Mermaid Scales are Super Duper

Hello! I've got another fun shaker card to share with you today. I really love the versatility of the How You Bean jar from Lawn Fawn, because you can fill it with pretty much anything and it will look fantastic. For this particular version, I decided to go with Mermaid Scales Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. This particular blend was released previously, but it is still available. I chose this blend, because the recipient loves blue and I really like the contrast with the shades of green.

The colors of the Sparkle Blend helped me choose the colors for the rest of the card. I used Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide with a Time Holtz stencil for my background. I paired it with some Coordinations canvas cardstock.

Here's a closer look inside the shaker. I added some stars from Lawn Fawn's add-on shaker die set for How You Bean?. They add a little bit of a cute factor that I love. The jar and lid were colored with only 3 Zig Clean Color Markers.

I used craft foam to build the thickness of the shaker. This is much simpler than using foam tape in this scenario because the jar die cuts the foam so perfectly. I also don't have to worry about breaks in the foam where sequins could fall out.

I pieced together the sentiment with the Reveal Wheel Sentiments and the Love you S'more stamp sets. Making the jar into a shaker is fast and so much fun. I hope you don't get tired of seeing them, because I know I am making a bunch. If you are interested in getting the Mermaid Scales or any other Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground, please visit White Rose Crafts LLC, as they are the only shop that you can get them. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
