Welcome to the Sept #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.

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 Sept 10 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Sept 11 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Rake! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

To make my fall card, I put a piece of ivory card stock into my Misti & stamped the Tree Frame w/ the Kaleidacolor rainbow ink pad a couple of times. I used a water brush to drag the colors into the image then stamped over it w/ the vintage photo oxide ink.  I ended up fussy cutting the trees & attaching them to die cut piece of ivory where I stamped the tree frame again a couple of times w/ the Kpad (to add a colored outline). The greeting was stamped w/ the Versafine ink & a couple of leaves from the Remember To set were fussy cut & added. On the bg rectangles, I stamped the Wood Grain Bg onto ivory using the oxide ink then sponged some of the antique linen & vintage photo Distress inks onto it.

Here’s a look at the inside.

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

For today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC612) on Splitcoast, I was inspired by THIS picture. I wish I had an image of Snoopy but I don’t. But it reminded me of this tree & the pile of leaves images I have so I used them.

To make my fall card, I sponged  distress inks onto white c/s then stamped the tree & added some white highlights. The moon part was stamped on a separate piece of white & fussy cut. I added a thin white & a wider black layer then attached a white frame on top. The greeting was stamped across the bottom ( I forgot it was retired, but I still like it:) The pile of leaves was fussy cut & I added a couple of little punched pumpkins.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A big congrats to Holly, the newest Featured Stamper (FS509) on Splitcoast! And a big Howdy to a fellow Texan..yeehaw! Holly has such a big, beautiful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout (but flipped it) & used similar colors, but I used different images w/ leaves instead of a wreath & some cord instead of ribbon.
The leaves were stamped on a leftover piece of Wrinkle Free Distress background done on water color paper, then fussy cut. The 2 rusty brown strips were stamped w/ a woodgrain bg & die cut. I wound the gold cord into a wreath like shape & attached the leaves on top. Pretty clean & simple!

Here’s a look at the inside.
