Serendipity Stamps New Release Blog Hop

Hi there!

Serendipity Stamps has released some new spring images, and the Design Team is here today to share some creations and inspiration using the new stamps.

You should have arrived here from Vickie's blog. If you'd like to start from the beginning and get more details about the blog hop, please head to Mary's Blog.

One lucky commenter will win a $20 gift code prize to the Serendipity Stamps store. Be sure to leave a comment on EACH blog to be eligible for the prize! To enter to win leave a comment through midnight Sunday 4/27. The winner will be posted on Mary's blog on Monday 4/28.

Here's what I made using these new images:

For this card, I used the new Aprons image. I stamped it twice and colored the cute aprons with Copic markers. The sentiment is this Mother stamp.

For my second card, I created a colorful background using some of the flowers from the Flower Pops set. I used a bunch of happy colors and just layered the images. The adorable sentiment is the Happy Mother's Day Stitched. I added it over my patterned background with a bit of tied twine. I really like the way this one turned out.

And finally, this one just makes my country-loving heart happy.

This card combines the Wildflowers and Mason Jar images. I did a tiny bit of masking right around the top of the jar to give the illusion that the flowers were inside, but some strategic coloring helped to make it a bit more convincing. This was also colored with Copic markers. I sure do love a blue mason jar - did you know that the Ball Jar company has re-released the green Mason jars? My windowsill is calling for some!

From here, Jeanne is your next stop along the hop. Here is the full list, be sure to visit everyone and leave a little love for a chance to win the $20 prize!
