Sequin Clusters - Doodles Paper Playground

Sequin Clusters


☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

So my project this week isn't so much the card but the 
embellishments on the card. 

I was surfing Facebook and came across a post about sequin clusters.
Basically it is where you glue sequins together to make a bigger embellishment.

I knew I had to try it right away.

I found that the sparkle blends are actually perfect to use while making these because they have lots of different sizes and pieces in the blends.

My favorite pieces are the micro glass beads, you can see them on the yellow cluster. . . I think they look so good!




☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

I made a super quick card with the 
 sequin cluster that I made with the Love Hearts sparkle blend.

I love that you can still add single sequins from the blend 
and they match perfectly!




☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

For this project I used the Love Hearts sparkle blend.

You're My Lucky Charm - Doodles Paper Playground


You're My Lucky Charm



☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆


I stamped all my images from the Lawn Fawn Stamp set My Lucky Charm 
and colored them with copic markers. 


I cut my panels and stamped my sentiment.


I added a single layer of foam tape and placed my images on the top panel, 
it is much easier to add them before assembling your shaker. 


I measured out my sequins and added the top panel. 
I also added a few sequins to the front of the card for that extra sparkle!

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

For this project I used the Good Luck Charm sparkle blend.

I love this blend! Green is my favorite and I love the bits of gold in it!

Happy Birthday Shaker - Doodles paper Playground

Happy Birthday Shaker


☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆


I started by using the balloon frame die and a marching 
circle die to cut my pieces.
I used liquid glue to attached the acetate to my frame so that 
I could move it around to get it to line up easily.


I used a double layer of foam tape on one side and 
filled the shaker with sequins.


I placed the second panel, enclosing the shaker window.


I probably could have added more sequins. . . . 


I die cute this sentient and placed it on the front of the shaker.


To finish it off I added a piece of twine for the string of the balloon.



For this project I used Grandmas Knit Sweater sparkle blend.

I love the colors in this blend, I really love how the purple looks
 with the orange and blue!

You're A Star - Doodles Paper Playground

You're A Star


☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆


I started by picking out some distress oxides that would match the 
Happy Little Flurries Sparkle Blend.

I blended them onto a panel and added some water droplets.



I used the same colors and water colored my little images so that they would match perfectly!


Then I thought that the back ground had to much pink in it for this sequin mix so I used the same colors and created a splattered back ground. I die cut a star window for my shaker area.


I added acetate and a single layer of foam tape so that it is more mail friendly!


I die cut the same frame from my first panel and 
placed it in the shaker window. 
I added my sequins and placed the panel on the card base.


I added my images and a sentiment banner.
I also added sequins from the mix to the front of the card.

I couldn't leave my other panel so I created a matching card with 
the Sweet Treats Sparkle Blend!

Make A Wish - Doodles Paper Playground

Make A Wish



☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆


For this  card I used a panel that I already had started and 
knew it would be great with this sequin blend.



First I added green and purple Distress Oxides to the panel and then put some chipped sapphire around the edges and black soot to deepen the colors. 


I did several layers of water splashed with some perfect pearls and a layer of 
white gesso to finish the galaxy look.


OK, so I saw this new way to create a full front shaker card.
I cut my acetate to be half an inch bigger than my panel on both sides.
Each side was scored at 1/4 of inch. 


I used the 1/8 score tape on the edges.


You place the panel on the back of the acetate and fold over the edges, 
basically creating a pouch with the acetate and your front panel.


I added the sequins to the pouch and folded over the last edge.
Then I just placed it on the card front and you have a full front shaker card!


Here is the same card I made using a frame and foam tape.
The acetate pouch I think makes the card less bulky also, 
a better way for shaker cards that you are going to mail?

I like this new shaker method and look for ward to using it in different ways!

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆



I used the Nebula blend on these cards.
I love all the green in this blend, the printed sequins and 
the glow in the dark stars!!
