Seasons and Greetings

1371taketimepppjeanne

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!

Endless Watercolor Possibilities

Serendipity Stamps Design Team Member Karen Amidon created this beautiful card for our current Watercolor challenge.   This beautiful Birch stamp can be purchased with the quote or without the quote.  Karen has used it both ways.  Our Birch, Maple, and Oak leaves are designed to coordinate with McGill’s Super Giant and Giant leaf punches.

Try your hand at watercoloring a Serendipity Stamps image and enter your creation in our challenge!  You could win $20 off your next order. But don’t wait – today, October 7th, is the last day to enter.   Below you see the inside of Karen’s card.   She used Serendipity’s Seasons and Friends stamps on the inside.

All this watercoloring has me REALLY in the mood to watercolor!   And, as it so often seems to happen to me, I can’t find my watercolor paint set (I’m fairly sure it’s in the middle of Missouri with my middle daughter) nor my watercolor crayon set (I’m quite sure it’s on the east side of Missouri with my eldest daughter).   But that’s the great thing about watercolor – there are endless possibilities – paint, crayons, pencils, ink pads, markers, and more that I don’t know about!  Now, where are my watercolor pencils…

Try your hand at watercoloring!

We all sometimes get stuck in our own ruts.   Sometimes you need a bit of a challenge to get you out.   Like, say, the current Serendipity Stamps challenge Blog Challenge – to create a design using a Serendipity Stamps image and a watercolor technique.   Easy!   You can do it!  It’s a great one to try because there are so many ways to watercolor!   Check out the different ways our DT used.

DT member Jenny Gropp used our Quilted Pumpkin stamp to get out of her rut and try out some watercolors.

Harvest Time

Even though I live about 10 miles from the Kansas border, I don’t see a lot of wheat in the fields around here.    We’re more of a corn and bean county.   But our Wheat Sheaf rubber stamp sure see’s a lot of action this time of year!   Just take a look at what folks are doing with it.  The card above was created by DT Member Sue Eldred.   Below is a gallery of cards from Holly Craft, Jeanne Jachna, Carolyn Hurst, Lori Craig, and Helen Berry.   Send us your Wheat Sheaf project!
