Love You Card with Doodles Paper Playground

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here today sharing a Love card with a spring twist. 

Sometimes you just need to let someone in your life how much you love them. Perhaps they are going through a tough time or just need to know they are loved.

I created this card using the Sparkle Blends: Cozy and Sparkle Blends: Spring Fling. I like to combine my blends from time to time.

Image may contain: food
This desaturated blend of eggplant, teal, champagne, lavender,
hunter green & red has the perfect cold weather vibe.
Mainly a base of matte & satin sequins, with just the right
touch of glitter and iridescence.

With a beautiful base of pastel pink, lavender, pink,
 light gold and blue metallic cup sequins, and 
a generous amount of tiny pastel heart confetti, 
Spring Fling is perfect for all your Spring (or wedding/engagement/new baby!)
 projects - especially in the light of the pretty touch of 
whimsy we're incorporated by the addition of 
pastel colored butterflies and faceted crystals. 

I created this shaker card with both blends. I stamped and colored the images in soft colors. I then die cut the word from white cardstock and used a bit of Distress Oxide in Shaded Lilac only on the bottom of the letters. I also punch three tiny white flowers from the remaining white cardstock and add some Nuvo Drops to the center of them. I also add some Nuvo the stamped flowers.

I did some finishing touches with some Wink of Stella in Clear and a bit of detail dots in Gelly Roll pen Metallic gold.

Supplies Used:
Word Die Cuts: MFT
 Stamps by Chloe -Fancy Foliage: Bird & Flowers
Punch: EK Success - Tiny Flower

Happy Easter Cards with White Rose Crafts LLC

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with 2 Cards 1 stamp set. 

I wanted to create one playful card and one more grown-up card.

Card 1- I used the bunny, small basket, the small chick in egg and the tulip. I used some the Green Mulberry paper for my grass. I stamped one of the sentiments from the set. 

 Card 2 - I stamped the bunny in the basket and the small cluster of eggs. I backed the stamped and colored images onto the Craft Creations White & Gold Foiled pattern paper. I used the

HI - Floral Shaker Card with Doodles Paper Playground

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a fun Spring shaker card perfect to send to anyone.

With a few simple die cuts, you can easily create multiples of this card. I used 2 Sparkle Blends for the shaker - Sparkle Blends: Flower Power & Sparkle Blends: Flaming Sunset

No photo description available.
For a floral fanatic, this blend is perfect!  Flowers in this bright, happy blend! 
 Flower styles range from simple daisies to Fimo slices and holographic blooms.

Image may contain: food
The beautiful hues of red, yellow, orange and gold sequins, crystals, 
seed beads, and colorful spheres gives this blend just the right tone.

So, Let's get started!

I gathered my supplies. Then, I die cut the word HI using my big letters from heavyweight white cardstock and some flowers from glitter cardstock and vellum.

Next, I used some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Spray in Spiced Marmalade and Some TH Distress Oxide Ink in Squeezed Lemonade on the card front panel that I die cut my greeting from. I set it aside to dry.

Then, I worked on the flowers. I added a bit of liquid glue to the center of the vellum flowers and added the glitter flowers on top. I then curled the petals a bit for some dimension.  

Now, that the front panel is dry; I turn it over and adhere some clear packaging (you can use acetate) to the back. I then add some foam adhesive all over the back of the front panel - expect where the greeting is. Next, I add a mix of the Sparkle Blends into the open area. Add the Light Orange cardstock backing to the panel.

Now, adhere the flowers to the front panel. I added some Sparkle Blends to the center of the flowers for a finishing touch.

Now, the card is complete!

Hello Card with Dies R Us

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a really quick card for you.

I did some simple inlay work on the sentiment of this card. 
 Back the flowers with some vellum for a lighter feel. 

So let's get started - Gather the materials needed. 

First I lined up my letters on my grid mat so I got them straight. Then, I applied some washi tape to the letters. This way I can move them all together.

Next, I placed the letters onto light teal cardstock and die cut them. I repeated the process on white cardstock. Next, I die the flowers from Light Orange Glitter cardstock and vellum.

Once, I had all the components cut. I added adhesive to the back of the teal cardstock even over the die cut letters. Next, I place it onto the white cardstock that I die cut the letters from. This will be my mat for the front panel.

Then, I started inlaying the letters into place. Making sure to keep the teal center for the O.

Once, all the letters are in place I start working on the flowers. I put a small dot of glue (I used liquid glue) in the center of the vellum flower and placed the glitter flower on top. 

I gently curled the petals of the flowers to give a bit of dimension to the flowers.

I adhere the flowers to the bottom left of the card and add jewels to the centers for a finishing touch.

Now your card is complete. Simple inlay and beautiful results.

Supplies Used

Vellum, White Cardstock, Light Teal Cardstock

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

Other supplies:
Recollections Brand Heavy Weight Cardstock:
 Dark Blue, Light Green & White
