Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop and Challenge!!

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog Hop! We love seeing what you make with your Serendipity Stamps and Dies. The challenge begins on the first of the month 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, but you get a whole month to join us! At the half way point we'll be showing another round of samples as well as celebrating with a monthly blog hop - showing you the latest products and offering another chance for you to win some goodies from Serendipity Stamps

Now we're at the halfway point!!

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. 

Ready for our latest challenge?
SSCB#58 Add Fabric! Add a swatch of fabric, length of lace or ribbon, or other fabric to your design. Feeling creative? Try stamping on fabric, or die cutting fabric embelishments to add to your design. Whatever you choose just be sure to include at least one Serendipity Stamps image (stamp or die) on your design!

You should have arrived here from Carol's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below.  

Want to go shopping? The stamp of the month for August is the Lamb with Heart.

Here's my first card....

For this card I started out by taking fabric and gluing it to a panel of white cardstock... from there I stamped the Christening Gown (think it works for a baby card too) onto PTI select white cardstock and coloring with copics (using colors that blended with the fabric. Added the new Welcome die and previously released Baby die on foam dots. Each word was die cut and layered for dimension

This card uses the stamp of the month.... Lamb with Heart (this link is to the cling set). Yes, another baby card!! The image was stamped on PTI Select white cardstock and colored with copics. I die cut an oval from white cardstock and the patterned paper using Cheery Lynn dies- these are sold in the Serendipity store also!! The patterned paper was adhered to the white cardstock and adhered over the image using foam for dimension. The Sweet die was cut three times and layered for dimension as well as using micro foam dots for dimension. Added a little twine. 

On the inside I stamped the Sugar and Spice sentiment. I also added a border at the bottom. The scallops were created using a Pretty Pink Posh die- Serendipity Stamps sells these also!!

Vickie, you've created a duo of absolutely charming baby cards! Love the fabric panel background; a marvelous canvas for your oh-so-pretty christening gown. And the wee lamb: oh my! Beyond darling! Love these!

Hi Vickie! Two wonderful cards! I love the non traditional colors that make them a stand out! And yes.. pretty bows too! :)

Vickie I love your fun baby cards! Love the pink and green combination on the first one and really love the red and dark grey on the lamb card. That plaid paper with the little scalloped border on the inside is a perfect tie-in!
