June Sparkle Blends Blog Hop

Greetings! It's time for the June Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends Release Hop! There are 6 glorious new Sparkle Blends, and the Designer Divas are going to be sharing projects using them. Be sure to head over to the Doodles Paper Playground Blog to get all of the details on the new Sparkle Blends and the hop info. My card today uses the gorgeous and seriously magical Unicorn Dreams.
I started off with a scrap piece of Rainbow Shattered Glass DecoFoil from Therm O Web. I had already applied it to a piece of cardstock with double sided sheet tape. I stamped my butterfly (from Stampendous' Cling Lilac stamp set) with StazOn Pigment ink in Piano Black and then used the coordinating die cut on it. Because the butterfly was all turquoise, Unicorn Dreams was really the perfect Blend for my shaker.
Look at those fabulous colors in Unicorn Dreams! There's pinks, purples, turquoise, plus unicorn heads and full unicorns! Ooh, and I can't forget to mention the stars.....they're just beautiful. I cut my shaker window out of gray cardstock with an Elizabeth Crafts die and backed the window with a scrap piece of paper from K & Co.
I really love the Sugar Script dies from Birch Press Designs, and I used their Big Thanks dies with purple cardstock for the bottom layer and a cool houndstooth print for the top. I also added a few sequins from the Unicorn Dreams Sparkle Blend to the top of my card with On Point Glue from Imagine.
I just love the colors on this card and in this Sparkle Blend. Mixing the patterns gives the card a lot of interest too, even though it is a fairly clean and simple design. Please be sure to join the Sparkle Blends Fan Club on Facebook to get a replay of my "FB Live" from last week. I'll be doing another one very soon on the Doodles Paper Playground main page, and I hope you'll join me. Be sure to go through the entire hop and leave some love along the way to get a chance to win some Sparkle Blends. And if you just can't wait, head over to the White Rose Crafts LLC shop to grab some. You can use my code, "Alison 15" to get 15% off of your purchase. Below is the full hop list. Thanks so much 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

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
