  • Serendipity SSCB #25 – Shaped Cards

    Weekly-Favorite Welcome to a new challenge for  Serendipity Stamps! The Serendipity Challenge this week is a Shaped Card.

    I went with a snow globe shape for my little shaker card. The wonderful winter scene was stamped and colored with Copics then I added stickles to the snow for some sparkle and white dots to the sky for falling snow. While that was drying, I die cut a snow globe out of silver card stock and a larger circle to go with it. I used another size circle to cut a piece of acetate for the front. It is big enough to fit between the smaller and larger silver circles so the edges will be covered. For fun, I die cut a snowy border die out of white then snipped off a bunch of the snowflakes and sandwiched them between the layers.

    I traced around the snow globe shape on my folded white card and fussy cut it in the same shape. After cutting the scene into a circle, I elevated the acetate layers, making sure it had silicone sealant all the way around, then added some tiny silver beads and round silver confetti (not too much..I didn’t want it cover up the scene) before sealing them together. A silver string and bow were added to the top. So it’s a card…it’s a snow globe…it’s a shaker ornament to hang on the tree! These are the Copics I used to color the scene.

    Weekly-FavoriteWelcome to a new challenge for Serendipity Stamps! The Serendipity Challenge this week is a Tri-Shutter Card!  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.

    For my Tri-Shutter card, I used this sweet Snowman w/ Birds image. After coloring him with Copics, I die cut him using my out of the box Nestie technique. I added a lt blue die cut layer then attached him to the front section of my tri-shutter card. The purple piece was die cut w/ a fancy snow border. I didn’t use other papers on the sections to the right of him, because I liked the way all the white space showed him off.

    I added narrow sections of different patterned papers on the open sections. On the far right right panel, I added a long pennant flag with the sentiment and the snowflake on top. I added a couple of the same snowflake on the panels facing the sentiment, but so sorry…I didn’t take a pic to show it!

    After finishing, I added just a little stickles to a few areas of the snowman. If you’d like the template for this Tri-Shutter card, it can be found HERE.  These are the Copics I used to color everything.

    For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoast (WT439),  the challenge is to make your own background using stamps. My background was made using a fun splatter image w/ grape ink and a snowflake background using white ink. I also added a few of the white snowflakes to the top of my main image and stamped the tree line greeting with boysenberry ink. A few snow dots & a white line under the trees were added w/ a white gel pen. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
