Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blop Hop sponsored by Skipping Stones Design. If you didn't come here from Jen's blog, you can click here to start from the beginning at Skipping Stones Design.
Along the way, the Skipping Stones Design Team (aka the Stamp Tramps) will have blog candy for you to enter. As an added bonus, there will also be 4 stamp sets (new stamp sets not yet released) will be hidden along the hop, but we’re not telling you where so be sure to leave some love as you hop!!! Make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! The winners will be announced on Friday January 8th at Skipping Stones Design.
I'm so thrilled to be joining the ladies on the hop but I have a little secret to share... I still haven't gotten into the swing of things from the holidays -- ugh ugh ugh. Monday was such a drag at work, but here's hoping today's better!
I decided to pull out the set Healing Wings for the hop. I love the sentiment "Friends give color to lives" and I thought it'd be fun to emboss the butterflies with a clear embossing powder to give the purple butterfly more color pop.
I used some pearls to emphasize "color" in the sentiment. I also used a larger pearl in the middle of the butterfly body with smaller ones to bookend it. I like the effect and how it gives it more depth. :)
I'm sure you guys are all liking what you've seen so far on this blog hop! Lots of talented ladies!
Just a reminder that Heather is also generously offering 25% off on all stamps sets Tuesday and Wednesday! How awesome is that? The code is 25off.
Ok enough babble from me! Next on the hop is the ever so talented Kandi Phillips. Be sure to visit her blog to see what inspiration she has up her sleeve!
Try playing with different sizes of the same embellishment for some fun effects!
