Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Wonderland Blog Hop!
It's been a long hop this time, but I hope you've enjoyed the journey
as much as we've enjoyed taking you there.

If you've arrived by way of the Fabulous Jackie Smith's blog, then you're 
in the right place.  If not, you may want to start back at the beginning
so you don't miss any of the fun AND you don't miss any prizes!
Click here to go back to the beginning.   www.sparklensprinkle.com/blog

I'll list the entire rotation below so you can double check and go back
to anyone you may have missed.

My inspiration for Winter Wonderland was actually a stamp image
called Winter Wonderland.  It just seemed appropriate to use that one.
It's a sweet little snowman image that I colored with my Copics and 
glitzed up using the new Sparkle N Sprinkle Velvet Glitters.
If you haven't tried them yet, prepare to be amazed!  They actually 
feel like velvet!!! There are tons of ideas in the Tips & Techniques section
of the Sparkle N Sprinkle website devoted to all the fun ways to use
this fabulous product and I know that some of the other designers
have already shown you some of them.


I've layered the snowman on a few Spellbinder die cuts including one
of my new favorites from the Floral Ovals collection.
The beautiful snowflake background CS is from Recollection
Holiday Glitzy Glitter Collection and feels
 just like the velvet glitters!   The red and cream CS is from
Authentique's Festive Collection and to make it appear to match the 
snowflake background, I covered it with 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and covered the 
entire thing with Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter.
Now it's a perfect match.
A little pink pearl flourish bling from EVA Creatives and
ribbon from May Arts and he's good to go.


You can see how well the two cardstocks match even though one was pre-glittered
and the other was glittered by moi :)


The snow under the snowman was created by using Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hope you enjoyed the hop!
