Jingle All the Way with Sparkle Blends

Hello again! I've got a new shaker card to share with you today that features one of the newest Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. This beautiful combo is called Very Cranberry and it is perfect for Fall and Holiday cards (way more than that too...but that's what first came to mind when I saw it). It's got reds and browns with bits of gold. There's sequins, micro beads, mini gems, and even glitter sequins! It's a luxe mix that's just gorgeous.

I used an adorable reindeer from Mama Elephant (via Hampton Art) called Reindeer Fun. There's a bunch of little reindeer in the set (comes with the dies too!) but I opted to just go for the jumping image. I colored them with my Zig Clean Color Markers. I took a piece for Neenah Desert Storm cardstock for my top layer and die cut a scalloped circle from Stampendous' Build a Wreath Die Set. This will be the shaker area. I inked the edges of the top layer with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and splattered some water on to it for some visual interest. I also added my sentiment, which I curved around the circle.

On my card base, I stenciled the Petals Background with Brown Shimmer Delicata Ink from Imagine. I usually like to have something happening in the backgrounds of my shakers so that if and when the mix settles to the bottom, it's not just a vast space of white (or any other color). The Delicata ink has the pretties shimmer of any ink I've seen, so it really pops even though it is brown ink on brown cardstock. I used craft foam on my top layer to secure the Sparkle Blend.

I added a good amount of the Very Cranberry to the shaker area, and I still have a ton left! You get so much bang for our buck with Sparkle Blends.

This card is fun and festive and came together quickly. I love these little reindeer and I look forward to using the rest of them. I may wind up running out of Very Cranberry soon, because I really like this card design! Please visit White Rose Crafts LLC to see all of the Sparkle Blends that are currently available. They are all limited edition, so once they're gone, they're gone for good. 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
