Greetings! Today I am sharing one of the newest Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground with you, and it has quickly become a favorite of mine. It's called "Cozy", and it has such a fantastic color combination! I'll give you a close up below, but first....let's take a look at my card.
 If you follow me on social media at all, you'll know that one of my favorite stamp companies is Ink Road Stamps. Ink Road has fabulous, snarky, trendy, and amazing stamps, all wrapped up into one fantastic company. One of my most used stamp sets from them is called Mug Life. I thought that the travel cup was perfect for a shaker, so I decided to stamp it 3 times.
 I cut out the wrapper area with an X-Acto knife, and painted the cups with my Koi Watercolors. The stamps were all inked with VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne. Now, check out those fabulous colors n the Cozy Sparkle Blend! It's like a muted rainbow, and it's really quite refreshing. I am over the moon with this one, and I know I'm going to use it a lot! Here's a closer look at "Cozy."
You can see the various sizes of sequins, plus the mini beads, gems, and glitter sequins. This is like a big stew of colors and styles, and it is just beautiful.
Since there are so many colors and varieties in this Sparkle Blend, I opted to keep my card very clean and simple. I mounted it on to a brown card base to go with the color of the cups, and that's it. It really shows off not only the beautiful Blend, but the pretty simplicity of the cups. And that sentiment cracks me up! Be sure to visit the Doodles Paper Playground Blog to see all of the new Sparkle Blends that have been released this month. And if you're ready to shop, head on over to White Rose Crafts to see all of the gorgeous Sparkle Blends that are currently available.

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…
