Thank you so much for stopping by today! It's a big, big day because Skipping Stones Designs is celebrating the release of our newest set, Grapeful and we are partnering with The Twinery to do it up big!
If you are hopping along today, you should have arrived from Amy's Crockett's blog. If not, please visit The Twinery or Skipping Stones Design to pick up the hop order from the beginning.
Using Grapeful, I created a card using our sketch artist, Heidi Van Laar's, fantastic sketch as a starting point.
I started by stamping the very funny sentiments on a circle patterned paper. I stamped the martini glass and citrus wedges, fussy cut them and added some Stickles to mimic the look of a sugared or salted rim. I adhered the citrus to the top of the card to create a scalloped edge.
The Twinery sent us an awesome sampler of twine to play with, and I added a band of twine and I created a frame with the twine, by running some glue around the circle and adhering two strands of twine. A few blue pearls finished off the card. All the patterned papers are from Heidi Swapp's Sugar Chic collection.
