Serendipity Stamps and NBUS Challenge!!

Good Morning!! Hope you had a great Labor Day WE- we went camping and had a blast!!
This morning was the start of Darnell's new NBUS challenge... "Never Before Used Schtuff" Great way to get out those stamps that have never seen ink- it happens to all of us...not enough play hours in the day and so many goodies!!

Serendipity Stamps is one of the sponsors this go 'round so I just had to show off another image from the Fall Pops set

Here's a little close up of the new sweet pumpkins in Serendipity's Fall Pops set that was just released. You can see the clear heat embossing on the black outline image and the wink of stella (love a little shine) on the pumpkins I colored with copics, fussy cut, and popped on top!!

Here's the full card..

The branch from Serendipity's Leaf Pops was stamped with black onto my sponged background and then heat embossed with clear. The first set of pumpkins and sentiment were created the same way. I stamped the pumpkins again onto XPress It Blending cardstock, colored with copics, fussy cut, and popped on top. Last, I sprayed a little water. 

HERE's  the link to all of Serendipity's new dies and stamps. HERE's the link to play along in the NBUS challenge!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

This card is the complete package! You have created a wonderful fall card with that beautiful background and those amazing glittery punkins! I love it, Vickie! I always forget that bit about what an cool impact a few drops of water can have on a background, so thanks for the reminder! And thank you so much for the shoutout and for playing in my NBUS Challenge #5!! Hugs, Darnell
