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!

For the Technique Challenge (TLC711), Judy used my Scratch Paper Art from a challenge I hostess in the Dare to Get Dirty 2018 by the same name. (You can see my card & the links for that HERE.) 

I used a piece of scrap paper from my stash that had been printed w/ clip art music then used as scratch paper under something I was sponging &/or brayering. It also had splatters all over it.

The white layer was die cut w/ the leaves to let the paper show thru. A splatter image was also haphazardly inked & stamped just a bit around the leaves. I added the greeting & a die cut button, & a small strip of the same scrap paper & done!

Here’s a look at the inside. I used another piece of scratch paper that had the leaves cut out as a mask to sponge the color onto the inside of the card.

I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club October Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. 

For my Christmas card, I stamped & white embossed the Snowflake Package. I used a reverse mask around it then sponged on the tumbled glass & peacock feathers inks. A lipstick orange Copic was used to carefully fill in the bow & ribbon then I added a little Wink of Stella on top of the red. When I die cut it I did a little out of the box to keep the bow intact.


The large background is also emboss resist & I used some of the many snowflake images from the large bg stamp. I just cut the lg image apart so I could use the ones I wanted more easily. Only the first part of the greeting was used below the present so I put the rest on the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
