Sketch Tuesday at Skipping Stones

Today we have another great sketch (SSD 009) from Amy at Pickled Paper Designs. This was another sketch that made me scratch my head and pull the card apart a few times to get it the way I liked it. Thanks Amy for making me think real hard on this one. :)

Of course you know you can't leave the sketch like it is so I flipped it again. I used the Martha loopy boarder punch for the funness at the bottom and the Martha loopy corner punch to make the circle loopy as well. I love using the punch to make circles. I may have to do a tutorial on how to do this for those of you who would like to know.
I got some new embossing powder from Stampin' Up this week. Like you all didn't know, I love sparkle! So I had to use it to sparkle up my little roll a bit. First I used glossy accents on the frosting to puff it up. When that dried I wiped the raised part with Top Boss and sprinkled the new sparkly Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heated. I cut the frosting out and pop doted it onto another stamped image of the roll. And as usual, I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress inks.

And a close up of the frosting. I finished the card with some matching ribbon and a Maya Road pin.  The paper is some scraps of the Bo-Bunny Boo Crew and some Bazzil Bling I had left over from my cupcake cuties card from last week.

And to go along with my sparkle addiction I have this quote that I love. I think this is probably the reason I like all things that sparkle.

Very cute! I just love that trim you used -- it is just perfect -- it SO looks like icing! Great take on the sketch!!!


This is so cute! The icing is gorgeous, great tip! I can't wait to try it out!


Wow, the frosting looks sooo real! I love that you used the MS punch around the circle - not sure if I could have gotten that right! :) Awesome card! hugz, Mary


LOVE this! That roll is just ready to eat ;0)

Can you re-post on my blog candy? I accidentally hit the wrong button in my tired stupor this morning and deleted your comment :0(
