bit of texture. You can also see where I've used the Gold Foil Metallic Rubons from the Filagree set and used the stitch marks on the frame.

Spring Inspiration with Cheery Lynn Designs

1 comment:
Thursday greetings to you!  It's my lucky day to share a project over on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog.

Right now where I live, we are in the midst of a super sub zero arctic deep freeze. To brighten my spirits I decided to create a card with some cheerful colors and a hint of Spring to it.

"I Like You" (A2 Card)

I recently received a few new dies, the Dutch Doily Rectangle Frame and the Bird on a Branch and I wanted to use them. I layered the Dutch Doily Rectangle Frame on top of a pretty card stock base that had a floral design in the bottom right corner.

Next, I pierced the scallop interior holes in the Doily Frame for texture. I cut the Alpine Doily Flourish from a scrap piece of vellum and layered it in the middle of the frame.


Next, I cut several varieties of florals using the Sunflower, Embellishments #3, Sweet Williams Strip, Dandelions and Tea Rose Medium. I also cut a pair of Wheat Heads. I mixed up my Sunflower layers for fun. The Sweet Williams Strip florals were lightly misted, scrunched up and inked, then glued together.


I layered in the Bird on a Branch and then completed the card with a few crystals and pearls along with the sentiment frame at the top. A tiny bit of gold string added a little texture to the floral composition.

I hope you liked my card today, I had a lot of fun making it!
