Marvelous Men Cardmaking Kit

Marvelous Men Cardmaking 1

We are so excited to announce something we think is really exciting!!!  

Today we are releasing a new stand alone Crafting Kit designed specifically with masculine cards in mind.  It is the one thing we hear crafters say over and over again...masculine cards are hard.  

So we have designed a kit to take out some of the challenge!

The new "Marvelous Men Cardmaking Kit" is a stand alone kit, so if you are a subscriber to the WRC Subscription Kits you will not be automatically receiving this one!  However, the kit went live in the shop and is available for purchase right now!

Design Team Member EK has unboxed her Marvelous Men Cadmaking Kit to share all the goodies inside, so make sure you pop over and check out all the masculine card making goodness.

Like other kits at WRC, DT member EK will be creating a series of Five Fast cards where she shares quick and easy to craft cards you can make using the products inside the kit over the next few weeks.  So stay tuned for all the fun things you can create with the kit.

But remember this is a limited edition kit, and when it sells out, it will be sold out for good.  We know there were a lot of people who missed out on the "Barista Blend" Coffee themed kit because it sold out so fast, so do not miss out on your opportunity for this kit.

You are my Person

Hello! Alison here. I've got a new project for White Rose Crafts today. If you visited my blog yesterday, you may realize that this card uses the exact same color palette as yesterday's card, but the design is very different. I love these colors together, and I have been super inspired by Therm O Web's Rainbow Shattered Glass Deco Foil, so this card was inspired by that.
I started off with the Gina K Designs Sweet Expressions Foil Mates. These are black toner-printed sentiments that you run through a hot laminator with the Deco Foil of your choosing. It's a very quick process with very impactful results.
Here you can really see the vibrant colors of the foil. I matted the sentiment with some deep purple cardstock. For my background, I used the Argyle Embossing Folder from Darice, but with a letterpress feel. I inked one side of the folder with Broken ChinaWilted VioletWorn Lipstick, and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide before I ran it through my die cut machine. I was careful to not have any gaps between colors, but to also not contaminate any of my ink pads with the color next to it. If that happens, you can quickly wipe off the pad with a paper towel or cloth to keep the "wrong" color from seeping into the pad. I spritzed my cardstock with a little water because it's a heavy 110 lbs, and that keeps it from cracking in the folder. This also helped to blend the colors a little while it passed though my die cut machine.
I mounted the panel on to a white top folding card and added a few assorted sequins from various Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground that were adhered with On Point Glue. The photo below is a little blown out so that you could really see the amazing colors from the Deco Foil. It's even more amazing in person.
I love using embossing folders for backgrounds, and Foil Mates make for quick work of finishing off cards. If you eliminate the time you need to heat up your laminator, you could probably complete this card in well under 15 minutes. That's a win in my book! Please be sure to visit White Rose Crafts to check out many of the products I used today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

3 Cards 1 Kit by Annie

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a long post for 3 cards.

However, these cards came together rather quickly because I used the cut a part sheet from the Echo Park Coffee Collection that is part of the Barista Blend Kit. Now, This kit is sold out - but, Kay does have the Echo Park Coffee Collection 6 x 6 Pad available in the shop.

Card # 1 - Today's Plan? Dink Coffee & Be Awesome! - quick and easy.

I gathered the supplies - I trimmed my card front panels. Coffee for the base and Cream for the top layer. Next, I trimmed the pattern coffee paper so I had the corners of the paper. I trimmed a layer of kraft cardstock to mat the pattern paper. I die cut pink cardstock for a mat for the sentiment which is one of the cut a parts. Along with some embellishments.
Then, I adhered the Cream layer to the Coffee panel, Next, I adhered the pattern paper to the kraft mats. Then, I adhered the pattern paper layer to the card front panel.
Next, I adhered the sentiment to the pink cardstock. Then, onto the card front panel. Finally, I added a few embellishments. A small coffee cup paper clip and a few of the Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends: Caffeinated. I adhere my card front panel to my card base.

Now, the card is complete!

Card # 2 - Coffee - a few more layers.

I gathered the supplies - I trimmed my card front panels. Coffee for the base and Tan for the top layer. Next, I die cut a circle from the floral pattern paper.  I trimmed a strip of the pink X pattern paper. I cut a rectangle piece of medium brown cardstock to mat the sentiment which is one of the cut a parts.
 Along with some embellishments.

Then, I adhered the Tan layer to the Coffee panel.
 Next, I adhered the floral pattern paper circle to the card front panel. 

Then, I trimmed the washi tape in half and placed onto the card front panel.
** Tip: I stick my washi tape onto the backing that you remove from tape or foam squares
 so I can trim it or punch shapes from it.  

Next, I place the washi tape onto the card front panel about the distance of my pattern paper strip. I then adhered my pattern paper strip. Then. I adhered the sentiment onto brown cardstock and popped it up on foam square for dimension.

Then, I added a few embellishments to the card front panel. I used one of the pink Mulberry Hearts from the kit and a few sequins for the Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends: Caffeinated. I added a bit of low profile foam adhesive to the Mulberry Heart.
I adhered the card front panel to my card base and my card is complete!

Card # 3 -  You're As Sweet as CowfeAu Lait.  The most layers and steps.
I gathered the supplies - I trimmed my card front panels. Black cards stock for the base and Tan for the top layer. Next, I die cut a circle from the Mulberry paper and a Flower shape from the pink paper.  I trimmed strips of the pink & red check pattern paper, the Floral pattern paper and the black and white coffee cup pattern paper. I die cut the Floral pattern paper with a border Scalloped die. 
I trimmed a rectangle piece of black cardstock to mat the coffee bean pattern paper & the sentiment.
I stamped the image and the sentiment. I colored the image with Prisma color pencils. I then trimmed my image into a circle.
 Along with some embellishments.
Then, I adhered the Tan layer to the black panel.
 Next, I adhered the strips pattern papers to the card front panel. Slightly overlapping them.

Then, I matted the coffee bean pattern paper onto the black cardstock and adhered it onto the card front panel.

Next, I inked the edge of the image circle with a bit of Distress Oxide ink: Vintage Photo.

Then, I adhered the flower die cut shape onto the card front panel and then the mulberry paper circle. Next, I added a bit of foam tape to the back of the cow image and placed it just to the right of the mulberry paper.

Next, I Trimmed the Mulberry Heart a bit because I felt they were too large for the space. I went old school here and just folded the hearts in half then cut a heart shape.


I will save the outer heart section for another project.

Then, I adhered the hearts on top of one another. Using a bit of foam adhesive on the top one. I added a sequin from the Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends: Caffeinated mix. 

Finally, I added the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and fishtailed the end. Popped it up with some foam tape and added it onto the card front panel. I adhered the card front panel onto the card base and my card is complete!

Shabby Chic Paris Note Card by Kim

Good morning friends, Kim here with my next DT project for White Rose Crafts!
This time I have made a pretty shabby chic and Parisian inspired card for a friend.
I started off with the Neenah A2 Cards and Envelopes set in Parchment for my base.

For the background, I used the Letters from Paris paper stack from Wild Rose Studios. I love this paper, it's just gorgeous with the pink roses and scripty writing and who doesn't love a pink Eiffel Tower?

I also used some of the pink Recollections flowers and one of the Melissa Frances chipboard buttons as an embellishment.

I also dipped into my White Rose Crafts lace stash and used the heart lace and the white scallop lace on the card. The heart Bling Buckle Slider was perfect on this card too!

I also did some sewing on my card and used pink embroidery thread in the bobbin on my sewing machine to give this cool texture to my card.

I hope you like my card and will check out all the amazing goodies I used from the White
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration here today!
