Serendipity Stamps and Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Hop!!

Happy Monday. Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps and Perfect Paper Crafting blog hop. The Design Team members from both of these companies have teamed up for a Blog Hop!!

Perfect Paper Crafting has some fantastic tools for scrapbookers and cardmakers..... I've used a couple tools today... along with some sweet Serendipity Stamps.

I stamped Serendipity's Zinnia with Memento Tuxedo Black onto XPress It blending cardstock, colored with copics and added a little glitter.. black for the center of the red zinnia and clear for the yellow and purple zininias. I used Perfect Paper Crafting mini borders to add a 1/4 " and 1/8" border to frame the image. 

This card uses Serendipity Stamps Heart Bouquet {watercolored this image and added a wink of Stella} framed the image with the mini borders at 1/4" and 5/8" along with Perfect Squares to make the card base to fold and cut it perfectly. The border was created using the Mini borders at 1/4 " and 5/8".

You can access videos here on how to use all of the tools from Perfect Paper Crafting and to see the whole catalog of Serendipity Images go here.

Beautifully colored flowers and butterfly. The red really pops especially the flower but really pops the butterfly body and wing tips. Great addition with the bow, button and twine.
I love this Heart bouquet. So cute. And I like all the little banners and the layering. Perfectly framed. Thanks for sharing with very nicely done!

Your cards are adorable! I love the butterfly popping out. The red just pops on this card as well. I love the layers that you used on your Stamps Heart Bouquet card.

Oh Vickie! Those Zennias are a feast for the eyes! Gorgeous colors and that ..swooon... black satiny bow! I love this. Your second with all the layered matts looks so neat and clean. Im loving the little fishtail ends peeking out with the button toppers!
