Sparkle N Sprinkle September Blog Hop




http://sparklensprinkle.com/o/product_info.php?cPath=82_103&products_id=7416


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.

Here are a few of the Beach themed sets being used this month:
  Tropical 158 (digi version DIGI158)
Ocean Treasures 560 (digi version DIGI560jj)
Sea Lady 735 (digi version DIGI735)
Mermaid Kisses 529 (rubber only)
Surf's Up 455  (digi version DIGI455)
Beach Babes 473 (digi version DIGI473m)


Big Day 749, a calendar/planner stamp set, is featured with this month's Technique Video Kit.

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:

Eret
Chris
Anne
Ani
Marie
Belinda
Shona

My card features images and sentiments from the By the Seashore and Ocean Treasures sets.  A variety of Distress Inks and Memento Inks were used to create the colorful background on glossy cardstock.

The sea grass and birds were stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ebony Spark embossing powder.  This was added to a layer edged with Tear-ific Tape and Florida Beach glitter was added to the remaining exposed adhesive.  This was all added to a card base with the edges inked.

The "Voice of the Sea" was embossed with Dark Night embossing powder and die cut with Spellbinders’ Classic Circles dies.  It was adhered with Clear Acetate on dimensional tape to create a shaker window.  Small die cuts from Memory Box’s Oceana Corner, small glass beads, and a small amount of Florida Beach glitter were added to the inside.


The Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge also begins today.  There are lots of prizes and recognition badges.  Come check out how you can become a SNS Featured Artist as well.  The theme is always Anything Goes using Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder, and/or Flock.


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????




The next stop on our blog hop is Belinda.

Marie, I want your card! I don't often feel that way. I usually just look and say that is a great technique or I wish I had thought to put those features together. On your artwork you just drew me in and made me want to CASE this shaker card! I loved all the details. I would never have put black on the silhouette. My bad! It is so stunning and the effect is perfect for this card. TFS you are an inspiration!

Wow wow WOW, Marie! Fantastic design! I love how you have portrayed the sun. This scene does remind me of my favorite beach from 40 years ago here on the gulf coast. Thanks for describing the techniques used. Marie, when designing a card, do you have something in mind? Or do you just sorta play and see what happens? All your cards are beyond beautiful! hugs, de
