August 2014 Challenge

All of the July Winners are announced here.

Our theme is always Anything Goes: use loose glitter, embossing powder, and/or flocking.


If you use glitter, it must be loose glitter.  Therefore the following are NOT eligible: glitter pens, glitter markers, glitter glue, pre-glittered papers, pre-glittered embellishments.    Use any image, digital or a rubber, to create your submission.  We'd love it if you used one of the Sparkle N Sprinkle's images and become a Featured Artist. 

Want to be a SNS Featured Artist?  It's easy - just use any SNS image (rubber or digital) and submit it below.  You will be featured on the SNS Facebook page as well as our monthly Winners Post.  You never know when we're going to have extra prizes for our Featured Artists.  Sometimes we may give you advance notice and sometimes you may not know until the winners are announced - so you'll want to participate every month!

THIS MONTH, A FEATURED ARTIST WILL WIN 1 BOTTLE OF GLITTER, 1 BOTTLE OF EMBOSSING POWDER, AND 1 EXCLUSIVE SNS DIGI


Now on to our newest stamp sets.  This month we have six new Reveals, all of which will be 20% off until August 3rd.  When you sign up for the Technique Video Kit Club, you will get the Sunflower, rubber stamp set #643 in this month's kit.



All sets will be available in both a cling rubber version and a digital version:

Knight Owl #632     (Digi version: DIGI632)
Sunflower #643      (Digi version: DIGI643)
A Little Note #645     (Digi version: DIGI645)

For a chance to win one of these sets, please join us for the Mystery Designer Party being held on the SNS Blog going on from Aug 1-2.  The winners will be announced on Aug 3 on the SNS blog and FB page, so hurry on over to the shoppe once you've checked out all the great projects from the designers.
