Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop

***This is my second post for today. If you'd like, look here for my previous post.***



Hello, and welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop. This is a hop to celebrate the release of two new sets, Sentiment Frames #1 and Brrthday. Today the Design Team and Guests of Skipping Stones Design will be featuring cards using Sentiment Frames #1.

Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday and here is the sketch I design for the occasion...

Here is what I came up with...
Onto a kraft cardstock block I stamped one of the frames from Sentiment Frames #1 in Vintage Cream ink. Inside the frame, I stamped the sentiment (also from the same set) in Dark Chocolate. Rounded the bottom corners, tied with Dark Chocolate ribbon and attached to a Dark Chocolate card base.
Embellished the frame with a few hand rolled Scarlet Jewel flowers (tutorial on how to make these found here, at the bottom of the post) for a pop of color.

Now, stop by and see what the SSD team has come up with for you today...

We'd love for you to play along with us and design a card using the sketch! If you do join in, please share with us and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog here. A free stamp set is up for grabs to one lucky winner as well! I hope to see your creations soon!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great one!

Maile

Congratulations:
