Isn’t this Kites Reverse die wonderful? I love that it’s all one piece & does the partial swirls as well. I die cut it into the Recollections heavy wt c/s…although it says it’s 110# it’s way heavier than the other 110# c/s. I wanted to be able to pull up the swirls slightly w/o worrying about it bending or tearing. I had a watercolor bg I made ages ago w/ blues & greens & a little iridescent medium (very sparkly IRL) & I loved the colors but wasn’t crazy about the overall look of it. So just using bits & pieces behind the kites was the perfect solution. I backed it w/ a very fine, smooth glitter c/s & let it show thru around the edges & under the kite tails. All that was left was to stamp the greeting & add a few sequins. 

Here’s a look at the inside using a few leftover glitter kite parts.

Welcome to the Aug #1 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!
If you arrived here from Miriam’s blog, you’re in the right place..if not, you may want to head over there first.

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday Aug 6 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Aug 7 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Airplane! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

To make my summer lighthouse card, I used a small piece of a Brushos watercolor background I had in my stash. After die cutting the white rectangle, I also die cut a large oval & placed the watercolor bg behind it. The Lighthouse was die cut once out of white & once out of royal blue & pieced together. The little windows were colored w/ a couple of yellow Copics. The Summer & lower part of the hello tag were also die cut twice each & stacked. I used the clouds from the Hot Air Balloon Reverse die & also a larger cloud on top of the Hello. I had the die cut frame leftover from something else, so I sponged on similar colors & added it behind the white layer.

Here’s a look at the inside. I left it blank for now, until I decide who it’s going to.

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS439) on Splitcoaststampers is Friendship & this should be perfect for a friend, to just drop a note to say hi.


I thought this  greeting would be perfect w/ the Big Mouth Bass (isn’t he a cutie?) w/ some wavesBubbles & dragonflies floating around. Only problem was, the Fishing Pole kinda faced the wrong direction. Misti & a piece of blank rubber to the rescue! (Here’s a tutorial so you can see how it’s done.) I put the fishing pole into my Misti & the blank rubber piece under it. Inked & stamped the fishing pole several times onto the rubber. Wanted to make sure I got good ink coverage. Then I place the white card stock on top of the rubber & rubbed it w/ my hand & presto! A reverse image! Then I added the fish, waves, bubbles & dragonflies. After coloring, I added a little Wink of Stella to the fish & dragonflies. Hopefully you can see it a bit in the closeup below.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
