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.
Created by Doodles Paper Playground design team member, Annie Collins, this blend is a beautiful harmony of shapes and sizes. Bright, cheery colors include pink, purple, blue and yellow that are offset by black and gold. There are iridescent music notes, adorable clay hearts and heart beads, just to name a few. All these elements and colors were a perfect catalyst for my design.
Just like the musical collaboration of this blend, my card was created using a collaboration of various products. I created the background using Oxide inks with a Vicki Boutin word stencil. The star was cut using a die from Kindred Stamp’s new Card Builder Die set. The guitar is part of the “Groovy Friends” stamp set from Brutus Monroe. I used a sentiment from an old Sizzix set and die cut it with an old Stampin’ Up banner die. The sentiment was heat embossed using “Mermaid Tale” embossing powder form Brutus Monroe.
If this blend sings to you, head over to the Sparkle Blends shop and grab yours, along with many other gorgeous blends that are still available.
