Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog- Monograms and Verse!!

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog! We love seeing what you make with your Serendipity Stamps and Dies. Once a month (on the first Wednesday) we post a new challenge with a central theme. The design team provides samples for inspiration at the beginning, and then again at the half way point of the challenge (on the third Wednesday), but you get the whole month to join us!

Monograms and Verse – Create a monogram card or a card that features a verse. If you choose to do a monogram feel free to be creative! Snip a letter off a die. Use a single letter from a verse stamp. Mix letters from different alphabets.  Need a little more inspiration?  Just make sure you include at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your design.

Want to go shopping?  We're trying something new - a  "stamp of the month".  This time it's the Jar Label.  You can purchase the stamp of the month all through April for 50% off.  You can see it here.

Here's my card... I die cut the Valentines and snipped off the V for my card!! Fun, Huh!!

Now when I think of monogramed cards... I think clean and simple. I did clean and simple but added a few layers and stitching for a little interest along with this fabulous paper (Amy Tangerine Stitched)- isn't that floral pattern gorgeous!!

Here's a little close up of my "monogram"

Our special guest this month is Karen Dunbrook of Snippets blog. I hope you will stop by her blog - I think you're going to love what you see! 

For more inspiration there are samples from the design team on the challenge blog or you can visit them directly and get all the details by clicking on their names below.

The rules are simple... play along using at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your submission and link it below. You don't have to have a blog to play along - you can link your designs to any on line gallery. In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not display a Serendipity Stamps image.
