Something Wicked...

Hello! I've got a shaker card to share with you today, ad it features the "Something Wicked" Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground. I LOVE this new Sparkle Blend because it has shades of purples, blue, black and silver. Plus!!! It's got little sequins with black and white stripes, and teeny fimo pieces that have witch hats and ghosts on it! It's almost like Amber made this blend for me! ;)

Of course, I created this card based on the colors and vibe of this particular Sparkle Blend. I went through all of my Halloween stamps (that took a while!) and came across this great witch silhouette from Recollections (it's a Michaels brand). I stamped her directly on to acetate with StazOn Ink. Next I chose a purple cardstock for my top layer and die cut a circle that would accommodate the size of my stamped image, plus extra room to see the Sparkle Blends moving and shaking! I inked the edges of the purple with Shimmer Silver Delicata Ink from Imagine.

I created my card base out of gray cardstock and added my shaker bits to the center of the base. After adding gray craft foam to the purple and acetate layer, I applied it to my base. Next, I stamped the "wicked" which came with the witch with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with Detail Silver embossing powder. I then cut it out with a Fitted Frame. That big piece of acetate and the height of the craft foam really allow the Sparkle Blends to have a lot of movement in the card.

I really like using silhouette stamps as a foreground for a shaker. They come together quickly and have a lot of impact. Please check out all of the Sparkle Blends that are currently available from Doodles Paper Playground over at the White Rose Crafts LLC shop. That is the only place that you can buy Sparkle Blends, so be sure to visit! 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
