Hello! I’ve got a shaker card today that not only uses one of the newest Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground that isn’t even released yet, but it also uses one of the newest stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.

The stencil I used for my background is called Driven Snow, and I had already embossed it on to white cardstock with paste, but I hadn’t colored it yet. At least, not this half. The stencil is 6×9, so you can get two backgrounds out of it. You’ll see the other version later this month. I had also already colored the yeti and birch trees, which are from Clearly Besotted’s Yuletide Yeti set. That was all done with Zigs. I thought these images would work really well with the stenciled background, so I grabbed my Summer Sky Fireworks! Spray from Imagine and sprayed the heck out of the entire background and let it dry.
I grabbed some stamp packaging to create my shaker. I cut it down, added Tear It! Tape adhesive to the back of my panel and removed the adhesive backing from 3 sides. Then, I filled up the shaker with the brand new Blue Ice Sparkle Blend and a bit of Ice Storm, just to bulk it up a bit. Then I removed the last bit of release paper from the tape and sealed up the shaker. As I laid out my colored elements, I thought I needed an additional snow bank so I drew and cut one out. I adhered all of my pieces with Bearly Arts Glue.
On Thursday, November 3rd, I’ll be going Live on the Doodles Paper Playground page to share a sneak peek of the full release. It’ll be at 8PM EST, and I hope you’ll join me.
