The challenge this month at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog is to use a new product. Bet you have something laying around that you haven’t used! Whip up a card and be sure to include a Serendipity Stamps image and submit it to the SSCB by October 9th and you could win our random drawing for a $20 Gift Card! Be sure to hop over to the SSCB to see what new things our DT has used today!
The card above was created by DT member Jeanne Jachna using our Take Time stamp. Jeanne also used the new PPP Mini Tag Dies and coordinated her shapes by using the PPP Stitched Banner Duo Dies too! Serendipity Stamps carries the entire line of Pretty Pink Posh Dies! These clean and simple dies are the perfect accompaniment to Serendipity’s elegant images.
There’s More To This Die Than Meets the Eye!
We put a lot of design work and effort into each of our dies. We want you to get the biggest bang for your buck. Why design a die that can only be used a few weeks out of the year? For example our Season’s Greetings die was designed so that you can use each word separately. Below you see that SSDT member Karen Amidon used just the “Greetings” with our current 50% Off Stamp of the Month – Wheel in Snow. You can use “Seasons” all year long – with flowers or leaves, birds or bunnies. And of course Greetings pairs perfectly with lots of our small $1 Cling stamps to create Christmas Greetings, Thanksgiving Greetings, New Year, or even Birthday Greetings. Be sure to scroll down below the stamps and dies at www.serendipitystamps.com to see other images that coordinate!
You still have plenty of time to order stamps and dies and receive them in time to create fun Halloween cards! Especially if it’s a CAS card like the one you see above. Serendipity Stamps Design Team member Marybeth Lopez created this adorable card using our new Halloween Pops stamp set and the PPP Stitched Borders 2 die set. Or how about the card below? SSDT member Jenny Gropp created it using our new Creepy Wreath Die (it comes with fun accessories like the cat, skull, ghost, pumpkin, bats etc), Fraidy Cat stamp and on the inside our Have a Wicked stamp. You could make all sorts of versions of this card – use bats instead of cats – or ghosts or a variety! Be sure to click the links to these stamps and dies to see lots more examples of cards made with these items!
That’s the theme for our October Serendipity Stamps Challenge. Create a card using a new product (and a Serendipity Stamps image) and submit it for your chance to win our blog badge or a shot at winning our random drawing for a $20 Gift Certificate!
$1 Cling Stamps Go With Serendipity Stamps Dies
We have lots and lots of stamps in our $1 Cling Stamp sale! Many of them coordinate with our dies. For example the “Thanksgiving” stamp works great with our Blessings Die. Or how about the Boo! stamp with the Creepy Wreath die? There are lots of options! Check them out!
Serendipity Stamps is sponsoring this weeks’ CASology Challenge – the cue word is SILLY! Enter your Clean and Simple AND silly card for your chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to use at www.serendipitystamps.com.
When I heard “silly” I immediately thought of this card created by DT alumni Sue Eldred years ago for one of our challenges. The theme was “70’s”. Sue had a great story about a wild pair of pants she had with a loud floral print. Back then, she loved those pants – who wouldn’t? Now? She says “What was I thinking!?!”

This is one of the cards from our hop! Marybeth Lopez created this using our new Hocus Pocus stamp. This large stamp is great for creating a quick card – just stamp, add a bit of color or bling and you’re done! Want to see the other cards from the hop? Just scroll down a bit to the post and you’ll find a list of the designer’s links. Enjoy!
