“What Was I Thinking?” Clock

by Debbie


To say I like RubberMoon Stamps is an understatement because I L-O-V-E them! They’re so quirky, so witty, and so unconventional. I was thrilled to learn that IMAGINE Crafts would be collaborating with RubberMoon Stamps this month.

For my project, I decided to get creative with one of the RubberMoon clock kits. As I write this posting, the clock is working perfectly . . . the time is correct and the second-hand is rotating around the clock very nicely. My first real mechanical achievement! My personal thank you to RubberMoon for their generosity when supplying us with their stamps and Creative Clock Kit. The uniqueness of RubberMoon stamps really helps the creative process!


  • IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko: irRESISTible Pico Embellisher Wedding White, irRESISTible Craft Spray Danube Blue, Vertigo Prism, GooseBumps Texture Spray Shimmer, StazOn: Blue Hawaii, Hydrangea Blue, Midnight Blue, Opaque Cotton White; GlazOn, VersaMark, VersaFine: Toffee, Majestic Blue, Satin Red, Deep Lagoon; Shimmer Spritz Frost, Embossing Powder Clear, InkBlushers, Tack ‘N Peel Reusable Cling Sheet
  • RubberMoon Stamps: “What Was I Thinking”, “Kae Pea Sun Sweet”, “Sunny”, “See the Moon”; Time for Mixed Media Clock Kit
  • Spellbinders: Standard Circles Nestabilties
  • Sizzix: Big Shot die cutting machine and metal adapter plate
  • Tombow: Mono Liquid Glue
  • Miscellaneous: wooden toothpick; Japanese hole punch; adhesive flat-back crystals, AA battery for clock



Die cut the Vertigo with the largest circle nestability die. Be sure to use the metal adapter plate to ensure a clean cut. You may find that you might have to pass this through the die cutting machine several times depending on your die cutting machine.

With an InkBlusher, dab StazOn Hydrangea Blue onto the backside of the Vertigo. Allow to dry, then apply a thin coating of the GlazOn* with an InkBlusher. Allow to dry. Dab on the StazOn in Blue Hawaii; allow to dry and then apply another thin coat of GlazOn. Allow to dry. Dab on the StazOn in Midnight Blue; allow to dry and apply another thin coat of GlazOn. Allow to dry.

*GlazOn allows you to layer StazOn colors without color migration, allowing the integrity of each color to remain true. It also allows you to layer another color without also picking ‘up’ the previous color when the solvents in each react to each other.


Apply a piece of Tack “n Peel to the backside of the unmounted sentiment stamp, and adhere to an acrylic stamp block. On the front side of the Vertigo, stamp the RubberMoon sentiment stamp in the center with the StazOn Opaque in Cotton White.


Coat the base (top and sides) and clock face (front and back) with Memento in Pistachio to give them an underlying weathered look. Allow to dry. Coat both sides of the u-post with VersaFine in Majestic Blue. Allow to dry.


Stamp the “I Love the Moon” sentiment stamp with the Red Satin around the edge of the circle, and stamp it in Majestic Blue around the center. After it has dried, spray with the clear GooseBumps and let dry. On the other side, stamp the sun face stamp in Majestic Blue around the perimeter of the clock (face side up) so there are stamped lines showing on the outside edge of the Vertigo. After it is dry, spray with the Shimmer Spray and allow to dry.

Apply VersaMark to the entire surface of the base, apply the Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. Do this twice. Then spray the base with the Danube Blue irRESISTible Craft Spray. Spray heavily in 2-3 areas and with a toothpick, draw the color out in all directions to form ‘legs’. Allow to completely dry.

Coat the number ring with the VersaMark in Majestic Blue. Allow to dry. For an “icy” look, apply the Pico Embellisher in Wedding White along the lines of each number; allow to completely dry.

Lay the Vertigo on top of the clock face, making sure to keep it in place when you turn the clock face over to the backside. Using the backside’s center hole, cut a center hole through the Vertigo with the Japanese hole punch. Make sure the hole is big enough to allow the white and yellow tip of the clock mechanism. Assemble the remaining pieces of the clock (hands, washer and hex nut). Glue the number ring around the Vertigo.

Follow the remaining directions for the clock assembly that is in the kit, including inserting a AA battery into the clock mechanism. Set the hands to the correct time. Adhere an adhesive flat-backed crystal to each corner of the base.

Enjoy your RubberMoon clock! Because of the Vertigo and depending upon the lighting, the clock face might appear as if it is floating in space.

Have An ICE Day

by Debbie

Lawn Fawn AIR Project Nov. 2014

Lawn Fawn’s photopolymer clear stamps are exceptionally well made and worked wonderfully with the inks I used from IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko. I loved the characters and accompanying sentiments in the “Critters in the Attic” stamp set.


  • IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko:  Brilliance: Pearlescent Sky Blue, Peacock (multi-colored ink pad); VersaFine: Onyx Black and Majestic Blue; VersaMagic: Turquoise Gem, Sea Breeze, Niagara Mist; irREISISTible Pico Embellisher Wedding Dress, Goosebumps Texture Spray Shimmer, Ink Potion No. 9, Fantastix (Bullet Point and Brush Tip), InkBlushers
  • Lawn Fawn Critters in the Attic Stamp Set LF 708
  • Prima:  6×6 Irregular Dots Stencil
  • Copic Markers:  Cool Gray No. 1, 2 & 7; Prussian Blue
  • Spellbinders Dies:  Classic Squares Small, Labels Twelve
  • Authentique Paper: Anchored paper collection
  • Cardstock/paper:  140 lb. cold press watercolor paper by Strathmore, 65 lb. black card stock, Coconut Velvet Paper from SEI, 118 lb. Conqueror Card Stock in White Diamond (5×5 card), blue Mirricard card stock
  • Miscellaneous:  light blue crystals, Scor Tape, Tombow Mono Adhesive, Glue Dots, removable adhesive tape


1. Using the Brilliance Peacock multi-colored inkpad, apply color onto the watercolor paper with an InkBlusher using the Prima stencil. Spray the paper with Ink Potion No. 9 to blend the colors a little. Allow to dry.


2. Stamp the walrus and “smile” sentiment onto the stenciled paper with VersaFine in Onxy Black. Stamp the walrus again onto white paper and cut out to use as a mask.

3. With removable adhesive, tape the walrus mask over the stamped walrus. Stamp the ice flow block so the walrus is sitting on it. Remove mask.

4. Color the ice flow block with the Brilliance in Pearlescent Sky Blue, VersaMagic Sea Breeze, Turquoise Gem and Niagara Mist using the Fantastix.

5. Color the walrus with Copic markers – use the Prussian Blue Copic Marker on the eyes, nose and outline of the tusks.

6. Stamp the sentiment “have an ice day” under images with VersaFine in Majestic Blue.

7. Spray the card stock with Goosebumps in Shimmer. Allow to dry.

8. Die cut the walrus image with the next-to-the-largest square die. Die cut black card stock with the largest square die. Cut the velvet paper into a 4-inch square. Die cut the center with the largest Label Twelve die so the 4-inch square can be used as a frame.

9. Adhere the stamped image to the black square die cut. Adhere this set to the base panel card stock from Authentique (4-3/4” square), offset a little to the right. Overlay the velvet frame die cut and adhere with 1/4” Scor Tape along the 4 edges, and glue dots on each inside corner.

10. Randomly adhere different sizes of light blue crystals on the left side of the card. If you have any left-over die cut pieces from another project that are appropriate, use them; in this case, a wheel and a very small circle die cut were used from a project using blue Mirricard card stock.

11. Place the tiny circle die as a “dot” to the “i” in smile; placed the wheel die cut around one of the crystals.

12. With the irRESISTible Pico Embellisher, make small white dots on top of some of the background stenciled dots for snow. Allow to dry.

  • Embellishments: Webster’s Pages (floral); SEI Mia Bella Sundries (spiral paper clip, acrylic blossoms, and feather charm)
  • Miscellaneous: mini Zots; 1/4-inch Scor Tape or Red Line Tape; Scor Board



1. Cut two pieces of black chipboard, 6” square.

2. Adhere the text print designed tissue paper to Bazzill card stock with Creative Medium; spread the Creative Medium on the entire piece of card stock, adhere the tissue paper, and apply another layer of Creative Medium on top of the tissue paper. Allow to completely dry. Trim to 5-3/4” square.

3. Color the tissue paper with StazOn Midi’s in Emerald City leaving open spaces; allow to dry. Apply GlazOn over the entire surface and allow to dry. Add StazOn in Blue Hawaii, leaving a few small open spots; allow to dry. Apply GlazOn over the entire surface and allow to dry. Add StazOn in Spiced Chai and allow to dry. Apply a finishing coat of GlazOn over the entire surface and allow to completely dry.

4. With the largest square die, cut a square out of the center to make a frame.

5. Stamp the image with VersaMark onto the bronze card stock (5” square) and emboss with the silver embossing powder. Adhere to the backside of the frame so only the image shows through.

6. Adhere another piece of Bazzill card stock, trimmed to 5-7/8” square, to the black chipboard 6” square slightly off-set at an angle (see photo of completed cover). Then adhere the framed piece on top, again at a slight angled offset.

7. Spray the entire piece with the GooseBumps. While spraying, concentrate the spray in one spot to adhere the velvet floral and wire clip/charm embellishments, as well as the acrylic flower blossoms. Once they’re adhered, do another quick spray of GooseBumps all over. Allow to completely dry. Adhere the sequins with mini zots to the center of the acrylic blossoms and three spots along the left side of the frame opening.

8. With the second piece of black chipboard to be used as the back cover, spray the outside back with Fireworks! and allow to completely dry. Then place a scrap of decorated paper to the inside of the back cover that is trimmed to 5-15/16” square.

9. Cut several pieces of the white card stock to 11” long by 5-3/4” for the inside pages.

10. Along the long side, score at 5-3/4”. Flip the card stock over with the score line to the right, and score 1/4” from the left side. These pages will form the z-fold pages for the inside of the book.

11. Fold along the score lines. The “hill” of the score line goes to the inside of the fold. You will fold the 5-3/4” score line in one direction; and you will fold the 1/4” score line in the other direction so the “hill” or “bump” remains inside the fold.

12. Place your pages together. The outer unscored edge will tuck inside the scored edge of the next page to form the z-fold line of book pages. Place 1/4” red line adhesive tape or Scor Tape along the bottom edge of the unscored edge that will fit against the 1/4” folded edge of the next page. Press into place with your bone folder.

13. After the pages are put together, center and adhere to the inside of the front and back cover.

Halloween Greetings

by Debbie



  • IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko: Fireworks: Tangelo, Cantaloupe, Pear Tart; irRESISTible Texture Spray Dandelion, Ink Potion No. 9
  • Memory Box dies: Elliana Detail Plate, Elliana Backgound, Cirque Alphabet Tags
  • Lifestyle Crafts: Lattice Embossing Folder
  • Prismatic Card Stock: Black (base panel, die overlay and small panel)
  • Mizuhiki: Paper Cord in Red Nishiki
  • Midori: Halloween “Boo” ribbon
  • Tombow: MONO Multi Liquid Glue; ZOTS glue dots (mini)
  • Miscellaneous: heavy weight white vellum, pre-cut/scored ivory card base 5˝ x 6 1/4˝, Mirrircard Card Stock in copper, micro hole punch

1. Cut the black base panel to 4-7/8” x 6-1/8” and adhere to the front of the base card.
2. Cut another black piece 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”.


3. Cut two pieces of the heavy weight vellum to 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”.
4. Spray one of the vellum pieces with Ink Potion No. 9, followed by Danelion irRESISTible Texture Spray followed by Fireworks! in Cantaloupe, touch of Pear Tart, and a good overlay of Tangelo. Dab with a paper towel very lightly to pick up any puddles and allow to dry. TIP: Spraying the paper with Ink Potion No. 9 minimizes the curl of the vellum when you spray with the Fireworks! and irRESISTible Craft Spray.


5. Emboss the second piece of vellum with the Elliana Detail Plate.
6. Adhere the embossed vellum onto the black card top panel.
7. Die-cut the colored vellum piece (back-side of vellum face up and the colored side closest to the metal die) and the black piece with the Elliana Background die. Before removing the steel die from the vellum piece, tape the backside with removable tape so the pieces stay intact; make sure the tape strips stick out from both sides to act like handles when you remove the vellum from the die.


8. Adhere the individual vellum die pieces onto the embossed vellum base in the appropriate spots. If you keep the pieces intact with the low-tack removable tape, it will make finding the appropriate pieces much easier. If you didn’t keep the pieces taped together and you enjoy putting puzzles together, this won’t be a problem.
9. Spray colored vellum piece on the left, white vellum piece embossed with Elliana Detail Plate on right.

10. After the individual pieces are attached, emboss the black overlay die cut with the Lattice embossing folder.
11. Adhere the overlay die-cut to the card top. There will be small traces of the white vellum showing because the dry embossing has stretched the paper. The white peeking through adds another element of depth.
12. Cut a small piece of black card stock 1-3/16” x 3-3/8”.
13. With a micro hole punch, make a hole on each side of ths piece approximately 3/16”from each side to thread the Mizuhiki cord.
14. Die-cut 2 sets of the Cirque Alphabet Tags with the copper mirrircard. Use one ‘B’ and two ‘O’s’ to spell ‘BOO’.
15. Hang the letters from the Mizuhuki paper cord on the small black piece and secure each letter on the backside with a mini Zot.
16. Secure the paper cord on the backside with tape.
17. Adhere the small piece at an angle on the left upper part of the card top.
18. Tie a small bow with the Midori ribbon and adhere with a Zot.
