Serendipity Blog Hop - Lace Corner

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps bimonthly blog hop challenge!  The challenge this time was to use a border or corner stamp with the Rose, Cocoa, and Mint color scheme.   Serendipity has lots of corners and borders to choose from...  floral, rope (nautical or western), flourishes, and the pretty lace corner that I used on my card today.

You don't have to buy a special die to make a paper yo-yo.  I  made mine by cutting a 2" strip of pattern paper.  I punched the edge with a border punch and then scored lines every 1/4 inch.  I inked the edges and then folded the paper in a zig zag pattern and attached the two ends.  I hot glued a paper punched circle on the top and bottom of the folded paper to keep it in place.  I wanted to frame my yo yo with the lace corner stamp.  First I stamped the top right and bottom left.  There wasn't room for the entire stamp for last two corners, so I masked off the area I already stamped and then added these two corners.   I knew my bow and my tag would cover most of the "blank" areas where the stamps didn't meet.
 I finished off the card with a pretty bow, some mulberry flowers, and a pretty flourish.

I hope you liked my card and will visit the other Serendipity Design Team members and see what they've come up with for this challenge!  Just click on their names listed alphabetically below to jump to their blogs.

This is so pretty, I LOVE the yo-yo, especially how you shaded the edges. The heart is a beautiful stamp and your choices of patterned papers really compliment the headt stamp. I also love those really pretty flowers and the great bow. Beautiful card Jeanne!

So often I think cards with lots of layers just have too much going on, but you always manage to strike the perfect balance. I just love taking in all of the details on your cards, like the beautiful fabric background and intricate die cut flourish you've used here. Truly gorgeous!

Sharron said...

Beautifully done, Jeanne! Fantastic details as always and I love the colors. Your rosette and that wonderful heart die are so pretty! Your red, white & blue card for yesterday was fabulous too. The touches of gold made it extra festive. And TFS that great photo of your son and the new puppy! I don't know much about Akitas. Will she keep those gorgeous facial markings as she gets older?
