Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop

It's time for 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.  


So, for my first card I used Serendipity's Summer Flower Pops background. It as stamped on to PTI Select white cardstock and heat embossed with clear. Then, I colored a bunch of the blooms with copics in bright colors. This panel was layered onto a white background. Added the Serendipity Be Kind sentiment onto ovals die cut with Cherry Lynn Oval Classic dies.



This next card... which is also my Color Throwdown card this week uses Serendipity's Summer Flower Pop cling set, Summer Flower Pops Solid set, and Summer Flower Pops dies. I die cut several of the flowers, stamped with the coordinating images, and colored with copics. Added a bit of "black splash" and then used the negative of the Serendipity Summer die,  from the Seasons die set, in the corner. 

Looking for some awesome inspiration?

Color Throwdown #447

Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by Lori!!



What a fun inspiration pic... perfect for dreaming of the beach!!



And... yes that is what I was doing.... dreaming of the beach!! For this card I used several MFT sets and dies. The background was die cut with a inside/out stitched rectangle die-namic. Then I stamped some images from Exquisite Ocean and die-cut a few of them. The little seashell is from Ocean Pals and die-cut using the matching die. All images were stamped except the shell was colored with copics. Sentiment is from Polynesian Paradise. 

Some inspiration...
