How about a little Sparkle?



Today I want to introduce you to my friend Sparkle Smith of Sparkle Creations. She's a Copic extraordinaire and her cards are always so pretty and sparkly! :) She also recently started her own rubber stamp store Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps . She's here to share what inspires her creatively and her must-haves for creating. Of course, she's also issuing a challenge...with an amazing prize (did I not mention she has a store??) for one lucky person! You have to read on to find out more! ;)

But first, let's have a look at some of her stunning creations! 



***************************************


What inspires me creatively?
My true passion started with interior design.  I love matching furniture together and I love mixing patterns.  I get most of my inspiration from just looking at things all around me.  Books, clothes, pictures, other people's blogs, etc.  I carry around a little notebook and if I see something that inspires me, I jot down color combinations.  Being a former Close To My Heart consultant, I tend to label the world in those colors. :)

My Local Scene 
I'm lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, as there are many local stamp companies that were founded here in the Seattle area.  A few of those are A Muse, Ellen Hudson, Savvy Stamps, Impress Rubber Stamps, There She Goes, and of course my own company, Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.

My Must Haves
Stickles - With a name like Sparkle, you can't get away from the glitter!
Copics
Prima Flowers
Rhinestones
Buttons
Glue Dots
Sewing Machine


*******************************************

So what's the challenge? Sparkle would like you to create a project inspired by your dream vacation. Here's her take on the challenge...


And one random player gets to win ...

Isn't that a delightful stamp? This stamp isn't even for sale yet. It's a new release! So, get cracking and link up your creations in the comments section of this post. The deadline is August 24! :)

As always, please leave a little love for my guest! Thanks! :)
