May SNS Blog Hop - On The Beach

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the May "On The Beach" Blog Hop from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  If you arrived here by way of Barbara Bruder's Blog  then you are at the right place, but if not and you want to be eligible for great prizes, then click here to start from the beginning. WOW.... by now you should be getting inspired. Are you having fun? On the beach!!!!  What a great time for this blog hop as the weather here in Washington has finally stopped raining and is now warming up a bit...

Prizes will be awarded, so don't forget to leave comments on everyone's blog, 'cause that's how you become eligible for the prizes that are to be given away. This is a 2 day blog hop so you'll have plenty of time to view all the projects and leave comments.The prizes are stamp sets, flocking, glitter embossing powders, etc.  BTW, there are 3 designers who've been designated to have prizes "hidden" on their blogs, so comments are important and we LOVE getting comments.They really make our day. So without further adieus, here is the card I chose to share with you for this blog hop...


For this card, I started with a simple medium blue cardstock base making my card A2 size.  I used I cut slits in a 5 1/4 X 4 sheet  of Super Adhesive Sheets and removed the individual backing pieces 1 by 1 adding each glitter color individually making the graduated effect from sand to water, to sky and sun....  The rest of the card is really simply put together.  I stamped the lawn (beach) chair and colored it with copic markers, I cut my nestie frame and tied a couple ribbons to the edge and then I attached everything to my glittered background...

Thanks from me and the rest of the SNS team on this blog hop. Before hopping on to Cammy Vietzke's blog, please leave a comment here on my blog to be eligible for a prize.... Now don't forget to return to Sparkle N Sprinkle so that you can purchase everything you saw while on our blog hop so you too can recreate all of these wonderful projects..

In case you get lost on your blog hopping trip, just return to Sparkle N Sprinkle and look at all of the wonderful projects again...  :)

SNS May Color Challenge

It's time for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge and this month we have a color challenge for you.

I used the Thank you sentiment from the Thanks a Bunch set.  This set can be purchased by going to the SNS Store.  I cut all of my flowers, wet them, crumpled them, let them dry and then shaped them as I wanted them.  I finished them off by adding just a touch of waterfall glitter to the edges of all the flowers for a small amount of sparkle and shine.  The sentiment is stamped with Cordial Red embossing powder.  To finish my flowers I added a small yellow pearl to my centers.  I hope you like my take on the colors this month....

Now it's your turn to use the color scheme and create something.  You don't have to use Sparkle N Sprinkle stamps, but the prize is bigger if you do.  Plus, you have the entire month of May to get your project uploaded.
