Sparkle N Sprinkle April Reveal

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

This month the Designers were asked to create projects with Want 2 Scrap chipboard products.  If you are able to visit any of the shows that SNS is participating in this year, you will notice SNS now has a larger booth.  Margaret and crew are sharing this new, larger space with Want 2 Scrap.  

We wanted to showcase various projects using both SNS products and W2S products together.  Hopefully, you'll see some new uses of these products that you may not have thought of before.  Chipboard can be used for more than scrapbook layouts or mini albums :-).  So sit back, enjoy the Hop and get ready to have those creative juices flowing!  

Be sure to visit the SNS Blog all month long for more projects and ideas that incorporate your favorite glitters, embossing powders, and more with the Want 2 Scrap chipboard.   

On April 3rd, ONE GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be selected from the comments left on the Designers' blogs listed below. 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 Grand Prize Winner, which will be announced on the SNS Facebook page and on the SNS Blog on April 4, will receive a $20 gift certificate to go shopping at the SNS Shoppe.

The Blog Hop order this month is:

It is so much fun to play with chipboards. Want 2 Scrap has lots of beautiful an intricate chipboards. You can make fabulous scrapbook layouts, cards and other things with them. Today's card I used one of the frames from Vintage Fancy Frames set. This set has 4 gorgeous frames. Last month I shared a project using the background piece of where the frames came in. 

Frame was colored with White Gesso. After it was dry I squeezed Raspberry Pink Nuvo Crystal Drops on top and brushed it all over the frame. Love this worn look. 

Sentiment is from Donna's Stylin Sayings stamp set #777. It is stamped to the vellum with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Detail Embossing Powder. 

Roses are die cut with Spellbinders Rose Creations dies out of white cardstock. I used Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress inks to color them. Chris wrote a very good tutorial how to make them. I added Celestial glitter to the petals with Brushable Glue. Green leaves under the roses are from my leftovers basket. If I remember correctly, they are die cut with dies from the same set, colored with Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn Distress inks and on top I spritzed Perfect Pearl Mist. Tall leaf branch is colored with same inks but it's without the Mist. I also tucked some white thread and Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork die cut behind the roses.

I stamped speckles and brush strokes (under the roses) from the Donna's Stylin Sayings set with Versamark ink to the pattern paper and heat embossed with Gilded Ivory embossing powder. I cut Want 2 Scrap white Sleek Strips Pearls in pieces and adhered some pearls randomly. I also made some pink pearls with Raspberry Pink Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Left and right edge of the matting layer was covered with 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Celestial glitter. 

The next stop on our blog hop is Diane. Have fun!
