Serendipity Stamps - JUNE Blog Hop #2!


Welcome to the second BLOG HOP for June!
This time I used the cute SUMMER die!
On this card I used Distress Oxide Inks on shimmer paper
and clear embossed it before I die cut SUMMER.
It gives it a nice shine!

 

For the background on this one I applied my Oxide inks then clear
embossed some shells on top.
Glossy Accents is added to the sun to make it SHINE!  
I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide ink 
to color the edges of my card so it would match.


Inside I stamped one of the cute shells In Distress Oxide Broken China.
Finished size of both cards is 4" square.

Serendipity Stamps - JUNE Blog HOP!



Welcome to Serendipity Stamps JUNE Blog Hop!  I was inspired by this
new beautiful quote called I Will Write Peace.
This card is 4 1/2" square and the sentiment is heat embossed.


My second card uses different colors and the Dragonfly stamp
on the background.  The sentiment is clear embossed as are
the dragonflies.


I had a customer ask for this sentiment in a stamp so 
I asked Mary to create it and she did!  Love it and the font!
Thanks Mary!

Finished size is 5" square.

Serendipity Stamps - MAY Blog Hop!



Welcome to the Serendipity HOP for MAY!  I've been playing with the new 
Distress Oxide Inks and made this background with those inks.  

I stamped the roller coaster with Versafine Onyx Black 
and added some black glaze pen to it. 
I used more Oxide inks and a paintbrush to fill in the flags and trees.


I stamped the sentiment with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink. 
It is a great pigment ink for sentiments!

Serendipity Stamps - April Blog Hop!



Welcome to Serendipity Stamps April Blog Hop!
I have some new goodies to show you today.
We asked Mary to create a playing card die with hearts, diamonds,
spades and clubs for all you card players!
I made a shaker card and used the dies to cut all those
cute little suits. The card die cut the hole in the front
of the frame and I backed it with acetate.


She also made a set of sentiments to go with them!
So fun and cute.  
My white liner was cut with the card die.
Finished size is 4 x 5 1/4.
