I am very happy to share that I have been chosen as a guest Doodles Paper Playground Designer Diva for the month of February! I received and was able to design with each of the five February releases of the sequin mixes from Doodles Paper Playground sold exclusively at White Rose Crafts LLC here.
I love to make shaker cards with unique and fun sequin mixes and I chose the bright Crown Jewels mix to make this Minion Cupcake Shaker card. Here is the description and a picture of this Sparkle Blend Crown Jewels mix:
"Jewel tones have been on trend for awhile, and this year is no different. This bold combination of ultraviolet, teal, ruby red, hunter green, coppery orange & gold is sure to fit the bill with its variety of bright metallic cup sequins, assorted sized star confetti, sparkly faceted crystals & prismatic giant glitter in both hexagon and diamond shapes. You can’t go wrong with this striking blend."
To make my minion cupcake shaker card I first cut the cupcake opening with dies from Karen Burniston's Cupcake Pop-Up Die Set. I attached acetate behind the cupcake window and stamped the fun cupcake sentiment using a new stamp from So Suzy Stamps. I stamped confetti from a new Gina K Designs/Therm O Web stamp set called Time to Celebrate. Stuart (the minion) with Cupcake is also from So Suzy Stamps and I stamped and paper pieced him before attaching him with mounting tape to raise. I picked out some of the colorful stars in the Crown Jewels mix to attach to the cardfront.
I attached 2 layers of mounting tape around the cupcake opening and dumped some of the colorful Crown Jewels Sparkle Blend mix into the well before sealing it up with a piece of white cardstock. Then I layered the shaker piece onto a blue cardfront. Here is a look at the card "all shook up" and the inside of the card with another fun sentiment from So Suzy Stamps:
I am entering this card in the sequins challenge at Double D Challenges and the Anything Goes challenge at Scrapy Land (used Karen Burniston dies).
