You’ll Want to See These Cards!

I had a difficult time coming up with a title for this post.   I wanted to be sure it caught your eye and drew you in.   I really meant it – you won’t want to miss the cards created by Karen Amidon for Serendipity Stamps.   It is with the greatest warmth and sadness that I bid goodbye to Karen Amidon as she moves on from the SSDT.  Please take a minute to see the work of this amazing talent.

Karen joined the Serendipity Stamps Design Team in 2013.   She was new to blogland, but her talent stood out from day 1!  Here is the first card she made for us (for a Tri-Shutter Card Challenge).

Over the last 4 years Karen has evolved and grown into an amazingly versatile, creative artist.   She is fantastic at coloring, precise with layout and photography, and can design everything from the complicated you see above to the clean and simple you see below.

Even the inside of Karen’s cards stand out and could easily pass for the front!

Karen’s talents run the gamut from all forms of stamping to the super creative use of dies.

Karen’s use of color really stands out – she is one of the few stampers I know who uses the entire color wheel!

Thank you Karen Amidon!   Want to see more?   Just click here and scroll through Karen’s Serendipity Stamps posts,  as you reach the bottom, just click “Older Posts” to see more.

One of my favorite stamps on the June Design Sheet is our new Mill stamp.   I know that a lot of stampers (me included) might look at this stamp and think “No way could I color that”.   But just look at the card above from Serendipity Stamps Designer Marybeth Lopez.   Marybeth shows how easy it is to create a stunning card with just a few areas of color.   Notice how carefully show chose her colors to coordinate with her cardstock.   She adds in a bit of detail with the brown trim on the Mill and viola – a gorgeous, yet Clean And Simple card!   Marybeth also used one of our newest PPP dies, Stitched Notes – be sure to check it out – there’s a lot more to it than meets the eye!

My Sincere Apologies

Last week the Serendipity Stamps Blog was hacked.   Before I discovered this, the automatic email subscriptions were sent out to thousands of our customers.   I’m so sorry for this awful mistake and for the shock many of you experienced when you opened these emails.   Please rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to remedy the problem!

I want to thank all of you, Serendipity’s amazing customers, for your kind phone calls and emails.   I was overwhelmed by your concern and care!

Shortly we will begin again to send you cheerful, colorful, creative, G-RATED, emails with the beautiful hand-crafted cards you’ve come to expect.   For now, I leave you with Patti’s card, created with our new Oops A Daisy Cling Stamp Set and our Summer Flower Pops Background Stamp.

Above is a beautiful and simple card from DT member Karen Amidon!   One look at this card – the color, the shells – takes me right to the beach.   Karen used our new set of Seasons Dies and our Shells cling set.   Below is another card that just screams summer to me.   I was out of town over the hot weekend and came home to pots of wilting flowers – except my good old reliable geraniums!   Birgit used our Geranium Large and Summer Flower Background stamps and our Smile die.

Spring has sprung here in the midwest!   Everywhere I look there are flowers bursting with colors.    Around here it’s Dogwood Trees, Tulips, Daffodils, Pear Trees and the list goes on and on.   Even the dandelions are glorious!   In the card above, Marybeth used our new “You and I Are Sisters” stamp.   She also used our Playing Card die set.   Wait….what?   Yup!   The little flowers in the corners are made from Spades and Clubs!  This fantastic new die set includes a card sized die with several sizes of all suits.  Did I mention Dandelions earlier?    I’m a dandelion lover!   Especially when in the hands of talented water color artists SSDT Alumni Holly Craft!   This is an oldie but a goodie – a water color “study” created with our Dandelion Plant, Paint Brush, Ink Splash and Celebrate the Ordinary stamps.

So sorry for the delay!

Please accept my apologies for the delay in orders the last couple of weeks.   I’ve had a family emergency followed by a couple days visit with my daughter followed by another family emergency and funeral.    I don’t mean this to be an excuse, merely an explanation.

If you would like to cancel your order please just email me and I will take care of it.   serendipity@serendipitystamps.com.

I should be back in my shop Monday and will begin catching up then!

Congratulations to Carla Hundley!   Carla – you won our random drawing for a $20 gift certificate to use at www.serendipitystamps.com!   Email me at serendipity@serendipitystamps.com to find out how to claim your prize!

I am so in love with these new background dies!   Talk about a quick card with a lot of impact!   And think of all the possibilities.  Carol’s used the Happy Background Die for the card above.    St. Patrick’s Day card?   Yes, but it could just as easily be used for a birthday, anniversary, Easter, or just to wish someone a Happy Day!  Marybeth and Vickie added our new adorable Chick With Butterfly over our Floral Cuts Background Die and Swirl Cuts Background Die below.   You could just as easily add our Bloom Die cut over the floral background or Balloons over the swirls!  Use your craft pick to lift up some flower petals and swirls to let some color peek through.   So many possibilities!
