Die-Versions/Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop


Welcome to the Die-Versions and Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop!

The joint blog hop with Die-Versions and Sparkle N Sprinkle begins today (7am EST) and goes until Aug 17th (5pm EST), so there will be plenty of time to check out all the great projects created by both teams.  The theme is Christmas, so you'll get lots of great inspiration for your upcoming Holiday cards.

Die-Versions manufactures low profile dies made right here in the United States and Sparkle N Sprinkle manufactures rubber stamps, glitters, embossing powders, and flocking, also made in the US.  This is like a match made in heaven - low profile dies combined with lots of glitter, embossing powder, and flocking.  Doesn't get much better than that.

One winner will receive a Grand Prize consisting of a $50 gift certificate from Die-Versions and a $50 gift certificate from Sparkle N Sprinkle, for a total of $100.  The winner will be announced on Aug 17th on both the DV Blog and the SNS Blog as well as their Facebook pages.

In order to be eligible for the Grand Prize, please: 
  • Leave a comment on each Designer's blog
  • Follow both companies on Facebook (DV Facebook pageSNS Facebook page) if you haven't already so you can keep up to date on all the latest goings on.   (I'm sure that all of the Designers would love for you to Follow them too, but that isn't a requirement to win this prize.)  

You should have arrived here from the Lori's blog .  If not, then you should begin at the Die-Versions Blog and end at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog.  If you get lost along the way, you can go to either the DV Blog or the SNS Blog to see the complete list of participants.

We'd love it if you'd like to leave a comment at either the DV Blog or the SNS Blog telling us which projects were your favorites.  :-)



I just loved these beautiful dies!  The 3 used on my project are Season's Greetings ScriptHoliday Cheer Chain and Delicate Deer.  

The Season's Greeting and the Deer were both die cut twice.  One of each were glittered using brushable glue and Champagne glitter.  Once the glitter was dry they were layered slightly off center.  This really created a beautiful look!!




For the beautiful chain, it was die cut and glittered using brushable glue and Champagne, Spirited GreenFire Engine RedSparkling SnowSilver Dreams and Lady Luck glitter.


The snowflakes were created using embossing paste and stencils.  Twinkling Clouds was added while the paste was still wet.  

The strip of "sparkle" was created using the SNS tutorial for Glittered Lace Background, you can find it HERE.  


Champagne and Lady Luck glitter was used for the glittered background.


For my 2nd project I created a Center Step Card (template can be found HERE)


The background paper for this card is created using the above tutorial for creating Glittered Lace Background.  The glitters used were Champagne and Silver Dreams. 

The sentiment is from A Winter Wonderland.   

A snowflake from Recollections was added along with several

 rhinestones and pearls.


The deer was inked  with versamark and embossed using White Spark.  The paper dolly was also embossed using versamark and Fire Cracker Red.  Once the deer was dry a bow and rhinestone was added.

 
 
You can find full details on both projects on my SNS Gallery!



 
Your next stop on the blog hop is the amazing Marie!

We hope you enjoy this blog hop and it gives you lots of inspiration!  Don't forget to leave each of us a comment and follow both Die-Versions and Sparkle N Sprinkle on Facebook.
