Fun, Creative Use for Serendipity Egg Dies

Hi and Hap-Bee Thursday to ya!! Time sure "flies" when you're havin' fun *Ü* I can't bee-lieve how fast my 2 months as Guest Designer for Serendipity Stamps is going-- I only have 2 more weeks left!

Anyways, while I was going through my wonderful stash of stamps and dies yesterday, I thought "What could I do with the Egg Dies that has nothing to do with Easter?" ... and with a little pinching here and a stripe-cutting there, look what you can create!!

I used the Solid Outline Egg die for his body, cutting one in black and one in yellow and then cut a couple of stripes out of the yellow one and adhered onto the black body.  And with the Egg Scroll Die, I cut out of vellum cardstock and pinched the smaller end together, added a glue dot and wha-la!

I cut the head using a circle Nestie and drew my face on.  The white teeth were an after-thought on scratch paper and my hubby said I should definitely add them.  This was one time I followed his crafting advice  (normally I do the opposite)!! LOL.  The antennae are made from crafting wire.

Of course I could've added some dazzling diamonds to his wings to make them stand out more and add that BLING that this needs.  See... after-thoughts are good things!!  Maybe I'll take these off and add that before sending.  *Ü* 

I'd LOVE to see what you can come up with using these awesome Dies from Serendipity Stamps!!  They sure are fun. 

REMEMBER:  There's a 40% OFF Coupon good for one (highest price item in your cart) Dies or Stamps at Serendipity but it ends Monday, 21st so hurry, hurry!!  *Ü*
