"Shake It! You Know You Wanna" with Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends and Therm O Web

Today I am honored to be a Doodles Paper Playground Guest Designer Diva on their blog and here on mine. I love making shaker cards and the new sequin mixes released this month and available here at White Rose Crafts LLC totally inspired me! Take a look at the Ocean View Sparkle Blend I used in this shaker card: 

Here is the description of this Ocean View blend:

“I don’t know about you, but I love a pretty water themed card or layout & we wanted to create a blend that evokes those ever changing colors. This vivid combination of cup sequins, round confetti, faceted crystals and micro beads in cobalt, aqua, teal and just a touch of light blue was just the look we were going for. We added a sprinkling of dolphin shaped confetti in a variety of colors to complete the effect.”

I am saving the cute dolphins for water themed card I will make later. I went with monochromatic blues and punny “shake it” – you know you wanna” stamps from Sudio Calico for this shaker card. I am also using a brand new product from Therm O Web called Clear Designer Toner Sheets which are acetate sheets with patterns of toner on them that can be run through a hot laminator with any foil you choose so our shaker acetate fronts have a pretty pattern on them. I ran the Doodles Deco Foil Clear Designer Toner Sheet through my hot laminator with a piece of Brilliant Blue Fancy Foil, then die cut the clear acetate shaker front. I laid the leftover foil on a Deco Foil Toner Sheet and ran it through the laminator again, then cut the stitched circles using a die set from Lil’ Inker. To see these patterned acetate sheets and these techniques in action, check out my video here.

Here is a picture of the sequin mix “all shook up”. I created a well with two layers of mounting tape, dumped in the Ocean View sequin mix and sealed it with a white circle on which I stamped “shake it”. I continued the theme on the inside of the card with more acetate circles and a celebration sentiment from Gina K Designs:
