Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog and Hop- Anything Goes!!

Good, Good Morning welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog Hop!! 

Love seeing what you make with your Serendipity Stamps and Dies. The challenge begins on the first of the month with a central theme. The design team provides samples for inspiration at the beginning, and then again at the half way point of the challenge, but you get a whole month to join us! At the half way point we'll be showing another round of samples 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 Carol's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below.  


Now we're at the halfway point!!



The rules are simple... play along using at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your submission and link it below. You don't have to have a blog to play along - you can link your designs to any on line gallery. 



This month it is all about Anything Goes- dontcha' just love those :-)  


I made a couple cards for today.... first up is a little Halloween fun!!


This sweet image Mr. Bones was stamped onto PTI select white cardstock and colored with copics- what about that splotchy shirt :-) Diecut that panel and another one with spellbinders wonky rectangles and layered them up. Added a Boo sentiment with the Serendipity's Boo diecut.

Have a Wicked Day is the sentiment on the inside along with a few "splotches" from Serednipity's Ink Splash stamp. 


Next up is a fun winter card using Serendipity's Snowflake Reverse die. I used the snowflakes (rather than the reverse part of the die). First I heat embossed a random background with Stampendous Shabby Blue embossing enamel. Then I sponged ink on several of the white snowflakes and also die cut some blue snowflakes. These were added randomly to my panel. The Wish sentiment was diecut several times and layered for dimension. Added some sequins to finish it off. 


Here's a little close up... you can see the sweet detail on these snowflakes!!



That's if for me today....


The 50% off stamp of the month is the Pumpkin Border...
