Die-Versions/Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop

                                       

Welcome to the Die-Versions and Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop!

The joint blog hop with Die-Versions and Sparkle N Sprinkle begins today (7am EST) and goes until Aug 17th (5pm EST), so there will be plenty of time to check out all the great projects created by both teams.  The theme is Christmas, so you'll get lots of great inspiration for your upcoming Holiday cards.

Die-Versions manufactures low profile dies made right here in the United States and Sparkle N Sprinkle manufactures rubber stamps, glitters, embossing powders, and flocking, also made in the US.  This is like a match made in heaven - low profile dies combined with lots of bling!  Doesn't get much better than that.

One winner will receive a Grand Prize consisting of a $50 gift certificate from Die-Versions and a $50 gift certificate from Sparkle N Sprinkle, for a total of $100.  The winner will be announced on Aug 17th on both the DV Blog and the SNS Blog as well as their Facebook pages.

In order to be eligible for the Grand Prize, please: 
  • Leave a comment on each Designer's blog
  • Follow both companies on Facebook (DV Facebook pageSNS Facebook page) if you haven't already so you can keep up to date on all the latest goings on.   (I'm sure that all of the Designers would love for you to Follow them too, but that isn't a requirement to win this prize.)  

You should have arrived here from LISA's blog.  If not, then you should begin at the Die-Versions Blog and end at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog.  If you get lost along the way, you can go to either the DV Blog or the SNS Blog to see the complete list of participants.

We'd love it if you'd like to leave a comment at either the DV Blog or the SNS Blog telling us which projects were your favorites.  :-)

Here's what I created:
Die-Versions "Deer Ornaments" Whispers DVW-388, Die-Versions "Peace on Earth" Sweet Wordlets DVSW-043, Sparkle N Sprinkle "Victorian Christmas" Opaque G1054. Loved making this!  That two sided sticky paper is a crafter's dream!

I wish that ya'll could see this one in real life.  OH MY GOODNESS!  This die is the Die-Versions "Merry Christmas Script" Whispers DVW-405.  It is heat embossed twice with Sparkle N Sprinkle's "Winter Berry" EP411.  It is GORGEOUS!

Sparkle N Sprinkle's beautiful stamp "Pine Forest" #3379-414P, Die-Versions "Peace on Earth" Sweet Wordlets DVSW-043, Sparkle N Sprinkle "Frosted Juniper" EP406, Sparkle N Sprinkle "Winter White" EP409.
