A Little Gem of a Card....

Oct 17, 2018 No comments
Hi ya peeps, today I am sharing my make for the wonderful
Doodles Paper Playground!
I thought I would take a little mine trip to hunt for gems!
So for the fun and sparkly star of my card I used the super luscious Strawberry Fields Sparkle Blend from the DPP store. Not only does it contain sequins, mini strawberries and hearts, it also contains mini gems! They shine and sparkle adding a lot of dimension to projects!
I actually coordinated the colors of the card with the colors of the blend. Who doesn't love a little matchy with shine and sparkle.

A Holiday Card...

Oct 10, 2018
Hi ya peeps, today I am sharing my DT make for Kindred Stamps and the challenge on their Kindred Stamps Fan Club. The challenge is "Make A Holiday Card using Non-Holiday Stamps. Here is my make


This set is called Love Bugs and I couldn't resist coloring them up in Christmas colors with my Copics. Those cute costumes and antenna headbands are so fun. I mounted them on a green die cut and added some festive ribbon.
You can find the stamp set HERE. Stop on by the Facebook group to see all the inspiration from Kindred Stamp fans and from the Design Team. We would love to see your projects! 

Puppy Love and a Little Sparkle...

Hi ya peeps, I am here to share another DT make using more of the new release sparkle blends from Doodles Paper Playhouse. It's all about love and puppies!
I am really starting to love creating shaker cards. The Gingerbread Man blend is browns, cream and golds. I find that they aren't just an earthy brown but vibrant browns which light up every time you hit the light at a different angle.

I created the frame of this card using my cutting machine. I used Judikins Embossable Window Plastic  and adhered it to the front of my card using tape adhesive. I then found double sided foam tape to form the pocket, added the fab Sparkle Mix Gingerbread Man (I removed the gingerbread men) and started adding all of my other elements.

The Sparkle Blend Gingerbread Man and the Judikins Embossable Window Plastic can all be found in the White Rose Crafts store where the sparkle blends are EXCLUSIVELY sold. I hope you enjoyed my make!

Doodles Paper Playground Blog Hop!

Oct 6, 2018
Hi ya peeps, Doodles Paper Playground is having a blog hop introducing the new DT and I am one of them!  I've created a special card using my most favorite sparkly embellishments and I am eager to share.

 I am a huge fan of fun, colored sparkly things and this blend has already become a favorite of mine! Pretty purples, blues, pinks and silvers make up this blend called Vixen. I paired this kit with some coordinating paper and fun gnomes.

I used my window die to cut out the windows for the card. To figure out how to  make a shaker card I went here for instructions.  I added my cute little gnome characters, added the Sparkle Blend: Vixen in the window and adhered it to some pretty polk a dot background paper. These fun Sparkle Blends can be found at White Rose Crafts.  Don't forget to check out the blog and Facebook group for lots of inspiration from the design team. 

The next person on the hop is...

Sparkle Blends for Autumn...

Oct 4, 2018
Hi ya peeps! Today I am sharing a sparkly fall card for
Doodles Paper Playground
I am so excited to be on this team and work with all the wonderful sparkle blends. Who doesn't love a little sparkle!
For this card, I used my electronic cutter and cut out a maple leaf shape to highlight the Sparkle Blend Be-Leaf in Yourself. This blend is perfect for Fall and all things colorful. You can find the blend in the White Rose Crafts store.

To finish my card I used Distress Ink pads to rub a little color into the leaves and the leaf shapes using the Distress Inks dauber in a circular motion. The colors I used are Carved Pumpkin, Dried Marigold and Ripe Persimmon and Aged Mahogany. I used pop up dots on the leafs for a little dimension and I used Gina K Pure Luxury layering cardstock to print and cut on. 
Don't forget to stop by the FaceBook page and the blog for new and fun sparkly inspiration from the design team. Have a crafty day!
