    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 SparkleNSprinkle.com!

Kelley has very generously offered to give five prizes of YOUR CHOICE of one set!!! The prizes are hidden on various blogs along the hop, so it is important that you visit and comment on each one!

    The hardest part of my card was taking a picture of it, lol. With all the metallic/mirror finish card stock and glittery bling, my camera really wigged out on most of the pics.  I don’t usually do a lot of glittery metallics, but New Year’s is a perfect time to bring on the bling! And it was a lot fun, as well. All of the glittery fronds, the ribbon and even the houndstooth mirror card stock came from the Christmas clearance isles at Michael’s. The silver card stock for the butterfly and sentiment is a recycled/repurposed foil lid from a container. I stamped them with Stazon and on the butterfly, added a touch of color with some Sharpies. It was cut with the matching butterfly die available only at ODBD.

    On the sentiment, I used a Spellbinders circle die and my brand new Grand Calibur. What a wonderful machine! I added the fronds and a bow then arranged the layers on a lavender 5.5 x 4.25 card.

    We will be sharing ideas with you for 3 days using the Dani’s Garden Umbrella, Dani’s Garden Swing, Fairy Dust, Dream Fairy, and Garden Fairies stamp sets.  All you have to do is visit the blogs listed below and leave a comment on each blog, then your name will be entered once for each blog you comment on for a daily drawing of your choice of one of these 5 stamp sets on cling cushion.

    All images, ink, embossing powder, glitter and adhesives are Sparkle N Sprinkle. I’m using the Dani’s Garden Swing set for my card.  I black embossed the curly dot border multiple times to create the frame background. After coloring in the swirls, I cut around the outside and attached it to a black mat.  I also embossed Dani Reading and Dragonfly Thinking. I cut out Dani using one of the Spellbinders Mega Ovals and my out of the box Nestie technique.  I used a flower shape to cut out the sentiment. Both were colored with markers and glitter was added to both dragonflies. Everything is attached to a 4.25 x 5.5 (A2) white card.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
