Sparkle N Sprinkle September Reveal

Welcome to the September 
Sparkle N Sprinkle New Reveal Blog Hop! 

The Blog Hop is on the 15th of each month.  On the 1st of each month, SNS will release a new Video Kit Club.

SNS is always adding new products and new product lines to the store.  So stop by often to see what's new! 

We are pleased to reveal the following new stamp sets this month.

The sets are:

Birdhouse Friends 852
(Digital Version DIGI852BG)

Lovely Magnolia 853  
(Digital Version DIGI853FS - see below)

A Puppy's Halloween 863
(Digital Version DIGI863FS)

Victorian Camille at Christmas 864

(Digital Version DIGI864LS)

DIGI853FS - Lovely Magnolia huge digi bundle (lots of extras not included in the rubber version.)
You are definitely going to want both the digi version as well as the rubber version because when you purchase the digital versions, there are lots of extras that aren't available otherwise.  These extras can include additional images, additional sentiments, digi papers (in some cases), and a cut file.

The new sets are 20% off until the 20th of the month.  Head on over to the SNS store once you've finished the Blog Hop and start shopping.

One GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be announced on the 17th of the month.  One of the Designers is our Mystery Host and the winner will be selected from comments left on her blog.  You must leave a comment on each of the Designers' blogs in order to be selected as the winner, as you never know who the Mystery Host will be.  This is checked for compliance.

The GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be announced on the SNS Facebook page and on the SNS Blog and will receive all the rubber stamp sets revealed this month.

I decided to share Today a colorful and sparkly spring card made with Birdhouse Friends Digital Set. I used pre-colored image from the set and printed it out three times. Houses are fussy cut with scissors and adhered with foam tape to the full image.
I added lots of sparkle with Glitters and Glitter Drops: Eggs, butterfly and bird beaks are covered with White Blizzard, roof of the pink house, heart on the grey house and ladybug are covered with Pink Champagne and flower centers with Orange Soda Nuvo Glitter Drops. All glitters are adhered with Sakura Glue PenCabernet Glitter to grey house, Lemonade to the flowers and Easy Green to the leaves and grass.

Sentiment is from same Birdhouse Friends Digital Set. After printing it out in the size I needed it to be, I colored inside of the words with yellow marker. I found an old wooden mini frame and covered it with Stampendous Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Bahama Mama Embossing Powder. I repeated steps with ink and EP few times until I got nice thick coverage. 

And now comes a little tip. If you don't have suitable patter paper, make it yourself by largening pre-golored digi image and cover everything with glitter. That's what I did. I made the image very large and cut it a bit smaller then my card base was. Then I added 3/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the left side and 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the right side of the big image. I left the cap in between tapes on purpose. There was no point to waist lovely glitters to the space that is not going to be visible. After removing protective sheets from the tapes, I did some coloring with Semi-Transparent glitters: With small spoon I added Sunny Daze Glitter to the flowers, Aqua Marine Glitter to the leaves and grass. Waterfall Glitter was added to the rest of the tape. 

Edges of the matting layers are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Cabernet  Microfine Glitter. Some dots of Nuvo Glitter Drops (Orange SodaPink Champagne) was added around the image panel and sentiment. 

I was the last stop on the hop. I hope you had lots of fun. If you started the hop from the middle, you should go to the beginning, to Belinda's blog, and continue as long as you have seen all projects. Don't forget you must leave a comment on each of the Designers' blogs in order to be selected as the winner.
