Serendipity June Blog Hop #1!

Welcome to the June #1 Blog Hop for Serendipity Stamps!

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 June 10 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on June 11 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 Iris stamp – 50% off! 

My card is almost entirely made w/ dies. The only stamped item is the word “the” & I took it from the Wedded Bliss set. For the Lighthouse, I die cut it twice in white, twice in blue & once in mint green. After a lot of arranging, I stacked them together so that the blue would show on all sides w/ the green in the middle & a little white on the left side. I had a small piece of the wavy designer paper that I cut the top along one of the wavy lines and placed it behind the oval to resemble waves. A few little die cuts were added along w/ the two die cut words (Seas was cut from the Season’s Greetings die).

This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge & THIS is my inspiration. 

Here’s a look at the inside. I left it blank until I decide who it’s going to & on what occasion. Maybe a birthday or Father’s Day.
Please be sure to comment on all the is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!

  1. You are sooooo clever Julie! I love that you used “Season’s Greetings” to create the word “Seas” and that you used “Seas” for “Seize”! What a perfect summer card – love the bight white and blue!

  9. Awesome card!! I just love Serendipity Stamps & Dies!!

  10. What a lovely card. Nautical theme seems to be everwhere this year, and coincidentally my wedding reception has a nautical theme, because of my love for the East coast where I lived for 14 years.

  11. A fun layering of die cuts, Julie!
