Good Morning and welcome to this month's Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop. Serendipity released two new dies, two sentiments, and two images this month!!
You should have arrived here from Miriam's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below. I have a couple cards to show you today.
For my first card I used Serendipity's Bandana stamp for the background on this pop up card. It was stamped, cut, and adhered to the inside upper flap. The rooster is from Serendipity's Rooster on Fence (I used only a portion of this image- you'll see the full image as you hop!) The rooster was colored with copics, fussy cut, and adhered to my "tab" so that it would pop up/out from the background. The new sentiment, Cock-a-doodle-do was stamped on the inside base.
Here's another pic.... hard to get a good pic for this kind of card.
Here's a little close up of the Hot Air Balloons Reverse die...
Here's the full card...
Isn't that fun!! A little tip... something I learned when piecing dies with small inlaid pieces like this one. In the past, I glued all of the inlaid pieces- it takes forever and sometimes it's hard to keep the glue off the piece that shows. So, I finally "got smart"- you may already know this and I am just slow :)
I started with two white panels the same size (one will be the panel you die cut and the other will be a base underneath- doesn't show so you could use a scrap). Next I cut a panel with double- sided adhesive, pulled off one layer and adhered this to one of the white panels. Next, I removed the top layer of adhesive, die cut the Hot Air Balloons with the other white panel and layered this on top of the adhesive. You end up with the negative spaces of your Hot Air Balloons with adhesive- easy and clean to add the patterned paper pieces.
The sentiment is Serendipity's Let Your Dreams. It was stamped on Cherry Lynn ovals and stitched ovals and popped on top with foam dots.
