Intergalactic Hi

Greetings everyone! Today I have a new shaker card featuring the Intergalactic Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground.

In my never-ending attempt to make shaker cards in different ways, this time I used letter dies from Quik Kutz. Are they even a company any more? Anyway, I had this cool, outer-space looking alcohol ink background that I had made a while back on glossy photo paper, and I thought it would go really well with the Intergalactic Sparkle Blend. This blend has lots of stars and bold, bright colors plus black and silver. It is a gorgeous mix of shapes and sizes and it's become a favorite of mine.

I tried to highlight the letters a bit with a white Molotow pen, but the nib on the pen is shot, so it was't working right. I scraped away some of the white but I couldn't get it all up. The jury is still out on whether or not I like the white the way it is. I probably should have just left it alone. But look at those pretty sparklies!!!

I felt as though the card needed a little something else, so I die cut a few vellum stars and added them towards the top left corner. I added a few sequins to them to help hide my glue and add some additional shine. The stars are really subtle, but just what the card needed. I put the shaker on a gray card base, which I think is so pretty.

This card is a quick one to make, as I usually have a bunch of backgrounds on hand. So it's just a matter of making the shaker and adding embellishments. Be sure to visit White Rose Crafts LLC to see the Intergalactic Sparkle Blend as well as all of the other options. They are all limited edition, so be sure to grab what you love when you see it! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

So &quo…
