Serendipity New Stamps Blog Hop

Serendipity Stamps  July... New Winter and
 Fall Stamps Blog Hop.

I love this new little tree and It will be a Christmas favorite of mine. With a different sentiment of course.

What was I thinking! Yellow and Red!!!!
This was the way I first colored the scarf , not sure why I did that because I personally don't like red and yellow. It was so easy to change up. I just stamped it again on scrap paper colored it cut it out then placed it on the original card with some foam tape. Now it even has a bit more dimentinon. I did the same thing with the star.
I tried to make the snow look like it was falling .

Some of you may already know , that when you paper piece white card stock its always a good idea to go around the edges of the cut piece with a marker in the same color. I do this most of the time , but ever since I saw a video from Karin  I am reminded to do it All the time! It makes such a difference. 

All stamps are from Serendipity Stamps .
 The rest of the Design Team will be showcasing some of the other new stamps .One random commenter will receive all 4 rubber cling stamps. You have until 12 pm  Sunday, August 4 to leave a comment. Good Luck!
Your next stop on the hop is Vickie - Smitten

Pajama Party @ WMS

Welcome to the first ever Pajama party @ Waltzingmouse Stamps
 Everyone is welcome and invited to play.
Tickle me silly, with Fine Feathers

I sure missed making cards for Waltzingmouse stamps
 challenges. I always make a card that is a bit different from
 what I normally make.

I love the bit of polka dots this Feather has.
I love polka dots and you get just enough with this feather.

I stamped my feather on vellum then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I fussy cut the feathers out but not to closely . 
Since this is the first PJ party I am not too sure how it works. I am entering this one in “ In the Background” and Tickle Me Silly!

It's a bit early for my PJ's but when I do put them on I 
will be very happy  you cant see me.

This one is my second card for "In the Background”

 I have mentioned before the anchor is the christian symbol for hope , just in case you didn’t know. 

I used Victorian Alphabet to stamp the words on the banners. 
Have fun and bring on the coffee!

Stamps used all from Waltzingmouse Stamps
The anchor is from Paper Smooches 
The banner die its from Lil Inkers Design
Good Morning!

We have a lot of changes going on with the 12 Kits!

July Blog Hop ,MCCC and STB

I really love this Delightful Dahlia Additions Stamp Set. I have the original and I am so glad I decided last minute to get this set! 
Welcome to the Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop. 

Tracey is the GD this week and when I found out I knew I wanted to try and play, so when I was making my card I kept this one in mind. This is such a beautiful card by Tracey McNeely
 I used two flowers like Tracey and just two leaves, I usually use one or three. I also added 3 sequins just not free floating like I normally do .

Same card just different pictures. I had to use my iphone, 
so not the best picture.
Keeping it short , I know there will lots to see on the hop! Enjoy!
God Bless!

I am also entering this in the Seize the Birthday

SSCB # 16 Add Fabric

 I had no idea the stamped image would be so clear on printed material , I have to say I was very pleasantly  suprised!

For this challenge we were asked to use material but it could not be a bow. I was not sure what I was going to do. I had this material I bought to and decided to see if the stamp would show up on this print . Every detail showed up , I know I will be doing this again. You should give it a try! I have only stamped sentiments on material before!

Last minute I used a Copic marker to lightly color in the leaves, I liked it non colored as well but this did give it a bit more depth.
I just can’t believe how nicely the Serendipity Stamps
 Hydrangea Large turned out! This is for sure one of my favorite flowers and I have many growing in my yard !

There are a few things I would change about the layout ( I should have framed it better) of this card but other than that I love it! I will stamp a sentiment on it when I know what I will be using this card for. 

Hope you give this a try! All you have to do is use material on your project and you have a chance to win 20$ off your order!

 40% Off coupon. The code is "40fromhigh713" good through 7/31. 

Please check out what the rest of the DT has made!

Into the Woods! Seize the Birthday Moxie Fab

I went to the Neat and Tangle site to order some more sequins , they have colors you cant find in the stores.
 After camping in Yosemite this sweet little set caught my eye and I knew the grandkids would love it! This is my first set and first and seems perfect for this challenge.
 I kept the coloring very simple and tried to keep it youthful … no blending. I also had to add one sequin.  I used Papertrey Ink embossing plate. 
Kids are waiting to go for an early morning swim so we wont have to put sunscreen on. Have to run, thanks for taking time to comment and stop by!

Paper Smooches Cool Shades

I used some Glossy Accents on the spray with just a bit of glitter !

 lunch with a few of my sisters Marykay and Maryjo , 
It was so nice spending the day with them.

 I made myself go in my craft room, first today!
 Cleaning up can be done later.
 I have had these new Paper Smooches sets on my desk since last week. I used Briny Blue  and the dies , the sentiment is from  Spiritual Sampler . Papertrey Ink Edgers #3, Lil Inkers Stitched rectangles and Connected Circles Die  cut in half. 
We don't have any big plans this weekend , so that is kinda nice. Other than my husband pruning a lot of the trees.  I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Craft dash / Seize the Birthday

Paulina Nakamura posted this sweet card and colors using Paper Sweeties

Hi , quick post! I made this card last night, took the picture today and just now had a minute to post it. Paper Sweeties it the host of this weeks dash.  I won a few sets from a friend so I couldn't  wait to play. I didn't have any time to think outside the box with this one. No time to color the hair or face, but I often leave things uncolored.  The scalloped edge was a leftover piece already cut. Luckily the flower stays in place with just the stem  because I didn't have time to glue it on. But I made it in  just under 10 min.
Paper Sweeties – Abigail   andGiddyup  

I had to share this picture of the O’Malley’s ! I am not sure where they are but my son in law got called in to work ..we have a huge fire here in Ca. 
That never stops my daughter from taking all 6 children by herself! Looks like summer fun!
 This was posted on FB and I hijacked it! 
 Some of you know I have 12 grandchildren, well…. this is half of them! I love these kids!
