December Sparkle Blend Release Hop!

Hello! It's time for another new release hop with Doodles Paper Playground! We've got 6 new blends to share with you, and I, together with the rest of the Doodles Paper Playground Design Team, have joined forces with Gail Tasker--you may know her as Ionabunny--our guest designer for the months of December and January! We can't wait to see more of what she has to share with us all! To see detailed descriptions of each of the December Sparkle Blends release, check out our release blog post! And yes, there are prizes to be won! Be sure to go to the bottom of this post to find out how you can win! Here's my card.

Today is my daughter's 10th birthday. Double digits!!! I had to user some Sparkle Blends for her birthday card, of course. This lovely Blend is called Icicle. It's frosty and sweet and she loves it. Although truthfully, she loves ALL of the Sparkle Blends!

I just bought a die set from Avery Elle which apparently is old, because I can't seem to find it online. But, banner dies are readily available from many companies, if you're looking to recreate this card, you should be able to with little trouble. To cut out the banners, I first cut the one in the center, then the sides. I used a Diagonal Stripe Stencil from Simon Says Stamp with Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. My sentiment is from Gina K Designs.

Behind my shaker windows, I used Lawn Fawn's Pixie Dust Sparkle Cardstock. I LOVE that cardstock! I also used Blue Shimmer Paper from Craft Creations. These papers really add a ton of shine in the shaker windows. They also make the Sparkle Blends really stand out! I made my card base out of gray cardstock.

If you're ready to start shopping, please head on over to White Rose Crafts LLC, the exclusive merchant for Sparkle Blends--and remember, as always, each of the new release blends are limited edition--so if you love one, get it now, before they're gone! Now, on to the prizes!
Grand Prize: One person who comments on all posts will win full size packages of all 6 of our December Release Sparkle Blends!
3 Door Prizes: 3 randomly selected commenters will receive one full size package of Sparkle Blends from the December Release!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Beautiful shaker card! I love the Icicle Sparkle Blend you used! Pretty color combo for your card!
WOW! What a beautiful shaker card. It's amazing how the background colors change the look of the sparkles! I never would have thought it made that much difference but this shows the dramatic difference! Very cool.

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

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images. I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set  and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder. I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes
