Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop and Challenge!!

Good Morning, we're at the halfway point of this month's Serendipity Stamps Challenge-- Circles/Dots and we're having a Blog Hop!! It's a new year and we're switching things up a little - the newest challenge will begin on the first of every month. At the half way point we'll be showing another round of samples by the design team as well as celebrating with a monthly blog hop - showing you the latest products and offering another chance for you to win some goodies from Serendipity Stamps.

You should have arrived here from Miriam's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below.  




So for my first card I used the new Butterfly Dream stamp set. I die cut circles out of a 4" x 5 1/4" panel using Cheery Lynn dies using PTI's Stampers Select white cardstock. I colored the images with copics and then inlaid them back into the panel. The panel was adhered to a black background for a little "pop". For the sentiment-the new Make a Wish set-  I die cut several more circles and layered them- with the several layers it makes the sentiment stand out a little bit more. Love these sweet butterflies... had so much fun making this card :)



For my next card I went with the Nest In Tree image and Hello die cut. I wanted the image to stand out so I used minimal color with a lot of neutrals. The background was watercolored a little with a soft shade of blue. Image stamped onto a Cheery Lynn oval die combo, colored with copics and adhered. The Hello die was die cut several times and layered for some dimension- the top layered sponged in an ombre fashion using neutral colors.  

Want to go shopping? The 50% off stamp of the month is the "To The World".
