Sparkle N Sprinkle January Reveal

Welcome to the January 2018 
Sparkle N Sprinkle New Reveal Blog Hop! 

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

The sets are:

Cherished Moments - Bride 875
Digital Version: DIGI875B

Roses In My Heart 879

Hello Foxy 882

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 a $20 Gift Certificate to the shoppe!

The Blog Hop order is:

And now to my card. I made a pocket card with stamps from the Cherished Moments - Bride 875 Stamp Set. 

Materials used:
SNS GlittersFascination [G1030], Cloud Nine [GM2000], Peruvian Lily [GM2014);
SNS Embossing PowdersSatin Velvet [EP209];
InksVersamark, Distress Ink (Tattered Rose);
Dies: Spellbinders (Radiant Rectangles);
Coloring Medium: Promarkers;
AdhesivesSakura Glue Pen, SNS Sticker Paper [99558], SNS 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape [SAT04];
Cardstock: White, Vellum, Tonic Craft Perfect Mirror Card (Burnished Rose);
EmbellishmentsNuvo Crystal Drops (Morning Dew);
Others: Lace, Corner Rounder, CraftConsept Embossing Folder (Budding Vines);

On the card front I used Glitter Lace Background technique: First I lad lace on top of the Sticker Paper. After making sure that the lace is laid down well, I poured Cloud Nine Microfine glitter on top and rubbed it on to the Sticker Paper well. I brushed off excess glitter and removed the lace. Rest of the sticky parts was covered with  Peruvian Lily Microfine Glitter.
For the matting layer, I used Burnished Rose Tonic Craft Perfect Mirror Card. 
Did you know that it is possible to heat emboss on top of the Microfine Glitters? Here is a proof! I used Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, but you can do it without it as well. I placed the flower image towards the bottom, closed the lid of the Stamp Platform, inked the stamp with Versamark ink and stamped it once to the glittered background. Then I rotated the background upside down and repeated the stamping. I covered images with Satin Velvet Embossing Powder on and heat set it with a heat tool. The sentiment was stamped with same ink in between the images. It was also heat embossed with Satin Velvet Embossing Powder.
All the edges of this layer was covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Peruvian Lily Microfine Glitter

I ended up with one image being upside down. It was totally ok because I wanted to cut it out anyway. Actually, I planned to cut them both in the way that only dotted circles will stay. But after cutting the first one, I decided to pop it up with foam tape to the second image. I covered the flowers with Nuvo Crystal Drops (Morning Dew)

I stamped the same image on the vellum with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Satin Velvet Embossing Powder. I coloured the flowers and leaves from the back side of the Vellum. To the front side, I adhered a bit of Fascination Glitter with Sakura Glue Pen. This Vellum piece has adhered behind the circle window. The Burnished Rose Tonic Craft Perfect Mirror Card, which was used as a matting layer, is peeking through the Vellum. 

I decorated the inside of the card as well. Left side is covered with a piece of Burnished Rose Mirror Card. A bottom of it is embossed with an embossing folder. 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape has adhered across the layer and it was covered with Cloud Nine Microfine Glitter.
For the sentiment layer, I cut a decorative oval with a die from Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles set. I added some colour to it with Tattered Rose Distress Ink. It was inked while the paper was still inside of the die.
The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. And again, I stamped it with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Satin Velvet Embossing Powder. To finish off this layer, I  drew an oval near the edge with Sakura Glue Pen and covered it with Peruvian Lily Microfine Glitter.
I made a pocket on the right side to hold a gift card.

I'm the last stop on the SNS Blog Hop. If you joined in from the middle, please go to beginning, to Belindablog, to see and comment all the wonderful projects you have missed.
