It's the start of a new month which means...a new challenge at Serendipity!
 Last month we had "My Girl" so it's only fair that June would be, "My Guy"!
We love seeing your designs and hope that you will play along. One entry will be chosen randomly and as always there is a $20 Serendipity Gift Certificate up for grabs. 
All challenge details can be found here on the SSCB.

The DT is adding texture to our designs along with My Guy as our theme. Before we take a look at what the girls have come up with, we have a guest designer to welcome

Just look at the beautiful etchings on the Triton Shell stamp. It was stamped in Moonlight White and heat embossed. Serendipity has beautiful letters from the Circle Alphabet and Scrolls Cling Set that I though paired nicely with the shell.
The texture on the white layer is hard to see but It is a deep embossed  woven pattern. Natural jute, enamel dots and paper washi tape adds more texture to my card.

The Bokeh technique was applied on the front as well as the inside. I ran the same woven  embossing folder and then smoothed it by running it through the Vagabond. It still shows the design, but its smooth enough to write on. Speaking of writing...Just a Quick Note is a great, "go to" stamp for touching base with someone!

Here's what Mary picked for the stamp of the month
Perfect timing to kick off those summer BBQ's!

This stamp will be 50% OFF all month long

Thanks for looking!


  1. Lovely! Excellently simple. Great work!

  2. I love all the detail on this shell stamp and it shows up beautiful against the black. This inside is beautiful too with that fun trim you stamped.

  3. Great card and love the inside.

  4. Beautiful embossing on the big shell image, Karen! Love the colors and your Bokeh looks wonderful!
