Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's
Sept 1 New Reveal Blog Hop!
This month we are doing something a little different. Instead of releasing new stamp sets, we decided to do a themed reveal. Our theme is "Beach/Water" related, so you will see lots of different stamp sets used by our Designers. Any "beach themed" set will be 20% off until Sept 3. So once you finish the blog hop, head on over to the store and start shopping. All of the sets are available on cling mounted rubber or as a digital image.
Big Day 749, a calendar/planner stamp set, is featured with this month's Technique Video Kit.
Here are a few of the Beach themed sets being used this month:
Mermaid Kisses 529 (rubber only)
On Sept 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 winner will get to choose FOUR beach/water themed stamp sets of his/her choice (or the digi version, if preferred).
The Grand Prize Winner will be announced on Sept 3 on the SNS Facebook page, the Designer's blogs, and here on the SNS Blog.
In addition to our regular Designers, two of our 2015 Guest Designers this month, Ani and Chris are with us again this month.
The Blog Hop order this month is:

We hope you enjoy the New Reveal Blog Hop as much as we do. Thanks for joining us and remember to comment on each of the Designers' blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize.
Wonder who the Mystery Host will be this month????
Now for a bit about my easel card.
For the inside of the easel card, I started out by dry embossing the bottom with a Spellbinder M-Bossabilities folder (Sea Beauty) and then I lightly went over the raised areas with Distress Inks (Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold).
The small sea shells are dies from Impression Obsession (Mini Shell set). These were all colored with Copic markers and then heat embossed with more Sparkle embossing powder. The sentiment, by Penny Black (Doodles), was die cut twice from navy cardstock and a lighter blue cardstock. After adhering the two together, Glossy Accents was added for a shiny look.
Now it's time to head on over to Ani's blog to see which beach themed stamp set she used.
