Sparkle N Sprinkle August Reveal

Sparkle N Sprinkle and Die-Versions are partnering up for a very special joint blog hop, called the Awareness Campaign.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the newly released Die-Versions dies and the stamp sets revealed in the joint blog hop will go to help with cancer research.  
Almost every one has been touched by cancer is one way or another.  Either you or a family member has had cancer or you know someone who has had cancer.  The Designers from both teams are joining together to help the fight to eradicate all cancers by inspiring you.


Die-Versions is debuting NINE new Die-Versions low profile dies (July 2015 Reveal - scroll down to the end of the reveal) and Sparkle N Sprinkle is revealing THREE stamp sets for this Awareness Campaign.  All stamp sets will be 20% off until Aug 3.

A Grand Prize winner will be chosen from comments left on the Designers' blogs and will be announced on August 4th.  You won't know who the Mystery Designer is until after the Joint Blog hop, so remember to leave a comment with each of the Designers.  

The Winner will be announced on the Die-Versions Facebook page, the Sparkle N Sprinkle Facebook page, the DV Blog, and on the SNS Blog and will receive a $25 gift certificate from BOTH Die-Versions and Sparkle N Sprinkle.

We hope you enjoy the Awareness Joint Blog Hop as much as we have enjoyed creating new projects for it.  We also hope that we have inspired you as well.  Thanks for joining us and remember to comment on each of the Designers' blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  (We love reading them too since your comments also inspire us.)  

The Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge also begins today with lots of prizes and recognition badges.  Find out how you can become a SNS Featured Artist with special recognition on the SNS Facebook page as well as the Creative Challenge Winner's post.  From time to time, we also have special prizes just for Featured Artists.  The theme is always Anything Goes using Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder, and/or Flock.

For my awareness project I chose color Gold. Gold is for Childhood cancer.
I used SNS Awareness #714 stamp set and Dia-Versions Awareness Butterfly (DV-482) die on my card. This sentiment is actually in one row. I stamped it in three parts to get the words below each other.  For the focal point I die cutted Awareness Butterfly out of white cardstock. Butterfly was inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Detail EP. I added acetate behind the same white CS piece I die cutted the butterfly and adhered it back to its place on top of the acetate. I think it is called inlaid die cutting. Edges of the rectangular layer are also inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Detail EP.

For the background I used one of my favorite technique with glitters - Lace Background. I covered piece of cardstock with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" and added lace on top. I rubbed Cloud Nine glitter through the lace to the tape. After removing lace I covered rest of the sticky parts with Golden Wheat glitter.

For the golden ribbon I die cutted another butterfly out of cardstock which was covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape". I used scissor to cut the wings off. Ribbon part was covered with Golden Wheat Glitter. This entire layer is popped up with rubber foam and made as a shaker. Behind the butterfly are Suze Weiberg's Golden Beadazzeles and Clear Microbeads.

To add some more interest to the card I used Dia-Versions Loopy Lace below the focal layer and some pearls in center of the ribbon.
