WRC May Blog Hop

Hello! It's time for the White Rose Crafts "Barista Blend" Blog Hop. The Kit has actually sold out, although there is a chance for you to get one if you purchase a multi-kit subscription. For the hop, the Design Team is featuring some of the "Add-On" items that are available at White Rose Crafts. These are specially selected items that work beautifully with the kit, but also are terrific on their own. The best part? All of the Kit Add-Ons are on sale for 10% off if you use the code: "MAY ADD-ONS." This hop will run from May 13th through May 17th at noon EST. There is a chance for you to win a $15 WRC Gift Card just for hopping along with us and leaving a comment at each stop along the way! And as an added bonus, do you want your work to be featured on our blog when we announce our hop winner. Share your White Rose Crafts projects over on our Facebook Gallery, and you might just be a featured project! Here's my card for the hop:
I chose to work with the Little Acres stamp set that's called, "Cafe Dreamers." It's a sweet little set with mice, sentiments, and tiny images. I kept my card pretty simple and went with one focal image and a little heart. I colored it all in with Zig Clean Color Markers.
Everything was stamped with VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne. I chose my Zig colors based on the paper I used from Echo Park's "Coffee" paper pad. I have used this paper pad so much since I've gotten it, which was actually before this kit came out. It's just full of great patterns.
I used a few sequins from the "Gingerbread Man" Sparkle Blend, which I adhered with On Point Glue. I inked up my card base with Tea Dye Distress Oxide. It was the perfect color to go with everything else on the card.

Get ready to see some wonderful project from the Design Team. When you're done hopping, head back to the WRC Blog to let us know what add-on item you'd be most excited to play with. Your next stop in the hop is to head back to the White Rose Crafts Blog. Below is the full hop list. Be sure to also hit the WRC Store to check out all the add-ons, and all of the other wonderful items Kay has in the shop. You can use my code: "Alison 15" to save 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…
