The beautiful card above was created by DT member Julie Warner using our Spring Flower Pops stamps and dies and our Bloom die.  I had to make a dozen little cards to include in care packages to send out to the college kids in our congregation.  They needed to be super quick and easy and you see the results below.   I used our Little Critters die set and our Uplifting Sentiments Stamp set.

April Challenge -Embossing

I’ll never forget the first time I saw heat embossing.   I was in my first stamping class in 1999 and we watched as the instructor sprinkled boring-looking powder on a stamped image.   Then she heated it up and Viola!   Magic!  I was hooked.   Then there were the brass stencils.   And then embossing folders.   And rubber mats to use with dies… Embossing options are endless.   Check out the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog today to see lots of embossing examples from our Design Team.   Then pull out that heat gun or embossing stylus and get to work.   Enter your card for a change to win a $20 Gift Card or maybe even our Blog Badge!

The card above was created by DT member Jenny Gropp using our new “Meow Mix” – a set of fun, crazy, cat verses.   Jenny also used one of the Tim Holtz Crazy Cats.   You can purchase the Crazy Cats through Jenny at Impressive Ideas – just email Jenny@impressiveideas.com or call 678-352-0575.

The card below was created by DT member Karen Amidon using our Floral Frame and Embellishments die set.   This would be a great die to use your coupon on!   Notice that Karen “embossed” with the die?

Circles and Dots

That’s the Serendipity Stamps Challenge this month – just submit a card that includes a Serendipity Stamps image AND a circle or a dot.   Simple as that!   We’ll pick one random entry to win a $20 Gift Certificate.   Plus our Design Team will check out your cards and let you know what they love about them.   One entry will also earn our blog badge!  Head on over to our Challenge Blog and check out how easy it is to get a circle or a dot on your card.

Stamp of the month – 50% Off

Our release this month will focus on cards that encourage and/or congratulate.   The stamp we’re featuring at 50% off is our “To The World” stamp.   One of the things I love most about this verse stamp is that it forces you to take a minute and figure out what it says.   That gives it time to sink in and let the reader know what you really are trying to say to him or her.   AND!   It’s a circle!  Be sure to check out our Blog Hop this Wed where our DT will be featuring a collection of cards of encouragement and congratulations.

On the card above, SSDT member Marybeth Lopez used our To The World stamp and our Lamb & Duckling stamp.

On the card below, SSDT member Julie Lopez used our brand new Butterfly Dream and Make a Wish stamps  and our Happy Birthday stamp and Daisy Garden die on her card.   Julie is the queen of creating her own “designer” paper.  (See the dots?)
