Sparkle N Sprinkle's April 1st Reveal Blog Hop

Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's
 April 1 New Reveal Blog Hop!

This month the Designers were asked to create projects with Want 2 Scrap chipboard products.  If you are able to visit any of the shows that SNS is participating in this year, you will notice SNS now has a larger booth.  Margaret and crew are sharing this new, larger space with Want 2 Scrap.
We wanted to showcase various projects using both SNS products and W2S products together.  Hopefully, you'll see some new uses of these products that you may not have thought of before.  Chipboard can be used for more than scrapbook layouts or mini albums :-).  So sit back, enjoy the Hop and get ready to have those creative juices flowing!
Be sure to visit the SNS Blog all month long for more projects and ideas that incorporate your favorite glitters, embossing powders, and more with the Want 2 Scrap chipboard.

On April 3rd, ONE GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be selected from the comments left on the Designers' blogs listed below. 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 the SNS Facebook page and on the SNS Blog on April 4, will receive a $20 gift certificate to go shopping at the SNS Shoppe.

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????

I am not one to use a lot of chipboard on projects but love some of the ways I have seen it used with embossing powders.  I really liked the scroll font used with this chipboard “Love” and decided to create a wedding card using Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Happily Ever After stamp set.

The card base is die cut using a Spellbinders’ die cut and layered on super adhesive and a darker purple layer.  The remaining exposed adhesive was covered with the new Hyacinth Velvet Glitter. 

The Happily Ever After image and sentiment were both heat embossed onto the card front using Morning Glory embossing powder.

I covered the chipboard word with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it twice with Silver Pearl embossing powder.  Then I covered it with Versamark Ink one more time, covered it with Bridal glitter, and heat set.  The Silver Pearl EP melts and keeps the glitter in place.  I added a few pearls to the heart shape and adhered to the card front.

These pretty roses are also from Want 2 Scrap.  I adhere several to the top and bottom, arched around the image and sentiment.

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.

Wonderful wedding day card Marie! Love the pearls around the heart on the sentiment too. The colors are beautiful and the little flowers are the perfect finish to the card.

Your wedding card is gorgeous, Marie. Love how you heat embossed the image and didn't color it. It's beautiful behind the chipboard sentiment. Pearls on top of the heart is very clever embellishment. Stunning card!
