Serendipity Stamps New Release Blog Hop!! For Mom

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  You picked a great day for a visit.  The Serendipity Stamps Design Team is celebrating the latest stamp release with a blog hop.  If you're following along you should have reached me from Anya's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning you can get all the details on Mary's blog.

There's lots of beautiful flowers and some new sentiments for you to see.  I've got lots of photos for you so grab a cuppa your fave and settle in!

My first card features the new  Happy Mother's Day Stitched Sentiment   Do you see the little needle under "Mother's"?  I surrounded it with flowers from the new Flower Pops Set.  It includes 8 stamps.  First I inked up the sentiment and a background of flourishes.  Then I colored and fussy cut the flowers and layered them with adhesive foam tape.
My next card features the new Mason Jar and Wildflowers Stamps.  They work perfectly together.  I stamped the flowers first, and then using my stamp a ma jig I stamped the Jar so it wouldn't over lap any of the flowers.  It was lots of fun to color up all those pretty flowers! 
 My last project features the new Aprons  stamp.    This one makes me think of my grandmother - she always had lots of pretty aprons to keep her dresses spotless when she was cooking.   I wish I had some of them now because I'm always messing up my clothes!
I thought it would be fun to add little twine bows along the end of the clothes line to help hold them up.  A little eyelet lace peeking out from the doily seemed just natural here.   I'm going to let the cat out of the bag too - Serendipity Stamps is going to be stocking some Cheery Lynn dies soon so keep an eye out for them.  
Ready to see more?  The next stop on the hop is Jenny!  Oh and before you leave - don't forget to leave a comment.  One random winner who comments on ALL the blogs will receive a $20 gift code off their next order. You have until Midnight on Sunday March 27 to comment.  The winner will be posted on Mary's blog on Monday 4-28.  

Here's a complete list of all the blogs for your convenience.

Happy Hopping and have a great day!!  Don't forget if your a fan of Serendipity that they have a challenge blog with a new challenge every month!  It's another great way to win some great stamps!  Good Luck!!
