Serendipity Stamps and The Twinery Blog Hop

Hey- Happy Tuesday! Welcome to the second day of the Serendipity Stamps and The Twinery Blog Hop!!
You should have arrived here from Rebecca's blog.... if you just happened by, start at the beginning via Serendipity Stamps blog or The Twinery blog (links below).

 Both companies Design Teams are providing you with some inspiration using Serendipity Stamps images and/or dies and The Twinery Twine! Just check out the company blogs each day! 
 
I have a couple cards to share with you today!!
 

For my first card I "weaved" a little basket with the Lilac solid twine and added some Serendipity Wildflowers! The flowers were stamped twice on XPress It Blending cardstock- the "full" image was colored with copics and fussy cut. For the second image, I selectively colored a few of the flowers with copics, fussy cut, and popped on top for a little dimension.

The inside... super sweet sentiment from Serendipity stamps..... There Are Only Two Ways

For my second card I had fun making "twine" balloons! The balloons were created using Honeydew and Strawberry striped twine. Added the "Happy" die cut and white embossed the Birthday sentiment from Serendipity Stamps. Loving Serendipity's word dies (actually I need to branch out, I seem to be hooked on this Happy, LOL!)


 A little MFT shimmer mist and enamel dots to finish!
 
AND... of course there are prizes!!
