Good morning, everyone! Welcome to today’s Tuesday Sketch from Skipping Stones Design. Today is special because, not only do we have a new sketch to play with, it’s also the day that we get to share a new stamp set with you! Lots to share today, so let’s get started.
First off, the sketch. Shannan Tuebner brings another fun sketch this week as our guest sketch artist.
And here’s a look at the brand new set called Sassy Snow. Isn’t it fun?
I love the happy little snowman looking up into the sky like he’s enjoying a fresh winter snowfall, so I chose to use him on my card today.
See that “snow”? If you’d like to make your own, it’s super easy. All you need to do is mix some white acrylic paint with some coarse salt, brush it onto your project, and voila! It would be great for using on altered items such as bird houses. I just saw this idea recently somewhere on the web and can’t remember where. Sorry, I can’t give credit where credit is due for this, but I’m just passing along a great idea.
Also, as a special treat this week, I get to give away a neat little gift. See that ribbon I used on my card? It comes from an Etsy shop called Christopher Pines. The shop owner, Leslie, was so sweet to send all of us design team girls a package of her ribbons and trims to use on our cards this week. Plus, she’s also offering to give away one package of the same ribbons on each of our blogs today. How cool and generous is that?
The ribbons and trims in the package are so pretty. You will get a selection of seam binding, ribbon, and trims in shades of white, silver and cream. The one I used was actually a flat seam binding which I crinkled myself with some water. You could also use spray ink to dye it any color you want.
If you’d like to win a package of pretty ribbons from Christopher Pines be sure to leave a comment on this post. Be sure to also leave a comment on the rest of the design team girls’ posts to increase your chances of winning.
Here’s your blog hop order for today.
