Hello! Have you seen the newest release from Doodles Paper Playground? This release features Hot Cocoa and Sparkle Blends that are perfect for the early-in-the-year celebrations. There is also the “It’s a Party” Sparkle Blend which is appropriate for any birthday, wedding, shower, etc. That’s the Blend I opted to use today to make a fun birthday card that would be great for anyone.
I recently purchased the Pinwheel Party Bundle from The Greetery because it’s full of fun, easy to work with, and, just like the “Let’s Party” Sparkle Blend, it works for anyone and many types of celebrations. I inked up several of the pinwheels using Memento Inks. Each pinwheel uses the same color twice….once with heavy inking, and once with a lighter touch.
The Pinwheel Party Bundle comes with a sentiment stamp and die set, which I chose to use to create my shaker window. I used the shadow die to create the window out of striped cardstock, and then I stamped the sentiment on simple white cardstock underneath. The “Let’s Party” Sparkle Blend is made mostly of white and black sequins, with opalescent clear and a smattering of larger, brightly colored sequins in the shapes of cakes, balloons, and confetti.
I was a little worried that there would be too many stripes, but the large window, the varying colors, and the different angles of the stripes, keep it from being too overpowering. It’s fun, and definitely screams party to me. Tomorrow, why not hang out with me and Amber, the owner of Doodles Paper Playground a FB Live on 1/21/21 at 8PM EST on the Doodles Paper Playground FB Page. We’ll be making a tulle shaker card, using the Pinwheel Party Bundle, so you’ll get to see it in action. Meanwhile, why not join the Sparkle Blends Fan Club on FB and share your sequin-filled projects with us there? You can also head over to the Sparkle Blends Shop on Etsy to see all of the available Blends. Use my discount code, “ALISON10” to save 10% off of your purchase, not including Bundles. I’d like to also mention that this card is part of #JustStashJanuary , where the participants are only using products from their stash, and not buying anything (except adhesive) new.
