Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs August release! Don’t you just LOVE the Boho patterns & fabulous dies? So fun! This is also for today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A287), to use an odd number of stamps…I used 7….the greeting, little flower, 2 butterflies on top & 3 more (different) butterflies on the background.
So in the spirit of fun, my card uses a water color & stenciled background in bright red/orange. I stamped the different butterflies with Versafine randomly over the background then die cut it with the largest die of the Boho Background die. The inner part of the die was used to die cut the black lattice on top. The greeting was stamped on one of the stitched ovals & I stamped one of the little flowers all around & added just a touch of color. The big Boho butterfly was stamped on another section of the water color bg, die cut & I used a white gel pen to add some white dots for a little brightness.
Here’s the inside where I used a cut off strip of the front & some more butterflies.

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge(WT538) asks us to use sequins. I’m also using one the Technique Challenges (TLC533) from a few weeks back which had us making a stencil using a hot glue gun.
I first made the stencil on a hot glue mat, peeled it up (when cool) and placed it on my card stock. Then I sponged on the colors from a rainbow pad and spritzed it a bit using some thinned down white acrylic paint in a fine mister. I think I actually liked the stencil better than the result, lol. It looked a little undefined so I used a Micron pen to sort of outline the petals. Here’s what the stencil looks like.
I die cut the layers, stamped the greeting, added a fussy cut umbrella and attached the sequins (upside down, just for a change).

Welcome to the April Challenge for Serendipity Stamps! This month the challenge is Monograms & Verse! You can get all the details over on the Serendipity Challenge Blog. We have something new…a “Stamp of the Month”. Each month a different image will be 50% off. This month- it’s the Jar Label. And as always, we have a have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player.
For my Monogram card, rather than just have the Monogram by itself, I used the Monogram snipped from the Thanks die (I also snipped off a bit of the flourish) as the first letter in my greeting. I used a stamp positioner to move the lines of the greeting to better fit the Monogram. I love this Giraffe set and rather than color it, I used a piece of drywall mesh (it’s sticky on the backside) as a stencil, masked the sides, sponged some ink through it and added a little more color in a few of the squares w/ Copics. The image was stamped on top & die cut. I added a black mat then put it back on the larger piece it was cut from so it looks like the grid continues. A few of the sequins from the Wood Sequin combo were sprinkled here & there.
