Sparkle N Sprinkle's March 1 Reveal

Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's March 1 Reveal.

Hope you all have been able to stay warm this month!!!  This has really been a cold winter, but it has given time for indoor paper crafting.  I would like to say hello to my newest follower Mary H, thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you all are ready for some fun, it is time to reveal Sparkle and Sprinkle's newest stamp sets with lots of chances to win great prizes.

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.

The Winter Cardinal stamp set is available by itself on line.
It is also included in Jazzy Jill's Technique Video for the month.

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."

Don't you just love all the new stamps!!  I really loved the Frame Iris and thought how pretty it would look using the SNS Tutorial for stained glass. 

 This really turned out so pretty, I hope you can see all the beautiful "SPARKLE" on this card!!
I used Tim Holtz's Tattered Flower dies for the flowers and Sizzix Flourish Die.  The flowers were glittered using Pixie Violet (this is the most beautiful color), Green Iris and Daisy glitter.  Once the glue had dry on the acetate, I then covered the entire image with 2 1/2 Tear-ific Tape.  Remove the backing and cover with Cloud Nine glitter.  Use copic markers to highlight the areas around the flowers. See SNS Tutorial for coloring on glitter.

Here is a look at my 2nd card using this same stamp.

This card was made using SNS Coloring on Glitter tutorial. You will need copic markers, 2 1/2 Tear-ific Tape and Cloud Nine for this technique.  I placed 1/4" Tear-ific Tape on the edge of the yellow cardstock and glittered using Daisy glitter.  
If you would like more details on using copic markers on glitter you can find it HERE!

These are 2 different techniques with such different looks!

I am going to give you a sneak peek of projects to come using all of the new stamp sets.  Be sure to check back to see the reveal.

If you would like more details on how to make these cards please visit my Sparkle N Sprinkle Gallery.

Good Luck to you all, be sure to visit all of the talented designer's blogs for a chance to winner so wonderful products!!!
