Girl Stuff

Today is the 2nd posting for Serendipity Stamps’ “My Girl” challenge.   Our design team is showing off their Girl Power – making cards with a feminine twist.   The card above was created by Serendipity Stamps Design Team member Jeanne Jachna for our 1st “My Girl” posting.  She used our Aprons stamp – which just happens to be the May Stamp of the Month – 50% Off!  I love this card – the aqua’s and pinks remind me of a couple of the Feedsack aprons that I have from my grandmother!  And did you notice the wonderful little “wood” sequins?   Be sure to add those to your cart at www.serendipitystamps.com.

Want some more inspiration?   Just jump over to the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog to see all sorts of Feminine cards!

CASology – Wine Flight

1007EatDrinkmary

I’m not sure what it says about me that “wine” is the first thing that popped into my head when I saw that CASology’s cue word this week is “Flight.”  Let’s just say that it’s been a long, hard winter and I’m ready to have some friends over for a wine tasting on the patio.

The great news is that Serendipity Stamps is the sponsor this time!   So head on over there to play along and you could win a $20 Gift Certificate to use at www.serendipitystamps.com.

For my card I used our Eat Drink cling set which includes the Wine Glass and the Eat Drink stamp you see plus two other stamps!   I also used our Wine Border stamp.   I stamped in black and colored with pencils.  Easy Peasy!  Now – head on over to CASology for some inspiration and then enter your own “Flight” inspired card!

Week 144 - Flight

Cards With a Country Flair

1149summerbarnjulie

This is a great time of year to take a drive through the country.   Pastures are emerald green and full of baby calves.   Fields are freshly plowed or, if you’re lucky, full of the tiny purple flowers (weeds) called henbit.  Last week I passed a field full of butter colored winter wheat ready for harvest.  The challenge this month at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog is to create a Monogram card or a card that features a verse.   DT member Julie Warner created the card above using our Summer Barn image and our One Day In the Country verse.   She also added a die cut “C”, from our Celebrate Die and a die cut “t” from our Sweet Die to add some dimension and highlight the verse.   Julie also stamped the inside of her card using our Winter Barn and Thinking Of You ($1 Cling Sale!) stamps.   I’m lucky enough to drive by my own beautiful old barn everyday on my way up my driveway.

Random Garden Card

 

1348practicerandommarylee

 

I first saw the phrase “Practice Random Acts of Gardening” on a bumper sticker.  What a fun, whimsical idea!   It reminded me of a video I’d seen years ago about a man who was a “guerilla gardener”  – he planted flowers in potholes, sidewalk cracks and any other odd place he could find.   I tried to convey this idea of flowers coming up where you don’t expect them.   My little fence is the bottom from our Daisy Garden Die and the flowers growing up in front of the fence are from our Daisy Border die.  I used the CL   Fanciful Flourish Mini to add a bit of extra vine.   And last but not least is the Practice Random Acts of Gardening stamped on one of the new Stitched Tag Dies from PPP.

You can see the video of the pothole gardener here.  Are you inspired?   I am!   I’m planning to stop by the local nursery, pick up a 4 pack of marigolds and find some potholes!   I’ll be sure to report back!

Monogram and Verse Cards

 

006elegantolivemarycrop2

April’s challenge at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog is to make a card that features a monogram or a verse.  Monograms are huge right now.   My college-aged daughters and their friends have monogrammed ball caps, t-shirts, backpacks, even shoes!   I recently came across a pretty monogrammed locket with little tintype photos inside of a man and woman that look to be taken about the time of the civil war.   The monogram is so intricately intertwined that I had a hard time figuring out the letters.   I’m still trying to work out who’s locket it is (it was in my .   I created my monogram card using Serendipity’s Elegant Alphabet and the Olive Branch Large.  Want some inspiration?   Pop on over to the Challenge Blog and see what our Design Team has come up with!
