Serendipity Stamps- August Blog Hop #!

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date!! So I took some time off and got my days all mixed up!! When I woke up this am (looking at my phone) I realized it was Wednesday but, this girl had to get to work so here I am just a "titch" behind!!

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 Marybeth Lopez blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below. 

So, I played with this month's 50% off image...Acorns and Sweetgum

When I started this card, I stamped the image for a background onto watercolor paper and heat embossed with gold. Then, I colored the image with my zigs. Yes, acorns and leaves can be different colors (in my world anywho!) Then,  decided to spritz with water and the colors ran- not exactly what I was going for :) It is pretty IRL.

Here's a little close up of the sentiment. I die cut the Thanks in the pink card stock as well as gold and layered them slightly offset. The sentiment was adhered with foam dots for dimension. 

 Looking for some awesome inspiration?   

Other deals....

The Sympathy die is the 50% off die of the month- I had another card in the works using these two specials (stamp and die) but, since I was a little off on the day of the week- you'll see that next time :)

As well, There is a clearance sale on select dies – 20% off.   They will be listed under the “Specials” tab

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!!

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

Pretty background and sentiment! Love the colors and the font of the 'Thanks' die! So pretty to offset the die cuts for a layered look!

Such a bright and pretty result using the acorns and leaves Vickie, and sometimes the unexpected result is the prettiest. I love the offset layered sentiment too which goes perfectly. x

I see a lot of pink in our Fall leaves so I think you've got this right, Vickie! Love your emboss resist! So artsy and fun!
