Sun Kissed with Guest Designer Laura

Good morning!
I want to introduce myself.  I am Laura Gilhuly and I am excited and thrilled to be guest designing for White Rose Crafts this month! 

The first project I am going to share is made using the fabulous  

I absolutely love the colors in this collection and seeing how the beach is my happy place it was perfect!

I fussy cut the flower image with the title, turtles, sand dollars and starfish from some of the papers.  I also lightly misted a doily I had in my stash orange to highlight the photo of our youngest!

I love dimension so for the turtles, starfish and sand dollars I used my large ball stylus to 'puff' parts of the animals!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Carved Out Time with Guest Designer Meghan

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's Meghan and I'm back with my second post as a Guest Designer for White Rose Crafts for September. If you missed, my first post, it was a card for the September Sketch Challenge, check it out here and join in the fun for your chance to win $15 to the store. 

For today's card I decided to have fun with the theme this month which is Falling int Fall. These darling little squirrels are getting into some mischief with pumpkins.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do squirrels get into your pumpkins around Halloween?
A: Me? NO! Surprisingly not, I think my little pup has something to do with that, she's got a loud bark.

I started my card by die cutting the kraft paper frame and the rectangle orange patterned paper square.

Next I die cut the birch tree branches and adhered them to my orange rectangle.

I created a little scene on the orange square then I put foam tape around the kraft paper so that it makes a shadow box like frame for my critters.

I finished my card by stamping the sentiment on the outside and framing the sentiment on the inside to match!

I hope you enjoyed my little Falling into Fall Themed scene. Please follow my on Instagram here and comment, subscribe, and follow for your chance to win my September Giveaway (see right side).

Shabby Opera Beauties Paper Clips By Kim Fuller

Good morning friends, Kim here with my next DT Project for White Rose Crafts.
This time I have altered some large paper clips that were sent to me by a friend. I just loved them and wanted to use lots of fun WRC goodies to alter them.

I started off with the Juliet Paper from Scrapberry . I love this paper its so pretty and shabby and has lots of little images that work great for altering this type of thing.

I layered the paper first and added some laces to soften them.

I added some Recollections flowers to add some pink prettiness to them as well.

My last step was to add some Dovecraft Glitter glue to the frames to make them sparkle!

I love how they came out and I will be adding them to an upcoming journal soon.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration here.

Thank You for Being So Amazing Card

Let's Get started!

I start by gathering the components for the card. I trimmed the green gingham pattern paper to 3", the rose pattern to 1-1/4", I also trimmed a piece of Aspire Petallics Autumn Hay cardstock to 1". I die cut flowers from watercolor paper 5x, (I cut some of the leaves off for extra layering) and a card front panel from white cardstock. I pulled a few embellishments as well- washi, rhinestone flowers, puffy hearts and more (note - I didn't use all the embellishments I pulled - Yes, I am an overpuller 😉)

I used the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Tattered Rose (from the Kit), Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Worn Lipstick, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Bundled Sage & Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Peeled Paint. I added a bit of water to the ink I smudged on my craft mat. I then used a paintbrush and colored the flowers and stems. On 2 of the flowers, I took out the little pieces, but on one of the flowers, I left all the pieces in - that is where I used the Worn Lipstick & Peeled paint to create some contrast and dimension. I set them aside to dry. 

Next, I start to assemble the card. I adhered the green pattern paper first, then the rose pattern paper. Then, I put a strip of gold washi onto the Aspire Autumn Hay Petallics cardstock.  Next, I placed the Aspire Autumn Hay Petallics cardstock on top of the seam of the two pattern papers.

Then, I gathered the dried flowers and adhere them to the front of the card. I place the two flowers that I removed the bits from down first. I then add a bit of foam adhesive to the flower with all the bit in and place it on top of the other flowers. arranging them to the left of the card. I tucked the extra leaves in under the flowers.

Next, I decide on the rhinestone flowers (from the kit) and some puffy hearts for embellishments. I added 3 of the rhinestone flowers on the watercolored flowers. I then added 2 tiny puffy gold hearts by the flowers.


Finally, I adhered the sentiment (from the kit) using a bit of foam. I add a tiny gold puffy heart onto the sentiment.

That's it the card is complete.
