Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle
 October New Reveal Blog Hop!

We are now revealing our new stamp sets on the 15th of each month.  On the first of the month, a new video kit club will be revealed.


We are continuing to add new product lines, so be on the look out for them.  

We have four new rubber stamp sets and one digi only stamp set being revealed this month.  

The sets are:

Lovely As A Leaf 869
(Digital Version: DIGI869FS)

And now a little bit about my card!

I used the Gus - Fish Whisperer digi stamp for my reveal card. I love this grumpy old man and his fish. Using my computer, I sized and printed out the pre-colored image onto white cardstock. I partial die cut the image using Tonic Studios Mixed Edge Oval Layering Basics Die Set, and avoided the fishing rod end that poked outside of the oval. I fussy cut around the fishing pole. Then, I matted the oval with black cardstock. Here is the card using the Step Card Base.

I printed out several extra fish in multiple sizes. I fussy cut all the fish, and then rolled on some Nuvo Glue Pen Small pen and sprinkled on Pinkerbell glitter to them. I layered one of the extra fish over the fish on the rod. Here is the closeup.

I used a lot of other glitters too. For Gus's pants, I used Mermaid and Pinkerbell glitters. I also used Creamsicle and Sunset glitters on the cattails, and Easy Green on the leaves. Here is a close up of all of this gorgeousness!

I also printed out one of the sentiments, and then die cut it with the Tonic Studios Mixed Edge Oval Layering Basics Die Set, and also die cut the next larger size. I then used the Midnight Shadows Glitter Marker set and colored the outer edge of the two ovals with the silver and the blue markers from this set. This photo doesn't even capture how awesome and sparkly these glitter markers are!

I had decided to create this card using the Step Card Base, but needed to add some more color and images to the card base itself. Because I was using the digi version of this stamp set, I went back to my computer and created more. I cropped the bottom of the image, under Gus's feet, and then increased the size of the image and made it really huge. I also cropped and flipped the cattail image and put the two mirror images side by side and printed out all of these. I die cut the cattail images with the Tonic Studios Mixed Edge Oval Layering Basics Die Set, for the image and the black cardstock matting. I trimmed the blown up image of the ground under Gus's feet, using my Tonic Studio 12" Wide Base Craft Guillotine cutter (which I LOOOVE!). Then, I layered everything onto the step card base using the Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. I also adhered a pile of glittered, fussy cut fish to show that Gus has had a great day of fishing. I dusted off all the excess glitter using the Glitter Brush, and, then this card was done!

I love all the stamps for this reveal, and I know you will too. I am the last stop on the blog hop, so if you haven't hopped all along the way, start at Jess's blog, and make sure you comment on ALL the blogs to be eligible to win the prize!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
