Festive Elegance Blog Hop

Welcome Rosies to the December Festive Elegance Blog Hop. This month's hop will Run from today, December 15th- Friday, December 21st at 12pm. There is a chance for you to win a $15 WRC Gift Card just for hoping along with us and leaving a comment at each stop along the way!
Have you seen our December Festive Elegance Subscription Kit? There are only a few left in stock, so don't miss out on a chance to own your own bit of Festive Winter Elegance. But did you know that with each of our kits, there is always an Kit Add-On section of the Store that compliments your Monthly Subscription Kit? And did you know you can get anything in that Kit Add-On section for 10% off!!!
The design team is playing around with the vast array of crafting supplies you can find in the December Kit Add-Ons for this hop. So prepare yourself for all the fun and the very cool line up of projects we've created.
The Heffy Doodle stamp set called "Warm Hugs" was my starting point for this card. I thought the characters and all of their accessories were very cute, and I love that they have an igloo. I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Markers, and then I fussy cut them out. There are a lot more images than what I have used here, but I didn't think that this particular card needed more.

I wanted to have the characters standing on snow. But not just flat white snow. Beautiful, glittery mounds of snow. So I used Lawn Fawn's Sparkle Cardstock in Pixie Dust. I love the texture of not only the front of this cardstock, but the back as well. And it cuts like butter. For my sky, I applied Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks with a cosmetic sponge. My sentiment is from the Warm Hugs stamp set, and I inked that Tumbled Glass Distress Ink as well. I added a few stars from the Bubblegum Ice Sparkle Blend. Everything was glued down with Glossy Accents, as it's tough to use regular dry adhesive on glitter paper. My card base is made out of gray 110 lb. cardstock.

Almost all of the products that I used on my card today are on sale in the December Kit Add-Ons section. You can get 10% off anything in that category, and there are over 25 pages of products! Please be sure to visit the rest of the team; their blogs are all listed below. 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

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 "
