Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop!!

Good Morning and welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop!! We are featuring some new dies and stamps available now at Serendipity Stamps! Whoo Hoo!

You should have arrived here from Miriam's blog, (gorgeous, right!) if you got lost along the way, just pop along to the Serendipity Stamp's blog and start from the beginning.

We have a special guest joining us - our teamie Anya.  She designed the retro graphic stamps and I cant wait to see the backgrounds she will create with them.

I have to say I got a little carried away playing with them myself.... and there are sooo many possibilities!!


For this card I used two of the images and stamped a random monochromatic background. The Happy die was inlaid and I added a little twine for fun.


Here's another card using the retro graphic images. For this one, the solid circle was stamped with pool party and then the starburst image was stamped with versamark and embossed with silver. Added a layered Hello die, some silver sequins and silver string.



For my last card, I created a bokeh sky, added hills using Pretty Pink Posh border dies (Mary is carrying PPP dies in the shop now too!!), stamped this sweet elephant on Xpress It Blending cardstock and colored with copics. The sentiment is from Serendipity and it was stamped on a Cherry Lynn circle die (from Serendipity Stamps) and colored with copics. The sweet elephant and sentiment were popped up with foam dots for dimension.

That's it for me today.... oh, how I wanted to play some more... there are so many wonderful images in this release... but, I was blessed with the flu bug and my energy waned :)

Here's the deets.... there's a prize...One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. The more blogs you visit, and leave a comment, the greater chance to win. You have until  March 15th to leave comments, winner will be posted on Serendipity's Stamps blog on March 16th.

Next stop on the hop is my sweet friend Jeanne, sure to be something bright and beautiful...

Here's the full hop list.
