Serendipity Blog Hop!

Hi and welcome to the 3rd stop in the Serendipity Stamps first ever Blog Hop! We're celebrating the release of two gorgeous stamp and die sets, the Heart Scroll and Egg Scroll. If you hopped over here from Miriam's Delirium, then you're on the right track. If not, the first stop on the hop is Sue's Creative Workshop. You won't want to miss any stops along the way. (See details below!)

I have two projects to share with you today. First up is a card I made using the Egg Scroll die.

When I first got my hands on this die I was amazed by the intricate pattern. It can be used together with the matching stamp or by itself as I did here. I wish you could see a close-up of the egg. I coated it in micro-fine glitter from Glitz and it sparkles big time. The Easter Greeting sentiment is also from Serendipity Stamps and can be found here.

My next card features the Heart Scroll die. It too has a matching stamp. I chose to use it with patterned paper on its own.

Isn't it beautiful? I love how it is simple and complex all at the same time. Here I used the Love Inside sentiment from Serendipity to complete the card.

Now are you ready for the exciting news? By leaving a comment on each stop of the Blog Hop you will be entered to win a random drawing. Mary from Serendipity Stamps is giving away one Heart Scroll stamp and die set and one Egg Scroll stamp and die set. Please limit your comments to one per blog.
