Serendipity Blog Hop!

We have some great new dies from Serendipity Stamps for our BLOG HOP to show you today.  
I used "Baby", "Thanks" and the Floral Frame for my cards.

My first card has the new BABY word die.  
I cut it twice and glued the white one on top of the brown one to shadow it.
I think Baby cards are some of the most fun to make because the papers are so cute with great color schemes.

Inside I kept it simple with a Congratulations! stamp. 
Finished size of this card is 6 3/4 x 5.

 This card started out all green and black but I liked it better with a different colored butterfly.  So, I inked the thistle and butterfly separately with Distress Ink Pads.

Here is a close-up of the word die.  They cut really clean and pop right out of the die!
Finished size for this card is 6 x 4 7/8.

Isn't this a great frame?!  The floral design matches the butterflies!  
I popped it with tiny pieces of black foam tape.

I backed the floral butterflies in white and put foam tape on those too.

Inside I stamped the classic Happy Birthday and put a die cut of the small butterfly in grey.  
Finished size is 5 1/8 x 5 1/8.

There is a $20 Gift Code for one randomly chosen person who comments on ALL the blogs.

The winner will be posted on Mary's blog on Monday, May 19.
