SNS Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle  Blog Hop encore!
 If you hopped here by way of the fabulousy artsy Erika, then you're in the right spot. If you would like to start from the beginning and become eligible for all the great prizes, then click here .

I have three cards to share with you  today.  The first one says "classic"  with it's forest green, bronze, Fleur De Lis and the 1902 Curved Dash Olds.  You can find out how to put this classic model together here.
Here is a close up of the 1902 Olds in Butterscotch Embossing Powder and the sentiment in Forest Green Embossing Powder. You can find the Olds and sentiment here. Would you believe the stamp set is on sale this month at SNS.


Now for my second card . Who would not want to be King for the Day, whether it is Fathers Day or a Birthday.  Here  Leo is decked out with his crown jewels and posing  on a  royal striped carpet of 
    Sparkle N Soft . The directions for this card can be found here.

For the Grand Finale, this is what we all should be doing....Winning!. You can find the directions to this winning card here. The frog in this card is fretting or sweating highlighted with Waterfall Glitter  G1071.  He is on a  Spellbinders Wonky Square  and behind him is a wacky background which has Passion Fruit Embossing Powder EP323, Frosted Juniper Embossing Powder EP406, and my donation towards the Grand Prize Orange Marmalade Embossing Powder EP323. The Orange Marmalade looks wonderful on purple, green, navy blue and maroon as shown here.  Show me your winning card with Orange Marmalade I would love to see it.

Wow! What great cards, Linda. Love the metallic look on the first card, the glittery appeal of the second card, and the great texture with multiple colors of EP on the 3rd card! I'm also jealous of your perfectly tied bow! Thanks for treating my eyes to your talents!

Gina said...

I love the metallic look on the first card. I thought you used metal. Thanks for the great ideas.

Ciao Bella! said...

I love it when I card makes me burst out laughing -- so very, very creative Linda. Loved them all. You went from elegant in a masculine way, to funny and funky. Can I wear that crown one day?

Our Sparkle Adventure said...

Thanks for making great cards for the blog hop, Linda!

Judy Rozema said...

I LOVE the lion's crown and his beautiful carpet, and the car looks amazing on the first one with those Spellbinders dies! But my favorite is the background of the third - what a brilliant idea!! SUPERB!

Sondra Evans said...

Love this!! The detail you've provided is amazing! I especially love the "WINNING!" card. It's hilarious in so many ways... but I mostly love how you did the background. Very beautiful and creative.

lakeslady said...

Just love the King for a Day design and that lion looks fantastic with the crown on his head.

Julie- justwritedesigns said...

These are terrific, Linda! Love the embossing and masculine color schemes. The crown jewels are such fun on the second and I love the wonky squares on the last. Great job!

Susan said...

'Winning' card is winning my vote ... love the lion too! You have a fabulous talent!

Nana Connie said...

Linda, Such fantastic cards! Love the classic car with those masculine colors. The Lion king is adorable with his crown, but I love the frog most of all! He's really sweating things out and the Waterfall is the perfect touch. Incredible bow on that card! Such great inspiration. Thanks so much.

Alice Weissman said...

So very masculine!! so very old fashioned at first and then modern and funny at the end. I want the crown!!!!
You turned a simple card into elegance!!

jennifer said...

very nice, love the first one and the next two are so fun!

Each card is a winner with one being a little traditional and the last two whimsical..neat!

carol.drumwright said...

My husband always enjoys a good pun, so I can't help but love the "King for a day" card. Love the crown and all the bright colors. Just too cute!

Anonymous said...

All three of your cards are wonderful! The classic car is so elegant. Leo is cute with his jeweled crown, and the Orange Marmalade EP on the frog card is stunning.

Donna said...

You've done a fantastic job in creating cards everyone will feel inspired by, Linda! The background technique on "winning" is fabulous All three cards present with textured backgrounds, and wonderful elements! Thanks for bringing such diverse inspiration to the Hop!

What a cute card using Leo as the "king" for the day. LOVE the background you used with the frog image. Brenda

Kathy Vogel said...

I love the Sparkle'N'Soft carpet under the lion. The crown & fleur de lis are very attractive as well. The color scheme on the frog card is stunning.

ChrisD said...

Great- so different. Wish I had your creative mind! Thanks for the inspiration!

joy said...

All wonderful cards - the frog card made me giggle -- he is so cute!

Lisa said...

Love the cards, especially the cars. The last "winning" one made me think of Charlie Sheen, ha, ha.

chipielolo said...

All three of your cards are so different and yet, they are all three beautiful. It would be difficult for me to choose one. Your embossing of the car is really incredible. Funny frog and lion king...

Shona Erlenborn said...

King for a Day! He's my favorite! Shona

Kathie said...

The rug for the Lion is just too cute!

Pat P. said...

Like all three. Leo and the frog cards really stand out for me, like all the techniques. Great cards.

carrie said...

All great cards! Love Leo with the jewel crown and his royal striped carpet of Sprinkle N Soft.

Diana said...

The classic car looks like it was embossed on leather from a distance. Very nice!

AngelaP said...

Leo is my fave. I like all you cards
Thanks

ednamburgess said...

Love the first card with the classic car. The colors and design are perfect for any man. Edna

Priscilla said...

Great cards. Loved them all but my favorite is the classic car card. Looks like leather.
Thanks for sharing.

Susannah said...

The nervous frog card would be perfect to give to someone before a big event. Pair it with chocolate(and if to an adult, a reference to Monty Python's Crunchy Frog sketch).

Julie Z said...

Hard pressed to pick a favorite Linda. I think I like the first the best - so elegant with such great colors too. But love the idea of the second card. And really like how the background came out on the third - that turned out so neat! Great group of cards!

PJ said...

Butterscotch embossing powder? I would never have thot to use it on an olde car - LOVE it!

April said...

I love all your cards. Each one is unique. You have done a great job. I love the first one with its vintage look.

tarastorm62 said...

I love the vintage feel to the classic car cards. Beautiful work.

Char said...

Great cards. Three very masculine ideas for cards. Love the vintage car and the Frog is terrific, and King for a day is wonderful. Yhanks for some great ideas. Charlene

Beth said...

I'm a sucker for bronze and copper ~ that lovely antiquey feel! It makes for a great masculine note to any card. The lion king made me laugh and is such a cute card-for-a-guy! And your frog card is also fantastic! I'm guessing you used a brayer with rubber bands? It turned out really cool!!

Barbara said...

What fun cards, all so different, but so beautiful. I am completely enamoured of the classic car. It's such an elegant card. Love them all. Thank you for sharing them!

NWFlamingo said...

The Lion sticking out his tongue is too funny. It is like he is saying "Na, na, na,na,na!

Dianne said...

What a wonderfully divers selection of cards! I love the classic card, but the lion is too too cute for words. Loved them all. Thank you for sharing!

barbara bruder said...

Love your 3 great cards but I especially love the 1st one, my fav.

veronica said...
