$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!
Jeanne Jachna made this card using the new Pumpkin Die and Happy Halloween Small (which is included in the Ghost With Pumpkin Cling Set).
All Halloween Stamps (and this die) are 20% off through Sept 26th.
Halloween projects are a great way to break out of the card-making “box”. So many great projects that are just a step away from what you’re used to doing on your cards! Here’s an adorable candy pouch that Miriam Napier created for the SS DT Halloween challenge this week. She simply added a tag made using the new Ghost With Pumpkin.
All Halloween Stamps and Dies are 20% Off Through Sept 26th.

This week’s challenge for the Serendipity Stamps Design Team was to create Halloween projects. What fun creations! Now I REALLY can’t wait for October’s cool weather, colorful leaves, and little kids dressing up and knocking on my door begging for candy! Jeanne Jachna set the mood just right with this card she made using our Witch Silhoutte. And just to help everyone get prepared we’re offering….

Holly Craft just sent a photo of this delightful little accordian book. She used the Pirate Puppy Cling set, 1121QCL.
When I was a girl I my mother and I used to visit an old cemetery in St. Louis. We weren’t visiting the graves – we didn’t know anyone there. We were hunting pinecones and acorns. My mom made the most beautiful wired pinecone wreaths with the natural treasures we’d find in the cemetery. As a result of these foraging trips, I’m not in the least superstitious about “graveyards” – indeed they can be beautiful, peaceful places to spend some time. But put a Graveyard in the hands of the Serendipity Stamps Design Team and there’s nothing peaceful about it! It’s a whole new world of creativity!
After you take a look at the cards below, head over to our Gallery to see our new Halloween section. Eventually I’ll have a whole new set of Galleries organzied by subject, just like this new Halloween section. Dozens of Halloween cards in one place!
The first card below was designed by Jenny Gropp – Serendipity’s Guest Designer. The one below that is from Sue Eldred. Both ladies used 1229H – Graveyard and 1228D Have a Wicked Good Day.
We’ve been so busy at Serendipity Stamps that today I had to go digging in dark corners to find boxes to ship orders. Ugh – that means spiders! I’m not a jump up and scream type when it comes to spiders – in fact I tend to carry the box over to the door and dump the little guys outside – but that doesn’t mean I LIKE them. However, I dare you not to like our new little Spider image – 1226E – especially after you see what some members of the SS design team created with him!
We’ll start with the awesome decorated pumpkin by Amy Cokley.
Next a card from Sue Eldred. In addition to the Spider, Sue used 851D – Who Loves Ya – which is on our Dollar Sale right now!
And last, but of course not least, is Lynda Benden’s card. Lynda too used a stamp from our Dollar Sale – Boo Lg – 660C.
FINALLY! I’ve got the new images up on the www.serendipitystamps.com website! Here are a couple to pique your interest. Now go to the New Stamps section to see the rest! The Design Team just got their batch so it won’t be long before they have some great new samples to show off for us!.
