Serendipity Stamps August Release

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  Are you hopping with Serendipity Stamps today?   We are celebrating a new fall and Halloween inspired release and there are lots of samples today featuring the new stamps and dies.   If you are then you should have reached me from Kecia's blog!  Kecia is our special guest designer this month and we are so happy she joined us for the hop.   If you'd like to start from the beginning and get all the details you can start here at Mary's blog.  
My first project features the new Oak Leaf Scroll Die and Oak Leaf Outline and Acorn Die.   As you can see they fit perfectly together and are absolutely gorgeous.  The solid die has two little acorn dies nested inside it.   The acorns have a cut line that make it super easy to detach the cap from the base to switch out colors.  I used the larger of the two acorns here.  
This project features the new tree stamp.  It has three little leaf stamps that you can cut away to make a one of a kind tree with different color leaves arranged exactly as you like.
Do you see the little heart in the bark on the trunk of the tree? How sweet is that?
There's lots more to see - a new "Boo" word die, the best wood grain stamp that I have ever seen, and lots more. 


 You're next stop on the hop is Jenny Gropp - and let me tell you folks - this girl can color!!  

But before you go.. MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE A COMMENT. One random commenter will be selected to win a $20 gift certificate off their next Serendipity stamps order.  You have until 9-1 to leave a comment.  The winners will be posted on Mary's blog on 9-2.

For another chance to win - Like Serendipity Stamps on Facebook and SHARE with a friend. One person who likes and shares on a post during the hop will also win a $20 gift certificate.

Mary Dew Lee said...

Jeanne - LOVE your cards! I love how you showed how the little leaves that come with the tree can be used separately and how you used a different color for the acorn cap!

Sue D. said...

I really like the look of the new oak leaf and acorn dies. The tree and wood grain stamps are nice as well. Very well put-together cards, Jeanne!

Donna Whitten said...

Your cards are just lovely! I love the leaf and acorn die set, they are so pretty! I'm glad you pointed out the heart on the tree trunk or I might've missed that cute idea. Thanks for sharing!

Lura said...

Love your take on autumn! That last card pulls me - reminds me of what my big tree in the front yard is about to do to me...

the leaves are so pretty. Great to get your shading through die cuts rather than with ink.
The tree is so nice. I need a big tree for my stash.
thanks for sharing some wonderful projects.

Great cards...but I LOVE the tree...the way you colored the leaves and then matched it up with the stamping, the ribbon, the button...GREAT DESIGN!!!

What wonderful autumn cards. I love how you used the word autumn on your card, because I never know what to do with words like that.
