August Sparkle N Sprinkle Stamps:

When you purchase the digi versions of any of the SNS rubber sets, you are getting lots of extras that aren't available otherwise.  These extras include additional images not available with the rubber version, digi papers (in some cases), and now a cut file to use with your electronic cutting machines will also be included with all digi images purchased.

All the new digital and rubber stamp sets are 20% during their debut from August 15 - 20.

On August 18th, ONE GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be selected from the comments left on the Designers' blogs listed above. Please leave a comment with each Designer in order to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  It's a Mystery as to which Designer will have the winning comment on her blog.

The Grand Prize Winner, who will be announced on the SNS Facebook page and the SNS Blog, will receive ALL of the new rubber stamp sets revealed this month.

August's sets are:



    My card features Michelle Perkett's sweet Christmas Spirit Fairy:

    I have colored her with Copic Markers. With this digital set, you will receive the black and white images, plus this Copic-colored image. Additionally, the bundle includes another beautiful colored rendition by colorist Anne Temple, and the blue background without the fairy's dress being colored in. Lots of options with this set.

    There are white snowflakes in the background, and a white snowflake border punch on the right side, with a single white snowflake on the left, embellished with a holly sprig:


    The black and red panels are dry embossed and distressed Tonic's Powder Blue Embellish Mousse. The designer paper in the background has been distressed with Tumbled Glass and Memento Paris Dusk inks, then covered with Pacific Teal Embellish Mousse for an interesting effect. 

    Firecracker Red embossing powder was used on the frame and sentiment. Although it is a detail EP, it contains glitter, and still allows the detailed portions of the image to show. The same distressing techniques were used on the simple oval:


    TIP:

    Use various parts of a digital stamp to accessorize your cards:

    I printed a smaller version of the Christmas Spirit Fairy Digital Stamp and cut out two of the holly pieces from her skirt, and adhered them to the sentiment and snowflake on the left:


    Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit everyone's blog in order to be eligible for the grand prize.

    This is so beautiful sweetie. When I get a chance I will do you some embossing but I will have to do it in card not paper as the embossing is so deep. It is 3D. If you email your address I will do it when I can sweetie. It might be a little while.
    Hugs

    Beautiful card! I wish I could color like that, but I guess that's what digit stamps are for lol. Love the snowflakes tucked in the side.

    Leslie Miller said...

    What a cute, cute image and you've colored her so beautifully! You've added some fun elements and pretty embossing... sigh. Inspiring! I really like your cockeyed frame behind the other panels. Took some figuring before you put it together. That little holly sprig with the sentiment is so cute, too. Totally adorable, Donna!
