Inky Paws Challenge #74

Today I am sharing a fun card that I did for the Newton's Nook Design Inky Paws Challenge #74.

I am in love with this Toucan set and finally made a card with it. The colors are some of my favorites and are perfect for summertime! 

I started by ink smooshing some distress inks in mustard seed and peacock feathers on some watercolor paper. I then die cut it out using stitched rectangle die. I stamped and colored my images with my Zig realclean markers and then cut them out with my silhouette cameo since I don't have the dies. I added some wink of stella, nuvo drops, and finished it off with a heat embossed sentiment. Toucan definitely party better than one! 

Splash Into Summer

It's a new week at White Rose Crafts and we have a new theme, Splashing into Summer, that comes with a discount for you using the code "JUNE". Who doesn't love a sale??!!

For my first add on project I made this cute mini album from an svg file of Lori Whitlock's. I used my Cameo 3 to cut it and the papers out making it very quick and easy to put together. The papers are all from the June kit itself. 

For the front cover I used the Kaiser Craft add on of the wooden flower from their Mini Wooden Flourishes- Butterfly collection. 

The smile die cut is included in the June monthly kit and is by Jillybean Soup.

Inside this mini album are a lot of places for photos and is just a fun little album to carry around. 
For my next project with add ons, this one was a LOT of fun!

This project uses a background paper from the June kit itself. I die cut the frame from bristol white cardstock and used various distress oxide ink colors including Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade. I also used various colors of Nuvo Drops in the following colors: Strawberry Coulis, Orange Marmalade, and Caribbean Ocean. The stamp set that is featured in this card is the Lawn Fawn Toadally Awesome. The best part about this card is almost everything is on sale to create it!! Here's to a Hoppy shopping day for you!

Camping and Smore's fun

There is nothing better for my kids and I that summer nights with smores. We light the fire pit or if we are at the pond a fire and roast marshmallows and have yummy treats! We talk about our day or just funny stuff and memories are made. When I saw this Easily A'moose'd stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs I knew I had to have it! Now our oldest is away for her summer internship and we are missing her so I whipped up this card to let her know. I used distress oxides, water, and white acrylic paint for the background. I colored with copics, I am trying to get better but have a LONG ways to go. To help me color more I have joined The Daily Marker 30 day Challenge. It is such a fun challenge and anyone can join, even kids! So here's to a summer of smores for you and your family:

There is a new theme this week at White Rose Crafts LLC  using LemonCraft products. This is the first time that I have used this brand but I am in love!! The papers are just gorgeous and very nice to work with. I am so excited to say that I have stepped back into papercrafting and scrapbooking again. My project featuring LemonCraft is this photo collage of my girls.

Makayla has her funny smile on but I still love this pic. I did a collage style around the photo to make it the focal point. I chose the House of Roses collection because it matched this photo so well and gives it that timeless feel that I was looking for. I used the paper that I inked with distress oxide inks for a more aged look, ephemera cards that I used the Tim Holtz distresser or hand ripped and inked, and the ephemera sheet. For the ephemera sheet I cut the elements out using my Cameo 3 and a pix mat. I used heavy adhesive and some foam dots for dimension. I was still missing something so I added in some Kaiser Craft wood pieces. The pink butterfly was inked with versamark, dipped in Rose Gold embossing powder, and then heat set. It honestly came together sooo quickly and easily for stunning results! 

The pallet board that was used is by Jillybean Soup from Walmart. And this is how it looks hanging on my wall. Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting! Please post questions below and I will try to get them answered.

More Sympathy Cards

2018 is bringing lots of occasions to use sympathy cards. I am so very glad that I bought the sympathy line of sugar cuts and stamps from Sugar Pea Designs. They have the perfect sentiments for this type of occasion. I created a very simple design for this set of cards. I love how I can just leave the stamp in my Misti tool and mass produce cards like these.

I used 4 different types of embossing powder on these. The left front is rose gold from Lawn Fawn, the front right is Recollections Sapphire Pearl, the back left is Ranger Verdigris, and the back right is Ranger Silver. I also used clear for the sentiments. Using embossing powder added just the right finishing touch to these.

You can find both of these stamp sets at Sugar Pea Designs

Sympathy Card.. Mix it up challenge 41

It is all a subject that we hate to have to make cards for but it is a fact of life..sympathy cards. Sugar Pea Designs has made it easy and even enjoyable to make a sympathy card with their recent release. There is a sympathy die cut that is gorgeous and on my card today. A full stamp set with flowers and sentiments used on this card, a full sentiment stamp set, and a topiary stamp set that isn't just for sympathy occasion but other occasions as well round out the newest sympathy sets.

Here is today's card which is also for the Sugar Pea Mix it Up challenge #41

The inspiration is of northern lights and I tried to incorporate the glow of that into this card. I started by white heat embossing the largest flower from the set and then used distress oxide inks for the pink and green in the flower. I used Blueprint Sketch oxide around the edges and sprinkled some water on it for dew drop. I used metallic watercolors for the splashes on the black card base. I finished it off with some clear sequins. I really love how it turned out! #SugarPeaDesigns

Alien Party!

So some of you know that I am a Mom, Wife, and Substitute Teacher. Here lately subbing has been in high demand and I have been working almost everyday for 2 weeks. That is hard on my chipmunk because I normally try to be home at least 2 days a week with her. That is my full time job, being a mom to all 3 of my kids.

Today I am home and she wanted to make her favorite project, slime. So we added some purple food coloring and some star glitter confetti from Dollar Tree and make some purple space slime. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have been doing a lot of coloring during plan periods, time when kids aren't in the room, and when I have the grading done left for me. Well, some of that coloring was from the new Lawn Fawn "Beam Me Up" stamp set.

 While I was busy in the kitchen, this little girl grabbed my recently cut (like only cut for 5 minutes) aliens and started playing with them. I knew that paper and slime were not going to mix well but I also know my strong willed child..... In comes the laminator!!

Now we have an Alien birthday party in slime that will last!! Since the aliens and spaceships are laminated, this opens them up for all types of play!
