Wobble Wobble!!




This started out as a card simply because a friend wanted to make some cards over spring break but she does NOT like to stamp at all. She has tried it and it just isn't for her. She asked me if I ever made cards that didn't need to be stamped. Of course I do, and that's how this came about!

I used Doodlebug Designs Puppy Love paper and Odds and Ends. I added some green nuvo drops to the tree for some dimension and popped up the bird with some foam tape. For the really fun part, I added a Hampton Art Wobble Spring behind the puppy to make him wiggle around when touched. I also added some black nuvo drops to his eyes for even more dimension.


This is the action wobbler to the right side of this card.


This is what it looks like when the dog is attached to the dog and card. And below is the video showing how he wobbles when attached the card.

March Sketch WRC

Hello everyone! It's all about Dragons Tails right now in our house with the new How to Train your Dragon movie coming out. We all love dragons and vikings which is perfect to go with this Doodlebug card using the Dragon Tails line. For this card I used the March Sketch


You can play along 3 times and post to the White Rose Crafts LLC FB Gallery page for your chance to win a $15.00 gift card.

Here is my take on the sketch. I used a lot of supplies that I will list at the end with links to get your own so you can share with us and enter for a chance to win.


I LOVE making light up cards and this Chibitronics Intro Pack makes it so easy to do. Everything you need is included in this to make your own light up card. I also used the Doodlebug Dragon Tails 6x6 paper pack, odd and ends, some Antique Rose nuvo drops, and a glitter brush. 




I started by making my path of how to lay out the copper tape, light, and battery. I forgot to take pics of this part. I did that on the card base itself. Next I used foam tape around the battery and on the background paper to allow some space for the battery to be pressed down. I punched a hole where the dragon's fire lights up. I cut a banner to match the sketch and punched a hole there as well, lining them up and adhering them together. Next I added a double layer of foam tape to the dragon placing his belly on the battery and the fire over the light. I finished it off with a strip sentiment and some odds and end pieces. Nuvo drops were added for some extra dimension.


This is the finished card lit up. I really like how cute it turned out. You can search on Youtube for videos on light up cards. They are really easy to make once you take the step and just start! White Rose Crafts carries all the supplies you need to make it even easier!! 



Supplies:

Chibtronics Intro Pack

Dragon Tails Odds and Ends

Dragon Tails 6x6 Paper Pad

Antique Rose Nuvo Drops

For my sketch, I used several products from the Trmicraft's Tiny Tatty Teddy line. I started with a background die cut with Lawn Fawn's Quilted Backdrop die and inked the edges with Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink. I inked the edges of my notecard in Antique Linen distress oxide ink. I ran some of the Tiny Tatty Teddy Floral ribbon across the middle, then added a sticker from the sticker sheet to put on top. I finished it off with some of the floral stickers from the sheet and Dress It Up mini heart buttons.  That's it for a quick and easy but elegant card!

Distress Oxide Painting

Happy Crafty Sunday! I had the opportunity to play with some of my distress oxides yesterday, and I did a technique that I have wanted to do a for a while but just never did... Distress Oxide water Painting. The pictures don't do justice but you can see the idea. I started by taking a 4.5"x5.5" piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock where I used my anti stick powder and went over the whole thing. Next I used the doily from the Kaisercraft "Ubud Dreams" stamp set and inked it with versamark and heat embossed with white powder. When that was done, I inked the whole panel heavily, with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink .


Once the panel was inked heavily over the stamped and embossed image, I took a paper towel and wiped away the excess ink off the white embossed image. Next I took my waterbrush and figured out where I wanted a lighter part of the stamped image and started to apply a lot of water in those areas. I used my heat gun to dry the water making those areas lighter in color. That is why it is so important to ink the panel heavily. 


This is a close up of the image when done with the waterbrush. If you look closely, you can see a lighter image just inside the stamp then a bit further in and towards the inside circle. You can really see the results better in person but I tried to capture it the best I could. It is really pretty! 


To finish off the card panel, I die cut it with a scalloped rectangle. Then, I actually messed up! Yes, I messed up. I decided to still show it because everyone makes mistakes and I was playing and sometimes it works and sometimes it flops. I wanted the sentiment to be subtle so I stamped it with versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. You can see it but it is not very prominent at all. I decided to go with it and left it. I finished the card off with some clear rhinestone jewels.


And there you have it. A subtle but pretty way to use distress oxides. There is no right or wrong way to using these inks and the possibilities are endless. There are so many techniques and ways to use these versatile inks. I encourage you to check out youtube for some videos on other techniques!

Today I am sharing a fun Tag Album that I made from recycled cereal boxes, Altair Art Festive Bells line of papers and embellishments.
I started with cutting some oversized tags from cereal boxes on my Cricut Explore. Then I attached them together with some strong tape on both the front and back making sure that they could fold together. (I didn't get pictures of this step, sorry! ). The next step was to figure out the paper layout and cut them. Then I glued those onto the chipboard tags. This was the hardest step for me because I am really picky about how the papers go together. I do have to admit that this paper line makes it a lot easier because they all work together well. I cut the tags from the Epherma Collection. After cutting them out I added several colors of Nuvo Drops and glitter to jazz them up a bit. I let them dry over night. I cut the title strips apart and used some Distress Oxide ink around the edges to age them a bit. Then I added some gold stickers and some die cut pinecone and poinsettias throughout the album. It was a lot of time putting this together but I am very happy with the final product!
