Serendipity Stamps December Challenge

Good morning everyone!

Today I have two cards for you made for the Serendipity Stamps December Design Team Challenge. We were challenged to make a Valentine's Day and an Easter card. It was fun looking to the holidays ahead!

This card was made using the gorgeous Love Scroll stamp. I embossed mine in gold, cut it out and matted it with a Labels Four Nestabilities die cut. The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny - very romantic!

My Easter card was made using the image and sentiment stamps available in the Easter Flower Corner Cling Set. These stamps are also available separately as the Easter Flower Corner and This Is the Day. I colored the image with Copic markers and highlighted with Spica glitter pens. I love the detail in Serendipity's images, yet they are really easy to color (a great combination in my book!). The cardstock is Blush Blossom and Berry Sorbet - very springy!

Thank you for the stop today, now make sure you visit the other Design Team members!


And don't forget that Serendipity also sponsors a Reader Challenge in conjunction with the DT Challenge. Check out the Serendipity Stamps Blog and Gallery for more information - play along with us and you could win a $20 Serendipity gift certificate!

Have a great one!
