You're Super Sweet Card with Doodles Paper Playground

Hello Crafty Friends -  I am here with a fun shaker card featuring the Sweet Treats Sparkle Blends

This card is full of sweet treat inside and out. I created a mini bag full of candy treats.

A pastel blend of sprinkle shaped beads,
artificial Fimo sprinkles, hearts, stars, 
cup sequins, iridescent crystals and 
cupcake & ice cream cone shaped Fimo shapes
is a fun addition to any birthday card or project!

Here's my card with the Sparkle Blends at the bottom of the mini treat bag. 

Showing the Sparkle Blends

So, let's get started on the card.

First, I stamped and colored the images from Skull and Cross Buns Retro Sweeties Stamp set. 
Then, die cut a window in my mini treat bag using a small square die. 
I added a piece of chipboard inside of the bag so not to cut through the bag.

Next, I adhered clear plastic to the die cut square. 
I used a piece of packaging, slid it into the bag and glue it in place.

Then, I adhered some of the little Retro Candy stamped images to the inside of the mini bag. Next, I fill the bag with the Sparkle Blends: Sweet Treat and I added a bit of Recollections Brand Glitz glitter. Seal up the mini treat bag.

Then, I matted white cardstock onto medium purple cardstock for my card front. I adhered the mini treat bag to the card front and embellished with the rest of the colored images. I stamped sentiment onto white cardstock and colored the word SWEET with some Distress Markers and matted it onto black cardstock. Then, I adhered the sentiment on foam adhesive.

 Now the card is complete! 

This is a fun and colorful card perfect for your sweetie, a child and a friend.

Poetic Petals Card Set with A2Z Scrapbooking

As we are nearing the holiday season most of us will be invited to parties and functions. A hostess gift is always a nice thing to bring and give. Or perhaps you are already working on your gifts for the upcoming season.
A simple set of small cards perfect for quick thank you's or hello's is a nice and easy thing to have ready to give.
I created this set of card using the Poetic Petals Digital from Hero Arts Poetic Petals Digital from Hero Arts  which is perfect for these small cards.

These are the cards I created. I kept them simple to fit the current challenge over on A2Z Scrapbooking. 

First, I resized the flowers and printed them onto alcohol marker friendly paper. Then I colored them with my Spectrum Nior Markers (see below for colors).

Second, I cut 4 pieces of heavy weight white cardstock to 3" X 8". Score at 4". Then, I put a circle color from Distress Oxide ink. (you can use any ink here) that compliments the flowers. This will provide a landing spot for the flowers.

Third, Place foam adhesive behind the flowers and place onto the circle of color. Then, add some finishing touches with some Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops. Repeat for all cards. 

Now you have a full set of cards. Add some mini envelops and place them in a gift card box. You have the perfect hostess gift.

I used Besties Fluffy Sunshine Girl - I created a Bendy card. Jen of Koala T Crafts did a tutorial recently you can find it here. I adapted mine a bit, but the concept is the same.

 Close-up of the card.

 Side views of the card so you can see the crane and the little jumping fish.

For my next card I used Besties Twinkle Toes Troll - I created a layered card. I did a technique call Distress Oxide Ink water stamping that Jennifer Mcguire showed on her blog and on her YouTube Channel  Jennifer Mcguire Ink recent for my background.

 Changed the lighting so you can see the background better.

I hope you join the challenge it's a good one!
