Hello! Welcome to the very first Sparkle Blends Blog Hop for Doodles Paper Playground. The DDP Design Team, as well as the White Rose Crafts LLC Team is going to be showing off projects featuring the newest release of Sparkle Blends. There are lots of prizes along the way! Check this out:
Individual Blog Prizes: On each leg of the hop, I have asked the designers to choose their favorite blend from this release. Those blends will be given away to one lucky commenter on each of their hop blog posts.
The reindeer from the For You, Deer stamp set has a front facing stamp, as well as the “rear” view. Because you’ve got both views,I knew a transparent shaker had to happen. This proved to be a wee bit trickier than I had thought, but it worked out great in the end.
In the photo above, you can see my background through my shaker window. I used DCWV paper with sentiments from the Hero Arts You Are Loved Messages. Here’s a look at the back side of the shaker.
Seriously, how cut is that little reindeer butt?! To make the window, I started off by gluing 2 pieces of acetate with clear liquid glue. That didn’t work because the glue started pushing into the center of the window. So I started over. I tried a double stick tape, but it wasn’t loving the acetate. So then I tried using a Kokuyo tape runner and that finally worked. I sandwiched the window between 2 pieces of cardstock.
I used a second sentiment from the You Are Loved set that was rather appropriate for this card.
This was such a fun card to make, and I am certainly going to make another in this style. Please be sure to check out the full hop link list below. And be sure to leave lots of love along the way to try to win some Sparkle Blends for yourself! My favorite of the new release is Intergalactic, and one lucky person that comments on my blog will win it. Here’s the full link list:
