Primarily a cardmaking and papercrafting blog featuring both my own creative designs-including the products and techniques I used to create them-as well as projects by the Sparkle Blends Designing Divas team and other Guest Designers. I welcome comments, design suggestions, and questions, but I do ask that they remain respectful and kind.

Andrea Shell Guest Designing for Doodles Paper Playground with Sparkle Blends "Unicorn"
Hi there! I'm thrilled to be guest designing for Doodles Paper Playground and White Rose Crafts. My sweet friend, Amber MacMurtry, recently asked me to try some of her gorgeous sequin mixes, which are sold exclusively by White Rose Crafts. I have to tell you: These mixes are so colorful and cool! Amber has put together some truly unique mixes, and I will definitely be using more in the future!
For this card, I just had to play with the coolest mix ever - Unicorn Sparkle Blend. I paired it with this cute dog from Mama Elephant, which I colored with Copics.
I ink-blended a panel of Bristol paper with Tumbled Glass distress ink and MFT Stamps' Cloud Stencil. The balloon shape was die-cut with Whimsy Stamps' Big Balloon Celebrations Die. To create the pink of the balloon, I inked up my card with Picked Raspberry distress ink.
After assembling my shaker, I drew the balloon string with a black Sharpie and popped up the doggie with foam tape. Using my MISTI, I stamped a sentiment from the Mama Elephant set in black.
I hope you enjoyed my project! There are many more gorgeous mixes on the White Rose Crafts website, so be sure to check them out!
Please help me give Andrea a huge Thank You for helping to promote my new Sparkle Blends product line with her super cute shaker card! I would love if you also check out her Featured Guest Designer blog post over on the White Rose Crafts Blog, using the our "Love Potion" Sparkle Blends.
