To make my clean & simple St. Patrick’s Day card, I die cut all the pieces and parts out of a water color background I had in my stash. It was a largish leftover from something else, made w/ yellows & greens Brushos crystals. The colors were perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day card & the little bird was die cut out of an area where the greens faded into white. I liked the way it made him look more like a real bird w/ varied coloring. (The shamrock in his hat is part of the Little Critters die set.) The Lucky die was cut once out of the w/c bg & once out of a lime green I used underneath for a bit of a shadow. For the embossed edges, I used a scallop ribbons folder then cut away only one part to use as the edges on either side. The shamrock balloons were added w/ some Baker’s twine strings.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Welcome to the January 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 SundayJan 22  to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Jan 23 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Winter Wear & Winter Fun Backgrounds! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop! 

To make my Valentine card, I had a tag and little strip of water color background & thought the colors would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. I also had a little piece of white w/ the negative (left over part) of a die cut & trimmed the bottom to fit the tag; just to dress it up a bit. The Mini Scallop & Scroll dies were cut out of a paint chip I found w/ colors that went w/ my watercolor tag. One of the colors was “Coral Kiss” & I thought that went as well, so I left it. The little hearts were cut out using the Love die & the top 3/4 of the white panel was embossed w/ a woodgrain folder to add a little texture.

Here’s a look at the inside.

A big congrats to Holly, the newest Featured Stamper (FS509) on Splitcoast! And a big Howdy to a fellow Texan..yeehaw! Holly has such a big, beautiful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout (but flipped it) & used similar colors, but I used different images w/ leaves instead of a wreath & some cord instead of ribbon.

The leaves were stamped on a leftover piece of Wrinkle Free Distress background done on water color paper, then fussy cut. The 2 rusty brown strips were stamped w/ a woodgrain bg & die cut. I wound the gold cord into a wreath like shape & attached the leaves on top. Pretty clean & simple!

Here’s a look at the inside.
