Welcome to the June #1 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 June 10 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on June 11 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 Iris stamp – 50% off! 

My card is almost entirely made w/ dies. The only stamped item is the word “the” & I took it from the Wedded Bliss set. For the Lighthouse, I die cut it twice in white, twice in blue & once in mint green. After a lot of arranging, I stacked them together so that the blue would show on all sides w/ the green in the middle & a little white on the left side. I had a small piece of the wavy designer paper that I cut the top along one of the wavy lines and placed it behind the oval to resemble waves. A few little die cuts were added along w/ the two die cut words (Seas was cut from the Season’s Greetings die).

This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge & THIS is my inspiration. 

Here’s a look at the inside. I left it blank until I decide who it’s going to & on what occasion. Maybe a birthday or Father’s Day.
Please be sure to comment on all the blogs..it is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!

Welcome to the Aug #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 Aug 6 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Aug 7 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Airplane! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

To make my summer lighthouse card, I used a small piece of a Brushos watercolor background I had in my stash. After die cutting the white rectangle, I also die cut a large oval & placed the watercolor bg behind it. The Lighthouse was die cut once out of white & once out of royal blue & pieced together. The little windows were colored w/ a couple of yellow Copics. The Summer & lower part of the hello tag were also die cut twice each & stacked. I used the clouds from the Hot Air Balloon Reverse die & also a larger cloud on top of the Hello. I had the die cut frame leftover from something else, so I sponged on similar colors & added it behind the white layer.

Here’s a look at the inside. I left it blank for now, until I decide who it’s going to.

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!

Lighthouse Scene cu 08963
It’s week 3 of my Guest Designer spot on the Splitcoast Color Challenge. The colors this week are gray, lagoon & honey w/ the dessert being a masculine card. So I thought it would be a good time to make a Father’s Day card.
Lighthouse Scene 08965
I love the look of Prismacolor pencils on toned card stock..usually I’ll pick kraft but since one of the colors is gray, I used it instead. After putting the lighthouse in my Misti, I stamped it w/ Memento, colored w/ Prismas, then overstamped w/ Versafine. Actually, no black pencils were used on the lighthouse..just very dark grays, lt grays & white. I finished off the scene by adding the water & seagulls then added a white mat on top. The greeting had to be split to fit the vertical pennant.

Here’s a look at the inside. Since my dad lives a handful of states away, I thought this greeting was perfect. But since he was in the Air Force, I hope he doesn’t think I moved him to the Navy.

The colors of Prismas I used are:
PC938 White, PC1077 Colorless Blender, PC917 Sunburst Yellow, PC1060 Cool Gray 20%, PC1061 Cool Gray 30%, PC1063 Cool Gray 50%, PC1067 Cool Gray 90%, PC1088 Muted Turquoise, PC1022 Mediterranean Blue, PC1027 Peacock
