Blog Hoppin with Skipping Stones and a Giveaway!

Welcome to a new Skipping Stones Design's Blog Hop. Today we get to celebrate the release of two new stamp sets, Holy Carp and Home of the Brave. If you just happened upon my blog today, you will want to go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design.
You should have arrived from Deb Felts blog.

Today is also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means the Design Team is showcasing another great creation from Jen del Muro. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch. Just remember to use the keywords SSD025 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 Jen's awesome sketch

I was so excited to use the Home of the Brave set for todays card. I stamped the fireworks with red ink and then heat embossed. I then sponged a night sky and added stickles for my stars. I used a couple of beautiful papers from the Paper Temptress. Jupiter Mica/metallic, White diamond and sky blue crepe.

GIVEAWAY!
Leave me a comment about the new stamps and I will draw a winner on Monday the 24th for this adorable stamp set!

Your card is great! I love the way you used the stamps. The set of stamps you posted is adorable, too! I can see them used on a variety of winter and Christmas cards. I especially love the penguin and the Happy Brrthday saying. Hahahaha.
