SSD # 64 SKETCH CHALLENGE AND BLOG HOP

THIS IS A SPECIAL TUESDAY OVER AT Skipping Stones Design  BLOG!!  Today is a combination post...the usual Tuesday Sketch Challenge AND...the release of a brand new SSD set called "Pumpkin Seed Sentiments", celebrated by an AWESOME blog hop with tons of cool design ideas!
I will back track and start with the fabulous sketch from our very talented Guest designer all this month...Lea Lawson!  Her inspiring work is everywhere you look, and I feel tickled to death to have the opportunity to design to a sketch she gave us!  Here it is!
To add to the fun of an amazing sketch, we have a fun new release from Skipping StonesDesign called "Pumpkin Seed Sentiments" to design with....this is a super versatile set of background stamps and simple sentiments that are a must for your stamping collection that I know you will use over and over.  This is the set..
Like I said.....lotsa fun to play with right?  So,... I showed you the sketch,  we looked at the amazing new SSD set and now lets get on to the fun of the BLOG HOP!!  You should have arrived here from Angela Thomas, one of our fabby guest Designers this month.....Awesome creation she posted !!!  Since we have so many fun things to see today, I will cut to the chase...my take on the Sketch using "Pumpkin Seed Sentiments"...since today IS Valentines Day...

You all know by now my love of kraft  CS.....sorry to use it again...BUT..it works sooo well with this set and white ink.....don't ya think?  OK...so I used PTI kraft, the stamp stamped with white ink and embossed with white EP.  I cut around the shape and layered it onto PTI Razzelberry Fizz CS...embellished with Razzelberry Fizz ribbon and buttons, and PTI New Leaf ribbon.  Pearls from my ecclectic basket of goodies my Mother gave me..Swiss dot CB background layer...and a pretty little flower I bought a long time ago that needed the right moment to shine....I enhanced her with a Razzelberry Fizz buton and pearl, added a quick sentiment and there she is!!  My take on the sketch using our fabby new release....BUT...WAIT...I have one more little pic to share using Pumpkin Seed Sentiments before we move on to our next person on the hop...I created a few mini  3X3 cards I wanted to quickly share....
Simple...YES....Quick YES...Great Gift Set..YES!!....Just one more idea....NOW PLEASE hop on to the next person on the hop...one of us "Stamp Tramps"  Wendy Jordan.   At the end of the hop please please play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Design Blog .  A free stamp set is up for grabs to a lucky winner that uploads their creation to the sketch challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today and joining our hop.  Hope you have a wonderful week!!   TAMMIE
