Happy New Year and
Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's January 1 Reveal.

We hope you enjoy all the new SNS products in 2014.
Among them are new, less expensive stamp sets, our own line of digital stamps, and an exclusive line of designer papers to match our glitters and embossing powders.
This month we are featuring four fun new stamp sets by artists Michelle P erkett and Beccy Muir (whose design team is also showcasing her new images) 
and EIGHT chances to win

Four chances in our "January 1 Reveal" Contest (details below)
four more chances with the SNS monthly challenge where the monthly theme is always
"Anything Goes with Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking."

The Spunky Valentine stamp set is available on line or is included in Jazzy Jill's Technique Video for the month.

I chose to use the new Spunky Valentine stamp set, glittering my hearts up with Gypsy Red Velvet Glitter on top of a dry embossed background - making a "hearty" background!  I stamped Spunky twice - once on cardstock, colored with Copics and the other on cardstock covered with Super Adhesive Sheet then Snow White flocking, stamping the image directly on top of the flocking. I cut out the white stripes and stuck them to the colored image, giving some fluffy dimension!

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Red Apple, before removing the die after cutting and embossing, I distressed it with a little Angel Pink Memento ink:

  18. What a cute valentine for some lucky person!

  19. Very traditional colors bring out the smiles for this valentine card. Very cute

  20. Hi Shona,
    Cute card & I like your slick trick of stamping right on top of flocking. I have trouble trying to spread the glue into area needed so this will be a BIG help for me. Cutting things out isn't any problem but with a shaky hand spreading the glue only into areas I want is very difficult. So I'm filing your trick away in my brain for future use.
    Thanks for the great idea & thank you also for sharing your cute card with us. Linda Gibb

  21. I have to smile every time I see Spunky. He is so stinking cute. He made a great Valentine card. Rocco must be out in the woods or around some trees - can't wait to see the rest of the card. thanks for sharing.

  22. Love the glitter hearts and the Spunky stamp set!

  23. Cute and sweet!!!
