SPARKLE 'n SPRINKLE march release party


hello crafty friends!

and welcome to SPARKLE N SPRINKLE's march 1st reveal.

this month we are featuring five versatile stamp sets.
two of the sets are perfect for christmas.
many of our customers said they promise themselves to make christmas cards a little bit each month, all year long, but they fail to find the time. so this month's technique kit uses the pretty red cardinal drawn by rosiland solomon.

here is a bit of inspiration from me:




to cut the snowflakes i used white cardstock, adhesive sheets, SPELLBINDERS dies and three different glitters - Blue Silver [EP446]Diamond Dust [G1116] and Jasper Blue [GM2012]


for the winter cardinal i used the SNS #518 a winter cardinal stamp set. i stamped the image with VERSAMARK ink and covered it with antiquities embossing powder. then i coloured it with different embossing powder and glitters - for the branches i used christmas green EP and for the bird - red apple EP, cayenne star EP and fire engine red glitter.


i stamped the words from the SNS #531 crystal medallion stamp set around the snowflakes to finish my design.


here is a list with all SNS products i used on my project:


the FIRST also means a new challenge at SNS creative challenges where the monthly theme is always
"anything goes with loose glitter, embossing powder and/or flocking."

#554 born to shop

Love this, Emmy. Although I don't do scrapping, I really love how the snowflakes fly across the page. I will have to try this on a smaller scale on a card. Beautiful.
