The Stamp Review Crew: Stacked Stone

Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop: Inspiring you one stamp set at a time

Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop!  We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday of the month.  This week we are playing with the fun new background stamp, Stacked Stone. If you are following the hop in order, you have just arrived from the blog of the very talented Mary Haugen.

For this week's Paper Craft Crew, I combined Hippo Happiness with Stacked Stone for a graduation card.

I incorporated the school colors, as well as adding the stone background and some laurel embellishment for an Ivy League look.

Speaking of ivy, I applied the sketch from Global Design Project #246 to create some climbing ivy on a stone wall.

I love the subtle water drop look of the Flowers for Every Season gems.
