Hello! It’s time for another new release hop with Doodles Paper Playground! We’ve got 6 new blends to share with you, and I, together with the rest of the Doodles Paper Playground Design Team, have joined forces with Gail Tasker–you may know her as Ionabunny–our guest designer for the months of December and January! We can’t wait to see more of what she has to share with us all! To see detailed descriptions of each of the December Sparkle Blends release, check out our release blog post! And yes, there are prizes to be won! Be sure to go to the bottom of this post to find out how you can win! Here’s my card.
Today is my daughter’s 10th birthday. Double digits!!! I had to user some Sparkle Blends for her birthday card, of course. This lovely Blend is called Icicle. It’s frosty and sweet and she loves it. Although truthfully, she loves ALL of the Sparkle Blends!
I just bought a die set from Avery Elle which apparently is old, because I can’t seem to find it online. But, banner dies are readily available from many companies, if you’re looking to recreate this card, you should be able to with little trouble. To cut out the banners, I first cut the one in the center, then the sides. I used a Diagonal Stripe Stencil from Simon Says Stamp with Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. My sentiment is from Gina K Designs.
Behind my shaker windows, I used Lawn Fawn’s Pixie Dust Sparkle Cardstock. I LOVE that cardstock! I also used Blue Shimmer Paper from Craft Creations. These papers really add a ton of shine in the shaker windows. They also make the Sparkle Blends really stand out! I made my card base out of gray cardstock.
