February Sparkle Blends Release Hop

Hello Doodle Fans! Its time for another exciting release blog hop! We’ve got 6 brand new blends to share with you this month: Cozy, Storm Cloud, Good Luck Charm, Mardi Gras Parade, Birthstone Collection: February - Amethyst and Birthstone Collection: March - Aquamarine. we just know you’re going to find some sparkle to love! To see detailed descriptions of each of the February Sparkle Blends release, check out our release blog post!
This release has a variety of beautiful blends to choose from! Do you have a favorite? In honor of Valentine’s Day, comment with your favorite blend on the original Doodles Paper Playground post, for a chance to win a package of Conversation Hearts from our December release.
For my card, I chose to work with the We're Turning One Sparkle Blend. I love the bright colors in this mix. From the blues and greens, to the hot pink and purples. I adore the wide range of sizes and shapes too. This Sparkle Blend is just beautiful. And you can only get it (for free!) with a purchase of $10 or more at White Rose Crafts, while supplies last.
My focal layer was created with Stampendous' Flutters & Flowers stamp set. This is one big stamp, and it fits perfectly on a standard sized card. I colored it in with Zig Clean Color Markers. I don't usually make shakers that are basically the size of my card, but this stamp was too pretty to trim, and I really wanted to show off the "We're Turning One" Sparkle Blend. I used an Elizabeth Crafts Designs die cut to make my border around my shaker, and I used foam tape to seal it. I used a simple sentiment from Simon Says Stamp's Tiny Words stamps, just to finish the card off. The sentiment is perfect for almost any occasion, which is why I chose it. Now, read on to find out all of the prize info and full hop list.

This card is the most beautiful shaker. I adore the whole look of the card. Such a lovely card!
This lovely floral card is perfect for any occasion by just changing the sentiment on it. By making it a shaker card just adds that extra special touch that makes it outstanding.

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
