Days of Spring

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:

Now that you had read all the details of how you can win a fabulous
prize to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Store,
I want to show you my card
and a little bit of how I created it!

I chose Want 2 Scrap Tulips Chipboard,
using just one from the package of four.

First applying Versamark and White embossing powder,
then heat setting, I next added the neatest embossing powder
called Polka Dot.....I just love the pretty, shiny effect!
I then traced the leaf part and fussy cut it out, then used
brushable glue to adhere it down.

I die cut a Sue Wilson die from black card stock
that was first adhered to Super Adhesive Sheets.

Gypsy Red Velvet glitter was applied and I used my
'finger tool' to burnish the glitter in well.

Once all the glitter was well burnished,
I used a Glitter Brush to 'clean up' my die cut.

To finish I added a 'Pull Ribbon' bow....
this ribbon is a 'must have' pretty and so easy to create a gorgeous bow!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
Your next stop on the hop should be BELINDA
