this post so just to be fair, I'll choose and announce the winner on the 4th of July. Comment by midnight Thursday to have a chance…
Okay, now to the fun stuff! I am soooo very excited to be a guest designer for Serendipity Stamps' Challenge Blog this month! I've been a big fan for a long time and had so much fun playing with some really great stamps and dies! This month's theme is twine and I can't wait to see what everyone creates! For the beginning of the month, we're talking "it's hot outside" and boy is it where I live! You see, I'm about 15 miles north of San Francisco and since it is temperate most of the year, we don't have air conditioning. Ugh. Today it is 90 outside and just about the same inside my house. Blech. There are a few things I think of when it is hot outside - one is the 4th of July and the other is getting on the water!
month of July stamp with wonderful imagery for the 4th of July, colored it with some Copics, and added some Stickles for a glittery touch. I cut out and layered the image over some patterned papers wrapped with twine, stamped the sentiment, and added a few die cut stars to finish it off.
boat onto a journaling card and added some fun embellishments and some twine to finish the first card. The second card has a wonderful sentiment stamped onto a journaling card (aren't they versatile?!) I die cut the lighthouse twice in red and navy and pieced it together and finished the card with a twine "frame" and some glass glitter "sand."
