April Stamp of the Month!
Get Morning Glory for 50% off during April!  I will admit I have a love/hate relationship with Morning Glories.   I once planted them along a fence – they are beautiful!   But for years since then I’ve been battling the little sprouts that volunteer EVERYWHERE to keep them from climbing up the zinnias, tomatoes, roses, and everthing else.   That’s my warning to you.   However – our big gorgeous Morning Glory stamp won’t cause any trouble at all – it’s full of beautiful open spaces to be filled with color!

What’s In Your Garden?

Hydrangea - Big Little - Miriam Napier

It’s that time when the world is lush with color and scent and fluttering and buzzing.   Even if your garden consists of a small pot of petunias on your windowsill – you’ve got summer.   Here’s a sampling of Summer at Serendipity Stamps, all courtesy of DT Member Miriam Napier.  Below the cards is a list of all the stamps used.

Thanks to Serendipity’s great customers for your patience!   Serendipity Stamps is one-woman operation and while my goal is to get all orders shipped within a week, this summer I’ve gotten behind more than once.   Back on track now!

Remember to check the “related products” listed below each stamp and die.   I’m adding lots of great $1 cling stamp bargains!

Sunflower Large, Seasons, Flowers

English Rose, With Sympathy

Pansy Corner, The Earth Laughs

Flowers! Flowers! Flowers!

It’s May so of course it’s time to focus on flowers.   You can double dip with two Flower Challenges right now.   Serendipity Stamps is sponsoring the CASology challenge this week and the cue is – you guessed it – FLOWER!  Make your CAS card with a Serendipity Stamps image and you can also enter it in the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog’s challenge – FLOWERS!

Can You Resist Flowers?

When you pop over to the SSCB you’ll see that our DT’s challenge this week is to create designs that include Flowers AND a resist technique.   Each member chose a different resist technique – check it out for lots of great ideas and inspiration!

This little CAS card was made using our Wildflower and For You Small stamps.   I colored the rubber with aqua crayons, spritzed it with water, stamped, and then added a bit more color where needed.

What else would we pick for the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog challenge for May?   Flowers!   We kick it off today with an added challenge for the SSDT.   They had to use one of the letters from our Floral Alphabet.   Hop on over to the Challenge Blog and see what they did.

The image above is the letter “B – Black eyed Susan” from the Floral Alphabet, water colored by the Cathy Ledeker, the artist who created this alphabet.   Just look at all the amazing detail in this 2″ letter.

Be sure to take advantage of the Alphabets sale – and throw in a grab bag on your way out!
