Camping


Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle June New Release.  This month, FIVE new stamp sets are being introduced. Until June 3, the sets are 20% off their regular price (no promo code needed). The Camera Life rubber stamp set is available on Cling Mounted Rubber, as a digital image, and is also included in Technique Video Kit for this month.



The sets are:




Travelin (camper) #630 (Digital Stamp Set available)

plus



 Cruisin' Digital Stamp Set #Digi629, which contains all the cars and trucks, including a VW Beetle #Digi629.2, is available. 





My card features two of the new sets, Vintage Pickup and Travelin'.  I actually used the digi versions as I wanted to reverse the direction of the pickup truck (plus I made them a little larger).  I could have also used a reversing stamp to get the same results, but this was quicker for me.


After printing all of the images, including the picnic table and umbrella from the Travelin' digi set, I colored the images with Copic markers and fussy cut them out.  I added a couple of strips of 1/4" Tear-ific tape to the camper and covered the exposed adhesive with Blue Jewel glitter.  Dimensional Glue was added to the hub caps on the Vintage PickUp and covered with Sonic Silver velvet glitter.  All of the windows on both vehicles are covered with Glossy Accents.  Glossy Accents was also added to the picnic table tablecloth and Starfire glitter was immediately sprinkled into the wet adhesive, reminiscent of those old sparkly plastic tablecloths that were used for outdoor eating :-).


The background was created by brayering Distress Inks onto white cardstock.  The tree in the background is by Die-Versions (Spring Tree) and the birds are part of the die.  I've added blossoms to the tree using Sizzix's Flower, Forsythia die.  The flowers were cut from Sticker paper and Bubble Gum glitter was added to the adhesive portion of the paper.  I saved the backings from each of the die cut flowers and these became the white blossoms on the tree.  Liquid Pearls was added to each of the centers.  All of the leaves are covered with Dimensional Glue and Lator Gator velvet glitter.

The new SNS Creative Challenges also begins today, with lots of prizes and recognition badges. 

The winners of the blog hop will be announced on June 3 on Facebook, the SNS blog, and on our blogs:


Enjoy checking out all the great creations from the Designers and don't forget to leave a comment for each of us to be eligible for winning one of these fabulous new sets.
