Hello and welcome back! Today I have a really fun shaker car using the Green with Envy Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground and lots of adorable Lawn Fawn. My plan was to create a little scene with the critters. I wanted to have the shaker be part of the grass, so this Sparkle Blend was perfect. These guys clearly like to spend a lot of time together!
The shaker was actually the first thing I created for the card, as I wasn’t quite sure how everything else was going to fall into place. I used an older die from Stampendous to cut the grass at the top of my shaker, and used 3 layers of paper, and lots of foam tape to complete it. For the window, I just used an X-Acto Knife to cut out a couple of rectangles for the top 2 layers. The shaker has a lot of dimension, so it created a nice foreground for my card.
Next up was the tree trunk from the Forest Feast stamp set, and I stamped it on to Kraft paper and embossed it with Clear Bark embossing powder from Stampendous. Then I chose my critters.The jackalope is from Believe in Yourself, the gray bear and bird are from Love You S’more, and the fox and brown bear are from Party Animal.
Look at all of the shiny goodness in the Sparkle Blend! I love the different shades of green, the tiny stars, and the bits of opalescent sequin flowers. I think it’s a wonderful mix! For my clouds, I just freehand cut them and added faces from various Lawn Fawn sets. I popped one of them up with foam.
This was such a blast to make! I’m entering it into the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #29, which has a mood board to draw inspiration from. The grass really got my mind going, as well has the hand making the heart. That’s more symbolic in my card though. As a reminder, you can only get Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground through White Rose Crafts LLC. Each blend is limited edition, so snag what you love while you can! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
