    Serendipity Stamps - October Blog Hop #2



    Welcome to another Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop! 
     I used the elegant Season's Greetings die on my card 
    and die cut it twice in black mirror cardstock.
    I just love Tim Holtz's new Christmas Stash paper pad and
    used it here. The vintage look goes with the sentiment nicely.


    Inside I stamped Merry Merry Merry and the 
    Chickadees stamps.
    Finished card is 5 3/4 x 4 1/2.

    I used Serendipity's Wheat Sheaf stamp and heat embossed

    Welcome to the second HOP this month for Serendipity Stamps!
    You should have arrived here from Marybeth Lopez's blog.

    I used Serendipity's AUTUMN die on my card.
    I also used Echo Park's 12x12 Celebrate Autumn paper.
    I die cut the word 3 times in brown card stock 
    (and glued them together)
    and once in green so I could cut off the 
    leaves and glue them on top.


    I cut out a second image of the banner, flower and acorn top,
    inked the edges and popped it up over the top of the acorn.

    Finished size is 4 1/2" x 5 3/4".

    Serendipity Stamps - AUGUST Blog Hop #1





    Welcome to the first HOP this month for Serendipity Stamps!
    You should have arrived here from Marybeth Lopez's blog.

    I used Serendipity's CREATE die on my card.
    I also used Alexandra Renke's Artist paper.



    I started out cutting the paper to show the images 
    I wanted from the 12x12 paper. Then I taped down and 
    die cut the stitched rectangles.  I matted each in grey then 
    attached them to my card with foam tape.
    The CREATE die was cut 3 times in grey and glued together.


    Inside I finished it off with some Renke washi tape.  
    Finished size is 4" x 6 1/2"
