Japanese Dreams

Hey Friends! Did you see that White Rose Crafts is back open? That’s right…you can now again order all kinds of hard to find international crafting supplies while still having only US shipping prices. Today I am playing around with some scrapes from another project to create these five paper pieced cards. If you missed my first project using the Japanese Dreams paper pack from Scrapberry, a Polish paper crafting. If you missed my old post where I got these scrapes from, feel free to click here to check out those cards I created using this collection.

Step One: Pull all the scrapes of paper together. I used papers just from the Japanese Dreams paper pack.

Step Two: Trim all the scrapes down to simple strips using a paper trimmer. I trimmed the larger scrapes on a diagonal to make sure I had long enough stripes.

Step Three: Add double sided adhesive to an A2 card frame. Adhere stripes of the printed paper to the adhesive, making sure to not put to of the same pieces next to each other.

Step Four: Finish covering the A2 card frame. Yes there will be scrapes hanging over the edges.

Step Five: Trim off access paper from the edges of the A2 card frame.

Step Six: Repeat steps three through five will all the scrapes on different card frames.

Step Seven: Distress the edges of the cards frame with Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide.

Step Eight: Using a circle die, die cut out the ephemera from the Japanese Dreams Paper Pack Embellishment Sheet.

Step Nine: Distress the edges of the die cut circles using Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide.

Step Ten: Using scissors, fussy cut out five more images that will coordinate with these scenes.

Step Eleven: Adhere both the circle and the fussy cut image onto the card frames. To add a touch of bling, add three drops of Nuvo Drops. Here on the Cherry Blossom card I used Pink Champagne Nuvo Glitter Drops.

The Dream card got three drops of Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The card featuring the Kokeshi doll I used Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel Drops.

The card with the stunning Japanese blossoms and birds got drops of Auburn Pearl Metallic Crystal Drops.

Finally the card with the Coy Fish, I used the Wedgewood Blue Nuvo Crystal Drops.

I just love how all these cards came out, especially since they were made with the ‘trash’ paper of another project! Which of these cards were your favorite? Let me know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
