    Welcome to  the March (pt 2) 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 In Stictches (use faux, real, stamped.)  And for the Design Team, we’ve added the twist of using embossing/debaossing with a Serendipity die.. 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. Free Shipping on all US orders of $10 or more.   This is a great chance to snap up the stamps from the Wood Mounted Stamp sale and to throw in some grab bags.  Good through 3/26.

    For my card today, I used the beautiful Ballerina image. After coloring with Copics, I used my out of the box Nestie technique to die cut her.With the die still in place, I sponged a little antique linen ink around the edges. I did the same with the greeting. The embossed circle was done by first embossing the ornament die onto white card stock, die cutting with a circle die, then I sponged on some of the antique linen & also some rose coral chalk ink. The ballet slippers were fussy cut and added some Copic dyed seam tape and button with a narrow ribbon bow tied through it. The background is a piece of designer paper that I added more of the pink color to and sponged it around the edges. Unfortunately, I was so involved with all the elements, I totally forgot to add the stitching! We’ll just pretend I stitched, lol. Anyway, these are the Copics I used. And I’ll explain that the tutu started out colored with the red violet colors, then when I picked the dp, I had to add the peach & blush colors to warm up the pink to match.

    Congrats to Jenn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS369) on Splitcoast! After much browsing, I chose THIS card of Jenn’s to case. I kept the layout and used a girl for the main image, but I used different image, different colors and turned my bow sideways. This is also for the Sweet Stamps Challenge…Favorite Color! My fave color is green and I love it paired w/ these peachy/pink colors.

    After coloring Margery with Copics, I die cut her with a mega oval then embossed her with the oval from the Radiant Rectangles set then added her to the green die cut from the same set. The designer paper is from Prima and I used it because the vintage style seemed to go with my vintage lady. But…the paper didn’t have quite enough of the peachy pink colors so I used a Copic to add more of these colors to the paper. I also used the bisque & sardonyx Copics to color the seam binding I used for the wrinkled bow. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used. And in case you’re wondering, the blue violet was used for the shadows on Margery’s skin.
