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.

Guest Post by Designing Diva: Karen Hasheck - Glazed Distress Oxide Background
Glazed Distress Oxide Background Karen's Kreative Kards
Using Doodles Paper Playground: Sparkle Blends Peacock Pizzazz & Lilac Luster
Happy Thursday everyone! My name is Karen Hasheck and I am honored to be back today as a Doodles Paper Playground Guest Designing Diva! Sometimes the colors in a background of a card are perfectly complimented by mixing two colors of Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends.
When I was happy
with the layered background, I applied Ranger Distress Micro Glaze to brighten
and show each layer beautifully as I learned how to do from videos by Jennifer
McGuire and Tim Holtz. I die cut the stitched square “So Very Kind” using a die
from Lil’Inker and then created the shaker box with pretty sequins from the new
Lilac Luster and Peacock PizzazzSparkle Blends. I added some stitched
butterflies cut with a die set also from Lil’ Inker and added some pretty
sequins to them to finish the card.
