Skipping Stones Design Grand Reopening/New Release Blog Hop – Day 1


Hi everyone,

today I have a special post for you! A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the brand-new design team of a returning stamp company located in the US – Skipping Stones Design. I'm glad to join them and we start with a fun Blog Hop. 

Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Grand Reopening/New Release Blog Hop. Skipping Stones Design has been around since 2005 but unofficially closed down for a few years while the owner Heather Timmins took some time off to graduate from school and she finally did! Congratulations Heather! So now she's back with a new design team, stamps and more …

Heather is offering free shipping to EVERYONE to celebrate - enter 'freeship' at checkout.

We hope you enjoy all the amazing design team projects along this Blog Hop and of course their is a prize up for grabs! You can win a $25 credit to the SSD storeSo make sure you leave a comment at each stop. Commenting will be left open until Saturday, August 8th and the winner will be announced on Monday, August 10th!

Now here is the card I created:

It's no secret that I simply love butterflies *giggle*, so I stamped my whole background with a solid stamp from the Breathtaking Butterflies set. I used Altenew and Simon Says Stamp Dye Inks in a pastel color palette and my MISTI to get these crisp impressions. The sentiment is from the Heartsong stamp set and I heat embossed it in white and cut a little banner. I put some silver thread behind it and adhered it with foam tape. For the edges of my panel I used one of the «Stitched Borders» from Lawn Fawn.

Now everyone let's start hopping and we hope you enjoy all the creations along the way and should you get lost, below is the complete line-up:
