Crowned Jewels for Doodles Paper Playground

Greetings! I have some exciting news to share! I am one of the February Guest Designers for Doodles Paper Playground, and I am so excited about it. If you've never heard of them, and you love sparkly things like me, you are in for a real treat! They hand mix the most beautiful blends of sequins, microbeads, and other teeny tiny goodies into what they call Sparkle Blends. I am telling you, they are so amazing, I could eat them. Ok, please don't do that. I promise I won't either. ;) But they are luscious!

I will be sharing at least one project with each of the newly released Sparkle Blends this month. There are 5 altogether, and I know you will love them. For this card, I decided to work with Crowned Jewels, which is filled with bold colored sequins, teeny microbeads, faceted teeny gems, itty bitty stars and more. This combination screams party to me, and the colors are so dynamic. Here's a closer look at the mix.

I tell ya, it's those teeny little faceted gems that really got me. You can see a bunch in my first photo.


I used Lawn Fawn's Party Animal and Forest Feast Stamp sets to create my little scene. I stamped them on Recollections 110 lb. cardstock with Imagine's VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne. I stamped the balloon 3 times, knowing that that was where I wanted my shakers to be, and I drew the strings in myself. I colored the stamped images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The confetti is from the Stampendous Confetti Metal Stencil, and I simply colored the pieces I wanted with my Zigs.

Each balloon is separated by 2 layers of foam tape, as I didn't want any of the pretty Sparkle Blends to be hidden behind the card. I also attached a few regular sized sequins to the outside of the card with Imagine's On Point Glue.

So what do you think of the Crowned Jewels? How would you like to see more Sparkle Blends? You can only get them White Rose Crafts and I have an exclusive discount code for you!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

So &quo…

Today is a big day, because Doodles Paper Playground is having their April Sparkle Blends Release Hop. This month, 6 brand new Sparkle Blends have come out to join the party, and the Doodles Paper Playground Divas are joined by several very special Guest Designers. So sit back and enjoy all of the wonderful projects we have to share with you. There are prizes to be won along the way too!
My card today features the beautiful new "Diamond" Sparkle Blend which is filled with lovely clear, opalescent clear, and moonshine sequins. There are different sizes, shapes, and styles in the Blend, so even thought it is all technically "clear," it is full of interest. This mix is perfect for the style of shaker I did today, which has a colored focal image in the background. The clear sequins sparkles, but doesn't hide the background. It just adds some magic. I used, what ver…
