Team Edward or Team Jacob?!

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design’s Blog DT Blog Hop to celebrate the release of two new stamp sets, Fangs or Fur and Chocolate Vol. 2. This is our "sweetest" release yet, whether you're a Twilight fan or a chocolate lover, we have something for you!! If you just happened upon my blog today, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design.

You should have arrived from Peggy's blog. Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means the Design Team is showcasing another great creation from Teri Anderson. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch. Just remember to use the keywords SSD031 if you are uploading to any online galleries, or link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. We'll be looking soon for Guest Designers so you never know....


Here is our 5th sketch from Teri! We'll miss Teri and her sketches, but we've had a great time!

I'll admit, I'm not a "Twihard" but I've enjoyed the books and have liked the movies, so it was really fun to play with this set!

In this first card I used the gorgeous Edward/Bella heart image (covered in glitter!) and stapled some ribbons on (similiar to the Eclipse cover). I moved my sentiment (down from the sketch) and actually stamped onto the ribbon with StazOn ink.

I didn't want to leave the "Team Jacob" fans hanging, so I made a second card! For the small circle, I used glossy cardstock and brayered the two colors before I stamped the howling wolf.




So are any of you planning on catching the midnight release of Eclipse? Leave me a comment either with your "Team" preference, your movie watching plans, your favorite SSD stamp set, or anything else you'd like to comment about! ;) I have a Chic Martini stamp set up for grabs! Commenting will run through July 30th at midnight, and I'll post a winner on Thursday July 1st!

Also, today I have an article up at Craft Critique spotlighting some products by Just Imagine Crafts, (you can also see two cards using SSD sets!) and there is a giveaway for 3 lucky readers! So be sure to check that out!

Have fun hopping! Your next stop on the hop is to Jodi!

Fabulous card creations! And yes, while I'm not a crazed Twihard fan, there are six of us that have attended the FIRST night opening of each of the movies so far and we have plans to go and find our place tomorrow night to watch Eclipse! My friends are really going to get a chuckly out of your Edward and Bella card! Thanks for sharing!

Ooooh, nice! Love the BG paper on the Edward/Bella card, and nice job adding the wolf and the Lovely as a Tree set to the Jacob card. I must say I am Team Edward, even when Jacob takes off his shirt!

CraftyRia said...

I am not a Twilight fan, so I can't say which team I'm on. Your cards are really cute, though.

I love the Bra stamp set. I just saw it and it cracked me up. I think I need that one!

Camishel said...

Go Team Edward..till Jacob takes his shirt off! Love both cards

I love the coloring on the wolf on the Team Jacob card (my team, by the way) The red ribbon on the Edward and Bella card is the perfect shade. Love them both.

Sarah said...

I LOVe the way you added the ribbon on the Edward/Bella card! I have a hard time deciding which team I'm on...but I love the sentiment on one of the stamps that says Team Edward...until Jacob takes off his shirt! LOL Great job on both cards!
