Hello {Sparkle N Sprinkle Jan 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.

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 
SNS store!

The Blog Hop order is:

We hope you enjoy the New Reveal Blog Hop as much as we enjoy creating new projects for it.  Be sure to visit the SNS Blog for even more inspiration.  Something new is posted most every day.

The Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge group is on Facebook and runs from the 1st - 25th of each month.  A SNS image (either rubber or digi) is required.  If you don't have any yet, there are freebies located on the Home page of thSNS website.  Just scroll down the page a bit to see them.  The winner will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to go shopping at the SNS store.

SNS is proud to announce there are now two kit clubs each month!  The first one is the Video Stamp and Card-Making Kit Club and will be available on the first of each month.  The new kit club is the Multi-Project Kit Club and will released on the 15th of each month.   Both are hosted by our very own Demo Donna!  Demo Donna will provide lots of inspiration on the SNS You-Tube channel using all the contents in the kits.  Each kit has a retail value between $40 - $65 and is only $35.

Now for a bit about my project:

I started out by coloring Cara and Mouse Friend with Copic markers and die cutting using an old Spellbinders scalloped oval die.  Next I die cut a couple different Tonic Studios layering die sets. The Layered Rivoli layering die set was used to die cut the white cardstock and the blue patterned paper was die cut using the Decorative Rivoli layering die set.

I added Butterscotch microfine glitter to the yellow flowers on the image and to outline the decorative areas on the die cuts.  Ocean Breeze, Pink Fizz,  and Black Diamonds microfine glitters were also used to highlight the various flowers on the image.  Bubble Gum glitter accents the tiny mouse's cheeks and the inside of his ears.

The sentiment is part of the Roses In My Heart set and I used the Tim Holtz Stamping Platform to stamp this onto one of the smaller dies from the Tonic Studios die.  I stamped it several times with Memento ink (Summer Sky) in order to get it darker (I didn't have a reinker for this ink pad, so this was the best solution 😏).  I left the stamp in place, cleaned it off, and then added VersaMark and stamped it one last time.  Then I heat set the sentiment using Clear Detail embossing powder.  Butterscotch microfine glitter also accents the decorative areas on the die cut.

Your next stop on the blog hop is Chris and I know she has something fun for you too.  Be sure to leave a comment on each of the Designers' blogs for your chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to the SNS store!

Happy Hopping,
