I used Strawberry Jude Stamps layering Holly Jolly set.
These leaves had 5 layers.
On the ones on the right I used 5 different colors. 
On the ones on the left, I used clear heat embossing to create the last highlight.
I did about 8 pairs of leaves and 5 sets of holly berries.


I die cut my base panel and my shaker window frame.


I white heat embossed my sentiment so it would pop against the black background.


I attached my base panel to a top folding card base.



I used a double layer of foam tape on my shaker frame.
I measured out my sequins and placed the shaker frame.


I added my holly leaves and berries.
I also added some sequins around my sentiment just to tie it all together.

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆



I had quite a few holly leaves still left so I put together this card, using the leafs to make a wreath and used some of the glitter sequins to decorate it!


For this shaker I used the January Garnet Birthstone Sparkle Blend collection 
from Doodle Paper Playground.

Valentine Angel - HeartCraft Paper

Valentine Angel


☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

This month I am guest designing over at HeartCraft Paper.
This image is from the December release, isn't it adorable!?!



I started by printing out my image and die cutting 
it with a stitched rectangle die.


I colored the image in with Copic markers and use glitter pens on the hearts.
I used a wink of Stella on the wings because you can't 
have an angel with plain wings!


I die cut a sparkly background and adhered it to my card base.


I place my colored image panel onto my card. . . 


I added this love that I die cut from the same background paper and added a few glitter enamel dots at the top of the card to balance out the hearts.

HeartCraft Paper has super cute images, SVG files and also 

Make sure you check out everything they 
offer while looking at the new release!

There is also a Facebook group where you can share your 
creations and be inspired by others sharing theirs!

Happy Holidays Shaker Ornament - Doodles paper Playground

Happy Holidays


☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

I used Lawn Fawn Ready, Set, Snow stamp set and shaker add on dies 
for this project.


I stamped and die cut the base and the snow globe frame.
I used a piece of patterned paper that had little grey snow flakes on it.


Then I added the snowmen. 
These little guys are so cute!


I added color to the snowmen and the globe base with copic markers


I added the acetate and a double layer of foam tape to the frame, 
measured my sequins out and I put the frame in place.


I die cut a second base to put on the back.
This hides the ink that bled through from coloring and also 
gives a place to attach the string.


I had originally had a different idea for the sentiment on this but then 
I decided I wanted to put it on the globe base. 
I stamped it in regular black ink.



For this shaker I used the Icicle Sparkle Blend from Doodle Paper Playground.

I love the glitter sequins in this blend.
There are more great Sparkle Blends and a large assortment of items for 
all your crafty projects over at White Rose Crafts!

Snapping Good Time - HeartCraft Paper

Snapping Good Time


☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Here is another card I made with this cute gingerbread man!
He is perfect for Christmas cards!



I printed out the image and sentiment and die cut 
it to fit on the inside of the card.
I colored it with copic markers and added red and green stickles then let it dry.  


For the front I stamped a sentiment on a die cut banner.


I created a window in my card base and base panel so 
that the gingerbread man would be visible.


I added a base panel to the inside of the card as well so 
there wasn't empty space around my panel.


I added the stamped banner to the front and also added 
some glitter enamel dots.


Here is the inside. . . I love how it turned out!

Snowman Shaker - Doodles Paper Playground

Sending Joy For the Holidays


☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆


I started with creating my base panel.
I used Mission Gold watercolors on some watercolor paper and did 
blue ombre with a pearly white paint splatter


I die cut some snowy hills and added some blue glitter heat embossing to the tops.
I stamped my images, colored the hat with copics and used a patterned paper for the scarf.


I layered the snowy hills and used a die to trim the bottom 
so they wouldn't poke out of the shaker.


I assembled and added the snowman.


I white heat embossed my sentiment.


I laid out my sequins. . . 


I used two circle dies to create my shaker frame. 
I used glittery silver paper.
I attached it with a double layer of foam tape so that there is 
plenty of room for my shaker bits!



For this shaker I used the Snow Cool Sparkle Blend from Doodle Paper Playground.

I love how there are several different sized snowflakes in this blend.
There are more great Sparkle Blends and a large assortment of items for 
all your crafty projects over at White Rose Crafts!
