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!

April Sparkle Blends Release Hop

Hello! Welcome back! And if you're new here, my name is Alison, and I appreciate you visiting me. Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha.
My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "thank…

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.

So &quo…
