SSD + The Twinery Blog Hop!

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the first day of the fabulous blog hop with Skipping Stones Design and The Twinery!  If you came from Teri, than you are in the right spot.  If not, why don't you join in the fun and start at The Twinery's blog.  You can win some twine and some stamps today by leaving comments along the way!  So, why not join in the fun!  :)    The deadline for leaving comments is 11:59pm EDT, Friday May 25th.  Winner will be announced on The Twinery Blog
Sunday, May 27th.

So today I am sharing a fun card that I made using the new Grapeful stamp set from Skipping Stones Design.  


I also used a bit of the Pumpkin Seed Sentiments stamp set.  The papers and stickers are from the  What's Up? collection from BasicGrey.   And of course, the twine is from The Twinery.

I attempted to create a grapefruit for my background, complete with sugar (aka glitter).  Not entirely sure how well that turned out.

And then I made sure to stamp my fruit image in a pinkish/salmon color to look like a grapefruit piece, rather than a lemon or lime (which many people are using the image for).


It was one of those cards where I just kept trying new things and ended up with a bunch of layers.  What do you think?

The card is based on sketch #129 at Skipping Stones Design.  To play along, just upload your card here.  You do not even have to use SSD stamps.  :)  I do hope you play along with us.

And don't miss out on the awesome PMS sale going on now...all details can be found here.

Well thanks so much for stopping by today!  Your next stop on the blog hop is Dorangela.

Have a fantastic day!!!

Wow! This card is fabulous! All your layers look so good together (not at all like mine when I try to keep adding stuff!) and though maybe it doesn't look like a gratefuit, that twine creation is really cool. Love the circle element it creates.
