Featured Design Team Series: 14 Christmas Cards, 3 Decoupage Sheets by Amber MacMurtry

Happy Holidays Rosies, Amber here, and I'm taking over the blog today to share 14 (yes, you read that right) cards with you! 

Although Christmas 2018 has officially passed, I'm still feeling in the holiday spirit--Plus, I still had 3 Holiday themed pop-out decoupage sheets by Craft Creations UK left from my last White Rose Crafts Design Team package. 

I decided to get a head start on my personal challenge to create one Christmas card per week during 2019 and create as many cards as possible using them. I had intentionally selected sheets with several small images, so I could get the most bang for my buck, and let me tell you--3 hours and 14 cute cards with tons of dimension later, I couldn't be happier! 

The Craft Creations decoupage sheets are literally idiot proof--everything that goes together is labeled together. Not to mention, if I'd wanted to, I could have even split up each of the elements of the doggies and kitties to create another 8 cards with less dimension, so the value of these sheets is really incredible! If you're looking to make some quick holiday cards, make sure you check out Christmas Doggie Mix, Christmas Kitty Mix, & Santa Selection!

Supplies: Craft Creations Christmas Doggie Mix decoupage sheet, Echo Park I Love Christmas & American Crafts Merry Christmas paper packs (both sold out) , White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops, Red Berry Nuvo DropsCrystal Dovecraft Glitter Glue, Woodware UK 1mm Foam Mounting Tape, & 6mm Double Sided Sticky Tape.

I hope you've found some inspiration in my projects today! I really enjoyed putting these together and LOVE that I was able to use up some of my Christmas Paper stash (to make room for some new selections, of course!) All 14 of these cards took about 3 hours to put together, assembly line style, and that was with a 3.5 year old buzzing around trying to get attention and my special needs 4 year old still getting over a cold--so probably less time if you could be completely focused on the task! I love that I already have 14 cards ready to go for next year, and 2019 hasn't even started yet!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Have an AMAZING New Year!


Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting!

Hey Rosies.  It's design Team Member, Anna-Marie Batz, just sneaking onto the White Rose Crafts Blog to share with you my Festive Elegance card creation featuring Lawn Fawn Winter Penguin stamp set, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Winter, inks, embellishments and tools offered at White Rose Crafts online shop in honor of the....

 December Festive Elegance Blog Hop.  
This month's hop will Run from today, December 15th- Friday, December 21st at 12pm.  

If you are not familiar with blog hops, it’s fun and easy way to see what the Rosie Design Team is creating!  Simply click on the first name in the list below to visit our Design Team.  Each blog will have the same list of links on their blogs and you just follow them in order to go to the next blog!

And to make it more fun there is a chance for you to win a $15 WRC Gift Card just for hoping along with us and leaving a comment at each stop along the way!  
The Hop will run all week until Friday December 21st at 12pm EST.  Once the hop has closed, we will randomly pick a winner, who will be announced on the evening of the 21st right here on the WRC blog!

Have you seen our December Festive Elegance Subscription Kit?  There are only a few left in stock, so don't miss out on a chance to own your own bit of Festive Winter Elegance.  But did you know that with each of our kits, there is always an Kit Add-On section of the Store that compliments your Monthly Subscription Kit?  And did you know you can get anything in that Kit Add-On section for 10% off!!!

Today our design team is playing around with the vast array of crafting supplies you can find in the  December Kit Add-Ons.  So prepare yourself for all the fun and the very cool line up of projects our team has prepared for you.

I first used Distress Oxide Ink in broken china and random stamped the two snowflake stamps that are part of the cute Winter Penguin Stamp Set lawn fawn set all over the top part of the card base.  Then I stamped the sentiment happy holidays, also included in the Lawn Fawn Winter Penguin stamp set, usingTuxedo Black Ink.  I cut a piece of the pretty Lawn Fawn Plaid Winter Paper Pack to 2 3/4 inch by 5.5 to fit my card base and adhered it.  Then I cut a 5.5 inch piece of the American Crafts Dollar Ribbon Ivory Glitter, which I feel looks just like sparkly snow, and adhered that to the card base that was previously randomly snow flaked stamped with a little bit of it overflowing onto the plaid paper.

I used the matching Winter Penguin Die for the winter penguin to cut a stamped penguin out.  Once I colored him - -I adhered him usingAdhesive Mounting Foam Tape to give the card some dimension. To finish the look I used a Tsukineko Spounge Dauber and the Distress Oxide in Broken China to distress around the edges of the entire card and added a white Bumper Buttons at the one end of the glitter ribbon.

Whola Easy Peasy cute creation and all thanks to the supplies available at White Rose Crafts!!!
