Welcome to the July #2 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps

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.

I have this card for the Splitcoast Color Challenge (CC694)using Red, White & Blue in honor of Independence Day! I think my patriotic colored RV is also a great representation of a favorite summertime activity…camping. I’ll tell you though..this RV is waaayyy more comfy & stylish than any camping I’ve ever done.

To make my RV, I put the image into my Misti, stamped, colored, over stamped then fussy cut it. I wanted to give the impression of a big sun behind it & hills for it to drive over.  The blue edged hills were hand cut & sponged along the top edges. The greeting was added to the top portion of the Surprise Box insert die. 

Below is the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.

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!
