For the Inspiration Challenge, Stacy chose U.S. Mint Sheets. I’ve always had a thing for postage stamps & I have a good size collection of mostly used stamps. I just love the artwork on stamps! I chose a stamp that I actually have & I found it on the site, but since then, I guess they sold out & it doesn’t show up anymore but HERE it is.

My Tiffany lamp was gold embossed onto a polished stone bg I made using Copic refills, rubbing alcohol & a gold leaf marker. After embossing the lamp & the book, I fussy cut them & added them to a pine green layer w/ a long window cut out. I added a pale peach layer behind it & gold embossed the greeting. The little butterflies were punched out of some leftovers of the bg. Little strips of the green that I cut w/ postage stamp scissors were added around the green layer.

Here’s the inside:

Welcome to the July #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 July 22 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on July 23 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 Grilling stamp – 50% off! 

For my Grilling card, I kept it fairly simple. After stamping & coloring the fun summer image, I die cut it. I had some designer paper that resembled graph paper & I die cut a piece of it & colored in random blocks. I thought it was a bit too much, so I made a narrow frame out of it & used it instead of the full piece.

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 Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC658), we are to chose a souvenir from our state or country. So I chose my home state of Texas since I have stamps for that state. And as everyone knows, Texans are pretty proud of their state. Remember the old saying...”Don’t ask a man if he’s from Texas. If he is, he’ll tell you. If he’s not, you’ll just embarrass him.” I was inspired by THIS postcard depicting the town where I grew up..though I was a little disappointed they spelled it wrong  😕 

To make my Corpus Christi (aka: Sparkling City by the Sea) skyline card, I made a bg w/ Brushos then die cut the silhouette skyline. I used another skyline die that had a bridge (because Corpus has the big Bay Bridge) & added a piece of it to the right side. I also die cut the moon & stars & the Stars word to insert it into the greeting. The inside of the card has the “Deep in the Heart of Texas” part. Now all you fellow Texans (& a few who want to be, lol) will be singing that song. You’re welcome!! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend, y’all!
