Die- Versions/Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop

DV/SNS Blog Hop - Designer's Post


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 pageSNS 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.)  

You should have arrived here from Archana's blog.  If not, then you should begin at the Die-Versions Blog and end at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog.  If you get lost along the way, you can go to either the DV Blog or the SNS Blog to see the complete list of participants.

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.  :-)



Hi Everyone! I am glad you stopped by our blog hop today. I had so much fun making my card with the Die-Versions Winter Cottage and Tis The Season dies. They went perfectly with the Sparkle N Sprinkle  A Winter Wonderland 517 stamp! I stamped the scene, colored it with copics and then cut around the evergreen tree and deer with a craft knife. I then placed the Winter Cottage die behind the tree and deer and it fit perfectly.



I added the Tis The Season die at the bottom of the card. On the evergreen tree and cottage I added white Liquid Applique and sprinkled in some Sparkling Snow glitter G1003 before I heat set it. I added some Sticker Paper 9558 behind the windows and added Lemonade glitter G1091.



Sparkling Snow glitter was also added to the forest trees.

Your next stop on the blog hop is Mayra.

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.

I hope you have a wonderful day!  April

Okay sorry this is my new favorite card from the hop, I adore everything about it, the yellow lighted windows, the trees half covered in sparkle and the deer just great.
