Julie Warner –

Welcome to the May Challenge for Serendipity Stamps! This month the challenge is Flowers…stamped, die cut, designer paper, dried…whatever you have.   The sale at Serendipity Stamps this week is 20% off the alphabets category.  Good through 5/14.  And as always, we have a  have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player.

For the design team, we have the added challenge of using one of beautiful Floral Alphabet stamps.

Julie Warner –
I chose to use the Floral Alphabet S and Lg Wild Sunflower images for my card. I first stamped the Lg Sunflower onto a handwritten text designer paper and the Floral S onto white. I colored both with Copics, then die cut them both. I used my out of the box technique for the Sunflower, used a craft knife to cut & “lift” the lower petals & leaf of the sunflower, then attached it to several more die cut layers. The Floral S was attached off center to a die cut black piece then inserted under the “lifted” petals & leaf. 

The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
