Die-Versions/Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop


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 Patti'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.  :-)

Here is the card I made for the Blog Hop:


For this 6 1/2 inch by 5 inch card I started with some kraft cardstock for the base of the card.  I cut out a 4 inch oval in the center of the card.  Then I stamped some white paper with the Sparkle N Sprinkle  Pine Forest Stamp and some Versamark, then I covered the trees with Juniper Embossing Powder from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Essentials Collection,  I added some Winter White Embossing Powder from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Essetnials Collection to make some snow mountains in front of the trees.  I used some blue ink to color the sky and then I cut out the Die-Versions Sweet Petite Reindeer in tan paper and I used some Sparkle N Sprinkle Buff Flock on the deer to give him some texture. Then when this was all dry I added that to the card on the underside of the oval.  Next I took a piece of patterned paper, cut the oval in the center and added that to the card top.


Next I cut out the Die-Versions Whispers Scrolly Bow in red paper and added some Versamark and then some Winter Berry Embossing Powder from the Winter Essentials Collection and then heat embossed it and added it to the card under the oval.
 Here is a close up of the Die-Versions Whispers Scrolly Bow covered with Winter Berry Embossing Powder from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Essentials Collection.


Next I cut out the Die-Versions Whispers Snowflake Corner die in white paper and used Versamark on it and added the Winter White Embossing Powder to it and heat embossed it, and then added it to the card so that it hangs over into the oval.


And to finish off the card I used a Versamark pen around the edges and I added the Winter Berry Embossing Powder from the Winter Essentials Collection and then heat embossed it.  And that is my card for the Blog Hop.  Please be sure to go to all the stops and see all the beautiful projects!


Your next stop on the blog hop is Belinda


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.

  3. You weren't kidding when you said the comment bar way pretty far down :-) Sorry I couldn't help to reduce the spacing. Love the scene you've created and that flocked deer is fabulous peeking through.

  4. To reduce the spacing - can you not just go into your post, go to the end and delete the excess space ? Anyhow, I love this card, the papers, dies and little scene are wonderful. Have a great weekend.
