WRC December Kit: Embellishment Ideas

Hello! I have been playing with the December Kit from White Rose Crafts a lot this month, and I am really enjoying myself! I decided that today I would focus on a couple of the embellishments that come in the kit. I also chose to share 2 cards that feature the same plum-colored color palette.

Both of my cards feature a Topper from ScrapBerry's Elegantly Festive collection. I chose to also use ScrapBerry's coordinating 6" x 6" papers. The deep plum cardstock on both cards are from my personal stash. On this first card, you'll see a lovely lace bow. You actually get several of these in the December Kit! I love the little pearl in the center of the bow. This doesn't add so much dimension that you need to worry about mailing the card. I would probably add a thin piece of cardboard on top, just to protect the pearl, but I think it will mail fine.

I love the soft plum reindeer paper that I used on this card. I find reindeer to be quite elegant, and that was the look I was going for. I simply tore a piece to fit on the corner of my card. I did the same thing with the pale pink snowflake paper on my card below.

For this card, my special embellishment is the sequins from the Very Merry Sparkle Blend. You can only get this mix in the December Kit, so if you collect Sparkle Blends like I do, you'll need to be sure to grab a kit. Instead of making a shaker, or applying the sequins around my ScrapBerry Topper, I decided to make sort of my own sequined patterned paper. I thought this showed off some of the lovely sequins in this Blend nicely, and it really brought out the colors in the Topper. I adhered the sequins with On Point Glue from Imagine.

The cards I have been making from this kit have been coming together very quickly, which is awesome because I seem to be realllly short on time lately. I haven't needed to stamp much or color, and those things (though I love them both very dearly) can be a real time suck. It's been wonderful to bang out a bunch of cards with minimal supplies too. I really encourage you to look into this kit. Preorders are going on now, and I doubt they will last much longer. Please be sure to visit White Rose Crafts to see everything that is included in the December Kit. Thanks 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 "
