Rainbows for Days

Hello! It's time for a new card, and I am featuring not only lots of beautiful sequins from Doodles Paper Playground, but a new (for me) stamp set from The Ink Road  called Full Circle.

Doodles Paper Playground has released 6 brand new Sparkle Blends yesterday and as I was looking at them, I just couldn't decide which to use first. So I decided to use them all! Sort of. Here's what I did. I started off by choosing the circle images from Full Circle that I wanted to use. Then, I picked a different Memento Ink color from Imagine for each circle, creating a rainbow. After stamping them all, I used a 1" circle punch to cut them out.

I arranged the circles on my card and popped up the orange and blue with foam tape for dimension. Then I began to choose my sequins. I picked through my entire collection of Sparkle Blends, though I did try to focus on using the new release as much as possible. The large orange, large holographic blue, and all of the small glitter sequins, for example, are from the new release blends. I laid out the sequins in rainbow order, trying to get a good color change throughout. When I was satisfied, I glued all of the sequins down with On Point Glue from Imagine. I heat embossed my sentiment, added that, and stuck it all down on to a black card base.

I love the playful look of this card. It was fun to make, and really didn't take long at all. If you haven't checked out The Ink Road, I encourage you to do that. I'll be making a lot more with the Full Circle set, and I just ordered a couple more with lots of fabulous, snarky sentiments. And of course, you've just got to check out the new release Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. They are positively beautiful! You can only get them HERE at White Rose Crafts LLC. Thank you so much 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
