I love leftovers, so naturally I was excited about this week's Serendipity Stamps challenge which was to create something from all those bits of paper, ribbon and embellishments left over from a previous project. I should do this challenge on a regular basis because my scrap bin is overflowing!

I chose this "Heart Quilt" stamp because a quilt is the epitome of using scraps to create something beautiful. I used some left over card stock from Papertrey Ink and remnants of an American Crafts PP used recently for Valentine's Day. The last "leftover" was a small scrap of muslin.

Visit Amy, Anya, Lynda and Jenny to see what they have cooked up with their leftovers!

It's all about the details:
Stamps: Serendipity Stamps
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper: American Crafts
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy and Vintage Cream, Distress Inks
Accessories:Muslin, Dimensionals
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Corner Chomper

A Study in Black and White

Hi everyone! I'm back after a nice little blogging break and I'm jump starting my return with this little black and white number created for this week's Serendipity Stamps challenge. Isn't this Triton Shell stamp gorgeous? I absolutely adore how much detail it has and I knew I had to use it for this black and white challenge.

I'm so excited to tell you about the new stamps that have just been released at Serendipity Stamps. You can check them out here: New Stamps! Can I just say the "Heart Teapot" is the cutest ever!
