Welcome to our February Blog Hop! We at Sparkle N Sprinkle are teaming up with the crew at Really Reasonable Ribbon to show you some amazing projects using SNS glitters, flocking, stamps and embossing powders and some really pretty ribbon from the February Ribbon Kit from RRR.

If you came here from Cheryl Walker’s Blog, you are in the right place! If not, you may want to go to Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog so you’ll be able to start from the beginning.

For my card, I started by doing a brayered background on white c/s using only the yellow/orange/pink sections of a rainbow pad. All of the images were then stamped using black ink and I sponged on a little more color under the ducks. With a very small acrylic paintbrush, I applied bleach to the flowers. Since I used a non-waterproof dye ink, the color bleached out perfectly. I used a white gel pen to help accent the swirls on the ducks and then applied  glue to these areas as well as the flower centers. I sprinkled on Sparkling Snow glitter on some flowers and Sunny Daze glitter on the rest then edged it w/ a black marker.

The only real difference in these cards is the treatment of the black layer. On the top version, I used a border punch on three sides and on the bottom version, I used a scallop edge die. On both, the sentiment was die cut w/ a small oval die and part of the crochet lace ribbon was added at the bottom of the image panel. I used a sunny yellow diamond ribbon for my bows and threaded a piece of the same crochet ribbon through the knot. Both are attached to 5.5 x 4.25 white cards.

In addition to the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog candy, Sparkle N Sprinkle is giving a stamp set to one lucky hopper!  Leaving a message on every blog increases your chances of winning, because it’s a mystery which of the artists’ blogs has been chosen to house the prize! On Tuesday February 15, a name will be drawn from the comments on the mystery blog. Winner gets to choose a stamp set of their choice from!
