Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop- July #1

First, Happy Happy July 4th to all the US stampers out there. I will be hanging at the pool tomorrow with my youngest daughter, youngest granddaughter, and hubs!! Hope you enjoy your day and any celebrations you have planned!!

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 Marybeth Lopez blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below. I have a clean and simple card for you today.



So, this image is all in one.... It's Five O'Clock Fun image for summer (well, depending all year 'round) I stamped the image with Versamark black ink and colored with copics. When creating a CAS card you can add little elements to give it a little sumthin' sumthin'

For this card I added a wonky frame, popped it up on the base with foam, and added crystal effects (glassy effect to the glasses- you can's see it the pic but, IRL it looks good). Other ideas may be to add some twine, glitter on the rims of a couple of the glasses, sequins, liquid applique for foam on the beer mug etc. etc. 


For the inside I added this Rest, Relax sentiment- perfect for a little summertime libation :-)


 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 the wonky frame. Amazing how stunning simple cards can look.

Going to take your inside sentiment to heart today!! :) Also love all the ideas you mentioned for snazzing up a card. I don't do CAS often enough. I love the look of other people's CAS cards, but I never seem to be happy with mine. :)

So fun! I'm pretty sure the path around your frame is how I've walked after some "Five O'Clocks"!
