Serendipity New Dies / Stamps Bloghop!

I have two blog entries today so if you are looking for my 12 Kits of Christmas post please scroll down.    

Are you ready for this?    Serendipity has just released their very first coordinating  die /  stamp sets.   The Egg Scroll and Heart Scroll are beautifully intricate  thin metal dies.  The solid die can be used to cut a backing for the flourish die or to perfectly die cut the coordinating rubber cling back stamp.  Dies and stamps are all available individually or as a kit.   Today the design team is featuring these two sets to celebrate the release and demonstrate how versatile these sets can be.  Mary, the owner of Serendipity is making this blog party even sweeter by providing a little blog candy!!!   IMPORTANT:  Please follow along on the blog hop and leave comments for each of the designers.   Two lucky winners (randomly chosen from the comments)  will receive either the egg scroll or the flourish scroll set.   So without further delay here are the two sets:
Egg Scroll  Set                                                                          Heart Scroll Set

There are so many possibilities for these sets.   I've made several cards but am only going to show you a few today because I'm so photo heavy on this post.   This is a wedding congratulations card featuring the scroll heart die cut in foil.
I also made a clean and simple Easter Egg Card to show how quick and easy you can make a beautiful Easter card with this stamp.
 Here are some simple to follow directions to cut out your stamped images perfectly centered.
  
1.  Stamp your image.










2:  Cut out solid die to create a template





  

 

 3. Center the template over your stamped image and tape down. 
 
 4.  Insert die in opening - it will not slide around when it is seated completely.  Once positioned tape die down.







5.  Run taped down "sandwich" through your die cutter for a perfectly cut image.
Here's the list of the Serendipity Design Team Members participating in the blog hop today.  Be sure to hop to each blog and leave a little love  for your chance  to win one of these great sets.  You have until  March 2 to leave a comment so get hopping!!!
