Hello! Today I have a really fun shaker card that uses one of the newest Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground, called Coffee & Donuts. I knew right away that I wanted to focus on the donut aspect of the Blend, so I printed out You Drive Me Glazy from Stamp Anniething and grabbed their Party Time stencil too.

I colored the girl with Copics. The Sparkle Blend is neutral, so you can use any colors you want with it. I fussy cut her out, leaving a thin white border around her.
*Pro Tip: I didn’t love how much white space was in the negative space of the donuts, but I didn’t want to try to cut them out. Instead, I grabbed some scrap of the same Kraft cardstock I used for my background, and used a hole punch to cut out two circles. I glued them in the middle of the donuts, and now it looks like I removed the white!
Based on the Copics I used, I stenciled the icing part of the Party Time stencil with a mix of Kitsch Flamingo and Saltwater Taffy Distress Paint. I used the paint because I’m having some shoulder troubles, and I didn’t want to make things worse by ink blending such a large space. I used 2 coats of paint. Some leaked under the stencil, so I had to alter a few drips, but I think it looks great. Once the paint dried, I used Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide to get the sprinkles on. This doesn’t require a lot of work, but I did use a mini ink blending tool for a heavier application without extra work. I also used a White Posca Pen to add some highlights.
You can see the adorable little donuts that are in the new Coffee and Donuts Sparkle Blend. As I mentioned before, this is a neutral blend, so there’s lots of shades of brown in it, so it’s very easy to work with. Because I have a smaller shaker window (made with THIS Lawn Fawn die set), I didn’t use all of the elements in the Blend, but you can get a good idea of how it looks overall.
I added the donut paper from Stamp Anniething’s Bake Shop Paper Pad and a sentiment from the Life is What You Bake It stamp set from their Kawaii Cuties line.
This card is totally adorable. I love the colors and that sweet chibi digi. It was fun to use donuts as such an prominent theme on the card. Please be sure to check out the newest release from Doodles Paper Playground and use my code, ALISON10. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
