Sparkle N Sprinkle May Reveal

Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's
 May 1 New Reveal Blog Hop!

 This month we are doing something a little different.  Instead of releasing new stamp sets, all the Designers have been creating projects with Dreamweaver
stencils, using various techniques and products.

Be sure to visit the SNS Blog all month long, as well as the Designers' blogs (you can click on the Designers' names to go directly to their blogs) to see different techniques used with the stencils. Each Designer always posts 2 different projects to the SNS Blog and 4 different projects to their personal blogs each month.  
Some of the techniques you see throughout the month is dry embossing with your stencil; double glitter technique; combining embossing pastes with glitter, embossing powders, flock, and/or guilded flakes; using the embossing paste as a resist; double embossing paste technique and lots of other fun ideas.

 All Dreamweaver stencils, soap, and embossing pastes are 20% off until May 3.  So once you finish the blog hop, head on over to the store and start shopping.
Large Feather is the stencil featured with this month's Technique Video Kit.

On May 3, one GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be selected from the comments left on the Designers' blogs.  Please leave a comment with each Designer in order to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  You never know who the Mystery Designer will be that has the winning comment.

The winner will be able to choose $55 worth of any products listed under the Stencils and Templates category, plus mica powders (Pearl Ex) and of course, glitters, embossing powders, flock, and sticker paper or adhesive sheets.

The Grand Prize Winner will be announced on June 3 on the SNS Facebook page, the Designer's blogs, and here on the SNS Blog.

We are pleased to have Diane and Ashley, two of our 2015 Guest Designers,  joining us again this month. They will be our Guest Designers for the months of April, May, and June.

The Blog Hop order this month is:
 Eret (you are here)
 (*Tip: if you have difficulty with a particular link, try clicking on the Designer's blog title to send you to their Home page.)

We love reading your comments and hope that we have inspired you as well.  If you can not leave a comment for some reason, please email with your comment and the name of the blog or the Designer you are commenting about.

The Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge also begins today.  There are lots of prizes and recognition badges.  Come check out how you can become a SNS Featured Artist as well.  The theme is always Anything Goes using Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder, and/or Flock.

It was very difficult to choose which stencil and which technique to use. They are all very beautiful and fun to play with. As first card this month I decided to use Dreamweaver Wisteria stencil with glitters. Here's a video tutorial by Jill for this technique.

Super Adhesive Sheets are fabulous for covering large areas with glitters. You can cut it as big as you need. I used Meadow Spark glitter for leaves and Lacy Lilac for the blooms. After removing the stencil I covered rest of the sheet with Waterfall glitter.

This lovely dragonfly is from Simply Beautiful Stamp Set #589. It is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with markers. I added Brushable Glue to the wings and covered them with Lavender Iris glitter.
Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Meadow Spark glitter.

The sentiment is also from Simply Beautiful Stamp Set #589. It is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black to the white card stock. I inked the edges with Summer Sky ink.
Only embellishments I used on this card are little Blossom Sequins.

We hope you enjoy the New Reveal Blog Hop as much as we do.  Thanks for joining us and remember to comment on each of the Designers' blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  
Last month Diane was the Mystery Designer with the winning comment.  Wonder who it will be this month???? 
The next stop on our blog hop is Anne.
