Serendipity April Blog Hop #2!

Welcome to the April#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 April 23 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on April 24 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Dogwood  Branch! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

To make my card, I put the white panel into my Misti & lined up where I wanted the greeting. I stamped it 3 or 4 times, (using a piece of scotch tape to cover the last 2 lines), in order to get good coverage. Then I lined up the one straight up & down Daisy & stamped & colored it. After masking it, I stamped the other two. I had to do a little out of the box on the flowers when I die cut it. The large bg paper was die cut & since it was one of those paper pads that had a coordinating strip down the side (usually you tear these off) but I liked it so I kept it. I die cut the yellow strip using part of the Daisy Garden die to put over the seam.  A few sequins & a little stickles in the flower centers were added to finish.

I also made this for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS533) on Splitcoast. I chose THIS card of Kelly’s to case..keeping most of the colors & layout. But I used different images, different papers & turned mine vertical.

Here’s a look at the inside w/ the other two lines of the Sisters greeting. Love this greeting & I think my sis will, too! Below it are the Copics I used for the daisies.

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

  9. What a cute card. Your flowers are coloured to perfection. How clever to have taped the sentiment you didn’t want to use on the front. I’ll have to remember that tip.

  10. That sentiment is wonderful. Love you put the punch line inside the card. Hugz

  11. A lovely card. Such pretty layers and delicate shades.
