Serendipity Stamps New Release Blog Hop

Hi there. I am up to my elbows in house stuff, aside from the disaster that is my kitchen and first floor bathroom, the line that runs to our house from our well keeps freezing. So if we want water, we need to keep a close eye on it. It is just far too cold and has been for far too long. I am desperate for a 'normal' winter day at this point, and just slightly stir crazy.

Today I am here to kick off Day 1 of the Serendipity Stamps new release blog hop. Today the team is sharing their creations using the Shamrock Die and coordinating Happy St. Patty's Day sentiment.

You should have arrived here from Pauline's Blog. The Serendipity Stamps Blog should be your first stop - there you can find the list of the DT participating as well as the details for how you can win a prize (leave a comment!).

I die cut the very detailed Shamrock Die from avocado cardstock and then used the negative to trace and cut out a solid shape from oatmeal cardstock. I glued the two layers together, so the fancy design could stand out against the background. Some strategically placed rhinestones help to finish it off.

Comments are open until February 5th - be sure to visit all of the DT members, even we don't know where the lucky comments will be chosen from! The winners will be announced February 7th. Sweetie Jeanne Jachna is your next stop along the hop. Enjoy!
