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 a $20 Gift Certificate to the shoppe!

The Blog Hop order is:
(Tip: if you have difficulty with a particular link, try clicking on the Designer's blog title to be directed to their Home page.)

The Blog Hop runs from the 15th - 17th

SNS also has two kit clubs: The Stamp and Card-Making Video Kit Club is released on the 1st of each month and the new Multi-Project Kit Club is released on the 15th of each month.  Subscribe to the SNS You-Tube Channel to get great inspiration using all the products available in each kit.

The Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge group is on Facebook and runs from the 1st - 25th of each month.  A SNS image (either rubber or digi) is required.  The winner will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to go shopping at the SNS store.

We hope you enjoy the New Reveal Blog Hop as much as we enjoy creating new projects for it.  Be sure to visit the SNS Blog for even more inspiration.  Something new is posted most every day.

Here is my card I created for the hop.

Products used on my card with direct links for your convenience:

Stamps:  Snowman With A Heart Digi314
Happiness Greetings 886
Glitter Cloud Nine GM2000
OceanBreeze GM2039
Embossing Powder Black Fine Detail EP171
Other Sakura Glue Pen (QUICKY)
Misc:  Heart EB folder
Spellbinders Heart To Heart Lace Doily dies
Cheery Lynn Designs Heart die

I started by die cutting a heart with a Spellbinders die,
then using a light and a darker ink, I stamped the leaf pattern
from the Happiness Greetings stamp set around the edge of the  heart.
It fit perfectly.

I used the digital stamp Snowman With A Heart that was already pre-colored
and fussy cut him out.
Using Nuvo Glitter Accents Winter Cranberry I added it to the large heart
and the heart 'buttons' going down the snowman.
I also stamped and fussy cut the flower on the hat using the same stamp set
Happiness Greetings.  
I placed the flower over the holly(I wanted it to look more of Valentine) that is part of the digi snowman and added
the Nuvo Ember Glow glitter pen (red) to that.
I did the same with the carrot nose, but this time using the orange glitter pen.
Using Nuvo Northern Lights glitter pen (green),
I added a bit of sparkle to the greenery of the flower.

Using a Sakura Quicky Glue Pen, I dotted it around the blue shading
around the snowman, then added Ocean Breeze glitter.

The background was embossed with a heart embossing folder.
I die cut a big heart from Cheery Lynn Designs Heart die by first adding my card stock to 
Sticker Paper, peeling off the paper then adding Cloud Nine glitter to the entire heart.
The sentiment is also from the Happiness Greetings stamp set,
stamped in Versamark, then embossed with Black Fine Detail embossing powder.
The entire finished piece was then adhered to a red card stock.

Next on our hop is our very talented and creative CHRIS.

This card is nicely glittered without being over the top. I like the embossed hearts background as it gives depth to the design. Also, this could be for any age and both male or female. Thanks for sharing this Diane.
