Yes, Serendipity Stamps is having a blog hop... WHY...NEW DIES! We are showcasing word dies being released today... all of the new dies make me smile! Mary is releasing 9 new word dies AND there is a Fabulous Floral Frame- with some other goodies "tucked in"!! Make sure to visit all of the DT blogs listed below so you can see all the new dies. There were so many... so the DT are providing samples using all of them. I've had so much fun playing... haven't even scratched the surface... OH, the possibilities!!
I have a few samples....
Aren't those Lilacs gorgeous... I grew up in the Midwest and May is the time for lilacs to bloom... it is not a natural flower in the South Eastern US... bought a hybrid and trying to "baby it along" and DREAMING of Lilacs next year... gorgeous flowers and fabulous scent! And, yes, these Serendipity flowers/images have "cured" me of my purple phobia :)
This card uses an image that I fell in love with after my teamies posted some cards with it. Guess that plane should be shooting upward... instead of down... OOPS! BUT, could you IMAGINE being able to fly your own small plane... what an accomplishment! Imagine... I die cut the sentiment three times using different cardstock/patterned paper to make it stand out a little.
My last card uses the new Fabulous Frame...
How gorgeous is this frame!! The frame was die cut with some MME paper and mounted on SU Blushing Bride. The large butterfly die is Serendipity's Solid Butterfly die ... die cut with watercolor paper. added ink to an acrylic block, placed the new die cut butterfly from the Floral Frame and Embellishment dies on top... rubbed with my fingers to pick up color and it wasn't even so I sponged on a lighter pink, and added gold spritz!!
A close up of the frame die... used my metal "poker" and fingers to "pull up" some of the flower images for dimension.
