SSD Sketch Tuesday and new release (Dog’s Volume 1) blog hop!


Hi there!
Welcome to Sketch Challenge 80 and the release of Dogs Vol 1! If you just came from JENNIFER’s blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened to come across my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design.

Be sure to hop along and leave comments on all the fabulous designers blogs. This month we are welcoming the super talented Latisha Yoast, Dina Kowal and Karn Akesdotter to our team as Guest Designers! Latisha will be providing all the fabulous sketch inspiration this month including the awesome sketch we’re using in today’s hop!

The sketch for today is this fun one right here.

The Dogs Volume 1 set is one I’ve been excited about. Mainly because I don’t own very many animal stamps and so it was so different from anything else I own. Plus, Heather did a great job designing the dogs in this set. they’re really cute! And the sentiments are done in true Skipping stones Design fashion. They’re cute and punny!

Here’s my card using Dogs Volume 1 and the sketch from Latisha.

I decided to go with a more formal design in the patterns and colors for this card that would be perfect to send to a friend mourning the loss of a pet. But since doggies are usually playful (and yes, sometimes messy!) I toned down the seriousness of the card with some messy paint and stitching.

Be sure to hop along and stop at each designer’s blog. i’m sure you will come to love the new Dogs Volume 1 set just as much as I do!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
