Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop!!


Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop! We're changing it up this year- there will be two hops each month as usual and there will be opportunities to win $ to purchase Serendipity Stamps. The design team will be showing you the latest products and offering a 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.  

Sooo... today is all about birthdays...I had a lot of fun playing with some oldies but goodies.




Here's my card...





Isn't that fun!! For my card I die cut the Cupcake die several times. Then I sponged the cupcakes with two complimentary pink colors and adhered randomly onto a white panel. To get the middle cupcake I cut the die in coral and then turned it over, traced around the outside of the die, and fussy cut to get the solid background. Added a layered Celebrate die (for several layers I die cut with white, adhere, then die cut with the gold and adhere on top. This way I don't waste all that gold paper!). Added a seam binding bow, gold bow, and pearl for a little bling!!

Looking for some awesome inspiration?
