Serendipity Stamps - JULY Blog Hop!



Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps JULY Blog Hop!  
We have some GREAT new products this month.
I have two cards to show you and Western is definitely my theme today!

You should have arrived here from the talented:


This Western card has two new dies - Bandana and Howdy!  
The Bandana die is 3 1/4" square so it makes for a great small card. 
 I cut it in red and black and took some of the black pieces and glued them in.



I die cut the HOWDY three times and glued them together to make it extra thick.
It needed to be bold to stand out against the busy die.
Finished size is 4 1/8" square.



Isn't this cowgirl the cutest?  I colored her up with Prismacolor Pencils and blended them with Gamsol.  My card base and green strip are both embossed.



I used the Howdy die to cut into my liner and back it with red.
Finished size is 4 3/4" square.

Special:   Free shipping on all US orders of $15 or more Continental US only.

Love the bandana look of the first card. The sentiment in the form of a rope is a fun idea.
The little cowgirl is darling.
