Last Chance Sunshine & Rainbows

Rainbow & Sunshine Invite

Today's share is a birthday invitation I created for our niece for her 2nd Golden Birthday. The theme was rainbows!! Super fun idea to do too! I've listed several options in my Etsy Shop for this invitation. Over the years I have had the privilege of making many different invitations, party decorations and etc. for many special events. Handmade decorations and invites make the occasion even more special and it's been so fun to be part of the planning of these events! I've done birthday, retirement, graduation, birth announcements, baptisms, christmas, bachelorette, bridal showers, baby showers, wedding, going away, teacher workshops, bible camps and retreats, welcome home, summer bbq and etc. If you would like invites or decorations please feel free to email rubberredneck@gmail.com

Family Gift: National Popcorn Day + Retired Lists

04-09-18_header_onstagenovember_eng

Hello, hello lots of stuff going on for us around here sorry been missing in action. April is my normal crazy hectic month worse than Christmas (how is that possible even lol) Hubby and I went to Wisconsin and I attended Onstage were I got the New Catalog!! I had a blast! It was AWESOME!!! I'll have more about that this next week.

After getting back we started working on a lot of projects and they are taking way longer than we thought they would. lol Then I had several teeth break apparently I didn't have a good dentist, that lead me to a new dentist and some very not good news. Ughh I've had to have lots of major work done the past two months which has resulted to lots of pain, not being able to eat much and some pretty nasty migraines thus why I've been missing. Make sure you have a good dentist!!

News

I have so much to share with you all! That I will be breaking up the info over a few days of blog posts so it's not so much at once! So be sure to stop back I plan on doing several blog posts a day or subscribe to my blog so you don't miss out on anything.

Ready to Pop Stamp Set
Ready to Pop Stamp Set

  Today's project features 2 of the items on the retiring list the Ready to Pop Photopolymer Stamp Set & Popcorn Box Thinlit. I love these two items and I am sad to see them go since I really thought they were very versatile. I also used them to create one of the gifts I made for our family.

IMG_0068

Did you know there is a National Popcorn Day? I sure did not! lol When I saw it listed, I knew I wanted to do it immediately because I owned this set and die and because I LOVE popcorn. I actually pop it like how my family did when I was a kid on the stove in a pan. I just use Olive Oil instead of vegetable oil sometimes we melt butter and put it on there too. This was one of the family gifts for our year of gifts. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE or visit my pinterest board  Rubber Redneck Year Gifts to see them all in one spot.

The popcorn bowl came from Target's dollar spot. I walked in and there they were exactly 5 on the shelf left. WOW and too funny, they were $5 a piece but we both thought they were cool and wanted to included them. They were heavy and nice well worth the $5. I found read clear jars from the dollar spot at target and filled them with popcorn seeds. We also add microwave popcorn and some butter sprinkle stuff. I decorated the microwave popcorn with a bell band.

IMG_0066

Here is a top view to see inside the bowl better.

IMG_4538

Using the Ready to Pop Stamp Set I stamped the images then die cut them out using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, Popcorn Box Thinlits and Layering Ovals Framelits. Is this not stinkin cute? I then created the popcorn box out of Whisper White card stock again using the Big Shot Die cut Machine and the Popcorn Box Thinlit. I cut strips of Real Red card stock to make it look like the old time popcorn container. I had some left over red straws from the christmas gifts so I added them to the gift to. Overall the gift cost us around $15 per family not to bad if you would like to make this as a gift idea down the road.

Here is one that Stampin' Up! made using the Popcorn Box Thinlit.

See so versatile would work for anything! They used the You've Got This Stamp Set which is another retiring stamp set this year too.

The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, you can hop along from one blog to the next gathering all kinds of inspiration for one Stampin' Up! stamp set.

If you are following the hop in order you just arrived from Kelly's BLOG where she showed you all something fabulous and inspiring!!

We are featuring the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Photopolymer Stamp Set item #143662 from the 2018 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog. This is such a fun stamp set! Balloons and flowers, and messages, oh my! Create the perfect card or gift packaging for any birthday!!

I am excited we are featuring a birthday stamp set in April it is literally my most craziest month of the year for me (it beats December WOW). We normally have many events going on but our family also has multiple birthday's in this month too; so not only did I get a card created for this hop I am able to have a birthday card done for my long list of peeps celebrating birthdays this month! Thanks so much Tanya ;) for helping a girl out!

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Card 1

I went for a simple and more clean look this time around. How did I do? Lately I've been into really challenging myself...I don't know why either. I actually had trouble not adding a zillion layers. lol

IMG_3148

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Cut a piece of Whisper White thick card stock 4 1/4" x 11". Score at 5 1/2" with our Simply Scored Scoring Tool to create a card base. Cut another piece of Whisper White thick card stock 4" x 5 1/4".
  • Stamp the leaves and flowers in the following colors: Berry Burst, Lemon Lime, Powder Pink, and Daffodil Delight.

Rubber Redneck Quick Tip: Place your card stock onto a Stampin' Pierce Mat and then stamp onto the card stock. This helps me get a clean and crisp image with our Photopolymer Stamps.

  • Cut a piece of Lemon Lime Twist 3/8 Mini Stripped Ribbon (my favorite ribbon) and adhere to the Whisper White panel with Glue Dots.
  • Ink the greeting from Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set in Berry Burst and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White Thick card stock. Zip it though the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine with the Stitched Shapes Framelits die cutting out the greeting. Stamp a couple of flowers on the right side in Powder Pink.
  • Add some Silver Metallic Thread and 1 of the Touches of Nature Elements to the back of the oval. Adhere to the Whisper White panel with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Adhere the Whisper White panel to the Whisper White card base. Rhinestone Basic Jewels add a perfect little accent to finish the card.

Memories & More: Project 40

Project 40 Blog Banner

Hey Peeps!

Super excited to share with you all my plans for documenting this years journey! Hubby and I started doing this in 2015 and it's turned into something really fun for us to do each year to document our life! Since we've started this project it has really expanded for us in a lot of ways. First we pick an idea for a theme for us to focus on. I have our themes listed below.

2015 - Adventures
2016 - New
2017 - Life's a Party
2018 - Project 40 I got this!

Why do we choose a theme? For us it helps us focus and tell a story about our year in our words. For example last year's theme was Life's A Party, we picked that because we knew how many big celebrations we would be doing last year and if fit so well.....what we didn't know is how funny it would be because we of course had new clue what we would go through with my dad. So for us it was pretty hilarious because life sure was not a party! lol

So how did we come up with this year's theme? I turned 40 in December. December was a pretty bad month for us and we also spent most of it sick, what a way to celebrate a big milestone right? Hubby felt really bad my party had to be cancelled as he wanted to do something special for me to celebrate me. I kept telling him it's ok you can't control what happens in life but he was pretty upset. So the idea was born to create like a 40 Bucket List for us to do this year to celebrate turning 40....the idea Project 40 I got this was born! lol We thought it would be fun to pick 40 things to do....do you know how hard it is come up with 40 things that won't break the bank. At least we had fun doing it and didn't kill each other! LOL We had a blast decorating our album cover last year so hubby defiantly wanted us to do that again this year are you ready for it?

2018 Album

SWEET!!! Right??!! It turned out way better than I had hoped it would! I used our Black Faux Leather 12" x 12" Album item #144202. We decorated the cover using the Silhouette, Silver and White Vinyl. It's way cooler in person! 

My Plans:

  • Document daily as we've done in the past we prefer it.
  • Stick with using the pocket photo pages. I like the look and feel of it when things are done.
  • Use 12 x 12 size so I can still incorporate my 12 x 12 traditional scrapbook pages into it.
  • Use a planner for documenting our day's notes. I tried this last year and I liked having another project to decorate. However I only got the first 3 month's done it's a little time consuming but I liked how I was able to use product up and it really helped my creativity process way more than I thought it would kinda like testing ideas out first. lol I'll be sharing more of this down the road.
  • I am not doing a box this year to hold my cards until I am done. I know many of you loved me sharing this but this year I want to focus on getting caught up!

My Goals:

  • To get the past albums DONE this year. I am working on ideas to help others as well if your in the same boat as me! haha
  • Finish this year's album on time! I am setting specific time aside for me each week to just have fun with this project.

My Cover Page for the start of the Album used 3 of the Sale-A-Bration items! Today is the last day to earn those FREEBIES!!!!

Cover Page SAB

You may have seen this project already I used it for The Stamp Review Crew Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop HERE. Finally sharing the details today! My title card in the top left corner. I printed out the phrases onto Whisper White card stock. I wanted to bring in more color to the white so I underlined each phrase using the Berry Burst Stampin' Write Marker. To create this I used the following Sale-A- Bration Items.

Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack

Sweet Soiree Memoreis & More Card Pack are the cards I used for the pockets. I color coordinated with them by using our various products that match. I decorated the cards using using the Myths & Magic and Tutti-frutti Washi Tape, Silver Metallic Thread, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit, and 1/2 Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon. I also cut and die cut some of the Sweet Soriee Memories & More Card Pack to decorate the other cards. To die cut the cards I used the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine with the Stitched Shape Framelits.

Epic Celebrations

I used the dots stamp to stamp on my top left corner card on my layout and to create a banner on one of the bottom cards. I inked the stamp in Old Olive and used Old Olive card stock.

Left Side

Close up of the left side of my cover page to add the glitter amazing I used the following.

Celebrate You Thinlits

I used the Celebrate You Thinlits to die cut out the word "amazing" in Silver Glimmer Paper and added it to my bottom left card. I loved adding a word to the pre-printed card to create a title.

Dare to Dream Hostess Set

To decorate the big heart card I used Hostess Set Dare to Dream. This is one of my favorite hostess sets this year!! To get this set have an online catalog party, catalog party, place a minimum hostess party order to qualify for it or join my team (I welcome all stampers from hobby to career minded demos)! I inked the adventure phrase in Versa Mark and Old Olive. Stamped onto a piece of Whisper White card stock and embossed it with the Clear Embossing Powder. To add "the" and "Awaits" I inked those stamps in Versa Mark and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and stamped onto the card. I then embossed using the Clear Embossing Powder.

Family Gifts: Easter Bunny

Easter Family Gift

Back with another fun family gift! This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE or visit my pinterest board  Rubber Redneck Year Gifts to see them all in one spot.

To create this gift I sued the retired Basket Bunch Bundle from last year's Occasions Catalog. I was so sad this didn't get carried over to our main catalog it was so cute and fun to create with! Remember those Mini Egg Cartons? So fun to decorate too! Inside was random different things for each family. For some of my sister in-laws I found these cute egg shaped wine toppers, change for the kids, some Easter candy, Easter theme socks.

IMG_0337

I wrapped the Mini Egg cartons with our retired Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper and Linen Thread. I die cut out the basket in Crumb Cake using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and the Basket Builder Framelits. I stamped the bunnies in Early Espresso on Early Espresso card stock. The second bunny was done in Sweet Sugarplum ink on Sweet Sugarplum card stock. Then I zipped the pieces through the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine with the Basket Builder Framelits. I assembled the cute little basket and add the greeting onto it. Then so I could keep track I wrote family names on the basket. Soo Cute! Then finished with a Pearl Basic Jewel.

IMG_0343

While shopping hubby found some Easter theme pezz dispensers. He grew up with them as a treat so he wanted to include those in the gift for sentimental reason. lol 

IMG_0332

For our nephew I happen to find an Easter bib that was soo cute!! To decorate the inside of the package I used colored tissue and the grass filler you put in Easter Baskets. I honestly have no clue what made me think to do it but I sure thought it made it feel more Easter like! lol

Supplies Used
Stamps: Basket Bunch
Ink: Early Espresso, Sweet Sugarplum
Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Sweet Sugarplum, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper
Acc.: Big Shot, Basket Builder Framelits, Mini Egg Cartons, Linen Thread, Pearl Basic Jewels

Family Gifts: Valentines Day Dragon Fly Dreams

I know Valentine's Day is over but great idea for you to do next year! Get a jump start! This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit my Pinterest Board HERE. Follow me on Pinterest so you don't miss out on anything!

Valentine Gifts

  I need something that didn't include candy (some family member's don't eat candy), would work for everyone and all ages (to make it easier on me). I had seen on pinterest ages ago paper firecrackers that someone had made, inside where rolos so I thought that idea would be perfect for all the males but instead of rolos I did a roll of pennies! The chapstick holder idea I saw something similar on a blog years ago somewhere and had saved it to my idea folder. Which Stampin' Up! obliged me by coming out with a bumble bee and thinlit. I swear they were reading my mind when I was planning out the year gifts! lol Then we printed out the fact sheet for Valentine's Day.

IMG_0158

The kids loved them! It's a very inexpensive gift too! I had a little under a $1 into this gift.

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • You will need a roll of pennies.  Cut a piece of Real Red card stock big enough to fit around a roll of pennies and to over lap the end.

We have lots of chap-stick lovers in our family so I thought this idea would be perfect! I thought the Burt's Bee Chap-Stick was perfect for this little gift! lol

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock the exact width of the length of the chap-stick you purchase.
  • Take the bumblee bee image from Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set; ink it in Daffodil Delight and stamp onto the Whisper White card stock.
  • Zip a piece of Basic Black card stock through the Big Shot with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits die cutting it out. Tip use the Big Shot Die Brush to remove all the little pieces. Then glue over the stamped bumble bee. So cute!
  • Take the stamp from Tin of Cards Stamp Set (retired) ink it in Tuxedo Black and stamp below the bumble bee.
  • Ink the stamp from Sealed With Love Stamp Set (retired) in Real Red and stamp below the greeting.
  • Cut a piece of Real Red card stock a little bit bigger than the Whisper White card stock.
  • Glue the Whisper White and Real Red card stock together.
  • Punch 4 holes using the 1/8 handheld Circle Punch through the layers.
  • Attach the chap-stick to the tag with Solid Whisper White Baker's Twine.
  • To finish add a heart to the bumble bee from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Supplies Used
Stamps: Dragonfly Dreams, Sealed With Love, Tin of Cards
Ink: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red
Acc.: Big Shot, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Solid Whisper White Baker's Twine, Metallic Enamel Shapes, 1/8 Handheld Circle Punch, Big Shot Die Brush

Sealed With Love Bundle

I had some fun Valentine Treat Bags that I got from Target's Dollar Spot. Everything was packaged into the bag and then I created a tag for the outside using the Sealed With Love Bundle that has since retired. I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock. Stamped the greeting in Old Olive and the hearts in Calypso Coral. I die cut out a piece of Real Red card stock using the Big Shot. I attached to the bag with a piece of sending love ribbons (retired).

Family Gifts: Christmas Countdown Day 3 + Day 4

Hey Peeps,

Back with my last blog post for the day ;) Another batch of Family Gifts for their Christmas countdown. I am pinning everything to my Family 25 Days Christmas Countdown Board on pinterest too.

Day 3

It's important to write those letters to Santa so how about these AWESOME Santa Letter Board!! I made a couple of different ones so they weren't all the same. lol

Santa's Letter Board 3

The directions below are for this one but all the paper is the same measurement for all of them. Some of the product you can still purchase but some has retired. We picked up the frames at a craft store and then painted the frames. They took 2 coats.

To Create this you will need the following supplies:

  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Big Frame Board (I got this at a craft store)
  • Delta Red Paint
  • Foam Brush
  • Stampin' Up! Supplies

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Cut 1 Sheet of Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper 11 3/4" x 11 3/4" for the background. I modgepodged this to the board.

Create a pocket:

  • Cut 1 piece of Basic Black card stock 1" x 11 3/4" score at 1/2", fold on the scored line and attach the bottom of the board inside.
  • Cut 2 pieces of Basic Black card stock 1" x 4" and score at 1/2" on each side. Glue each piece to the the sides of the board towards the bottom inside.
  • Cut 1 piece of the Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper in a different patter 5" x 11 3/4". Glue the dsp to the basic black card stock that is facing up forming a pocket.

Decorate:

  • Cut a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper 1" x 11 3/4". Slide so it goes into the pocket and glue to the board. This helps break up the patterns of the paper.
  • Die cut out the Gold Foil Sheet using the Big Shot and Santa's Sleigh Thinlits.
  • Stamp the deer in Tuxed Black Memento Ink onto Kraft card stock. Zip through the Big Shot with the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits. Color the reindeer hooves in using the Basic Black Marker.
  • Stamp the trees in Emerald Envy onto Emerald Envy card stock. Zip through the Big Shot with the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits. Add Dazzling Diamonds to the tree.
  • Assemble your scene and attach with Stampin' Dimensionals. I used the Baker's Twine Trio Pack to make reins.
  • Hot glue the Kraft Rope around the edges on the inside and hot glue a reindeer to the top right corner.

Santa's Letter Board 1

Santa's Letter Board 2

Awesome right? These were a blast to make but they do take about 2 days because of the painting. The Santa Letter slides right into the pocket. The Santa Letter I found on Pinterest and posted the PDF here for you all if you would like to print your own.

The cards for my side of the family we put on them Redneck Made Elves Inc. My family is always making fun of me and calling me a redneck and hubby said he felt like a elf so we decided to be silly one night while making gifts. This is what happens when you go on little sleep and inhale fumes. lol

I of course couldn't just keep them the same. lol
