Skipping Stones and Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop

Good morning and Happy 4th of July for my friends in the USA!  Today is an awesome day at Skipping Stones Design because we are teaming up with the talented crew from the Ribbon Carousel for a blog hop full of all kinds of stampy and ribbony goodness!

The Ribbon Carousel was so kind to give each of us on the Skipping Stones team selected ribbon from their June 2012 ribbon kit and using this week's photo from Skipping Stones July Inspiration challenge, here is what I came up with:


On a panel of cream cardstock, I die cut 3 stars.  I selectively inked one of the sentiments from Christmas Song and Celebrate the Season, just became Celebrate.  I added some patterned paper from Canvas Corp to the bottom and pleated the luscious navy ribbon from our kit and adhered it to the card.  A large button tied with twine finished off the ribbon treatment. 


I stamped the woodgrain patterned from Grunge 1 on cream cardstock using a pale linen ink.  I attached the two layers together using foam adhesive and adhered the completed card front to a card base made of kraft cardstock. 

What's an awesome blog hop without prizes??? Hop along and leave some blog love for our designers for a chance to win one of 2 great prizes!  The Ribbon Carousel will be giving away a ribbon carousel and Skipping Stones Design will be giving away a stamp set of the winner's choice!   Winners will be announced on the Ribbon Carousel blog on Saturday at 8:00 PM EST!  


Wouldn't this make an awesome addition to your crafty space? 

Ready to hop?!  
Lets do it! 




Don't forget that Skipping Stones is also hosting our weekly challenge and this time- it's an inspiration photo- hop over to the Skipping Stones blog for all the details and to link up your take on the sketch.
