Shabby Chic Treasure - Guest Designer

I must confess I am not always very good at following sketches or keeping a CAS design. I still follow the basic structure but my creativity tends to wonder from the path. Even though I added more details and embellishments, the oval focal point is on the lower left with a sentiment and a vertical stripe. The proportions of the design look different as I used a square card base.

This card is entered into the following challenges...


So don't feel too confined to follow a sketch challenge exactly. Just allow as much or as little as you need to guide your design while still allowing your originality to soar. 
You can find more great inspiration on the White Rose Craft Blog HERE.

Mixed Media Vintage Butterfly Cards - White Rose Crafts Guest Designer

Today on the White Rose Craft Blog I am sharing a step by step mixed media project. Don't let that phrase "mixed media" scare you away. I'm simply using multiple craft mediums beyond just paper on my project. Let me show you how I easily added a pop of color to some patterned paper to create a great focal point for the stamped image. I enjoyed the result so much I just couldn't stop and I created a second variation on the first design with the same elements in different colors. You can find the tutorial and see the second card HERE.

Hope & Faith - White Rose Crafts Guest Designer

During June & July I am going to be a Guest Designer for White Rose Crafts and I am so excited to share my friendship card. It features a beautiful embossing folder which easily created the elegant cross. I kept the design fairly simple by including a delicate floral die cut simply peeking out from behind the cross. My favorite part of the card is the amazing Lemoncraft Epoxy Button. I really could use one on every project I make. There are many different styles & colors available and I'm sure you will love them as much as I do and have a really hard time selecting a set. I hope you are inspired to make some of your own cards of encouragement to have on hand for a friend in the midst of tough times.

 You can see the blog post about this project on the White Rose Blog HERE.
