Skipping Stones Designs Featured Friday!!

Good morning!!  Thanks for stopping by today!!

This month, Skipping Stones Designs has TWO featured sets of the month, Christmas Swirls and Wise Men.  Both of these sets are on sale for the month of October for $12.49.  STEAL!!

I followed along with this week’s sketch challenge and used Christmas Swirls

SSD-FeaturedFriday

I stamped the focal image with embossing ink and heat embossed with Detail Gold Embossing powder.

I then stamped the sentiment on vellum with embossing ink and heat embossed with Detail Gold Embossing powder.  I place the sentiment strip over the first star.  I repeated the first step and stamped the star on vellum, heat embossed again with Detail Gold embossing powder.  I cut out the star and popped it up with dimensionals.   For interest, I applied white and gold Liquid Pearls around the image and sentiment.

Next week, for our sketch challenge reveal, some of the members of the Design Team will be making some fabulous creations with Christmas Swirls and Wise Men.  Please check it out on Tuesday!!
