Darling Damask


Skipping Stones Designs is celebrating their newest release, Darling Damask with a blog hop to go along with the debut of this week's inspiration challenge.


This set is timeless. The patterns are so beautiful. They are designed to create a seamless pattern when covering a large area, or, they can be used just by stamping once too! The sentiments are classic as well, with a beautiful font that coordinates. I went with a modern design for the timeless patterns, by stamping them first in grey and yellow and cutting them into banners and placing on a solid, clean white background. A sentiment included in the set was also stamped onto a white banner, and then a few rhinestones were placed to set the tone for a more fresh design. I'm going to enter this into Moxie Fab World's Stamp It! Cards Week: The Birthday Card Challenge too!

I also wanted to mention that Skipping Stones Design is having an open design team call too! Please read about the details here, and consider trying out. These stamps are fabulous, the team is fabulous, everything is fabulous about Skipping Stones Design!

I'm the first on the hop, next is Stephanie Mino! There is a complete listing over at the Skipping Stones Design blog, as well as all the challenge rules, details and prizes!
