Serendipity Stamps - April Blog Hop #2!


Welcome to the 2nd HOP for April!  I've been playing with the new 
Distress Oxide Inks and made this background with those inks.  
They make a great setting for some bold words and images.

I stamped and clear embossed the butterflies so they shine.  The SISTERS
are die cut 3 times and glued together for thickness.


Inside I stamped the funny new sentiment from Serendipity.
I used Oxide Faded Jeans for the ink.
Finished size is an A-2.

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.

Serendipity Stamps - March Blog Hop #2!


Welcome to the March Blog Hop!
I was in the mood to do a card with spring colors.
I just love these Little Critters dies for certain occasions!
This time its for a baby card. 
The HAPPY is from the new Happy background die.  
It is a bit smaller than the original Happy die.


Here is a closeup of the darling little giraffe.  I backed it with some
plaid paper.  The eye is done with a black gel pen.


Inside I used the SWEET die for a sentiment.  
The stitched flag die is by My Favorite Things.
