Welcome to the March#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 March 5 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on March 6 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Marble Feathers Bg! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

To make my Easter card, I started by white embossing the Marble Feathers Bg onto white card stock, then I used the Distress inks to sponge the color over it for a pretty pastel bg. The Three Ducks were stamped onto the X-Press it c/s and colored w/ Copics. I used my into the window die cutting technique to cut the frame, leaving the ducks attached to it at the bottom. 

I wanted the frame w/ the ducks to be elevated from the bg, so I used those leftover pieces & strips of c/s we all have & usually throw away, and glued them to the back side to add stability & depth. The Spring die was cut 3 times & stacked to match the depth of the frame.

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

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

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS508) so a big congrats to Jeanne, aka Penny627! She has such a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I didn’t have a cute little Halloween girl, but I had a cute little Christmas girl. So I kept the basic layout & circle element, but I used different images, different colors & since there isn’t a die for this cutie, I did a complicated out of the box/into the window for her.

Sigh…I’m not gonna lie..it took me quite a while to color this lovely, then it took me longer to figure out how I was going to handle her, since she’s a bit bigger than I thought when I ordered her. To make the circle opening, after a lot of consideration, I traced around the smallest Grand circle die & used a craft knife to cut away the area around her that fell inside the circle. I used the same circle along w/ the largest of the regular circle dies to cut the silver glitter layer & put it behind her. The card started out to be 5.5″ square, but I just felt uneasy w/ it, so I cut it down to fit A2 & added just a touch of snowflake embossing on the lower corners & strips of the silver glitter on either side. It changed the look a bit, but I like the partial circle a lot better. I added a die cut Joy out of the silver glitter above the Happy Holidays that is part of the red designer paper I used to back the image.

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

Ferris Wheel IMG02777
For my Ferris Wheel shaker card, I put the image in my Misti, stamped w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics then over stamped w/ Versafine. I die cut the entire panel w/ one of the matting basics, then used a stitched rectangle die for the inside. I had to do a little into the window around the ferris wheel by determining which areas to trim around & lift above the die to keep from cutting them off. I used a clear envelope for the shaker part..sprinkled a tiny bit of glitter & added the sequins, then taped the edges shut & attached it behind the opening.  I put the cut off background back behind the ferris wheel, added some foam tape all around the edges, then attached it to a slightly larger cobalt blue layer.

For the larger stamped background, I used the Ink Spots image and the sky blue ink all over the die cut layer then attached everything to my card. 

Here are the Copics I used.
