Unicorn and Flowers

Hi, it's Rhiannon. I made this card for my friend's birthday. I like using flowers on my cards, so the Flower Power Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground was perfect.
I saw the unicorn stamp from Lawn' Fawn's Critter Ever After set, and thought it would be really cute. I stamped it with VersaFine ink in Black Onyx and colored it in with Memento Markers, which are my favorite. Then I took the clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker and colored the whole unicorn with it, except for the hooves and the horn. For those, I used a gold glitter marker from Crayola's "Art with Edge" collection. Then I die cut the unicorn. I also stamped, cut, and colored 3 stars.
I did my background next. I cut a small mat and inked the Spectrum Kaleidacolor ink pad from Imagine on to a brayer. After I rolled the ink on to my paper, I used Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz all over the background.
Then I made the card base and glued the background on to it. Next I glued on the unicorn and stars. After that, I took out the Flower Power Sparkle Blend and chose some flowers. I like this Sparkle Blend because of the all the different colors and shapes of the flowers. I positioned the flowers and then glues them with On Point Glue from Imagine.
I like how I put the cluster of flowers by the unicorn's feet to look like she was stepping on them. Softly of course. I like how I scattered all the other flowers around it. I think this Sparkle Blend was really cut to use with the unicorn and the multicolored background. You can get many of the products I used today from White Rose Crafts. Have a good day!

Little Boo Shaker

Greetings! Alison here. Today I have a TWELVE window shaker (using six Sparkle Blends!) to share with you, and I hope you think it's as adorable as I do. I recently went to an event with Mama Elephant in NYC with my husband and I bought some of their newest stamps and dies. We had an amazing time. My card today uses Little Boo Agenda, which was previously released. I couldn't wait to use it.
Just look at these adorable ghosties! There are even more in the stamp set that I didn't use on this card. But don't worry, I'll use them on something soon. When I first saw the Grid Window cover die, I knew it was absolutely perfect for shaker cards. And the "Agenda" stamps (basically teeny images that are great for planners as well as cards) fit so well within the windows.
I die cut the Grid Window with gray cardstock, and I also cut a sheet of white craft foam with it to make creating the shakers easier. I used Tear It! Tape from Imagine (which is 1/4" wide) to adhere all of my layers together. After I had colored my ghosts, I began to place them and choose my Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. I really love how the two little ghosts above turned out.
There are so many beautiful Sparkle Blends to choose from, but only two of the ones I used today actually fell into the "Halloween" category. That means you can really stretch the Blends you may already have on hand to make them work for many occasions. In the photo above, you can see Orange You Glad, Green with Envy, Dragon Glass, and Mardi Gras Parade.
The other two Sparkle Blends that I used are Trick or Treat and Something Wicked. Although it takes some time to put the individual Blends into each shaker window, the ghosts (and other Agenda stamps) don't take long to color, so the time evens itself out.
I colored the ghosts with Zig Clean Color Markers, and my background was done with Distress Oxides in Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, and Lucky Clover.
I really love this card, and I can't wait to play with all of these elements in different ways very soon. I have two other "Agenda" stamp sets from Mama Elephant, and I know that they'll be perfect with this Grid Window and Sparkle Blends. And of course, I love how this cover die showcases the many Sparkle Blends I used on this card. They all stand out, and I don't think they are overwhelming because i was careful to not overfill the windows. Be sure to visit White Rose Crafts to see all of the currently available Sparkle Blends. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Thankful Shaker Card

Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a fall shaker card using Doodle Paper Playground Sparkle Blend: Be-Leaf in Yourself.

No photo description available.
This festive seasonal blend is packed full of tiny little leaves and sequins in various textures, 
finishes and shades of orange, red, yellow & brown—making it perfect for all of your autumn projects.

This is the card I created. 

I used plenty of die-cut leaves and filled the shaker with the Be-Leaf in Yourself sparkle blend to give the card a true fall feel. I used the thankful from Lawn Fawn's So thankful for you die. I simply trimmed it.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today. I hope you found some inspiration!
