Simply Two Peas

Today's card is for this week's Serendipity Stamps Challenge. And just what is our challenge this week you say? To make a simple card. Easy, right? Not! I have a difficult time showing restraint. LOL! So, we were to make a simple card with minimal layers, coloring, embellishments, etc. I selected these two fun stamps from the new "Pea Package Cling Set" (They're also sold separately). They seemed to just cry out for me to use Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety patterned paper and my sole embellishment was a little "pea bling".

Day Lily Sympathy

My fellow DT members Anya, Lynda, Amy and I are tackling a card sketch and Sympathy card challenge today for Serendipity Stamps. I wish I could say that this is the first sympathy card I've needed to make this year but unfortunately that is not the case. It's been a really rough year for us so far. I'm really hoping the second half of the year is much happier!

I chose this new Day Lily stamp for my focal image. Isn't it beautiful? I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Papertrey Ink card stock twice and then cut out one of the lilies. I sprayed the cut image with Lemon Meringue Glimmer mist and then placed it on dimensionals. The gorgeous flocked patterned paper is from the DCWV La Creme collection. The sentiment is also from Serendipity (With Sympathy Small) and can be found here.

Head over to Serendipity Stamps to see all the gorgeous new summer stamps that have just been released and don't forget to check out Anya, Amy and Lynda's creations!
