Serendipity Stamps & Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Hop!

Thanks for stopping by!  If you're hoping along with Serendipity Stamps and Perfect Paper Crafting you should have gotten here from Roxie's blog.   If you're just dropping by or would like to start at the beginning you can get all the blog hop details at either Mary's blog at Serendipity Stamps or Laura Lynn's blog at Perfect Paper Crafting.  

Serendipity Stamps and Perfect Paper Crafting are joining together today to show you how well both products work together. Serendipity Stamps makes gorgeous detailed stamps and dies, and Perfect Paper Crafting supplies some amazing tools to give your projects a clean professional look.   

I colored up this beautiful lilac image from Serendipity with Copic markers.  To add a little more dimension I double stamped the image, fussy cut the butterfly and leaves and popped them up on adhesive foam tape.  You can see this better in the side view close up here. 

 I wanted to find a way to show off the versatility of the Perfect Layers Rulers so I cut several colored matts to layer behind my colored image.  I cut them in different widths and colors and it was very simple to do with the Perfect Layers Rulers.   All the lines are neat and clean and evenly spaced. You can see a video and learn more about the rulers here.

 
You're next stop on the hop is Dana Joy!  But before you go make sure you leave a comment.   Serendipity Stamps and Perfect Paper Crafting are both giving away a $50 store gift certificate  to one random comment from the posts today.    You have until Midnight on Sunday March 16 to leave a comment and winners will be announced on March 17.

This is so pretty Jeanne! Serendipity Stamps do seem to have some really lovely images. I bought a couple of their wood mounted stamps several years ago, but don't know who stocks them in the UK now.
