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 Julie's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below.  

I have a couple of cards for you today...

Both use the new Happy Background die


For my first card I die cut the background leaving all the pieces in place. Then I sponged color haphazardly in the colors of the rainbow. The rainbow colors are so bright it is hard to see the detail in the pic- but, in real life it's fun (see below for the detail). I removed one "Happy" sentiment (which happens to be exactly the shape of Serendipity's Happy die )- to add dimension I die cut the singular Happy die several times- added some adhesive and layered and then, adhered over the appropriate spot on the cover up die. Added the Birthday Sentiment (white embossed on black) and a little twine to finish it off. 


For this card, I die cut the Happy Background die, popped out some the Happy pieces, trimmed to 4 x 4, and backed with a yellow striped patterned paper. Easy, quick, and fun!! This panel was adhered with foam for a little dimension and twine to finish off. 


Looking for some awesome inspiration?   


AND... there are always prizes. One random comment along the hop will receive a $20 gift code to the Serendipity Stamps store. You have from today until Sunday to leave your comments. Mary will announce the winner on the Serendipity Stamps blog on Monday!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

I am "smitten" by your lovely cards, especially the first one. I rather like all the pop outs left in place with the gorgeous rainbow background to highlight it. The black border really makes it stand out even more.

Very pretty.

Pat said...

I love both these cards Marybeth and the first is so bright and pretty with the background die cut and just one sentiment removed in favour of the white one which makes it stand out beautifully, and the second done the conventional way with that pretty yellow striped paper in the background, and matching baker's twine too. x

Love the rainbow background, especially with the die cuts left in place. The white die word Happy really pops out against that awesome background.

Eileen said...
