3 Cards One Kit with White Rose Crafts LLC

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with 3 cards for you today.

I wanted to show how versatile the White Rose Crafts kits are that I created 3 cards one a bit more detailed than the next. So, no matter what level card maker you are you can definitely create plenty of cards from the kits.

I am using the  March "Blue Skies" Subscription Kit This kit is beautiful - it has shades of blue, rich gold, butterflies, uplifting quotes and a fantastic paper and stamp by Kaisercrafts.

Card 1. Do Small Things With Great LOVE
For this card I kept it simple. I used a pattern paper (the stripes) from the kit, another pattern specialty paper from the add-on section(yellow with gold foil) and a cut apart from the large Blue Moon paper from the kit. A small piece of the gold specialty paper that come in the kit to mat the main sentiment. Along with blue cardstock from my stash. I add 2 flowers as embellishments. I added a bit of glitz to the word LOVE with Wink of Stella pen and a bit of gold to the center of the flower with a Gelly Roll Gold Gel pen.

Card. 2 - Escape the Ordinary
This may seem like a complicated card but it's actually easy because Kay has included a pre-scored, pre-die cut card and the matching shaker holder in the kit. I simply cover the front of the card. Cut away the cloud shape to fit the shaker holder. Filled the holder with some of the Sparkle Blends - Sunny Skies from the kit. Seal the back up with a piece of paper now the shaker is complete. I embellish the card with a few strips of the pattern paper from the kit (this paper contains several phrases and patterns like washi tape). I added a blue flower from the kit. 

Card 3. Your Wings Already Exist All You Have To Do Is Fly
For this card, I again used one of the cut apart from the large Blue Moon paper. I matted it onto light green cardstock. I cut my card front panel 4" X 5-1/4" I then adhered 2 strips of ribbon from my stash that coordinated with the kit in a diagonal.  Then I matted the white panel onto dark blue cardstock. Next, I adhered using foam adhesive the sentiment. For the embellishments, I used the Silver Peel off Butterflies from the Add-on sections and place them onto some of the beautiful light green Mulberry paper. I trimmed away any of the extras I didn't want. I kept the little silver flowers to add to the card. I then adhered them using a bit of foam tape to the card front panel.

There's still so much left from the March Blue Skies Kit - I have already created 6 cards and I can easily create another 6 more. Kay of White Rose Crafts LLC really packs these kits.

All the Supplies Used:
Ingio Skies Pattern Papers, Gold cardstock, 
Sparkle Blends - Sunny Skies & Flowers

Friendship Card with Dies R Us

Hello Crafty Friends - I have a cute card for you today.

This card came together rather quickly. I started by stamping my images and gathering my dies. I did this to be sure that my dies would fit around my images and my card. I had the idea in my head so I was really hoping that everything would fit. Gladly it did.

Next, I ran the Honeycomb die using an embossing mat through my die cutting machine with medium yellow cardstock. I wanted the embossed look not to cut all the way through. Then, I used the hexagon dies in the two sizes I want and cut them from the honeycomb background. I set them to the side to color my image.

Once, I had my image colored I wanted the cool honeycomb background to show behind the bear and bee so I trimmed away the area behind them. *note: you can use scissors for this part - I just used my craft knife. I also trimmed my card front panels the white cardstock measures 4" X 5-1/4" and the medium gray is 4-1/4" x 51/2" (same as my card base).

Next, I adhered the card front to the mat and then the hexagons. The larger one for the image and smaller one for the sentiment; which are mounted onto low profile foam adhesive. 

Then, I added a few confetti sequins and flower sequins. to the center of the flowers, I added a tim=ny black heart.  I also added a few dots of metallic gold gel pen to the image flowers and some white highlights to the bee and bear. 

Supplies Used:

Embossing Mat (They are available for Sizzix too)

Darice Stamps - Bee Holder
Memento Ink & Marker in Tuxedo Black 
Copic Markers: C1, C2, C3, B00, BV17

Celebrate Everyday Card with A2Z Scrapbooking

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a simple card featuring
image 0
I created a card using the open Tulip from the Hero Arts Digital Stamps Poetic Petals  I printed it out on the larger size so to take up the front of my card.
Since this month's challenge is Color It. I figured I would show you the coloring. Usually, don't. I started with the stem of the tulip. Colored it with shades of green. Next, I did the base of the tulip in shades of orange. Then, I blended some shades of yellows on the top of the tulip.
Next, I fussy cut the tulip out and added some foam adhesive behind the tulip. I added it to a 4-1/4" X 5-1/2" piece of black cardstock. I then stamped my sentiment from Hero Arts CL498 Celebrate Stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Gold powder. I Next, I added a few confetti sequins for finishing touch along with some metallic gold gel pen detailing in the center of the tulip.

You're Super Sweet Card with Doodles Paper Playground

Hello Crafty Friends -  I am here with a fun shaker card featuring the Sweet Treats Sparkle Blends

This card is full of sweet treat inside and out. I created a mini bag full of candy treats.

A pastel blend of sprinkle shaped beads,
artificial Fimo sprinkles, hearts, stars, 
cup sequins, iridescent crystals and 
cupcake & ice cream cone shaped Fimo shapes
is a fun addition to any birthday card or project!

Here's my card with the Sparkle Blends at the bottom of the mini treat bag. 

Showing the Sparkle Blends

So, let's get started on the card.

First, I stamped and colored the images from Skull and Cross Buns Retro Sweeties Stamp set. 
Then, die cut a window in my mini treat bag using a small square die. 
I added a piece of chipboard inside of the bag so not to cut through the bag.

Next, I adhered clear plastic to the die cut square. 
I used a piece of packaging, slid it into the bag and glue it in place.

Then, I adhered some of the little Retro Candy stamped images to the inside of the mini bag. Next, I fill the bag with the Sparkle Blends: Sweet Treat and I added a bit of Recollections Brand Glitz glitter. Seal up the mini treat bag.

Then, I matted white cardstock onto medium purple cardstock for my card front. I adhered the mini treat bag to the card front and embellished with the rest of the colored images. I stamped sentiment onto white cardstock and colored the word SWEET with some Distress Markers and matted it onto black cardstock. Then, I adhered the sentiment on foam adhesive.

 Now the card is complete! 

This is a fun and colorful card perfect for your sweetie, a child and a friend.

Distress Markers: Ripe Persimmon, Tumbled Glass,
Mustard Seed, Seedless Preserves & Mowed Lawn
