Welcome to the Nov #1 Blog Hop
 for Serendipity Stamps

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 Nov 11 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Nov 12 on her Blog. On the first & third Wednesdays of every month, we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! The Special this month is the Covered Bridge stamp & Merry Christmas die – 50% off! 

For my very wintry scene, I placed the image into my Misti, stamped & colored the bridge scene, then masked it & the ground area. Since the trees are basically solid lines, I didn’t worry about masking them. The right side of the sky was sponged w/ the pink Distress inks & blue on the left. Then I spritzed it w/ mixture of very thin white acrylic paint & water. I mixed it about 3 or 4 to 1, (water to paint) in a mini mister. I’ve had this mix in this mister for at least a couple of years & so far it hasn’t clogged. I just shake it well before using each time. After removing the mask,  I used a white gel pen to add snow to the trees & rocks then stamped over the image again. The vellum overlay was embossed w/ a snowflake frame folder & I fussy cut out the center before sandwiching it between the cut out card front & a stitched frame, then I attached the bridge scene underneath. I also added a few snowflakes I punched out of white glitter paper. This is also for the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS614) & I chose THIS to case. 

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

Please be sure to comment on all the blogs..it is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!

The Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS505) is Trick or Treat! I have a really quick card. The background was in my stash, so I was already half way home.

I saw a greeting similar to this & thought hmmm..I can do that! It took a little finagling w/ the letters from a couple of word set dies, but I did it.  Before I die cut the letters, I embossed them w/ a sparkly black powder. I did the same to part of the feather & the mask. The mask is actually a large mustache punch turned upside down, lol. I cut two holes for the eyes & it became a mask. I know..as if the skull wasn’t scary enough, now he’s got a mask. The black grid bg is a leftover from TLC235 Painted Grid where I took drywall mesh, put it on a brayer, rolled it thru white paint then onto the black card stock.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Such a fun site Angie chose for the Inspiration Challenge (IC671)! I was really drawn to THIS colorful Halloween skull image. I had a new (plain) skull image so I stamped it then drew in all of the patterns w/ a multiliner pen & colored them w/ Copics. I added a few more white teeth & some dots w/ a white paint pen. 
The spider web was stamped multiple times on the black using persimmon oxide ink. Love how it gives it a spooky glow. I added the greeting onto an ornate label die cut.

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