Super Duper Shaker

Hello! Today I am sharing a really fun shaker card with Cotton Candy Sparkle Blends from Doodle Paper Playground. I just bought the whole "How You Bean?" set from Lawn Fawn, specifically to use with the many Sparkle Blends I have in my stash.

I typically prefer bright, bold colors...but there's something so fabulous about the Cotton Candy Sparkle Blend. Yup, it's definitely super sweet, but it's also opalescent and shiny. It's one of my favorite Sparkle Blends. Also inside the jar are a few stars that come with the How You Bean Add On Die set, and I stamped faces on a few of them, which I think makes the shaker even more joyful.

My background was created with a leftover piece of watercolor paper that had been dipped in in Distress Oxide Inks. Then I stenciled the Waves and Dots stencil with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide. 



In the photo above, you can see all of the tiny elements that make up this particular Sparkle Blend. I love the itty bitty opalescent stars, as well as the crystals. There are even some butterflies! My sentiment was created with a couple of Lawn Fawn stamp sets. The "Everything is" and "fun with you" is from the Love You S'more set, and the "super duper is from the new Reveal Wheel Sentiments. I added a piece of patterned paper to the bottom of the card to create a ground for the jar to sit on. 


I tell ya, shaker cards just make people happy. I was showing the completed card to my husband, kids, and my mom, and their faces just lit right up. They couldn't stop shaking them, and they just kept telling me how fun shakers are. So if you need to brighten someone's day, give them a shaker. You'll be seeing a lot of these jars from me, as I think they will be great for so many occasions. Changing out the Sparkle Blends inside will totally change the mood of the jar. I may just be trying it out with one of the new releases that will be coming out next month! Remember, you can only get Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground 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…
