Sparkle N Sprinkle's March 1 Reveal



Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's March 1 Reveal.





This month we are featuring five versatile stamp sets.  February was a mix of winter and spring and so is our reveal.  Two sets are filled with the joy and freshness of Spring, while two other sets are perfect for Christmas.

So many of us plan to start our Christmas cards early and work on them throughout the year (yes, that is always my plan).  Why not get started with this month's technique kit using the pretty Red Cardinal drawn by Rosiland Solomon.  This Winter Cardinal set can also be purchased separately and is also included in Jazzy Jill's Technique Video for the month.

The first of the month also means a new challenge at SNS Creative Challenges where the theme is always

"Anything Goes with Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking."


Check out these awesome new sets:


Born to Shop #554



Winter Cardinal #518



Crystal Medallion #531



Iris Frame #532



Springtime Spunky #537

I love the newness of spring and all the lovely flowers so I could not resist using the Iris Frame set for this reveal.


I stamped the lovely image and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder on light weight vellum.  This gives it such a delicate look.  I colored the flowers on the back, using my Copic markers.  I added some Concord Star Embossing Powder and Sun Dazzle Sparkle N Soft to the flower center with a glue pen.


 I layered the image on white cardstock, that was run through an embossing folder, and popped it up on a 2nd piece, punched around the edges with a corner/border punch set.  The lovely background paper is Blue Pathways from Sparkle N Sprinkles’ Pocket Full of Papers line.




This set includes three different sentiments which makes it very versatile for different occasions. 

Don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win – I might be one of the secret designers!  Don’t forget to visit my fellow designers for more chances to win.


Can’t wait to grab up these sets?

Each of the five stamp sets are available at 20% off, valid through March 3.

You may also phone the SNS Shoppe to place your orders.


Thank you for stopping by!

Your take on this card is so different from the other members in the hop. That's what makes this stamp a winner - many diverse techniques. I love the vellum on white. It looks so "soft". Good for a sympathy card. Beautiful!
