Welcome to the Oct #2 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 Oct 21 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Oct 22 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 Wheat Sheaf stamp  & Blessings die- 50% off! 

For my Thanksgiving Wreath card, I stamped the wreath w/ the cocoa ink & colored w/ Copics before die cutting it w/ a stitched circle die. The brown window frame was die cut as well as a piece of patterned paper. The greeting was added to a couple of stacked ribbon tags & I also used a dk brown Copic to color the ribbon (it was white). I had some multi color leaves that were from the Reverse Leaf die left over from another project so I added those, too. This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC672) & THIS was my inspiration.

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

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS606), & I chose Preethi! She has a really lovely gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the frame & layout but changed mine to fall card, used leaves instead of flowers & added a watercolor bg & some gold embossing.

For my autumn card, I inked up a watercolor bg image w/ several Distress ink pads, misted w/ water then stamped onto a die cut piece of Neenah white. After drying it, I stamped a splatter image w/ gold ink & heat embossed w/ gold powder. I have to say..this particular gold embossing powder is fabulous! I’ve tried a lot of them but this one is a very detailed, very shiny mirror gold. Anyway, I did the bg for the leaves the same way then stamped them w/ the black ink & die cut w/ their matching dies. A little gold embossed splatter was also added to the leaves. 

Here’s a look at the inside.
