Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop- #2 September

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 Julie's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below. 

Today I made two cards.... the first...


For this card I played with Serendipity's new Rake which happens to be the 50% off stamp of the month. I stamped the rake onto papertreyink select white twice and colored with copics. I die cut the Fall die (from the Seasons die set) three times, layering it, and popping up with foam dots for a little dimension. 


A little close up of the rake and leaves.


 For this card I played with Serendipity's Leaves Reverse die. First I took a watercolor panel and using the "smooshing" technique added several Distress oxide inks to my craft mat. Then I sprayed with water and "smooshed" my white panel in the ink. Aren't the colors lovely!! I used the die to cut into a white panel and layered that on top. The sentiment is Nature Gives. To finish off it was adhered to an orange base and added a little twine. 


Here's a little close up so you can see the gorgeous color from my ink smooshing.

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!!

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

           Have a great day... hugs, Vickie!!

Cute Fall card. I like the colors.

What struck me right away about both cards is how you added the soft blue to the autumn shades. It makes your cards stand out. Great colour combos.
