There are more prizes up for grabs over on the Stampendous Blog, so make sure you hop on over there, too!


We'd love for you to hop along with us all weekend. Members of both design teams will be posting projects all weekend, so here are the Hop Links and Schedule! 
Please leave some comment love on each post for entries to win prizes! The more comments you leave, the more entries you get (up to one per post). 

Giveaway Rules: You must be at least 18 to enter. US residents only, please, due to high shipping costs. Giveaway will close at 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, November 17th, 2019 & I will select 3 winners at random from all comments. Winners will be posted on the Doodles Paper Playground & Sparkle Blends Fan Club Facebook pages, as well as here on the blog, no later than Tuesday the 19th. Winners will have 5 days to email with their mailing address to claim their prizes. Any unclaimed prizes will be redrawn. 


I've got the first of my 3 inspiration projects to share with you, today! I instantly fell in love with this cheeky Santa Wink cling stamp set as soon as I saw it!

I went super simple with this first card, stamping Santa in alcohol marker friendly ink onto a panel of smooth white cardstock, measuring 3.75 x 5 inches. I colored him with Nuvo Creative Pens before stamping that fun sentiment in the opposite, top corner. I mounted the panel with 1mm foam mounting tape on a dark red, A2 top folding card base layered with a beautiful poinsettia patterned paper from Echo Park's I Love Christmas pack. A sprinkle of sequin bling from our Boughs of Holly Sparkle Blend (October 2018 Release) finishes off this clean & layered design, perfectly.

Stampendous has TONS of awesome Holiday products in their catalog, so make sure you pop over to their website and check out what they've got to offer! 


As an added Bonus, our exclusive retailer,
White Rose Crafts is having an AWESOME
Sparkle Blends Sale, this weekend only!! 
All of our Blends are limited edition; so, if you've had your eye on any of our current collection, now is the perfect time to grab them before they're gone for good! This is the best price we've ever offered, and it probably won't come around again!
