Welcome to the July #2 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 July 9 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on July 10 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Sunflower Rake! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

I love this pretty little Goldfinch! After stamping & coloring him (you can tell he’s a he, because the females are a dull olive green), I masked him then used a torn mask to cover the lower part of the layer & sponged on Distress inks on the top part. Just for fun, I splattered water across it then attached the die cut curved section w/ the Mini Scroll Heart cut out of it. I added back some of the parts you usually discard & sponged the part you usually save & added it to the inside (below). The greeting is two images combined on a little label shape.



Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

A big congrats to Shirley, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has lovely little gallery and I chose THIS to case. I kept the flowers theme & framing, but I used different images, different colors,  added a couple of frames & made mine a sympathy card.

After die cutting the white panel a couple of times, I sponged the pinks & aquas onto the center one, then stamped the greeting &  flower branch w/ the gray ink. A little color was added to the flowers & I used a white gel pen for the centers. The narrowest stitched frame was sponged aqua to match (since I didn’t have any card stock to match) & I added a gray mat inside. The dogwoods were stamped w/ gray, lightly colored w/ Copics & fussy cut to add on top of the frame. 

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

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS429) on Splitcoast asks us to “get techy” & show/use some kind of technology. I’m sure a whole lot of technology went into the space program.
In fact, growing up The Jetsons was one my fave cartoons & I couldn’t wait to grow up & have Rosie be my robot maid or have a flying space car or dinner from an electronic dumbwaiter in the wall. Hmmm…I’m still waiting!  But I do have George Jetson’s boy Elroy & his dog Astro on my card. The image was stamped, colored & fussy cut to add to a bg I made ages ago & near as I can remember, it was sponged w/ the distress inks then stenciled w/ white pigment ink. I stamped the image again on this bg in order to have the stars, which I colored in & added Wink of Stella. The cut out circle was added back w/ the greeting on top. 

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