The Twinery and Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop

Hi there!

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps and Twinery blog hop! The festivities kicked off yesterday, and both teams will be sharing projects through tomorrow. Check out the Serendipity Stamps Blog and The Twinery Blog to find out who is posting.

There are also prizes available along the way - be sure to leave comments on the blogs for your chance to win goodies from both companies!

If you're following along the hop, you should have arrived here from Tifany's blog
Here is the list of today's line up:

I wanted to do something a little different than using the twine like I normally do - to tie a cute little button and bow to my card. I thought about one of Serendipity's new background stamps, and thought it would be fun to stitch some color onto the new Dandelion Background. I am partial to this big guy, and I can't wait to try out some other fun techniques using it. So here's my card..

I started by stamping the background onto Kraft cardstock. I used a hole punch to punch the center out of each flower that I wanted to stitch. At first I thought the holes would end up being too big, but they filled in nicely with the twine. Then I just stitched each petal, first using a piercing tool to make for an easier stitch. When I was done, I just used a bit of scotch tape to secure the loose end. I love the happy pop of colors! These solid color twines are especially fun!

The sentiment stamp is the large Hi There.

I won't keep you - don't forget to check the Serendipity Stamps and The Twinery blogs to find out all the details about the goodies along the hop!
