Skipping Stones Designs Blog Hop Day 1

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Grand Reopening/New Release Blog Hop.  Skipping Stones 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!  Congrats Heather so now she back with a new design team, stamps and more... yes, I am very excited to announce that I am part of the new Design Team!! Woo-hoo!!

So today and tomorrow we are having blog hops showcasing new and not too new sets! The project I have for you today is using the set "Funny Coffee vol #1".

Here are the details:

  • Make card base from Kraft cardstock.
  • Stamp coffee cups on a piece of watercolor paper in Black StazOn ink.
  • Color images with watercolor markers, here I used Spectrum Aqua Markers.
  • Cut a panel from vellum cardstock, stamp sentiment and coffee rings, add it to watercolor image, then add stitches.
  • Add stitched panel to card base.
Super easy and simple card, and flat!! Easy to mail, perfect to include gift card or coffee money {wink, wink}

So, I hope you like my project! I invite to hop along and enjoy the DT projects! Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the SSD store!!
