Challenge Guidelines

SNS Creative Challenge Guidelines


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


To be fair to everyone, if you use glitter, it must be loose glitter.   Basically, it's anything that already has glitter already added in or adhered to it beforehand.   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. 



Clarifications:

When using glitter, please use loose glitter.  To be fair to everyone, that means the following are NOT eligible (basically anything that already has glitter added in or adhered to it beforehand):
~ glitter pens
~ glitter markers
~ glitter glue
~ glitter paint
~ pre-glittered papers
~ pre-glittered embellishments

- Please be sure to include the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge link in your challenge list if you are entering the SNS Creative Challenge -- linking back to the SNS Challenge blog is a rule.

- If using embossing powder, please mention in your blog post which part of your project it's on.  Sometimes, it's very hard to tell from the photo.

Thanks for joining us and have fun creating!
  • Challenges will go from the 1st - 25th of the each month.  
  • Create a new project for each entry (no backlinking please).  
  • Enter as many times as you wish, with a new creation each time.
  • Link directly to the specific post, not your entire blog.
  • SNS reserves the right to delete any entries that are not linked to a personal blog, photo account, personal gallery, or who do not adhere to the theme.
  • If you don’t have a blog, you can upload your projects to Pinterest, Splitcoast Stampers, Facebook, Flickr, Outlaws and then link to our challenge that way.  (We may or may not be able to leave comments on sites that require an account to see the photos.)
  • Images from any company are accepted, but if you us a SNS image, you automatically become a Featured Artist AND your project will be showcased on both the SNS Challenge Blog and the SNS Facebook page. (Yay!) AND you will have a badge to display on your blog.  This is in addition to possibly winning! NOTE: Please leave a comment on our blog if you use one of our images, so we will know to look for it.
  • Winners will be announced on the last day of the month on the Creative Challenge Blog and the SNS Facebook page.
  • There are 4 prize winners each month plus Honorable Mentions as explained below.  
  • The SNS Designers choose the Top Three and each winner will receive 2 digi images of their choice, plus the SNS Top Three Badge to proudly display on your blog.
  • A Random winner, chosen with the help of random.org, will receive one digi image of his/her choice, plus the SNS Winner Badge.
  • Honorable Mentions are for projects that we loved, but didn’t make it into the Top Three. All the Honorable Mentions can download a badge as well.
  • Winners download their badges by clicking on the “Did You Win?” Button in the top left corner of the Home page or the "Winner Badges" button in the page tabs at the top.
  • Winners, please contact Anne by the 8th of the following month so I can get your prizes out to you right away. 
·      The SNS Designers try very hard to visit everyone’s blog, but due to the wonderful participation we’re having, a few may be missed.  We apologize if that happens.

If you have any questions, please contact Anne at icinganne@yahoo.com.
