I am so excited and honored to be a part of this amazing group!! What better way to kick off a new term than with a blog hop :)


Welcome to the February 2018 
Sparkle N Sprinkle New Reveal Blog Hop! 

We are pleased to reveal the following new stamp sets this month.

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.

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 shoppe!

The Blog Hop order is:
(Tip: if you have difficulty with a particular link, try clicking on the Designer's blog title to be directed to their Home page.)

The Blog Hop runs from the 15th - 17th

SNS also has two kit clubs: The Stamp and Card-Making Video Kit Club is released on the 1st of each month and the new Multi-Project Kit Club is released on the 15th of each month.  Subscribe to the SNS You-Tube Channel to get great inspiration using all the products available in each kit.

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.  The winner will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to go shopping at the SNS store.

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.


For my project, I used the new Pretty Blooms (873) stamp set. Aren't these flowers gorgeous??!! I stamped them with Versamark Embossing Pad (VM001) and applied Antiquities Embossing Powder (EP266). The bottom and third layer were embossed with (my favorite) Lana Pink Embossing Powder (EP150).

I used a Medium Tip Nuvo Glue Pen (206N) on the inside lines and sprinkled them with Crystal Ice Glitter (G1058). The flowers were fussy cut with Tonic Spring-Cut Fine Tip Detail Scissors (404) and are popped up with foam tape on a bed of Diamond Dust Glitter (G1116), which was applied over Super Adhesive Sheets (SAS02). It sparkles like crazy!!

I used 1/4" Tear-ific Tape (SAT01) to adhere the layers together and Tonic 7" Titanium Scissors (817E) to cut the lace and ribbon.

The sentiment was stamped with a Versamark Embossing Pad (VM001) and embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder (EP298).

Nuvo Crystal Drops SimplyWhite (651N) were added to the side. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is from DL.ART.
