Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop and Challenge!!

Good Morning- so glad you stopped by today. The Serendipity Stamps DT are showing off some new goodies in the store and combining it with this month's Serendipity Stamps Challenge-- This month it's all about diecutting!! AND this time around the DT were asked to add an additional challenge... Relax/Enjoy!


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 for you today!! 


First I used Cherry Lynn dies (Serendipity sells these BTW) -adding a Serendipity Bandana die with patterned paper- I use the die twice so the inner circle was in a contrasting color.  Next I die cut the new Boots die and stamped with the coordinating Boots stamp- colored with copics and mounted with foam for a little dimension. Added a tri-color Howdy die that was popped up with dimensionals. You can purchase the Howdy die by itself or as a set with a sweet cowgirl.

Here's a little close up...


For my next card I used the new It's Five O'Clock Somewhere stamp...


I stamped the image on watercolor cardstock and heat embossed with white. Next I pulled out my Clean Color Brush Markers and did some loose watercoloring. Such a fun card- perfect for starting out the summer months.

Here's a little close up...



ETA: I finished off the inside with one of my fav sentiments and totally forgot to attach--


Added some color on watercolor cardstock but, just in the opposite corners- the sentiment was colored ombre.
