Sparkle and Shine Challenge + Good Luck (Sequin Shaker and Paper Piecing)

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing a card and video in honor of the very first Sparkle and Shine challenge blog. I will have more information about this challenge blog at the end of this blog post. So be sure to keep on reading! πŸ™‚


You all know that I love playful stamps. The new release from Lawn Fawn comes with many cute stamps, but the Let’s Play set has won my heart. I colored all of the images using Copics. Since I wanted a little bit of extra dimension inside of the shaker card, I papier pieced the bodies of the cute critters.


Talking about paper piecing, this is a fun and easy technique that I have been a fan of ever since I first started making cards. It’s a perfect way to use up your scraps (or just full sheets of patterned paper). I paper pieced the slide using patterned paper from the Day Dreamer pad from Dear Lizzy. An oldie, but goodie.

Shaker cards are my thing. Whenever I fill up a shaker, I feel so happy. Something about picking out sequins is just absolutely wonderful. πŸ™‚ This time I filled up my sequin shaker using Pretty Pink Posh sequins. I used some brand new sequins that released today! I have links to all of the sequins and beads I used in the supply list below. πŸ™‚

The Sparkle and Shine challenge blog is a new one in blog land owned by Angel Johns and my friend Laurel Beard. They will be posting bi-weekly challenges that focus on sequins. These challenges are sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh and Winnie & Walter. Today I am making a card for them as a Pretty Pink Posh design team member. Later this month, I’ll be making a project for them as a Winnie & Walter design team member. After that, I may or may not be guest designing with them. *wink*Β For each challenge, Angel and Laurel will be sharing an inspiration picture that you’ll need to use as an inspiration for your project. The image inspired me to create a “good luck” card. πŸ™‚ Visit the Sparkle and Shine challenge blog by clicking HERE.
