Sparkle N Sprinkle Christmas in July Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Christmas in July blog hop that runs from July 12th  - July 13th. It has been sweltering in much of the US lately so hopefully this hop will help you cool down a bit! If you have come here by way of Karalee's wonderful blog, then you are in the right place. If not, you might want to start at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to be eligible for the FIVE prizes we are giving away! First of all I want to show you a card I made with our brand new release set -- Woofie. Isn't he cute? I made the sleigh by cutting a wavy line across the Spellbinders labels 8 die. The blades of the sleigh were made by using the antlers from a reindeer die!


When I was young I just loved snow globes and I still do. I had several of them over the years. I decided to make this card a snow globe. I used a snowman from the Merry Crows set.



I used another snowman from this same set on this card. To make a frosty look, I used a used dryer sheet over the snowman that I ran through the Xyron machine and rubbed Waterscape glitter over it for sparkle.


Now for my last card! I used the ornaments from the Nesties Ornaments set. The Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments dies fit with this set for an easy cut.




Just a reminder that through the end of the month, the Sparkle Team presents all the Christmas & Winter, Jewish & Christian images on special – 15% off!  To view all our specials, which also include a few glitters, embossing powders and flocking – just click here.    http://sparklensprinkle.com/o/specials.php
