Botanic Hello with Sparkle Blends

Hello! Or should I say, "Botanic Hello?" That's the name of the beautiful (and BIG) stamp from Mama Elephant I used today to show off some stunning sequins from Doodles Paper Playground. I chose to work with the Flaming Sunset Sparkle Blends for this card. The colors and styles of sequins in this pack are so unique and bold. I also decided to use a few of the flowers from the Flower Power Sparkle Blend, which is full of nothing but beautiful and bright floral sequins. It's a real beauty!

I first stamped out my image and colored it with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. To make the "hello" pop, I used a glitter pen from Sakura. Then I gave the image a loose fussy cut, leaving a thin white border around it. Next I chose 2 green pieces of cardstock to add behind my colored image. I thought they really helped the image pop, especially since I left that white border. 

Then I chose the sequins I thought went best with the colored image. I played around with the placement a bit and the mix of sequins themselves until I was happy with the various textures and colors. I didn't want to go too matchy-matchy, but rather coordinate with the marker colors I used. I affixed them with On Point Glue from Imagine. That glue has a super fine tip, dries clear, and quickly. I used pop dots on the stamped image to add even more dimension. 

There you have it! It's a pretty simple card, but it has lots of glitz. The stamped image is a focal point, but those uniquely shaped sequins certainly hold their own in the spotlight too. I love how this came out, and I can imagine doing this same card in varying colors. A set of them would make a fun gift! Remember, all of the Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends are limited edition, and you can only get them from White Rose Crafts LLC. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
