The Twinery and Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop



Hello and welcome back to another fun day of blog hopping with The Twinery and Skipping Stones Design.  If you have come from Lindsay Amrhein's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon this post and would like to participate, hop on over to The Twinery Blog to get the details and get started.  So, have you been inspired with the awesome projects so far??


It was so fun to combine product from these two companies to make this card.  I used the Grunge stamp set from Skipping Stones Design and Honeydew bakers twine from The Twinery.  The cardstock is stamped with the awesome Grunge stamps and I used some of the Honeydew twine to stitch along the border of the two stamped papers.  The sentiment is from SRM Stickers and I tied it to the card with some more of the yummy Honeydew bakers twine.
The nuts are cut from the Robot party cartridge and my Cricut onto some metallic cardstock from DCWV.

Here is what you can win for hopping along with us today and tomorrow:


Grapeful plus a surprise set


The deadline for leaving comments is 11:59pm EDT, Friday May 25th. Be sure to check out the blog hop post over on The Twinery Blog for all the details.  Winner will be announced on The Twinery Blog Sunday, May 27th.

Now, hop on over to Katie Gehring's blog to see what she has created with this awesome combination.

Hugs,
Amy

  4. OK, this might be my favorite card. I love how different it is and how much depth and texture it is. So very cool. Masculine cards don't come naturally to me, but you knocked it out of the park!
