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 bling!! 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 page; SNS 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.)
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 created two projects for today's hop!!
For the first card, I used the new Whispers Merry Christmas Script die. It was covered with Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Berry Embossing Powder. Sparkle N Sprinkle's glitters and embossing powders are the best I've ever used!! I absolutely love the coverage and the colors!!
The trees in the background are a SNS Pine Forest stamp. It was heat embossed with SNS Frosted Juniper Embossing Powder and then outlined in SNS Winter White Embossing Powder for snow. The brads were glittered with SNS Silver Dreams Glitter. The button in the center of the bow is a Die-Versions Wee Petites Button Die. It was covered with SNS Victorian Christmas Glitter.
For my second card, I created a winter scene using the Die-Versions Shapes Build An Owl die. The clouds were sponged with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. Peace on Earth is a Die-Versions Sweet Wordlet die. It was cut twice, once in black for a shadow and then the second cut was covered with SNS Fire Engine Red Glitter. I used the SNS Pine Forest stamp again - I just love it!! It was heat embossed with SNS Frosted Juniper EP. It's tough to see in the pictures, but I used Ranger Perfect Medium and covered the snow on the bottom of the card with SNS Cloud Nine Microfine Velvet Glitter.
The adorable owl isn't just a decoration...he's also an ornament!! He was velcroed to the front of the card for easy removal. His tree was covered with SNS Victorian Christmas Glitter. The star on top was covered with SNS Silver Dreams Glitter. His eyes were covered with Glossy Accents.
Your next stop on the blog hop is the sweet and talented Patti. 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.
