Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. I have been using on the Serendipity Stamps Design team for six months and am so excited that we have our very own challenge blog now! Serendipity Stamps Design Team member Jeanne Jachna of A Kept Life put a ton of work into getting this challenge up and running. She had some help from the very talented Anya Schrier of Life is What You Make It. Everyone knows how talented Anya is, not only designing cards, but also as a graphic designer. Anya designed all of the graphics for the challenge blog and is also re-joining the Serendipity Design Team beginning in January. How lucky are we? We also have another new Design Team member who will be joining us today...Marybeth Lopez of Marybeth's Time for Paper. Marybeth designs beautiful cards and you can expect to be totally inspired by her beautiful designs. I hope you will all leave her a little note of congratulations...she will be fabulous! Every two weeks a new challenge will be posted with lots of inspiration ideas from the Serendipity Design Team members. And prizes. Did I mention prizes too? To have a chance to win all you have to do is make a card or other project using at least one Serendipity image or die, link it on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog (where you can also get more details about the challenge) and then cross your fingers. Not only will there be a best card winner (who receives a special badge to display on their blog) , but a "random" winner too! The "kick-off" prize this week is $20 off your next purchase at Serendipity Stamps. That is a great prize, especially when you take a look at all the beautiful, detailed stamps and dies in the Serendipity store.
Ready to see what the first challenge is all about? Honeycomb. I know, I didn't know what it was either other than something sweet made by bees. It only took a quick Google search to find out that it is something really interesting and very fun to make. Here is a link to the tutorial at Splitcoaststampers by Lydia Fieldler that I used to make my honeycomb project.
Heart Outline Die. I used thin cardstock and cut two hearts at a time. Eleven hearts for each project. They are folded in half, glued right end to left end and fanned out like an accordion. I used a glue stick to glue mine together, left it dry for a while and was all ready to finish my project.
Hug Squeeze Background stamp and glued the hearts to it. I love red, pink and black together.
Serendipity is having a sale this week, a perfect opportunity for you to buy some great stamps so you will be ready to play along with our next challenge on December 19th.
**Free shipping on all US orders of $10 and up and runs from Dec. 5 - Dec 12, 2012.
Now grab yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy the Serendipity Honeycomb Projects:
