Warm And Cozy Wishes

Happy Thanksgiving to all those who are celebrating! These cuties are celebrating too! With a mix of Eggnog With Nutmeg Sparkle Blends and Mulled Wine Sparkle Blends! This mix of blends is perfect for this cozy scene!

I have used Coffee Friends Stamp and Die Sets and Cozy Christmas Eve Stamp and Die Sets, along with Cozy Burrow Scene Builder Die Set, all from Hello Bluebird Stamps, to create this super cute and festive shaker card. I used both Catherine Pooler Inks as well as Copics to color this up. I have also used Scor Tape as well as some thin foam tape to create my shaker.



I really do love everything about how well these blends go together and work wonderfully for this scene and personally may need to grab some more before they are gone!

So head over to the Sparkle Blends Shop. Grab your favorites from the November release while they are still available! And as always, take a look on the Doodles Paper Playground blogFacebook page and in the Sparkle Blends Fan Club on Facebook to see all the fun things going on!

I do hope you enjoy this project and can't wait to see what you create!

Hugs!

So today I am playing with Hello Frosty Sparkle Blend and I must say this may really be a favorite for me. It is winter, and it is all my favorite colors and it really goes beyond just the holidays and works all winter long. So check this out.

My card base is Classic Crest Natural White 110lb cardstock cut and scored to create an A2 size base. I am using a new shaker kit from Queen and Company called Heartfelt Holiday kit. I have used the fabulous ornament foam shapes and dies to create my shaker. I have also used a paper pad from Queen and Company called All Bundled Up, which has lots of fun elements but most importantly the colors are perfect with this blend! Additionally, I have used some basic shape dies from Stamps Of Life and from Lawn Fawn to pull this all together. I also used Scor Tape as well as Foam Tape to create some dimensionality with my layers, and as a finishing touch, some purple bakers twine also in my stash from Queen and Company.



I really do love everything about this blend and personally may need to grab some more before it is gone!

Happy Holidays

So today I am playing with the fabulous Sparkle Blend mix called Lights In The Forest. I have to be honest, this is such an amazing blend and can be used for so many different things, that it is pretty much a must! I have paired it with this fabulous Stamp Set from Hero Arts called Winter Woods HeroScape. These things together work so well for making an Infinity Shaker, which you all know I love doing. I did use a bunch of inks between stamping and blending, so for my layering I used Catherine Pooler inks in Spruce, Aquatini, Hot Tub, and Stone Blue. I also used for my ink blending Distress Oxides in Black Soot, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Faded Jeans. For my sentiment and my black stamping I used Memento Tuxedo Black. Additionally I used acetate for my shaker panel with one inch wide scor tape to create the infinity shaker and finally some blue glitter cardstock from DCWV and my card base is Classic Crest Natural White 110lb cardstock cut and scored to create an A2 size base.



This is really such a perfect blend for so many things, that I personally may need to grab some more before it is gone!
