... Hello again - I'm playing along with the current Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog - SSCB#7 which is to decorate a mail-able envelope. I think the only reason I haven't played along with these challenges before is that I don't have any Serendipity stamps. But I do have a Serendipity die - so while it's not a stamp, I hope the team accept this envelope for the challenge:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Spring Baskets
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Pool Party
Die: Serenpidity - Floral Butterfly
Accessories: A2 White Lustre Envelope
This was really easy to make. I ran some white card through my Xyron sticker machine to make the back self-adhesive - can you imagine trying to get glue on all the little flourishes in this shape???? Next I put some wax paper on the card and then the die. I ran the whole bundle through my Cuttlebug several time to make sure that card and backing sheet were cleanly cut. Then I carefully removed all the waste card. I added some colour by sponging on Pool Party ink. Then it was simply a case of peeling off the backing and adhering to the front of the envelope. I left space to the side to add the address. I decided to add a sweet sentiment too - I think I'm being hopeful!!
The challenge is open until midnight US EST on 17th March - so there's still time to join in. Oh yes, there's a prize too of $20 towards some Serendipity stamps - here's hoping!!
