Watermelon Slice

Hey everyone! Together with the Doodles Paper Playground design team, I am participating in the August Sparkle Blends Release Inspiration Blog Hop! There were 12 amazing new Sparkle Blends in this release & I am so excited to share some of them with you!

Make sure you head over to the Sparkle Blends Shop & check out Pizza Party, Kiss A Lot Of Frogs, Pineapple Garden, Watermelon, Use Your Emoji-nation, Wonderland, Flutter By Butterfly, Grown Up Grape Juice, Bee Creative, Baby Shark, Citrus Tornado, & Ladybird. If you act quickly, there even a few discounted Release Bundles left for order that include 2 free gifts & you will receive a pack of Glow In The Dark Bubbles with every order of $10 or more (while supplies last)!

Today I am playing around with the brand new Watermelon Sparkle Blend pack. Since I am still in the middle of a cross country move, I am still crafting light, and do not have the proper supplies to make a cool shaker card, so today I am trying something a little different.

I started by die cutting a piece of printed watermelon paper with an embossed die.

I adhered the printed paper onto an A2 card frame. Then using a pencil, I sketched a slice of watermelon.

I filled in the meat of the watermelon sketch with some glossy accents.

I dumped a bunch of the Watermelon Sparkle Blend onto the liquid adhesive. Then I pressed the sequins firmly into the adhesive.

Using my finger, I pressed the sequins into the lines of the sketch.

I then pulled out my color pencils and colored in the rind of the watermelon.

I then stamped a fun sentiment onto a scrap of white cardstock and adhered the cardstock onto the card frame. Using a few more sequins, I added a little more bling around the sentiment.

Yes, this card is a little top heavy, but wouldn’t you just love to receive all this fun! And I think this is a really fun way to use Sparkle Blends in a different way.

  1. Brilliant! I love how you added Glossy Accents to hold the Sparkle Blends. I never thought to do that! It really makes it stand out from the rest of the watermelons. Too cute!
