Skipping Stones Design and The Twinery Co-Hop


Good Morning Everyone and welcome to the Twinery & Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop! Today and tomorrow both teams are partnering up to bring you stamped inspiration along with the twiney goodness you all know, love and expect from The Twinery! If you’ve just come over from the Skipping Stones Design Blog, you’re on the right track. If not, be sure to head over to The Twinery’s Blog where you can find an introduction and a list of all the hoppers today!

For my cards today, I used the Pumpkin Seeds Sentiments set from Skipping Stones Design and paired it with my Lilac twine for two different, but coordinating cards!

I kept things simple with this vertical ‘Thank You’. Simply stamping the pattern stamp and sentiment with Vintage Sepia ink (Versafine) and wrapping twine with a matching lavender button was all the contrast I needed here.

It will be very difficult to tell from this photo, but I actually used Perfect Pearls for my pink diamonds and embossed the diamond pattern on the purple stock. Perfect Pearls are super fun and give such a wonderful dimension that is best appreciated in person. The sentiment “Happy Birthday” was also stamped in Vintage Sepia (Versafine).

I hope you enjoyed my projects today, your next stop on the hop is the incredibly talented JINGLE!!

Don’t forget to visit ALL the blogs in the hop for your chance at two awesome prizes!

Have a wonderful TUESDAY everyone!!
