Sparkle N Sprinkle September Reveal and Blog Hop

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.

Happy Hopping!

Now onto my card.

I used the gorgeous stamp set 

I started out by making my own background paper on brown card stock.
I first stamped the smaller of the magnolia from the set in random places
all over the  card stock with Versamark embossing ink.
Squash Marbled embossing powder was then used to emboss the flowers.
I love the pretty color of this EB powder!

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark,
then embossed with Coffee embossing powder.

I stamped the large flower with Nuvo Hybrid Ink Pad Acorn Brown,
colored it with Copics, 
then I went around each petal using one of the pens from
then hand cut it out using Tonic 5" mini scissors
and popping it up with foam dimensionals..
I added a bow to the flower to finish it off.

I wanted to add a bit more 'sparkle'
so I die cut a Spellbinders Lovin' Diamonds die
and added 1 1/2" Tear-ific Tape around the edges then sprinkled
Aztec Gold Glitter.  I then added the flower panel using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape.

Thank you for visiting with me today!
