Merry & Bright - Stamp & Share Challenge - Skipping Stones Designs

Hello everyone,

Welcome, we could not be more excited to share our first challenge with you! 

The challenge will be the last Friday of every month and will run for a week. We will be challenging you to sketches, colors, inspiration, and themes; whatever strikes our fancy! One random person will win a Skipping Stones Design stamp set of their choice and each of the design team gals will be sharing their favorite card for the week. 

Skipping Stones Design Stamps are not required, but highly encouraged...we want to be inspired by you too! Challenge will end on Friday, September 4 at 5:00PM EST. If you are on social media sites use #skippingstonesdesign and #stampandshare and if you upload to Splitcoaststampers use the keywords ssd and skippingstonesdesign

This weeks challenge is Christmas, let's start on those Christmas cards, shall we?

I am using the mini Merry and Bright set as well the as the snowflake from the Christmas Labels sets for my card.   

I used a curved die to cut the bottom of the card and popped up a piece of slate card stock under that to give it dimension 

I used a slate ink for the snowflakes on the white card stock and a white pigment ink on the slate card stock.   I stamped the sentiment from the Merry & Bright set in slate ink as well.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
