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 cut a piece of Lace Paper (I am obsessed with the stuff!). It softens the whole look of the card and adds a dreamy feel. I felt that the card needed a bit of sparkle, so I added a few sequins from the exclusive Sparkle Blend called Very Merry. You can only get this blend in this kit! I adhered them with On Point Glue from Imagine. My adhesives and 1 card base are the only thing that I used on these cards that wasn't included in the kit. 

For my second card, I fell in love with this tree scene, also from the ScrapBerry Elegantly Festive Toppers. I cut it out, then chose a teal stripe paper, as well as the GORGEOUS Lawn Fawn Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock. For a sentiment, I chose one of the many Kaiser Craft sentiment stickers and a sweet snowflake button (I clipped the back off with scissors). I adhered the button with a dollop of On Point Glue as well, and it worked perfectly. I love that I can bang out a bunch of cards fast, and they still look great!

How would you like to see what else is inside the White Rose Crafts December Subscription Box? I did a Facebook Live to show my unboxing of the kit. You can check it out below. Keep in mind, YouTube doesn't show the FB comments, so if some of what I say doesn't make sense, it's because you can't see the comments! Feel free to visit my FB page to see them.

So that's it for me today. I hope you enjoyed these first 2 cards. I will be back soon with more from this fabulous kit. And if you would like to pre-order yours now, please head on over to THIS LINK to get yours! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
