Hello! I’ve got a shaker card today that uses the brand new “Dino-Mite” Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground. When I was a kid, I wanted to be an archeologist so I could dig up dinosaur bones (I guess I hadn’t heard the term paleontologist yet), so I was stoked to see this Blend.

I pulled out a stamp set and stencil from Sassy & Crafty (sorry, these are no longer available) and started off by coloring the boy on the brontosaurus with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I fussy cut it out and started on my background. For that, I inked up my Gel Press Plate with Cappuccino Delight Kalediacolor Inks from Imagine. Then I rolled the color out with my brayer and pulled a print. Next, I trimmed down the pull and inked up the stencil with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide.
Now let’s look at the Dino-Mite Sparkle Blend. It’s mostly primary colors with some orange and purple. The coolest things are the little sequin dinosaurs and the dinosaur eggs! You can see some in the photo above. I found some fun patterned paper to close up my shaker, and I painted the edge of my white card base with red ink.
It came out super cute, right? I love a good dinosaur themed card. Please visit the Sparkle Blends Shop to see all of the stunning Blends that are currently available.
