Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Grand Openning!

I'm going to take a quick break from Convention news to introduce you to a brand new Rubber Stamp Company that you are going to LOVE!!!

Welcome to the Grand Opening blog hop for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps!  To start at the beginning of the blog hop, please go to the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.

Sparkle and I met a few years ago through Close To My Heart.  We became great friends, and when she moved to the greater Seattle area, we started getting together monthly for Girls Crafty Nights! 

Sparkle is an amazing artist, and she has a wonderful eye for color.  She's been on several design teams, and over the past year or so, decided to take the plunge and start her own rubber stamp company.

Today is an exciting day as we are releasing 8 new darling stamps!  And we're giving away a ton of prizes!  One lucky person will win the grand prize of all 8 images!!!  There are also 5 single stamp prizes hidden, so make sure you comment on everyone's blogs!  You will have until midnight Eastern time to comment and the winners will be announced on the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps blog.

Here is the card I made with the adorable stamp "Cupcake Ruby". (obviously I love the name as well as the stamp!)  I used Indian Summer papers from Basic Grey, and Close To My Heart cardstock in Chocolate, Vineyard Berry, and Goldrush.  I also added some CTMH basic craft buttons and hemp, and a sparkle in her hair.


Sparkle will be offering free standard shipping for all orders over $25 for the weekend (til midnight EST Sunday), and the code is FREESHIP.  Thank you for stopping by and now it's time to go to Lisa's blog!  

And in case you need a list of all the blogs in the hop - here you go!

I couldn't take my eyes off the spotty paper & how you'd used the colours of that for colouring your image. There's an elegance to this somehow.
