January WRC Sketch Challenge

Greetings! Today I am sharing a card that uses the January Sketch Challenge from White Rose CraftsThe January Sketch Challenge is open from January 1st to January 25th. Limit maximum 3 entries per person. We will randomly pick one participant to receive a $15 White Rose Crafts e-gift card. Please feature something sold on the WRC store site in your project. If you're not sure if you have something... take a look in the shop... you may be surprised. https://whiterosecraftsllc.com/. Then, you can upload your project to the WRC Fan Page on Facebook HERE.
Here's my take.

I started off with the Craft Creations Die Cut Decoupage sheet called "Goldfinch in Cherry Blossom." There are so many wonderful images that you can layer or keep separate. I will be able to make several more cards out of that 1 sheet. Anyway, the square image of the goldfinch was perfect as a jumping off point for the sketch. For the other 2 squares, I used a piece of Metallic cardstock in Mountain Rose (it is so shimmery in person!) and a piece of green plaid cardstock from Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Petite Paper Pack. The sparkly strip uses Lawn Fawn's Pixie Dust Sparkle Cardstock and a piece of forest green cardstock from my stash.

My background was created directly on my white card base using Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Twisted Citron, and Antique Linen. I took all 4 colors and rubbed them on to my craft mat, sprayed them with water, and dipped my card base into the colors. I did this a few times, drying the ink layers each time with my heat gun before dipping it in again.
I added a piece of American Crafts ribbon, a heart from the Goldfinch decoupage sheet, and some "Bells are Ringing" Sparkle Blend.

This was a fun sketch to work with, and I hope you'll join in! Remember to add your photo to the album I linked at the top of this post. And be sure to visit the White Rose Crafts LLC shop, a/s there is still a BIG sale going on (through 1/8/2019) ! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
