Exciting & New at Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hi Everyone - Been having a lot of computer issues over the last couple months & it's been acting up for the last several days again.  My computer is quite old & way over due for being updated (ahem, I mean replaced); so I guess that's to be expected.  But issues & trying to fix issues keeps taking me away from time I'd rather to be posting things.  But I didn't want anyone to miss out on some of the exciting news that has been happening at Sparkle N Sprinkle.  So even though it's later than I wanted; I still wanted to pass along some updates from SNS so you don't miss out on anything!

First, if you haven't heard yet, SNS just added 9 great new & diverse artists to the Design Team last week.  I am always so honored to be a part of this great team and am so excited to see all the new & interesting things that each of these ladies is going to bring to SNS.  They each have their own unique artistic style and I'm really looking forward to getting to know each of them & I just know you're going to as well.  Each of their blogs is listed on my sidebar & I hope when you have a chance you'll take a moment to get to know them a little bit better through their blogs!  So to each of my new team mates, welcome again - Amanda, Angie, April, Charlene, Gerlinde, Jessica, Karalee, Lana, & Shanna!  So excited to get the chance to work with each of you!

Next, this isn't exactly brand new either; but I do have something new to share with you.  Sparkle N Sprinkle now sells smaller stamp sets called Stampettes that just became available this fall.  These fun little sets come in a variety of themes (with more to come) and are a really great price.  So to get you in the "swing of things" with these new Stampettes - I have a new card to share with you using one of these great little economical sets!

This sweet little card was created using the lovely Blossoms to Go Stampette Set 440 (which also coordinates with Set 429 Blossoms & Spellbinders Blossom 3 dies which makes this set extra versatile).  There's four great florals, 3 sayings, and a great little floral flourish all packed into this great set; so you really get your money's worth out of this set!

For this card, I started with a beautiful My Mind's Eye floral card - which I promptly cut apart and made into layers.  Typical maneuver isn't it.....we see something really pretty & then we still have to cut it apart and change it - lol!  Well, I did really love this floral & loved that it wasn't in more "traditional" floral colors.  For something a little different, the muted blues & greens on the brown really called to me.  And I thought it was the perfect background to call attention to the saying piece I had in mind.  For that piece, I put two dotted daisies behind the saying to tie it into the background floral & then the saying itself was made to stand out by embossing it with one of my favorites - Teddy Brown embossing powder.  The embossing powder really makes the saying pop out & come to life.  That whole piece was layered onto a Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle.  I attached the oppsite side of the Spellbinders rectangle piece than you would probably normally use for a little extra interest and because I thought it looked a little more "lacely" on that side.  I really liked the effect.

With that lovely saying, I think this would make a really sweet card for lots of different occasions - birthdays, weddings, thinking of you, or even just a note.  There's so many things you could use this for.  I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did!  Full directions for this card can be found in the SNS Art Gallery Here.  And since the subject of this post is "New"- fyi, SNS has even more new stamps, glitters, and embossing powders coming out; so make sure to stop by for more details on those too! 

Don't forget - I love it when you leave a comment before you hop on by & thanks a bunch for stopping by!

Many trainers eschew the usage of shock collars because they're a unfavorable approach but usually I find that these same trainers are using negative methods.
