Barista Blend Kit

Greetings! This week, the White Rose Crafts team is sharing projects using the May Subscription Kit called "Barista Blend." This is for all of you coffee lovers out there! There is a cute stamp set from Little Acres, fantastic papers from Echo Park, and exclusive Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground, and plenty more. The kit is currently available on pre-order, so if you want it, grab it while you can!
This cow is happily about to start a cup of "cowfee" and would like you to join her! I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Markers, and I added Nuvo Drops in Sea Breeze to her spectacles to make them look glassy. I inked the edges of the stamped panel with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide.
I used a couple of pieces of patterned paper from the Echo Park "Coffee" collection to mat my image, and I backed it all with a cream card base from my own stash, which I inked with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide. I also added a few sequins from the older "But First, Coffee" Sparkle Blend. I do not have the Blend that comes in the Subscription Kit, but this was a perfect substitute. All the sequins was adhered with On Point Glue from Imagine.
My favorite thing about this kit is the paper from Echo Park. It has so many great colors, and wonderful patterns that go beyond the coffee theme. So don't think you can only use it for that! There are some really beautiful florals and more abstract patterns that I really love.
Please be sure to head over to the White Rose Crafts Blog to see more creations using this caffeinated kit. And then, hit the White Rose Crafts LLC Shop to snag your Subscription Box before it sells out. You can use the code "Alison 15" to get 15% off of your purchase! 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

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
