Spring Fling Sparkle Blend

Hello! I've got a shaker card to share with you today that features one of the newest Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. It's called Spring Fling and it's got shades of purple, yellow, pink, a little blue, and opalescent bits in it. It's a lovely mix of sizes too! This card was made for one of my daughter's teachers, so I decided to color this Always the Flower Girl from Tiddly Inks to look like my little girl.

Because I printed the  Tiddly Inks image about 3 1/2" tall, I knew I wanted a single shaker that was large enough to stand out. I used a square Fitted Frame from Stampendous, because the simple yet fun shape is perfect for pretty much everything. I backed the shaker with a pale yellow patterned paper, since I like to add an additional pattern wherever I can. It has just  subtle splotches, but it has more interest than just plain yellow.

I colored Always the Flower Girl with my Tombow Dual Brush Markers. My daughter would absolutely wear this dress, with bright pink socks and boots. She has really long brown hair and is always giving me flowers. She doesn't have a purple streak, but she does wear clip on colored hair pieces from time to time. I added some ric-rak and a sentiment from Hero Arts' You are Loved stamp set, stamped on vellum.

Truth be told, the shaker window wasn't supposed to be tilted. But, I love the quirkiness it gave the card. That's why the ric-rak isn't straight either. I thought about redoing it, but I really did like it crooked. Look at all of the fun little bits in that Sparkle Blend! Doesn't it make you smile? 

I think the card came out happy and fun, just like my little girl. I think the Spring Fling Sparkle Blend is great for more than just spring cards, and I know that if you snag it, you will love using it. You can get any of the limited edition Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground exclusively at White Rose Crafts LLC. 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…
