Serendipity Stamps February Blog Hop- #1

Oh my word.... It's the first of February... I am so busy with life right now!! Having the opportunity to stamp once in a while is my sanity!!! Have you ever felt that way?!?!

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



So I played with Serendipity's Toadstool with Violets - I was in an orange mood so the flowers aren't violets :-) I stamped the image onto a die cut stitched panel and then colored with copics. I don't usually color nature images- it was fun for a first try (maybe need to practice a little). This was mounted onto patterned paper to add a little something, something. Lastly, I added the Hello die (die cut several times and layered offset for a little hint of color).

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!!

Have a great day... hugs, Vickie!!

Love how you pulled out just a few parts of the image to color. We have yellow violets in our woods - so why not orange??? Oh this makes me long for spring!!!!

I love all nature stamps and you did a great job! It reminds me of fall! A beautiful time of year! Using the die with the stamp balanced out this beautiful card! Thanks for sharing!

Your toadstools are colored so realistically, Vickie, and I like those orange "violets" with the stacked hello!
