April 2014 Challenge

All of the March 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. 

Do you have what it takes to be a SNS Featured Artist?  The answer is YES if you own any SNS image (digi or rubber) and you submit a project here. When you do, not only are you featured on the SNS Winners post, but you are also featured on SNS's Facebook page and you can upload a badge to proudly display on your blog.

For the month of April, it gets even better!  If you use a Sparkle N Sprinkle image in your Creative Challenge project, not only do you get all of the above, but your name will also be entered in a separate drawing for 3 Ultrafine Glitters and/or Embossing Powders! How awesome is that!?! 

Now on to our newest stamp sets.  This month we have five new Reveals, all of which will be 20% off until April 3rd (no promo code needed).  When you sign up for the Technique Video Kit Club, you will get April Showers in this month's kit.

Diamond Medallion #530
April Showers #555

Crackle Background #609
Ellie the Elephant #553

Flamingo Bay #512

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 April 1-2.  The winners will be announced on April 3, so hurry on over to the shoppe once you've checked out all the great projects from the designers.

You can click on the Designer's names, which will take you to their blog posts, for directions or go to the SNS Art Gallery.  You may search by category or type in the Designer's name in the Search box to quickly find the project you're looking for.

Now it's your turn to get creative and link up your projects. You can enter as many times as you wish, as long as each project is a new project.  No backlinking please.  (See Guidelines for more details.)  NoteIf you use an SNS image, please also leave a comment below so we make sure to give you special recognition as a Featured Artist. You have until April 25th to participate and the winners will be announced on April 30th.  Happy Crafting!

For your featured artist, can we use an SNS Beccy Muir image or should it be SNS? Thanks for a fun challenge!

Anne Temple said...

In answer to the above question, as long as the image was purchased from Sparkle N Sprinkle and SNS is mentioned in the blog post, it is acceptable.

Such pretty work, inspiring designs and projects! I have used stamps from the Mermaid and the Nature sets. My time at the store doing the technique classes was the best.
Hugs, JoyceAnn

Jill is a great teacher, thank you so much for making our Gelli Plate, then our Glitter and Flocking class Rock!! We all had a super time. I just love your store way too much!
The DTs samples are just way stunning! Thanks for the inspiration!

Love the new stamp sets and the inspiration cards from the DT! Wow, that's a lot of sparkle and sprinkle! My card looks like it's wearing a bikini of sparkle compared to those shown, but I managed to emboss the sentiment and add some glue and glitter to the tools on the SNS digi image Workbench.
