Happy New Year from WRC!

Happy New Year! I enjoyed 2018 for the most part, but I am looking forward to starting a new year. I am hoping for a few big changes this year, how about you? Today, the White Rose Crafts team wants to wish all of the "Rosies," as you fans are affectionately called, a Happy 2019 by posting some New Year's creations. And to add to the celebration, White Rose Crafts is running a New Year Special from January 1st through January 8th. You can get 25% off site-wide using the code "CRAFTY NEW YEAR."

Here is my card using the Snowman Family stamp from Wild Rose Studio. I really like using snowmen in the first few months of the year. They work great for holiday cards, but I use them often for winter cards too.

I colored the Snowman Family with Tombow Dual Brush Markers and a Wink of Stella pen for some sparkle.

I also added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink around the edges, to mimic my bottom layer. That bottom layer is from LemonCraft's Daydream paper collection. It has a soft, wintry feel that I thought was just right for this card.

I needed a little more shine, so I added a few sequins from the Doodles Paper Playground Icicle Sparkle Blend. I adhered them with On Point Glue from Imagine. It turned out to be a sweet little card that's perfect to send to anyone that you didn't have a chance to send a holiday card to. And goodness knows I have a number of those!

Please be sure to visit the White Rose Crafts Blog to see other New Year's projects and get the full scoop on the sale. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images. I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set  and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder. I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes
