It’s a New Year!
We’re switching things up a bit here at Serendipity Stamps. On the first day of each month we’ll start a new Challenge at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. On the 3rd Wed. of each month our Design Team will host a Blog Hop. And all month long we’ll have a 50% off Stamp of the Month! So you’ll have lots of time to create and enter our challenge for your chance to win our blog badge or our random gift certificate for $20!
January Challenge – Stripes!
Our challenges this year will focus on patterns and textures – something almost all projects include! We’re starting out with Stripes – any amount of stripes will do – do you see the stripes on the adorable little box above? DT Alumni Holly Craft created this box using the following stamps and dies: Love Die, Heart Scroll Die, Heart Solid Die, Cupcake Die, Quilted Heart, Happy Valentines Day, and Valentine Postoid stamps.
January Catalog Release – Happy Birthday!
Each month we’ll feature a group of stamps from our catalog that support a theme. The Blog Hop on the 3rd Wed of the month will show off that group of images. This month our theme is Birthdays. Here’s your chance to check off that resolution you made to make and mail all your birthday cards early! Click the link below to open and print the release.
Serendipity Stamps January-Birthday
Stamp of the Month
Each and every month – all month long – we’ll feature one stamp at 50% off. This month’s stamp is our Party Background. Fantastic for birthday cards but also for any kind of party theme!
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!
The winner of our random drawing of one commenter from our August Blog Hop is JCobb. She wins a $20 gift card to use at www.serendipitystamps.com! Contact me at email@example.com to find out how to claim your prize!
I am so excited with our new release! Everything is so bright and fun – a great last of summer hurrah! The two cards you see here are from Design Team member Jeanne Jachna. On the top card, Jeanne used our new Balloons Reverse Die and Let Your Dreams Soar stamp. On the bottom card Jeanne used our new Birds Dies, A Little Note Stamp, and the PPP Stitched Banner Duo Die. Isn’t that little top hat adorable? The set includes 3 hats as well as flowers and holly to decorate them!
July is the time when lots of us start heading to our craft rooms again. It’s hot outside and spending a few hours crafting in the cool sets all things right. Many of you are starting to think about Christmas Cards! So I thought our Winter Doe would be a good choice for our 50% Off Stamp of the Month. This stamp is also a great one for making monochrome cards – which is our July Challenge at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. Head on over to the Challenge Blog right now to see what our Design Team has done for their Monochrome cards!
Serendipity Stamps Design Team member Jeanne Jachna created this beautiful card using our Winter Doe and Nature Gives stamps.

What you see above and below are the front and inside of Serendipity Stamps Design Team member Julie Warner’s March Release card. Look closely at this bright festive card and you’ll see that it’s a shaker card! Julie provides a great tutorial showing how she made this on her blog – check it out! Julie used our new You Make Me Happy and Elephant images on the front of her card. On the inside Julie used our Happy Birthday and our Cupcake images (the cupcake is currently on our 50% Off Wood Mounted Stamp sale).
Also, I want to thank everyone for your kind words of encouragement. Two weeks ago I fell down a flight of stairs and broke one of the vertebrae in my neck. I had surgery to fuse the C6 and C7 vertebrae and to repair damage to the nerves in that area that affect my arms and hands. I’m back on my feet now and getting caught up with orders. You have all been so lovely and patient with me! Your thoughtfulness is a great boost for me! Thank you!
Serendipity Stamps’ winner of the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop is Katie Brooks! Katie – contact me at email@example.com so I can get your Tea Stamp and Die set to you!
