SparkleNSprinkle - September 2017 Reveal

Welcome to the September 
Sparkle N Sprinkle New Reveal Blog Hop! 

The Blog Hop is on the 15th of each month.  On the 1st of each month, SNS will release a new Video Kit Club.

SNS is always adding new products and new product lines to the store.  So stop by often to see what's new! 

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

The sets are:

Birdhouse Friends 852
(Digital Version DIGI852BG)

Lovely Magnolia 853  
(Digital Version DIGI853FS - see below)

A Puppy's Halloween 863
(Digital Version DIGI863FS)

Victorian Camille at Christmas 864

(Digital Version DIGI864LS)

DIGI853FS - Lovely Magnolia huge digi bundle (lots of extras not included in the rubber version.)

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 all the rubber stamp sets revealed this month.

I was so excited about this month's release!  It was so hard choose just one for the release, but I went with my fave - the Lovely Magnolias!

Here is my supply list:
Antique Rose Crystal Drops - 656n
Tonic Floral Crafters 380

First, I started by stamping the image with Versamark Ink and embossing with Black Detail Embossing Powder. Then I grabbed my Aqua Flow Pens from Tonic Nuvo and colored them in. I stamped the small flower multiple times and then fussy cut them all out after they were watercolored.  I also stamped the leaves and followed the same steps. Aqua Flow - Fussy Cut! :)  I colored some of the larger flowers at the same time for future projects ;)


Next, I grabbed my Tonic Studios Floral Crafters Tool Set and started shaping the flowers and petals. It took some practice to get the right about of bend and angles - but I LOVE this tool set! It has a soft spongy mat to work on plus 3 stylus pens and your tweezers.


I embossed a piece of blush colored cardstock for my background using an embossing folder. Then I rubbed Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse all over it. I LOVE how it turned it almost a coral color!


I die cut a piece of pink patterned paper, rubbed Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse and stamped random flowers on it using Versamark Ink. I sprinkled on Golden Follies Embossing Powder and head set. This because my background for my flower arrangement.  I also rubbed on some Embellishment Mousse onto the flowers. 

I used Glue Dots to arrange my flowers and petals - aren't they pretty?  All of the layers were adhered with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape. To finish off flowers, I used the Small Nuvo Glue Pen and sprinkled on Ballerina Glitter and Burgundy Glitz Glitter.


The sentiment was stamped with Vesamark Ink and embossed with Golden Follies (I think this is my new fave embossing powder!).  I added drops of Antique Rose Crystal Drops as the finishing touch!


I hope you enjoy this card!  The next stop on the hop is the amazingly talented Diane!  You can find her blog HERE.
