Serendipity July Blog Hop #2!

Welcome to the July #2 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 July 22 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on July 23 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 Grilling stamp – 50% off! 

For my Grilling card, I kept it fairly simple. After stamping & coloring the fun summer image, I die cut it. I had some designer paper that resembled graph paper & I die cut a piece of it & colored in random blocks. I thought it was a bit too much, so I made a narrow frame out of it & used it instead of the full piece.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. 

Please be sure to comment on all the is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!

    You did such a nice job coloring this cute stamp and I like the inside of the card too.

  2. Love your card Julie! The coloring is fantastic – especially the chair…and I love the grid border – it reminds me of subway tile! And the apron inside is adorable! This would make a great masculine birthday card!

  3. Cute. I like your coloring and the framing.
