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 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.
