We have FOUR new stamp sets to share with you today.  These new sets are 20% off until July 3.  So once you finish the blog hop, head on over to the store and start shopping.  All of the new sets are available on cling mounted rubber or as a digital image.  Christmas Goose 721  is the stamp set featured with this month's Technique Video Kit.
The sets are:

Christmas Goose 721   (digi version DIGI721B)
Reindeer 722   (digi version DIGI722J)

On July 3, one GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be selected from the comments left on the Designers' blogs.  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 July 3 on the SNS Facebook page and here on the SNS Blog, will receive ALL of the new stamp sets released this month (or the digi versions, if preferred).

In addition to our regular Designers, we are happy to introduce you to two new Guest Designers this month.  Ani and Chris will be our Guest Designers for the months of July, August, and September.  We'd also like to say Thank You to our first set of Guest Designers, Diane and Ashley, for a job well done!

We hope you enjoy the New Reveal 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.)  Last month the winning comment came from Eret's blog.  Who will be the Mystery Designer this month?? 

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.

I've chosen Christmas Goose for my Reveal project this month because I know exactly how he feels when it comes to stringing Christmas lights :-).  I used the digi version as I wanted him pretty large.  After coloring the image with Copic markers, dimensional glue was added to the light bulbs and then covered with Terrific Blue glitter and Crystal Ice glitter.

A Sue Wilson die (Noble - Ornate Pierced Rectangles) was used for the frame and covered with more Terrific Blue glitter using the Glueless Glitter technique and the Spanish Collection-Cordoba die was used for the sentiment (also digi).  I outlined the stitching on this die cut with a Sakura glue pen and covered it with Terrific Blue glitter.

I'm the last one on the blog hop this month and we hope you've enjoyed seeing all the projects using the new reveals.  In order to win the Grand Prize (all of the stamp sets released this month), you will need to leave a comment on each of the Designers' blogs.  You never know who the Mystery Designer will be.  Will it be one of the Guest Designers or one of the regulars?  Only time will tell...

Thanks for stopping by.

Love your take on the Christmas goose Anne. You got plenty of sparkle on this tangled- up little guy! Love your gorgeous frames too and the shading that you did around the goose is a really nice touch too.

I feel the same way about the lights - that is why my husband has to put the lights on the tree. Super cute card. This duck is so fun and love the dies and glitters you used to show him off.
