The sound of a shaker card

Hi crafty friends, you hear that? Listen closely and you will hear beautiful music and Sparkle Blends. Today’s card inspiration came from one of Doodles Paper Playground’s February release blends called “Annie’s Music of the Heart.” This mix is sure to be music to your ears (and crafts!).

Created by Doodles Paper Playground design team member, Annie Collins, this blend is a beautiful harmony of shapes and sizes. Bright, cheery colors include pink, purple, blue and yellow that are offset by black and gold. There are iridescent music notes, adorable clay hearts and heart beads, just to name a few. All these elements and colors were a perfect catalyst for my design.

Just like the musical collaboration of this blend, my card was created using a collaboration of various products. I created the background using Oxide inks with a Vicki Boutin word stencil. The star was cut using a die from Kindred Stamp’s new Card Builder Die set. The guitar is part of the “Groovy Friends” stamp set from Brutus Monroe. I used a sentiment from an old Sizzix set and die cut it with an old Stampin’ Up banner die. The sentiment was heat embossed using “Mermaid Tale” embossing powder form Brutus Monroe.

If this blend sings to you, head over to the Sparkle Blends shop and grab yours, along with many other gorgeous blends that are still available.
