Today our design team is playing around with the vast array of crafting supplies you can find in the March Kit Add-On.  So prepare yourself for all the fun and the very cool line up of projects our team has prepared for you.
My card for today is a Reveal Wheel card that features a very happy little dragon. I know how he feels. I love me some cake too. White Rose Crafts recently got in some beautiful new mulberry paper, along with these adorable "Dragon Tails Odds & Ends" from Doodlebug. That's where this little dino comes from. I used a piece of the blue mulberry paper to coordinate with my hungry dragon, and decided to emboss a piece of olive green cardstock with the "All Star Boy" embossing folder. 
I opted to make this a Reveal Wheel card because I love the interactive quality of them, and the option to have several sentiments in one card. The main Reveal Wheel dies are on their way back into the shop, but the sentiments and some of the add-on dies are currently available. I kept all of the Reveal Wheel components bright white to go with the outer edge of the dragon. 
I wanted a bit more dimension and a little shine, so I grabbed the Midnight Blue Nuvo Drops and added them all over the front of my card. They look black in the photos, but I assure you, they are a dark blue and look great in person. By the way, you can see each of the Reveal Wheel sentiments I chose in each of my photos. 
That's it for me today folks! Your next stop on the hop is my friend EK. But, if you've missed any stops along the way, you can check out the full hop list below. Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop for your chance to win a gift certificate to White Rose Crafts. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

Hello! This is an exciting post for me because I am part of a 2 week "Earth Day" blog hop between Stampendous and Arnold Grummer. If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
