Big & Beautiful… and Proud to Show It!

I am talking about the new dies at Serendipity Stamps!!   Who doesn’t love pretty dies?  Seems they’re everywhere lately… and Serendipity Stamps has has come out with some big beautiful Dragonfly and Butterfly Dies. 

Today I’m showing you the new stamp, Water Lilies with the gorgeous Dragonfly Dies….  
This would be really fun with colored (or clear) glitter or chalks etc.  I wanted to keep it simple for this card to really showcase the exact pattern.  Love them!!  You can purchase just the Floral Dragonfly die separately… or you can buy the Cling Set which includes the rubber stamp as well as the floral & solid Dragonfly dies!  PLUS… if you order in the next 3 days, you will get FREE SHIPPING (U.S. only) with your order of $10 or more!!  Doesn’t get much better than that.  

For the water lillies, I stamped it on white c.s. with Bordering Blue ink and colored with Copics.  For the water, I pressed the top of my classic ink lid and used a water brush to give it some strokes like water.  Then I re-stamped the image and cut out the water lilies and pop dotted those to the main image for a li’l 3D action. 

More inspiration at the Serendipity Stamps Blog and Facebook page! 
Hope you have a great weekend…. and happy shopping!!

Oh my good ness those dragonfly dies look so wonderful with the water lilies, and they remind me of the delicate flowers in a bunch of lily of the valley I gave to our pastor's wife today. Beautiful card!
