Sketch Desinger For Skipping Stones Desing

Hello! This month, I'm guest sketch designer for Skipping Stones Design. Check them out here. Today I'm featuring a card using the latest sketch - SSD#54... For today's card, I started with a kraft card base and attached a piece of yellow Happy Spots pattern paper. Wrapped the base twice with chocolate baker's twine and tied into bows.
I combined today's sketch with the Heartsong stamp set, a pre-release set that will be available in January 2011. Stamped a die cut Mat Stack #4 with the bird on a branch image. Stamped the image a second time onto Lavender Moon cardstock, cut out the bird and attach with dimensional adhesive. Attached the stamped Mat Stack to the card base with dimensional adhesive. Stamped the card base with a few music notes and finished the card off with a few more hand cut music notes.
Here's a look a the SSD#54 sketch I designed. As you can see, I basically flipped the sketch. For some reason, I usually have a hard time sticking to the exact layout of a sketch. Always looking for a way to add my own spin (even if it is my own sketch, it's a good way to keep design ideas fresh and new).

Be sure to stop by Skipping Stones Design blog for more details and for a look at what the rest of the Skipping Stone Design Team has come up with.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great one!

  10. Maile! This is absolutely fantastic! I love what you have done with this SS stamp set. I too have a hard time using sketches as "is" and tend to put my own little spin on them! I am excited as I just received my first SS stamps and can't wait to use them! (now I NEED this one!) .......Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment and yes I so enjoy working with Kim! Happy Holidays!
