Spring is almost here! I can feel it. And I cannot wait! Today, I wanted to share a card I made that feels very much like Spring to me. Although in my area, Cyclamen are houseplants, the stamp and stencil I used makes me think of all the wonderful plants that will soon be sprouting in my garden.

Shaker Cat

Greetings! Today I have a new card for Doodles Paper Playground. I decided to make a shaker card, and I did it in a way I haven't attempted before. It took me a little time to get everything just how I wanted, but when it was finished, I was really happy with it. I used the Rosey Gold Sparkle Blends for this card, which I think worked out great with the colors of my background. This particular Sparkle Blend has lots of pink and rose gold sequins, plus teeny little sequins, crystals, and micro beads. I especially love the big pink stars!

I really wanted to use the Laurel Burch Tribal Cats stamp set, because the dies would cut out a nice big window for my shaker area. I started off by die cutting my black cardstock with the 3 pieces of the cat. Then I cut a piece of acetate (from the packaging of a stamp) and temporarily adhered it to the back of the black cardstock. I set my cat head up on an acrylic block, inked it with StazOn ink and flipped the cardstock and acetate combo over o…

Floral Hello

Hello there! I am very happy to announce that I will be staying on as a Doodles Paper Playground Designing Diva. I had so much fun last month as a guest, so I was thrilled when the team was asked to become a bit more of a permanent fixture. There is no new release this month, so the other Divas and I will be sharing projects using the pre-released selection of Sparkle Blends. Which, is not a bad thing, because there are so many beautiful colors and objects in each of the blends, you're sure to see something new each time you check out a project! Today, I am featuring the Unicorn Sparkle Blend, which may very well be my favorite of them all. There are so many amazing colors, including lots of opalescent sequins and gems, plus a ton of totally adorable and impossibly small Fimo pieces. Today I saw a bow, smiley faces, pizza, and an adorable purple cat when I poured the blend out to work with it. Next time I am sure I'll find something else!

Check it out! Not a single stamp was u…
