Altair Art and White Rose Crafts

All week long the design team over at White Rose Crafts is going to be celebrating one of the very cool lines of products they carry in their store.  If you are not at this point familiar with WRC, it is a Virginia based internet paper crafting store that brings in tons of European paper crafting supplies and send them to you for local shipping costs.  WRC ships all over the world, and brings in a really fun collection of products you may have never seen before.

This week we are celebrating Altair Art, a Polish paper crafting company creates soft and elegant paper.  If you are not familiar with this brand, make sure you check out all the different gorgeous papers.

And before we get started with the six different cards I created today using a bunch of papers from the Altair Art Flower Harmony paper pack, if you want to grab some new papers or any new supplies from WRC, feel free to use the code EK 15 to get 15% off your purchase!

flower harmonyToday I created six different cards, pulling in some stamps from WRC to really help make the paper sing.  The Flower Harmony paper pack includes four pieces of each print, front and back paper.  In fact I recently did an unboxing that included this paper pack if you want to see all the is included.  Where I show the Altair Art paper pack starts at about 5:30, so you can easily pop in and see the gorgeous paper.

Scroll Down to see how I used this paper to create some graceful cards for all occasions.


Card OneEK Gorman, White Rose Crafts, Altair Art kThe first card feature two of the printed paper (front and back pieces) that I fussy cut and layered to create a bit of dimension.  I used Kelly Creates Quotes One sentiment stamp set and the Metallic Jewel Brush Pens to add the sentiment and some Woodware Dual Adhesive Mounting Foam to pop up the fussy cut paper.

Card ThreeEK Gorman, White Rose Crafts, Altair Art eFor card three, I trimmed a piece of the Altair Art printed paper to fit an A2 card frame and then stamped a bit of cake and a sentiment from the Woodware Tea for Two  stamp set.  I then colored the cake with my colored pencils and accented the whole card with Dusty Rose Nuvo Drops.

Card FourEK Gorman, White Rose Crafts, Altair Art gI know you are not suppose to have favorites, but this one ended up being mine.  I used two pieces of printed paper (again a coordinating front and back piece) and fussy cut out the fun floral detail.  I fit the other piece to an A2 card frame.  Then using a bit of the pink scrap paper from the fussy cut piece, I stamped out a sentiment from the Your Next Stamp Whatnot Sentiments 4 sentiment stamp set and add flowers from the Woodware Floral Frames stamp set.  I colored the flowers with my colored pencils and adhered the fussy cut paper with some Woodware Dual Adhesive Mounting Foam to pop it up.EK Gorman, White Rose Crafts, Altair Art h


Card Five EK Gorman, White Rose Crafts, Altair Art cThis card features two coordinating printed papers, plus a bit of scrap from another project.  I trimmed down some of the card to fit an A2 frame and then fussy cut out the flowers and butterflies from the back side to create a project that fits this month’s WRC sketch challenge.  You too can join in on the challenge just by loading your project to the WRC album in the Facebook Gallery.  I added the sentiment from the Dovecraft If Friends Were Flowers stamp and some Earl Gray Nuvo Drops.
