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!

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…
