Welcome to the April#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 April 23 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on April 24 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Dogwood  Branch! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

To make my card, I put the white panel into my Misti & lined up where I wanted the greeting. I stamped it 3 or 4 times, (using a piece of scotch tape to cover the last 2 lines), in order to get good coverage. Then I lined up the one straight up & down Daisy & stamped & colored it. After masking it, I stamped the other two. I had to do a little out of the box on the flowers when I die cut it. The large bg paper was die cut & since it was one of those paper pads that had a coordinating strip down the side (usually you tear these off) but I liked it so I kept it. I die cut the yellow strip using part of the Daisy Garden die to put over the seam.  A few sequins & a little stickles in the flower centers were added to finish.

I also made this for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS533) on Splitcoast. I chose THIS card of Kelly’s to case..keeping most of the colors & layout. But I used different images, different papers & turned mine vertical.

Here’s a look at the inside w/ the other two lines of the Sisters greeting. Love this greeting & I think my sis will, too! Below it are the Copics I used for the daisies.


Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS425) is He is Risen…celebrate the Resurrection or raise something up, like using embossing. I did both on my cards.

For this Easter card, I paired this beautiful new Celebrate Easter greeting w/ the Lily Cross & the Stained Glass Oval. I know the rectangle version would have worked better, but the oval is the one  I have. I kept the colors neutral & the layout clean & simple to let the images shine. First I put the cross into my Misti & stamped it w/ desert sand. After lightly coloring it w/ Copics, I overstamped it w/ metallic gold ink then heat embossed it w/ gold powder. I did the same to the frame, coloring in just a few areas. 

In real life, the gold embossing is really pretty. You can see it a bit in the pic below.

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


My second Easter card was really quick..the triple crosses were stamped on a die cut circle w/ the lilac ink, then the scripture quote was stamped on top w/ the grape ink. It was added to purple die cut & the white bg was embossed w/ a sun ray folder. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Easter! And a big congrats to Sue, the newest Featured Stamper (FS532) on Splitcoast! After much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the diamond shape for the main image & cute critter, but I used different images, different colors & made mine an Easter card.

The bunny in the flower pot was stamped, colored w/ Copics & the Easter greeting stamped below. I found a lt blue & yellow that went well it & die cut those.

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