Skipping Stones Design and the Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop...


The Skipping Stones Design Team is thrilled to be teaming up with the fabulous designers from The Ribbon Carousel to bring you a blog hop that is sure to impress! 


Supplies Used
stamps: Pumpkin Seed Sentiments (Skipping Stones Design)
ribbon: The Ribbon Carousel
glitter: Stampendous
rubons: Fourth of July Scrapments (Royal and Langnickel)

I cut the star using the Cricut and scored straight down each point. When you fold on the score marks you create a 3D star. A little bit of adhesive and glitter and you have a fun embellishment!


This month Skipping Stones Design is mixing things up a bit. Instead of sketches, we'll be working with inspiration photos. This week's photo is perfect for 4th of July cards and projects!


Lets talk prizes! Hop along and leave some blog love for our designers for a chance to win one of 2 great prizes! The Ribbon Carousel will be giving away a ribbon carousel and Skipping Stones Design will be giving away a stamp set of the winner's choice! 


 Winners will be announced on Saturday at 8:00 PM EST! Ready to hop?! Lets do it!
