On my first card,  I used the lovely Floral Sentiments 3. I stamped the poppies and one extra big poppy, colored with Copics and did an out of the box treatment when die cutting it with a large oval. On the extra poppy, I cut some of the petal in toward the center and popped them up for a little dimension. It’s framed with coral layer and the background on the right was stamped with an ODBD mini bg image. The designer paper was cut with a bracket border die and the greeting was stamped on an ODBD tag die. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

For my second card, I used the beautiful Floral Sentiments flower image and one of the Floral Sentiments 2 greetings. After stamping, coloring and die cutting the flower, I added some stickles down the center veins and a cobalt circle behind it. The greeting was die cut w/ the top part of an ODBD Recipe Card die and I resized it just a bit to make the tab narrower. The dp was die cut along the bottom edge with a border die..the cobalt band was embossed and I added an ODBD Fancy Foliage vine around the band. The white bg was also embossed

 Welcome to part two of the January challenge for  Serendipity Stamps!  We’re switching things up a bit in 2014…The challenges will now be MONTHLY so you have longer to play. The design team will still provide inspiration twice a month (every other Wednesday), but you will have the whole month to play along! The Serendipity Challenge this month is Buttons.  And for the Design Team, we’ve added the twist of using the chalkboard technique with the buttons.You can find all the details on how to play along with us at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. With each challenge we always have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player. The sale of the week is Free Shipping on all continental US orders $10 and up, good through 1/22/14.

For my Sunny Chalkboard card,  I stamped the wonderful quote with white chalk ink onto black card stock. I used a white gel pen to highlight the frame and letter K then used a sponge and a very light touch to add some “chalk dust” to the background. The half sun image was stamped on white, colored with Copics and I trimmed around the rays to insert the chalkboard underneath. The black grid layer is a left over from a painted grid technique using white acrylic paint and drywall mesh. A few die cut buttons were stacked and added to the corner. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
