Find Joy in the Journey - Graphic 45

Welcome Back! Today I'm sharing another Girl Scout layout. "Find Joy in the Journey" a Cookie prize layout. I used my goodies from White Rose Crafts to create this layout. Graphic 45 - Kaleidoscope collection is simply BEAUTIFUL! I mean it! the colors are just wonderful.

I also incorporated Mulberry and Foiled paper both of which White Rose Crafts carries! They are so fun to incorporate into projects to add texture and dimension to layouts.

Angels Descending

Well, there is just one more sleep till Christmas Day, so it seemed only fitting for my project today to feature an Angel who could and would watch over a new born king. I thought this angel from Woodware UK Angel Voices stamp set was perfect to watch over a sleeping child.

I started by stamping out the Angel Voices main image onto some white cardstock with Memento Dye Ink in Tuxedo Black.

I colored the images with Nuvo Creative Pens. I used a combination of Depth & Shadow, Fair Skin Tones, Hazy Mauves, Emerald Seas, Rich Reds, and Pebble Beach. I then fussy cut out the image.

To construct the card frame, I pulled a collection of papers from the Wild Rose Studio Antique Library paper pack. I then trimmed them up to different sizes. Adhere the papers to an A2 card frame.

I then stamped a sentiment from the Angel Voices stamp set onto the card frame in both brown and black ink.

I stamped background images onto the card frame using images from the Angel Voices stamp set in both black and brown ink.

Finally I added drops to the card frame from both Dovecraft Glitter Glue in Blossom and Nuvo Craft Drops in Antique Rose.

As we wait till the last sleep before Christmas, I wish upon you Peace & Love, blessing of healing, and of course a Merry Christmas.

What is your Christmas Wish this year? Let me know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting!

Miss You

 Hello! Alison here. Today I am sharing a project I made for the White Rose Crafts shop. I got to play with a bunch of fun things to create a mixed media card. Take a look.

I really wanted to use some of the images in the Steampunk Alchemist stamp set from AALL & Create that I haven't really worked with yet. That skull image was at the top of my list. I've been going through a lot of my Gel Press monoprints lately to use some of them up (so that I can make more!), and I found one that I thought would work well. This one was a roll-off print that also picked up a bit of leftover paint from the Gel Press. I love the colors on it.

I stamped the skull with VersaFine Clair Ink in Twilight. Then I used regular VersaFine ink in Olympia Green to stamp the gears stamp a few times. I had a bit too much white space on the piece, so I broke out the Heapza Hexagonz stencil (I am crazy about hexagons!) and inked it with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. That filled in those areas nicely, so I moved on to my sentiment. I decided to use the Traceable Alphabet from Kelly Creates to make my sentiment, which I stamped with Imperial Purple VersaFine. My ivory card base was looking a little blah, so I grabbed the Heapza Hexagonz stencil again, and this time I inked the stencil directly with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide, spritzed it with water, and applied it to my base, around the edges. I love this reverse effect.

It's so easy to get a cool collage look when you combine stencils and stamps, especially the ones from AALL & Create. I love the vibe from them, and I am always happy with my results. And I think that using that pretty script font from Kelly Creates takes the "hardness" of the card down a notch. Please visit the White Rose Crafts shop to see the latest and greatest. And, hang out with us in the White Rose Crafts Gallery on FB! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Quick Holiday Tags

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_e1974.jpg

So I have realized I am seriously short gift tags this year, so I thought I would whip up a few quickly. I am just loving how the Woodware UK Cross Stitched Christmas stamp set from White Rose Crafts made creating these gift tags so quickly.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_e1970.jpg

I started by pulling out four gift tags, and stamping each of the four images onto the tag using Distress Oxide. For the Tree I used Bundled Sage. The stocking got a dabbing of Stormy Sky. The heart was stamped with Abandoned Coral and for the reindeer I used Brushed Corduroy.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_e1971.jpg

Then, using my stamping platform, I stamped the needle and thread and sentiment onto the tag using VersaFine Black Onyx. I did commit the crafting sin, and snipped the sentiment so I could put it on two lines. Totally worth it.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_e1972.jpg

I hand stamped a heart button onto each tag using Aged Mahogany.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_e1973.jpg

I added a trimmed piece of gold ribbon from the Scrapberry "Seaside" Ribbon collection. I also added a bit of a shadow to each heart button using a black pen.

I love how simple these were to create but how cute they turned out. I also adore the fact that since I snipped the sentiment I can use the heart and 'sew happy' sentiment all year long for all my embroidery friends! Let me know in the comments below how you would use this sewing theme stamp set. Until then, Happy Crafting.

Henry the Fox

Hey Rosies!  Design team member, Anna-Marie W. Batz here using a variety of paper crafting supplies available at White Rose Crafts LLC online shop to bring us this cute creation. 

Stamp sets used were from both Craft Consortium Henry Fox and Stampendous Laurel Burch Feline Blooms. They went so well with the Echo Park Fall is in the air 6 x 6 papers.  Of course Henry the Fox needed a little paper heart that was die cut from the Aspire Petallics Mountain Rose card stock after being stamped with Memento Black Tuxedo Ink and colored with the Nuvo Creative Pen Collection in Fragrant Oranges. The card was then accented with twine and daises to complete the cuteness!!! 

Why not check out the at wide variety of supplies that White Rose Crafts offers you to see what you can use in your Papercraft creations.   Happy Creating!!!

Make a Wish

Greetings! Alison here. Today I am sharing a new project for the White Rose Crafts Shop using a number of products they carry. I have mentioned before that AALL & Create has become one of my all-time favorite stamp companies, so I decided to make a card using some of their items. 

I am absolutely crazy about the 3 large light bulbs that are in the Steampunk Alchemist (#387) set. I have used them several times already, and I know that they will continue to be played with often. I really love coming up with different ways to color them. For this card, I went through my monoprints and found a roll-off print (simply a print that was made with the excess paint that was on my brayer) that had a nice range of colors and an area that looked like it was lit up. I trimmed it down to 4" x 5 1/4" and stenciled it with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and AALL & Create's Heapza Hexagonz (#112) stencil. On top of that, I stamped 2 of them smaller stamps that are in the Steampunk Alchemist stamp set around the edges in Onyx Black VersaFine Ink.

For the light bulb, I stamped it on to a piece of watercolor paper with VersaMark Ink and embossed it with a detail black powder. Then I sprinkled on a bit of lavender and turquoise Brusho crystals from Colourcraft, and spritzed them with water. These crystals activate with water and explode with color, so a little goes quite a long way. I helped move the color and dry the area a bit with my heat tool, being careful to not re-melt the embossing powder. When it was dry, I tore the edges and inked them with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink. I also inked my card base with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink, to make that turquoise Brusho pop. Last, I added the tine "Make a Wish" sentiment from the AALL & Create Poppies (#207) stamp set.

This is a great card for many occasions, in my opinion, and it's great for a masculine card. I love combining monoprints with stamps and stencils, though you could easily substitute the monoprint for patterned paper. White Rose Crafts has lots to choose from! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

A Heartfelt Christmas

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_e1870.jpg

Hey Everyone! It's EK, and today I have a question for you. Do you have the same problem I do this time of year...? You want to make Christmas cards but you also have lots of Black Friday purchases that are not Christmas themed and want to play with those too. That was exactly where I was today as I sat down to make this card. So today I am playing with both everyday stencils and stamps and a Christmas stamp to create this fun card.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1793.jpg

I started by building my background using both the AALL & Create Cracked Walls 1 and Cracked Walls 2 stencils from White Rose Crafts onto watercolor paper.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1795.jpg

The first layer was colored in Fired Brick and the second layer in Aged Mahogany Distress Oxides. For this blending I used the Ranger Blending Tool.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1796.jpg

I then stamped the AALL & Create Squeaky Friends stamp set onto some heavy cardstock. I colored in the image using the Nuvo Creative Pens in Stormy Greys. I then fussy cut out the image leaving a little of the floor for the squirrels to stand on.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1797.jpg

I trimmed up the ink cardstock and added it to an A2 card frame. Then using the VersaFine Onyx Black ink, I stamp the Christmas Tree image from the Whimsical Christmas stamp set.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1798.jpg

I adhered the squirrels onto the card frame and then decorated the trees with a series of Nuvo Drops. I used Autumn Red and Woodland Green for the ornaments. For the snow stars I used a little Sea Breeze and the large hearts and stars were accented with White Blizzard.

Finally, I added a sentiment to the top of the card using some Pine Needles Distress Oxides.

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I created this slightly different approach to a Christmas Card. I really think these squirrels now look like the were meant to be decorating the tree. I really can't wait to find out what other trouble I can get the Squeaky Friends into later. If you have any suggestions, make sure you add it to the comments below.

Making him into Rudolph.
