SparkleNSprinkle - June Reveal

I'm Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle
 June Reveal Blog Hop!

We are now revealing our new stamp sets on the 15th of each month.  On the first of the month, a new video kit club will be revealed.

We are continuing to add new product lines, so be on the look out for them.  The newest addition is Hampton Arts.

We have four new rubber stamp sets plus one huge digi bundle being revealed this month.  

The sets are:

(Digital Version DIGI851BG - additional sentiment)
  (Digital Version DIGI854LS - additional sentiments)
(Digital Version DIGI856FS - see below)
(Digital Version DIGI857SG - additional sentiments)

DIGI856FS - Swallowtail Butterflies (includes lots of additional colored images, additional sentiments, and digi paper)

When you purchase the digi versions of any of the SNS rubber sets, you are getting lots of extras that aren't available otherwise.  These extras include additional images and/or sentiments not available with the rubber version, digi papers (in some cases), and a cut file to use with your electronic cutting machines will also be included with all digi images purchased!

You're definitely going to want both the rubber versions as well as the digi versions of all our new releases.

The new sets are 20% off until June 20, 2017.  So once you finish the blog hop, head on over to the New Store and start shopping.

First up, the lace background technique!  I took a piece of Sticker paper and cut it down to 4"x5.25". I removed the protective backing and exposed the adhesive, then carefully laid down my piece of lace. 

I sprinkled on my Daffodil Embossing Powder and burnished it in well, making sure that it covered all the exposed adhesive.

I brushed off all the excess powder, removed the lace CAREFULLY and did the same process with my Silver Pearl Embossing to cover all the remaining exposed adhesive. I carefully pressed it in so as not to disturb the daffodil powder.  After brushing off the excess powder, I heat set and voila!  Beautiful lace background!

Next up, I played with my Lemon Sorbet Embellishment Mousse!  I brushed it on the edges of my background and of my printed Digital image. I love these Mini Blender Brushes 1558e.

Next step - FLOCKING!
I used the Canary Flocking to add some dimension to our mama's dress. I used the Medium Nuvo Glue Pen to add adhesive, then sprinkled on the Canary Flocking, carefully pressing in to adhere.  I also added some Peach Belinni Microfine Glitter to her flowers and Sparkling Snow Glitter to the MOM lettering.

I added Limoncello Jewel Drops, Morning Dew Crystal Drops and Dandelion Yellow Crystal drops for some added embellishment.


The buttons were from my stash and I dipped them in Versamark Ink, then embossed with the Silver Pearl Embossing Powder.

All my layers were adhered with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape (you gotta have this stuff in your stash!).


I hope you enjoyed my project.  I can't wait for you to hop along to Anne's Blog HERE to see what gorgeous creation she has came up with for you!
