Happy Little Flurries

Greetings! I have a new shaker card to share today that uses one of the newest Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. It's called "Happy Little Flurries," and it has the cahhhhh-yutest (cutest) little kawaii clouds in it. Like seriously, they're adorable. You'll be able to see one of them in my second photo. Since this Blend is focused on snow and the sky, I decided to make a fun little outdoor scene with some Llamas from Stampendous.
I colored two of the llamas and the mountain scene from the "Llama Sweaters" stamp set with my Zig Clean Color Markers. After I fussy cut them all out, I decided I wanted my llamas on the outside of the shaker, while the mountains and clouds were going to go inside. I used simple oval die from Elizabeth Craft Designs for my window. I love the stitched detail that the die leaves behind. I ink blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide just around the shaker window.
*Side note: see how the llama on the right has his tongue sticking out? I glued that fimo snowflake to the outside of my shaker window, so that it looks like he's trying to catch it.
Inside my shaker window, I tore some double sided blue cardstock (it has different shades of blue on either side) to create my ground. I love the effect of hills that it gave. I also found a really old scrap of Basic Grey paper that was perfect for a snowy sky. Then I added lots of my "Happy Little Flurries" Sparkle Blend inside the window. There are some really fun shapes and very pretty colors in this mix. If you'd like to see an even better look at this and all of the other new release Blends, please check out my FB Live Video HERE.
I added a few additional snowflakes to the outside (look at how different they are from each other!) with On Point Glue. I mounted the shaker panel to a white card base, after I inked the edges with a teal ink.

I love how this card turned out. I think it's silly, but also kinda pretty. That's due to the lovely "Happy Little Flurries" Sparkle Blend, of course. Have you visited the brand new Sparkle Blends Shop on Etsy yet? Head on over to see all of the Blends that are currently available. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
