Spring Blog Hop...

Floral Butterfly DieFloral Dragonfly Die
Thanks for stopping by my blog on the hop.  Be sure to check out all the blogs before the 25th and leave a comment and Mary will draw a winner randomly from all the comments.  We are showcasing Serendipity's new stamp and die combos.  The beautiful butterfly and dragonfly. 


 First off I created this wonderful spring door hanger.  I used the outline die and then stamped the dragonfly on top in a rainbow pattern.  Then I attached them all to a pretty silver ribbon.


Then I used the butterfly dies and made this card.  I just love the yellow and orange of monarch butterflies and chose to use those colors on my card.


And finally I used the butterfly die and cut it out of shrink plastic.  I colored it in sort of tie dye pattern with my copics and then hit it with the heat gun.  When I went to shrink it the air from the heat gun blew the fine bits around a lot.  So not sure what I'll be doing with this little guy, but I'll be thinking about it.
Serendipity also has a guest designer for the Spring/Summer release!

Amy, you are so creative! Love each variation of your use of the butterfly. The shrink plastic is fabulous. A 3-D pin or hair ornament would be awesome!
