It's a Hop- New Serendipity stamps!!

Hopefully you came from sweet Pauline's blog as I'm the next stop on the hop. AND....I've been having fun playing with some new stamps by Serendipity. I have several cards today... so, let's get to it....


For the first card (and my personal fav) I stamped these flower images (Flower Pops-1304M) onto watercolor cardstock and painted. The background uses a couple images from the set along with the Butterfly kisses stamp and Enjoy sentiment.


For this card, I stamped the Flowers & Ferns image (007G) onto XPress It blending cardstock and colored with copics. Added a doily and ribbon/button/twine combo along with a few enamel dots. The inside was stamped with the new Happy Mother's Day Sentiment (1303E).


While still playing with different mediums... I colored with gelatos onto watercolor cardstock and then used a watercolor brush to blend. The Wildflowers image (1306F) was stamped in memento tuxedo black and heat embossed with clear. Added a few gems and this sweet sentiment from Serendipity Stamps.


This card uses the new Happy Mother's Day sentiment (1303E) combined with an image from Flower Pops (1304M) stamped onto patterned paper- added a dot of black Viva D├ęcor paint to the centers and a simple bow. I used a different color combo than I normally go for...trying to stretch myself a little :)


My last card uses a new background stamped that was released a little bit ago-- Hello Word (1301). The stamp has "hello" in different languages- pretty cool! It was stamped in versamark and heat embossed with white. Diamonds were added with modeling paste tinted with pink using MFT MPD's diamond stencil. Cut the panel on a diagonal and adhered- stamped Serendipity's Hello onto a chalkboard piece attached with a clothespin.

I know I made a few cards...now the deets!

You made so many pretty cards and didn't hold anything back. I'm defiantly going to case the first one - I love the background stamping and the layers of colorful fussy cut flowers. The gelato card is my second favorite. No fussy coloring but plenty colorful. You outdid yourself here. Wonderful!

these cards are all lovely. My favorites are the first - love that collage look, and the 3rd with the stamping on the pattern paper. Love that look too.
