Modern Leaves

Hello! Last week, the White Rose Crafts team shared projects using products from Woodware. I decided to keep the party going by making this card. I used a stamp from the same Woodland Elements set that I used last week.
 I started off by coloring the stamped image with Zigs....very basic coloring, to give it more of a stained glass look. I fussy cut it out and then chose the rest of my elements. I used some orchid colored paper with a small leaf stamp in the Woodland Elements set and embossed it with Ranger's Rose Gold powder. Then I inked the edges a little with Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink.
 I found paper with a small pattern in the Bombay Sunset 6 x 6 paper pack from Kaisercraft that was just perfect for my background. I cut it to 4" x 5 1/4" so that I had room to add more Rose Gold embossing powder directly on to my card base. I love the shine it gives off. My sentiment is also from the Bombay Sunset paper pack.
The colors on this card are very serene, and I…

Dude, Let's Celebrate

Greetings! Today I am sharing a card that features the new "Mardi Gras Parade" Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground, along with 2 of the "Sweet Treats" stamps from Stampendous.
 I stamped the ice cream cone and doughnut  repeatedly all over my background with VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne. Then I used Koi Watercolors to paint them. I mixed a few of the colors myself, like the pistachio ice cream and the frosting on the doughnut. That's always something I love to do, no matter the medium. I used some "Crushed Grapes" Nuvo Drops on the pistachio ice cream to add a bit of shine and dimension beyond the sequins I was going to add.
 The "Mardi Gras Parade" Sparkle Blend is filled with shades of purple, green, and gold. It even has glitter sequins and day-glow sequins! As perfect as it is for Mardi Gras, don't pigeon hole it for just that purpose. It will work for many occasions. You can see some of the beautiful colors in the Blend i…

Woodware and White Rose Crafts

Hello! I've got a simple little card for you today that features a sweet stamp from Woodware. This week, the White Rose Crafts team is featuring creations using Woodware products. My card uses the Woodland Elements stamp set. I'll actually have another card featuring a different stamp from this set later in the month.
I stamped the image with VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne, and then did some very basic coloring with my Zig Clean Color Markers. It only took a few minutes to color this image in. I fussy cut it out, then started to look through my 6" x 6" paper pads. White Rose Crafts has a ton of paper pad option, and I like the 6" x 6" pattern sizes. This paper is from the Altair Art "Ever Dream" paper collection. It's a double sided set of cardstock, so that little pink strip under the image is actually the reverse side of the blue!
 Using patterned cardstock from one collection is a great way to speed up your paper crafting process. It's…

The Brilliant Colors of Amethyst

Hello Sparkle Blends fans! I've got a new shaker card to share with you, using one of the newest Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground, called "Amethyst." It's part of the birthstone collection, and it truly captures the brilliant colors of amethyst. Amethyst the stone comes in varying shades of purple, sometimes tinged with pink, and very often has veins of white running through it. That is exactly what is embodied in this mix of sequins, mini gems, and glitter sequins.
 I chose to color up a Laurel Burch cat for this card. It's actually a holiday stamp, but by switching up the colors and design of the card, this image can absolutely be used all year long. I colored the cat with Zig Clean Color Markers, and I used Nuvo Drops to fill in the "ornaments' on the tree.
 For my background, I chose to use Spun Sugar, Seedless Preserves, and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxides. I blended the colors together and heat set them. Then I added a Laurel Burch sen…
