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!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
