November Serendipity Challenge!

Shaped Cards
Here is the card I made for this months Serendipity Challenge: Shaped Cards!
I just love this stamp set, I've always wanted a goat, and I think this is as close as I'm going to get! The supplies I used are listed below! I think the one thing that made this card extra special was adding the raffia to look like real hay sticking out of his mouth!
Don't forget to check the other Design Team member's blogs:

Goat Cling Set Serendipity Stamps (1152QCL)
Green Cardstock ( I used garden green Close To My Heart)
White Cardstock
Green Ink ( I used garden green CTMH)
Brown ink (I used Chocolate CTMH)
Small hole punch or thumb tack

1. Cut a card base from the green to 6 1/2” x 4 1/4” and fold in half.
2. Cut a piece of white cardstock to 1 1/4” x 3” stamp the What was I thinking sentiment on this piece in green ink. Ink around the edges and lightly across the front with brown ink.
3. Stamp goat on white cardstock with brown ink, trim around the image.
4. Attach goat to back of sentiment towards the right side. Center the whole thing on the cardbase. Trim around the goats head with about a 1/4” border. Do not trim the sentiment to the left or your card will not stay together.
5. Using small hole punch or thumb tack make holes on each side of goats mouth where you can see the straw hanging out of his mouth on the stamp. Make sure to only punch through the top layer of the card. Place a small amount of adhesive on the inside between the holes, and thread the raffia through so the ends stick out the front. Trim ends to your liking.

Another batch of cards!

I've been stamping again! This deer card is one I made for my Dear Ole Dad's birthday! I think he'll be very happy with the big buck on it!

Isn't this little kitty just the cutest! Someone will be meowy happy to get him for Easter!

I love bling, but not so much after making this card...I stuck each and every one of those little rhinestones by hand! uggh! Pretty but a ton of work!

And this one is my favorite of all four! I am so in love with this little Serendipity Ducky! On this card I stamped and colored the image... then stamped it again and colored the flower! I cut it apart and put it on with foam tape in different levels! It really makes the flower pop!

Too early for Christmas stuff?

How about Valentines and Easter?

Here are a few cards I made up with Serendipity Stamps for Mary to send as demos! I'm not sure about the card above.. it came out a little dark for Easter, but I'm still fan of the color combo.. guess Halloween colors don't translate to Easter!

Isn't this just the cutest stamp? I love it! What says I love you like cooking for the one you love?

And last but certainly not least.. my favorite of the three.. this little ducky is sooo adorable! I colored him with my copics.. and I just love the depth they give to the flower.
