Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop!!!!

Yeah!! It's time for another Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop!!! Today the DT are featuring some of the recently released Christmas stamps and dies. Can you say Whoo Hoo!!!!!

You should have arrived here from the fantastic Miriam Napier, if not I will have the link list below so you can start at the beginning!!



I made several cards today and I hope you enjoy them!! Just wanted to play with all the new goodies!!

My first card.....
I used the Ornaments Negative Cling Set and the Joy Die. The gold ornament was stamped in versamark and heat embossed with gold. The fabulous Joy die was die cut three times with gold paper and layered for a little dimension.... isn't it fabulous- love the font/curly ques (that's a professional word, right!?)

For my next card I used both the Ornaments Cling set and Ornaments Negative cling set in color but, on the soft/subtle side.... the sentiment is Serendipity's Happy Christmas.     



For this card, I stamped the Ornament Background Cling Set (actual size is 5.75 square) with versamark and heat embossed with white. Next I sponged the panel with two shades of blue. After that I didn't want to cover it up- so, I added the Happy Holidays sentiment on a blue panel, added a panel of silver shiny paper, silver twine, and sequins. Honestly, I tried to get a better picture- this doesn't do it justice- IRL those ornaments stand out with the blue and the silver adds a little sumthin' sumthin'



Here's my last card....

I started by stamping the Poinsettia Background (actual size 5.75") in black, but, I only used a portion of the image for the background. Stamped it again and fussy cut some of the poinsettias to "pop up" for a little dimension. The Serendipity Peace die was cut three times from gold paper and layered. Added some black seam binding and gold curly ribbon.

Great variety! I am using the Happy Christmas stamp on my 40 Christmas cards ( along with several other Serendipity stamps). TFS!

Wow! Love each and every card but really think the poinsettia one is my favorite because of the way you only used a portion of the stamps and then added the dimension! TFS.

The cards are beautiful. I love how the green circles are framed as background. The gold ornament really pops from the other green.
Wonderful card.
The poinsettias are so pretty too.
