Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop!

After taking a break last month during Blogs 4 Boobies, the team is back showcasing all new sets and we have two new DT members!

Make sure to visit the Skipping Stones Design Blog to see the new sets and which team members are highlighting the all new stamp sets.

For the hop, I’m working with Imagine, a beautifully detailed and doodled stamp set.


I used the two bird images to create a background and colored the birds in with Zig watercolor markers. I started by stamping the birds in Versamark into watercolor cardstock, heat embossed with black embossing powder, and then colored each bird in.

Imagine Close Up

To create some consistency I colored the bodies a light blue to let the detailed doodles shine through with the bold coloring.

After the main image panel was dry I mounted it to a Blackberry Bliss card base. The three sentiments are also from Imagine, and I lined them up in my MISTI and heat embossed them in gold on vellum. The sentiment panel was centered on the card, and a few mini dot accents were added to the card front.

Are you ready to check out what the other DT members created?! There is plenty more inspiration, so stop by the blog and hop away!
