Serendipity Stamps September Blog Hop #1







Its time again for Serendipity Stamp's first Blog Hop of the month.  As a design team member I get to showcase some of the amazing product available at the Serendipity Stamps store.

When you hop with us you increase your chances of winning the $20.00 gift certificate to the Serendipity Stamps Store that one randomly selected commenter will win!!   You may leave your comments through Sunday.  Mary will announce the name of the winner on the SS blog on Monday September 11th.

Summer is flying by so what a better way to see it go than with some kites! I cut my top panel using the "Kites Reverse Die".  The reverse dies are nifty because they cut out some detail leaving open space but they also leave a lot of cut detail for fine definition. I layered a piece of patterned paper behind the openings.  I cut my Dream die from the same paper, cut two more Dream die cuts from white cardstock before gluing the patterned paper on to it for both strength and dimension and attached it to my card front using foam tape.

My next card features a cool Tree Frame stamp.  I love this image because it makes a sweet frame for a funny sentiment like this or can be used to create a scene.  You could string a banner between the trees too! Lots of possibilities : ) 



Ok enough from me - here is a list of the Serendipity Stamps Design Team with links to their blogs.  I hope that you will visit each blog and leave them some love.  We love your comments!

What a great idea that reverse die kite is and so effective. The dream sentiment is so perfect with your gorgeous card. The tree frame looks so pretty on your second card and does frame the sentiment beautifully x

I'm thinking the kite card and the fantastic way you highlighted the die in red is amazing! Reminds me of Nebraska afternoons flying a kite with my siblings. The soft tree card is a hoot and a surprise with that sentiment!. So glad you're feeling stronger and sharing more of your beautiful crafting style.

How pretty your kites card, Patti! I'm aiming to give mine a go for the next hop; fingers crossed my results will be alright! Your framed trees: wonderful and oh, how true the sentiment! Another duo of showcase delights!

Two great cards Patti. I adore the monochromatic tress in that pretty yellow, and the kite die designed in that quite CAS style looks wonderful in the red and white and what a great idea to layer the patterned paper behind which makes the red more interesting. x
