For my floral birthday card, I first stamped two of the largest  Summer Flower Pops, colored then die cut then w/ the matching die. On one, I trimmed it closer & removed all the background petals & popped it up a bit on top of the full flower. One of the smaller flowers was used for the center & I used the yellow Copic to color the (originally clear) frosted resin stone for the very center.  The white panel was masked down the left side & the Flower Corner stamped a couple of times & colored.  After die cutting the larger gray gingham background & a ribbon out of the same paper, I attached these & stamped the greeting

Here’s a look at the inside. I wanted to color the Flower Corner but didn’t want the color to go thru, so I die cut a piece of 22# paper, stamped it, then attached it to the inside. Below it are the Copics I used. 

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!

Welcome to the June #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.

You have through Sunday June 11 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win.

For my water color cards today, I came across some Brusho backgrounds I made who knows how long ago.  I couldn’t decide if I liked the turquoise/blue bg or the rainbow bg more…so I used both!  On this  turq/blue one, I put the Mill image into my Misti and stamped it 2 or 3 times w/ Versafne (to get good coverage). I added just a few highlights here & there w/ a white gel pen then added the greeting below it. It’s edged w/ a black marker, then attached to a turq layer & a very narrow black layer.  

Here’s the inside. The greeting was shadow stamped w/ the blue ink slightly offset from the black.


On the rainbow version, I went thru the same repetitive stamping as the first one but ended up heat embossing it w/ black powder anyway. This unknown water color paper is soooo textured it made stamping a line image a little more difficult.

I die cut a narrow black square frame for it & stamped the greeting on a leftover piece of the background. A dot border was embossed on the frame between the image & the greeting.

Here’s the inside.

My card is fairly quick since this fab die does almost all of the work for you! Since I first saw it, it’s been one of my faves (especially since I suggested it to Mary, way back when, lol)! I adore hot air balloons…it’s impossible not to smile & be happy when you see them. And I used it today because I have a friend who recently received some bad news, health wise & I’m sure she could use a smile.

After die cutting the reverse hot air balloons out of cobalt, I found some paper that had these chevrons in blues & green & I thought it went perfectly w/ the patterns in the balloons. I die cut the clouds part of the die again in white to add on top of the white stitched frame, then added the fussy cut speech bubble w/ the greeting in the lower right.

Here’s a look at the inside using some of the leftover parts. (I also used a mask of the balloon die to sponge the blue ink on the side of the envelope.)
