Swimming By to Say Hi Shaker Card

When I saw the Ocean View Sparkle Blend mix of sequins and cute little fish from Doodles Paper Playground, I knew I wanted to make an aquarium shaker card with them and this is the result. I die cut the card front aquarium using some Cutplorations stitched rectangle dies and the fish using dies from Penny Black and Impression Obsession. I stamped the cute stamp from Joy's Life on a light blue dp sheet and glued down the die cut fish before creating the shaker with the fun Ocean View DPP mix. Here are a couple more views of the card:

The cute stamp on the inside is also from Joy's Life and I attached a few more IO fish. These shaker cards are so fun to make and I hope you try some with these great sequin mixes from Doodles Paper Playground!

I am entering this card the Anything Goes challenge at Scrapy Land.

Celebrating with Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends!

I am continuing to have fun as a guest designer diva at Doodles Paper Playground designing with their Sparkle Blends which are packages of fun sequin and bead mixes sold exclusively here at White Rose Crafts LLC. 

I used a My Favorite Things Balloon Shaker Die set and Balloon Pouch to make the fun balloon on this card along with a pretty DPP Sparkle Blend mix called "Orange You Glad". I die cut a "celebrate" die from Penny Black and sponged some orange ink on just half of it and attached some confetti orange pieces too. 

On the inside of the card I stamped a fun sentiment from Gina K Designs and added a couple more cake pieces.

Anything Goes or Cards for Boys Challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids!

It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This year, all challenges at SAS4Kids are Anything Goes 4 Kids! We will usually have an alternative theme that you can choose to follow, but are not required to. Create and link any card that is appropriate for a child and your card could be chosen as one of our top three cards and you could join us as a guest dt member on a future challenge.

The theme for this challenge is: Anything Goes 4 Kids OR Cards for Boys! It is not required that you send in your card if you enter our challenges, but our kids would sure love it if you did!

I created a cute card for a special boy using new dies from Karen Burniston. As is always the case with Karen’s dies, the real fun happens when the card is opened:

A castle with a dragon pops up to wish the special boy Happy Birthday! Too cute for your favorite little boy! 

Be sure to check out the rest of the cards from TEAM SAS here and we would love it if you entered our challenge.

Day Three Therm O Web Designer Stencils Easter Card

I have been sharing cards all week made with Therm O Web's new Designer Stencils and I think this is my favorite of the cards I made. I love the look of the positive acetate foiled patterns over the negative foiled patterns die cut with Gina Marie Designs Big and Little Pierced Chain Oval Layered Dies to create these sparkly Easter eggs. I simply attached them to a older Easter dp I had in my stash and my colorful fun Easter card was done. Here is a closeup look at the sparkly Easter eggs:

For more details on how to do these techniques and links to the products used, scroll down here on my blog or watch Monday's video here.

I am entering this card in the Easter/Spring challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday. Thanks for visiting and helping me #share the joy of creativity!

Happy St. Patrick's Day with Doodle's Paper Playground Sparkle Blends

I am so happy to be continuing as a guest designer diva at Doodles Paper Playground and to be able to play some more with their Sparkle Blend sequins available exclusively at White Rose Crafts LLC. The new Test Your Luck sequin and bead mix is perfect for St. Patrick's Day which is this Saturday. I created a four leaf lucky clover shaker card using heart dies from Tonic Studios and then created a shaker in just one of the heart windows where I dumped some of the Test Your Luck Sparkle Blend mix. I attached a little green flower from the mix on each of the other acetate windows just for fun. Here is a close-up look at this fun Sparkle Blend mix:

I added a couple more sequins and a fun sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to the inside of my card. I love how this card turned out! Happy St. Pat's Day everyone!

Having a Play with Therm O Web Stencils Day Two

As I shared yesterday, I recently received the new Therm O Web Deco Foil Designer Stencils and have been playing with different ideas with them. I wondered how it would look to apply Deco Foil Transfer Gel through a pinwheel stencil onto a Gina K Designs Foil-mate and then foil the whole thing with Rainbow Deco Foil and this was the fun result. It is bright and colorful so I thought maybe a kid would like to give it to a special teacher and used some alphabet dies to say "thanks" in the eclipse technique way. The "teacher" die is from Simon Says Stamp. Here is a look from the side to see the "thanks" a bit clearer:

After making a pretty Deco Foil background, there is always so much lovely foil left so I had to use a toner sheet to make another rainbow background that I used in this card:

Foil is always so hard to photograph, but here are a couple more shots including the inside where I used more of that gorgeous rainbow foil:

I used a stitched rectangle die from Stamplorations and a Happy Birthday frame from Memory Box on the front, and a Celebrate die from Tonic Studios and an old candle punch from Martha Stewart on the inside.
