I care...Guest Designing~SSD72 69

Mona Pendleton | Monday, April 11, 2011 @ 9:41 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Uplifting! If you've just happened upon my blog today, make sure to start from the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived here from Gladys Chia's blog.

Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means we're showcasing another great creation from our Guest Sketch Artist this month, Laurie Schmidlin. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. A free stamp set is up for grabs to one lucky winner that joins the sketch challenge!
For my focal point, I stamped one of the lovely sentiments from Uplifting then using a Standard Circles LG die template to cut/emboss the image.

Using a sweet tag cut from Papertrey's Tiny Tags die, I stamped a little butterfly and sentiment from Uplifting then attached to the bow using a teeny safety pin and topped it off with a Prima rose.
 I'm lovin' the beautiful Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection and with all the layers in this week's Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday, the paper worked wonderfully well paired with the images from the Uplifting set.
To continue on with the Hop, please be sure to see what Amy Tsuruta has created! Thanks for looking ~ Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Skipping Stones Design Uplifting
Die Templates:  Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® Standard Circles LG, Papertrey Ink Doily Details Collection, Grand Calibur, Papertrey Ink Embellishments, Tiny Tags
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection

Mona you have created, yet again, a fabulous card. You've really brought the sketch to life. I adore the PTI doily. I think it has such a pretty and unique shape and certainly one of my faves (I used it twice today..great mnds) ;-). The stitched inner circle is very effective. Gorgeous card!
