Sparkle N Sprinkle November Reveal

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

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

The sets are:

Cat's Meow 870
(Digital Version: DIGI870B)

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.

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

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.

The Blog Hop order is:

The Creative Challenges run from the 1st - 25th of each month.  A SNS image (either rubber or digi) is required.  If you don't have any yet - no worries - there are some freebies located on the Home page of the SNS website.  Just scroll down the page a bit to see them.

The Creative Challenge Winner and Top Three will be posted on the last day of each month.  The winner will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to go shopping at the SNS store.

Please review all the Challenge Rules before submitting your photo 😀.  We can't wait to see what all you create using SNS images.


My card features two sad cats and one of the sentiments from Cat's Meow stamp set. This set is very versatile. During next four weeks, I'll share a Christmas card made with other two cats from Cat's Meow.

I stamped both cats with Versafine (Onyx Black) ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I did some coloring with Promarkers (ears, nose, butterfly) but most of the cats are covered with Flocking. Sitting cat is "colored" with Sakura Glue Pen and Buff Flocking. To exhausted cat I also added patches of Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft and Dark Chocolate Flocking.

I used two Wooden Popsicle Sticks on my card. To make them nice and shiny, I brushed Mother of Pearl Nuvo Embellishment Mousse on top of them. Then I pounced one of the popsicle stick with Anti Static Bag to remove the static electricity. I stamped the sentiment with Onyx Black Versafine ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.

I ripped some holes to the shabby blue wooden pattern paper and adhered another pattern paper underneath to peek out from the openings. To the two corners of the background I applied some glue and covered it with Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft. 

Across the background I sprinkled Blackened Bronze Embossing Powder and heat set it from underneath the paper. And because my card wasn't enough worn-out and gloomy... actually it was but I just had to adhere Oceanic Glass Glitter here and there... 

The next stop on the SNS Blog Hop is Jess with her amazing project.
