my dear blogging friends, and my newest Google followers - Vicki, Rachel, Denise, Roberta, Chris,  - and my latest friends from Bloglovin and other Readers!

This month we are bringing you two marvelous new stamp sets by artist Rosiland Solomon with FIVE chances to win.

  1. the first two chances are with our "Winter Wonderland" Release Contest.
  2. three more chances with the SNS monthly challenge where the monthly theme is always "Anything Goes with Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking."

The Winter Wonderland stamp set and the Flourishes Two stamp set are both available on line.
The beautiful Winter Wonderland stamp set is included in Jazzy Jill's Technique Video for the month.

To win, just come to our Mystery Designer Party!




How the Mystery Party works:

On two of the participating blogs below, a Commenter will be selected to receive the prize

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






Both sets are available available at 20% off 
as part of our Wintry specials. 
Just use the code WINTRY20 in the COMMENTS SECTION 
when checking out in the SNS on-line store

Promotion valid through November 3.(sorry, credit card customers only. Total will be manually adjusted. Or phone the SNS shoppe on Wednesday and ask them to manually adjust the charge on the phone for you).




Complete directions for this tag can be found here.


My project today uses only one color of cardstock - WHITE!
This makes it affordable while producing an elegant look.


TIP: If you prefer not using inks on the inside of your embossing folders, emboss your cardstock and then use VersaMark Ink on the embossed piece. By heat embossing with DETAIL EMBOSSING POWDER, every crevice is nicely covered, and the dry embossed areas are plainly visible. SNS carries 24 colors of Detail EPs.


The only color of cardstock used in this project was white. The metallic gold areas were all heat embossed using Gold Tinsel EP or Gold Detail EP.



I darkened the background in the photo (left) so that all the glittery goodness in the Gold Tinsel EP shows up.


The only coloring medium was a single Tombow marker for the doe and bunny.

The bunny is clad with Twinkling Clouds Flocking. The flocking was shaded with the same color Tombow Marker.




Do you see the 3 layers of Fanciful Flourish by Spellbinders? 


The front "layer" (shown above) is actually two gold embossed flourishes, adhered back-to-back with Brushable Glue, so that the gold shows front and back. 


On the flip side (shown left) a third Flourish is attached to adorn the back side of the tag, and to hide the ribbon which was woven through the front.


Having the 3 layers provides good support for the tag as well.
The following products were used on this project:

Old Paper Dye Ink
Cardstock: White
White Lace, Ribbon
Tombow Marker Color 990
Spellbinders Fantastic Flourish Two S2-009
Spellbinders Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles LG S4-143
MS Holly Leaves PATP
EKS Corner Rounder
Swiss Dot embossing folder
Sakura Pen Touch Gold Pen

How did I miss this one? Oh, I didn't do the hop this time. :-D I love gold and white together for holiday cards and projects. Everything you've done is so gorgeous, I don't know where to start with my comments! The lace is exquisite and the filigree on the top is so delicate. Love the sentiment. Fantastic embossing, of course. Wish I was getting a gift from you just so this tag would be on it. :-D
