The Twinery & Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop


Hi!! Welcome to day two of a fabulous blog hop featuring products from The Twinery & Skipping Stones Design!  


and



You should have come from  Karen Baker's blog!  If you haven't been following the blog hop, you can start at the beginning by visiting The Twinery's blog for a full list of blog participants for both days!  

 I created a Father's Day gift to share with you today.  The Skipping Stones Design stamp set that I used is called Grunge 2 and it is a great set for masculine projects (although it has great uses for feminine projects as well).  I used two colors of twine, Caribbean (my personal favorite) and Mandarin.


Here is the clothespin from the set.  It is one of those giant clothespins that I've had sitting around forever.  You know what I mean, because you probably have one too waiting to have something done to it. :) I used black embossing powder to emboss the film strip on a white piece of cardstock.  The stamp in the set is only 3 frames long but it was super easy to line up the stamp to create a longer strip.  


Now you know how much I LOVE my twine but sometimes to make a project "complete" it only takes a little bit.  That is how it is for this project.  The twine I used pulled everything together, even though it is just a little amount, and without it the project would have looked undone.


This is the matching card.  I created it basically the same way as the clothespin.  Aren't the chevron zig zags cute?  I love how easily they lined up to make the 2 different colors!  I also stamped the chevron pattern on the hearts and used the same two twine colors from before to tie everything together.  

So...I know you are interested in a winning a prize, right?  Well, like you've come to expect with The Twinery, there are prizes up for grabs!  The Twinery is giving away a Colorful Bunch sampler pack!  To be eligible to win, leave a comment on each blog on the hop!  The deadline for leaving comments is 11:59 pm EDT, Friday May 25th.  The winner will be announced on The Twinery Blog Sunday, May 27th.  Skipping Stones Design is giving away two stamps sets as well!  You can find all the detail on their blog.



Your next stop on the hop is to  Stephanie Mino's blog! I am sure she has something fantastic to share with you!  

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great one!
