Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop!!

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 Tree Frame and Remember to Fall and Spring sentiment. I stamped the tree frame onto papertreyink select white twice and colored both with copics (using a loose pointillism technique)- one was fussy cut and added on top with foam for dimension. I also stamped and colored a few leaves to add in the lower left- a little twine in the upper right to balance it out. 

Here's a little close up so you can see the dimension.

For this card, I played with Serendipity's new Kites Reverse die. First I added distress ink to my craft mat, sprayed with water, and then smooshed my white cardstock in the ink. Next I cut the image with the die. This was layered onto a black card base for contrast. A couple thin lines and the Wish sentiment finished it off.

Here's a little close up of the die- I pulled some of the "wind lines" for a little dimension.

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!!

Such pretty cards!

Pat said...

The pointillism technique works really well for the leaves on the tree frame Vickie and I adore the mix of colour you have used with the kite, and the black background seen through the kits is very striking. x
