Welcome to the May#2 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 May 21 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on May22 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Simple Flower Set! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

My card is fairly quick since this fab die does almost all of the work for you! Since I first saw it, it’s been one of my faves (especially since I suggested it to Mary, way back when, lol)! I adore hot air balloons…it’s impossible not to smile & be happy when you see them. And I used it today because I have a friend who recently received some bad news, health wise & I’m sure she could use a smile.

After die cutting the reverse hot air balloons out of cobalt, I found some paper that had these chevrons in blues & green & I thought it went perfectly w/ the patterns in the balloons. I die cut the clouds part of the die again in white to add on top of the white stitched frame, then added the fussy cut speech bubble w/ the greeting in the lower right.

Here’s a look at the inside using some of the leftover parts. (I also used a mask of the balloon die to sponge the blue ink on the side of the envelope.)

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

Today’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS429) on Splitcoast asks us to “get techy” & show/use some kind of technology. I’m sure a whole lot of technology went into the space program.
In fact, growing up The Jetsons was one my fave cartoons & I couldn’t wait to grow up & have Rosie be my robot maid or have a flying space car or dinner from an electronic dumbwaiter in the wall. Hmmm…I’m still waiting!  But I do have George Jetson’s boy Elroy & his dog Astro on my card. The image was stamped, colored & fussy cut to add to a bg I made ages ago & near as I can remember, it was sponged w/ the distress inks then stenciled w/ white pigment ink. I stamped the image again on this bg in order to have the stars, which I colored in & added Wink of Stella. The cut out circle was added back w/ the greeting on top. 

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

Happy Easter! And a big congrats to Sue, the newest Featured Stamper (FS532) on Splitcoast! After much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the diamond shape for the main image & cute critter, but I used different images, different colors & made mine an Easter card.

The bunny in the flower pot was stamped, colored w/ Copics & the Easter greeting stamped below. I found a lt blue & yellow that went well it & die cut those.

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