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!

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge & I chose Caron’s Beach House as the site. It has sooo many wonderful beach decor items! And since it’s pretty close to summer, I thought it would be perfect. THIS was the item that inspired my card.
To make my beach clock, I die cut the circles & on the smaller one, stamped & colored the chair & umbrella. The sandals, seagull & sailboat were drawn in w/ a multiliner pen & the bg was colored in. I inked the woodgrain bg w/ London fog & stamped off once before stamping across the scene, then I used a gray Copic to accentuate the board lines. The die cut numbers & clock hands were added on top. For the greeting, I stamped part of it & die cut the beach part. I had to die cut a few different words from the set then cut & paste them together. 

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

I made these for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club June Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.
This was a lot of fun to make. It took a little engineering w/ the light string image but I think it accurately represents what has surely happened to us all at one time or another. And if I could have gotten away w/ it, I would have totally left them like this & called it a day. This tangled mess of lights is one reason my tree is now one of those that comes w/ lights already on it, lol. I used a stamp a ma jig to position the light string into the chaotic mess it is then colored it & added the plug on the side. I stamped just a few pine branches & 1 ornament to give the impression of the unlit tree off to the side. The greeting was made up of little die cut letters. A while back, I saw one of those hand drawn joke cards w/ this idea & thought I could create something similar. 

Here are the Copics I used.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS DesignsChristmas Light String, Pine Bough, Ornaments Galore
Paper: Staples 110# white, pine green
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Copic markers, Lil’ Inker Stitched Rectangles dies, Sizzix celebration words dies, Copic mulitliner pen


And just because I bought this set on clearance over a year ago & have never used it…I made a second card. Very easy since the stamps & matching dies pretty much do all the work. Stamped the whole image on the sand card stock, then again several more times on white, colored them, die cut them & popped the layers up on the original. 

Supplies:

Stamps: Sizzix Tree Blueprint (stamp/die combo)
Paper: Staples 110# white, sand
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories: Copic markers, MFT diagonal stitched rectangle dies

Thanks so much for stopping by!
