Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Hello! It's time for a White Rose Crafts Blog Hop. This month, we are celebrating Winter Wonder. We will be creating inspiration projects featuring snowflakes, snowmen, ice, winter critters, skating, sledding and everything else that goes along with this cold and beautiful season. In addition to the incredibly talented WRC design team, we are also very excited to be collaborating with several members of the Doodles Paper Playground team. I am please to be a part of both teams. We invite you to hop along with us, and be sure to leave a comment on every leg of the hop! We will be giving away prizes and offering a Blog Candy Discount Code, so be sure to visit every stop on the hop for more chances to win! All of the prize details are at the bottom of my post. Now, let's take a look at my project.

My card uses lots of products from the White Rose Crafts December Subscription Kit. The only items I used that are not from the kit, is my blue and white cardstock, and Memento Ink in Sw…

Get Kids Crafty November Hop: Christmas Unicorn

Hello and welcome to the November Get Kids Crafty Blog Hop! This month, our theme is Christmas. When I mentioned the theme to my daughter, she knew what she wanted to make right away.

Rhiannon loves everything unicorn. She's like her Mom! We found this unicorn stamp with coordinating die at Michaels from their Recollections brand. She thought this would be the perfect focal for a magical Christmas card.

She colored her unicorn with Memento markers from Imagine and a gold metallic marker from Spectrum Noir. She die cut the unicorn, then a couple of Fitted Frames from Stampendous to use as mats. To add more sparkle and magic, Rhiannon added some sequins from Doodles Paper Playground. She used the Bells are Ringing and Boughs of Holly Sparkle Blends. And since you can never have too much sparkle, she also added some Stickles to the mane, and around the unicorn.

Miss R has been working on her handwriting, so she chose to write her sentiment out instead of stamping or die cutting it. I…

Intro to the WRC December Kit

Hello! Today is my first post that will be highlighting the December Subscription Kit from White Rose Crafts LLC. I am not one that is usually interested in subscription boxes. I usually like to just choose my own products and combinations, but I have to say, it was so refreshing to have someone else do the work for me for once! Everything coordinates so beautifully, I love the colors, and the products are wonderful to work with. I was able to put together multiple cards very quickly, so I decided that for each of my posts this month that feature this Subscription Box, I will share at least 2 projects. Today, I am highlighting 2 cards that are predominantly teal. 

My first card came together very quickly. I started off with the turquoise card base that comes in the kit (with an envelope!). Then I chose my focal image which is from ScrapBerry's Elegantly Festive Toppers. I paired it with one of their 6" x 6" papers that's a rich plum color.

For an additional layer, I …

Aurora Wings Challenge #72

Hello! Today I have a project for the Aurora Wings Challenge #72, "Once Upon a Dream or Nightmare." Of course, I had to go the nightmare route and I chose to work with the haunting A Dark Undercurrent (Full Version).

Coloring this image was such a blast. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I went with an unusual color palette for her, and I love the end result. Here's a close up.

To add white highlights to the pearls in her hair and on one of the skulls, I used a Posca Pen. Of all the white pens I have used, I think that one is my favorite.

I used cream Lace Paper from White Rose Crafts behind my colored image to add some texture and the idea of movement. Then, to add more texture and to add additional "treasure" to the mermaid's stash, I glued down some of the Ocean Legend Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground (no longer available). You can see a teeny gold anchor and ship's wheel tucked into the mix. I adhered them down with On Point G…

Molten Metal Jacks

Happy Halloween!Today I have a Halloween card, which I feel like I have seriously been missing out on this October. I began creating this card on a Facebook Live, where I shared how to do the Molten Metal Technique. I used the Jack O Lanterns Stencil for this technique. To see how it's done, please check out replay below.

And here is the finished card...

After I finished the Molten Metal Technique, I colored in the eyes and mouths of the Jacks with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Then I created a sky and ground with Chipped Sapphire, Frayed Burlap, and Black Soot Distress Ink.

I dug through my scraps and found a cool piece of orange cardstock to stick behind my Jacks. Then I created my card base out of brown cardstock. I decide to mimic my Distress Ink background, so I tore a piece of deep blue cardstock, and dripped on some Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost for a touch of additional shine.

Thanks to the cool technique on the Jack O Lanterns, I didn't really need to do much mo…
