Hello! I have a shaker card to share today that uses one of the newest Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The holiday collection (plus several other brand-new products) was just released yesterday, so if you haven’t gotten a chance to take a look, you should definitely visit the Sparkle Blends Shop on Etsy or, you can watch my full release sneak peek video HERE before you shop. I had to use “Jeweltone Sky” ASAP because it’s my favorite Blend from the new release.
I remembered I had these polar bears from an older Stampendous cling stamp and die set, and since they’re gazing up towards the heavens, I knew they would be perfect for this card. I gave them some super quick coloring with Copics and die cut them out. For my snow bank, I had some old white metallic, shimmery cardstock that looks like it has waves or hills of snow. It’s so perfect for snow.
For my sky, I used some black watercolor paper with some Fine Tec Watercolors to give the look of the Northern Lights. I also flicked on some watered-down white reinker for stars. The “Jeweltone Sky” Sparkle Blend has shades of blue, teal, purple, and maroon, with pops of silver in it. The colors in my sky were chosen to coordinate with the Sparkle Blend. I used a die cut gray frame to top off the scene and I added it to an ivory card base.
I adore how this card came out. It’s just what I was going for. These bears look so happy watching the glistening sky together, don’t they?
