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!

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…
