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!
