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

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

The sets are:

Hello Foxy 882

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.

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

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 acomment 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:

Now onto my card.
I used the Digital Version of Roses In My Heart
and printed the image 5 times.  
I adjusted the size to fit my largest die in Microsoft Word.
(I don't have  a fancy program to print digitals, but this works fine).

The dies I used for this card are the Tonic Ribbons & Bows Layering set.
I started by placing first the largest die on (I have them shown cut side up so you can see the cut lines of where they cut.  To cut you will of course want the cut side down.
You will want to make sure that the largest die is placed so you don't cut off any of
your image.  Then place the next die, the next and so on until you have the last die on (the smallest)
adjusting the other 4 as needed.

Once you have the dies where you want them,
turn the smallest over and carefully remove the other four.Tape the die down
with removable tape  and die cut.
Take the cut piece and line up to match on the next printed image and place the next size die.
Remove the smallest image.
Keep doing this in order until all pieces are cut.

Line up each image one on top of the other using foam tape to pop them up.
I started with the largest and built up to the smallest.

I stamped the sentiment using the stamp Rose In my Heart.
I added the next largest of the dies from the same 
Tonic Ribbon and Bow Layering die set, but this time using the more detailed
die in the set along with a solid back piece (also from the same die set).
I then added Sticker Paper to the solid piece and added the intricate piece on top.
This allowed me to sprinkle it with Hyacinth pretty.
I simply (and carefully) cut around the outer edge of the back piece.
This was then placed and adhered to the other die cut layered pieces.

I used a Sakura Quicky Glue pen on various places on the Roses and added more
Hyacinth glitter, I did the same on the leaves but this time added Gecko glitter.

A small heart punch was used to punch a heart, coated with Nuvo Glue Pen Medium Tip, sprinkled with Hyacinth glitter and glued to a ribbon bow.

I hope you have enjoyed my card and give this technique a try!
Next on the hop is the our lovely and very talented  SHONA!

Oh, my word! You had me over there looking. The rose set is soooooo beautiful! I'd go for the digi set, probably. Looks like it would make for some wonderful watercoloring. I love the technique you used, and the glitter colors are perfect. I can just imagine your glitter collection. Do you ave a separate room for it? Sheesh! Beautiful card, Diane!

Karen Letchworth said...

Hello, Diane!
I hope this finds you well. I'm bummed out that I missed this month's Blog Hop (again). I look often, but never seem to find it at the right time. I did sign up for the Facebook Challenge page, but haven't entered yet. I'm having shoulder surgery next Friday (Jan 26) and will be out of the craft room for quite some time, I'm sure. I hope I'm able to type so that i can at least get on my computer and look around. I'm having a rotator cuff repair (right shoulder) so it could be tricky! God is in control, and my faith is in Him alone - whatever the outcome.

I absolutely LOVE this month's release, and wish I had been able to hop along. Perhaps next month. Take care, and please stop by Word Art Wednesday to play along with us when you can. I always love seeing your cards linked to the challenges with us. Have a great week.
