Good morning and WELCOME to the first day of the week long Perfect Paper Crafting with Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop! So excited to be blogging with this wonderful group of stampers!
If you’ve come from Marybeth’s Blog, you are in the right place.
You will want to hop and comment on all the blogs… AWESOME PRIZES… I mean AWESOME!
Perfect Paper Crafting and Serendipity Stamps are both giving away a $50 Gift Certificate
Two winners will be chosen randomly from the people that have commented on all the blogs!
Winners will be announced on the PPC and Serendipity blogs on March 17th.
My first card for the hop is a window card…cut a circle from an A-2 top folding card, die cut the Serendipity Ornament die…lovin’ this die! Poked a couple holes for the twine bow, die cut some pine branches, glued them on and there you have it! It was hard for me to leave it without a sentiment, but I’ll figure something out! lol
Up close…that is dark brown card-stock in the background…helped it show up for the photos.

On this card I used the Ornament Stamp and Die set from Serendipity Stamps. I heat embossed the ornament stamp, twice on the background, then die cut the ornament die, heat embossed it and using mounting squares, adhered it to the card front. I used black pigment ink to ink up the ornament stamp all three times and Judikins Egyptian Gold embossing powder. I used the Stamp a ma jig for positioning.
The ornament stamps beautifully and the ornament die cuts perfectly!
Here’s a close up…
I used my Perfect Layers Rulers to mat the image panel and the base of the card. I love how perfect and elegant the 1/16th inch ruler cuts the mats. I’m lovin’ the new shorter rulers and the cutting mat… both are AWESOME and I’m telling you true! : )
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
I was in the mood to color, so I cut the ornament die from white card-stock so I could color it with Copics! I wanted to use my Wink of Stella Red and Silver Brush pens too! It’s Christmas…bring on the sparkle!
Then I needed some greenery to hang the ornament! poppystamps Pine Needle Border, Berry Sprig and Memory Box Ribbon Candy Border all combined to make a festive arrangement for it to hang from. Ranger Cranberry Liquid Pearls on the berries.
A festive sentiment from Serendipity Stamps, Tis the Season… stamped beautifully with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Wow….totally worth the wait Pam!!!! I absolutely LOVE your window card. I am definitely going to make one! Gor-Ge-Ous! The gold embossing is beautiful. I love the bough at the top of the card too! You rock Girl. So very, very and very nicely done!
Very pretty. Love the touch of Wink of Stellas.
These are beautiful – trying to make 5-6 Christmas Cards a month, so great inspiration! Thanks.
Beautiful projects, Pam!!! Wow!
Pam, I love all your cards and will have to order the stamp and die. Cool set for next year’s Christmas cards. Thanks so much for the inspiration. You are so darn creative! Have a great week!
Had not seen the serendipity stamps and dies before. I went on their website and could not find the ornament that you used. It makes a very pretty Christmas card and looks like you can do a lot with it. I liked what you did with the die very pretty.
Thank you Betty! Serendipity stamps have been around for a long time! Very nice stamps! If you click on the words, Ornament die and Ornament die set… it will take you directly to those options. If you click Serendipity, it takes you to the home page of the store.
Very pretty Christmas Cards! I love all the detail on them. Great inspiration to get started on Christmas early!
Lovely cards and a great variety. I especially love the liquid pearls on the berries.
I love this card. The ornament is so pretty and I love that the stamp matches the die. So stunning.
Pam, from your inspiration I went to Serendipity Stamps and ordered the die and stamp plus a few other things. Thanks again for the ideas as I want to make them for my Christmas cards this year. The sooner I get started, the sooner they will get done. Thanks!!!!
Totally awesome cards. I am so loving this ornament, and will have to check it out. You’ve used it so beautifully in each of the cards and the greenery placed as it was on each card, simply added to the beauty of this ornament. TFS & Hugs
Beautiful cards! I love the bright red and that yummy gold embossing!
Really beautiful cards, & inspiration!
Pam I can see why you like these, very detailed and pretty.

I think I would just hang the cards on the tree and forget the real ornaments!! I just love how you (and everybody else) can be so creative! Love that embossing powder too!!
Just love the pine leaf die and a must have. Also the Christmas ornament is neat.
These are absolutely stunning! Just wonderful.
Very pretty cards.
Love your cards! Thanks for the inspiration, those ornaments are really beautiful!
Beautiful cards! The first one is my favorite!
I love all 3 cards! Very useful to see same thing used in different ways.
I am in love with the pine needles die and the ornament die. The card is absolutely gorgeous.
Such beautiful cards!!
Well you’ve certainly inspired a bunch of us with these products Miss Pam. I’ll second everything everyone has already said but I’d like you to talk me into getting the smaller rulers. You KNOW I value your opinion so do your magic my friend & convince me of how these shorter ones work & what mat & cutting tool works best for you. And where do you find that wonderful Kraft cardstock? You know I love you to enable me …
Love the cards.

Gorgeous cards. I absolutely love the ornament die.
So many different looks with the same die, just beautiful all of them.
Love the way you used the die cuts. Great cards –love them all.
Oh, my goodness, these are some beautiful Christmas cards. My favorite is the first one with the suspended ornament but any of them would make the recipient delighted!
You made 3 so very different creations-all with one theme! Love them all!

Beautiful cards! I especially like the Berry Sprig die and the creative way you used it! 🙂
Wow Pam! These are all gorgeous! Such beautiful dies! Nancee 🙂
Wonderful, Pam! Really lovely Christmas cards!
Pam these cards are all beautiful, really stunning! Our cards are very similar indeed, but it wasn’t yours that I discovered on Pinterest, the one I saw had ribbon covering the ends of the die cut pine branches and I copied that feature on my card. It’s a great look though, whoever first came up with it!
