Deer Season

I know fall is here when my husband puts out the big styrofoam target, gets out his bow, and starts shooting arrows, most of which end up stuck in the hillside behind the target….I’m not a hunter – I like my warm bed too much for all that nonsense.    I’ll cook it – but don’t ask me to kill it OR clean it!  Here is a  card from our Design Team Alumni Holly Craft that exemplifies the beauty of nature and all her bounty.  Holly used our Buck & Doe 1183L image and May the Peace of the Lord 1195F.

Halloween DT Challenge

Below are the submissions from the Serendipity Stamps Design Team for the September Halloween Challenge.  They came up with some really great ideas!  Some designers sent me more than one design and I didn’t keep good notes on what was for the challenge and what was just for fun so I put them all in – the more the merrier!  Be sure to check out the gallery at the bottom of this post – there are multiple picture of some items there. 

Now it’s your turn!  Enter our Halloween Reader Challenge!  Just send a photo of your Halloween Project, made exclusively with Serendipity Stamps, to   Be sure to tell us your name and include your blog info if applicable!   The deadline for the Halloween Reader Challenge is October 15th.  A random entry will be chosen to win a $20 gift certificate for Serendipity Stamps!

Oldies Are Goodies

These two cards were made using images Serendipity Stamps released in earlier years.  When you’re shopping for Halloween images on the website, be sure to look at our Halloween stamp section in addition to the New Stamps section.  The first card is from Kathie Bailey, using our Witch – 795H image.  Notice how she mimicked the belt on the witches hat with her ribbon on the card?  The second card is from Lynda Benden and uses image 669H – Ghosties.   Both Kathie and Lynda have beautiful blogs where you can find more details for these cards – check out the links over to the right.

Everybody Loves Pumpkins!

These Tall Pumpkins – 1174H are the favorite of the design team!  Check out Jennifer, Anya and Sue’s versions below.  And below that is a non-pumpkin card.  Jennifer Woodward created this card specifically with the idea of designing a card with just a word stamp.   I think she did a great job – love all that glitter!  She used the 1175D- Happy Boo Day image.

Witchy, Witchy

Here are two witches for you – two very different cards made using 1176E – Witch Sihouette.  Holly Craft’s little pop-up card is amazing!  Check out her blog for instructions.  And Amy Cokley’s card shows a great use for hinged tabs (those probably have a much better name, but I’ll be darned if I know what it is!).

How Big is Your Trick or Treat Bag?

When I was a kid, we used pillow cases.  Those could hold a LOT of candy!  And they didn’t tear when it rained or when some mean kid tried to steal it from you.  Ahhhh – those were the days…  Holly’s card uses both sizes of our new image – 1177E Trick or Treat Bag Large and 1178B – Trick or Treat Bag Small (on sale for $1 right now!) as well as 1173D – Happy Trick or Treating

Costumed “Kids”

My parents moved into a new condo complex and all they do is party, party, party.   For every holiday, somebody has a party!  Here’s a picture of them dressed up as M&Ms for last years’ Halloween party.  Aren’t they fun?  (What posessed my father to wear those blue socks?).  And below them is Sue Eldred’s awesome card made using 1172G – Costume Kids and 1173D – Happy Trick or Treating.  You can also get both of these stamps together in Cling Set 1172QCL.

Skinny Pumpkins

Isn’t that an oxymoron?  Is there REALLY any such thing as a “skinny” pumpkin?  Well – that’s why the real name of this image is Tall Pumpkins – 1174H.   The design team really has had fun with these guys.  Check out Amy Cokley’s version below…
