Skipping Stones Design Sketch 119 & A Blog Hop

Please scroll down or click here for the latest Ribbon Carousel Challenge

Hello, hello!  Today marks another sketch at the Skipping Stones Design Blog and a fabulous blog hop with Scor-Pal!  You should have arrived from the Scor-Pal blog.  Along with using the Scor-buddy for our cards, the team is focusing on a brand new set called Beautiful Botanicals.  I always loved Dandelion Dreams for it's lovely silhouette images and Beautiful Botanicals follows in it's wake, ranking among my favorites.  Here is what I created using the sketch and set as well as the Scor-Pal.


Taking the Sor-Buddy from ScorPal, I created a textured background on my card base.


I then stamped the large silhouette image, heat embossed it in white and trimmed it into four equal sections.  I mounted those sections onto white cardstock, and adhered them to my card base with foam.


I then took my sentiment, white embossed it, notched the end and adhered it to the card front.


Lastly, I threaded a big button with twine!

Here is a look at the sketch by Angi Barr, our guest sketch artist for March:


I hope you hop along with us today as we showcase this awesome stamp set.  ***Don't forget to leave comments on your visits!  Skipping Stones Design will be giving away one stamp set to a lucky winner and Scor-Pal is giving away a Scor-Buddy, so there is lots to win!  Your next stop on the hop is the lovely Diane Zechman's blog.  Have a great day!
