Sending all my love

Who doesn’t love to send love? I certainly do! How perfect is Doodle Paper Playgrounds “Love Letters” Sparkle Blend. This is an adorable accent to any love you send! It’s loaded with love letters, hearts, beads, sparkles and sequins. In a shaker or even just glued around a card as accents, it makes sending love easy and fun.

I used the new “Dotted Heart” die set from Brutus Monroe to create this little heart shaped note. The red glitter paper is also from Brutus Monroe. The sentiment and puffins were perfectly paired with this love-filled blend. This stamp set called “Stud Puffin” along with the Heart Shaker Tag Die are both from Lawn Fawn. I used Prisma Color pencils to color the puffins. The sentiment was stamped in Real Red ink from Stampin’ Up.

Head over to the Sparkle Blends shop to order “Love Letters” Sparkle Blends in time to send some love this Valentine’s Day!


You scream, I scream, we all scream for…COFFEE!

A few months ago I finally tried my hand at no line coloring. I grabbed my ZIG Clean Color markers and started off with two little caffeine loving cuties from The Greeting Farm. Meet my friends Latte Anya and Cafe Ian. Now, since I am a hoarder of all things crafty and cute, I had this amazing paper from ColorPlay called “The Daily Grind by Becky Fleck.” As soon as I started playing, I quickly had buyer’s remorse. I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT MORE!!! Ugh, so cute.

Anyway, when I found out about the blog hop over at Coffee Loving Cardmakers, I knew it was time to give these two a home.

So I grabbed my scissors and begun fussy cutting away. Once Anya & Ian were ready to go, I tore through all my “coffee themed” supplies to figure out what was next. Since I was in the mood to make a shaker, I grabbed “Breakfast at Tiffy’s” Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The colors worked perfect with what I had going so far. I have a feeling this color palette will show up again in a future design. I chose a sentiment from a retired Stampin’ Up set called Coffee Cafe. This is one of those sets that I tend to use a lot. If you followed along for DPP’s May release Blog Hop, you saw I used it with the new Spill the Bubble Tea Sparkle Blends. All the cardstock and metallic thread are from Stampin’ Up and fine white embossing powder is from Ranger. As you can see, I sometimes get a little obsessed with shimmer and bling. Some may say a little too much. I don’t know who though. What do you think?
