Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop- November!!

Oh my word.... It's November... are you getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas??? Me, I can't believe it's almost here!!

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. 

For today, it's all about winter, brrr...

Love the season but, not the cold!!!

There is a new illustrator at Serendipity Stamps... isn't that font fun!! I die cut an oval with Cherry Lynn dies (Mary carries an assortment in her shop) for the sentiment- Happy Holidays set. In the meantime, I traced the next smallest oval onto my white cardstock (to give me an idea of the space to stamp the florals). Colored with copics and added a little patterned paper and twine.

Here's a close up of the sentiment and greenery!

For my next card, I used the Snowballs Reverse die and created a stencil. This was laid over the top of some blue paper that was sponged with Distress inks. Once the stencil was in place over the blue card stock and secured with washi tape, I added some white modeling paste to make my snow. Stamped that sweet Snowman on Skis image, colored with copics, and fussy cut. The "snow hill" was created using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders One dies (available in the Serendipity shop) and everything was layered with foam for dimension. 

 A little close up of the snowman/snowwoman and snow!!

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!!
