I'm kicking off a couple of weeks of projects focusing on embellishments on the Doodlebug Design Blog this week. I have to admit, I have a hoarding issue when it comes to Doodlebug Sprinkles. Original, Glitter, Shaped... I absolutely love them all and I make sure that every project I use them on is "sprinkle worthy." So when the Design Team was challenged to feature Sprinkles and other embellishments I set out to come up with some very "worthy" projects... take a peek...
I love using sprinkles with Doodlebug's Cut Files, they are the perfect way to "dress" them up. I started with the new Sweet Summer Strawberry Margarita SVG file from the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop for my first card. I used papers from the Gingham Linen Petite Prints, Down on the Farm and So Punny 6x6 Pads. I added some Ladybug Glitter Sprinkles to the "dots" on the strawberries, some Cupcake and Bubblegum Glitter Sprinkles for the cheeks and some Beetle Black Sprinkles for the eyes. To finish it off I added a "sugared rim" to my margarita using some Lily White Chunky Glitter.
For my next card, I started with this SVG file for the card base. I added a porthole circle to the front with some sprinkles "rivets" from the Black and White Assortment Glitter Sprinkles Pack. I wanted it to look like my fish were floating so I cut the inserts for the card from transparency material. For my under sea scene I used the Sea Weed SVG from the Under the Sea cut files, one of the Minnows Mini Doodle-pops and some Anchor's Aweigh and Under the Sea Shaped Sprinkles.
For my last card, I started with the Jar of Hearts SVG file from the Flea Market Collection to create a shaker card. I added a few of this flower from the Easter Express collection. To embellish the flowers, I added the smallest sprinkles around the centers (Limeade Glitter Sprinkles, Bumblebee Glitter Sprinkles, Tangerine Glitter Sprinkles and Lily White Sprinkles. I added some larger glitter sprinkles to my Jar for the "marbles" and finished it off with a Ladybug Shaped Sprinkle! The sweet sentiment is a speech bubble from the So Punny This and That Sheet. I cut off the tail, and punched a hole so I could tie it on with twine.
Be sure to stop by the Doodlebug blog over the next couple of weeks for more Embellishing ideas from the Design Team! That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
